What Is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is a prescription injection approved by the FDA for multiple uses. However, the primary cosmetic use of BOTOX® applies to the temporary correction of unwanted wrinkles and lines on the face. BOTOX® achieved FDA approval before any other brand using bacterium clostridium botulinum.
Patients have trusted BOTOX® for decades. This proven and effective product offers quick results for patients as an alternative to cosmetic surgery. BOTOX® works to address the signs of aging, such as frown lines and crow’s feet.
How Does BOTOX® Work?
Your trusted Atlanta Smiles dentist has the proper training to administer BOTOX®. We are experts in the treatment of the mouth and face. BOTOX® works with an injection into the facial muscles to temporarily freeze or relax the muscles so they cannot contract, acting the same way a neurotoxin would.
The freezing effect causes the wrinkles and lines on the overlying skin to smoothen, which creates a younger-looking appearance. Injecting Botox into the facial muscles can also relieve pain caused by muscle spasms because of teeth and jaw problems like clenching and grinding.
Before the injection, we carefully calibrate the dose for safe and effective use based on each patient’s health and the goal of the treatment. BOTOX® subtlety changes the facial aesthetics without the long-term commitment of cosmetic surgery.
How Long Does the Procedure Take?
Treatment with BOTOX® can take as little as 15 minutes, depending on the size of the target area. We may apply a topical anesthetic before beginning the treatment to minimize discomfort. We administer the injectable using a thin needle inserted into the tissue. Once we complete the procedure, you can resume your routine without any required downtime.

Most patients can benefit from BOTOX® treatment. BOTOX® even has FDA approval for use in children for specific medical conditions. We offer BOTOX® treatment for cosmetic use and pain relief.
BOTOX® isolates muscle contractions to smooth specific types of facial lines. However, it does not work for all cosmetic issues, like drooping eyelids. We recommend BOTOX® to address unwanted wrinkles and lines.
We typically schedule a consultation to discuss the procedure and answer any questions. We want to ensure the process works to achieve your treatment goals while considering your overall wellness. Patients with a history of specific allergic reactions may not be good candidates for BOTOX® therapy.
BOTOX® treats various conditions, from wrinkles to facial pain. We work with each patient to determine whether BOTOX® is the right option to meet your treatment goals.
- Forehead creases
- Gummy smiles, where excessive gum tissue shows
- Crow’s feet, or the branching wrinkles that form on the outer corner of the eyes
- Vertical lines between the eyebrows
- Lines around the nose and mouth or nasolabial folds
- Lines and wrinkles on the face and neck
- Relief of headaches or facial pain caused by teeth clenching and grinding
The treatment serum, which consists primarily of botulinum toxin, is administered painlessly and achieves quick results.
BOTOX® provides reliable results. Typically, patients experience the benefits of BOTOX® injections for around four months. We usually recommend quarterly injections to maintain the reduced appearance of wrinkles or pain relief.
Each patient experiences different timeframes based on their unique situation and health. Factors like age, skin type, and the advancement of the wrinkles can adjust the timeframe for results. We create a custom treatment plan for each patient to fit your specific requirements.
Yes. The FDA approved BOTOX® over thirty years ago. Patients have successfully used the treatment to address both health and cosmetic issues. The professionals at Atlanta Smiles have extensive experience treating patients with BOTOX®.
However, patients may experience temporary side effects like soreness and redness in the treatment area. Patients may see results from treatment immediately after the procedure, or results may appear more gradually.
Though BOTOX® and dermal fillers minimize aging signs, each one uses a different process to achieve the desired aesthetic results. Both treatments use injections beneath the skin’s surface, but while BOTOX® temporarily freezes muscles, dermal fillers smooth lines and revive the natural volume of your face. BOTOX® disrupts an existing process in the body while dermal fillers provide the skin with more wholeness.
Determining the best procedure for you depends on the location of your facial wrinkles and the scope of the work needed. BOTOX® works around the forehead, eyes, and brows, while dermal fillers treat deeper lines that develop over time, like smile lines near the mouth. Dermal fillers also enhance your existing facial contours by adding to your overall appearance rather than subtracting an unwanted feature.
