APPOINTMENTS

What to expect afterwards

Bruising varies between patients. Usually minimal bruising occurs and resolves within 2-3 days. On occasion, some bruising may be more significant and last 7-10 days. 

It is normal to feel a headache or “firmness” in the injection area for the first few days following treatment. Over time, the area will soften, leaving you with a natural looking result. 

Lumps, bumps and asymmetrical swelling are also common adverse effects.

 

Please call us immediately if you have significant swelling, pain or changes in vision.

 Botox/Dysport/Xeomin Post Treatment instructions

 IN ORDER TO MINIMIZE THE RISK OF POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS AND COMPLICATIONS POST-INJECTIONS, PLEASE FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE STEPS:

- Do not manipulate the treated area for 3 hours following treatment. Do not receive facial/laser treatments after botox for at least 10 days.

- Do not lie down for four hours after your Botox treatment. This will help prevent the Botox from tracking into the orbit of your eye which can cause drooping of your eyelid.

- It can take 2-7 days to see results depending on product selection.

- Do not perform activities involving straining, heavy lifting, or vigorous exercise for 6 hours after treatment. This helps keep the Botox in the injected area and not migrating elsewhere.

What to expect afterwards

Bruising varies between patients. Usually minimal bruising occurs and resolves within 2-3 days. On occasion, some bruising may be more significant and last 7-10 days. 

It is normal to feel a headache or “heaviness” in the injection area for the first few days following treatment. Over time, the area will soften, leaving you with a natural looking result. 

Please allow 2 weeks for full effects and at that time, we are happy to do additional touchup if needed.

 

We strive for the most natural look, and so we aim on the lower end of dosages in order to “learn” your face. It is easy to add more Botox, but we are unable to take it away. Thank you for understanding.

What to expect afterwards

You may experience red and/or dry skin for up to 48 hours after. Since your skin is healing, you should avoid strenuous exercise, hot tubs and saunas for 24 hrs. You can apply makeup and SPF the next day. Please avoid any products with active ingredients for 4 days.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS? 

Most people see results in about 1-2 weeks. If treating scarring or deep wrinkles, it may take multiple treatments to see results. The recommended treatment is 3 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart. 

MICRONEEDLING

 WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?

Microneedling is a minimally-invasive procedure that uses a device with very small, fine needles to penetrate the skin. These micro-wounds generate new collagen and skin tissue to help plump skin and break up scar tissue as well as reduce hyperpigmentation and fine lines and wrinkles.

GREAT FOR:

Fine lines and wrinkles, Scarring, Large pores, Hyperpigmentation, Sun damage

WHAT TO EXPECT:

Prior to your treatment your skin will be cleansed and numbing cream applied for optimal comfort. Then we will apply a super serum that includes hydrating ingredients and antioxidants while using the skin needling device to puncture your skin. Redness and minor bleeding is to be expected.
