Botox® in Atlanta, GA
It seems, in recent years, many aesthetic procedures have been replaced by modern alternatives. However, the popularity of Botox® remains unchanged. When performed by a reputable plastic surgeon, Botox® treatments can result in wrinkle reduction unmatched by other procedures. At the Atlanta Center for Breast and Aesthetic Surgery, Dr. Frederick T. Work, Jr., is pleased to offer this safe and effective treatment to residents living in and around Buckhead, Vinings, and Sandy Springs.
What Is Botox®?
Botox® is the name of a popular solution injected into the skin to improve signs of aging. This procedure is primarily performed in the face, through multiple injections in problem areas, such as the forehead or around the eyes. When you notice gravity taking a toll on your appearance, Botox® can restore a youthful appearance. In addition to its aesthetic benefits, Botox® has been used to treat overactive bladders, migraines, and excessive perspiration.
Botox® is an injectable solution which offers our clients many benefits, customizable to individual concern. Botox® is effective at the following:
- Temporarily lessen the appearance of wrinkles and lines.
- Look younger and have softer, smoother skin.
- Reduce or get rid of wrinkles on the forehead or other areas of the face.
- Control migraines with an alternative treatment.
- Reduce underarm sweating.
In addition to the medical and aesthetic benefits, many of our clients feel the greatest advantage of this procedure is self-confidence. By taking aim at some of our most troubling concerns, Botox® can help you feel like the best version of yourself.
Where Can Botox® Be Applied?
Botox® is a successful treatment for many problem areas. Most often used on the areas of the face most susceptible to aging, Botox® eliminates unsightly lines and wrinkles. Our office uses this effective procedure on the following areas:
- Gummy smiles
- Frown lines
- Lines on the forehead
- Marionette lines
- Crow’s feet
- Dimples on the chin
- Perioral rhytids (lip or smoker’s lines)
- Platysmal bands
- Bunny lines
How Is Botox® Administered?
Botox® is administered through tiny injections through a hypodermic needle in the region of the face being treated. In most cases, Botox® treatments do not require any preparation and can be performed quickly, without the need for sedation. For some treatments, local anesthesia may be administered before the procedure itself for maximum comfort. Dr. Work ensures each client knows exactly what to expect during Botox® administration and if preparation or aftercare is recommended. The effects of Botox® are visible immediately and can last up to six months before another appointment is needed.
Botox® Procedure Preparation
Prior to your appointment, we recommend avoiding any medications or substances that can thin the blood, such as aspirin and ibuprofen. These precautions are not a safety concern but do reduce the risk of bruising and bleeding following the injections. If you’ve recently had Botox® or other injections, notify Dr. Work immediately as additional precautions may be necessary. In addition, inform our team of your routine medications, including allergy medications, pain relievers, muscle relaxers and sleep aids.
Botox® recovery is minimal and many of our clients resume normal activity immediately following treatment. As a general rule, we do advise keeping hands away from the face and sleeping on your back while the Botox® settles. Avoiding exercise and vigorous movements is also recommended during a short period following treatment. Any discomfort can typically be managed with a cold compress, as it is usually very minimal.
