Hi everybody! Welcome back to Athena Plastic Surgery and Medspa. My name is Abby and I was recently hired as the Marketing Specialist here at Dr. Lipschitz’s office. I am bringing you along on my first few weeks here so you can learn all of the ins and the outs of the office with me! This week, we are discussing one of my favorite topics, injectables!
This is a neat topic because we offer such an array of injectables that address several issues that our patients are having. Botox, Juvederm, Voluma, Belotero and Restalyn are just a few of the many we carry. One of the most popular injectables that we offer at Athena Plastic Surgery is Botox. It is a tried and true neuromodulator that temporarily freezes the muscles where it is injected to help prevent and get rid of fine lines and wrinkles. It lasts 3-4 months and takes about 5-10 days to see results in most patients. We also carry Dysport which lasts about 4 months on average and takes 3-4 days to see results in our patients. A few weeks ago, I was injected with Botox for the first time so I’m here to share my experience with you all. We filmed the entire process and posted it on our Instagram, so go give us a follow and check out the video here! The process was very easy and quick and I didn’t experience any pain or discomfort. Prior to being injected, I had some fine lines and wrinkles on my forehead and around my eyes, most likely caused by over-exposure to sun. Dr. Lipschitz injected 40 units of Botox to my forehead, my crows feet and between my eyebrows, also known as the glabella. Immediately after being injected, I had small raised bumps at a few of the injection sites. This is normal and the bumps were gone by the next morning. I was instructed not to exercise for 24 hours and to avoid any sort of facial or massage of the face. None of my injection sites were sore, however, it is normal to experience some soreness and minor headaches after being injected with Botox. Within the week, I could see the results of the Botox and I was very impressed! My fine lines and premature wrinkles are gone! The overall quality and health of my skin looks and feels so much better. Botox should last anywhere from 3-4 months, however, it can vary from patient to patient. During the month of August, we are running some awesome specials on Botox. Go to our specials page on our website to see our offers for this month! A few of our most asked about products are our fillers. We offer several different fillers that can help lift, plump, volumize and contour the face. Filler can be placed in the lips to make them more full and plump. It can also be placed in the cheeks to give a more lifted, youthful look to our patients. Filler can also be placed in the nose to preform a “liquid rhinoplasty” which helps with the shape and appearance of the nose. We even offer undereye filler that can be used to fill deep, dark circles. If you are interested in learning more about filler, visit our website. We are offering some awesome deals on Botox and Filler packages this month. Give our office a call at 772-266-5003 to book your appointment today!
