Botox® & Filler: A Girl’s Best Friend

October 27, 2017 / / Newsletter

You don’t have to worry about looking ‘fake’ or ‘overdone’ when you have Botox® and filler with our providers.  These anti-aging treatments are the perfect way to get ready for the holidays!

Why would I consider getting treatment before the holidays?

Look well-rested and refreshed for your family photos.  Use fewer filters on your selfies.  Make your friends jealous by how young you look!

Are you bothered by frown lines or crow’s feet?  A modest amount of Botox® can smooth unwanted age lines.  What about deeper creases, such as deep smile lines?  Choose a hyaluronic acid filler like Juvederm® to provide same-day results.

Do I need to prepare before getting Botox® and filler?

Yes, to some extent.  There’s no preparation for Botox®; however, there’s a slight chance for bruising or swelling after filler.  For best results, avoid blood thinners (aspirin, Advil®, Aleve®, fish oil, etc.) 3-4 days before your appointment.

What should I expect during my visit?

Your provider will consult with you before your treatment.  Be sure to inform us if you have a budget and we’ll be mindful of it.  We’ll also tell you about available specials for maximum savings.

After your consultation, you may decide to proceed with treatment.  We’ll make you comfortable by applying ice to the injection site, and then the micro-injections will take place.  You can resume work immediately and apply make-up after your visit as desired.

When will I see results?

If you’re having Botox®, you should see your lines smooth within 7-14 days.  Results normally last from 3-4 months.

Juvederm® is so much fun because results are seen immediately and may last 6-12 months.  Walk into our office with creases and walk out refreshed!

Will I have downtime after my visit?

Downtime is rare.  If you’re trying Botox® for the first time, the most common side effects are:  slight headache, pinpoint bleeding, and tenderness at the injection.  The most common side effects for Juvederm® are:  slight swelling, pinpoint bleeding and rarely bruising.

You should avoid heavy exercise for the first 24 hours after your treatment.  Please also avoid the use of facial cleansing brushes or vigorous scrubbing over your injection sites.

Pro Tip:  Botox® and filler are fantastic options for moderate to deep creases, but they don’t do much for super-fine lines and wrinkles.  Have you tried our topical filler:  HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator?  This magic-in-a-bottle formula gives results in 15 minutes that last up to 8 hours.  Apply it under your make-up for a flawless finish.
