BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments and is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries. BOTOX®Cosmetic has a record of experience that aesthetic specialists know and trust. And, the safety and efficacy of BOTOX® Cosmetic have been evaluated in both Allergan sponsored clinical trials as well as in 417 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.
Derived from sources that exist in nature
BOTOX® Cosmetic contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. Formulations, potency, and approved doses vary among botulinum toxin products, which means that one product cannot take the place of another. Those are a few reasons why there is no such thing as a “generic” form of BOTOX® Cosmetic. There have been no studies to support that other products are Unit-to-Unit equivalent to BOTOX® Cosmetic.
A treatment experienced by millions of people
Approximately 10.9 million vials of BOTOX® Cosmetic have been sold in the United States since 2002, and millions of people have already made BOTOX® Cosmetic a part of what they do for themselves. Today, BOTOX® Cosmetic is the #1 selling product of its kind in the world.†
BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.
Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes that can occur over time, reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals in the sun and the environment. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet.
BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet
For the crow’s feet area, your specialist will inject 3 areas of the orbicularis oculi, the muscle that frames the side of the eye. This will be repeated on the orbicularis oculi muscle on the other eye.
Injecting BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscles that cause crow’s feet lines temporarily reduces the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.
For the frown lines area, your specialist will administer 5 injections into muscles in your forehead—1 in the procerus muscle and 4 in the corrugator muscles.
Injecting BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscles that cause frown lines temporarily reduces the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.

Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar that helps maintain facial fullness and elasticity in the skin, plays an important role in the way our skin looks, feels and functions. Hyaluronic acid retains water like a sponge, absorbing more than 1,000 times its weight. This helps to hydrate and moisturize our skin, improving overall appearance.
As the skin ages and is exposed to environmental pollutants and ultraviolet rays, the cells lose the ability to produce hyaluronic acid. As a result, this causes wrinkles to form and our face to lose definition, balance and its natural shape.
JUVÉDERM® helps to reduce the visible signs of aging by replacing hyaluronic acid to smooth lines, restore lost fullness, and keep your skin hydrated\

How are BELKYRA™ Injections Performed?
Once your first BELKYRA™ treatment session is scheduled, we recommend that you limit your alcohol intake and stop taking anti-inflammatory medications at least one week prior to your appointment. This is not mandatory, but will help make for a smoother recovery.
While this is a non-invasive procedure and you can return to your daily activities immediately afterward, you may experience some redness, bruising and swelling for a few days afterward. We suggest that you schedule your treatment near the end of the week, or over the weekend.
When you arrive for your appointment, we'll take a few "before" photos so you'll be able to see the difference once the BELKYRA® has had a chance to do its job.
Next, we'll apply either a topical analgesic, or give you a local anesthesia injection to make your BELKYRA® treatment more comfortable. Then we'll place a transparent grid onto your chin that will act as a guide for your injectionist to follow to ensure accuracy, and increase the probability of smooth, balanced results.
The treatment only takes a few minutes, and you can be on your way! If you experience any discomfort, you can apply an ice pack for 10 to 15 minutes afterward. This will also help reduce swelling.
If you and your injectionist decided you would undergo more than one treatment, your next BELKYRA® treatment appointment will be booked to take place four to six weeks after your initial treatment. On average, two to six sessions are required to achieve optimal results
