What To Expect at A Neurotox Appointment

Wondering what to expect at your next neurotox appointment?

First, we will discuss which product you want to use factoring in price, look/feel, onset time, etc. Next, we will take before pictures to help track your progress. Then, we will go over the consent and have you sign it. Finally, I’ll take a look at your movement to help determine how many units are needed per spot. Then we ice, and inject!

The biggest thing to remember is that just because a number of units worked for you one time does not mean that same number will work again. Multiple studies have been done showing that dose = duration, meaning the higher dose we use, the longer the product will last. Results can last anywhere from 3-5 months.

Knowing the average number of units used per treatment site can help give you an idea of pricing beforehand, but just know that everyone is different and these numbers are not hard and fast rules. Here’s a few averages for the most common areas: “11s” need anywhere from 10-30 units, the forehead needs 10-30 units, and crow’s feet need 4-15 units per side. Remember that Dysport is dosed a little differently than Botox and Jeuveau, but it roughly comes out to 2-3x the number of Botox units.

Introducing Qwo- a new injectable specifically made to treat stubborn cellulite!

Did you know that 9 out of 10 women struggle with stubborn cellulite? Did you know that no amount of diet or exercise can get rid of true cellulite? Wondering how the heck you can get rid of those pesky dimples then?

Cellulite is caused when fibrous bands pull down the skin around fat lobules, which appears as those not so cute dimples on butts, thighs, etc. In comes QWO- the first ever FDA approved non-surgical treatment option for cellulite. QWO is an injectable made up of an enzyme called collagenase clostridium hystolyticum. The exact mechanism of QWO isn’t known just yet, but it is believed to work by releasing the fibrous bands under the skin, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen.

QWO is injected directly into the cellulite dimples, and typically a series of 3 treatments over the course of 10 weeks is recommended. The injections are quick (think quick like neurotox injections!), and require ZERO downtime! There is some bruising and tenderness to be expected, but you are free to return to all normal activities afterwards, including exercise!

Wondering more about this new, minimally invasive treatment option for cellulite? Schedule a consult today to discuss if you are a good candidate for QWO!
