Look and feel younger with Botox injections at the Center for Surgical Dermatology.
What is Botox?
At the Center for Surgical Dermatology, our providers offer Botox to patients looking to improve their signs of aging. Botox is a popular cosmetic treatment that involves injecting a specific solution into the skin to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
Botox injections utilize a unique toxin called onabotulinumtoxinA, a neurotoxin produced by an organism known as the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, which blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles, temporarily forcing muscles to relax and soften.
This provides two valuable benefits: it smooths out the skin to improve the visibility of existing wrinkles and prevents the formation of new wrinkles because the skin does not crease as much.
If you are interested in taking advantage of these benefits, give us a call at (614) 847-4100 and schedule a Botox treatment at our dermatology clinic in Westerville, Ohio.

The toxin that Botox uses—onabotulinumtoxinA—is known as a neuromodulator, which blocks signals between nerves and muscles, temporarily weakening muscle contractions and forcing them to relax. The result is smoother, softer, younger-looking skin.
Botox injections are made with a toxin called onabotulinumtoxinA, also referred to as Botulinum toxin. Along with several other ingredients, Botox injections contain small, diluted, purified amounts of this toxin to deliver its notable anti-aging results.
While neurotoxins can be extremely dangerous in large quantities, Botox injections are safe and have been used for decades by doctors to treat a wide range of health problems, including facial wrinkles. The Botox solution only uses a tiny amount of neurotoxins to achieve the desired effect for treatment.
Additionally, when determining who to choose for your Botox injections, it is important to pick a highly-trained and experienced professional who deeply understands cosmetic injections and facial anatomy to deliver outstanding results, such as the licensed providers at the Center for Surgical Dermatology.
