Botox helps to relax the muscles that cause the wrinkle lines to form. It helps to soften the wrinkles lines on the forehead, the frown and the crow’s feet areas. Botox typically lasts 3-4 months depending on the individual.
Botox and Dysport are two different brands like Coke and Pepsi. They both work in similar ways to relax your muscles and decrease wrinkles lines. One product is not better than the other. Some of my patients have a personal preference to Botox vs. Dysport. Typically Dysport starts working in 3-5 days while botox can be 5-7days.
Dermal fillers are made of Hyaluronic Acid naturally found in your body. We use fillers to improve deep laugh lines, marionette (puppet) lines, or to fill in cheeks that have lost significant volume. Most dermal fillers last up to 1 year. But I encourage my patient to come in every 6-8 months for touch up to maintain their natural result.
Once you start using Botox or Dermal Fillers. It is recommended that you stay consistent with treatment to maintain your desired results. However, if for some reason you decided to stop injecting these products due to personal or financial reasons. With time you would revert to pre-injection state but never worse than before injections.
At Beautiful MedSpa we are mindful of our patient’s comfort. Topical numbing cream is applied to numb the area prior to injection.
In the state of Nevada, you must be a Licensed Physician, Physician Assistant, Nurse Practitioner, or a Registered Nurse to administer Botox and Dermal fillers. Rest assured, you’re in good hands. I’m a highly trained and experienced Physician Assistant for the past 10 years. Prior to becoming an Aesthetic provider, I was working a full-time job in an Emergency Room.
Getting aesthetic injections is a minimally invasive procedure and bruising can happen. Some patients don’t bruise at all. Patients can minimize bruising by reframing from foods or medicines that thins the blood 5-7 days prior to treatment such as Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Aleve, Fish Oil, or Alcohol. I recommend you take Arnica 2-3 days prior to getting injected to prevent bruising or to make a bruise go away faster.
I know it can be overwhelming with all the information and products on the market. That is why I recommend you book a complimentary consultation to discuss a personalized treatment plan just right for you.
