The Effects of Botox®

Excessive muscle spasms cause wrinkles, which can make you appear older. Botox® works by paralyzing the muscles for both men and women, thus preventing muscle spasms. This physically affects the facial muscles so that they appear less stiff.

Patients who Benefit from Botox®

Men and women alike will benefit from Botox® if they want to reduce the appearance of lines or wrinkles. These effects last for a few months. During your initial consultation, your Botox® professional will discuss if you are a potential candidate for Botox and the typical results that you can expect. Please remember that possible results do not represent a guarantee.

How Long Do Botox® Treatments Last?

Botox® treatments are injected directly into the face. They take from 24 to 72 hours to work but in some cases, visible results can take up to 14 days to appear. Their website provides specific information at botox.com.

The results from treatments usually last from three to six months. The body eventually breaks down the chemicals and develops new receptors so that muscle movement eventually returns, resulting in the reemergence of former wrinkles. Various factors impact how long Botox will last:

  1. Your metabolism rate – a higher metabolism could lessen the length of time that treatments last
  2. The strength of your facial muscles and their resistance to treatment
  3. How often and how much you participate in cardio exercise, which shortens the effectiveness of treatments
  4. Results usually do not last as long if this is your first treatment.
  5. How many treatments you have had as you will generally experience more lasting results with more treatments
  6. The competence of the professional who administers treatments and
  7. How the Botox® is stored or diluted.

Important Safety Information, Including Boxed Warning:

WARNING: Distant Spread of Toxin Effect | Postmarketing reports indicate that the effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic and all botulinum toxin products may spread from the area of injection to produce symptoms consistent with botulinum toxin effects. These may include asthenia, generalized muscle weakness, diplopia, ptosis, dysphagia, dysphonia, dysarthria, urinary incontinence and breathing difficulties. These symptoms have been reported hours to weeks after injection. Swallowing and breathing difficulties can be life threatening and there have been reports of death. The risk of symptoms is probably greatest in children treated for spasticity but symptoms can also occur in adults treated for spasticity and other conditions, particularly in those patients who have an underlying condition that would predispose them to these symptoms. In unapproved uses, including spasticity in children, and in approved indications, cases of spread of effect have been reported at doses comparable to those used to treat cervical dystonia and at lower doses.

Contraindications | BOTOX® Cosmetic is contraindicated in the presence of infection at the proposed injection site(s) and in individuals with known hypersensitivity to any botulinum toxin preparation or to any of the components in the formulation.

Warnings & Precausations | Lack of Interchangeability between Botulinum Toxin Products. The potency Units of BOTOX® Cosmetic are specific to the preparation and assay method utilized. They are not interchangeable with other preparations of botulinum toxin products and, therefore, units of biological activity of BOTOX® Cosmetic cannot be compared to nor converted into units of any other botulinum toxin products assessed with any other specific assay method.

Spread of Toxin Effect | Please refer to Boxed Warning for Distant Spread of Toxin Effect. No definitive, serious adverse event reports of distant spread of toxin effect associated with dermatologic use of BOTOX® Cosmetic at the labeled dose of 20 Units (for glabellar lines) have been reported.

Injections In or Near Vulnerable Anatomic Structures | Care should be taken when injecting in or near vulnerable anatomic structures. Serious adverse events including fatal outcomes have been reported in patients who had received BOTOX® injected directly into salivary glands, the oro-lingual-pharyngeal region, esophagus and stomach. Safety and effectiveness have not been established for indications pertaining to these injection sites. Some patients had preexisting dysphagia or significant debility. Pneumothorax associated with injection procedure has been reported following the administration of BOTOX® near the thorax. Caution is warranted when injecting in proximity to the lung, particularly the apices.

Hypersensitivity Reactions | Serious and/or immediate hypersensitivity reactions have been reported. These reactions include anaphylaxis, serum sickness, urticaria, soft-tissue edema, and dyspnea. If such reactions occur, further injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic should be discontinued and appropriate medical therapy immediately instituted. One fatal case of anaphylaxis has been reported in which lidocaine was used as the diluent and, consequently, the causal agent cannot be reliably determined.

Cardiovascular System | There have been reports following administration of BOTOX® of adverse events involving the cardiovascular system, including arrhythmia and myocardial infarction, some with fatal outcomes. Some of these patients had risk factors including pre-existing cardiovascular disease. Use caution when administering to patients with pre-existing cardiovascular disease.

Pre-existing Neuromuscular Disorders | Individuals with peripheral motor neuropathic diseases, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or neuromuscular junctional disorders (eg, myasthenia gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome) should be monitored particularly closely when given botulinum toxin. Patients with neuromuscular disorders may be at increased risk of clinically significant effects including severe dysphagia and respiratory compromise from typical doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic.

Human Albumin | This product contains albumin, a derivative of human blood. Based on effective donor screening and product manufacturing processes, it carries an extremely remote risk for transmission of viral diseases. A theoretical risk for transmission of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) also is considered extremely remote. No cases of transmission of viral diseases or CJD have ever been identified for albumin.

Pre-existing Conditions at the Injection Site | Caution should be used when BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is used in the presence of inflammation at the proposed injection site(s) or when excessive weakness or atrophy is present in the target muscle(s); and when used in patients who have marked facial asymmetry, ptosis, excessive dermatochalasis, deep dermal scarring, thick sebaceous skin or the inability to substantially lessen glabellar lines by physically spreading them apart.

Adverse Reactions | The most frequently reported adverse events following injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic include blepharoptosis and nausea.

Drug Interactions | Co-administration of BOTOX® Cosmetic and aminoglycosides or other agents interfering with neuromuscular transmission (eg, curare-like nondepolarizing blockers, lincosamides, polymyxins, quinidine, magnesium sulfate, anticholinesterases, succinylcholine chloride) should only be performed with caution as the effect of the toxin may be potentiated. Use of anticholinergic drugs after administration of BOTOX® Cosmetic may potentiate systemic anticholinergic effects. The effect of administering different botulinum neurotoxin serotypes at the same time or within several months of each other is unknown. Excessive neuromuscular weakness may be exacerbated by administration of another botulinum toxin prior to the resolution of the effects of a previously administered botulinum toxin. Excessive weakness may also be exaggerated by administration of a muscle relaxant before or after administration of BOTOX® Cosmetic.

Use In Specific Populations | BOTOX® Cosmetic is not recommended for use in children or pregnant women.
