BOTOX Cosmetic Cincinnati
“A five minute non-surgical procedure with no down time and miraculous results” is how Dr. Martin describes Botox cosmetic. Used since the 1980’s for ophthalmologic conditions and approved by the FDA in 2002 for wrinkle reduction, Botox cosmetic (a purified form of botulinum toxin) is used to reduce or eliminate frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and perioral wrinkles. Using advanced injection techniques, Dr. Martin can also create a non surgical brow lift as well as elevate the corners of the mouth. Others uses include minimizing the platysmal neck bands, reduction of migraine headaches, and eliminating hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating).
Botox works by weakening the injected muscle allowing dynamic wrinkles to soften or disappear. Results typically last three to four months although individual results can vary. With continued use of Botox, patients may actually see longer lasting results. Botox injections can be repeated as often as necessary with no known adverse effects. A common myth is that discontinuation of Botox treatments will make the wrinkle look worse. This is simply not true. Complications are rare but can include redness at the injection site, bruising, or a droopy eyelid. A droopy eyelid can be treated successfully with eye drops prescribed by Dr. Martin.
Dr. Martin has been performing Botox treatments for nearly 8 years and has one of the busiest Botox practices in the Sharonville area. You may schedule your appointment and receive your Botox treatment the very same day. Following your Botox treatment, results may become evident in 24-48 hours but require 1-2 weeks for maximal improvement. No follow up appointment is necessary. Pricing is $12/unit.
