Frequently Asked Questions | Botox® in Cleveland, Ohio

What is Botox®?

Botox® is a popular cosmetic anti-wrinkle treatment and the most requested treatment at our office in Cleveland, Ohio. In the United Stated, Botox® is used cosmetically on over six million people a year.

Where does the name “Botox” come from?

Botox® is actually the brand name for botulinum toxin type A, a neurotoxin. A Botox® injection temporarily relaxes the muscles of the face that cause wrinkles, leaving the skin smooth and refreshed looking. Botox® can also be used to treat other areas of the face, such as the eyes (crow’s feet), lines of the forehead, as well as corners of the mouth.

Wrinkles caused by the damaging UV rays of the sun cannot be treated with Botox®. Though, the appearance of these wrinkles can be significantly improved with Botox®.

How do I know if Botox® will work for me?

Many factors are important when considering treatment with Botox® Cosmetic. For instance, your skin’s age, type, thickness and the severity of wrinkling all factor into determining whether these treatments will be effective.

Can Botox® be used to treat anything other than wrinkles?

Botox® is not just used to treat cosmetic issues. In fact, Botox® has been used to treat muscle spasms, migraine headaches and even perspiration problems. As a facial plastic surgery specialist, Dr. Harmych does not offer Botox for indications other than cosmetic.

How is Botox® injection performed?

Botox® injection is usually performed without the use of anesthesia or local anesthetic in a physician’s office. Patients report minimal pain or discomfort from Botox® injection. An injection lasts usually only 10 minutes and patients may return to occupational and social activities immediately. Exercise may be resumed after 24 hours.

Results are usually seen within 5-7 days and last around 3-4 months. Maximum effect is usually seen after 2 weeks.
