Other component of the second stage of treatment is the use of Botox.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine (onabotulinumtoxinA) from Allergan, that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in people for a temporary period of time.


It is administered by a physician with a proper training (like a plastic surgeon), being injected directly into the muscles between the brows and other facial muscles in different concentrations. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form on the face.

Botox is directed to both women and men for the treatment and prevention of facial wrinkles, it's been used in nearly 11 million treatments since its introduction in 2002.

Within days it is possible to observe results, you may see a marked improvement in the moderate-to-severe frown lines between your brows. Lines continue to improve for up to 30 days, and results can last for up to 4-6 months, though individual results vary.

Although the results are visible, a treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is temporarily reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows and other facial areas.

Discomfort during the treatment is usually minimal and brief. Prior to injection, we usually anesthetize the area with an anesthetic cream or local anesthetic. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes.   Side effects associated with the injection include localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling and bruising, that tend to be minimal in hand of experienced physicians, though it is important for you to know them.







You shouldn't receive treatment with Botox if you you have the following:

- A disease that affects your muscles and nerves (such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis [ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease], myasthenia gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome).

- Asthma or emphysema

- Allergy to any botulinum toxin product

If you have any doubt feel free to consult us and ask any questions before treatment, in any case the surgeon will ask your medical history and antecedents to provide a safe treatment with the best results possible.
