BOTOX® Cosmetic is a highly effective, nonsurgical procedure that can dramatically reduce your toughest wrinkle - the one between your brows - within seven days. The effects last for up to four months. This FDA-approved medication can also be used to treat certain eye disorders such as crossed eyes (strabismus) and uncontrolled blinking (blepharospasm), and to treat certain muscle spasms or movement disorders (cervical dystonia, torticollis).


Botulinum toxin relaxes muscle by blocking the release of a chemical called acetylcholine. It is a purified protein administered in a simple nonsurgical procedure that temporarily improves the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people aged 18 to 65. During treatment, very low doses of BOTOX Cosmetic are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles that cause those stubborn lines between the brows.


There are a few possible side effects, including headache, respiratory infection, flu syndrome, temporary eyelid droop, and nausea. This is not a procedure you should take lightly; BOTOX should only be administered in a medical setting by a licensed physician. If you are interested in BOTOX, contact us at JEA and your doctor will discuss the procedure with you, including all the risks and benefits.
