Many of our first-time patients have questions before starting a beauty regime at Aesthetica. We have put together a list of frequently asked questions. If you have specific questions you’d like answered, please feel free to contact us or schedule a complimentary consultation with our physician.
Most individuals can expect treatments to last 3-4 months.
At Aesthetica, we use smaller gauge needles that are generally well tolerated. We also offer topical creams and cooling devices that can be applied before hand, which helps numb the skin prior to the injections.
We only use the appropriate amount of units for each patient in order for them to feel and look her best. While individual results may vary, our patients have not reported any of these effects.
Like any procedure, there are always risks and benefits. Some side effects may include bruising, headaches, pain, ptosis (drooping of the eyelid), over treatment of certain areas which can cause a "Spock" eyebrow appearance, itching, rash, red, itchy welts, wheezing, asthma symptoms, dizziness or feeling faint. A full list of risks and precautions can be reviewed at www.botox.com
There is no particular age to start facial treatments as each person shows signs of aging differently. All of our treatments are tailor made to the individual, and will target specific problem areas. However, the earlier fine lines, wrinkles, and crows feet are addressed the less amount of units will then be required in subsequent visits. There is a preventive benefit of starting Botox® treatments earlier versus later. Our patients have ranged from mid-to-late 20's through their 70's. Our consultations are complimentary and candidacy for injections will be determined at that time.
Patients can expect a mosquito bite appearance at the injection site(s) up to one day after treatment. While individual results may vary, patients begin to see results as soon as 24 - 48hrs after treatment. The full effects are seen usually around 2 weeks after treatment.
A treatment plan will be customized by individual. However, typically, patients should book a consultation every season to see if they are ready for another treatment.
