What to Expect
How does it work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet-the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily reduces this muscle activity so you’ll begin to notice a visible smoothing of these lines.
For temporary improvement of moderate to severe crow’s feet, your doctor will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscle surrounding the sides of your eyes-called the orbicularis oculi muscles.
For temporary improvement of moderate to severe frown lines, your doctor will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into 2 muscles-the corrugator and procerus muscles.
Will I look overdone?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by Dr Hanna who is licensed,trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy. It is important to talk to Dr Hanna about the results you want from treatment.
Does the treatment hurt?
Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Dr Hanna uses ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, Dr Hanna may apply topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.
How long does treatment take?
The treatment takes approximately 10 minutes and requires minimal downtime or recovery – it’s often called a lunchtime procedure.
