How Botox WorksIn just one appointment at The Fountain Clinic in Cleveland, Botox quickly and inexpensively rejuvenates your appearance without downtime.

If the lines in your face aren't quite matching up with your age or your attitude, you might be considering a cosmetic treatment to smooth them out. The "crow's feet" that develop around the eyes and "frown lines" between the eyebrows can make you appear older or more stressed out than you actually are. These inconvenient lines are no match for Botox, a popular cosmetic treatment offered by Dr. Curt Birchall at The Fountain Clinic, a med spa serving Botox in Cleveland, Ohio.

How Botox works

Botox is used as a cosmetic skin treatment aimed at reducing wrinkles and fine lines on the face, particularly those near the eyes and forehead. The Botox solution is administered by your Cleveland area dermatologists using a tiny needle containing purified botulinum toxin. This naturally-occurring protein works by halting muscle movement under the targeted areas of the face. Wrinkles happen because the facial muscles are constantly in motion when chewing, talking, even reading or blinking. When those movements are restricted, however, the wrinkles diminish over a few days time. The effects of Botox on the muscles usually last between three and four months, but results vary with each patient at The Fountain Clinic.

Great results

Botox is well-established as an aesthetic procedure, making it a safe, affordable, and minimally invasive procedure at your Cleveland area med spa. While surgery can be expensive with a long-term recovery, Botox is an excellent way to achieve similar results without the cost or downtime. Typical results are subtle and the final result leaves patients looking younger and refreshed instead of constricted or "pulled." Recently, a clinical study found that the vast majority of people who chose Botox were very pleased with their results; they all reported that their appearance had improved. This kind of satisfaction is what Dr. Birchall and the rest of the staff at The Fountain Clinic works toward each day. They want to bring positive change to all their Cleveland area patients' appearances and lives.
