BOTOX® Cosmetic is a neuro-toxin treatment that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe lines in adults from 18 to 65 years of age for a short (temporary) period of time. It was introduced in 2002 and is the first botulinum toxin to be approved by the FDA for this type of treatment. With real, noticeable results, no surgery and no recovery time, BOTOX® Cosmetic has been consistently chosen by millions of women and their doctors.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by a healthcare professional as a simple, non-surgical treatment. Botulinum toxin injections are an excellent way to isolate specific muscles of the face that are causing laugh lines, frown lines, and other telltale signs of aging that patients are looking to temporarily erase.
The neuro-toxin must be directly injected with a needle into the muscles that are to be paralyzed. It works by preventing the release of a chemical in the muscles called acetylcholine, thereby blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. Once this chemical has been blocked, the muscles are effectively unable to move, halting the muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form.
The areas of the face that can be treated with BOTOX® include:
- The areas around the eyes to lessen the appearance of "crow's feet"
- The area around the mouth (perioral muscles)
- Forehead muscles to stop horizontal creases from appearing when the eyebrows are raised
- The area between the eyes to eliminate the "elevens" (vertical lines when eyebrows are furrowed)

How Does Botox® Work?
The cosmetic effects of BOTOX® begin to be seen right away as wrinkles on the face no longer appear when the patient smiles or frowns. During the treatment, James Christian will ask you to frown, furrow your eyebrows and smile to see which specific muscle groups need to be targeted in order to give you a smooth face that does not show wrinkles in the places that bother you.
Some side effects of BOTOX® may include:
- Tenderness of the treated areas
- Sight redness of the treated areas
These are normal reactions that the body has to both the BOTOX® solution as well as from the needle.
More serious side effects are extremely rare but can include:
- Allergic reactions
- Skin rashes
- Trouble breathing
Our BOTOX® injector will provide you with full disclosure and information prior to your treatment.
How Often Do I Need Botox?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is designed to be re-injected about every 3 to 4 months. It needs to be repeated because the body gradually removes the neuro-toxin from the muscle tissues over time. This results in a return to complete movement in the treated muscles.
Once you begin treatment by one of our anti-aging specialists, our office will automatically remind you when it is time for your next treatment.
