Dr. Sun is a licensed physician who can provide you with a free, no commitment assessment to assess how he can help you achieve the look you would like. After your appointment, you can decide if the injections are right for you. Depending on your medical history or your response to cosmetic procedures in the past, some clients may not be eligible for botox injections and fillers. Dr Sun can provide you with more information at your visit.
Treatments of botox are paid for on a unit basis and the price will vary depending on what you decide you would like treated. Currently, each unit of botox costs $10. For hyperhidrosis, there is a program to allow one free treatment provided you have an extended drug benefit plan, regardless of whether your plan covers botox or not.
Fillers are paid for per syringe. The cost varies depending on what type of treatments you are seeking.
First, you and Dr Sun will talk about what goals you'd like to achieve with facial enhancement or migraine and hyperhidrosis treatment. You will probably be asked to make some funny faces to emphasize the areas you'd like to enhance. Then Dr Sun will discuss the options available and the advantages of each one. Some photos may be taken to document the degree of enhancement achieved after treatment. When you opt for treatment, you have the option of applying a numbing topical anesthetic cream which will help with the mild discomfort of injection. This process can take an hour to become effective. After you are ready, Dr Sun will use the finest needles available to apply the botox or filler to the desired location. There may be some minor bleeding or bruising which can be easily handled with an ice pack and some makeup. You will then be given some instructions on aftercare, and booked for a 2 week followup to make sure you are happy with the results.
There is no time required to be off work after cosmetic injections. The main points to remember are that you should not lie down for several hours after treatment, and there should be no vigorous exercise or touching of the face for a day. Alcohol and antiinflammatory exposure should be limited for a day or two afterwards as well. Dr. Sun will discuss after care instructions with you at your consultation.
The maximum impact of botox is seen two weeks after treatment. Generally the effects last from 4-6 months, although some clients have the effects decrease sooner. In very rare circumstances, some clients are immune to the injections completely and may not notice any effect.
Dermal fillers will take effect immediately. The first few weeks after application tend to show even more improvement as the hyaluronic acid absorbs water and begins to accentuate the treated areas. This is one reason why you are asked to drink plenty of fluids after dermal filler treatment.
