Alpharetta BOTOX® Cosmetic
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, Roswell, and Woodstock, GA, locations. We also offer Dysport® and XEOMIN® injections, which work in the same manner as BOTOX. At our boutique practice serving Marietta and surrounding areas, we provide the type of patient care that we would want for our own family members.
Who can benefit from BOTOX injections?
Most people think of BOTOX as a way to minimize wrinkles once they’ve developed. While that is one of the primary uses, but 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:
- Horizontal forehead furrows
- Vertical frown lines between the brows
- Crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes
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.
I get my all of my injectables from Dr. Yalif and even after moving make the commute to see him for regular followups. As of now I have received Botox and Juvederm multiple times…

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.
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 3 or 4 days. Results can last up to 4 months, and regularly scheduled injections can result in prolonged results.

Can I combine BOTOX injections with other procedures?
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.
Is there any downtime with BOTOX?
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.
Can You Use BOTOX to Treat Other Issues?
BOTOX has many theoretical applications and has slowly gained acceptance as an adjunct for treatment of both medical and cosmetic indications. Medical uses include:
- Stress headaches
- TMJ pain and dysfunction
- Excessive sweating in the armpits or hands
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 the appearance.
Here at Y Plastic Surgery we offer BOTOX for all cosmetic indications and most of the medical ones, except for headaches, as these are usually addressed with a neurologist.
Even though many med spas offer BOTOX, patients from the Atlanta area travel to our practice to have an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon administer the injections.
