I wish I wouldn’t of listened to anyone, I was so afraid to have my procedure done for such a long time. I wish I would’ve done it sooner. Dr. Leedy and his staff were phenomenal. I am very happy with my tummy tuck, lipo 360 & BBL. I feel confident once again.

What exactly does Botox do?
Most people know what Botox is by now, but just in case you need a refresher, Botox is an injectable aesthetic treatment that provides temporary reduction of lines and wrinkles, primarily on the face. It is a form of purified botulinum toxin, a naturally occurring substance that’s refined for both medical and aesthetic uses.
Botox has been used for decades all over the world and remains one of the most in demand injectables to this day.

The most frequently asked questions about botox
Lines on the face are caused by the contraction of facial muscles. With the help of Botox, the muscles are unable to contract, causing any lines or wrinkles to smooth out.
Botox has received FDA approval for treating forehead furrows, frown lines between the brows, and crow’s feet by the eyes. When used for wrinkle reduction, it temporarily affects the neuromuscular junction, blocking the signals from the nerves to your face muscles.
The procedure is primarily simple and does not require any anesthetic or special preparation.
However, to ensure your safety and provide you with the best possible results, it’s important that your Botox treatment is administered by an experienced professional, like those at the Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute.
Before receiving Botox, you’ll undergo an evaluation to assess your treatment areas and one of our expert practitioners will advise you on injection placement. A small needle is used to inject Botox into designated locations on your face, and the number of injections depends on what areas you’d like to assess.
After treatment, which takes about 15 minutes, you can carry on with your day as usual but avoid strenuous physical activity for at least 2 hours.
The Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute has an in-depth understanding of how each facial muscle works, so we know how to inject the right quantity of Botox into the right place to give you a radiant result that’s still you, just with fewer lines.
Within 7 to 10 days you will start to see a difference. Results typically last three to four months, but to maintain the benefits of Botox you’ll need to return to the Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute for further treatment. The more consistent you are, the more beneficial Botox will be.
Botox starts at $13 per unit, and prices decrease as more units are purchased.
