BOTOX: Cosmetic

For skin that gives you an excuse to smile, trust the experts at Swan Dermatology & Aesthetics to precisely administer responsible BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments. As we age, our skin loses its elasticity over time, and severe lines can form around the brow and forehead, and near the eyes.

A non-surgical BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment temporarily reduces or eliminates the appearance of frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet and lines around the lips and on the chin. While the effects are not permanent, they usually last about three to six months and the treated area will return to its pretreatment appearance if you choose not to continue treatments.

No anesthesia required. No surgery. No recovery. Just a few tiny injections that takes about 10 minutes. BOTOX® Cosmetic is safe, widely tested, approved by the FDA and is the most popular cosmetic procedure performed in the U.S.

+ Frequently Asked Questions

How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work? BOTOX® Cosmetic works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles; this reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those persistent lines to form.

When can I expect to see results from a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment? Within days, you may see a marked improvement in the treated areas. Lines may continue to improve for up to a month. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of men and women rated the improvement in their appearance as moderate to better 1 month after treatment. Results may vary.

How long does BOTOX® Cosmetic last? Results from treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic can last for 3-6 months. If you discontinue treatment, the lines gradually will look like they did before treatment.

Who can administer BOTOX® Cosmetic? Any authorized healthcare professional can administer BOTOX® Cosmetic, but dermatologists, plastic surgeons, ophthalmologists, otolaryngologists (ear, nose, and throat doctors), or other physicians specializing in cosmetic procedures are generally more experienced. Dr. Lori Swan is a board-certified dermatologist with extensive experience in administering BOTOX® Cosmetic since 2000.

Is treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic painful? Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Prior to injecting, your physician may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes. Many people return directly to work or normal activity following BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment.
