BOTOX® in Atlanta, GA
Fine lines and wrinkles can be a problem even if they are not medically harmful. They can make you feel self-conscious and less confident in yourself. They can also make you appear older than you really are. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections in central Georgia can give you a more youthful appearance without the crow’s feet and frown lines that you dislike.
Why BOTOX® Cosmetic?
Fine wrinkles and lines can develop with aging as you lose collagen in your face. They can also result from sun exposure, frowning and squinting over periods of years, and harmful chemicals called free radicals in the environment. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections can make the results of these processes less visible.
What to Expect with Treatment
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medication that you receive through injections near the target site. Each treatment takes less than an hour. The doctor can numb the area with ice before the injections. You will receive five injections in your head for frown lines, and three injections near each eye for crow’s feet.
You usually do not need to schedule time off work or away from regular activities. The results are most noticeable within five days after treatment, and last for several months. Possible side effects include eyelid drooping, headaches, and blurred vision.

Botox Treatment FAQs
Botox (Botulinum Toxin) is a purified protein that’s injected into the muscles of the face. The toxin then blocks motor nerve transmitters, which prevents the muscles from contracting. This, in turn, helps reduce the natural wrinkles and fine lines that appear with natural aging. Offering a smoother appearance on the face, the effects of Botox can take up to ten days to show in full, and the results generally last around three to four months.
As Botox doesn’t offer a permanent change to your appearance, you will eventually need to schedule retreatment if you want to retain its effects. Your botox surgeon will make sure you’re aware of this beforehand, so it doesn’t come as a surprise.
Botox is generally administered around the lips, between the eyes, on the forehead, and around the corners of the eyes. Once the effects of the treatment start to wear off, that’s your cue to look into retreatment if you want to keep a consistent look.
With any modification to the body, there are bound to be a few side effects that can potentially arise. If you happen to run into any side effects, they’re known to be quite mild in nature, as well as temporary.
Some of the known side effects of a Botox treatment include swelling, soreness, or minor bruising. In very rare cases, you may experience botulism, which could lead to trouble swallowing, breathing, or speaking, but this would only arise in extreme, isolated cases and shouldn’t scare you from pursuing the procedure.
Botox surgery is known to be a very safe procedure, with millions of people going through the treatment multiple times a year, for years on end. Of course, it’s important to research your surgeon and ensure they’re capable of ensuring your safety and achieving the results you desire. If you’re looking for a botox treatment in Atlanta, we’re more than equipped to answer all of your questions before you commit to the procedure.
Thankfully, you won’t have to deal with much downtime after your procedure. Even if you experience one of the mild side effects listed above, you’ll still be comfortable enough to engage in your daily activities as soon as you leave your appointment. It’s also safe to apply makeup after your procedure if that’s what you prefer.
Your surgeon will make sure to take a detailed and meticulous approach to your procedure to ensure your comfort during and after. If you have any issues after your treatment, make sure to call us at 678-902-9495, as your health is the most important above all else. Even if Botox treatments are considered to be quite safe, the potential side effects should never once be ignored. Always remember that each person’s body is different, and it’s possible that your recovery may look and feel different than some others.
