(1) Initial Consultation & Treatment
Initial consultations and treatments take about 30 minutes to complete. The best part is it can be done on a lunch hour! We start every consultation off by addressing your individual needs and concerns. Each individual is different, and we strive to give the most natural looking results to each patient. Undetected Botox is the best Botox!
If there are no contraindications, we can usually treat same day. Once you are comfortable and confident that all your questions have been answered we proceed forward with treatment. The discomfort is minimal as we use a very thin needle, making this procedure virtually painless. Following your procedure, you may notice small circles of swelling where the Botox was placed. No need to to worry – this is normal usually dissipates within 10-15 minutes. Tenderness and swelling may continue for several days but is very uncommon. Full results will be noticeable within 4-7 days and last an average of 3-4 months.

Makeup can be used to cover the area the following day. Arnica and Bromelain can be used to help reduce the time frame that the bruise is visible.
