BOTOX® & Dysport®

Our changing facial expressions communicate surprise, joy, anger, and a range of other emotions. They also happen to be among the reasons we develop crow’s feet, worry lines, and forehead wrinkles as we age. Dr. Pierzchajlo skillfully performs Dysport and BOTOX injections at our Tifton medical spa to help clients from Albany, Valdosta, Moultrie, and Douglas, GA, minimize those unwanted lines and wrinkles to create results that look rejuvenated yet completely natural.

How Do BOTOX & Dysport Work?

Our faces age in different ways. The “expression lines” targeted by BOTOX and Dysport develop gradually around the eyes and forehead. Both BOTOX and Dysport—called neuromodulators—work by temporarily blocking the signals sent from nerves to targeted tiny facial muscles. By relaxing these muscles, the creases are released and the skin becomes smoother.

These “dynamic wrinkles” are different from the lines and creases that result from sun exposure and age-related volume loss that dermal fillers treat. Those “static wrinkles” include nasolabial folds and lines that develop around the mouth, among others.

How Much Does BOTOX & Dysport Cost in Tifton, GA?

The cost for BOTOX and Dysport treatments varies with treatment areas and individual patient needs. We provide each patient with a specific price quote during their consultation.

Should I Get BOTOX or Dysport?

Each product includes the same active ingredient but has a slightly different formulation, affecting how soon you see the results and how long those results last. BOTOX, which was the first neuromodulator approved by the FDA, typically takes effect in about a week and lasts 3 months before patients need a maintenance treatment. Dysport, on the other hand, takes effect in 2 to 3 days and lasts about a month longer than BOTOX, which is why we recommend it as our first choice to patients.

Another product, XEOMIN®, is a more purified form of BOTOX and also lasts about 3 months

Combining BOTOX & Dysport With Dermal Fillers

Our approach is to use the treatments that are the most appropriate for a patient’s concerns. This often means we recommend a combination of fillers and Dysport or BOTOX (called a liquid or nonsurgical facelift). Dr. P. considers what treatments will produce the comprehensive results you want, so instead of treating a specific area of the face, he assesses your appearance from an overall standpoint.

BOTOX vs. Dermal Fillers

BOTOX and dermal fillers are both injectables used for facial rejuvenation but there are some differences. Here is a quick comparison:

BOTOX

  • Treats dynamic wrinkles
  • Other uses include gummy smile treatment and jaw reduction
  • See results in about a week
  • Results last 3 to 4 months

Dermal Fillers

  • Treat static wrinkles and volume loss
  • Other uses include nonsurgical rhinoplasty, lip augmentation, and hand rejuvenation
  • See results immediately
  • Results last 6 months to 2 years

Who Is a Good Candidate for Dysport or BOTOX?

Women and men concerned about early signs of facial aging can benefit from Dysport or BOTOX injections, but we’re also treating patients in their 20s who want to delay the onset of wrinkles. Because Dysport and BOTOX work by relaxing the muscle movements that cause wrinkles and lines, getting injections early can help keep your skin smooth.

There are other aesthetic uses for BOTOX and Dysport as well, including:

  • Minimizing the “orange peel” appearance on chins
  • Reducing a “gummy smile”
  • Creating a more pleasant appearance by relaxing frowning lips
  • Jawline slimming
  • Relaxing neck bands (platysma muscle)
  • Brow lifting

It’s important to note that these treatments require an injector with a high degree of expertise, such as Dr. P. His experience and skills set him apart from other injectors in South Georgia. That is why patients travel an hour or more from Albany, Valdosta, and surrounding areas for Dysport or BOTOX injections.

Alternative Treatments to BOTOX & Dysport

Instead of treating wrinkles with BOTOX or Dysport, there are a variety of alternatives, which include:

For even more beautiful results, we can perform a combination of BOTOX/Dysport and some of these other treatments.

BOTOX & Dysport FAQ

Are BOTOX and Dysport better than JUVÉDERM and other dermal fillers?

Neuromodulators are better for smoothing out dynamic wrinkles, like frown lines between the eyebrows, that are caused by the contractions of facial muscles. Dermal fillers are better for filling out folds and deep creases such as smile lines around the mouth. Fillers can also sculpt the lips and restore volume to the cheeks, around the eyes, and at the temples. Often, a combination of neurotoxin and filler injections provides the best results.

Are injectable wrinkle treatments dangerous?

Both products contain a purified form of botulinum toxin and are very safe when administered in small doses by a trained and experienced injector.

What’s baby BOTOX?

This treatment involves using very small amounts of BOTOX to stop early lines and wrinkles from becoming deeper and more noticeable. It is best for younger people who want to treat dynamic wrinkles proactively.

Is a BOTOX lip flip better than lip fillers?

A BOTOX lip flip is a lip enhancement treatment performed by injecting BOTOX into the muscles of the top lip. Once the muscles relax, the top lip turns up slightly, exposing the red vermillion so that it looks fuller. In contrast, lip fillers actually make the lips fuller with injections of dermal filler. Depending on your needs and cosmetic goals, one might be better than the other. Often patients benefit from a combination of BOTOX and lip fillers.

Is there anything I should avoid after treatment?

While no downtime is needed, we recommend the following precautions for the best BOTOX results:

For the first few hours:

  • Don’t rub or put pressure on the injection sites
  • Keep your head elevated—don’t bend over at the waist or lie down
  • Hold off on applying makeup

Wait until the next day for the following:

  • Strenuous exercise
  • Extreme heat or cold
  • Alcohol or caffeine

What’s the best age to start BOTOX or Dysport?

Adults get their first neuromodulator treatments at a variety of ages. Many are over 40 and want to smooth out lines and creases that make them look tired, angry, or older than they feel. Others are in their late 20s to 30s and want to treat dynamic wrinkles proactively—before they develop or become noticeable.
