Botox and Fillers
You’ve probably heard of BOTOX® Cosmetic, but did you know:
- It’s the first and only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily smooth moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet lines, and frown lines in adults
- BOTOX® Cosmetic is a one-of-a-kind formulation—there’s nothing exactly like it
So, if you’re bothered by those deepening lines and have thought about treatment to temporarily reduce them, ask for BOTOX® Cosmetic by name.
Because only BOTOX® Cosmetic gives you BOTOX® Cosmetic results. Make it part of what you do—for you!
BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet lines, and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.
Botox and dermal fillers are both cosmetic treatments given through injections – they do not involve surgery. However, Botox contains purified bacteria that freezes muscles, and fillers contain ingredients that add fullness to areas that have thinned due to aging.
You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy. It is important to talk to your aesthetic specialist about the results you want from treatment.
In studies for forehead lines, 9% of patients experienced headache, 2% had brow drooping, and 2% had eyelid drooping. In the frown line studies, 3% of patients experienced eyelid drooping, and in the crow’s feet studies, 1% of patients experienced eyelid swelling. Other possible side effects include: discomfort or pain at the injection site; headache; and eye problems: double vision, blurred vision, drooping eyelids, dry eyes, and swelling of your eyelids. These are not all of the possible serious side effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic. Please talk to your specialist and see Important Safety Information throughout this brochure.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
BOTOX® Cosmetic may cause serious side effects that can be life threatening. Get medical help right away if you have any of these problems any time (hours to weeks) after injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic:
- Problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing, due to weakening of associated muscles, can be severe and result in loss of life. You are at the highest risk if these problems are pre-existing before injection. Swallowing problems may last for several months.
- Spread of toxin effects. The effect of botulinum toxin may affect areas away from the injection site and cause serious symptoms including: loss of strength and all-over muscle weakness, double vision, blurred vision and drooping eyelids, hoarseness or change or loss of voice, trouble saying words clearly, loss of bladder control, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.
BOTOX® Cosmetic dosing units are not the same as, or comparable to, any other botulinum toxin product. Please see additional Important Safety Information throughout this brochure.
