A simple injection treatment at our office in the Columbus area might be all that you need to finally erase facial wrinkles. BOTOX® is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world, and this injectable has helped millions of people rebuild their confidence. Within just days of your appointment, you are going to look much younger and more refreshed.

The History of BOTOX®

BOTOX® is a purified protein solution that is delivered via skillful injection. For many years, this product was used to treat a variety of medical conditions including involuntary muscle contractions. While the product is effective at preventing muscle twitches, doctors also noticed a secondary benefit. Fine lines and wrinkles near the injection sites tended to fade away within just days of these treatments. After quite a bit of research, the FDA approved the use of this product to treat age-related blemishes in certain areas.

After being injected, BOTOX® begins to block the nerve impulses that force the nearby muscles to contract. Some wrinkles are caused by sunken cheeks and loose skin, but others are the result of permanently contracted muscles. Injecting BOTOX® into those muscles allows them to slowly relax. Unlike many other injectables that only add volume to the face, BOTOX® treats the root causes of fine lines and wrinkles.

Your First Treatment Session

BOTOX® treatments in Columbus start with a consultation at our office. During this meeting, we can evaluate your facial features and determine if the treatment is right for you. From there, we can plan out a customized treatment for you. During the actual treatment session, the solution is skillfully injected into the preselected areas. No downtime is involved, so patients can return to virtually all of their daily activities immediately after the treatment.

You should begin to notice changes to your skin within days of the treatment session. The results of BOTOX® typically last for three to six months with the proper aftercare. You can simply schedule additional maintenance appointments at our office to maintain the results. Some patients also combine BOTOX® with other cosmetic treatments to improve the overall results.
