What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a noninvasive way for men and women to reduce unwanted signs of aging in the face, like frown lines, wrinkles, and indentations. The result is a naturally relaxed, youthful look.
As we age, the repetitive movements of our facial muscles cause wrinkles, lines, and creases in the skin. These become deeper over the years, and while some skin types tend to wrinkle less than others, everyone will eventually get wrinkles!
If you’d like to address the cause of wrinkles, crow’s feet, frown lines, and other signs of aging, BOTOX® Cosmetic can help.
Dysport and Xeomin, two other brands of injected facial treatment, work in the same way that BOTOX® does.
The BOTOX® Cosmetic Procedure
BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into the muscles of the face and skin, temporarily immobilizing them and smoothing out latent wrinkles and creases.
Before your appointment, you’ll have the opportunity to talk with Dr. Sadeghi about the depth of your wrinkles and the number of BOTOX® treatments to successfully treat them. Dr. Sadeghi may recommend combining BOTOX® with another noninvasive facial treatment, such as dermal fillers, to get the best results.
Areas and Concerns Treated by BOTOX®
- Frown lines and wrinkles between the brows
- Sagging brow area
- Baggy, puffy under-eye area
- Drooping neck skin, often called “turkey neck”

- Excessive sweating in the underarms (See Hyperhidrosis)
BOTOX® Cosmetic Frequently Asked Questions
Is there any downtime after injections?
BOTOX® is known as a lunchtime procedure for good reason. You can come in for the procedure and go right back to work afterward. You’ll just need to avoid rubbing the injected area for the remainder of the day.
How long will my results last?
Most people find that they want another treatment after three to four months. Some people can wait longer in between appointments; it all depends on the skin’s ability to metabolize the injection, and how strong your facial muscles are. Patients who regularly receive BOTOX® Cosmetic can often go longer without treatments!
How much BOTOX® do I need?
Before your appointment, you’ll talk with Dr. Sadeghi and his experienced staff to determine which problem areas can best be addressed by BOTOX®. As you continue to see Dr. Sadeghi for your treatment, you’ll together identify stronger and weaker areas of facial muscles, which will allow him to customize the regularity and strength of your injections.
How long before I see results?
You’ll begin to see your results from BOTOX® Cosmetic in about three days. Full results can take up to a week to develop. If it’s been a week, and you’re unsatisfied with your results, Dr. Sadeghi will meet with you to determine whether more BOTOX® is a good next step.
BOTOX® for HYPERhidrosis
When injected into the underarms, BOTOX® Cosmetic can address hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). By blocking the chemical that “turns on” the sweat glands, BOTOX® can decrease sweating in this area of the body.
“Dr. Sadeghi is a true class act. He’s extremely knowledgeable, meticulous and passionate about his work and it shows. I was so nervous when I first consulted with him, but he made me feel so comfortable and really worked with me in regards to the outcome I wished to achieve. Throughout the consult/surgery/post-op process, he always showed the utmost respect for me and assured me that we were going to achieve the most natural results as possible (which was very important to me). I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon - whether it be reconstructive or cosmetic. He knows his stuff and will help make you feel like the best version of yourself!”
