Botox® / Dysport Cosmetic Injections


The details

Botox® and Dysport Cosmetic injections are the most popular minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure performed. Used to treat facial lines and wrinkles such as forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, and lines around the neck.

Cosmetic Injections can also be used in the treatment of hyperhidrosis and migraines.

PRE TREATMENT

Do NOT consume alcoholic beverages at least 24 hours prior to treatment (alcohol may thin the blood and increase the risk of bruising).

Avoid anti-inflammatory/blood thinning medications prior to treatment. Medications and supplements such as aspirin, vitamin E, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, St. John’s Wort, Omega 3/Fish Oil supplements, Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve and other NSAIDS have a blood thinning effect and can increase the risk of bruising and swelling after injections.

POST TREATMENT

Do not lie down for 3 hours following treatment.

Avoid manipulation of treated area for a minimum of four hours.

Common side effects include a slight headache lasting a few hours up to 48 hours, and temporary bruising and/or swelling.

Avoid aesthetic lasers, microdermabrasion, or IPL over areas with Filler for one week after treatment.

Required Downtime

With little downtime and almost immediate results, Botox® and Dysport Cosmetic can help you restore a smoother, more youthful appearance to the face.

FOLLOW UP

Full Treatment effect will take 5 to 10 days.

Benefits of treatment may last 3 to 4 months; the average is 4 months.

Follow up treatments should be scheduled prior to return of full movement of muscle, usually at three months.

Juvéderm / Restylane Cosmetic Filler


Juvéderm® and Restylane are the most popular dermal fillers available for facial rejuvenation. These minimally-invasive injectable treatment can be an excellent option for smoothing folds in the skin. Additionally, it can add volume to facial tissues to help improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles, as well as augment the lips and mid-cheek for a fuller, smoother look.

PRE TREATMENT

Do NOT consume alcoholic beverages at least 24 hours prior to treatment (alcohol may thin the blood and increase the risk of bruising).

Avoid anti-inflammatory/blood thinning medications prior to treatment. Medications and supplements such as aspirin, vitamin E, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, St. John’s Wort, Omega 3/Fish Oil supplements, Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve and other NSAIDS have a blood thinning effect and can increase the risk of bruising and swelling after injections.

POST TREATMENT

Swelling, redness, and tenderness will occur after your treatment and usually resolves within 72 hours.

Cold compresses (a cloth dipped in cold water, wrung out, and applied to the injected area) may be used immediately after treatment to reduce swelling.

Avoid touching the treated area within 6 hours of treatment so you do not accidentally injure your skin. After that, the area can be gently washed with soap and water.

Until there is no redness or swelling, avoid exposure of the treated area to intense heat (sun lamp or sun bathing) or extreme cold weather.

Avoid taking aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, St. John’s wort, fish oil and high doses of Vitamin E supplements for one week after treatment. These agents may increase the risk of bruising and bleeding at the injection site.

Avoid aesthetic lasers, microdermabrasion, or IPL over areas with Filler for one week after treatment.


Sculptra Cosmetic Filler

In contrast to other wrinkle fillers, Sculptra works gradually with your body to replace collagen lost from the aging process. As a result, volume is restored and wrinkles and folds are smoothed creating a more youthful, natural, subtle look that lasts greater than 2.5 years.

Scupltra can be put in temple hollows, cheek hollows and depressions, nasolabial folds, marionette lines and chin/jaw line.

Scupltra takes 2-3 treatments with 6-8 weeks in between treatments.

Cost: Each treatment is $800 per treatment but if purchasing all treatments as a package, the first treatment is $800 and the subsequent treatments are $700.

There is a $200 deposit required at time of booking since Scupltra is made in advance for each individual client. The deposit is returned on day of treatment.
