  • What is the difference between Botox, Xeomin, Juveau, and Dysport (aka Tox)?
    BOTOX, Dysport, XEOMIN, and Jeuveau aka "tox" are all neuromodulators derived from botulinum. Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Juveau are all FDA approved and aesthetically designed to smooth wrinkles. The result is almost always the same for each; they will all smooth and diminish the appearance of wrinkles. Botox and Dysport contain an accessory protein (usually egg or lactose) to carry the toxin. Over time, the body has the ability to build up antibodies, causing the results of Botox or Dysport to diminished after continuous use. XEOMIN does NOT contain accessory proteins, making it a "pure" version of botulinum toxin and reducing the risk of allergic reaction or resistance!
  • How long will my results last?
    Most neuromodulators (Botox, Xeomin, Dysport, Juveau aka "tox") produce results that typically last 3 to 4 months or longer. Studies have shown that individuals who have regularly scheduled neuromodulator injections enjoy longer-lasting results over time.
  • Does Tox hurt?
    Most of our clients report little to no discomfort during the injection procedure, no more than a small pinch. Utilizing ultra-fine needles and distraction, we can ensure you will be comfortable during your treatment. Afraid of needles? We do offer topical numbing if you are anxious about the discomfort factor.
  • When will I see results from tox?
    Most toxins produce results within 5 days, with the toxin gradually settled in by two weeks time. Everyone is different in how quickly they have effect from their toxin.
  • Is there any downtime with tox?
    There is no downtime required after toxin treatments, so you can return to work or home immediately afterward. Side effects may include redness, swelling, or bruising around the injection site. But these issues quickly fade and can be treated with an ice pack. After your appointment, you will receive post-care instructions to follow!
  • How do I know how much tox I need?
    During your appointment, your treatment provider will review with you your desired aesthetic outcome which will allow us to accurately quote how many units you will need to achieve your desired result.
  • If I stop using Tox, will my wrinkles get worse then before they started?
    No that is a myth, tox will not make your wrinkles worse if you stop. If you decide to not continue with tox treatments, wrinkles will eventually get back to their baseline prior to their treatment and continue to develop wrinkles as they normally would.
  • What areas are treated with toxin?
    Common areas for toxin injections include: Forehead lines Frown lines Crows feet Brow lift Nose "bunny" lines Gummy smile Lip lines Lip Flip Orange peel chin Facial slimming Excessive sweating
  • How long will my dermal filler results last?
    The longevity of dermal filler (fillers) results is affected by the specific product used and where it is injected. Depending on the formulation, your results may last between 9 months to 1.5 years. Each client's body is unique and will naturally dissolve and absorb the product at a slightly different rate. Most patients enjoy quick touch-up appointments every to help maintain their desired appearance!
  • When will I see results from my dermal filler?
    The great part about filler is that results is instant! During injection it is normal to have swelling that will resolve over the course of two weeks time, so filler results are best enjoyed about two weeks after injection.
  • Is there any downtime after receiving dermal filler?
    There is no true "downtime" after dermal filler injections and you may return to your daily activities unless directed otherwise. After your treatment, there may be redness at the injection site, swelling, bruising, or mild discomfort. Bruising and swelling are definite possibilities with any filler. We provide pre and post care instructions to you to minimize your chances of bruising as best we can. These are generally mild and usually resolve within a few days to two weeks. After your appointment, you will receive post-care instructions to follow!
  • How much dermal filler will I need?
    During your appointment, your treatment provider will review with you your desired aesthetic outcome and determine the most appropriate type of filler and amount to achieve those goals!
  • Is dermal filler reversible?
    The reversibility of the filler depends on the type! Most of the fillers we offer are Hyaluronic Acid-based fillers, which are reversible. In the unlikely event you want to dissolve some of your filler, this can be done in-office during a short visit.
  • How do fillers work?
    Different brands and types of fillers are made with different ingredients. Hyaluronic Acid fillers (Restylane, Juvederm, Belotero) use a hydrating gel that restores plumpness and definition in the skin. Other fillers restore the skin by boosting natural collagen production (Radiesse, Sculptra). Our experienced providers will help guide you towards the option that will best suit your aesthetic goals.
  • What is Kybella?
    Kybella® is a non-surgical procedure to remove the appearance of a double chin. Administered as a series of injections, it contains a chemical compound found naturally in our bodies called deoxycholic acid.

Clinical trials have shown that KYBELLA is a safe and effective option for contouring this common trouble spot.

Your Kybella results should be long lasting, and your jaw will remain slimmed and contoured for many years after your treatment. However, it’s important to remember that remaining fat cells can potentially increase in size. To best maintain your results, follow a healthy lifestyle and stay near a relatively stable weight.

Any pigmented areas might appear slightly darker, which is a good sign. Your heaviest peel days are 3 and 4. The first signs of peeling usually begin around the mouth area, continuing for a day or two with all peeling completed by day 7. Most patients choose to peel on days off from work, so we recommend scheduling your peel 2 days before your first day off!

  • What is Microneedling?
    Microneedling is a procedure that uses small ultra-fine needles to prick the skin carefully. These micro-injuries to the skin trigger the generation of more collagen and elastin, causing the skin to become smoother and firmer over time. New collagen and elastin production can reverse years of sun damage, improve acne scars, and enhance the overall appearance of aging skin. Microneedling is mainly used on the face and neck and treats issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, and more. While some retailers offer “DIY” microneedling alternatives, they deliver inferior results, at best. For the safest results, it’s important to have your procedure performed by a licensed medical provider.
  • Who is a good candidate for Microneedling?
    Microneedling is a suitable procedure for those in overall good health who want to fade imperfections and improve skin texture. It works well for diminishing pitted acne scars or other scars related to aging, and you’ll likely notice brighter, firmer skin after treatment! Microneedling also improves fine lines and wrinkles, rough skin texture, large pores, and even can help stretch marks!
  • Does Microneedling hurt?
    Even though it uses needles, microneedling isn’t a very painful procedure. The topical anesthetic reduces most discomfort, and the pinpricks are so small that you likely won’t notice them during the procedure!
  • Is there downtime after microneedling?
    Your skin will be red for usually 1 day after the procedure, fading to a light pink, and back to normal within 1-3 days after the treatment.
  • What is PRP?
    Often, results of microneedling can be further improved when used in combination with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). Studies have shown that PRP can expedite the healing process of tissues and reduce the appearance of pigmentation and acne scarring when used with microneedling. PRP treatment involves using your own blood as a resource to isolate the platelets with a centrifuge. Because the blood is directly from you, the risks of the body rejecting the plasma or having an allergic reaction are minimal. PRP contains proteins and several growth factors that regulate and activate cell migration and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.
