BOTOX® Cosmetic

Botox is arguably the most popular cosmetic procedure in the globe. It produces real results and a noticeable difference within 48 hours, is only slightly uncomfortable, and can be administered in minutes, meaning that you don't need to take time off work to receive your treatment.

How to use Botox Cosmetic

OnabotulinumtoxinA cosmetic injections (the generic name for Botox Cosmetic) should only be used as directed by Dr. Cohen.

Botox works by relaxing the muscles in the area where it's injected, improving the look of facial lines and wrinkles and giving the skin a smoother appearance. The dose of medication varies depending on the area being treated and your personal circumstances, such as any medical conditions, your body weight, current medications, and so on.

If you're a good candidate for Botox, Dr. Cohen will administer the injection into the muscles in the target area. The medication should be received as directed, with repeat injections every 2 - 6-months depending on various factors. If you are unable to make an appointment, please contact us to reschedule at a more appropriate time, whether it's for treatment or follow-up.

Am i a candidate for Botox?

Most adults are good candidates for Botox Cosmetic injections. However, the treatment may be discontinued if you're found to be allergic to botulinum toxin or any of the other ingredients. Dr. Cohen may recommend alternative treatments if you have an infection at the site where the injection should be administered, or if you have Eaton Lambert syndrome, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or myasthenia gravis.
