FAQs About Dermal Filler & Botox

  •  We numb all of our patients prior to beginning the treatment to keep pain minimal. All filler injections contain Lidocaine, which is a numbing medication.

Patients should expect to see micro lesions a few days after treatment and slight redness that may last for up to 1 week, if any, depending on treatment parameters & the patient’s own individual skin tolerance or sensitivity. It is strongly suggested to keep the area/s treated clean until the skin has had enough time to “heal”.

  • You should cleanly shave within 24 hours prior to your appointment. Longer, thinner hairs are more likely to be in the laser’s path, so shaving before your appointment will help minimize the risk of burns and reduce the amount of time the laser is in contact with your skin. We do not shave onsite during your appointment because shaving too soon before laser hair removal can cause burns and increase sensitivity/discomfort to the laser.

  • It's best to avoid the direct sun 14 days leading up to your laser treatment and after. Exposure to the sun's UV rays cause pigment changes to skin that may not be treatable.

Skin may be red, swollen, and tender. Take the extra effort to protect your investment in the treatment and your skin. Your results will thank you!

During this process, exfoliating the skin can help hairs shed faster, or they will just fall out on their own. Shedding is a good sign that the treatments are working!
