BOTOX® Cosmetic or botulinum toxin is a non-surgical injection to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines in and around the frown lines, forehead, eyes, facial creases and bands in the neck. Some studies have shown BOTOX® Cosmetic to be an effective option to relieve migraine headache pain, reduce sweating and relieve muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.
Wrinkles are a natural part of life, but that doesn’t mean that you need to accept them. Botox injections are a great way to address facial wrinkles, and The Plastic Surgery Group wants to provide the Botox services you need in the greater Cincinnati, OH and Northern KY area.
What Is Botox?
Botox is common enough that most people have heard about it, but do you actually know what the process entails? As a quick overview, Botox is a series of small injections that includes a tiny dose of toxin. This toxin temporarily inhibits your muscles from moving, which in turn softens the wrinkles on your face giving you smooth flawless appearance. Botox can also help with problems like migraines and under arm perspiration.
What Are the Benefits?
Botox is a simple, quick procedure takes minutes to perform in our office. Once injected you can resume your normal daily activity with no down time and will see the full result in approximately seven days.
Another benefit is the longevity of Botox. While it’s not permanent, you can expect a single injection to last for three months, and maybe longer! Continual injections are needed to maintain the effect.
What Are the Risks?
Because our staff is trained and experienced, the risks you face from Botox are slight. However, pain, swelling, headaches, and eye dryness are all possible side effects of the treatment. The toxin has a very slight risk of spreading and causing muscle weakness, vision problems, or breathing problems, so talk to a doctor if you experience these issues.
Only a skilled plastic surgeon can determine the appropriate dosage and amount of Botox to be used. Careful consideration should be taken. Our plastic surgeons are board-certified and have years of experience in using Botox as a facial refinement option.
