FAQ With Amanda

FREQUENTLY ASKED Questions

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE MOST POPULAR SERVICES YOU OFFER?
Botox/Dysport, lip filler, Morpheus8 (radio frequency skin tightening), signature sculpting technique for filler, and of course medical grade skincare!
WHAT COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS EXIST SURROUNDING ANTI-AGING PRODUCTS?
A common misinterpretation is that anti-aging products such as Botox and dermal fillers are miracle drugs. They are not, but, in the hands of a skilled provider, these products can help to reverse the signs of aging, reduce fine lines and forehead wrinkles, and provide lifting and hydrating effects. Another misbelief is Botox leaves patients looking expressionless and “frozen.” I pride myself in administering injections conservatively and treat patients with the philosophy in mind that more can be added, but not subtracted.
WHO SHOULD CONSIDER BOTOX INJECTIONS?
Anyone who is bothered by forehead lines, crow’s feet, and lines between their brows (the 11 sign, or furrow between the brows) may want to consider Botox treatment. Botox also provides a “lifting effect” for those who feel as though gravity has taken over, or that their eyebrows have fallen over the years. Also, if patients feel as though they “look tired”, Botox injections can help with refreshing the face. Patients in their mid 20s and early 30s often utilize Botox treatment as preventative strategy before wrinkles form, as well as for cosmetic purposes.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF NON-SURGICAL PROCEDURES?
Before jumping right into surgical procedures i.e. facelift, liposuction, etc., I highly recommend considering non-surgical procedures first. These treatments improve fine lines and forehead wrinkles and provide lifting and hydrating effects. Plus, there is no postoperative recovery required; you can leave the office after you’ve received your treatment and carry on with your daily routine!
HOW LONG DO THE EFFECTS OF THE PROCEDURES LAST?
Botox Cosmetic lasts between two to four months on-label. Dermal fillers such as Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus XC can last anywhere from six to 12 months, while Juvéderm Volbella XC, used for peri-oral rejuvenation, lasts up to one year. The signature sculpting technique will last two years plus.
DO YOU OFFER ANY SEASONAL DEALS/PRODUCTS?

HOW HAS THE COSMETIC FIELD CHANGED OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS?
The cosmetic world continues to evolve rapidly and is on track for continued projected growth, mainly due to the mega-impact that social media has on the world! Countless influencers including celebrities, beauty bloggers, and notable physicians advertise cosmetic procedures, make-up, skincare, etc. on their social media pages, which has greatly expanded the market for aesthetics.
