BOTOX® Cosmetic May Be the One for You

Your 1's, 11's, or 111's are those moderate to severe vertical frown lines between your brows.

Years of squinting, concentrating, or frowning can cause your skin to furrow and crease. As your skin becomes less elastic, those moderate to severe frown lines remain—even when your muscles are not contracting.

With a few tiny injections, BOTOX® Cosmetic blocks nerve impulses to the injected muscles, which reduces the muscle activity that causes those persistent 1's, 11's, or 111's to form. This reduced muscle activity helps reduce the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between your brows.

Whether you're a 1, 11, or 111, BOTOX® Cosmetic may be right for you.

BOTOX Cosmetic is an FDA-approved treatment consisting of a safe, purified form of botulinum toxin. It works by blocking the nerve impulses that cause facial muscles to contract and eventually form wrinkles. The substance is injected via tiny needles directly into the problem areas of your face, and most patients find the small injection stings easy to tolerate. You'll be able to go back to your normal activities immediately.

You'll feel excited to look in the mirror each morning for the next few days as you see your wrinkles fading and a more youthful, energized-looking you starting to appear. Results of the treatment last a few months, with many patients finding their follow-up injections lasting longer.

Risks of the treatment are minimal. The most common side effects include headache, nausea, flu-like symptoms, and eyelid droop. These conditions are temporary. A few patients experience bruising and swelling that resolves itself within a few days. Some people note temporary facial pain and muscle weakness.
