Botox injections are a quick and easy non-surgical procedure to treat fine lines and wrinkles. Botulinum Toxin is a neurotoxin injected directly into the facial muscles leaving the patient with a smoother more refreshed appearance.
Facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Jim Parry offers Botox injections for patients in Cleveland at The J. Parry Clinic for Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics.
What to expect from your Botox injections
Relatively painless, this procedure uses the tiniest needle possible for injections. Cosmetic injections require very little procedure time and patients can return to normal activities soon after.
Botox Treatment Options
Botox by Allergan has a variety of medical and aesthetic uses. Botox is FDA-approved to treat chronic migraines and headaches, and is often used to treat excessive sweating, known as hyperhidrosis, in areas like the underarms.
At the J. Parry Clinic for Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics we use Botox for aesthetic purposes. Botox can be used in various areas of the face, like the forehead, brow, cheeks, chin, jaw, neck, and around the eyes, nose, mouth, and lips. Botox is commonly used to treat aesthetic issues like:
- Deep wrinkles in the forehead
- Forehead lines and Furrows
- Frown Lines
- Crow’s Feet
- Mid brows (11’s)
- Smile Lines
- Frown lines
- Bunny lines
- Chin wrinkles
- Sagging mouth corners
- Neck banding
Your Botox will be administered at Dr. Jim Parry’s clinic in Mayfield Heights, OH located just outside of Cleveland.
How long does the effects of Botox last?
The effects of Botox injections are estimated to last three to four months, however, this varies with each patient.
Will I see the results immediately post injections?
No, you will begin to see the results of your Botox injections within a few days of your treatment, however, it can take up to two weeks to see complete results. Occasionally, patients will require touch-up injections approximately two weeks after injections to ensure you are getting the best results.
What Is the Recovery Process Like?
Botox injections do not require a recovery period. Most patients are able ot return to their normal activities immediately following their injections.
How Much Do Botox Injections Cost?
Botox injections vary in price based on the amount of botox needed to properly address the aesthetic issues the patient is seeking treatment for.
Is Botox a good alternative to surgery?
Because the effects of Botox are not permanent, it is not considered an alternative to surgical procedures such as a facelift or blepharoplasty. However, Botox injections can prolong the need for surgery. As a double board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Parry will develop the best cosmetic plan to meet your aesthetic goals.
