FAQs

 

What is filler ?

Most fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in your body. Hyaluronic acid is a molecule that holds 1000 times its weight in water. The largest amounts of HA,  are found in your skin and creates plumping as well as softening the depth of expression lines. We use filler to add volume in the lips, create the illusion of bone structure in the jaw and cheeks, to fill the deep lines that result from aging, to reduce the bags under the eyes, to mention a few. Fillers come in different consistencies or thicknesses for different uses and the doctor determines which one will give you the results wanted.

What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is exfoliation of the skin with a surgical sterile scalpel. It removes the upper dead layer of skin and vellus hair (aka peach fuzz). Dermaplaning is great for a beautiful natural glow or to enable products to penetrate deeper into the skin as well as a smoother application of makeup.

How do I get rid of acne?

This is the million dollar question. Acne is different in everyone and in order to get rid of it , we really have to create a treatment plan that is right for your skin type and the type of acne you have. Generally we recommend a good cleansing with extractions and the Salt facial. The Salt Facial uses positive pressure to expel medical grade sea salt which exfoliates  the skin by removing the dead layer of skin. Salt also has natural antimicrobial properties which can prevent acne breakouts and treat inflamed cystic acne as it has anti inflammatory properties which helps all types of acne. The second step of the Salt Facial, uses ultrasound technology, which allows products that we apply during the facial to penetrate three times deeper compared to applying them topically and you get more results from any product. The third and last step is LED light therapy. Different wavelengths of light are used to stop future breakouts, reduce redness such as rosacea and improve the health of your skin. The treatments you do in the office account for 30% of any skin treatment and the remaining 70% comes from the products you use at home. A strict skin care regimen is essential for acneic patients. It is best to use medical grade products, not found in pharmacies because they contain more active ingredients and will give you better and long lasting results.

Does getting your lips with fillers hurt?

Getting lip filler is not painless but it should not be intolerable either. When you get lip fillers, an anesthetic numbing cream should be applied and left on the lips for 30-45 min to ensure you are comfortable. Any less time for numbing is useless as local anesthetics take that much time to penetrate the skin. You should be very comfortable during your treatment and the doctor uses different techniques and needles to help reduce the discomfort. You should not let the thought of extreme pain from getting your lips done because if done correctly, you can have a very pleasant experience to get the beautiful you have been wanting. Significant bruising and swelling after lip filler is very common but with application of ice immediately following the treatment, you can reduce the chances of these effects being severe. You have to have a little bit of patience to allow for complete healing, bruising to disappear and swelling to go down and finally see lips shaped and filled so you can achieve the lips of your dreams.
