Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic injectables. Over the past decades, it has become a household name associated with wrinkle suppression, capable of reducing the frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet without surgeries, incisions, or downtime.
What Is Botox?
Joli Beautique provides Botox in Doylestown, PA. When performed by a licensed and skilled injector, Botox is incredibly safe and effective, providing natural results that leave everyone guessing your secret.
Botox falls into a category of cosmetic injectables called “neuromodulators,” a group of injectables that suppress dynamic wrinkles caused by the overuse of facial muscles. The active ingredient in Botox is a neurotoxin protein called botulinum toxin type A. When injected underneath the facial tissues, Botox temporarily paralyzes the targeted facial muscles to reduce your facial wrinkles. Botox results generally last between 3 to 4 months.
What to Expect with the Treatment
Some patients receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic report the injections feel like a pinch. You may begin to notice a visible smoothing of frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines in adults. If you are looking for Botox in Bucks County, PA, come visit us at Joli Beautique.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is not a permanent treatment. If you discontinue treatment, the moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines will gradually return.

Will I see results quickly? How long do treatment effects last?
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to four months for moderate to severe frown lines. Remember that results vary from patient to patient, so your physician will plan your next appointment based on your results and aesthetic goals with Botox in Bucks County.
How much time does treatment take?
The actual injection process takes a quick 10 minutes. Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you. Then, some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch.
Will it hurt?
Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. Or, if you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist 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 leave your specialist’s office.
What are dynamic wrinkles?
Dynamic wrinkles are formed by the overuse of facial muscles. Repeated facial muscle contractions such as laughing and frowning make your skin furrow and fold. Botox blocks the transmission of signals from the nerve endings to the facial muscles, temporarily paralyzing the muscles responsible for your dynamic wrinkles. This smoothes out wrinkles, making you look younger.
How Many Injections Will I Receive?
Treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic is customized to your goals and needs. When you meet with your specialist, she will determine the appropriate treatment for any areas you wish to address, including moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines.
Remember, BOTOX® Cosmetic is only approved to treat all three of these areas:
- For the crow’s feet area, your specialist will inject 3 areas of the muscle that frames the side of the eye. This will be repeated on the muscle that frames the other eye.
- For the frown lines area, your specialist will administer 5 injections into the muscles between your brows and in your forehead.
- For the forehead lines area, your specialist will administer 5 injections into a muscle in your forehead.
