How long is the recovery time after treatment?

Depending whether you received Botox/Dyport treatments or dermal filler treatments.

Filler

How long do lip injections last?

You can usually expect anywhere from six months to three years, on average. Some may need to get their fillers topped off after six months, and others may be fine for longer.

How many syringes do you need for lips?

One syringe distributed appropriately is usually the right amount for most people to start with because you get allover enhancement while still maintaining a natural appearance. Gradual plumping is key!

What is Hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a gel that is injected into the skin to add volume to the lips, restore volume, and fill in wrinkles or folds. The syringe contains hyaluronic acid almost identical to that naturally found in the body. It is completely biologically degradable.

How does it work?

A small amount is injected directly into the skin to add volume. Hyaluronic Acid is naturally integrated into the tissue and allows for the free passage of important nutritive elements like oxygen and hormones. The product will also bind water, which adds to the filling effect.

What are fillers used for?

Wrinkles and sagginess can be corrected using fillers to replenish the volume loss that comes with age. The most common areas are the cheeks, the nasolabial folds (from the wing of the nose to the angle of the mouth) and the lips, but many other sites may also be treated to achieve desired effect. The contours of the lips can be enhanced to the desired level by accentuating the vermillion border and giving the lips more volume. 

Do the injections hurt?

Pain is very individualized and dependent on one’s tolerance to pain. We use a freezing ingredient so that discomfort is minimal. 

Mirconeedling

What Are the Benefits of Microneedling?

Some of the known benefits of known microneedling are that it greatly improves topical cream effectiveness and penetration and stimulates blood circulation and collagen production; the needles are non-allergenic; it is cost-effective relative to other surfacing procedures; it works on all skin types; and it can treat the scalp, face, and body, including skin around the eyes, mouth, and neck.

Does Microneedling hurt?

Microneedling may feel a bit strange but it is not meant to be a painful treatment. It can be said to feel like a light sunburn. Prior to the treatment, numbing cream can be applied to minimize pain that is felt during the procedure.

Does it help with deep scars?

Yes! However, the deeper and older the scar, the more sessions is can take to see results.

How long should I wait before treatments?

4-6 weeks. This gives the skin a chance to breathe and settle down, and it also gives you a chance to start seeing results.
