One 10-minute treatment and within days there's a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. Just a few tiny injections will give you beautiful results which can last up to 4 months. Results may vary.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those frown lines between the brows to form over time.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people from 18 to 65 years of age. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
In 2005, almost 3.3 million procedures were performed with FDA-approved BOTOX® Cosmetic.

Before the procedure.
You'll be seated comfortably in an examination room, much like you find in a dentist's office. No anesthesia is required, although your doctor may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream as deemed necesary.
Our experienced injector, Deb-ee, will determine where to administer the injections by examining your ability to move certain muscles in your brow area. The entire BOTOX® Cosmetic injection procedure takes approximately 10 minutes.
After the procedure.
There's no recovery time needed. Just one visit to our convenient Vancouver, Washington location and you're ready to get on with your day! The most common side effects following botox injections include temporary eyelid droop and nausea. Localized pain, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, may be associated with the injection.
Within days, you may notice an improvement in the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows that can last up to 4 months. Many patients find that their facial muscles "retrain" themselves after continuous treatment. With consistent use, you may find that your treatment lasts for up to 6 months! Results may vary.
The BOTOX® Injection Process
- Several tiny injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic directly into the muscles that cause those moderate to severe frown lines between the brows.
- Your licensed injector will determine where to administer the injections by examining your ability to move certain muscles in your brow area. The location, size, and use of the muscles that create a furrowed brow vary markedly among individuals.
- No anesthesia is required, although your doctor may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to injecting. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief.
- You can expect to be in and out of Dr. Workman's office without downtime. You may see a marked improvement in the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows within days. Improvement may continue for as long as a month, and could last up to 4 months.
