As we age our
skin doesn't just wrinkle, the tissues beneath the
skin lose volume causing the skin to sag and fold. A
facelift, which surgically removes excess skin,
doesn't address the need to infuse the facial
features with volume and dimension. A more
appropriate treatment for many men and women is a
Liquid Face Lift.
A Liquid Face Lift is accomplished using injectible
treatments such as BOTOX and Dermal Fillers,
including Juvéderm, Restylane, Radiesse and numerous
others. These dermal fillers are made of naturally
existing molecules such as Hyaluronic Acid and
Calcium Hydroxyapatite which are biocompatible,
biodegradable, and are absorbed by the body over
time. Dermal Fillers may be used to augment
diminished, sunken facial features like the cheeks,
cheek bones, temples, nasolabial folds (smile
lines), and lines around the mouth and lower face.
Unlike a surgical facelift, a Liquid Face Lift can
typically be done in around and hour, requires
no sedation, and results in little or no downtime.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is a muscle relaxing agent derived from
Botulinum that reduces wrinkles and fine lines by
temporarily relaxing the muscle. The most common
area of treatment is frown lines of the forehead. It
may also be used to treat excessive underarm
You can trust the Harley Anti-aging Institute professionals for your Botox ® Treatments in Atlanta.
How does the treatment work?
Botox® temporarily reduces the contractions of the
muscles that cause wrinkles. By relaxing the
muscles, the overlying skin becomes smoother.
Several tiny Botox® injections are administered
directly into the muscles that cause lines and
wrinkles. Your health care provider will determine
where those muscles are located.
Is Botox® safe?
Botox® is safe and has very few side effects. Rare
side effects include headache, flu symptoms and
temporary eyelid droop.
Will there be any downtime?
You may resume normal activities immediately.
Vigorous exercise or laying flat may be restricted
for a few hours following treatment. Many clients
undergo Botox® during their lunch break and return
to work after treatment.
What are the benefits of Botox®?
Botox® has no downtime as opposed to other wrinkle
reducing methods. Also, following treatment there is
little to no pain or discomfort. Results can be seen
after only one session.
How long does a Botox® treatment last?
A Botox® treatment lasts only a short period of time
and depends on how many areas are being injected and
the size of the treated areas.
How does the treatment feel?
The only pain or discomfort is a slight pin-prick
sensation from the small needle injecting the
Botox®. If necessary, ice or a topical anesthetic
may be applied prior to treatment.
How long do results last?
Results of Botox® vary and can last up to four
months. Generally, most people can expect three
months of improvement. Treatments are offered every
few months for maintenance.
Who are candidates for Botox®?
Candidates for Botox® injections are age eighteen to
sixty-five and interested in improving the
appearance of their face. Many candidates are
seeking relief from wrinkles and brow furrows.
Who should avoid Botox®?
Do not use Botox® if you have an infection where the
Botox® will be injected, are allergic to any of the
ingredients in Botox® or are pregnant. Some
conditions may increase the chance of infection, so
a doctor should be advised of your medical history
before receiving Botox®.
What are the alternative treatments?
An alternative treatment to Botox® is skin
resurfacing, which includes many types of laser
therapies and chemical peels. These procedures can
be painful and may have a much longer recovery time
than Botox®. Other alternatives include surgery such
as a brow lift.
Is additional treatment necessary?
Generally, after three to four months, the Botox®
effects will begin to fade and facial features will
gradually return to their former state. Maintenance
treatments are necessary to keep the effect of
Botox® for long periods of time.
What are the limitations of Botox®?
The limitation of Botox® is that it is not a
permanent answer to reducing wrinkles. Also, results
vary and occasional problems with asymmetry may
Instructions before treatment:
Avoid alcoholic beverages and anti-inflammatory
medications before treatment. Schedule a Botox®
appointment at least two weeks prior to any special
events to allow time to heal.
Instructions after treatment:
Treat any mild discomfort with Tylenol, and expect
temporary swelling. If desired, an icepack can be
applied after treatment. Do not massage the treated
areas because it may move the Botox® around and
create a different effect. It is generally
recommended to remain upright for four hours after
injections and avoid aerobic activity for a few
