Botox In Rhode Island

Botox in Rhode Island is the most common minimally invasive procedure performed in the United States, with over 6 million procedures per year.

If you are wondering why some people never seem to age, the answer is probably Botox injections. Botox not only erases your current wrinkles, but also assists with wrinkle prevention if started at an early age.

Botox is simple and affordable. Its uses include cosmetic treatments to the face and neck, control of excessive sweating and the treatment of migraine headaches.

What is Botox?

Botox is a prescription medication that contains onabotulinumtoxinA, which reduces muscle contractions, leading to less wrinkles and fine lines.

Where do we get Botox Injectable RI from?

Simply Injectables, LLC purchases our RI Botox directly from Allergan, USA. You can verify you are receiving authentic Botox by reviewing providers listed on Allergan’s website: http://www.botoxcosmetic.com/FindADoctor/FAD.aspx

What are the side effects of Botox?

Patients may experience self-limiting flu-like symptoms or headache for a day or so after receiving injections. Other, more rare side effects are listed on Allergan’s website and feel free to ask questions during your FREE consultation.

Do I need downtime for the procedure?

While no downtime is required, patients should allow for the possibility of mild bruising following their injections.

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure usually takes 10-15 minutes following consultation.

Is there anything I can do to reduce bruising during my injections?

Patients should try to avoid fish oil, flax seed oil, multivitamins, NSAID’s such as Ibuprofen and alcohol (including beer wine and liquor) at least 3 days before injections. You should consult with your physician about stopping aspirin, coumadin or other blood-thinning medications. These medications increase the risks of bruising and should be stopped about 7 days before your injections if possible.

What areas can be treated with Botox?

For reduction of wrinkles; forehead, glabella (11 lines), crows feet, certain lip lines.

Botox can be used to slim the jaw line, reduce a gummy smile, lift up the corners of the mouth, decrease dimpling of the chin, lift the jowls in some patients and reduce protruding necklines.

Botox can also be used to treat migraine headaches and is excellent in reducing excessive sweating.

Does the procedure hurt? Most people are pleasantly surprised by how little injections hurt. The smallest needle and a gentle hand are used while injecting to ensure maximum comfort of patients.

When would I see results? Most patients start to see results within the first 3 days of being injected. The full results will be seen in 2 weeks. Patients should try and wait a full 2 weeks before deciding if more treatment is needed.

Are there any post-procedure instructions? Patients should not lie down, workout, or wear constrictive headgear for the first 4 hours after receiving injections.

Do I need to follow up after I receive injections? Yes. As a new patient the single most important thing to me is that your injections go well and you love the results. Unlike a haircut, results are not seen immediately. Full results from Botox are not seen for 2 weeks. Dosages and expectations vary from person to person.

How long will my Rhode Island Botox injections last?

Clinical studies with patients receiving 20 units of Botox Cosmetic in the glabella area had an average duration of 3 months. Although duration can vary anywhere from 2-6 months conservative patients using less units will have a shorter duration of effect.

What if I do not keep doing injections, will my wrinkles get worse? No! During the period of time you had your Botox you were not contracting your facial muscles, so after your Botox has worn off, you may still have residual benefits and softening of the lines. This is why Botox can also be preventative.

Why are your Botox prices so much lower than other clinics? Simply Injectables keeps its overhead to a minimum and passes a discounted price on to its clients.

Why should I choose Botox cosmetic over Dysport and Xeomin? All are OnabotulinumtoxinA. It is the preference of this provider through extensive use of all products that Botox cosmetic is superior when it comes to longevity.

Other products can be administered based on a patient’s request.

DO NOT USE BOTOX if…..

  • Pregnant or breast -feeding
  • Skin infections are present
  • Allergic or adverse reactions to the ingredients of Botox in the past

Juvederm in Rhode Island

What is JUVÉDERM?
Juvéderm in Rhode Island is a high performing facial rejuvenation filler. It is made from simple sugars called hyaluronic acids that occur naturally in the body. Hyaluronic acids are found in almost every living thing and are essential for the body’s day-to-day functioning. When suspended in a gel-like material, such as Juvéderm, these sugars act to support the structures of the face; almost like an inflated cushion under the skin. The results are instantaneous and can last up to one year.

Who makes Juvéderm?
Allergan, Inc., the same company that makes Botox cosmetic.

Are Juvéderm injections painful?
Juvederm is mixed with lidocaine to prevent discomfort. Most patients are very comfortable and receive injections without the use of ice or topical numbing. Patients who compare receiving injections of both Botox and Juvéderm generally say that Juvéderm is less painful.

What areas can Juvéderm treat?
Juvéderm can be used to treat a number of areas including smile lines, (creases from the bottom of the nose to the chin), eye hollows (darken areas underneath the eyes) and for jaw, chin and lip augmentation and volume loss in the hands.

When should I see the results of Juvéderm?
While a noticeable result is instantaneous, patients will generally see more complete results after ~2 weeks.

What are the side effects of Juvéderm?
Juvéderm (hyaluronic acid) is a naturally occurring substance found in the body. Side effects are mostly due to the procedure and not the filler itself. These usually minor and self-limiting side effects range from redness, pain or tenderness, swelling, bruising, discoloration, lumps/bumps or itching at the injection site.

What if I receive injections and do not like the results of my Juvéderm?
While most patients love the results, those that do not most likely have not used enough product. If for some reason the results are not what you desire, Juvéderm can be removed by injecting an enzyme to break it down .

Do I need downtime for Juvéderm injections?
While no downtime is required, patients should allow for the possibility of mild bruising and swelling following their injections.

Is there anything I can do to reduce bruising from Juvéderm injections?
Our Rhodc Island Juvederm Patients should try to avoid fish oil, flax seed oil, multivitamins, NSAID’s such as Ibuprofen and alcohol (including beer wine and liquor) at least 3 days before injections. You should consult with your physician about stopping aspirin, coumadin or other blood-thinning medications. These medications increase the risks of bruising and should be stopped about 7 days before your injections if possible.

Certain over the counter remedies that have helped reduce bruising in my patients are Arnica Montana and Bromelain. Arnica Montana should be taken at least 2 days before receiving injections. Three tablets are usually placed under the tongue. Bromelain is a substance found in pineapples and helps prevent bruising. Some of my patients will eat pineapple or drink pineapple juice 2 days before receiving injections.

How much will Juvéderm cost?
Our Rhode Island Concierge service offers the 1st syringe costs $475 and additional syringes are discounted to $425 per syringe when used within one month of first syringe.

How many syringes of Juvéderm will I need??
This will depend on the area that you would like treated. A little amount and a conservative approach to fillers can give a great result, but best results are always seen with the appropriate amount for a given area in order to create the fuller, smoother look desired.

Average number of syringes needed per area:
Tear troughs, 1-2 Syringes
Cheeks, 2-3 Syringes
Nasolabial folds, 1-2 Syringes
Marionette lines, 1-2 Syringes
Lips, 1.5 Syringes

What are my post care instructions after receiving treatment with Juvéderm?

Avoid drinking alcohol for 24 hours, direct sunlight, excessive heat, and strenuous exercise. All of these things have the ability to cause additional bruising.

If you develop a bruise it will resolve like any other bruise. It is ok to use cold compresses but direct skin contact with ice should be avoided.

Any lumps, bumps, or small needle sticks should subside within a few hours. It is ok to cover the areas with makeup if needed.

When should I follow up after my injections?
I am always available for questions and follow up after your injections, however waiting for two weeks to see the end result is preferred before deciding if you need more treatment.

Although extremely rare, follow up immediately if you develop intense pain, draining, or extreme heat at an injection site. This could be an infection or reaction to the filler itself.

How long will my injections last?
Juvéderm lasts up to one year.

DO NOT USE JUVERDERM IF:
You have an active skin injection, including cold sores.
Are pregnant or breast-feeding.
Have had reactions to Juvéderm in the past.
