Are there any side effects after injectables?
The most common side effects are temporary, and may include: tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching. These side effects are consistent with other facial-injection procedures. Icing after injections highly reduces these side effects.
What does Botox treat?
BOTOX Cosmetic can help you improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between your brows, crow’s feet, and your forehead. Initially, you can expect to get treatments every 3 – 4 months to maintain the desired result. Most patients use Botox less frequently and/or in smaller doses over time because the wrinkles soften and become less visible.
Before your treatment:
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, Botox treatments are not recommended. Patients with Eaton-Lambert syndrome, Lou Gehrig’s disease, other neurologic diseases should not receive Botox. Avoid NSAIDS & alcohol 3 days before your treatment when possible.
After your treatment:
You may experience mild bruising and/or headache in the first 24 hours. Avoid taking ibuprofen, aspirin, & other NSAIDS for 3 days after your treatment. Avoid massaging treated areas for the rest of the day. Stay in an upright position for 4 hours after treatment. Avoid vigorous exercise, hot tubs or saunas for 24 hours after treatment.
Do Botox injections hurt?
It feels like a tiny pinch, however, we do offer an effective numbing cream and ice to help with any discomfort.
How long do results of filler injections last?
Results may vary, but dermal filler can last up to two years and in some cases longer! Many clients like to refresh their look after 6-9 months.
What happens in the office right before injectable treatments?
You will fill out medical history forms. Then you will meet with the nurse practitioner to discuss your treatment goals. She will walk you through the treatment and tell you what to expect, if there are any side effects, as well as any aftercare. She will also assess your skin and take before and after photos. Numbing cream may also be applied 15 minutes before injections.
How often should I get a facial?
It is ideal to see your esthetician every 4-6 weeks, especially if you are treating acne. It is so important to have a consistent home skincare routine!
