Atlanta Botox specialist at 4Ever Young Aesthetics & Wellness
Atlanta Botox treatments are very popular for many reasons. The aging process causes reduced elasticity of the skin due to loss of collagen and other factors. The lack of elasticity of the skin allows more dominant muscle contractions to cause wrinkles (rhytids). Wrinkles are dynamic (move with the underlying muscle) , and by simply relaxing the underlying muscles the wrinkles can be eliminated or reduced. Botox® or (Dysport® or Xeomin®) are non-surgical treatment for anyone in Atlanta who is looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Who performs the Botox treatment?
Botox is a drug. The sale of this drug is restricted to physicians. At 4Ever Young we believe that our physicians should be responsible for the accurate placement of this drug during this medical procedure. Our Atlanta Botox specialist are Board Certified physicians who are in our office every day to insure that YOUR procedures are performed by YOUR physician. “THE DOCTOR IS ALWAYS IN!”
How does Botox work?
Botox causes muscle relaxation by blocking secretion of a required enzyme (acetylcholine) needed for muscle contraction. Without the actions of acetylcholine the muscle does not contract and wrinkling of the overlying skin does not occur. Botox is safe when used properly by our Board Certified Atlanta Botox specialist at our midtown office in Atlanta. It has been used for many years to treat other medical conditions like cervical dystonia and neuromuscular disorders.
Are Botox injections painful?
Our Atlanta Botox specialist perform your injections with a needle that is so thin it is virtually painless! However, we do offer local topical anesthetics prior to injection for our patients upon request. Because at 4Ever Young Aesthetics & Wellness, “It’s All About You!”
How long does Botox® last?
You may begin to see the results of your Botox injections soon after your treatment. These results will continue to improve over the course of about 1 month. As with any cosmetic procedure, the actual results of Botox varies from person to person. Typically results last anywhere from three to six months.
Ask about our ThermiRase procedure which last 2-3 years without repeated injections associated with Botox.
What are the side effects of Botox?
The most common side effects of Botox include headache and redness and/or swelling at the injection site. These symptoms are mild and typically resolve within a few hours after your treatment. There are rare cases where flu-like symptoms, muscle weakness around the injection, and drooping of the eyelids have been reported. These symptoms resolved within a few days after treatment.
Our physicians are in our midtown, Atlanta office every day to answer all of your questions regarding this medical prescription medication and the side effects prior to performing your procedure themselves.
