BOTOX Cosmetic

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.

At Skin Care at 5th Avenue, Dr. Joseph Galitzin is one of the Atlanta, GA, area's premier providers of BOTOX Cosmetic.

How does BOTOX therapy work and what can it do for me?

BOTOX Basics

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.

Is Treatment Really Safe?

BOTOX Cosmetic has been in use for decades and it was approved by the FDA in 2002. It is incredibly safe because it contains such a minute amount of botulinum toxin. Each year, millions of Americans safely undergo BOTOX procedures. One way to ensure that your BOTOX injections are performed safely and free of side effects is to work with a qualified medical professional like Dr. Galitzin.

What Types of Wrinkles Can We Treat?

Dynamic Lines

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.

Static Wrinkles

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.

BOTOX Candidates

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:

  • Forehead Creases

  • Crow’s feet

  • Frown Lines

  • Downturned Mouth

  • A Pinched Expression

  • Lines around the Chin

Treatment typically takes just 15 minutes.
Treatment typically takes just 15 minutes.


Prior to undergoing this cosmetic treatment, you will meet with Dr. Galitzin for your initial consultation. He will discuss your goals with you and evaluate your potential treatment areas, carefully observing the movement of your facial muscles.

Appointment Scheduling

Once Dr. Galitzin determines that BOTOX Cosmetic is appropriate for your specific needs, your treatment can be scheduled at our Atlanta area physician-driven practice.

Numbing Cream Application

A topical numbing cream can be applied to the injection site to reduce discomfort. However, most patients experience minimal discomfort without the cream.


A thin needle is used to administer the solution to the injection site so it targets the appropriate muscles. The total number of injections you receive will depend on the areas that are being treated.

Ice Pack Application

Although side effects are minimal, ice can be applied to the treatment area after your injections to minimize any concerns.

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

The results achieved with BOTOX are similar to those achieved by other injectable products that contain botulinum toxin, including XEOMIN and Dysport.

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.
