Botox - Toledo, OH

Renew your youthful appearance...

Putting your best face forward may not always require surgery. These days, in order to regain a youthful appearance, diminishing lines and wrinkles can be accomplished through a quick and convenient office visit. Botox is the leading solution to correct common aging signs and regain a more youthful appearance.

Botox is an injectable cosmetic treatment chosen to smooth and flatten lines that have appeared over time. The Botox solution relaxes the muscles to the point that actually creating furrows is nearly impossible. Treatment can take less than 10 minutes and the injection is given with a small needle that usually cannot even be felt.

Botox Cosmetic is administered by Dr. Zavell to patients in Toledo, Maumee, Perrysburg, Bowling Green, Findlay, Sylvania, and the surrounding areas. Botox is a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles at the area being treated. BOTOX® works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. Short of a surgical facelift, BOTOX® is the most popular way to reduce facial wrinkles. BOTOX can be used as a wrinkle treatment to smooth frown lines, crows feet, forehead furrows, and skin bands on the neck to name a few.

Choosing the best plan of care for your ultimate outcome is important. Dr. Zavell, along with his team, will partner with you in order to achieve your desired goals. There are many different non-surgical rejuvenation's to consider when deciding on your cosmetic needs and education, along with Dr. Zavell’s guidance, can ensure you are confident with your choices.

Top Questions on Botox®

What is Botox®?

Botox® is the brand name for botulinum toxin type A, a cosmetic injectable that helps to improve the look of facial wrinkles, especially in the forehead and in crow’s feet.

How does Botox® work?

Facial wrinkles may occur as a result of facial muscles pulling on the skin, creating a facial expression such as a frown. Over a person’s lifetime, the wrinkles start to become more noticeable. Botox® interrupts the nerve signal to the facial muscle. Without this chemical signal, the muscle wont contract, and the wrinkle is diminished or prevented. This results in an improvement in the appearance of the wrinkles and fine lines.

Is Botox® safe?

Botox® injections are associated with minimal side effects and considered to be very safe, especially when performed by an experienced physician. Side effects may include bruising, swelling, headache, and eyebrow asymmetry.

How long will my Botox® last?

When injected by an experience physician you should expect your Botox to last 3-4 months. Botox® effects are not seen on the day of injection, but may begin to appear as early as 2 days and should be fully apparent by 2 weeks. Sometimes a small additional dose is needed after the 2 weeks to further customize the injection to your specific needs.

How much does Botox® cost?

Botox® is measured in terms of units. The number of units that you receive will determine your cost for the injection. In my practice, I customize the dose to your specific needs after a facial examination. Therefore, treating one person with vertical frown lines may be $260 while another patient needs a large does at $325.
Botox® also has a patient loyalty program call Brilliant Distinctions which you give you further cost savings. In addition, Dr. Zavell provides his Botox patients with a VIP program which rewards the patient for continually receiving Botox® treatments.
