Understanding BOTOX Cosmetic
By the time it was introduced to the cosmetic world in the early 2000s, BOTOX had already established itself as a game-changer in medicine. Its active ingredient, botulinum toxin type A, relaxes overactive and spastic muscles and nerves to ease conditions including migraine headaches, eyelid twitching, and excessive sweating.
BOTOX Cosmetic works to reduce wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the muscles responsible for lines and crinkles. This simple, in-office procedure creates subtle yet lasting results that you can enjoy for months.
BOTOX & Safety
More than 11 million BOTOX Cosmetic procedures have been performed in the United States since its introduction in 2002. The most common side effects are temporary bruising and swelling at the injection site. As with any medical treatment, other side effects can occur, but these are uncommon. BOTOX is approved by the FDA for both cosmetic and medical indications, and it’s been successfully used for years to treat an array of conditions.

Are You a Candidate?
BOTOX treatment is ideal for adults who want a nonsurgical solution to improve frown lines and wrinkles. The results created by BOTOX can improve the look of the entire face, adding youthful smoothness. In general, BOTOX is a great option for nonsurgically reducing:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
- Glabellar lines, which run vertically between the brows (sometimes called “11s”)
Here at Elamar, Dr. Gill may also use BOTOX to treat a number of other aesthetic concerns. During your consultation, you’ll discuss your options together. In some cases, you may complement your results with dermal fillers or even a nonsurgical facelift called a V-Lift.
Receive a complimentary skin analysis with the VECTRA® 3D imaging system during your skincare consultation. Learn More.
A typical appointment for BOTOX is brief, comfortable, and even enjoyable thanks to the superior service at Elamar. If it’s your first visit, you’ll receive a skincare analysis using the innovative VECTRA 3D imaging system. VECTRA allows you to see your face and skin from all angles, the way other people see it. With this knowledge, you can choose exactly which areas of your face you wish to address.
If you decide to have BOTOX Cosmetic, Dr. Gill first cleanses your face. He then carefully injects the product in and around your areas of concern. Each injection lasts for only a moment and feels a bit like a quick pinch. After your appointment, you may return to your regular activities immediately. However, you should take care to avoid bending or stooping or rubbing the treatment area for the remainder of the day, as this can disrupt your results.
The results of BOTOX take some time to develop, so you won’t see an instant improvement. Instead, you can expect to see a noticeable improvement within 5 days or so. Depending on which areas you’ve had treated, your results may last as long as 4 months. You may return to Elamar for a touch-up appointment once you begin to see your wrinkles returning.
