Frequently Asked Questions About BOTOX® CosmeticJuly 15th, 2022
BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most popular non-surgical treatments available. Millions of wrinkle-smoothing, line-preventing, skin-boosting injections are administered each year. Even so, it’s normal to have questions about adding BOTOX Cosmetic to your beauty routine.
What Does BOTOX Cosmetic Do?
BOTOX Cosmetic temporarily blocks nerve signals in the treated area. Often, the injections are used to prevent muscle contractions that cause lines and wrinkles. You can also get BOTOX Cosmetic while you’re young to help delay the formation of these unwanted signs of aging.
Other potential applications for BOTOX Cosmetic include:
- Slimming oversized jaw muscles
- Improving skin tone and texture
- Minimizing neck bands
- Providing subtle lip enhancement

Will My Face Look Overdone or Frozen?
You can feel confident that your results will look natural when you visit a qualified provider. BOTOX Cosmetic is a technique-dependent treatment that requires a skilled injector. When administered properly, it won’t dramatically alter your appearance. You’ll still see yourself in the mirror and in photographs. Just expect a rejuvenated version who has fewer lines and wrinkles.
How Long Does BOTOX Cosmetic Last?
BOTOX Cosmetic produces temporary results that last up to four months for moderate to severe frown lines. Factors such as the areas you decide to treat, your metabolism, and your habits can change that timing. Maintenance injections are generally recommended three times a year.
You might be able to get more mileage out of your results by avoiding unprotected sun exposure, reducing your stress levels, moisturizing your skin, and quitting nicotine. One study also found that taking a zinc supplement might increase the duration of the toxin’s effect.
