Botox® & Dysport® in Atlanta
When it comes to smoothing frown lines, crow’s feet, and brow furrows, Botox® Cosmetic is not only the most requested treatment option, it’s also one of the most effective. At Artisan Plastic Surgery in Atlanta, our experienced injectables providers are known for their intuitive, skilled approach and subtle, natural results. Our goal is to help you look natural and refreshed, and not at all “treated.”
We also offer the popular Botox alternative, Dysport®, to meet all of our patients’ needs. Not sure which is right for you? We invite you to read on or contact us to schedule a consultation to discuss your needs in person.
What are Botox & Dysport and how do they work?
Botox and Dysport are both neurotoxins; that is, they work by temporarily blocking nerve impulses to very specific facial muscles. This relaxes the muscles just enough to stop habitual squinting and frowning that results in lines between the eyebrows (frown lines) or outside the eyes (crow’s feet), as well as creases on the forehead.
Botox vs. Dysport
Botox and Dysport are both made from a low dose of the neurotoxin botulinum type A, which is just enough to relax muscles for a few months, until the effects wear off. The main difference is that Botox is formulated to spread a little less readily, while Dysport spreads just a little more easily.
Both have been used safely and successfully for years, and both end up costing about the same per treatment; some patients simply like their results a little better with Botox than Dysport, and vice versa. Our experienced professionals can help you choose the right product for your needs.see more patient reviews stars
I love this place! Extremely professional. These women know what they are doing! I highly recommend them!
What to expect with Botox or Dysport injections
No downtime is needed after Botox or Dysport injections, although we do ask that patients refrain from hard workouts for 1 to 2 days. Temporary soreness, bruising, redness, and minor swelling are common after-effects, which typically disappear within 1 to 2 weeks.
How long do Botox results last?
Botox and Dysport take about 2 to 7 days to start working, with full effects in place about 8 to 14 days after treatment. Results from either product will last about 3 to 4 months for the majority of patients.
Our Artisan tip:
If you’re planning for a big event like a wedding or graduation, it’s best to come in for your injectable treatment about one month prior. This allows time for any touch-ups to perfect your look, should they be needed.see more patient reviews stars
