The A, B, C’s of BOTOX® Cosmetic

Women and men looking for a non-surgical answer to the early signs of aging often turn to BOTOX® Cosmetic in Atlanta. This safe and effective answer to wrinkles and fine lines is a great way to achieve the look that you desire. Here are some quick facts about this popular treatment:

  • BOTOX Cosmetic is a botulinum toxin (type A) that is FDA approved for temporary treatment of glabellar lines. Botulinum toxin is a type of protein that has a number of medical uses.
  • Unlike dermal fillers, BOTOX Cosmetic targets facial muscles. The injections temporarily block nerve impulses to reduce muscle activity, as opposed to “filling in” wrinkles.
  • Side effects are typically mild and rare when treatment is administered by a trained professional. Botulinum toxin has an excellent safety record and history of medical use.
  • BOTOX Cosmetic can provide a great complement to other non-surgical procedures. For example, many women and men combine BOTOX Cosmetic with dermal fillers for a “liquid facelift.”
