Frequently Asked Questions
What is Botox® Cosmetic?
Botox® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine (onabotulinumtoxinA) that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period. Botox® Cosmetic is administered by Dr. Quintana as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows.
How does Botox® Cosmetic work?
Botox® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of the “11s,” the moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows.
How fast will I see results with Botox® Cosmetic?
Within days, you may see a marked improvement in the moderate-to-severe frown lines between your brows. Lines continue to improve for up to 30 days, and results can last for up to 4 months. Individual results may vary.
How long does Botox® Cosmetic last?
Visible results have been shown to last up to 4 months. Your results may vary – be sure to talk to your healthcare provider about what you can expect and when to schedule your next appointment.
Is treatment with Botox® Cosmetic painful?
Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Before injection, your physician may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes. Most patients are in and out of the physician’s office without downtime following Botox® Cosmetic treatment.
Will I still be able to make facial expressions?
Although the results are visible, treatment with Botox® Cosmetic will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is temporarily reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
What are the common side effects of Botox® Cosmetic?
The most common side effects associated with Botox® Cosmetic injections are redness, bruising and swelling. These local reactions are temporary and can be diminished by applying ice to the area. Botox® Cosmetic can cause a temporary eyebrow or eyelid ptosis (drooping) or asymmetry. This reaction is also temporary. Side effects are minimized when Botox® Cosmetic is injected at the recommended dose and administered by a qualified healthcare professional. Dr. Quintana discusses all benefits and possible side effects during your one-on-one consultation.
Best dermatologist ever. Wouldn’t go anywhere else in new york city. They did an incredible job with my botox. So much so that I went back for laser hair removal. – Anonymous
