The treatment Searcy Dental Associates trusts

#1 selling product of its kind in the world*

BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is the only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily improve both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet in adults. You can get treated in both areas at the same time—that’s the beauty of BOTOX® Cosmetic.

*Data collected through December 2014.

How does it work?

BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily reduces this muscle activity so you’ll begin to notice a visible smoothing of these lines. For temporary improvement of moderate to severe crow’s feet, your doctor will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscle surrounding the sides of your eyes—called the orbicularis oculi muscles. For temporary improvement of moderate to severe frown lines, your doctor will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into 2 muscles—the corrugator and procerus muscles.

Will I look overdone?

BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a technique sensitive treatment. 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 provider about the results you want from treatment.

Does the treatment hurt?

Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your provider may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, your provider may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

How long does treatment take?

The treatment takes approximately 10 minutes and requires minimal downtime or recovery—it’s often called

a lunchtime procedure.

What were common side effects seen in clinical studies?

Three percent of patients experienced eyelid drooping in the frown lines studies and 1% of patients experienced eyelid swelling in the crow’s feet studies. Other possible side effects include: discomfort or pain at the injection

site; headache; and eye problems: double vision, blurred vision, drooping eyelids, and swelling of your eyelids. These are not all of the possible serious side effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic. Please talk to your provider and see

Important Safety Information on pages 2 and 15.

Approved Uses

BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription

medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily

improve the look of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines

and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.


BOTOX® Cosmetic may cause serious side effects that

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

may affect areas away from the injection site and cause

drooping eyelids, hoarseness or change or loss of voice,

trouble saying words clearly, loss of bladder control,

recommended dose to treat frown lines, crow’s feet lines, or

both at the same time.
