What is the difference between Botox and Filler?

Botox (Botulinumtoxin) is a toxin that inhibits the movement in certain facial muscles in order to avoid creasing and wrinkling caused by repetitive facial expressions. Filler is a gel like hyaluronic-acid substance which is used to fill in unwanted creases or add volume in areas that need more plumping.

Do Vitamin IVs really work?

Yes! The vitamins, minerals and electrolytes in the Vitamin Iv Drips are infused directly into your blood stream, bypassing the digestive system which allows for optimal absorption and immediate effects.

How often do I have to get these treatments?

Botox: After receiving your first treatment, the earliest you can come back is 3 months but a good rule of thumb is to wait until you have full movement back. Waiting less than 3months between botox treatments can result in resistance, causing your treatment to be less effective.

Filler: Once or twice a year per area! Depending on the area and what you are looking to achieve, you choose when you want more…just no sooner than 4 months in between treatments. 

PRP: Once a month for3 months and once every 3 months for maintenance. Minimum 3 sessions to notice a difference.

What is PRP and what does it do?

PRP (Platelet-rich-plasma) is a treatment that involves drawing your blood which is then processed to separate the platelets, that are rich in healing and growth factors. When injected into the skin or scalp, PRP stimulates the production of collagen, improves blood flow, and produces a more youthful, radiant complexion or thicker, healthier hair. 

What is the pain level like?

Pain level is subjective, meaning every client has a different pain tolerance. Depending on the treatment, there's a different means of minimizing pain. Nurse Andra aims to provide the most comfortable experience.

Does fat dissolving work and what areas can I target?

Fat dissolving is a treatment that involves injecting stubborn fat with a solution which breaks down fat cells. A minimum of 3 sessions, 5-6 weeks apart are required to see results.This treatment can only be done under the chin.
