Just What Is BOTOX Cosmetic?                            

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a wildly popular solution to a wide variety of cosmetic issues. It enhances appearance through the injection of botulinum toxin, which stops facial muscles from contracting and causing wrinkles. 

Due to its widespread popularity, some people mistakenly believe BOTOX is a generic term for any botulinum toxin injection. This is not the case. BOTOX specifically refers to the industry-leading product we offer.

Botox Is Approved, Popular, & Proven


In 2002, BOTOX Cosmetic became the first treatment of its kind to receive FDA approval for addressing moderate to severe wrinkles in adults. To this day it is the only FDA-approved product that treats mild to severe crow's feet, frown lines, and forehead lines in adults. 


Since 2002, approximately 100 million vials of BOTOX have been sold in the United States alone. It is the world's top-selling treatment of its kind and is sold in 98 different countries around the globe.


The overwhelming popularity of BOTOX has led to it becoming the most researched product of its type. Its results have been featured in approximately 4,700 peer-reviewed articles published in scientific and medical journals. When surveyed, the majority of patients agree that BOTOX was worth the investment.

Envision Your BOTOX Treatment  

BOTOX is known for providing subtle, natural-looking results. This is especially true when a skilled provider like Dr. Dowell injects it. Here is what to expect when you come to one of our offices in Carrollton, Dover, or Minerva:                                        
BOTOX Cosmetic is swift and effective.

Quick Treatment                    

BOTOX treatment does not require anesthesia, but we may apply topical creams or ice to help minimize discomfort. Dr. Dowell will first mark injection sites like your eyelids, forehead, or cheeks, then inject the botulinum toxin into the underlying muscles. That is all that this powerful aesthetic-enhancing procedure requires.        

Swift Results                    

BOTOX is non-invasive and allows patients to resume their normal routines immediately after treatment. Your results may become evident within one or two days, with full benefits becoming clear within the month. These results can last for as long as six months before additional treatment is required to maintain them.        

BOTOX Treatment Has Some Potential Side Effects                                

We pride ourselves on being upfront about expected results and potential side effects of BOTOX. After treatment, you may experience temporary pain, redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site. Facial drooping and eyelid drooping may also occur. Reach out to us if you experience any troubling side effects that aren't going away on their own after a few days.                  

We Facilitate Affordability                      

We offer BOTOX for cosmetic purposes, not to treat medical conditions. Unfortunately, insurance plans do not cover BOTOX when it's administered purely for aesthetic purposes. 

We have taken steps to help our Ohio patients pay for BOTOX and any other treatments they desire. Feel free to speak with our team about our in-house payment plans or third-party financing through LendingClub® or CareCredit®. 

Botox vs. Comparable Options

Botulinum toxin injections are the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic procedure in the United States. This includes the most prominent botulinum toxin product, BOTOX, as well as competitors like Dysport® and XEOMIN®.

Whereas Dysport is typically used to treat larger areas like the forehead and XEOMIN is typically used to treat fine lines, BOTOX offers more comprehensive benefits by treating frown lines, forehead lines, crow's feet, and other wrinkles. We only offer BOTOX due to its versatility.

We Also Offer Dermal Fillers                                    

Dermal fillers are another nonsurgical, non-invasive cosmetic treatment we provide. While botulinum toxin improves appearance by preventing muscle contractions to smooth wrinkles, dermal fillers achieve their effects by adding volume to the face to fill out wrinkles.

Our team is well-known for our compassionate and understanding care. We are more than happy to listen to your aesthetic concerns and offer the right cosmetic solution for you.
