Columbus Botox and Dysport: Experience Counts

Looking for a Botox or Dysport Provider?finding the right botox and dysport provider at timeless skin solutions

While an injection of Botox or Dysport isn’t surgery, it’s still very important to select a provider that has loads of experience.

Making sure those injections get where they need to go demands a real familiarity with the muscles in the face and how the two relax those muscles.

Platinum Plus

Dr. Carol Clinton, Gail Hogan and patient Taylor recently discussed how you want a provider that’s performing a lot of these procedures.

Timeless Skin Solutions is one of the top 3 percent of Botox providers in the country and has earned the Platinum Plus designation.

Clinton is often called upon by fellow providers to share her techniques.

It’s in The Way You Move

“Almost everybody has an asymmetrical face, ” Clinton said.

“Some people have more: some people have less. So you have to know where you’re putting the Botox to see how the person’s face moves.”

Easy Does It

An experienced provider will be able to quickly and virtually painlessly get the injectable exactly where it needs to go.

Taylor said her apprehension about needles faded quickly.

“I couldn’t even really feel it, honestly.

“I’d definitely do it again.”

Clinton said when done correctly, getting Botox or Dysport is less uncomfortable than a hair trim.

“It’s not as bad as getting your hair pulled when you get it cut,” she said.

Everyone’s Talking About It: What’s Baby Botox?

You might have heard the term “Baby Botox” bouncing around a lot lately. What does it mean?

Thankfully, this term does not refer to Botox for babies, but rather to the gentler outcome achieved by using tiny—or “baby”—amounts of Botox during treatment. It’s also been referred to as “Light Botox” or “Botox Light” and is ideal for patients who want to soften lines caused by muscle movement, without stopping this movement altogether.

It’s important to distinguish the difference between good Botox and Baby Botox.

  • Good Botox: A skilled injector will be able to use the standard amounts of Botox in a way that leaves a subtle (but noticeably improved) look. As a speaker at a Cosmetic Dermatology conference once said, “If you run into someone on the street, and they ask you who does your Botox, it’s not good Botox.” When it’s done well, the tell-tale signs of Botox—a heavy forehead, uneven brows, the “frozen” look—are virtually nonexistent.
  • Baby Botox: Because of the tiny amount used during treatment, Baby Botox is often barely noticeable. Facial expressions can still be made, even after it takes full effect, but they’ll be softened to allow some improvement of fine lines and wrinkles.

The human body has trouble maintaining collagen production in the areas where the skin is constantly creasing. This is why, as we age, the wrinkles stick around long after the crease is made. Botox works by relaxing the muscles that cause these wrinkles, giving the body time to build collagen and erase those lines. Baby Botox is such a tiny amount, that the muscles still move, creating wrinkles, but not as easily. The creases are less deep, so some collagen production will occur, keeping the skin more youthful and elastic.

Performers tend to be fans of Baby Botox because they need to be as expressive as possible while still maintaining a youthful look. The term is said to have been coined in the Entertainment Industry by film director Martin Scorsese, because he was unhappy with the “frozen” look of his actors.

The downside of Baby Botox is that the results don’t last as long, and treatment must occur more often for maintained results. As stated before, lines and wrinkles do not typically disappear completely with Baby Botox. A patient should still expect to have lines or wrinkles, but know they are softened and will not be as deep as they might without any Botox at all.

Regardless of how much Botox is injected, it is still a medical treatment. Make sure your provider is a skilled injector and performs this treatment often.
