What to expect

Wrinkle Relaxers (Botox or Dysport)

 

What is it?

 

Wrinkle Relaxers are injections of Botox or Dysport that help to relax facial muscles, reducing fine lines and wrinkles like crow’s feet, lines between the eyebrows, and forehead lines. Botox/Dysport can also improve excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis). 

What to Expect

 
 
 

It can take between 3-7 days for the effects to kick in and up to 10 days to see maximum results. Results last on average between 3-4 months. Slight redness and small bumps may occur at the injections sites but resolve within 20 to 30 minutes. Small bruising may occur around injection sites but should resolve within a few days!

After Care

 
 

Refrain from strenuous exercising for 24 hours post treatment, (including yoga or pilates). Avoid makeup for 24 hours post treatment, and Don’t book a facial or massage within 24 hours!

Lip Enhancers

 

What is it?

 
 

Dermal Lip Fillers made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occuring substance that provides immediate plumping, smoothing and definition to lips. Results are immediate and last on average from 6-12 months.
Including Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Restylane L, Restylane Refyne, and Restylane Defyne.

What to Expect

 
 
 

Swelling is expected and typically subsides within 24-48 hours. Lips are vascular so expect some bruising. Bruising typically subsides within 5-6 days. Slight tenderness to the lips is normal and resolves within 24-48 hours. Small lumps and bumps may occur- filler is moldable which can create small bumps after injection. But no need to worry. Massage these out for a couple of days and those lumps should be gone.

After Care

 

Ice on and off for the first 24 hours to help minimize swelling and bruising. Avoid smoking for first 24 hours. Refrain from strenuous exercise for first 24 hours

Cheek & Temple Enhancers

What is it?

 
 

Dermal Facial Fillers made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that provides immediate lifting, contouring, plumping and smoothing and definition to the cheek and mid-face area. Results are immediate and last up to 2 years.
Including Juvederm Voluma and Restylane Lyft.

Sculptra, made from poly-L-Lactic acid, is used for temple and mid-face enhancement.

What to Expect

 
 
 

Slight bruising to injection sites can happen and subside within 5-7 days. Mild swelling may occur, which subsides within a few hours. Slight tenderness to injection sites usually resolve within 24 hours!

With Sculptra, results occur gradually over time as your body is stimulated to produce its own natural collagen in response to the injections. 

After Care

 

Ice on and off for the first 24 hours to help minimize swelling and bruising.  Refrain from strenuous exercise for first 24 hours. Avoid facials for up to 48 hours post treatment

Kybella Fat Reducer

 

What is it?

 
 

Kybella is an injectable form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring enzyme that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat cells, specifically designed to treat submental fullness AKA double chin. Kybella works gradually and can take on average 3-6 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart to achieve desired results.

What to Expect

 
 
 

Swelling, mild tenderness, and fullness for up to 1 week post treatment. Numbness or tingling sensation to area for up to 1 month post treatment. Small bruising may occur around injection sites. Bring a light scarf to cover swelling!

After Care

 

Apply ice to area to help with swelling and tenderness. Take Ibuprofen or Tylenol as directed to minimize discomfort. Avoid strenuous activity or exercise for at least 24 hours

Microneedling

 

What is it?

 
 

Our microneedling uses a device called the SkinPen. This pen contains very fine needles that are used to create microscopic punctures in your skin, which creates a controlled skin injury. This skin injury “re-heals” concerns like acne scarring, pore size, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles, and your skin’s texture and firmness. 

What to Expect

 
 
 

Immediately after the procedure, your body begins it’s natural healing process and collagen production is triggered in the treated areas. There is very minimal downtime with microneedling. Typically about 24 hours of slight redness post procedure. It sounds a bit scary, but most clients report no discomfort during the treatment at all. We use a topical numbing cream prior to your treatment, so you won’t feel the needles – only small vibrations!

After Care

 

There is very minimal downtime with microneedling. You’ll want to avoid makeup immediately after treatment and the following day. Refrain from strenuous exercise for first 24 hours.
