Plenty of Atlanta med spas offer BOTOX Cosmetic treatments, but few can provide the personalized attention and experienced injectors we have at our full-service medical spa. BOTOX is the world’s most popular cosmetic treatment because it softens unwanted frown lines and crow’s feet around the eyes, in addition to temporarily minimizing horizontal forehead wrinkles. Getting the results you want, though, requires an experienced injector who understands facial anatomy and produces results that look natural.
Benefits of Choosing a Diamond Provider for BOTOX® in Atlanta
Our practice has achieved Diamond status from Allergan, the maker of BOTOX, JUVÉDERM, and KYBELLA products. Only about 3% of providers in the U.S. achieve this status, which is based on the volume of Allergan products used.

BOTOX Side Effects
Numerous studies have shown BOTOX to be an extremely safe and reliable treatment. Bruising at the injection site is the most common side effect following a BOTOX treatment. The bruising usually resolves very quickly. Some patients may develop a rash and swelling at the injection site. Non-treated muscles may be affected but this is very rare. There is an extremely rare allergic reaction to the medication. Do not use BOTOX if you have an infection at the injection site, are allergic to any of its ingredients, are pregnant or think you might be pregnant. Consult with Dr. Larsen before starting treatment if you have any diseases affecting your nerves or muscles.
After Your BOTOX Treatment
Following your injections, you may notice a small fine bump and a little redness. This reaction to the injection usually resolves in 30 minutes to an hour. The following morning if you rub your fingers over the areas that were injected you may find a little sore spot. Strenuous activity should be limited for the first 48 hours following your injections. Most patients can return to work or their daily activities right after they leave our office.
- The individual injection sites may be slightly tender to touch for 2 to 3 days.
- There may be a small bruise associated with one of the injection sites (experienced by about 1% of patients at Dr. Larsen’s practice).
- Patients usually return to everyday activities immediately after the procedure.
- Patients are advised not to participate in strenuous activity for 48 hours.
Many of our patients combine BOTOX injections with our treatments, such as injectable fillers or other facial treatments. Ask our cosmetic specialists about creating a customized treatment plan that can address any skin care concerns you may have.
