History of Botox

Botox Cosmetic, commonly referred to as Botox, is actually the brand name of the neurotoxin developed by Allergan, Inc. Botox was originally used by ophthalmologists to treat crossed or wandering eyes. After it was found to be effective in reducing wrinkles, the FDA approved it to be used as a cosmetic procedure in 2002. Botox has received FDA clearance to treat facial wrinkles in the galbellar (frown lines) and crow’s feet (around the eyes).

Botox FAQ

We’ve compiled a list of the top 10 most common questions the OVME receives about Botox.

How long does Botox last?

You can expect OVME Botox Atlanta GA results to last 3-4 months. Over time, your muscles will regain movement, at which point your wrinkles and lines to reappear. This is a signal that you require another Botox or Dysport Atlanta GA treatment.

When will I see results with my Botox Atlanta GA treatment?

Patients begin seeing results within 5-7 days, with full correction at the 2 week mark. Of course, everyone’s body responds differently to the treatment. However, in almost all cases, the full effect of Botox Atlanta GA or Dysport Atlanta GA treatments will be visible 2 weeks after the procedure.

Is one brand or product better than another?

Botox Cosmetic is the popular brand name, but alternative brands such as Dysport are also effective. Some individuals prefer a certain brand based on their own personal experience. Whether you’re interested in Botox Atlanta GA or Dysport Atlanta GA, OVME is here to help you. We encourage you to schedule a complimentary consultation with our team so you can determine the product and price that works best for you and your lifestyle.

What is the typical Botox Atlanta GA recovery time?

You will be able to resume your normal activity immediately after receiving your injections of Botox or Dysport Atlanta GA. However, vigorous rubbing of the area or facial massages should be avoided for at least 48 hours after treatment. As well as avoiding exercise for 4-6 hours after treatment.

Does Botox hurt?

Patients describe the injections as a pinch however they are well tolerated in nearly all instances. It is unlikely that you will feel anything beyond minor discomfort from your Botox Atlanta GA treatment.

How does Botox Atlanta GA get rid of wrinkles?

Botox stops the contractions of the muscles that create the lines and wrinkles on your face.  Biologically speaking, Botox injections work by blocking the uptake of acetylcholine by facial muscles. Through this process, facial wrinkles soften and can sometimes be eliminated completely. Dysport Atlanta GA works in the same way.

Does it really matter who does my Botox Atlanta GA?

Although Botox is commonly used today, it is important that you use a highly trained provider who is familiar with facial anatomy, advanced techniques, and medical conditions that might prevent you from having the treatment. “Bad Botox” is common when patients go to individuals who are not experts.

How much does Botox or Dysport Atlanta GA cost?

OVME charges based on the number of units used. A provider will evaluate your areas of concern and provide you with a complimentary consultation prior to treatment. Call our office for per-unit pricing by brand name.

Can I get Botox Atlanta GA done the same day as other injectable procedures?

Yes, you can receive Botox the same day you receive other injectable treatments, including dermal fillers such as Voluma XC, Juvederm, Volbella, etc.

How should I prepare for my Botox Atlanta GA treatment?

Practice your due diligence and make sure you have asked your provider about any details of the procedure that concern you. Before treatment of Botox or Dysport Atlanta GA, we want you to have knowledge of exactly how much will be injected and how much you will pay.

What happens if I need more correction, or the Botox or Dysport Atlanta GA injection didn’t quite work in an area?

OVME is focused on your results. If you ever need an adjustment after your Botox treatment, OVME will gladly offer a complimentary correction up to two weeks after your procedure.

Botox for Excessive Sweating

In addition to cosmetic use for facial lines, trained medical aesthetic professionals can use Botox to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) in the hands, feet or underarms. Botox works to temporarily block the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive the chemical signals, the production of excessive sweat stops in that specific area. Clinical studies have shown that 81% of patients treated achieved a greater than 50% reduction in sweating. In studies, the median duration of the treatment was 201 days or 6.7 months. Symptoms will gradually return as Botox is not a cure, and additional treatment would be required. To find out if Botox is right for addressing your hyperhidrosis, schedule a complimentary consultation with our experienced staff in Atlanta, GA Botox.
