Look and Feel Younger with Botox at Westerville Dermatology
What is Botox?
Botox is a popular injectable treatment that addresses fine lines and wrinkles to deliver a more youthful complexion. During a Botox treatment, your provider injects a neuromodulator solution into your skin that temporarily stops muscle movement and activity. This forces the facial muscles to relax, resulting in smoother, younger-looking skin.
At Westerville Dermatology, the most common places our patients have Botox injected include the forehead, between the eyebrows, around the eyes, and around the month. However, Botox can also be used to treat migraine headaches, TMJ (temporomandibular joints) disorder, and excessive sweating.

Botox uses a specific type of neurotoxin called botulinum toxin A. When injected into muscles, botulinum toxin A blocks nerve signals that trigger muscle contractions, which forces the muscle to relax and reduces the depth and visibility of fine lines and wrinkles.
Botox is very safe and has been used for decades in cosmetic dermatology. While it may sound scary to inject a toxin into your skin, this type of anti-aging treatment only uses a miniscule amount of botulinum toxin A to achieve the desired effects.
Furthermore, the board-certified providers at Westerville Dermatology are highly trained and experienced in administering Botox injections for beautiful, natural-looking results. When you choose our providers for your Botox treatment, you can trust that you are in good hands.
This depends on how quickly your body metabolizes the Botox solution. Generally, our providers find that Botox results last between three and four months. For beautiful, long-lasting results, we recommend regular follow-up treatments.
Possible side effects of Botox include slight bruising, swelling, and bleeding at the injection site. Additionally, Botox may migrate out of place, which can cause drooping of a brow or eyelid. However, this is very uncommon and likely only to occur when receiving Botox from an unskilled individual.
