BOTOX® Cosmetic

Patients at our Toledo practice choose BOTOX and other anti‐wrinkle injectable treatments such as Dysport® and XEOMIN® to soften forehead wrinkles and reduce worry lines. When injected by an experienced, skilled provider, BOTOX treatments can create a relaxed, rejuvenated appearance.

How Does BOTOX Work?

BOTOX, Dysport, and XEOMIN all work by temporarily relaxing the tiny facial muscles that move whenever you squint, frown, or appear surprised. When these muscles contract, the skin furrows, creating what are called dynamic wrinkles, which include:

  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Vertical lines between the eyebrows
  • Chin wrinkles
  • Lip lines
  • Neck bands

The active ingredient in these treatments prevents the nerves from sending signals to these muscles allowing the wrinkles to smooth away. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, smooth and fill lines and folds that develop from our skin losing volume as we age.

Your BOTOX Procedure

BOTOX treatments typically take about 15 minutes. Dr. Colville or Leslie Ehle, RN, a certified aesthetic nurse specialist who is a trained injector, injects BOTOX with precision into the targeted muscle or muscles. Most of our patients experience very little discomfort during the injections, but we can apply a topical anesthetic to numb the skin, if desired. We take a conservative approach to treatments and inject a tiny amount of BOTOX using a short, thin needle.

You can resume your normal activities or return to work immediately after getting BOTOX injections. Some swelling or redness may occur. It’s important not to rub the treatment area in the first few hours following the procedure because that could cause the product to move into a different area.

Does BOTOX Work Immediately?

It usually takes about 4 to 7 days to see the complete results from BOTOX, even though some patients may notice a difference in the first couple of days. Our recommendation is that you schedule a follow-up appointment at 4 months to maintain your results.

Combining BOTOX With Other Treatments

BOTOX can enhance the results of other nonsurgical procedures, such as:

  • Chemical peels
  • ThermiSmooth®
  • Ultherapy®
  • Dermal fillers

Dr. Colville will customize the aesthetic treatment plan that will help you determine the best order to receive treatments based on priority and budget. Patients concerned about the appearance of a double chin can also get KYBELLA® injections to reduce fat below the chin.
