Botox, also called Botulism Toxin Type A, is an injectable filler that blocks nerve impulses to the muscles and keeps them from contracting. This nerve block results in a softened and relaxed, youthful appearance.
Where does the Botox go, and how long will it last?
Botox treatments are the treatment of choice for forehead wrinkles, fine lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, and nose creases. It can also be used for Hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating) in the underarm area or on the palms of the hands. The results of Botox treatments will appear in three to four days. The effect will last three to four months, after which the treated muscles will gradually regain their action. A simple repeat treatment is all that is necessary to maintain the desired results.
Are there any side effects?
As with any injection, there can be temporary redness, swelling, bruising, or a mild headache. Patients with neuromuscular disorders should contact their doctor before therapy. Botox treatments should not be administered to women who are pregnant.
How many units will I need?
FDA recommended dosages are as follows:
The number of units required will vary by each patient. For recommendations on additional treatment areas, the number of units suggested, or a more precise individualized amount, please call to schedule a consultation.

Now at Georgia Center Med Spa, you can, Non-Surgically Improve your chin and neck profile with Kybella!
Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness, or “double chin.”
Treatment with Kybella is customized to the patient’s aesthetic goals for an improved chin profile.
What is KYBELLA?
KYBELLA (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved prescription nonsurgical treatment that is used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called, “double chin.” It is not known if KYBELLA is safe and effective in children less than 18 years of age. It is not known if KYBELLA is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area.
How does KYBELLA work?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
Is KYBELLA right for me?
Only you and your doctor can decide if KYBELLA is right for you. If you’re bothered by submental fullness or double chin, ask your doctor about KYBELLA.
How many people have been treated with KYBELLA?
KYBELLA has been the focus of a global clinical development program involving over 20 clinical studies with more than 2,600 patients worldwide, of which over 1,600 have been treated with KYBELLA.
What can I expect during my KYBELLA appointment?
You and your doctor will customize your KYBELLA treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile. Your doctor will give you a series of injections at each treatment session, which is spaced a month or more apart. Many patients experience visible contouring of their chin profile in two to four treatment sessions spaced at least one month apart. Up to 6 treatments may be administered.
Will I experience any side effects?
The safety profile of KYBELLA is well characterized. The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness around the treatment area.
