With real, noticeable results, no surgery and no recovery time, there are many reasons why BOTOX® Cosmetic has been chosen by millions of women and their doctors.
What Is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look lines and wrinkles for a short period of time (temporary).
BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by a healthcare professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity.
BOTOX® Cosmetic has an established record of experience that your doctor knows and trusts – it’s precise and predictable. 92% of 303 patients surveyed were satisfied with the results of their BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments.
Visible results have been shown to last up to 4 months. Your own results may vary.

Why Does Skin Age?
Aging skin and wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, or damage caused by free radicals. The 11s – those vertical lines that appear between your brows – result from muscle contractions. When you concentrate, squint, or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. After years of frequent contraction, those wrinkles can linger even after the muscles are at rest.
Severe Primary Axillary Hyperhidrosis- Sweating Underarms
Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for severe sweating, where patients with hyperhidrosis may sweat up to four or five times more than normal, far exceeding what is needed to regulate body temperature. Severe underarm sweating may be exacerbated by stress, emotion or exercise, but often occurs spontaneously. BOTOX® injection is a minimally invasive treatment approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2004 to treat the symptoms of severe underarm sweating (severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis) when medicines used on the skin do not work well enough in people 18 years and older. The effects of treatment are temporary, lasting approximately 6 months. It is not known whether BOTOX® is safe or effective for severe sweating anywhere other than your armpits.
BOTOX® Cosmetic for Men
BOTOX® Cosmetic is certainly not just for women. If you are a man and think it’s time to do something about those wrinkles or folds, talk to your doctor about whether BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you.
- 6% of total BOTOX® Cosmetic procedures are performed on males (313,714 procedures)1
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular minimally invasive physician administered aesthetic procedure for males (314,000 procedures)2
How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines or wrinkles.
When will I see results from a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment?
Within days, you may see a marked improvement. Lines continue to improve for up to 30 days, and results can last for up to 4 months. Individual results may vary.
How long does BOTOX® Cosmetic last?
Visible results have been shown to last up to 4 months.1 Your own results may vary – be sure to talk to your healthcare provider about what you can expect and when to schedule your next appointment.
Will I still be able to make facial expressions?
Although the results are visible, a treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxin A) will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is temporarily reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
