What happens durng my initial consultation?
During your consultation we will discuss your desired goals and expectations, review your medical history and current health, and make an assessment to which treatments are right for you. This is a good time to ask specific questions about the procedure or treatments you are interested in. We will then create a treatment plan that is in alignment with your desired goals.
When should I arrive?
What is your cancellation policy?
What if I am late for my appointment?
What should I do before and after my appointment?
-Drink lots of water a few days prior to your appointment.
-Take arnica tablets two days before and after treatment; you can find these at most health food stores.
-Avoid alcohol a day or two before your treatment… sorry!
It’s best to avoid Aspirin, Ibuprofen, fish oil, and Vitamin E for 10-14 days prior to treatment.
What should I do before and after laser hair removal?
- Please shave the entire area you desire treated the day before your planned treatment.
- Use a broad spectrum SPF 30 (or greater) sunblock before AND after your treatments. No natural or artificial tanning (which includes tanning beds and spray tans) anytime within 2-3 weeks before your session.
- Avoid exfoliating agents like Retin-A, alpha or beta hydroxy acids, toners or any irritating creams for one week prior.
- Do not apply any perfumes, deodorant or make-up to the desired area the day of your treatment.
- No deodorant for 24 to 48 hours if underarm was treated.
- Immediately after your treatment there likely will be some slight redness, swelling around the hair follicles and mild discomfort similar to a sunburn. Cool packs may be applied.
- Do not rub, or pick the treated area. Do not use any loofahs or abrasive scrubs for at least 5 days.
- Avoid strenuous sports activities or hot water/ saunas/ jacuzzi for 3 days.
- Continue to use sunblock for the duration of your treatments.
What should I do after getting botox?
- Do NOT massage the area after being treated.
- Avoid laying down for 2 hours after being treated.
- Avoid flying for 2 hours after being treated.
- You may resume normal activities immediately.
- Avoid sweating and heavy exercise for the first 24 hours.
- The only people that should not have Botox® treatments are those known to be allergic, persons with neurological diseases and pregnant women.
- Botox® can take anywhere from 2 to 14 days to have this effect after injection.
- Botox® cannot improve wrinkles not caused by muscle contractions.
What should I do after getting fillers?
- Avoid touching the treated area within the following 6 hours. After that, a light make-up can be applied and the area can be mildly washed with soap and water.
- Until the initial swelling and redness have resolved, do not expose the treated area to intense heat or extreme cold.
- Immediately after treatment, there may be slight redness, swelling, tenderness and itching sensation at the treated area. This is a normal result of the injection. The inconvenience is temporary and generally disappears in a day or two. If the inconvenience continues or if the reactions occur, please contact us.
- The initial swelling after lip treatment may last longer, up to two weeks, and the lips can look somewhat uneven. This means that the result directly after the treatment should not be looked upon as the final result.
- If you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, there is a risk that the needle could contribute to another cold sores eruption.
Since Fillers are a natural substance which dissolves over time, the correction does not last forever. Most people choose to be treated again within a year of the original treatment.
