Botox in Alpharetta

Give yourself the refreshed “resting face” you deserve

botoxlogoDoes your face look not-so-rested, even when it is resting? We don’t want to say it, but maybe you know where we’re going. If you have noticed frown lines, crow’s feet or other wrinkles becoming a permanent part of your facial appearance, it’s time to consider Botox Cosmetic.

Botox is an FDA approved injectable medicine that relaxes the muscles responsible for creating worry lines, laugh lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet and other dynamic wrinkles caused by the contraction of facial muscles. Following treatment, you will look better refreshed, as your face won’t make that involuntary “scrunching” contraction that causes wrinkles around the eyes or forehead.

What kinds of wrinkles can Botox treat?

Botox gains “superstar” status when it comes to treating dynamic wrinkles on the upper one-third of the face. A “dynamic” wrinkle is one that gets more visible with facial movements, such as glabellar (frown) lines, crow’s feet on the outside of the eyes, and brow furrows. Because it is not a filler, but a medicine injected directly into certain facial muscles, Botox won’t help with “static” wrinkles such as nasolabial folds, since those remain unchanged no matter what your facial muscles are doing.

What to expect from your Alpharetta Botox treatment

Botox treatments at The Swan Center are fast and convenient, requiring only about 30 minutes total. After determining the most effective treatment points to soften wrinkles in your problem area, our experienced injector will deliver a series of injections using a tiny needle, giving you the proper concentration of Botox to relax the surrounding muscles while ensuring your facial expressions still look natural.

No downtime is required after treatment, but you may feel some soreness or redness at the injection site, and it’s a good idea to take about 24 hours off from strenuous exercise—just hit the gym prior to your appointment.

How long will the results last?

Botox results appear quickly but gradually—most patients notice improvements about 3 to 7 days after treatment. The effects typically last 3 to 4 months, and a quick follow up treatment can help recharge your results. With regular treatments, many patients find they have “unlearned” the facial contractions that gave them such severe frown lines in the first place, and require less Botox to maintain their results.
