PROCEDURES

Can I drink alcohol after having injections?

Yes; however, drinking alcoholic beverages before injections increases the risk of bruising. Save those beverages for post-treatment!

When will my swelling subside post-injections?

We always recommend treatments scheduled at least two weeks before an event for any bruising and swelling to subside. Optimal results are typically seen three to four weeks post-injections.

Will I bruise with injections?

With any needle-stick, there is a risk of bruising. To decrease risk of bruising, avoid the following medications and substances for at least two weeks prior to scheduled appointment: aspirin, NSAIDS, vitamin E, fish oils, and alcohol.

How long do injections last?

Botulinum toxins generally last three to four months, whereas fillers can last anywhere from six months to 18 months. The duration of fillers varies due to the specific product used, the area that is injected, as well as the individual.

I’m pregnant/breastfeeding. What treatments can I receive in office?

Most treatments including botulinum toxin, filler injectables, laser treatments, and chemical peels are not recommended for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Microneedling is a unique treatment that is safe and effective; however, it is always recommended to check with your OBGYN first.

I’m pregnant/breastfeeding. What skin care products are safe to use?

There are several ingredients in skin care products that should be avoided when pregnant or breastfeeding. A few of these ingredients include retinol, hydroquinone, growth factor, and salicylic acid (over 2%). If you are unsure or have questions regarding what skin care products to purchase, a phone consultation with one of our providers can be scheduled. Furthermore, we always suggest consulting with your OBGYN before trying any new products.

Do you offer consultations?

Yes! You can schedule a 30 minute consultation with one of our providers to discuss your concerns and goals, as well as create a plan of treatment. A $50 booking fee is required, however, the consultation is complimentary with purchase.

How long will my appointment be?

Most consultations and treatments last 30 to 45 minutes; however, this all depends on what treatment you are doing. When scheduling your appointment, be sure to request enough time if you have other constraints that day.

Do you offer buddy appointments?

Bringing your friend always makes things more fun, and most appointments can be done with a buddy! When scheduling your appointment, be sure to have your buddy’s information so we can create a chart and add them to the schedule.

How many units of botulinum toxin or syringes of filler will I need?

The amount of product needed varies depending on each individuals’ facial anatomy, muscle strength, etc. You will be able to discuss this at length with your provider at the time of your consultation.

What is the difference between Botox and Dysport?

Both Botox and Dysport help to relax unwanted muscle movement, like brow furrows, forehead lines and crow’s feet. The duration of the products is similar in most patients, but some people have different experiences with each. Your provider will chose according to your desired results and current muscle movement.
