BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only FDA-approved skin treatment that temporarily improves moderate to severe frown lines on the forehead, around the eyes, and at the base of the nose for a more youthful facial appearance. Discover for yourself why it’s the #1 selling product of its kind in the world!
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. It temporarily reduces this muscle activity so you’ll begin to notice a visible smoothing of these lines.
For crows feet, your provider will give you this treatment into the muscle surrounding the sides of your eyes— called the orbicularis oculi muscles.
For moderate to severe frown lines, your provider will give you this treatment into 2 muscles— the corrugator and procerus muscles.

Botox is primarily used for cosmetic purposes to treat wrinkles and fine lines on the face, particularly in the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes (crow’s feet). However, it can also be used to treat certain medical conditions such as excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), migraines, and muscle spasms.
In addition to the face, Botox can also be used to treat wrinkles and fine lines on other areas of the body, such as:
Botox and Juvederm are both popular non-surgical treatments used to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but they work in different ways.
Botox is a purified form of botulinum toxin type A that is injected into the muscles of the face. It works by blocking the signals that cause the muscles to contract, thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Botox is commonly used to treat forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet around the eyes.
On the other hand, Juvederm is a dermal filler that is injected into the skin to add volume and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. It is made of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to keep the skin hydrated and plump. Juvederm can be used to treat a variety of areas on the face, including the lips, cheeks, and chin.
In summary, Botox and Juvederm are both used to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but they work in different ways. Botox blocks the signals that cause muscle contraction, while Juvederm adds volume to the skin to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. The choice between the two treatments will depend on the individual’s specific concerns and goals, as well as the practitioner’s recommendation.
Botox and Restylane are both cosmetic treatments used to improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, but they work in different ways and are used for different areas of the face.
Botox is a purified form of botulinum toxin that is injected into the muscles to temporarily paralyze them, which can smooth out wrinkles and prevent new ones from forming. It is most commonly used to treat wrinkles and fine lines in the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes (crow’s feet).
Restylane, on the other hand, is a dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid that is injected under the skin to add volume and fill in wrinkles and fine lines. It is most commonly used to treat wrinkles and fine lines in the lower face, such as the nasolabial folds (lines between the nose and mouth), marionette lines (lines from the corners of the mouth to the chin), and to add volume to the lips.
In summary, Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles to reduce wrinkles, while Restylane works by adding volume to the skin to fill in wrinkles and fine lines. The choice of treatment will depend on the area of concern and the desired results. It is important to consult with a qualified healthcare professional who is experienced in administering both treatments to determine the best option for you.
Some patients report while being treated that it feels like a pinch. Our provider will use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, ask your provider to apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.
The treatment takes approximately 10 minutes and requires minimal downtime or recovery—it’s often called a lunchtime procedure.
The effects of Botox typically last for 3-4 months, but this can vary depending on the individual and the treated area.
Botox is generally considered safe when administered by a qualified healthcare professional. However, as with any medical treatment, there are potential risks and side effects, such as bruising, swelling, and temporary muscle weakness.
Botox should not be used in individuals who are pregnant or breastfeeding, have a neuromuscular disorder, or are allergic to the ingredients in Botox. It is important to inform your healthcare professional of any medical conditions or medications you are taking before receiving Botox.
There is typically no downtime after receiving Botox, and most individuals are able to resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
Botox and dermal fillers work differently and are used to treat different areas of the face. Botox is used to temporarily paralyze muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, while dermal fillers such as Restylane are used to add volume and fill in wrinkles.
There are treatments available to reduce the effects of Botox, such as injecting an enzyme that breaks down the Botox. However, it is important to consult with a qualified healthcare professional before receiving any treatment to adjust the results of Botox.
The cost of Botox varies depending on the area being treated, the healthcare professional administering the treatment, and other factors. On average, the cost of a single Botox treatment can range from $300 to $800.
