  • What is BOTOX?
    In small doses, Botox can reduce skin wrinkles. It's a drug that weakens or paralyzes muscle that cause wrinkles. BOTOX is also used to treat conditions such as neck spasms, excessive sweating, an overactive bladder, lazy eye and may also help prevent chronic migraines.
  • How does BOTOX work
    BOTOX injections relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles by stoping contractions.
  • When do I start BOTOX?
    It's never too early or too late to start BOTOX treatment. Many people in their 20s are starting to use BOTOX as a preventative measure as soon as they notice wrinkles.
  • Will BOTOX hurt?
    BOTOX injections are considered painless, however some patients say they experience mild discomfort during injections.
  • Side effects from BOTOX?
    Bruising, Swelling, Redness, or Tenderness around the treatment are is common. All of these side effects will disappear within a week.
  • Downtime after BOTOX?
    You can directly return to your routine after your BOTOX appointment. There is not downtime after BOTOX treatment.
  • What to expect at a consultation?
    How much for lip filler? How much do you charge for a unit? Can I only treat just this area? While these are all valid questions and how most conversations in my DM’s start, just know this is why I ALWAYS encourage a consultation. There is no one size fits all answer to these questions, and let me explain why. The initial consultation sets the tone for your experience, and the degree of trust between you and the injector. During a consultation, we review fundamental data such as comprehensive medical history, past treatments, photo analysis and aesthetic goals. At the same time, as a medical professional, I am observing your natural facial movements, learning to understand the foundation we can create to optimize results towards any concerns you may have. It may be a vulnerable position for some. Therefore communication, support, and empowering you with education towards each procedure are essential in establishing our relationship and creating a positive impact of these medical procedures. I believe this is the direction I like for us both to have in achieving the best results. Should WE BOTH choose to move forward, what you can expect from me as a nurse professional is guidance through your treatment choices, a supportive environment, and the confidence of leaving my chair with having made the best decision possible.
