Millions of women have already found that when it comes to BOTOX Cosmetic® freedom of expression is what its all about. Of course, you may have your own questions about BOTOX Cosmetic® such as how it works, the kind of results you can expect, and its safety history. This guide will answer all the questions that you may have. For even more information and to find out if BOTOX Cosmetic® is right for you, we encourage you to speak to a qualified doctor.


BOTOX Cosmetic® is the only product of its kind that is directed at the facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. It targets what are known as dynamic wrinkles, which are caused by repeated muscular contractions, such as frowning and squinting. BOTOX Cosmetic®; an injectable treatment derived from a purified protein, works by relaxing the muscles that cause these dynamic wrinkles, giving your face a more relaxed and refreshed appearance. Best of all, regular use of this simple treatment will soften expression lines and help to "stop the clock" on the development or further deepening of lines. In addition, treatment is so quick and easy that you can often have it done over lunch.


While you may only know BOTOX Cosmetic® as a wrinkle treatment, it has actually been in use for over 18 years for the effective treatment of a range of medical conditions. In fact, its been approved for medical use in Canada and in more than 75 countries for 20 different applications. Today, BOTOX Cosmetic® has become the most popular physician-administered cosmetic treatment in North America with an estimated three million treatments performed annually.


As we age, our face slowly undergoes the "3 Ds" of aging: deterioration (wrinkles and texture change), descent (droopiness of the skin), and deflation (a loss of volume). A growing number of Aesthetic Practitioners find that using a dermal filler such as Juvederm™, in combination with BOTOX Cosmetic®, yields the optimal approach to facial rejuvenation.

The combination of BOTOX Cosmetic® to treat upper facial lines, such as crow's feet, frown lines, and forehead lines, along with Juvederm™ to treat volume loss and folds in the mid to lower face, has become the new approach to achieve a more pleasing, longer-lasting, and refreshed look.


The results from BOTOX Cosmetic® are natural looking and will give you a refreshed appearance.

Since the treatment results generally last up to four months, it works out to less than $5 per day.
