- The lines that appear between your brows
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent that works at the muscles that cause wrinkles. The relaxed muscle allows the skin to smooth out persistent lines that develop over time.
BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments usually last about 15-20 minutes and keep the muscles that cause lines relaxed for up to four months. Results are visible within seven to 10 days after treatment, and treatment is fast, simple, and minimally invasive.

Commonly Asked Questions and Answers about BOTOX® Cosmetic:
Where is BOTOX® Cosmetic Used?
BOTOX®Cosmetic primarily addresses lines in the skin known as “dynamic wrinkles,” such as those between eyebrows. These lines are normally less noticeable when your face is relaxed.
Am I a good candidate?
Candidates generally range between the ages of 25 and 65, as wrinkles in individuals over 65 are considered “static” and do not disappear when the skin relaxes. There are other procedures that target static wrinkles. However, each patient is unique, and private consultations are recommended to determine the best and most effective treatment plan.
How is BOTOX® Cosmetic administered at AVIE!?
A small amount of BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected with a fine needle into the targeted areas. The amount of liquid that enters the skin is very small, and patients experience only minimal discomfort in the form of a slight pinch. No anesthetic is necessary, and you can continue with your everyday activities immediately following the procedure.
Are the injections painful?
The injection needle is very small, which normally prevents you from experiencing any discomfort. The pinching sensation experienced lasts only a short time, and you can return to your usual activities without any painful after effects.
When will I notice the difference, and how long will it last?
Patients usually see the full effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments two to 14 days following the procedure, although this may be hastened by contracting the facial muscles. Results normally last for three to four months, and repeat treatments result in longer-lasting effects.
What happens as treatment begins to wear off?
After three to four months, the effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic begin to wear off and wrinkles reappear, though often not as deep or visible as they were prior to treatment. To sustain smooth skin and a youthful look, three to four treatments are usually required. By returning for repeat treatments, fewer injections are required to maintain younger looking skin as the treatment wears off.
Is there any downtime?
No. Following treatment, patients usually return to their jobs and normal activities immediately. It is recommended, however, that you avoid exercise, heavy lifting, and massaging the injected area for one day.
How much does BOTOX® Cosmetic cost?
BOTOX®Cosmetic is sold by the unit; the total number of units needed varies from person to person. The average person needs between 20-30 units.
