Treatment takes 45-60 minutes. This time is used to map out the area to be treated and measure amount of injection required. The injecting itself takes approximately 20-30 minutes of the alloted time. There is an additional 30 minutes required for topical anesthetic to be applied and absorbed prior to treatment.
Most of the time 1 treatment may be all that is needed. However, depending on the severity of the skin damaga, additional treatments may be used. Some patients may need up to 3 or 4 treatments if specialty fillers like Radiesse or Sculptra are used – as they need time to stimulate your own collagen to achieve the desired firming and look. Each treatment is done 6-8 weeks apart.
Generally the effects tend to last for 12-18 months, though the component of the Neuromodulators will need to be done every 3-4 months.
A topical anesthetic is applied prior to treatment to reduce discomfort. While injecting patients may feel a stinging or burning sensation.
Immediately after the treatment some swelling and bruising may occur and can increase post treatment. Should the pain increase please call or email the office immediately. Heavy physical exercise is not advised for 24 hours post treatment.
Most will begin to see results after 2 weeks. It is important to complete series of recommended treatments for desired results.
