Will it hurt?
For the most part the aesthetic procedures offered at Embody medical Aesthetics are considered to be non-invasive and relatively painless. Appropriate local anesthetics are used when necessary with treatments like dermal fillers, PDO threading, collagen stimulating injectables and Procell treatments. It is rare that patients need pain relief for Dysport and Botox injections, but the option is available if necessary.
What is the downtime?
The official downtime varies by treatment. However, all procedures at Embody Medical Aesthetics are considered to have very little to no downtime. After Dysport injections you can come at lunchtime and go straight back to work. With more extensive treatments of fillers, collagen stimulators or threads, you will have some initial swelling, but will look appropriate enough to be in public after your treatment.
How long do results last?
- Dysport and other Neuromodulator injections last 3-4 months.
- Dermal Fillers last 6-12 months with appropriate treatment amount
- Collagen Stimulators last 1-2 years with appropriate treatment amount
- PDO threads last 6-15 months with appropriate amount of threads placed and a light touch up.
Something that must be remembered is that as we treat our faces and bodies with aesthetic procedures, we are also continuing to age. It is always a good idea to maintain your results and investment with light touch ups along the way, rather than start over.
What should I expect to get started on my aesthetic journey?
New patients to Embody Medical Aesthetics are required to have a consultation. During that consultation we decide the right treatment for you depending on your specific anatomy, aesthetic goals, timeline and budget. If the treatment is quick like Dysport, we can likely treat you the same day as the consultation. For all other procedures a second appointment will be made. We will also schedule follow ups for all treatment appointment, and Dana will be checking in with you frequently along the way to ensure you are not experiencing adverse events and are happy with your results.
