Treatment Information

Botox Treatments in Pittsburgh 

Botox is performed in our medical spas located in Mt. Lebanon, Wexford and Shadyside and in our Express Centers located in Pittsburgh.  Botox is always administered by our expert injectors who are trained in the most advanced injection techniques for Botox.  Pittsburgh clients will see a registered nurse or physician’s assistant for their injections of Botox.  

Columbus Botox Treatments

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.

Botox Injections 

Botox injections 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 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 treatment.

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 the Botox injections.  To maintain the desired wrinkle reduction effects, Botox injections can and should be repeated about every four or five months.  The result tends to be longer- lasting with subsequent treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ

Is Botox FDA-approved for cosmetic treatment?
Yes! Botox 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 for about four or five hours as well.
Are there any Botox side effects?
Following a Botox treatment, some patients may experience mild bruising at the 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, Botox may 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 consultation, your provider will discuss your facial rejuvenation goals to best determine the area of treatment and associated cost.
