Botox is a cosmetic treatment designed to smooth crows feet and frown lines in adults. Botox works by treating the muscles that contract when a person frowns, showing lines and wrinkles. It is a common thought that when using Botox patients lose the ability to show facial expressions, this should not happen when you are treated by a licensed and trained cosmetic injector like our experts at FacEnvy RX.
What is the Botox treatment like?
The first step is to have a free consultation with our experienced cosmetic injector. The injector will determine if the patient is a candidate for Botox and will help you decide which product is right for you. The actual treatment lasts about 10-15 minutes. There are some restrictions post treatment that will need to be followed to optimize the outcome of Botox. Some patients might experience mild bruising in the Botox-treated areas. Patients may also need areas to be “touched up” after 2 weeks.
How long does Botox last?
Results usually take 48 hours to start appearing and they can last up to four months. Full results will show in 14 days. Results vary on each patient’s reaction to Botox or alternative Botox and on how closely aftercare instructions are followed. For first time clients, it is always best to schedule a 14 day follow up appointment to discuss any concerns or for the need of an additional few units until your “formula” is perfected. Everybody is unique and results will vary between patients. As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to re-appear and will need to be re-treated. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with repeat treatments because the muscles are being trained to relax. Training the muscles is important, so it is always best to receive Botox on a regular schedule before all of the effects of the previous treatment wears off. Deep resting creases and sleep lines in the skin can only be softened and not total eliminated; this is why proper maintenance is crucial.
What are the side effects?
Temporary bruising is the most common side effect. There is also a risk of headaches but this, as well, is transient in nature and usually resolves within 2-3 days. A small percentage of patients may develop eyelid drooping or a dropping of the brow which are both temporary and usually resolve within weeks. To lessen any risks, an upright position should be maintained for 4 hours following the treatments and you should refrain from exercise until the following day. Avoid any irritating products applied directly to the injection sites.
Dermal fillers have proven anti-aging results without resorting to surgery. They are injected into areas of the face that have lost volume and appear sunken or sagged. They can plump up lips, provide contouring to the cheeks and jaw, and minimize wrinkles and fine lines.
There are several types of dermal fillers on the market that add volume to the face and smooth it out. Facial fillers last approximately 1-2 years depending on which product is used. Some fillers can stimulate collagen growth.
Dermal fillers are NOT recommended for patients who have:
Current infections, uncontrolled diabetes,
blood-clotting problems, Lupus, or other connective tissue disorders.
What is B12? Also known as Cobalamin. B12 is a water soluble vitamin, meaning whatever is not absorbed by the body will be excreted in urine. B12 vitamins play a role in the metabolism of every cell in the human body. B vitamins are also essential in DNA synthesis, developing of healthy red blood cells, and playing an important role in the functioning of our nervous system.
Every body is different and B12 requirements may vary person to person. So who can benefit from B12 therapy? Everyone! Vegan diet, pregnancy, and lactating women, anemic patients, people on antibiotics and heartburn medications, are all known to have B12 deficiency.
Why intramuscular vs. oral intake?
Absorption is different in the different ways that you take medications and vitamins. When given orally, the vitamins have to go through the GI Track and that can decrease the amount of vitamin that is absorbed into the body. When B12 is given intramuscular, it skips over the GI Track and the body is able to absorb 100% of what it needs.
Ingredients in B12: B vitamins include thiamine, riboflavin, niacin/niacinamide, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, folic acid, and pantothenic acid. Some brands of B vitamins also contain ingredients such as vitamin C, vitamin E, biotin, or zinc.
Benefits of B12: Increased energy, immunity booster, weight loss, reduced brain fog, improvement in digestion, skin, hair, and nails, improvement in mood, increased metabolism, better sleep and more!
Lipotropic (MIC) injections: “Skinny Shot”
What is MIC? MIC stands for methionine, inositol and choline – the primary compounds in the injection. Methionine, inositol and choline are known as lipotropic substances that allegedly help you burn fat while maintaining proper and peak liver function.
For weight management, L- Methionine helps the body process and eliminate fat. It is a required amino acid in the production of cysteine and taurine, which help the body eliminate toxins. Inositol, when used in combination with other B complex vitamins, helps the liver break down fats in the body, and when used in combination with other compounds in a MIC injection, especially choline, inositol forms lecithin which is known to aid in the metabolism of fat. Choline is essential for fat metabolism, it functions as a methyl donor and it assists detoxification reactions in the liver.
When combined with healthy eating and exercise, these can help boost weight loss, increase metabolism and energy.
Injections can be done as much as twice a week for 3 months or can also be done less frequently.
Your service provider will consult with you prior to the service to find out your goals and preferences, and can make recommendations if appropriate. She or he will let you know what to expect, and address any special needs or concerns.
We offer complimentary consultations, and can make recommendations to fit your wants and needs. Whether you are looking for a skin care product line to use at home, or have specific needs for a salon or spa treatment, we are always available to answer your questions.
We recommend clients have facials once a month, because nothing you do at home can replace professional attention for your skin. Also, your skin is doing different things depending on the season and depending on your lifestyle, so having a monthly check-in with your esthetician ensures you are getting the best treatment. Depending on your skin type and current issues, your esthetician can cater your facial to best suit you. Much like a massage, facials should be thought of as skin maintenance in addition to your daily skin care routine.
One of the biggest benefits of a facial is our ability to deep clean your skin. When done by a professional, a facial and extractions can remove debris and dirt residing in your pores. Facials often include an element of exfoliation as well, which can help reveal brighter, more radiant-looking skin. If you haven’t been able to curb the look of your dull skin, a facial may be calling your name. A facial can even be considered an essential part to maintaining the healthy look and feel of your skin.
Another benefit of facials has to do with relaxation. Your esthetician will use a steam machine to help dislodge pore impurities, massage your face, shoulders and arms to help you de-stress. Since feeling stressed can impact the look of your skin, taking an hour out of your hectic schedule every few months for a facial is just another way you can unwind and pamper yourself.
Your appointments are very important us and we always look forward to seeing you. We hold your appointments just for you and ask that if you must cancel or reschedule any appointment, you please provide us with 48-hour notice. This way, our team of professionals can adjust their schedules accordingly and be able to accommodate clients on our waiting list. Please understand that when you forget or cancel your appointment without giving notice, we miss the opportunity to fill that time slot. Thus, our clients on our waiting list will miss the opportunity to receive services from us. Our appointments are confirmed 48 hours in advance because we know how easy it is to forget an appointment you booked months ago.
Since the services are reserved for you personally, a cancellation fee will apply of:
50% for cancellations made less than 24 hours in advance
100% charge for no-show no-calls
We do, of course, understand that unavoidable issues come up and will do our best to work with you in case of an emergency, etc. However, if last minute cancellations or ‘no shows’ become a habit, we want to make you aware that having 3 or more no-show appointments, which include last minute cancellations, will result in payment in advance to guarantee any future appointments.
The cancellation policy allows us the time to inform our standby guests of any availability, as well as keeping our schedules filled, thus better serving everyone.
Arrival: Our scheduling is designed to permit the correct time needed to complete your services. Please help us by being on time so that we may complete your service as scheduled. If you are more than 15 minutes late it may be necessary to reschedule your appointment. Spa appointments are asked to arrive 15 minutes before their scheduled appointment to have time to fill out any paperwork, change and relax in our lounge with a hot neck wrap and drink.
We accept credit cards, cash, check and Spa Finder but our gratuity is cash or check only. We do have an ATM on site for your convenience.
Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment so you may have time to fill out any required paperwork, get changed and relax in our lounge with a hot neck wrap and a drink. Your therapist will review the forms with you and may ask you general questions to establish what areas you would like worked on or if there are any conditions needing to be addressed to make sure your massage is beneficial and enjoyable. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible when coming to receive a treatment from one of our professional massage therapists so please feel free to ask any questions you may have.
Your massage session is in a tranquil, private room. Your therapist will leave the room to allow you to disrobe to your comfort level and lay down on the table under the top sheet. During your session, your therapist will only uncover the area of your body being worked on. It’s all about you. Communication is key to receiving the most effective treatment for achieving your relaxation and wellness goals. You can receive either a customized full-body massage for general relaxation or stress reduction, or a treatment focusing on specific parts of your body. It’s a good idea to experience different types of massage to see what appeals most to you, particularly if your goal is relaxation and stress reduction. This is another important aspect to discuss with your massage therapist. After a few sessions, you’ll have a better sense of what you like, what you don’t, and you’ll be more comfortable to communicate that with your massage therapist.
