1. How long do these procedures last?
Depending on the procedure you do, your age and lifestyle play a determining factor in how long botox injections and dermal fillers last. Patients ages 18-65 can expect a 30-70% reduction in wrinkles 30 days after their initial treatment. Botox results lasts up to 4 months. Combining your botox treatment with an RF Laser treatment such as Sublime Skin Tightening can help one maintain tight beautiful smooth skin for up to 6 months. Botox and RF Skin Tightening treatments can be done together with our Sprinkles and Sublime treatment we offer for that one of a kind all natural look specifically tailored to by our physician according to your Facial Contouring needs.
2. Is it going to hurt?
Well what is painful to one persons delicate skin vs. another persons definitely varies. Some people are very relaxed and some are a bit nervous so are sure to ice and apply topical lidocaine as needed. We special order very small needles for patients comfort that even the most delicate skin sometimes does not feel. We go as slow as you need us to go to maximize your comfort. Most patients are pleased with how painless the procedures are.

4. Can I only do botox in one area? Or only use 20 units?
Yes and yes! You and the doctor can discuss the amount of units you need to use to correct your areas of concerns. Keep in mind that all botox vials are SINGLE PATIENT USE vials. Vials come in various unit sizes between 50-300 units. FDA has approved 20 units for the frown lines, 20 units for the forehead lines and 12.5 units for each crows feet area; that totals 65 units. So you will need to purchase a 100 unit vial to achieve full correction. If you only purchase the 50 unit vial you may not achieve full correction. Any used botox is discarded unless you and the doctor discuss another possible area to use the remaining units of botox.
5. How long is the recovery before I can exercise and go back to work? Will I be bruised?
Most clients can return back to their regular routines immediately. We provide all clients with Arnica and an ice pack to take home to help prevent any possible bruising.
