Dr. Huynh provides Botox in Buckhead, GA.

What is Botox?

Botox is a prescription treatment used to temporarily improve the appearance of crow’s feet and frown lines in adults. It is derived from a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum and works by blocking the neurotransmitter signal acetylcholine from the nerves to the muscle tissue. The targeted muscles can no longer contract after the treatment, thereby greatly improving the look of wrinkles. It is important to note that Botox will only be effective for wrinkles caused by overactive muscles in the face, such as frown lines. Wrinkles caused by sun damage or natural sagging of the skin will not be affected by Botox treatment. Despite being a toxin, it is generally not harmful when used for cosmetic purposes because the dose is very small. By injecting Botox into specifically selected muscles the risk of it spreading through the body is reduced.

How is Botox performed?

Botox administration is a quick procedure, which generally only lasts a few minutes with no anesthesia required. After an area for treatment is selected, Botox is injected directly into the muscle tissues of the face. The needle used is thin and normally causes very little discomfort. Results are typically visible in about 24-72 hours and can last up to 4-6 months.
