Botox Cosmetic Atlanta

Botox Cosmetic is an injectable form of botulinum toxin Type A. Experienced plastic surgeon Dr. Marisa Lawrence will inject small amounts of the toxin into the wrinkle-causing muscles in the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes, paralyzing them. There is no down time associated with the injections. Results typically take between 3 to 5 days to take effect. Some redness at the injection sites and mild swelling can occur but usually resolve quickly after injection. The clinical effects of Botox Cosmetic last typically 3 to 4 months. Regular treatments 3 to 4 times per year are needed to maintain results.

Dysport is also an injectable form of botulinum toxin Type A. Dysport acts quicker than Botox, with noticeable results in 1–2 days. Dysport has been shown to last longer than Botox with effects lasting 4 to 6 months. However Dysport may be more likely to cause antibody formation with repeated use. If you develop antibodies to Dysport, your body neutralizes the toxin, potentially preventing it from working. Dysport is approximately 1/3 the cost of Botox; however, it is also 1/3 the strength. This means you will need about three times as many units of Dysport to get the same results as you would with one unit of Botox. As a result, the cost of Dysport treatment will likely end up being similar to Botox.
