Botulinum toxin, commonly known as BOTOX Cosmetic is FDA-approved to temporarily reduce the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and facial wrinkles. The anti-aging results begin to appear approximately 7-14 days after treatment and the effects generally last 3-4 months.
BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin are injectable neurotoxins that are well-known for minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by reducing muscle activity. We offer a customized treatment for each client.
Botox $12 Per Unit
Dysport $12 Per Unit
(3 units of dysport = 1 unit of other toxins)
Xeomin $10 Per Unit
Botox - Lip Lines/Lip Flip Starts at $100
Lip line treatments start at $100. Botox is a prescription medicine injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe lines around the lips in people to 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time. Botox relaxes the muscle that pulls your lip downward and allows the natural volume to flip upward.
Masseter Botox Price Varies
Botox injected into the masseter muscle is ideal for patients who are grinding, clenching, and wearing out their teeth, for patients who have frequent tension or migraine headaches, and for patients who do not like the shape of their face because of square or thick jaw line and who want to appear more feminine. The amount of botox needed to treat this area varies.
Botox Follow Up / Touch Up Price Varies
This appointment is reserved for patients who have received botox within 2 weeks and would like for our providers to take a look at the progress of their treatment and/or potentially add a few more units. This appointment is blocked off for approx. 15 minutes and is not meant for those wishing to receive a full botox treatment.
Neurotoxins like Dysport, Botox, and Xeomin are prescription injectable medications/neurotoxins, that are injected into muscles and used to improve the look of lines and wrinkles. MedSpa Downtown provides the highest quality Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin in West Georgia and East Alabama with a customized approach and exceptional skill.

WILL MY FACE LOOK UN-NATURAL?
Treatment with neurotoxins deliver subtle but impactful results. Results will start to be seen within 7-14 days following your treatment. The results typically last 3-4 months. However, some individuals who are genetically blessed, metabolize the product slower and can see results anywhere from 5 to 8 months. At MedSpa Downtown you will be treated by a licensed trained expert in anatomy so the results look very natural. Each Toxin treatment is customized to the individual. No treatment is the same.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES IN BOTOX, XEOMIN, AND DYSPORT?
Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport are types of botulinum toxins. These three products are primarly used for prevention and corrective treatment of wrinkles. However, they can be used to treat other medical conditions like migraines, excessive sweating, muscle spasms and other health related conditions. The differences between the three products are at the molecular level. Some people metabolize products differently which is why we offer a variety.
HOW LONG DOES A BOTOX, DYSPORT, OR XEOMIN TREATMENT TAKE?
The first visit can take anywhere from 45-60 minutes. This allows our staff to develop a individualized treatment plan based on your needs and physiology. We also take time to answer questions you may have during the initial visit. Follow-up visits typically take 30-45 minutes. Making it an easy lunch-time procedure for individuals working in Carrollton, Dallas, Douglasville, Newnan and/or Hiram.
