What is the downtime after my procedure?
Downtime will vary based on the treatment you and the doctor decide is best for you. For example, with Botox injections, there is typically no downtime – but Laser recovery and downtime varies based on the specific treatment performed. Ablative laser often requires one to two weeks, where as a non-ablative laser treatment is far less invasive with little-to-no downtime. The best way to know for sure is to schedule a consultation with the doctor to discuss your options!

How many treatments will I need to achieve my goal and how long until I see the results?
This varies based on your personal preferences and the treatment you decide to go forward with. With Botox and Fillers, minimal treatment is needed to see results and these effects typically last about three to four months. Laser treatments may require only one treatment or require a ‘treatment regimen’ every four to six weeks for optimal results. The number of treatments will vary based on your personal needs. This is why it is vitally important to visit a medical practice with experts who can help select the appropriate treatment plan for you.
