Millions of people have already made Botox Cosmetic a part of their beauty regimen to keep their skin looking fresh and youthful. Botox Cosmetic is the only FDA approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet in adults. If you have been thinking about getting rid of those fine lines and wrinkles, here are 5 things you should know about Botox:

Does Botox Hurt?

Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your provider may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, your provider may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

When Will I See Results?

Botox takes on average 5-10 days to relax and see full results and last anywhere from 3-4 months. Some people tell me they can see a slight difference in a day or two. Most people will be at nearly full effect in one week. It is at it’s peak of effectiveness in two weeks.

What Should I NOT Do After Treatments?

  • DO NOT take Ibuprofen, aspirin, or vitamin E for 24 hours after injection
  • DO NOT massage or manipulate the injection sites for 48 hours after injection
  • DO NOT do heavy exercising for 24 hours
  • DO NOT lay down for the next 4 hours

Do men receive BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments?

Yes. BOTOX® Cosmetic has also been clinically evaluated in male patients. In clinical studies for moderate to severe frown lines, 17.5% of patients treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic were men. In the clinical studies for moderate to severe crow’s feet, male patients comprised approximately 10% of patients treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic.

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 10% of all cosmetic procedures performed in the United States in 2014 were on men—that is more than 1 million cosmetic procedures. The number of cosmetic procedures for men increased by 273% from 1997 to 2014.
