Ideal Weight Loss and Cosmetic Center is proud to offer BOTOX® Cosmetic for our Columbus area patients. BOTOX is one of the most widely recognized cosmetic injectables and can be a great treatment option for women and men with heavy frown lines or wrinkles of the upper face.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein that can temporarily reduce moderate to severe frown lines between the brows.
Dr. Gina Nichols has treated numerous patients with Botox Cosmetic to improve their facial appearance.
More and more Botox is being used in conjunction with fillers (such as Juvederm) in order to enhance the effectiveness of both and prolong their effects.
Botox works by blocking nerve impulses, which reduces the movement of those particular muscles. With less movement, the skin surface gradually smooths itself out and any lines begin to fade.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a short and nominally invasive treatment that requires no downtime. During treatment, very low doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic are administered by a series of small injections directly into the muscles that cause the frown lines between the brows and above the brows as well as the crow’s feet around the eyes. Botox can also be used to reduce lines on the eyelids, bunny lines on the nose and the downward pull of the corners of the mouth.
Discomfort, if any, is usually slight and short-lived with an initial redness that may occur near the injection sites. However, our clients return to their normal activities immediately following the treatment.Although individual results may vary, you can expect to see results just days after the treatment and the appearance of the area may continue to improve for up to one week.
How the Botox works and what is it?
Botox is a drug produced by the neurotoxin of the bacterium known as Clostridium Botulinum also known as Botulinum toxin.
It is medically used to cosmetically remove wrinkles and to treat certain muscular conditions by temporarily paralyzing muscles.
Botox is widely used to remove facial lines, frown lines, and forehead lines. "Gina M. Nichols, M.D. Family Medicine & Ideal Weight Loss Clinic" offers Botox Treatment.
Along with Botox treatment we also offer:

It will be applied to frown lines, forehead, crow’s feet and lines around the neck. It can also be used to treat muscle spasm, migraines, and excessive sweating. Botox injections can give you a younger and smoother looking skin.

Botox can give patients a youthful and beautiful face. Botox injections remove wrinkles that have yet to become permanent. Botox relaxes the muscles that produce those wrinkles.
