Dr. Earl Stephenson, a plastic surgeon in Snellville, GA, has created impressive results for his patients with the use of BOTOX. A popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment for wrinkles, BOTOX is a purified form of Botulinum Toxin Type A that is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for cosmetic use. BOTOX works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles of the face that have created deep wrinkles from its repeated contractions. BOTOX helps wrinkles in the forehead area and wrinkles around the eyes, commonly known as crow’s feet. Patients have softer, smoother, glowing skin after a BOTOX treatment that gives them a younger look and feel.
"I am so pleased with the results from both my Botox and face sculpture treatments. Dr. Stephenson explained each step to me in a way I could understand. The results are fantastic! I will definitely come back to him when I need another "freshening" on the frown area or the marionette lines."- Google User / Google / Jan 26, 2011
"51 and Looking 40! - Snellville, GA - Going to Dr. Stephenson was one of the best decisions I've ever made. He's professional, but very knowledgeable, and friendly. One of the few who will actually take time to talk to you. I've had Botox and fillers (Juvaderm). I love the results! He will be honest and respectful. Tell you what to expect and what results can (or can't) be achieved. His staff is top notch. I'd recommend seeing Dr. Stephenson before you make any final decisions. It will definitely be worth your while."- J. / RealSelf / Jul 28, 2016
What to Expect
During the initial consultation, the forehead will be assessed so that the appropriate amount of BOTOX can be determined. Wrinkle location, depth and quantity will help determine the appropriate dosage. Most patients require anywhere between 1-3 syringes of the medication. During the same in-office appointment, the forehead will be marked with ink so that during treatment it will be known where the injections will go. The patient will feel a small prick as the injection is made through the skin by a fine syringe. Discomfort is minimal, but it is controlled with cold compression.
After their BOTOX treatment, patients are able to return to their normal activities. There will be some mild swelling and redness, but this is minimal and goes away within 3-4 hours. It is important for patients to sleep upright the first night following their injections, and exercise should be avoided for 24 hours. Results following BOTOX are most apparent around day 5-7. At this time, patients will notice that their foreheads are smoother and that wrinkles will have decreased significantly. They will feel younger and feel that their appearance has a new brighter glow!
Most plastic surgery practices charge about $350-$400 for one full syringe of BOTOX. Some patients will require multiple syringes depending on the severity of wrinkles, so the price will vary by patient. In addition, it is important to note that the majority of our patients return for additional treatments about every 3-4 months.
