What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinB) is the most recognized minimally invasive aesthetic treatment in the world. Approved for use in 98 countries, BOTOX® has become the #1 selling treatment of its kind. The difference for many is subtle yet impactful. BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only FDA approved treatment for moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead lines and crow’s feet lines in adults.

Ask for BOTOX® by name
Only BOTOX® Cosmetic has been evaluated and approved by the FDA to help make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines look better in adults. Be wary of discount products or “cheap” BOTOX® Cosmetic. Make sure you receive authentic BOTOX® Cosmetic – by taking a few simple steps.
- Ask to see the vial of BOTOX® Cosmetic that the specialist will use during your treatment. The vial will have the BOTOX® Cosmetic logo and also have a holographic image that says Allergan. If the vial has another logo or marking, then it is not BOTOX® Cosmetic.
- See a reputable medical provider like ForeverYoung MedSpa who purchases BOTOX® Cosmetic directly from Allergan. To locate a medical provider who purchases BOTOX® Cosmetic from Allergan, use the Find a Specialist tool on the Botox website.
How does BOTOX® work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning, laughing, concentrating and squinting over the years. Your Botox specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows. Botox® (onabotulinumtoxinB) works by blocking nerve signals that lead to muscle contraction and cause wrinkles. Only a tiny amount of botulinum toxin is needed to inject a wide range of facial deficiencies that reduce signs of aging. Effects of Botox® are usually seen within 3 days and results last an average of 3-4 months. ForeverYoung MedSpa provides free consultations and individualizes every Botox® treatment.
Benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment
Botox® Cosmetic injection is a non-surgical procedure that relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles in your brow, forehead, smile lines and crow’s feet around the eyes. After treatment you will look more relaxed and confident because the wrinkles in these areas become smoother, often raising the brow and opening the eyes wider. Botox® Cosmetic injection can also be used as a preventative measure to untimely wrinkles.
Before & After Photos
Is there another way to get the same effect?
Yes. Wrinkles of the forehead and eyes can be non-surgically smoothed out by injectable fillers like Juvéderm, laser resurfacing, tissue tightening, and topical therapy. Surgical choices include brow lift with resection of brow muscles and blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery).
Can this be combined with other treatments?
Yes. Botox® may be combined with many other cosmetic treatments in our spa. Our clients choose combination treatments to achieve the best possible aesthetic result.
What is the cost of Botox® Cosmetic?
The cost for Botox® treatments depends on the amount of product needed and this varies among patients. We charge on the basis of units (this is the true way of measuring it, not by the volume of fluid used because different practitioners dilute their Botox® differently) used during treatment. Our introductory Botox® price for our new clients is only $10/unit. Men usually need more units of Botox® than women because their muscles are larger.

Your Injectable Experience
Your skin will be carefully cleansed, and then an ice pack (if needed) is provided to ensure that the area is numb and clean where the injection will be administered.
We carefully and thoughtfully inject small amounts of Botox® (botulinum toxin) into your muscles or skin, which takes roughly 10 – 15 minutes. The number of injections that are required really depends on factors like specific area of treatment and amount of Botox® used. Men usually need more units of Botox® than women because their muscles are larger.
Majority of patients find the injection treatment pain free. Dr. Khan and his highly qualified Registered Nurses perform each injection procedure. The prices of injections vary. Please do not hesitate to call the Spa for all the details and questions.
Some patients experience minor side effects and bruising, but in general injectable treatments require very little recovery time. In most cases, routine activities can be resumed immediately after the procedure.
The FDA approved injectable neurotoxins are the most suitable choice for your age-related wrinkles or active lines.
