The years can take their toll on your body, and your face is especially vulnerable to age’s worst effects. Crow’s feet, frown lines, wrinkles, these all serve to make you look older and fatigued. Fortunately, board-certified Atlanta plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Crispin can restore youth and vitality to your face with BOTOX® Cosmetic, giving you the youthful appearance you desire.
Many of our patients have questions about BOTOX® Cosmetic, which is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure. These questions are reasonable, as it’s always important to understand what’s happening with your desired procedure. The most popular question is simply, “How does it work?”
The active ingredient in BOTOX® Cosmetic is a sterile form of the botulinum toxin. This contains no bacteria and presents you with little health risk.
Dr. Crispin will inject the BOTOX® Cosmetic into the area of your face that you are most concerned with. One possible example is your forehead and the unsightly frown lines that can develop there. BOTOX® Cosmetic effectively serves as a shield between your muscles and the surrounding nerves. It blocks signals the nerves send to your muscles, preventing them from contracting.
The muscles then relax and soften, which causes your face to look smoother and younger. Your BOTOX® Cosmetic injection should last you about four months, and you will need to return to Dr. Crispin for further treatments to retain your new look.
If you live in the Atlanta area and you’re considering BOTOX® Cosmetic for a younger look, please contact Mark E. Crispin, MD, PC today to schedule a consultation.
