Will my face still show emotions and expressions?
BOTOX COSMETIC® is intended to enhance your look, not change it - you can still smile and be expressive.
When will I see results and how long will they last?
You'll begin to see results as soon as 24 hours after your treatment, and the lines may continue to fade for up to one week afterwards. The effects can last up to 4 months, sometimes longer.
What is the treatment like?
A BOTOX COSMETIC® treatment is quick and simple, with no downtime. After meeting with Dr. Bowdridge to determine your desired outcome, the procedure itself takes only 10 to 15 minutes. A tiny amount of BOTOX COSMETIC® is injected with a fine needle into the muscles being treated - this process is virtually painless.
What happens when the treatment stops working?
The effects of BOTOX COSMETIC® will gradually disappear until the treated area regains movement. For best results, continue treating the area every four months, or however often is suggested by Dr. Bowdridge.
How long has BOTOX COSMETIC® been available in Canada?
BOTOX COSMETIC® has been approved for use since 2001.
Are there creams that are better than Botox Cosmetic?
No scientific evidence supports that creams work better than Botox Cosmetic. While creams work well on the surface of the skin to help with skin texture, BOTOX COSMETIC® works below the surface of the skin to relax the muscles that are the root cause where lines and wrinkles form.
