Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How much Botox/Dysport will I need?
A. Because everyones facial structure and muscles are different - it is hard to recommend an amount without first doing a consultation.
Here are the recommended dosing units per area from Allergan and Galderma:
Neurotoxin Recommendations Per Area
Eyebrow Lift = 2-5 U Botox / 6-15 U Dysport
Frown Lines/ Glabella = 10-25 U Botox / 30-75 U Dysport
Forehead Lines = 10-30 U Botox / 30-90 U Dysport
Crow's Feet (per side) = 5-15 U Botox / 15-45 U Dysport
Q. What is the difference between Dysport and Botox?
A. Botox and Dysport are both neurotoxins that have been FDA approved for the treatment of preventing and/or relaxing wrinkles in the face. The dosing for Dysport is different than that for Botox. Approximately 2.5 to 3 units of Dysport are required for every unit of Botox. For example, in the glabella 20 units of Botox would be equivalent to 60 units of Dysport.
Q. What should I expect from my Botox/Dysport treatments?
A. Expectations are very important when receiving any kind of Neurotoxin treatment or dermal fillers. Botox and Dysport are not wrinkle erasers, they are wrinkle relaxers. This is why it is such a good idea to do this treatment as a preventative before you start to see the wrinkles setting in. Once this happens, treatments such as fillers and lasers are best used in combination with Neurotoxins, to prevent the wrinkles from becoming more prominent and deep.
Q.When will I see results from my Botox/Dysport?
A. Everyone is a little different. We require you to wait 10 days before coming back in for any "tweaking". Usually you will start to see your results anywhere from 3 to 10 days.
Q. Where can dermal fillers be used?
A. Cheeks, marionette lines (around the mouth, nasolabial folds (around the nose area), lips, hands and ear lobes.
Q. How soon will I see results from dermal fillers?
A. Instant gratification!! The content of a filler is much like a sponge. It will absorb water, so the more water you drink the better your fillers will look. Two weeks post injection is usually when your filler will look its best!
Q. Do you have any specials?
A. All of our products and treatments are priced reasonably. With that being said, we still do love to run an occasional special. Whether it be on Neurotoxins, Fillers, Lasers or Facials.
Q. What is the best type of laser/facial for me?
A. We absolutely recommended coming in for a consultation so that we can see your skin and better recommend a treatment plan for you! We have all types of lasers, facials and peels that can address many different skin issues.
Q. How many laser treatments will I need?
A. Most people cannot get away with a one and done unless you are on maintenance. We will put together a treatment plan that works best for you and your skin care needs. When your goal is to rebuild the lost collagen in your face (ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS THE GOAL) a minimum of three treatments of any thing is required, 6 treatments is where you get optimal results.
Q. Do you accept CareCredit as form of payment?
A. We accept all forms of payment. We love cash but would also accept credit, debit and checks. If you have the updated version of the CareCredit card that is now a Master Card - then YES! we can take that too. If you don't, you should definitely look into it.
