  • What is Botox?
    Botulinum toxin, commonly referred to as Botox, is a neuromodulator that helps relax the muscles, prevent formation of wrinkles, and helps with skin rejuvenation. There are 4 available products that are FDA approved for use in the US: Jeuveau, Xeomin, Dysport, and Botox. The treatment takes about 15-30 minutes and results last between 3-5 months. There is little to no downtime. You will have some small bumps to the injection site, but they can be expected to resolve later in the day. Bruising is also possible, but not common. Makeup can be applied 24 hours after the treatment.
  • Does Botox hurt?
    Botox is a quick and relatively painless procedure. However, ice or a vibrating beauty bar can be used upon patient request.
  • What happens if I stop using Botox?
    Nothing! Most patients think that if they stop using botulinum toxin, then all of their wrinkles will come back with a vengeance. Botox helps with the prevention of wrinkles and will keep already existing wrinkles from worsening. If you wish to stop using botox your face will continue to age as it normally would.
  • What is a "Botox Party" and is it safe?
    A "Botox Party" is an event that is held at a client's house, where botulinum toxin services are provided by an accredited healthcare professional. Botox parties are legal and are safe if done properly under the management of the right professionals. Botox does not have to be administered in a medical office or medspa if the proper protocols and safety measures are in place. However, either a physician, a physician's assistant, or a nurse practitioner must be providing the services.
  • What are Dermal Fillers and what are they used for?
    Dermal fillers are most commonly made of hyaluronic acid, a compound that is naturally made in the body. Fillers are typically used for deep wrinkles and volume loss in the face and neck. Fillers are now commonly being used for lip augmentation, to soften deep lines, and to improve the appearance of scars. The treatment takes about 15-60 minutes and results can last anywhere from 6 months to a year. There is little to no downtime. You can expect some swelling, and possible bruising. Makeup can be applied 24 hours after the treatment.
  • What is Microneedling?
    Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a minimally invasive treatment used to rejuvenate the skin. This is accomplished by using very fine needles that create micropores into the top layer of the skin. This triggers the body to create a cascade of events that promotes collagen production. Microneedling aids with improvement of the skin's texture and tone, stretch marks, acnes scarring, decrease in pore size, and reduction in appearance of fine lines. The treatment usually takes an hour. Results can be seen after the first treatment, but greater results are achieved with multiple sessions (typically 3-6). Sessions can be done in 4 week intervals. There is little to no downtime. You can expect to have redness, tenderness, and swelling immediately after the treatment. You can also expect skin peeling the following days. It is recommended that no makeup is applied 24-48 hours after treatment.
  • What is a non-surgical facelift?
    Non-surgical facelifts can be accomplished by different modalities, including botulinum toxin, dermal fillers, and PDO threads. It is up to the medical professional's discretion, based on the initial evaluation, to recommend the best option for you. Most often a combination of these modalities are used together to achieve a more balanced look.
