Some FAQs about our services

Is there a difference between Dysport and Botox?

Yes! Though they are derived from the same active ingredient, the formulation of Dysport makes it specifically useful for treating forehead wrinkles and lines, while Botox is very versatile and can be used in many places on your face.

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.

How does laser hair removal get permanent results?

Laser hair removal damages or destroys the hair follicles in your skin. If they’re only damaged, then some of the hair will return, however with multiple treatments all or virtually all of the hair follicles in an area can be destroyed, making for permanent results.
