FAQ

Can I be treated while pregnant?

Yes. Osteopathic treatment throughout the course of pregnancy can assist in helping your body adjust to and cope with the extensive physical changes taking place. Gentle articulation and massage through the spine and pelvis can relieve aches and strains to provide a more comfortable pregnancy and can result in an easier delivery.

Is skin tightening painful?

No the treatment should not be painful. You may experience some light tingling and heat sensation during the procedure.

Who is NOT suitable for BOTOX?

Botulinum toxin should not be used in pregnant or lactating women, as well as people who have had a previous allergic reaction to the drug or any of its ingredients. If you were allergic to Dysport, then there is a high chance of being allergic to BOTOX as well because of how similar these drugs are with each other.

Check with your doctor regarding the medications you're currently taking as well. Certain products may interfere with BOTOX results and, if these medications can't be temporarily halted, the procedure may not be right for you.

Most of us want to be as prepared as possible for any type of procedure — even one as routine and speedy as a BOTOX injection. Learning about the subject beforehand makes it easier to dismiss fears and ensure that you're moving forward with the best plan of action for your situation.

There are a few physical attributes that can make for a non-ideal BOTOX candidate. Treatment isn't recommended for people with thick facial skin, drooping eyelids and eyelid droop (a condition called ptosis), weakness in the muscles to be injected, extremely deep scars on the face, facial asymmetry and the presence of skin disorders or conditions in the areas where BOTOX is to be targeted. If you have a pre-existing medical condition, like Lambert-Eaton syndrome, BOTOX may not be suitable for you.

Patients that choose to undergo a BOTOX treatment must also be prepared to experience a few side effects. If the idea of mild to moderate inflammation, swelling or minor procedural pain cause you to doubt your plans for treatment then it may be worthwhile to consider whether these temporary, negative aspects of BOTOX outweigh the benefits it can have for your appearance.

Will laser therapy work on my face veins?

Although there is no way to tell for sure which veins will respond, a full medical history prior to the treatment will help determine what you should expect. Prior surgery or treatment on your veins could affect the treatment outcome. In some cases, further testing may be recommended to determine if there are underlying venous problems.
