BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, nonsurgical treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe lines and wrinkles between the brows, forehead and side of eyes in people from 18 – 65 years of age. It is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is widely used by both men and women who want to smooth, reduce and temporarily eliminate wrinkles and fine lines.
The actual treatment takes just a few minutes and is administered to the site(s) on your face via tiny injections. It may take up to 2 weeks to see a noticeable improvement. Clinical results for moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, forehead and side of eyes can last up to 3 months. Results are typically successful but may vary between patients depending on the person.
The day of your appointment
Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment. Please let us know if you are pregnant, have allergies, or are taking any medications. If you have any questions about your treatment, then please ask our medical staff about what’s involved with the Botox Cosmetic injection.
During the procedure
Your Botox Cosmetic injectable treatment will be administered by either a skilled Registered Nurse (RN), Physician’s Assistant (PA), or Doctor (surcharges may apply for appointments requested with a doctor). We will try our best to make you comfortable and will accommodate any request you might have. No anesthesia is required, although your medical professional may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream. The treatment, on average, will take about 10 – 20 mins.

There is no recovery time needed. However, we recommend you avoid strenuous activities/ exercise. You may be asked by your medical professional to avoid certain medications. Please follow all aftercare instructions provided by your nurse, PA, or doctor. If you have any concerns or questions after your treatment, then please contact us at (818) 507-0909
