Why experience matters with injectables
We offer BOTOX®, Dypsort and Juveau for cosmetic and indicated medical uses. The way neurotoxins work is that very small amounts are injected into the area being treated. It works by blocking nerves and relaxing the muscle activity in a specific area. The repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, and expressing, over the years contribute to the appearance of frown lines, crow’s feet and other wrinkles. These can often be improved with the use of neurotoxin injectables.
Any aesthetic treatment requires the supervision of an experienced medical provider. While there are injectable services available at salons and spas, the technicians may not have the medical background and knowledge to ensure your safety.
This inexperience can lead to complications. For instance, injecting BOTOX into the wrong muscles or administering too much can leave you with nerve damage. These issues can have long-term effects on your physical health and your appearance. An unskilled provider can also cause bruising, bleeding, and permanent skin damage that leaves scars and increases your risk for infection.
What you can expect from our injectable services
Before we recommend BOTOX or any injectable as part of your treatment plan, we complete a comprehensive skin evaluation and review your medical history. This helps us identify underlying health issues like allergies that can negatively affect your injectable treatment.
During your treatment, we follow a custom-made plan that we design specifically to meet your needs. This ensures you receive the right dosage of Botox or dermal fillers in the right location, so your results look and feel natural. We can also customize a plan for maintenance injections to help you retain your results in the long term.
Our team are experts in giving you a refreshed look.
