BOTOX® Cosmetic

Nobody likes to look in the mirror and see wrinkles. Some of the areas we pay attention to the most, such as the forehead, the eyes, and the mouth, are among the first to show signs of age.

There are surgical and non-surgical treatment options to relieve lines and wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic continues to be one of the most popular non-surgical anti-aging options for the face and neck.

When choosing a doctor for BOTOX® Cosmetic, it is important to look for credentials, experience and a history of results. Board-certified cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Renuka Diwan has over 25 years of experience with premium injectables. Please call (440) 871-9832 today to schedule your initial consultation at The Laser & Skin Surgery in the Cleveland area.

How Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Work?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a wrinkle relaxer and neuromodulator. When injected beneath the skin, small quantities of neurotoxin interrupt the signals between nerves and muscles. These interruptions reduce localized muscle activity, diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the skin.

You may notice some improvement in your wrinkles in the first three to five days after BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment, but it will take a couple of weeks for the results to become fully evident. BOTOX® Cosmetic can soften lines and wrinkles for anywhere from three to nine months. You should expect little to no recovery time after treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic.  Botox injections cause only minor discomfort and slight bruising may occur at the injection site, but this is normally short-lived and easily covered with make-up.

What Areas Is BOTOX Used to Treat?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is an effective non-surgical treatment for a host of aesthetic issues affecting the face and neck. By limiting muscle movements, BOTOX® Cosmetic can alleviate:

Your expressions are governed by many different muscle groups, and it takes a skilled physician to understand these interactions and how they impact your appearance. Dr. Diwan will thoroughly examine your trouble areas to determine the suitability of BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment, as well as how many injections to perform.

Micro-Botox (tiny amounts of Botox injected in the skin) is also effective in reducing facial redness, enlarged pores and oiliness of the skin.

BOTOX® injections are an effective option for treating excess sweating, as well. Dr. Diwan can help you control excessive perspiration via BOTOX® treatment in areas such as:

Is BOTOX® Cosmetic Right for Me?

Most patients are good candidates for BOTOX® Cosmetic injections. One of the most important factors to consider is the type of wrinkles you want to treat.

Because it is a neuromodulator, BOTOX® Cosmetic is specially suited to treat many wrinkles that form as a result of muscle contractions on the upper part of the face and lips. Wrinkles created by other factors are not affected by Botox injections. 

BOTOX® Cosmetic is also not a solution for the loss of volume in the face. In the case of both volume loss and static wrinkles like sleep creases, facial fillers like Juvederm may be an effective alternative. A consultation with Dr Diwan is essential for an evaluation your facial wrinkles and specific recommendations for different areas of the face.

“I cannot be happier with my results and the fantastic office staff!! I had fillers and botox around my mouth done, no pain and awesome results! Heading back in for botox on my forehead and around my eyes. Just wonderful, I cannot say enough about how pleased I am!” -NK

Men and women alike are embracing BOTOX® Cosmetic as part of “routine maintenance” for a more youthful appearance. See sample results Dr. Diwan has achieved for male patients.
