BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections
Your skin is affected by sun exposure, loss of elasticity due to age, gravity, and environmental toxins. As you age, you may decide that it’s time to undergo some anti-aging treatments so that you can feel your best. And feeling your best is what matters most to our team at Anodyne of Westerville. That’s why we now offer BOTOX® Cosmetic.
Cosmetic intervention with BOTOX® can be an excellent way to restore a more youthful appearance. BOTOX® treatments are quick, safe, and the results are phenomenal.
BOTOX® is the first and only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily improve moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines.
Areas Treated by BOTOX®
The following areas can be smoothed with Botox® injections from Anodyne of Westerville:
How BOTOX® Works
Fine lines and wrinkles can be caused by a few different things – regular cellular changes from aging and collagen loss, damage caused from the sun or other environmental factors, or repeated muscle contractions. Think about how often you frown, sprint, or raise your eyebrows. Each of those movements is a muscle contraction that cause your skin to furrow and fold eventually leading to creases, fine lines, and wrinkles.
BOTOX® works beneath the surface of skin to reduce the underlying muscles. This causes a reduction in those areas that are commonly treated with BOTOX® – frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines.
Frequently Asked Questions about BOTOX®
BOTOX® is a purified form of botulinum toxin, which is an advanced neuromodulator. What that means is it stimulates your nerves to cause a specific response – in this case, relaxing your nerve endings and muscles. The calming effect of the injections creates a smoother, more refreshed look. Whether it’s your first time receiving BOTOX® injections or you have had injections in the past, we can help you look younger quickly and in the most natural way.
Your cost of BOTOX® Cosmetic not only includes the price of the product, but more importantly, the skill and expertise of the specialist or healthcare professional who is administering your treatment.
The best candidates for BOTOX® treatment are those that are physically healthy with no history of nerve or muscle diseases. You should not be currently pregnant or nursing. Some other health conditions could mean you are not a candidate, but our team at Anodyne of Westerville will ensure BOTOX® injections are safe for you before any treatment.
BOTOX is injected with a very small needle, called a micro-needle. This needle is placed directly into the muscles creating the lines and creases you want reduced.
There is very little, if any, pain associated with BOTOX® injections due to the small size of the needle. You may feel a slight pinching, stinging, or burning sensation that passes quickly. The entire treatment is performed in-office and is completed within minutes.
If you are planning a first BOTOX® treatment, you may not know that the results take a few days to appear. You may notice a visible smoothing of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines within 24 to 48 hours, with full results in 30 days lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines.
The full effects of your BOTOX® treatment may not be visible for up to two weeks following the injections. We recommend that you plan well in advance if you are receiving BOTOX® for a special occasion such as a wedding or other engagement where you want to look your best.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You can trust BOTOX® to deliver subtle results when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy, like our experts at Anodyne of Westerville. So, you’ll look like yourself—only with less noticeable lines. No one should be able to tell you’ve had anything done.
BOTOX® is the “gold standard” in neuromodulators, the first cosmetic injectable of its type to be approved for three facial areas: Forehead, crow’s feet, and lines between your brows. Millions of injections are performed every year, and BOTOX® has an excellent safety record.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is backed by more than 16 years of published studies. It uses a unique manufacturing process, and its potency is measured in units that cannot be compared to any other product. This is why there is no such thing as “generic” BOTOX® Cosmetic.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is not a permanent treatment. The effects of BOTOX will typically last from three to six months. Your muscles will eventually return to their former condition, and the treated wrinkles will again become visible. If you discontinue treatment the moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines will gradually return.
Many find that when the lines and wrinkles return, they are less severe than they were before injections with BOTOX®. This is because BOTOX® injections cause the muscles to shrink and fine lines, and wrinkles become less prominent over time.
Although there may be minor bruising or small red marks at the injection sites after your BOTOX® treatment, they will resolve quickly. Makeup can be applied several hours after treatment, if desired.
We suggest that you avoid exercise or any activity that causes heavy sweating for 24 hours after your injections, and do not scratch or massage the injection sites.
