This depends on the person and their facial assessment. The average amount of Botox for a full treatment of moderate to severe lines of the forehead, glabellar region (between the brows), and crows feet (smile lines around eyes) is around 60 units. However, this is not always the case and you should schedule a consultation to determine your customized Botox plan & dose!
Absolutely! Although a full facial assessment will be needed, and suggestions may be made based on professional opinion. Ultimately, you and Kim will agree on a customized plan of treatment that makes YOU happy!
• Come to appointment with a clean face!
• Be prepared to remain upright for 4-6 hours after treatment.
• No vigorous exercise on day of treatment.
• Avoid blood thinning medications (with doctor’s consent) for 1-2 weeks prior if possible.
• Avoid alcohol 1-2 days before/after injection to reduce risk of bruising and swelling.
***Botox injections are not likely to bleed or bruise, but there is always a small risk as with any needle injection.
Yes, there can be. Although Botox typically has minimal if any side effects. Pain, redness, & swelling at the injection site are the most common side effects. There have been very rare reports of headache following Botox treatment, but this typically resolves rather quickly.
***Kim uses Comfortox needles, which are specifically designed for neurotoxin injections to reduce pain!
Yes, there can be. The side effects of dermal filler include the possibility of bruising, bleeding, swelling, and tenderness at the injection site. These are temporary and completely normal. Side effects can last up to 2 weeks, however most resolve well before then. The application of ice can ease the discomfort and swelling immediately following your treatment.
***A rare side effect could include infection at the site, however Kim uses aseptic technique with each procedure to prevent this!
To prepare and decrease the severity of bruising/bleeding:
• Avoid blood thinning medications (with a doctor’s consent) and herbal supplements 1-2 weeks prior to injections (Advil, Motrin, Ibuprofen, Aspirin, Vitamin E, Fish Oil, CoQ10, Ginkgo, St. John’s Wort, Omega, Garlic).
• Avoid alcohol 1-2 days prior to injections and 24 hours after injections.
• You can opt to take Arnica Montana 24 hours prior to injection to reduce bruising/swelling.
• Come to your appointment with a clean face (NO MAKEUP!) to minimize risk of infection.
• Avoid any dental work and vaccines for two weeks prior/post treatment.
Post care includes:
o No exercise or vigorous activity for 2-3 days after treatment, or until the swelling fully subsides
o Do not massage or manipulate the treatment area for at least 3 days
o Try not to sleep directly on area filler was placed for 2-3 days
No. Botox and dermal filler treatments have NOT been tested during pregnancy or breastfeeding, therefore Kim will not treat during pregnancy, breastfeeding, or if you are trying to become pregnant.
***YOUR SAFETY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING!
The cost of filler is determined by level of correction needed to achieve desired results. One syringe can range from $650-$800+ depending on the type of filler used. If overall facial rejuvenation is needed, a good rule of thumb is “one syringe per decade of life” – for example, a 45-year-old would likely need 4 syringes in order to achieve overall rejuvenation. However, while this is a good indicator, it is not always accurate. The Aesthetic Haus offers dermal filler packages based on individual needs.
o Contour/Midface Packages-$1600 & up
o Lower Face/Jawline Rejuvenation-$1600 & up
o Full Face Refresh-$2000 & up
