BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first and only treatment FDA-approved to temporarily ride the face of moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet, and forehead lines. The results are a younger you with less noticeable facial lines. Botox is most commonly used to treat the vertical frown lines just above the nose, horizontal lines of the forehead, and crow’s feet.
Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause the skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines in adults – to help them look visibly smoother.
The solution is a quick 10-minute treatment with minimal downtime. You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines. A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT BOTOX
WILL MY FACE LOOK OVERDONE OR UNNATURAL?
BOTOX Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment delivering subtle results so you’ll look like yourself—only with less noticeable lines. No one should be able to tell you’ve had anything done.
WILL IT HURT?
The actual injection process takes a quick 10 minutes. Ignite Rx Medical will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas. You may feel a pinch but everyone is different. We sometimes may use ice to numb the treatment area. Or, if you are concerned about discomfort, we may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.
Treatment requires minimal downtime. So you can return to your daily routine immediately after you leaving the office.

DO I NEED TO BE OVER 40 TO START USING BOTOX®?
It’s not your age that determines when BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you, it’s the severity of your lines. In fact, 64% of plastic surgeons report seeing a rise in cosmetic surgery or injectable treatments for patients in their early 30’s.
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, we can help by determining the right treatment for you.
