Rejuvenate Your Appearance with Botox Injections in Granville and Lancaster
What is Botox?
Botox is an FDA-approved procedure that is used 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.
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. We’ll develop a schedule of treatments that suits your needs, 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.
Most people who receive Botox 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.
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.
Botox treatment is fast, and there’s no recommended downtime. Most people resume their normal activities the same day.
Your dermatology care team will discuss your post-treatment plan with you and what you can and can’t do after you’ve received Botox.
As with any cosmetic procedure, there are risks associated with Botox. However, you can mitigate these risks by going to an experienced, licensed professional.
At Barrett & Geiss, you can rest assured you are in safe hands when receiving botox from one of our board-certified dermatologists.
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.
