What is BOTOX?

BOTOX is an approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines.

BOTOX is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries. BOTOX has a record of experience that aesthetic specialists know and trust. And, the safety and efficacy of BOTOX have been evaluated in both Allergan-sponsored clinical trials as well as in 417 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.

BOTOX contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. Formulations, potency, and approved doses vary among botulinum toxin products, which means that one product cannot take the place of another. Those are a few reasons why there is no such thing as a “generic” form of BOTOX. There have been no studies to support that other products are Unit-to-Unit equivalent to BOTOX.

Approximately 10.9 million vials of BOTOX have been sold in the United States since 2002, and millions of people have already made BOTOX a part of what they do for themselves. Today, BOTOX is the #1 selling product of its kind in the world.

Botox Frequently Asked Questions FAQs


How does BOTOX work?

BOTOX targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows. Will BOTOX make me look like I’ve had work done?

BOTOX is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy. It is important to talk to your specialist about the results you want from treatment.



Does BOTOX treatment hurt?

Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX feels like a pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.



What were the common side effects seen in clinical studies?

Three percent of patients experienced eyelid drooping in the frown lines studies and 1% of patients experienced eyelid swelling in the crow's feet studies. Other possible side effects include dry mouth; discomfort or pain at the injection site; tiredness; headache; neck pain; eye problems: double vision, blurred vision, decreased eyesight, and dry eyes; and allergic reactions. These are not all of the possible serious side effects of BOTOX. Please see the Important Safety Information including Boxed Warning and Medication Guide, and talk to your specialist.



How long does the treatment take?

Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatments for you. The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes.



What is the average treatment cost?

Your cost not only includes the price of the product but more importantly, the skill and expertise of the specialist or healthcare professional who is administering your treatment. BOTOX is a technique-sensitive treatment— Professionals at MI Body Contours & Cosmetics are licensed and trained and have experience treating patients with BOTOX. Be wary of discount products or “cheap” BOTOX—if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.


When will I see the results?

You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.



How many injections will I receive?

For the crow’s feet area, your specialist will inject 3 areas of the orbicularis oculi, the muscle that frames the side of the eye. This will be repeated on the orbicularis oculi muscle on the other eye.

For the frown lines area, your specialist will administer 5 injections into muscles in your forehead—1 in the procerus muscle and 4 in the corrugator muscles.




How long is the recovery time after treatment?

After your treatment, you can resume your day. There is minimal downtime and your specialist may give you specific aftercare instructions.



Do men receive BOTOX treatment?

Yes. BOTOX has also been clinically evaluated in male patients. In clinical studies for moderate to severe frown lines, 17.5% of patients treated with BOTOX were men. In the clinical studies for moderate to severe crow's feet, male patients comprised about 10% of patients treated with BOTOX.
