What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first and only FDA-approved product to temporarily improve both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines around the sides of the eyes in adults.

Derived from sources that exist in nature: 
BOTOX® Cosmetic contains tiny amounts of a highly purified protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum.

A well-studied treatment:

  • BOTOX®Cosmetic is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments and is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries. *
  • BOTOX®Cosmetic is FDA approved for moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines.
  • BOTOX®Cosmetic is the #1 selling product of its kind in the world.
  • 11 million treatments for moderate to severe frown lines have been performed since 2002. **

*VISTABEL® outside of North America. Data collected through June 2014.   **Allergan, 2009.

How does BOTOX® work?                                                                                                                         

BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your provider will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.

How many BOTOX® injections will I receive?                                                                                              

The number of injections you will receive varies. Some patients do require slightly more units and some require slightly less depending on muscle mass, movement, treatment goals, etc. This, and pricing will be discussed during your private consultation.

How long is the recovery time?                                                                                                                            

After your treatment, you can resume your day. There is minimal downtime making this treatment easy to perform over a lunch hour.

How long does the BOTOX® treatment take?                                                                                                

Your provider will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatments for you. The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes.

When will I see results?                                                                                                                                          

Botox results will not appear instantly. You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines. It takes 2 weeks to see the full expression of the treatment, with results lasting up to 4 months.

Approved Uses

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet lines, and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.

 

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

BOTOX® Cosmetic may cause serious side effects that can be life threatening. Get medical help right away if you have any of these problems any time (hours to weeks) after injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic:

 

  • Problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing, due to weakening of associated muscles, can be severe and result in loss of life. You are at the highest risk if these problems are pre-existing before injection. Swallowing problems may last for several months.
  • Spread of toxin effects. The effect of botulinum toxin may affect areas away from the injection site and cause serious symptoms including: loss of strength and all-over muscle weakness, double vision, blurred vision and drooping eyelids, hoarseness or change or loss of voice, trouble saying words clearly, loss of bladder control, trouble breathing, trouble swallowing.

BOTOX® Cosmetic dosing units are not the same as, or comparable to, any other botulinum toxin product.

There has not been a confirmed serious case of spread of toxin effect when BOTOX® Cosmetic has been used at the recommended dose to treat frown lines, crow’s feet lines, and/or forehead lines.

BOTOX® Cosmetic may cause loss of strength or general muscle weakness, vision problems, or dizziness within hours to weeks of taking BOTOX® Cosmetic. If this happens, do not drive a car, operate machinery, or do other dangerous activities.

Serious and/or immediate allergic reactions have been reported. They include: itching, rash, red itchy welts, wheezing, asthma symptoms, or dizziness or feeling faint. Get medical help right away if you are wheezing or have asthma symptoms, or if you become dizzy or faint.

Do not receive BOTOX® Cosmetic if you: are allergic to any of the ingredients in BOTOX® Cosmetic (see Medication Guide for ingredients); had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product such as Myobloc® (rimabotulinumtoxinB), Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA), or Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA); have a skin infection at the planned injection site.

Tell your doctor about all your muscle or nerve conditions, such as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease, myasthenia gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome, as you may be at increased risk of serious side effects including difficulty swallowing and difficulty breathing from typical doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic.

Tell your doctor about all your medical conditions, including: plans to have surgery; had surgery on your face; have trouble raising your eyebrows; drooping eyelids; any other abnormal facial change; are pregnant or plan to become pregnant (it is not known if BOTOX® Cosmetic can harm your unborn baby); are breast-feeding or plan to (it is not known if BOTOX® Cosmetic passes into breast milk).

Tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Using BOTOX® Cosmetic with certain other medicines may cause serious side effects. Do not start any new medicines until you have told your doctor that you have received BOTOX® Cosmetic in the past.

Tell your doctor if you have received any other botulinum toxin product in the last 4 months; have received injections of botulinum toxin such as Myobloc®, Dysport®, or Xeomin® in the past (tell your doctor exactly which product you received); have recently received an antibiotic by injection; take muscle relaxants; take an allergy or cold medicine; take a sleep medicine; take aspirin-like products or blood thinners.

Other side effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic include: discomfort or pain at the injection site; headache; and eye problems: double vision, blurred vision, drooping eyelids and eyebrows, and swelling of your eyelids.

Cheers to 2018! By Dr. Michele Couri, MD, FACOG, ABIHM

With the beginning of a new year, I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for allowing the Couri Center for Gynecology and Integrative Women’s Health the opportunity to be your women’s healthcare provider. It truly is an honor to have the privilege of caring for such wonderful and kind-hearted women as all of you. For me, my job becomes more rewarding and enjoyable with each passing year. I feel as if I am one of the most fortunate physicians around by being able to practice what I am most passionate about and still being able to do so as an independently owned practice. It is such a beautiful feeling to be able to achieve so much satisfaction and fulfillment doing what one loves.

There is no doubt that women’s healthcare is my passion. For those of you who know me well, know that I am always yearning to learn new treatments or procedures to help enhance the lives of my patients. 2018 will be an exciting year at the Couri Center. We are continuing to expand our Aesthetic Studio services at the request of many of our patients. We have added BOTOX® and KYBELLA® treatments to our menu of services provided. It has been an honor to get trained in both of these procedures, and we are seeing very exciting results in those patients already treated.

BOTOX® needs no introduction. BOTOX® Cosmetic is probably best known for temporarily improving the appearance of unwanted wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet. I recently had the opportunity to receive BOTOX®, and I am more than thrilled with the results. I no longer have frown lines that made me look angry or worried, even when I wasn’t. Gone are my forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet as well. I am very well aware that I earned every single line and wrinkle, and for that I am proud, but the empowering part of the whole thing is that it is in my control to treat them and allow me to look my best and boost my self-confidence.

KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin to permanently get rid of the unwanted “double chin”. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® eliminates fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal. Imagine eliminating your “double chin” without surgery or liposuction. KYBELLA® is a series of injections into the fat under the chin, is performed in the office without the need for an anesthetic, and has no down time. The procedure typically is performed within 15 minutes, and most patients can expect to need two to four treatments to achieve optimal results.

For those interested in any of our Aesthetic Studio services, KYBELLA®, BOTOX®, laser hair reduction, or laser skin rejuvenation, please call and schedule an appointment for a free consultation. Make this YOUR year to invest in you and feel good about yourself again.
