What is BOTOX Cosmetic?
BOTOX Cosmetic is a non-surgical treatment that helps temporarily improve the moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. Those moderate to severe vertical lines between the brows are sometimes referred to as 1’s, 11’s, or 111’s.

Years of squinting, concentrating, or frowning can cause your skin to furrow and crease. As time passes, your skin becomes less elastic and those moderate to severe frown lines remain- even when your muscles aren’t contracting. With BOTOX Cosmetic, you can get real, noticeable results and still look like yourself. So you can still frown or look surprised, but without the wrinkles or creases between your brows.
This is a quick FDA approved 10-minute procedure that requires no downtime or recovery - it’s often called a lunchtime procedure. BOTOX Cosmetic has an over 95% satisfaction rate.
BOTOX Cosmetic starts to work within 24-48 hours. Most people see significant improvement at 7 days, with results continuing to improve for up to a month. Visible results have been proven to last 3-4 months. However, your results may vary.

Smile Lines (Parentheses) – These lines run vertically from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Marionette Lines – These lines are the vertical facial wrinkles and folds that form below the corners of the mouth. These lines can sometimes give the appearance of sagging and/or a downturned expression. Vertical Lip Lines – Facial Wrinkles above and around the lips can begin to appear over time due to ordinary lip muscle movement. However, environmental factors such as exposure to sunlight, smoking and stress can also contribute to how the area around our lips ages and the formation of vertical lip lines. The good news is that JUVEDERM XC dermal filler can soften these lines with typically just one treatment.
