Botox is a form of a purified protein which is created from a bacteria - much like penicillin is made. The protein is injected into different areas of the body to produce localized muscle relaxation. When used on the facial muscles it can help to reduce and prevent fine lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle movements. We offer a variety of neuromodulators to meet your needs including Xoemin, Botox and Dysport.
After sitting down and getting to learn a little about your skin history and goals, our Aesthetic RN Jenn, alongside the Medical Director, will create a personalized treatment plan to achieve your skin goals. The good news is that we can provide your treatment at the same appointment. No need to rebook!
We know how valuable your time is! Botox injections are a medical procedure, so as much as there are benefits (hello glowing skin!), we take our time to go over any risks and side effects related to the procedure. Patient safety and informed decisions are a priority to us.
Before you go we review what to do after your treatment, answer any other questions and book a follow up appointment!
The cost of treatment varies by each patient and a personal consultation can give you a specific amount of units that will be needed.
Q: How much botox will I need?
A: The amount of botox that is injected is based on consultation, how strong your muscles are, and what areas you would like to be treated.
Q: Will I look frozen?
A: No, I use Xeomin, this Neuromodulator gives a rested, relaxed and natural look. It is perfectly normal to still have some movement in the treated areas.
Q:How much will it cost?
A: Pricing is determined after the consultation, depending on areas being treated and strength of muscles.
Q: How long do I have to wait to get fillers after a botox treatment?
A: Two weeks. Botox and fillers can be injected at the same time, however it depends on the areas being treated. If it is in the same area, it is best to wait two weeks to see the full effect of the Botox before injecting any fillers.
Q: Can botox be used as a filler?
A: Botox is used to soften and relax facial muscles creating a more relaxed look. Fillers are injected to enhance the facial features.
Q: How do you make botox last longer?
A: Avoid rubbing your face 24 hours post injections, direct sunlight or intense heat (ex. Saunas, hot tubs, hot showers), alcohol or aspirin.
Q: How long does botox usually last?
A: Botox usually lasts 3-4 months, if you keep up with injections this time frame can increase to 5-6 months.
Q: Who should not get botox?
A: People who are pregnant, breast feeding, or have a neurological disease should not use botox.
Q: How long does it take for facial fillers to work?
A: Dermal fillers are instant, you can see results immediately after injection. Fillers can take up to 2-4 weeks to fully heal to see expected result.
Q: Does drinking water help fillers?
A: YES! Drink plenty of water to enhance the effect of the Hyaluronic acid filler. Hyaluronic acid attracts and absorbs water to give a fuller effect.
Q: Can I wash my face after fillers?
A: Avoid excessive touching or massaging the treated ares for about 6 hours after injections.
Q: Should you move your face after botox?
A: immediately after the procedure, it is recommended that you move your face around such as repeatedly smiling, frowning, or eyebrow lifting. Doing this helps your muscles absorb the botox.
