BOTOX Cosmetic Overview

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary).

BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by Dr. Samuels and her nurse providers as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows.

What Should I Expect?

You’ll look like yourself – only with less noticeable frown lines and crow’s feet. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. Dr. Samuels and her nurse providers are medical experts in facial anatomy and use techniques that will allow for natural expression.

The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes

Dr. Samuels and her nurse providers will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you.

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

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

Return to your daily routine

Treatment requires minimal downtime or recovery; it’s often called a lunchtime procedure. You’ll be able to go about your normal routine immediately after you leave your specialist’s office.

Cost considerations

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. Your cost not only includes the price of the product, but more importantly, the skill and expertise of Dr. Samuels and her nurse providers.
