When you choose BOTOX® Cosmetic to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on your face, you are choosing one of the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedures in the US today. You will see a noticeable difference in your appearance within four or five days after your injection.

BOTOX Cosmetic effects will last from three to four months, depending on the area of injection.

  • The frown lines between your eyes are the most popular treatment area. You can expect results in this area to last from three to four months after your BOTOX injection. Typicalmedicine used for this area is 20 units.
  • Crows feet at the side of your eyes will also be affected by BOTOX treatment for approximately three to four months. Typical medicine used for this area is 20 units.
  • BOTOX treatment in your jaw line can create a slimmer jaw contour. This treatment is generally given every six months. The jaw muscle is one of the strongest muscle in the body and requires 50-60 units to see a noticeable result. Usually, patients see a noticeable result after 2-3 weeks. Optimal result is achieved in one month.


BOTOX can only temporarily relax the muscles in your face that lead to lines and wrinkles, so you will require another treatment in the months after the effects wear off. Many patients undergo BOTOX Cosmetic treatments three to four times a year to keep their face looking refreshed and youthful.
