Rejuvenate Your Appearance with Botox Injections in Granville and Lancaster
What is Botox?
You’ve heard of Botox. This FDA-approved procedure is used throughout the world to help people achieve and maintain a youthful appearance. Botox treats fine lines and wrinkles, including laugh lines, smile lines, frown lines, worry lines, and more: all the wrinkles that appear around our eyes, mouths, and on our foreheads.
As we age, moderate to severe lines develop on the face. These lines are caused by muscles beneath the skin. Botox gently relaxes these muscles, which reduces the wrinkles and lines. Botox has become a well-known treatment for these wrinkles for a reason: it’s safe, time-tested, and widely used in 95 countries.
The Barrett & Geiss offices are conveniently located in Lancaster and Granville, Ohio. Schedule your Botox consultation today and begin taking your journey toward a more youthful appearance.
While you know what Botox does, you may not know all the details about the procedure. Our team at Barrett & Geiss has compiled a list of the most commonly asked questions about the procedure.
In short, Botox relaxes muscles. When you wrinkle your forehead, smile, or frown you contract muscles under the skin. Over time, these muscles “learn” to contract, which creates creases and lines. BOTOX injections help the muscles relax which reduces wrinkles.
Our board-certified dermatologists and advanced practice providers in Lancaster and Granville, Ohio, will work with you to fully understand your goals and what you need Botox to do. We’ll develop a schedule of treatment that suits your needs, schedule an appointment, and you can begin seeing the dramatic results of Botox.
Once we’ve fully discussed Botox and have developed a treatment plan that works for you, the procedure can begin right away. There’s no prep time involved with Botox.
A lot of people thinking about getting Botox wonder if it will hurt. Most people who receive the treatment report that the injections feel like a light pinch. The effects are so mild you might not even know when the procedure has begun. Be sure to discuss any fears with your dermatology care team. If necessary we can use a topical anesthetic to reduce any potential pain.
Botox works quickly. You’ll begin to see results within one to two days of receiving the treatment.
Wrinkles don’t always adhere to an age limit. People develop lines and wrinkles for various reasons, and they don’t all depend on age. Genetics play a role, as does exposure to the sun. The earliest recommended age for Botox is 18, and many people begin Botox treatment in their 20s and 30s as a preventative measure.
None. Botox treatment is fast, and there’s no recommended downtime. Most people resume their normal activities the same day. There are, however, some things you should avoid after receiving Botox treatments: try not to sleep on your face the night after your procedure; also, avoid rubbing the area in which Botox was injected, and refrain from strenuous exercise or alcohol consumption for 24 hours after treatment.
Your dermatology care team will discuss your post-treatment plan with you and discuss what you can and can’t do after you’ve received Botox.
There are a number of rumors about Botox, and one is that it’s bad for you. Botox is carefully administered by our dermatology care team, and safety is our number one priority. Botox is a safe and effective treatment that’s used worldwide with fantastic results.
Botox remains effective for three to four months, and lasts longer as your muscles learn to relax on their own. Depending on your goals, we’ll put together a schedule of treatment designed to consistently help with your lines and wrinkles.
