Some FAQs about our services
Is there a difference between Dysport and Botox?
No – Dysport is a botulinum toxin that is similar to botox. It has been available in the United States for over 10 years. It addresses similar concerns as Botox by temporarily restricting muscle movement, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. In our experience Dysport kicks in faster and lasts longer.
What exactly is a “non ablative aesthetic medical laser?”
The difference between a non ablative laser and an ablative laser is that a non ablative laser doesn’t remove any of your skin. Instead, it gently warms your underlying skin cells, stimulating them to be more active and produce more collagen. Ablative lasers are significantly harsher, and are closer to dermaplaning in terms of their effect.
How long does it take to recover from microneedling?
While it only takes about 24 hours for the vast majority of your recovery, with most pain and swelling subsiding in this time frame, complete recovery takes longer. With proper skin care and good health, full recovery takes about 2 weeks, however if you have a weaker immune system, or another health issue, it can take up to 6 weeks to completely recover from microneedling treatment, though this is not typical.
Does laser hair removal get permanent results?
Sort of! Laser hair removal damages or destroys the hair follicles in your skin. If they’re only damaged, then the hair will return, however with multiple treatments most of the hair follicles in an area can be destroyed, making for a very long term or permanent reduction in hair, but not a permanent removal of hair.
