BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is FDA-approved to temporarily improve both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow's feet in adults. You can get treated in both areas at the same time— that's the beauty of BOTOX® Cosmetic.
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. BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily reduces this muscle activity so patients will begin to notice a visible smoothing of these lines.
For temporary improvement of moderate to severe crow's feet, Dr. Jacobs will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscle surrounding the sides of your eyes— called the orbicularis oculi muscles. For frown lines, BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into 2 muscles—the corrugator and procerus muscles.
The treatment takes only 10 minutes and has little to no downtime. That is why it is often referred to as a "lunchtime procedure."
