Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation for Frown Lines and Crow’s Feet with BOTOX® Cosmetic
BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the United States! BOTOX® Cosmetic is a non-invasive cosmetic neuromodulator that is FDA-approved to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate and severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines.
In men and women, the most prominent area for folds and wrinkles are creases found on the forehead, typically caused by years of frowning and squinting and wrinkles around the eyes due to aging. When skillfully injected, BOTOX® Cosmetic can temporarily reduce deep creases and wrinkles resulting in a more youthful, smoother and refreshed look.

Why A Board Certified Dermatologist and Expert Injector?
Trust your BOTOX® Cosmetic injections only with a Board Certified Dermatologist!
BOTOX® Cosmetic is best performed by board certified dermatologists who are experienced, appropriately certified injectors. Dr. Rebecca Baxt and Dr. Saida Baxt are Board Certified Dermatologists who have performed thousands of BOTOX® Cosmetic injections and can help determine the best treatment for your skin and facial rejuvenation goals.
A clinical study in JAMA Dermatology found that BOTOX® Cosmetic and filler procedures are very safe when performed by experienced board-certified dermatologists. Side effects occurred in less than one percent of recipients, and most of these were minor; such as, minor headache or bruising. Beware of low cost “Botox” providers as there is no “generic” form of BOTOX® Cosmetic. The formulations, potency, and approved doses vary among botulinum toxin products. This means that one product cannot take the place of another. Make sure you are getting authentic BOTOX® Cosmetic. We receive our BOTOX® directly from the manufacturer, Allergan.
There is a lot of artistic vision to injecting BOTOX® Cosmetic. You want a very experienced and properly trained injector, not someone who takes a weekend course, or injects in a salon, gym, or in homes. BOTOX® Cosmetic is an FDA-approved drug and is a medical procedure best performed by a licensed board certified dermatologist with expertise in the art of cosmetic medicine and NOT a nurse, physician’s assistant (PA), dentist or other type of non-cosmetic doctor.
We encourage you to understand why you should select a dermatologist and always check credentials! Read American Society of Dermatology’s “Do Your Homework…Know Your Provider”
What is BOTOX® Cosmetic Made of?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is comprised of tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet and prevent muscle activity and reduce the appearance of frown lines.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA-approved for use in the US since 2002.
What Areas of the Face does BOTOX® Cosmetic Treat?
Results may vary on different patients.
The most common area of injection is between the eyebrows where adults frequently develop a furrow as wells as crow’s feet and forehead lines. These troublesome areas respond very well to BOTOX® Cosmetic injections. Areas of the face that BOTOX® Cosmetic rejuvenates include:
- Forehead (creases, wrinkles and furrows)
- Glabellar lines (frown lines that appears as two lines between the eyebrows)
- Smile lines (around the eyes)
- Crow’s feet (around the eyes)
At BAXT CosMedical® we also use BOTOX® Cosmetic in select patients for “crinkling” of the lower eyelid, and for areas around the mouth. Additionally, BOTOX® Cosmetic works well in patients with troublesome neck bands and is used medically to treat hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating. (FDA-approval received in 2004 of primary axillary hyperhidrosis.)
Let us show you how BOTOX® Cosmetic can non-surgically help you obtain a healthy, refreshed facial appearance. (See Before and After photos)
Is BOTOX® Cosmetic Safe?
When applied by Board Certified Dermatologists in appropriate amounts, BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the safest medications and cosmetic facial treatments on the market. It has been FDA-approved for cosmetic use for over a decade, and has many medical uses as well. (See BOTOX® treatment for excessive sweating)
The safety and efficacy of BOTOX® Cosmetic have been evaluated by the manufacturer, Allergan in clinical trials and more than 417 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.
BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface; with precise injections Dr. Rebecca Baxt and Dr. Saida Baxt target the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet. Patients often worry about the losing the ability to show facial expression. When you are treated by a Board Certified Dermatologist who is trained in facial anatomy and is an expert injector you do not have to worry about losing facial expression.
The main side effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic are bruising and an occasional headache. An extremely rare and temporary side effect is eyelid droop. Again, a medically and cosmetically trained dermatologist can minimize this risk.
When BOTOX® injections are done by Dr. Rebecca Baxt or Dr. Saida Baxt the procedure is safe, quick, effective and is completed in the comfort of our office with no to minimal discomfort.*
What Can I Expect During and After a BOTOX® Cosmetic?
The injection process takes about 10 minutes. After BOTOX® Cosmetic you will be a bit puffy for about an hour or so, we will use ice in the office to reduce the swelling.* If there is a bruise, you will usually be able to use cover up to minimize it. We recommend “taking it easy” for the rest of the day after your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment. In other words, no gym or exercising.
How Long Do BOTOX® Cosmetic Results Last?
Dr. Rebecca Baxt and Dr. Saida Baxt inform patients that BOTOX® Cosmetic is not a permanent treatment. You will notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines. The timeframe for optimal results ranges between 3-4 months before a follow-up treatment is necessary. However, with continuous treatments time between each treatment can lengthen and the results may last longer.* (See Before and After photos)
Are there Alternatives to BOTOX ® Cosmetic?
We also offer Dysport® and Xeomin® treatments at BAXT CosMedical®. Dr. Rebecca Baxt and Dr. Saida Baxt inform patients that these botulinum products work in a similar manner as BOTOX® Cosmetic. Both Dysport® and Xeomin® decrease facial muscle contraction, thereby minimizing and sometimes erasing lines and wrinkles. These products are effective in the upper face. We are pleased to offer Dysport® and Xeomin® to are cosmetic enhancement armamentarium to help you refresh your appearance and look younger fast!
