what to know?
Botox & Dysport
Our nurse or physician will start every appointment by taking 'before' photos of the area/s being treated. You and your practitioner will then discuss the concerns or enhancements you’d like. They will explain the treatment, side effects and contraindications prior to the treatment. The treatment can be done the same day, after your consultation, if time provides. The actual treatment time is anywhere from 15-60 minutes depending on your desired areas to be treated. The appointment will end with after care education and 'after' photos for your profile. A follow up phone call will be made 3 days after your appointment to ensure you are satisfied with your results. We believe in 100% patient satisfaction and will do whatever it takes to ensure that you leave happy
