When fine lines and wrinkles develop on the forehead, around the eyes, or other areas of the face, it can leave you looking tired and aged.
BOTOX® Cosmetic works by temporarily stopping the nerve impulses that cause wrinkles, resulting in smoother, more youthful-looking skin.

How does BOTOX therapy work and what can it do for me?
Understanding the Basics of BOTOX
BOTOX Cosmetic is the number-one injectable in use today. A minimally invasive treatment, BOTOX injections are effective for helping patients achieve a younger, more refreshed appearance without surgery. The procedure is quick and safe, with none of the downtime, scarring, or risks associated with surgery.
BOTOX Cosmetic is similar to other injectable products like Dysport® and XEOMIN®, which are composed of purified botulinum toxin protein that is carefully injected into the specific muscles that cause fine lines and creases. These injections contain very small amounts of botulinum toxin to reduce the activity of the muscles, thereby softening lines and creases and preventing their formation.

What Types of Wrinkles Can We Treat?
As we age, repetitive muscle contractions in the face create creases and wrinkles that can leave people looking advanced in age. BOTOX can address dynamic wrinkles that are more visible when muscles contract.
If your aesthetic concerns primarily deal with static wrinkles, meaning wrinkles that are always present, then BOTOX use may not deliver your desired results. Dermal fillers may be the ideal option.
Almost anyone in the Atlanta, GA, area who is unhappy with their appearance due to lines and wrinkles can be a candidate for BOTOX Cosmetic. We might recommend it to address:

Lines around the Chin
What Affects the Cost of BOTOX?
Number of UnitsEach facial area requires a different amount of botulinum toxin units. For example, treating the forehead will cost more than treating the corners of the eye because there is more surface area.
Treatment AreasFor patients who want to address multiple treatment areas, the overall cost will be higher. After evaluating your skin at your initial consultation, we'll be able to provide an estimated total cost.

The Treatment Process
What to Expect
Treatment typically takes just 15 minutes.
Recovery and Side Effects
You can return to your regular daily activities immediately following treatment, but you should avoid strenuous activities for at least 24 hours. Common side effects of BOTOX include swelling, tenderness at the injection site, skin tightness, and bruising. These typically fade within a few hours to a few days.
BOTOX Outcomes: The Timeline
When Are Results Visible?
It can take up to ten days for your final results to be fully visible. However, most patients notice a reduction in frown lines, smoothing of the area around the eyelids, lifted brows, and other skin improvements in just two or three days.
How Long Do the Effects Last?
It is important to remember that BOTOX Cosmetic is temporary. Results will last three to four months on average. To maintain your results, you will require additional treatments as the effects of the injections wear off.

How to Maintain Your Results
Take care of your skin by drinking plenty of water and having a regular skincare routine. Dr. Galitzin is happy to recommend skincare products to keep your skin healthy and glowing.
Protect your skin from harsh sun rays by regularly wearing sunscreen. While lines from the sun can't be addressed with BOTOX, sun protection is key to overall healthier skin.
While stress is a part of everyday life, making an effort to practice stress-relieving activities such as meditation or yoga can benefit your body and slow down the aging process.
Dispelling Common Myths
BOTOX Makes You Look FrozenContrary to popular belief, BOTOX does not make you appear frozen or emotionless - if administered correctly. Dr. Galitzin uses a modest amount of botulinum toxin to ensure natural results every time.
Stopping Treatment Makes It WorsePatients can choose to stop getting injections at any time. Stopping treatment will cause your wrinkles to revert to how they were before BOTOX, but will not cause them to be more pronounced.
BOTOX Is Only For WomenWhile BOTOX is typically thought of as a cosmetic treatment for women, men can enjoy all the benefits of younger-looking skin, as well. Because men have stronger facial muscles, a higher dosage of BOTOX may be needed.
Younger Patients Can't Use BOTOXMore and more younger patients are turning to BOTOX as part of their preventative maintenance plan. By utilizing injectables before fine lines appear, it can train facial muscles to prevent certain movements.
Combining BOTOX Cosmetic for Dramatic Results
While BOTOX is one of our most popular treatments available, our practice offers a wide range of injectables to help you meet your cosmetic goals. Patients with facial creases may choose to have both BOTOX injections and dermal fillers for more comprehensive results. If you are interested in combining treatments, our team is happy to consult with you and walk through your options at your initial visit with us.
