When you start to notice something that bugs you! Each muscle and face is completely different, we all age very different as well. What I may recommend to one person may be something different than the next. Your concerns are how I steer my injectable plan. The focus of injectables are slowly shifting into preventative care. Women and men of all ages are seeking treatment earlier to maintain a more youthful appearance.
> When should you start injectables?
No exercise for 24 hours post treatment. Botox takes 2 weeks to completely kick in, plan your treatment atleast 2-4 weeks in advance to allow for any small adjustments we may need to make. Bruising can also occur.
Filler, dependent on the location can cause swelling and bruising. Usually the first few days have the most swelling but will settle nicely within 2 weeks. Please plan your filler appointment 2-3 weeks ahead of any events.
> Is there any downtime with Botox or filler?
6-12 months dependent on the type of filler used and location
> How long does filler last?
3-4 months, dependent on the metabolism of the person.
> How long does Botox last?
Botox helps relax the muscles that cause wrinkling whereas dermal fillers help restore structure, foundation and youthfulness by use of hyaluronic acid.
