How BOTOX® Cosmeic Works
The active ingredient in BOTOX® Cosmetic is a sterile form of the botulinum toxin. The ingredient has no bacteria and is quite safe.
Dr. Crispin will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into the part of your face that you want to improve. BOTOX® Cosmetic blocks the nerves in your face from sending electrical signals to your muscles. This means that the muscles will not be able to contract, an action responsible for the formation of wrinkles.
Soon, your facial muscles will relax and soften, smoothing out those unsightly wrinkles and creases. You’ll see a new, healthy, youthful appearance shortly after your BOTOX® Cosmetic appointment.
The entire procedure takes between 5 and 10 minutes, and there is no recovery time, as BOTOX® Cosmetic is not a surgical procedure. You should expect the results from your BOTOX® Cosmetic procedure to last about four months, at which point you can return to Dr. Crispin for another injection to maintain your new appearance.
