What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, crow’s feet and other wrinkle lines in adults.
How Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Work?
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. Dr Kashouty or Dr Yono will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your wrinkles within days.
Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatment Hurt?
Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area.
What Were Common Side Effects Seen in Clinical Studies?
Three percent of patients experienced eyelid drooping in the frown lines studies and 1% of patients experienced eyelid swelling in the crow’s feet studies. Other possible side effects include: discomfort or pain at the injection site; tiredness; double vision, blurred vision, etc. Please see the important safety information including boxed warning and medication guide, and talk to your specialist.
How Long Does the Treatment Take?
Dr Kashouty or Dr Yono will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatments for you. The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes.
What is the Average Treatment Cost?
Your cost not only includes the price of the product, but more importantly, the skill and expertise of the specialist who is administering your treatment. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. Dr Kashouty and Dr Yono are both licensed and trained and have experience treating patients with BOTOX®.

When Will I See Results?
You may begin to notice results within 48-72 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 3-4 months. Individual results may vary.
How Many Injections Will I Receive?
Every patient is unique; therefore, the number of units and injections differ from one person to another. Typically, for the crow’s feet area, your specialist will inject 2-3 areas. For the frown lines area, your specialist will administer 5-7 injections into muscles in your forehead. Other areas can also be injected. Dr Kashouty or Dr Yono will discuss all different options with you.
How Long is the Recovery Time After Treatment?
After your treatment, you can resume your day. There is minimal downtime and your specialist may give you specific aftercare instructions.
