/ Botox® VS Cosmetic Surgery
There are a lot of factors to keep in mind when considering BOTOX® or cosmetic surgery. We’ve written out a few of the biggest comparison points here that you can consider. Of course, this is not an all-inclusive comparison and you should still do your own research but this should at least give you a good starting point.
Treatments can cost as little as a couple of hundred dollars. Even though the cost of regular treatments may add up over time, many find it easier to budget for rather than a single large upfront cost.
Results are temporary which allows you the ability to test different treatments over time to find what works best.
Minor Side Effects and Little Risk
Typical side effects are minor such as headaches, mild nausea, mild pain at the site of the injection…etc. (contact us for all possible side effects). Other severe allergic reactions can happen but are rare.
Virtually No Recovery Time
Practically Instant Results
Results from injections can be seen almost immediately and improve over the next few days as swelling and redness goes away.
Results Are Permanent
This is a double-edged sword. If your results are good, it’s nice that they will last permanently. But if your results are not good, you’re pretty much stuck with them (unless you want to pay for another surgery).
Higher Risk of Complications or Infection
Longer Recovery Time
Results Are Slow
Botox® Cosmetic History
Years ago, the Allergan company acquired a product called onabotulinumtoxinA and saw its potential for therapeutic use. The company conducted clinical trials and submitted the data to the FDA, which shepherded the product’s first approved therapeutic use.
1989: THE FIRST FDA APPROVAL
OnabotulinumtoxinA received FDA approval for therapeutic use in 1989 and was rebranded BOTOX®. Through expanded research into aesthetic uses Allergan later commenced clinical trials to study the treatment’s safety and efficacy for moderate to severe frown lines.
2002: THE FIRST TREATMENT APPROVED FOR COSMETIC USE
On April 15, 2002, the FDA approved BOTOX® as a temporary aesthetic treatment for moderate to severe frown lines in adults and requested the product be marketed as BOTOX® Cosmetic to distinguish aesthetic from therapeutic uses. It was the first treatment of its kind to be approved for an aesthetic use and today is the only product FDA-approved to make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines look better in adults.
BOTOX® Cosmetic quickly became one of the world’s most recognized and iconic brands. Approved for use in 95 countries, BOTOX® Cosmetic has become the #1 selling treatment of its kind around the world.
OVER 100 MILLION VIALS SOLD
Today, the community of patients receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic continues to grow, with approximately 100 million vials sold in the United States alone since 2002.
528 PEER-REVIEWED ARTICLES
The safety and effectiveness profile of BOTOX® Cosmetic has been proven in more than 16 years of published research and described in 528 articles in peer-reviewed scientific and medical journals. BOTOX® Cosmetic has become the most widely researched and studied treatment of its kind.
/11 Tips to Make the most our of your Treatment
1. ONLY SEEK TREATMENT FROM A PROFESSIONAL
BOTOX® treatment is a skill that requires training. Always make sure that you are working with a doctor, nurse, or a certified trained professional injector to prevent treatment mishaps like the frozen look or unbalanced results.
Your consultation is the perfect time to develop a commutative rapport with your doctor or injector. You should reveal any medications or supplements you take because some can interfere with treatment. Discuss your aesthetic goals and what you hope to achieve from treatment. Clear communication will help you get the best results.
3. FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS PRECISELY
4. DO NOT TOUCH
5. STAY HYDRATED
6. LIMIT SUN EXPOSURE
7. EAT WELL
8. STAND UP TALL
9. SUPPLEMENT WITH ZINC

/ WHAT IS BOTOX® AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
BOTOX® targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines — the repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, smiling and raising the eyebrows over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of the frown lines between your brows, your crow’s feet lines and your forehead lines.
/ WHAT AREAS DOES BOTOX® TREAT?
/ BOTOX® has also been approved for treatment of:
Also known as Focal Hyperhidrosis
Various Muscular Conditions
Eye Spasms and Twitching

IS IT PAINFUL?
HOW MUCH RESEARCH HAS GONE INTO BOTOX®?
IS BOTOX® ONLY FOR WOMEN?
The number of men choosing treatments like BOTOX® has risen fast – in the past three years alone, men have received over one million botulinum toxin treatments. When surveyed, the majority of men say they want to look good and they’re bothered by the changes they see in the mirror. 80% would choose to treat their crow’s feet first, while 74% would prioritize their forehead lines, and 60% would most like to treat their frown lines.
DO I NEED TO BE OVER THE AGE OF 40 TO START USING BOTOX®?
The truth is, everyone’s lines form differently. The timing can be influenced by a combination of factors, from cellular changes that may occur over time, to reduction of collagen, to genetic factors, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.
Whenever your lines start to bother you, go speak with your doctor. They can help you determine if treatment is right for you.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE TREATMENT? ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
More serious side effects can happen but are extremely rare. These reactions can include severe allergic reactions, skin rashes, dizziness or trouble breathing. We will provide you with all the information regarding this prior to your treatment.
The best results will typically appear a few days or so following your treatment. Over time, the results become less noticeable as your body gradually removes the neuro-toxin from the muscle tissues over time returning complete movement to the treated muscles.
