Feel refreshed and soften lines across your face with BOTOX® Cosmetic. This facial rejuvenation treatment has a long-standing history of patient satisfaction. Millions of people have been treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic since FDA approval in 2002, and hundreds of thousands more are treated every year. With BOTOX®, you look like you, but without furrowed brow lines or crow's feet.
What Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Do?
Certain lines on your face are formed by years of squinting, frowning, laughing and smiling. Have you ever noticed how vertical furrows form between your eyebrows when you are reading a book or sending a text? It is exactly this type of wrinkle that BOTOX® treats. These repeated muscular contractions that make facial expressions eventually form a wrinkle that doesn't go away, even once you've relaxed your face.
BOTOX® Cosmetic treats these types of expressive wrinkles, such as:
- Frown lines (the vertical lines between your brows)
- Forehead lines
- Crow's feet (fine lines at the outer corners of your eyes)
- Can help elevate the corners of brows that are drooping
It works by relaxing the muscular activity leading to these wrinkles. When the muscles cannot pull the skin into furrows, the skin is relaxed and smoothed. BOTOX® is composed of a very tiny amount of a refined protein derived from Clostridium botulinum, which is a naturally occurring bacterium. It has been used since the 1970s for a multitude of medical applications, including the treatment of crossed eyes, relief from muscular spasms, as well as control of excessive underarm sweating and uncontrollable bladder. In addition to all of these medical uses, BOTOX® Cosmetic has long been used as a safe, effective cosmetic facial treatment.
Benefits of this Injectable
Millions of people use BOTOX® for good reason. There are many benefits, including:
- No incisions

The injection appointment itself is fast and painless. Once Dr. Corey’s injector Hilla examines your face, and once you and he have discussed the changes you would like to see, he will place the injections in precise locations to soften wrinkles and fine lines. BOTOX® is injected via a thin needle that won't leave marks on your skin. You may experience redness and swelling in the hours following, but it should begin to dissipate in the next few days and can usually be concealed with makeup the next day.
