What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is an injectable treatment made up of botulinum toxin type A. It works by temporarily blocking the nerve signals that cause muscles to contract. This process relaxes and smooths the look of lines and wrinkles that are caused by repetitive movements of the face.
During your treatment, BOTOX® will be carefully injected into the treatment areas using a small, thin syringe. You should gently ice the area injected over the next hour. You may experience redness in the area injected and this will resolve in 1 – 2 hours. The entire process usually only takes between 15-20 minutes to complete, making it a great option for those with busy schedules.
BOTOX® is a great option for individuals who are experiencing forehead lines, lines between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet. Ideal candidates will be physically healthy and have realistic expectations for the outcome of their treatment. A consultation at our Atlanta, GA office is the best way to determine if this treatment is right for you.
There is no downtime required after BOTOX® treatments, so patients can return to their everyday routines as soon as possible. Some individuals may experience temporary redness or bruising, which will resolve quickly. Be sure to avoid massaging or touching the treatment area afterward, as this may cause the BOTOX® to spread to an unintended area. Most individuals can begin to see results within 24-48 hours, with the maximal effect in 7 to 14 days. Expect your results to last 3-6 months before a touch-up treatment is needed.
