About BOTOX Cosmetic
BOTOX Cosmetic and offers individuals with dynamic wrinkles smoother skin and a natural well-rested appearance. As the years go by, facial muscles beneath the skin contract with every facial expression and eventually form "dynamic" wrinkles such as:
- Frown Lines Between the Brows
- Horizontal Brow Furrows
- Crow's Feet
- Bunny Lines in the Nasal Area
These “dynamic” wrinkles deepen with age and often create a terse, stressed appearance. BOTOX Cosmetic injections relax select muscles in the face and limit their ability to contract.

BOTOX Injection Treatment
BOTOX treatments are very simple to perform and usually take less than five minutes per facial area. Using a tiny micro-needle, a minuscule amount of an FDA-approved serum containing botulinum toxin type A, is injected very precisely into select facial muscles.
Because the needle used for the BOTOX Cosmetic injection is very thin, no sedation or local anesthetic is necessary. Comfort is enhanced by applying a topical anesthetic or an ice pack a few minutes before the BOTOX injection.
In Pittsburgh, BOTOX injections are performed by one of our expert injectors or medical estheticians. In Columbus, BOTOX injections are administered by board-certified plastic surgeon, Fernando Colon, MD or a registered nurse or nurse practitioner. All of our BOTOX providers are considered expert injectors, trained in the most advanced injection techniques to achieve the most natural looking results.
Within one or two weeks of the BOTOX injection, the treated facial muscles become temporarily relaxed, causing the overlying skin to lay flat and unwrinkled. The untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression to be unaffected.
Although results vary, most individuals can expect significant wrinkle reduction for about four months following a BOTOX Cosmetic injection. To maintain the desired wrinkle reduction effects, BOTOX injection treatments can and should be repeated about every four or five months. The result tends to be longer lasting with subsequent treatments.

FAQ's: BOTOX Cosmetic Injection
Yes! Botox Cosmetic is FDA-approved to treat the fine lines surrounding the eyes – more commonly called crow’s feet and the frown lines or glabella lines between the brows, commonly called the 11’s. Botox is used to relax muscles for cosmetic purposes but it also has many medical applications and is used to treat a number of conditions including chronic migraines, excessive sweating and muscle spasticity, to mention a few.
What can be expected after a BOTOX injection?
Normal daily activities can be resumed immediately after BOTOX injections as long as an upright position is maintained. However, you should not workout for 4 to 5 hours after your treatment. External pressure should not be applied to the area treated with BOTOX Cosmetic for about four or five hours as well.
Are there any side effects to having BOTOX Injections?
Following BOTOX injections, some patients may experience mild bruising at the BOTOX Cosmetic injection site, or a mild headache. These conditions are temporary and gradually subside within a day or two.
In rare cases, when people do not keep their head upright, the BOTOX Cosmetic can migrate and weaken nearby muscles. This may cause the eyebrow or upper eyelid to droop. This condition is temporary and corrects itself without treatment within several weeks.
What is the cost of BOTOX?
The cost of BOTOX is determined by the number of facial areas being treated and the amount of BOTOX needed to achieve the desired wrinkle-relaxing result. During your BOTOX consultation, your provider will discuss your facial rejuvenation goals to best determine the area of treatment and associated cost.

BOTOX Cosmetic Alternative Treatments
Dysport® Wrinkle Treatment is an FDA-approved wrinkle relaxer, offering a non-surgical option for the correction of expression-related wrinkles, or dynamic wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes.
Xeomin® Wrinkle Relaxer is FDA-approved for temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, also called the glabellar lines.
Dermal Fillers may be used instead or along with BOTOX Cosmetic to fill these wrinkles but complete removal is unlikely.
BOTOX Cosmetic injection treatments, however, cannot improve age-related wrinkles, sun-damaged skin or sagging skin.
