BOTOX® Cosmetic is
a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium.
It is a simple, non-surgical, physician-administered treatment
that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between
the brows in people from 18 to 65 years of age. It works by temporarily
reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause those persistent
frown lines that have developed between your brows over time.
very low doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic are
administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles
that cause those stubborn lines. The treatment is usually done
in about 10 minutes, and no recovery time is needed. Within
days, you may see an improvement that can last up to 4 months. Results
After treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic,
you may look in the mirror and see a marked improvement in the
moderate to severe frown lines between your brows. Although the
results are visible, a treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic will
not radically change your facial appearance or make you look
as if you "had work done." The muscle activity that
causes frown lines between the brows is simply reduced, so you
can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases
between your brows.
Those moderate to severe frown
lines between your brows form over time as the result of muscle
activity. BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected directly
into the muscles between your brows. It works by blocking the
transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles; this
reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those persistent
lines to form.
The beauty of a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment
is that it's a simple, 10-minute, non-surgical process. A few
tiny injections, and within days there can be a noticeable improvement
in the moderate to severe frown lines between the brows that
can last up to 4 months. Results may vary. And, there’s
no recovery time. You can even do it on your lunch break.

• Dr. Paull will determine where to administer
the injections by examining your ability to move certain muscles
in your brow area. The location, size, and use of the muscles
that create a furrowed brow vary markedly among individuals.
• No anesthesia is required, although
the doctor may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic
cream prior to injecting. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief.
Most patients compare the sensation to a pin prick.
• You may resume normal activity immediately.
You may see a marked improvement in the moderate to severe frown
lines between your brows within days. Improvement may continue
for as long as a month, and could last up to 4 months.
• You can receive injections with BOTOX® Cosmetic up
to every 4 months to help you maintain the results. If you do
not continue treatments, the frown lines between your brows will
gradually look like they did before treatment.
