Atlanta patients who wish to treat facial wrinkles in the forehead, between the eyes, or in the “crow’s feet” areas around the eyes, may be a candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic. This injectable treatment works by weakening the muscles that control facial expressions. Once the treated muscles are weakened, the pull of the muscle relaxes and the skin flattens. The result is a smoother surface, a decrease in visible wrinkles, and a rejuvenated facial glow. Dr. Connors has spent many years perfecting his skills in facial injections and has been recognized nationally and locally for his expertise as an Injector.
"Jenny Azar and Heidi Love are so amazing! Heidi did my brows a few years back, and I receive compliments on them all the time like “I wish I had eyebrows like yours”! When I tell them they are actually not mine, and that they are microbladed they can’t believe it because of how natural they look! And when I started losing volume under my eyes and started seeing extra lines on my face, Jenny was there to ease me into fillers and Botox! I was so nervous about looking overdone, but again when I tell people I do fillers their first question is “where? You look natural” and my response is EXACTLY!!! Seriously love this group!"- L.M. / Google / Aug 18, 2021

"I'm so incredibly happy with my experience at PSGA. I live in Orlando and specifically traveled there for my surgery. Over the years I've also gone there for my Botox and filler injections because they do a phenomenal job and don't make you look "overdone." Prior to going to PSGA for my consult, I felt ugly and defeated that my body looked the way it did. I explained to Dr. Hart how much pain my legs were always in from "chub rub," my arms were always sore from the extra weight, and that my stomach just felt like it was flabby mush. For my surgery, I did a tummy tuck, 360 lipo, and lipo on my arms, legs, knees, and back. I'm in complete awe of how wonderful I feel and look. I know I still have some swelling because its only been a few weeks, but I've already seen such an improvement! Dr. Hart has been a rock star through the entire process from the consult, determining the best plan for me, the surgery itself, and frequently checking on my progress. The office staff is top notch and has been equally as supportive through this medical journey. I 100% will continue to go to see Dr. Hart and staff. I feel safe there and know that they are always looking out for what's best for me and my body."- S.H. / Google / Aug 24, 2022
BOTOX is administered during an in-office appointment that typically takes about 30 minutes. The depth, length, quantity and location of wrinkles varies for each patient. Therefore, the injection treatment, including the dosage and injection location, is tailored during the procedure. Patients will be marked for the specific areas on the face that are going to be treated. The injection is given through a syringe to localized areas on the face. Patients will feel a small prick as the needle inserts through the skin, but any pain or discomfort is controlled with a cold compress.
What To Expect
Immediately following a series of BOTOX injections, there will be some mild swelling and redness at the injection site. This will subside a few hours after the procedure. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately, but exercise should be avoided for a few hours. It is also recommended that patients keep their heads elevated for the first 8-10 hours. Results following BOTOX will become apparent within 4-7 days. About a week after treatment, patients will notice an inability to fully move portions of their forehead. With limited movement, wrinkles will cease to appear. The result is skin that appears smooth and soft.

Is it Safe?
BOTOX is approved by the FDA and has a long, safe history. It is administered in over 75 countries and consistently ranks as the most popular cosmetic procedure in America. However, even with its popularity, BOTOX is a drug and should only be administered by a qualified medical practitioner. Individuals who receive injections by someone inexperienced run the added risk of bruising, over medicating and ultimately, obtaining an undesirable result.
In 2009, BOTOX gained competition when Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA) was developed, approved by the FDA, and made available to the general public. Both drugs are used to relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles and frown lines. Some practices lean towards BOTOX to address forehead lines, while considering Dysport for crow’s feet. There has been much debate as to which drug is superior. Both have their advantages. Some distinct differences can be discussed during your consultation.
Botox or Filler?
Injectable fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm and Perlane help decrease wrinkles by adding volume to certain facial structures, which creates the appearance of smooth skin. BOTOX, which temporarily freezes the underlying muscle, offers a similar result, with a different approach. A skilled practitioner will be able to determine if a filler material or a product like BOTOX would garner the best results.
Individuals who wish to soften and decrease facial lines and wrinkles may be candidates for BOTOX. The most common age to receive BOTOX injections is between 30-55. However, it is also common for patients younger and older to receive injections.
BOTOX is not a permanent fix. Results will last for several months - sometimes longer - but they will not last forever. Qualified injectors will tell you there is good news and bad news when it comes to BOTOX. The good news is, if you are not happy with your results, the results will only last a few months. Likewise, the bad news is, if you love your results (which most people do), the results will only last a few months. Regardless, many patients recognize even the temporary results are worth feeling and looking younger.
