Tired of looking in the mirror and seeing long lines across your forehead and around your eyelids?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a safe and effective way to soften the fine lines and wrinkles on your face and neck that add years to your appearance.
Dr. John Zavell can provide BOTOX injections at his Toledo, OH, office, giving you a more youthful appearance in just one visit.
What is BOTOX? And How Does it Work?
BOTOX is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. BOTOX works by injecting botulinum toxin through a fine needle into targeted areas of the face and neck. The botulinum toxin blocks nerve impulses to the targeted muscles, preventing them from contracting. With those facial muscles relaxed, the wrinkles begin to fade. For the right patients, it is a safe and effective alternative to facial plastic surgery.
Is BOTOX Cosmetic Right for Me?
Crows' feet are the small lines radiating from the corners of your eyes and eyelids. BOTOX Cosmetic can soften those lines and rejuvenate your eyes.
These can refer to either the deep lines between your eyebrows, commonly called the "11's", or the long creases across your forehead. With a carefully placed injection, BOTOX Cosmetic effectively relaxes the muscles we use to frown, softening these signs of aging
Mouth and Lip Lines
Fine lines around our mouth can significantly age us. BOTOX Cosmetic can smooth away those lines, giving your smile a more youthful appearance.
Types of Botulinum Toxin Injectables BOTOX, Dysport®, and Xeomin®
There are three main brands of botulinum toxin injectables: BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin. All three brands use the same form of botulinum toxin, so the method is the same. While Dysport and Xeomin are considered safe for cosmetic use, our Toledo, OH, office uses BOTOX because it is considered the most established and trusted brand.

Avoid the Risks Follow Dr. Zavell's Instructions
It is important to follow your doctor's aftercare instructions to keep the botulinum toxin from migrating out of the treatment area. If the botulinum toxin moves out of the injection site, it can alter your treatment plan, cause muscle weakness and paralysis outside of the affected area, and depending on how far it travels, cause severe physical health issues.
Do Not Touch the Treatment Area
Avoid touching, massaging, or poking your injection sites for at least 24 hours after your treatment.
Do Not Lay Down
Avoid laying down within the first four hours after your treatment. Sitting straight up or standing is an effective way to make sure the botulinum toxin does not migrate out of the injection site and settles into the correct treatment location.
Do Not Perform Strenuous Activity
Avoid any strenuous activity, like exercise, for at least 24 hours after treatment. This type of activity increases blood flow, which increases the likelihood of swelling and bruising.
Do Not Drink Alcohol
Avoid drinking alcohol for at least 24 hours before and after treatment. Alcohol is a blood thinner, so consuming it right before or after your BOTOX treatment increases your risk of swelling and bruising.
BOTOX injections are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed each year. The injections are associated with minimal side effects and are considered to be very safe, especially when performed by a qualified and experienced physician. However, every cosmetic treatment has a potential for side effects. The most common side effects of BOTOX injections are pain, bruising, and swelling at the injection sites. Some patients also experience temporary drooping of the eyelids, flu-like symptoms, and headache.
When to Call Your Doctor:
- Blurred vision
- Muscle weakness or paralysis outside the treatment area
- Trouble speaking or swallowing
- Difficulty breathing
- Loss of bladder control
