Expressions are meant to be worn. A graduation, an engagement announcement, and a funny joke your friend told you are not meant to be greeted with a straight face. Although the emotions from all of these milestones are fleeting, the lines and wrinkles they led to are not.
To us, injectables like Botox in Perrysburg are all about enhancing your natural beauty. Just because the wrinkles are gone doesn’t mean you’ll forget those positive memories that put them there!
What is Botox®?
Botox is a brand of neuromodulators that often serves as a catchall term for all neuromodulators. We offer Jeuveau®, Botox®, Xeomin®, and Dysport®, and tailor each of them to different patients’ goals. Neuromodulators are made from a purified strain of bacteria called Clostridium Botulinum, and it’s basically the scientific way of saying “wrinkle relaxers.”
At Blush Aesthetics, we inject small quantities of neuromodulator into your muscles to stop muscle contraction, and therefore wrinkle formation. You’ll still be able to move your face and have expressions—just without the wrinkles!

Will people be able to tell I’ve had Botox?
If you come to Blush, then no 🥰 We value natural, youthful results. If someone wants a more dramatic look with Botox (or any other injectable for that matter), we may point them in a different direction. When you’re our patient, we won’t give you any more syringes of Botox in Perrysburg than you need to look rejuvenated and refreshed.
Our philosophy is: we can be your little secret, or we can boast about your amazing results. The choice is yours!
Filler vs. Botox
Both Botox and filler address wrinkles—just differently. One of the main differences between them is how they address aging. Botox smoothes wrinkles and fine lines and stops muscle contraction to prevent wrinkles from forming or worsening. Filler “fills” in wrinkles and restores lost facial volume, including in the lips!
Another big difference is their composition. Filler isn’t a neuromodulator, meaning it doesn’t stop wrinkles in their tracks. Instead, filler is usually made up of either hyaluronic acid (found naturally in our bodies) or poly-L-lactic acid (a collagen stimulator).
If we had to pick between Botox or fillers, we couldn’t! All of our Perrysburg and Ottawa Hills injectables work seamlessly together to provide stunning results. A liquid facelift refers to the fusion of Botox and fillers for an overall youthful makeover.
After receiving Botox in Perrysburg, you can behold your full rejuvenation results in 2 to 3 weeks.
How long will results last?
You’ll want to come back for touch-ups somewhere between 3 and 4 months. If you want year-round results, visiting us 2 to 4 times a year will do the trick.
A neuromodulator injection session only takes 10 to 15 minutes!
Do injections hurt?
Some patients only report minimal discomfort, while others feel nothing. We do offer cooling hoses if you have a low pain tolerance. No one’s going to be uncomfortable in this house!
We make sure all patients who visit us for Botox in Perrysburg or Ottawa Hills know that treatment requires no downtime! When putting a needle into the skin, there’s always the chance for a little swelling and bruising, but it can easily be covered up with makeup. Ask us about our light therapy treatments that can help speed up the healing process!
You can carry on with your day, but be sure to follow these aftercare instructions:
- Don’t touch or massage the treatment area
- Avoid lying down for 4 hours
- Don’t sleep on your face the first night
- Refrain from exercise or strenuous activity for 12 hours
- Avoid direct sunlight for the rest of the day
As cosmetic dermatology professionals who genuinely care about your well-being, we want to provide you with a few pro-tips. These tips will help you decide whether or not you’re in the right place when seeking aesthetic treatments.
Check if they offer an in-depth consultation
A consultation is the most important step of the process! It’s our chance to get to know you, your concerns, and what you want out of treatment. We take consultations seriously at Blush Aesthetics, and to get to the good stuff, we make sure you feel comfortable and at home from the start! If you’re thinking about getting Botox in Perrysburg, here are some questions we suggest asking yourself during an initial consultation.
- Do they even offer a consultation?
- Is the consultation free? (It should be!)
- Does the team ask you the right questions?
- Does it feel like they truly care about you on a human level?
- Do they take an in-depth look at your concern areas?
- When you walk away from the consultation, did you feel heard and understood?
Take a look around
Some aesthetics practices prefer more dramatic results from injectables and other treatments. There’s nothing wrong with that—that’s why the aesthetics world is so customizable! Everybody likes something a little different, and everyone’s facial anatomy is a little bit different.
Typically at aesthetics practices, the staff are enjoying treatments as well. If you notice that the staff and your injector themselves have neuromodulator results that may not suit you, then that practice may not be a good fit. Like we said, everyone does things a bit differently.
At Blush, we prefer natural, fresh, and youthful results. If someone wants something more dramatic or an “overdone” look, we may point them in a different direction. We want the results we provide to support our values so that the patients who also have those values find us!
Ask for a portfolio of work
No, this isn’t the tattoo parlor—it’s even more serious than that! Kidding, but really; ask for some before and afters. You’ve gotta know what you’re getting yourself into before you’re stuck with results you may not like.
At Blush, we love showcasing our work on our Instagram. We keep it super up-to-date!
