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.



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.

2018: Creating a Lifestyle You can Live With By Leslie Rusch Bayer, RD, LDN, CPT

With the start of a new year, resolutions are often highlighted and pushed by gyms, exercise apparel companies and weight loss companies. Advertisements promote guaranteed weight loss, as well as how you can discover the perfect swimsuit body and fit into your smallest jean size yet. These companies promise they have the plan that will work for you, as well as every other person, but never does. We often give up and do anything, but often forget the impact these choices have on our own health along the way. Will you appreciate losing thirty pounds if you immediately gain forty pounds as soon as you are off “their” plan? How much money are you willing to spend on shakes, soups and bars that do not provide the results promised? When frustration hits and thoughts of hopelessness and desperation cross your mind, I encourage you to reassure yourself that there is hope, and rethink your strategy.

Imagine if, instead of focusing on weight loss, we all focused on improving health; and not just not being sick, but truly trying to understand how we as individuals can feel and function better. Get rid of calorie counting and restrictions. Eliminate counting carbs. Stop listening to the people telling you that the potatoes or bananas you are eating are making you fat. Instead of looking for what not to do, let’s begin to discover what you CAN do to feel better, improve metabolism and discover a healthier perspective – long term.

The Couri Center specializes in something unique: YOU! We want to teach you what your body requires and how to thrive. Dr. Couri has helped countless women answer the question of why. Why can’t I lose weight? Why do I have high cholesterol? Why do I feel bloated and sick after I eat? Why don’t I have energy? This year, instead of reaching for the latest gimmick or fad, let us help teach you about your own unique self.

The Couri Center offers an array of customized programs designed to uncover your current health status, so we can then create your custom blueprint for improving and optimizing how you feel. Whether you are trying to lose weight, eliminate medication and disease or balance hormones, we understand, and specialize in YOU.

A current patient who is a busy, business-owning, 52-year-old female wanted to share her recent testimony of Dr. Couri’s TLC: Total Lifestyle by Couri journey.

  1. What symptoms were you experiencing before beginning the TLC program?

I was experiencing fatigue, brain fog, achy joints, asthma, rosacea, high blood pressure with a diabetes diagnosis        looming. I also struggled losing weight.

  1. What interested you the most about the TLC program?

It is a closely monitored program that was customized for me based on my results from blood tests.

  1. How was your health prior to beginning the program? What did you learn from your blood work?

I had a very high level of inflammation. I was also showing elevated markers of heart disease and diabetes. I learned I am gluten intolerant, and have sensitivities to egg and dairy.

  1. How does TLC differ from other diets and programs you have tried in the past?

The TLC program is science-based and completely customized to me.

  1. How have the nutritional changes and recommendations impacted how you are eating/shopping/thinking about food?

The TLC program teaches a lifestyle, not a diet. I had to completely change my dietary thoughts. The support I received during and after the program have changed how I look and feel at food, eating and exercising. I enjoy food; I don’t see it as “bad.” Now it is MY lifestyle.

  1. Is the program hard?

Because the program is customized and so much support is given, is not hard at all.

  1. Which symptoms have you noticed improvement? Did your labs improve?

I now have normal blood sugar. I have no sign of diabetes. I cut my blood pressure medication in half and the brain fog has subsided. My joints do not ache and I have not used an inhaler for asthma since I started the program. I lost 37 pounds and I am still losing weight. ALL of my labs have improved. My primary care doctor is amazed!

  1. What did the TLC program teach you?

I have learned to plan meals based on my own blueprint and I eat more purposefully. I have found an exercise routine that fits my style and schedule.

  1. If you had not completed the TLC program, where do you think your health would be today?

My health would have continued to go downhill. I am sure I would be taking more medication and feeling terrible.

  1. If you could recommend TLC to a friend, what would you say?

The TLC program works! It is customized and unique to you because it is based on your labs. The support you receive is excellent.

  1. What is your outlook on your health now?

I feel 10 years younger. I don’t have fatigue and brain fog. I take less medication. I have also discovered a lot of new foods that I love!

  1. What are you recommendations to those who are thinking about trying TLC?

I highly recommend TLC-IT WORKS!

Can you relate to this story? Have you tried to explain your symptoms and feel as though “no one understands”? Are you tired of being sick and tired? Let us help. I encourage you to attend our Lifestyle Soiree on January 11. We will spend the evening discussing the impact our science-based, integrative programs have had on women-just like you. Let this be the year you finally understand your body better than you ever have. Expect a casual and comfortable setting.
