Before undergoing aesthetic skin care treatment, it’s understandable that patients may have some questions or concerns. For added convenience, our team has chosen to compile some of the most common FAQs we receive and their answers below in one location. If you’ve already read through the page and haven’t found the information you’re looking for, that’s no problem either — please contact our Ocala, FL location so that we can discuss it directly.
Will my results look unnatural?
Not at all. Elizabeth understands her clients’ sensitivity and worry regarding overly “plastic” looks very well — that’s why her care approach is based around conservative, pinpointed treatment that only addresses the requested areas of the face. With 12 years of experience and counting, she can be counted on wholeheartedly for subtly distinct improvements that will help your true personality and light shine through.
What is the difference between BOTOX® and JUVÉDERM®?
BOTOX® features the injection of safe neurotoxins that reduce the effects of wrinkles by inhibiting unnecessary muscle contractions throughout the face. On the other hand, JUVÉDERM® actually fills certain areas of the face with hyaluronic acid to restore lost volume, smoothing out the skin. Both options are highly effective — choosing between them is just a matter of determining each patient’s individual needs and goals for their own treatment plan.
What causes submental fullness/double chin in the first place?
Both men and women can experience submental fullness, and it may happen for a number of different reasons over time. Surgery, weight gain, and even simple, unavoidable aging may lead to its gradual development over time, and what’s worse is that some cases become essentially permanent, even if the patient is diligently working out and eating right.
Will BOTOX® and JUVÉDERM® treatment hurt?
It is true that clients may experience some minor discomfort during the treatment process, but we’ll provide numbing to help you feel genuinely at ease throughout the appointment. Better yet, there is virtually NO downtime associated with either service — you’ll be able to return to your regular routine easily.
How long can I expect the results of BOTOX® and JUVÉDERM® to last?
Our clients can expect to enjoy their improvements from BOTOX® treatment for three to four months on average before requiring additional treatment. Alternatively, JUVÉDERM® can keep skin smoother and smoother for six months to a year.
What are my payment options at Lift Facial Aesthetics?
