I always wanted to try Botox but was have always been afraid needles. After hearing many times that Botox injections are nearly painless, I decided to give it a try! Wow – I was worried about nothing. I couldn’t believe that I didn’t even feel a prick. I am now wrinkle free. Friends and family keep telling me how wonderful I look. Thank you making my fear of needles a part of my past.*

BOTOX® Cosmetic 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 is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
One 10-minute treatment—a few tiny injections—and within days there’s a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, which can last several months. (Results may vary.)
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those frown lines between the brows to form over time.
In 2005, almost 3.3 million procedures were performed with FDA-approved BOTOX® Cosmetic.
Frequently asked Questions:
Q: Why should I consider BOTOX® injections for cosmetic purposes?
A: As we age, we develop wrinkles and creases on the face, partly due to the action of certain facial muscles on our skin. These muscles produce creases by the constant pull they exert on our skin. Injections of BOTOX® into these specific muscles causes a temporary paralysis, which weakens the muscle. This allows the skin to relax and reduces the wrinkle.*
Q: What is BOTOX®?
A: BOTOX® (Botulinum A Toxin) is a purified protein than has been approved by the FDA since 1989 as a safe and effective treatment for eyelid spasms, muscle spasms causing crossed eyes, as well as facial spasms. Plus it has been shown to be an effective non-surgical treatment for facial lines and wrinkles.*
Q: Why choose BOTOX® over other procedures?
A: Prominent facial lines may be viewed as expressions of anger, pain, sadness, etc. Besides BOTOX®, there are many other remedies available from which to choose, for example facelifts, peels, and tissue fillers such as collagen and skin creams. What must be determined is the best procedure for the particular situation. For instance, stubborn lines on the forehead and crows feet are very resistant to most treatments. A filler agent such as collagen will only be a temporary fix to smooth out those types of wrinkles. BOTOX®, however, can decrease the lines by allowing the muscles to be without significant tension. This enables the skin to relax, resulting in a smooth appearance.*
Q: How does BOTOX® work?
A: Normally your brain sends electrical messages to your muscles so they can contract and move. The electrical message is transmitted to the muscle by a substance called acetylcholine. BOTOX® works to block the release of acetylcholine so that the muscle doesn’t receive the message to contract. The result is that the muscle spasms stop or are reduced after using BOTOX®.*
Q: How is BOTOX® administered?
A: BOTOX® is injected into the muscle. Your doctor will determine the muscle(s) in need of treatment.
Q: Does the treatment hurt?
A: A very fine needle is used for the one to three injections that are usually given per muscle. Some patients report minor and temporary discomfort from treatment.
Q: When does BOTOX® start to work?
A: You will usually see the effects of BOTOX® within three days. The maximize benefit is reached in several weeks.*
Q: How long does the effect last?
A: The relief you will feel from a single treatment of BOTOX® will normally be sustained for several months. You will notice a gradual fading of its effects. At this point you will return to your doctor for your next treatment. Usually, BOTOX® treatment is required several times a year. Symptoms may vary throughout the course of the condition, and so the degree of relief and duration of effect varies from person to person. Consult your doctor, who has special knowledge about how to achieve the best possible results with BOTOX® for your individual case.*
Q: How long can I be treated with BOTOX®?
A: Treatment with BOTOX® can typically be repeated indefinitely. BOTOX® has been used over ten years worldwide, and acceptable safety in long-term treatment has been well established.
Q: Is BOTOX® a new treatment?
A: No, BOTOX® has been used for over ten years in thousands of patients worldwide. The American Academy of Neurology, American Academy of Ophthalmology, and National Institutes of Health have recognized BOTOX® (Botulinum Toxin Type A) as a valuable treatment.*
Q: Is BOTOX® right for me?
A: Ask your doctor if BOTOX® is the right treatment for you. BOTOX® should not be used during pregnancy, if you are nursing, or if you are taking certain medications. Only your physician can determine the best course of therapy. The effects of BOTOX® may be increased with the use of certain antibiotics or other drugs that interfere with neuromuscular transmission. Ensure that your doctor is aware of any current medications you are taking. If you have any questions regarding the use of BOTOX® treatment, please consult your doctor.*
Q: What side effects may be experienced when using BOTOX®?
A: All medications have some side effects. With BOTOX®, side effects are usually transient and mild to moderate in nature. Some people notice temporary weakness of muscles or discomfort at the injection site.*

Botox & Dysport What Are They?
Botox and Dysport work by temporarily blocking the nerve receptors on the muscle to work to decrease wrinkle formation, specifically between-brow lines that resemble the number 11. By decreasing forehead furrowing, they reduce wrinkles and fine lines that currently exist and also may prevent new ones from forming. Patient’s say they look refreshed, smoother, and rested.*
In addition to cosmetic applications, many of which are considered off-label (see below), Botox is also FDA-approved for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). While the off-label uses of Dysport are still being explored, it is believed to have the same abilities, although different dosages may be required.*
Treatment of wrinkles and lines caused by movement Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) Creating wider-looking eyes * Fixing scars * Reducing pore size * Lifting the top of the nose * Lessening a gummy smile * Treating migraines and TMJ * Eliminating neck bands and cleavage wrinkles * (*indicates an off-label use).
Treatment and Results
Just like injectable fillers, a topical anesthetic may be applied to make treatment more comfortable. Then, over roughly 10 minutes (depending on how many areas are being treated), Dr. Kent Brown will strategically place several injections. Many patient add fillers to lift and contour the face.
Although the overall experience is the same as with Botox, the main difference is that Dysport starts working faster with results in several dayswhereas Botox takes longer. The results of both are believed to last about the same amount of time: on average,several months. However, after a series of injections, Dysport may last up to nearly six months.*
