Constant frowning, scowling, and other emotional facial expressions cause deep lines and wrinkles in the face.
Botox is a well-known beauty treatment that relaxes mild, moderate, and even deep wrinkles on the face, giving you a revitalized, youthful look and putting an end to the questions, "Are you sad?" and "You look tired?" Our highly regarded medical specialist, Dr. Asaf Yalif, here at Y Plastic Surgery in Atlanta, wants you to feel as good as you look.
When injected by a qualified provider, FDA-approved Botox® Cosmetic is one of the safest and most effective treatments for minimizing wrinkles. Triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Asaf Yalif personally performs Botox injections for Atlanta metro patients at our Alpharetta and Atlanta, GA, locations.
We also offer Dysport® and XEOMIN® injections, which work in the same manner as Botox. At our two boutique practice locations serving Alpharetta, Atlanta, and surrounding areas, we provide the type of patient care that we would want for our own family members.
Here at Y Plastic Surgery, we offer Botox for all cosmetic indications and some medical ones, except for headaches, as these are usually addressed with a neurologist. Even though many med spas offer Botox Atlanta patients come to our practice to have an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon administer the injections.

The Power of Botox
Most people think of Botox as a way to minimize wrinkles once they’ve developed. While that is one of the primary uses, we can help people even in their 20s delay the formation of wrinkles with Botox. That’s because it temporarily immobilizes the tiny facial muscles that cause “dynamic” wrinkles through repeated contractions.
Facial expressions like squinting, smiling, frowning, and raising your eyebrows can create:
In addition to these concerns, Botox can treat “bunny lines” seen on the top of the nose, wrinkled chins, “lipstick lines,” and help create a smoother neck when combined with fillers.
What should I expect during my Botox treatment?
Dr. Yalif personally performs Botox injections, which is why patients continue to choose Y Plastic Surgery for their treatments.
He typically administers the injections on the same day as your consultation. The procedure itself lasts from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated. Most patients describe the sensation of the injections themselves as feeling like a tiny pinch. We can also numb the treatment area with ice or a topical anesthetic.
I get all of my injectables from Dr. Yalif, and even after moving, I make the commute to see him for regular follow-ups. As of now, I have received Botox and Juvederm multiple times…

How Long Will It Take To See My Botox Results?
It can be up to a week before you see the full results of your Botox treatment, although patients may see some reduction in wrinkles and lines within three to four days. Results can last up to four months, and regularly scheduled injections can result in prolonged results.
Botox should start to work after four to seven days. After two to three weeks, the full effect should be seen. Most people have the treatment again in three to four months for optimal results. Botox not only makes your skin look better, but it also teaches your facial muscles to contract less often in the future—this means you can go longer between touch-ups.
Dr. Yalif combines the skill of a fellowship-trained plastic surgeon with a warm bedside manner that puts patients at ease from the moment they meet him. He leads a small team of dedicated professionals at our boutique practice, where you'll be treated as a member of the Y Plastic Surgery family.

Combining nonsurgical treatments is a common, effective strategy for comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Many women and men who aren’t interested in cosmetic surgery can benefit from a treatment plan that includes injectables and nonsurgical skin tightening procedures such as ThermiSmooth® Face. Injectable fillers, such as JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®, can restore volume to areas of the face such as the cheeks, under the eyes, and nasolabial folds.
One of the reasons for the popularity of Botox and other nonsurgical treatments is that there is little or no downtime needed. These treatments are often called “lunchtime procedures” because patients can often return to work after getting the injections.
Botox has many theoretical applications and has slowly gained acceptance as an adjunct for the treatment of both medical and cosmetic indications. Medical uses include:
In the cosmetic realm, we obviously use Botox throughout the face to smooth wrinkles, but we can also smooth wrinkles elsewhere, as with Scrotox—injections into the scrotum to smooth its appearance.
