What Is Botox® Cosmetic?

Botox® injections temporarily remove crow’s feet, frown lines, and other types of facial wrinkles. Treatment with this popular neuromodulator is both non-surgical and minimally invasive.

The Botox® Cosmetic solution is FDA-approved and safely paralyzes specific muscles in the face that cause wrinkles. Injections usually lasts up to four months and injections can be repeated as necessary when facial wrinkles reappear.

The Botox® Injection Procedure

The treatment process involves applying very low doses of Botox® Cosmetic in specific areas of the face. Almost no redness or swelling occurs following injection. No anesthesia is required and the entire procedure takes no more than 10 minutes.


After Botox® Cosmetic treatment, patients may immediately return to work and resume normal activities. Treatment will gradually take effect in three to five days. It is important that you keep your head elevated (e.g., do not lie down or bend over) for approximately two to three hours after your procedure.

Potential Risk

While side effects are uncommon, some side effects include headache, flu-like symptoms, temporary eyelid droop, and nausea. Our cosmetic surgery office in Nashville, Tennessee uses only FDA-approved Botox® Cosmetic brand toxin which is manufactured by Allergan.
