HOWLAND, Ohio - Liberty resident Toni Stefan is wanting a more fresh look, especially after the conversation she had with her brother.

"He said, 'You've got the Edelsten (her maiden name) scowl between your eyes,' and I said, 'OK, that needs looked at,'" Stefan said.

So, she, like many Americans these days, scheduled an appointment to receive Botox injections. Across the board, Botox procedures are up 8% since 2011. According to American Society of Plastic Surgeons, it's the third year the industry has experienced a demand.

"I think the general desire is a lower cost alternative. It is a quicker recovery because people need to be at work. They need to be back to work and this day and age they want to enjoy their vacations and not have a surgical procedure during them so that is why it is enticing to a lot of individuals," said Humility of Mary Health Partners plastic surgeon Dr. Adam Cash.

Botox, which blocks the nerve from activating the muscle, can soften the appearance of wrinkles. Dr. Cash says it can take up to two weeks to notice the change, although the injections typically last four to six months.

"Patients come back to me and their kids or their coworkers say, 'You just look energized. You look like you got well rested or went on vacation, like what happened?' And this is the result patients are looking for and what they can achieve with Botox," Dr. Cash said.

"It is less expensive, less downtime and I figured I would see how it works and then go from there," Stefan said.
