About BOTOX

To help in aging gracefully and to avoid facial wrinkles and lines from occurring on the top portion of the face, the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery in Atlanta, GA is pleased to offer BOTOX. This injectable treatment offers outstanding results and is very common among both women and men. BOTOX can make a significant improvement to dynamic lines, which are made from expressive movement with the contracting muscles on the forehead and around the eyes. These facial lines go away when the face is relaxed, but dynamic folds can still remain. This muscle relaxer is a clean and purified strain of type A botulinum toxin that temporarily freezes the movements of the facial muscles. To soften these static wrinkles, BOTOX is carefully injected to smooth the skin. BOTOX injections are most commonly administered by plastic surgeon Dr. Fara Movagharnia between the eyebrows, around the eyes (Crow's feet), and across the forehead.

Ideal Candidates

BOTOX injections are great for patients who wish to soften the visible look of dynamic lines and wrinkles on their upper face without surgery. BOTOX can also be used as a preventative anti-aging treatment even if you do not show signs of aging — keep in mind how often you find yourself making facial expressions. It's a terrific noninvasive treatment if you are frustrated by forehead wrinkles or parallel lines between the brows. It is also a solution for lines around the eyes. If you experience more severe and deeper lines, a filler product may be more suitable. In addition, if you are over the age of 50 with sagging skin and widespread wrinkles, you may be considered for a facelift surgery. This delivers a more impactful result and it is longer lasting. The Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery offers eyelid surgeries, facelifts, and brow lifts as effective options.

Procedure Technique

BOTOX treatments are completed as an outpatient procedure conveniently at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery. If it is your first time to visit our office in Atlanta, GA to get BOTOX, we often perform the treatment on the same day as your initial consultation with Dr. Movagharnia. You will be asked to make different expressions using your upper face, like frowning, squinting, smiling, etc., to help us plan where the injections will be placed. The face will be prepared and BOTOX will be applied with a fine needle, followed with gentle compressions to help lessen swelling, bruising, and discomfort. You can ask for an ice pack or numbing cream to help make the procedure more comfortable, but it usually is unnecessary. BOTOX treatments typically take around 10 – 15 minutes, then you may resume your usual routine after a short rest.

What to Expect

Following the procedure, you may get back to your daily routine, although strenuous activity should be skipped for a minimum of one day. You will be advised to sleep with your head elevated for at least one night and to avoid touching your face, which can accidentally spread the BOTOX to other areas. The injected sections of your face can appear bruised, swollen, or red for 2 – 3 days, but you should not develop any serious or long-lasting side effects. In many cases, it usually takes around one week before the final results of BOTOX can be seen. The results usually last 3 – 4 months. You can talk to your BOTOX injector about when to make your next appointment at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery to extend your results.
