What is Botox®?
Botox® is an injectable treatment designed to reduce the appearance of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines. The Botox® formula is injected directly into the contracted muscles that cause the aforementioned wrinkles.
As a result of the repeated muscle contractions involved in facial movements and expressions, the muscles stiffen over time and find it harder to relax. This causes the overlying skin to bunch up, forming wrinkles.
A Botox® injection relaxes the contracted muscles, allowing them to lie flat. As a result, you will notice a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles while also preventing them from worsening.
For moderate to harsh wrinkles caused by sun damage and the aging process, you may require a dermal filler instead of Botox. We are confident that you’ll love your results, as our patients consider us to offer the best Botox® in Cincinnati, Ohio, Crestview Hills, Kentucky, and Northern Kentucky.

What is a Botox® Treatment Like?
A number of Botox® injections will be performed in the area(s) of your choice. This process takes only a few minutes, so the full Botox® treatment is completed in less than half an hour. In many cases, a local or topical anesthetic will be used beforehand to numb the treatment areas.
Is There Any Downtime After Botox®?
Botox® and many other injectables are popular cosmetic treatments because they require absolutely no downtime. Patients are able to return to work and other normal activities immediately after their appointment, making Botox® a great “lunchtime” procedure.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Botox®?
After your Botox® treatment, you will notice results within two days. During this time, you may experience mild redness or bruising in the treatment area from the injections. These effects will fade on their own within a few days, revealing the full results of treatment.
Botox® produces a reduction in frown lines and other forehead wrinkles that lasts up to four months. After this time, patients can easily receive further treatment to maintain their results.
