Dynamic wrinkles are those irritating lines that appear as crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines. Anti-aging products can only do so much to treat these lines, and there comes the point where you need something more powerful, something more effective, something called Botox. If you live in Michigan and have been considering adding this anti-aging injectable to your beauty routine, we can help you achieve the best results at Michigan Center for Cosmetic Services in Ann Arbor, MI.
Who Can Do Injections in Michigan?
Different states have different rules as to who can perform Botox. In some states, anyone with proper training can administer this injectable, but in other states, like Michigan, the rules are a little stricter, which in the end, is a good thing. Anyone who qualifies as a health professional in the state of Michigan can administer this anti-aging injectable.
Still, they can only administer it under the supervision and direction of a physician. While this may put your mind at ease, you still need to do your due diligence. Choosing the right injector is the most important part of the injectable process. Selecting the right injector could be the difference between amazing results and the kind of results that send you into a full-blown panic attack.
The Importance of Choosing the Right Injector
You should never trust your face to just anyone. If ever there was a time to use discretion and be picky, now is the time. Once you decide that you want to add Botox to your cosmetic or anti-aging routine, you need to first do your research. You need to find someone who isn’t just a health professional, but instead, someone who has the training, background knowledge, experience, and artistic eye required for cosmetic injections.
You need someone who sees you and your face as a canvas, not as just another patient. Botox results are only as good as the injector who administers them. Just because someone is wearing a white coat or has been trained to administer this injectable doesn’t mean that they are skilled and experienced in the art of cosmetic injectables.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Botox?
Botox is a neuromodulator that addresses is dynamic wrinkles on the upper half of the face. It is the most popular anti-aging injectable and is used by men and women all around the world to help smooth lines and wrinkles and improve their appearance. It can also be used to address some medical conditions and concerns and relieve symptoms and pain associated with those conditions.
How Does It Work?
This injectable works by blocking the communication between the nerve signals and the muscles. In doing so, it softens expressions which leads to smoother, wrinkle-free skin.
What Areas Can It Treat?
This anti-aging injectable can smooth frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. It can also be used to smooth platysmal bands on the neck and treat medical conditions, including migraine pain, muscle spasms, hyperhidrosis, and facial pain.
Is It Safe?
Botox has been around for over 20 years. It is a safe and effective way to target dynamic wrinkles, achieve a younger-looking complexion, and improve your confidence in your appearance. When performed at our office by Dr. West, you can rest assured that this injectable is not only safe but will deliver some incredible results that will exceed your expectations.
What Happens During the Treatment Process?
When you arrive for your appointment, we will cleanse your skin to prepare it for the injection process. Then, a series of small injections will be made into your desired treatment area. The entire process is quick and usually takes 10 to 20 minutes to complete. The injectable is fitted with a very thin needle, so you will barely feel a thing, but we can apply topical numbing cream to your skin before the treatment process to ensure your comfort if necessary.
Will I Have To Take Time Off Work?
This injectable qualifies as a lunchtime injectable because you can schedule it during your lunch break at work and be back without exceeding your lunch hour. However, you will have to care for your skin post-treatment, but you won’t have to plan around any downtime. You can resume most of your normal activities once your treatment is complete.
We do ask patients to avoid working out for 24 hours post-treatment, as well as any kind of environment that causes an elevation in body temperatures like a sauna, hot tub, steam room, or other forms of heat. You should avoid excess sun exposure post-treatment and keep your treatment sites protected with sunscreen or a hat to ensure the best possible results.
Will I See Results Right Away?
Once your treatment is over, you won’t see any initial changes in your wrinkles. Most patients notice a difference in their appearance within a few days of the treatment. The best results appear within seven days of the treatment process, so you need to be patient, but rest assured that you will see results once the injectable ingredients kick in and begin their work of relaxing your muscles and smoothing lines and wrinkles in your skin.
How Often Will I Need Follow-Up Treatments?
Once you receive Botox injections, you can expect your results to last approximately three to six months. Once your body metabolizes the ingredients in the injectable, you’ll notice that the effects will begin to wear off.
However, to maintain the most consistent results, we recommend that patients schedule follow-up treatments every few months to avoid the reappearance of their wrinkles. In just a few quick treatments each year, you can maintain smooth, wrinkle-free skin indefinitely.
