Questions to Ask Your Doctor before Using Botox

Questions to Ask Your Doctor before Using Botox

Questions to Ask Your Doctor before Using BotoxBotox is the world’s most popular non-surgical anti-aging facial procedure. For individuals who wish to avoid plastic surgery, Botox can serve as an effective short-term alternative to reduce facial lines and wrinkles. During the initial Botox consultation, the patient should clarify all their concerns and doubts by asking the right questions.
Motykie Medical Spa is one of the well-known med spa facilities providing state of the art non-surgical aesthetic treatments, including Botox. The medical spa is led by experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie. It provides treatment to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.
 

Key Questions to Ask

The following is a list of some of the important questions that a patient may ask the Botox provider during the initial consultation in order to make an informed decision:

  • Is your plastic surgery practice or medical spa equipped to provide Botox injections?
  • Do you have the necessary training and experience in injecting Botox?
  • How frequently do you perform the Botox injectable treatment?
  • Will you schedule a follow-up appointment after the Botox treatment?
  • Can I receive Botox before and after photos of earlier patients that you may have treated?
  • What are the typical risks and complications that you have seen in your experience with Botox treatment?
  • What should I do if I experience any side effects following Botox treatment?
  • Do I need to alter my existing prescription or non-prescription medications prior to Botox procedure?
  • Will the procedure be painful during the injection process as well as after the treatment?
  • Is there any downtime involved following Botox injections?
  • How long will it take to perform the complete injection procedure?

As an experienced cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Motykie or his team of experts will address all queries of the patient properly. The medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas.
 

Questions Related to the Procedure

Some patients may be very concerned about the precise nature of Botox treatment, particularly if they are planning to receive it for the first time. They may ask the following questions:

  • Would you be able to achieve a natural looking arch and provide a lift to the brow with Botox? Can you explain how each muscle works and how Botox will affect these muscles to produce the desired effect?
  • Will you ensure that the brows do not become too highly arched and appear very natural? If this condition does occur, can it be fixed?
  • How will you prevent the undesirable side effects such as drooping brows and eyelids?
  • Will you be able to eliminate the appearance of crow’s feet effectively and safely with Botox?
  • Is there any difference between Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin injectables for the reduction of facial lines and wrinkles?
  • What is the average volume of Botox medication that is administered at your medical spa for the reduction of frown lines and crow’s feet?

Patients should also ask questions related to estimated costs and financing options clearly during the initial consultation.

Juvederm as a Cheek Filler

Juvederm as a Cheek FillerAs a person ages, the face may not just reveal wrinkles and fine lines, but also the cheeks may experience loss of volume. This can give a sunken look to the face, and make a person look older. An experience medspa treatment provider may recommend Juvederm Voluma as a most effective non-surgical solution to add volume to the cheeks.
 Juvederm Voluma and various other dermal filler injectable treatments are available Motykie Medical Spa, the leading provider of non-surgical aesthetic procedures. Led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, the medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.
 
 

Specialized Treatment

Juvederm Voluma is the first and only dermal filler injectable procedure that has been approved by the FDA specifically for cheek volumizing. The injectable gel will add instant volume and provide a desirable facial contour and a subtle lift to the cheeks. With optimal treatment at a recognized medspa, the results with Juvederm Voluma can last for as long as two years.
 
Juvederm Voluma is used in more than 70 countries around the world as a soft tissue filler for the cheeks. The formulation may include lidocaine for added comfort, which is available as Juvederm Voluma XC.
 
 

Adding Midface Volume

Facial aging is commonly marked by the loss of volume of the midface. The severity of this condition will vary among patients, but it can lead to noticeable changes in facial appearance such as the loss of cheekbone definition. While this condition can be corrected with surgery, but a growing number of people now prefer a volumizing filler such as Juvederm Voluma to achieve a similar cheek lift without surgery.
 
Juvederm Voluma will restore the midface volume to recreate a youthful, natural looking face. The entire injectable procedure can be completed in less than 30 minutes. Motykie Medical Spa is one of the premier providers of Juvederm Voluma soft tissue filler for patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby locations.
 
 

Suitable Candidates

 
Almost anyone suffering from loss of volume in the cheeks and midface will make a good candidate for Juvederm Voluma. People with poorly defined cheekbones can also benefit from this treatment. Patients in the age group of 30 to 60 most commonly seek Voluma treatment.
 
However, many patients beyond the age of 60, who suffer from significant skin laxity and volume loss, tend to choose Voluma treatment because they want to avoid surgery. In such cases, a greater amount of filler volume may be needed to achieve the right outcomes.
 
 

Unique Vycross Technology

 
Juvederm Voluma is a hyaluronic acid based filler designed to treat the midface. Its unique character arises from Vycross technology, which cross-links the hyaluronic acid to help provide substantive lifting capacity.
 
This unique cross linking also helps to prevent degradation, enabling the results with Voluma to last almost twice as long as other derma fillers. Results with this HA filler can be shaped and molded into the desired contour after the injection, as long as the procedure is performed by an experienced provider.

Juvederm for Laugh Lines

Juvederm for Laugh LinesJuvederm is an injectable filler procedure to temporarily restore facial volume, reduce lines and wrinkles, and enhance facial contours. Juvederm injectable treatment should be performed by an experienced medspa filler treatment provider to achieve desirable outcomes.
Reduction or elimination of laugh lines is one of the important benefits of Juvederm. Motykie Medical Spa is among the leading providers of Juvederm dermal filler injections. It operates under the direct guidance and supervision of Dr. Gary Motykie who is a board certified plastic surgeon. The medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.
 

Reduction of Laugh Lines

Laugh lines on the face are proof that the person has been leading a life full of joyful facial expressions. However, due to aging and other factors, these lines can become more prominent and make a person appear older than their real age. It is possible to smooth or eliminate these unwanted lines in a non-surgical manner with Juvederm injections.
The medspa treatment provider will evaluate the general skin health and depth of the laugh lines before determining whether Juvederm or a combination of Juvederm and Botox might produce ideal results to meet the patient’s aesthetic goals. The dermal filler expert will also assess whether the laugh lines are dynamic or also remain visible when the face is at rest.
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid based filler that will be injected along the crease extending from the nose to the corners of the mouth. The filler gel will work quickly to fill in the creases, smooth the face, and substantially reduce the laugh lines. Juvederm will not only fill the laugh lines but will also replace volume loss in the treated areas of the face. This will create a fuller facial look, and the results can last for about one year.
 

Composition of Juvederm

 Juvederm is produced from hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the human skin. Hyaluronic acid is a complex sugar that supports skin elasticity and volume to hold the skin firmly in its place. It also performs the role of delivery and retention of vital nutrients and moisture to the skin. With age, the skin experiences loss of hyaluronic acid, and Juvederm injections can be used to replenish it.
The hyaluronic acid used in Juvederm is specially formulated as a highly consistent, smooth, and malleable gel. This allows the treatment provider to use ultra-fine needles to perform the injections in a relatively pain-free manner. Results with Juvederm laugh line reduction are also more natural looking. Motykie Medical Spa provides Juvederm and other dermal filler treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas.
 

Long Lasting Results

Just a single treatment session of about 30 minutes is required for Juvederm injections, and the results can last for up to one year. In its segment of hyaluronic acid based biocompatible fillers, Juvederm results last longer than any other dermal filler. The treatment can be repeated in future to extend the aesthetic benefits of Juvederm.

Juvederm for Lips

Juvederm for LipsJuvederm is one of the most popular FDA approved dermal filler injections for non-surgical facial rejuvenation. The procedure can be received at a medspa that is qualified to provide Juvederm treatment. While Juvederm is used to correct facial lines, wrinkles, creases, and reshape facial contours, it is also used effectively to enhance the lips.
Motykie Medical Spa is a premier provider of Juvederm facial filler injectable treatment. Led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, the med spa is equipped to provide state of the art non-surgical aesthetic procedures. Motykie med spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.
 

Candidates

If a woman wants to achieve fuller lips to accentuate her facial appearance, she may be a striking and suitable candidate for Juvederm filler. The filler is designed to provide lip augmentation to a desired level to make the face appear more attractive. In some cases, the candidate may have uneven or unbalanced lips.
Juvederm may be used to improve the symmetry between lips. Some patients wish to regain the youthful shape of lips and add definition to the lip shape. All these specific improvements can be achieved with Juvederm filler injections from an experienced medspa treatment provider.
 

How does it Work?

Juvederm injectable gel is available in various forms, including one which is mixed with lidocaine. This avoids the need to apply any local anesthetic, and makes the procedure relatively painless. Juvederm gel is very smooth, which allows the treatment provider to use an ultra-fine needle to inject it in the targeted areas of the lips. The gel fills in the lip lines and wrinkles, and produces enhanced lip appearance.
The key ingredient of Juvederm is hyaluronic acid, which will attract and retain moisture. It will also stimulate the production of fresh collagen within the skin. Therefore, results with Juvederm lip augmentation can last for up to a year. Motykie Medical Spa provides Juvederm and other filler procedures to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby locations.
 

Biocompatible Treatment

Hyaluronic acid, which is the main component of Juvederm, is a natural complex sugar that is found in the human body. Its role is to add elasticity and volume to the skin and hold it firm. As this is a natural substance, it makes Juvederm a completely biocompatible treatment.
No prior allergy tests are necessary for patients who choose to receive Juvederm injectable fillers. Results with Juvederm are natural looking because of the smooth and consistent gel that is created through an advanced manufacturing process.
 

Benefits

One of the key benefits of Juvederm is that the procedure causes comparatively less discomfort and produces more enduring outcomes. Sometimes the treatment provider may recommend a combination of Juvederm and Botox for more dramatic results.
Results are visible almost immediately and establish fully within a few days. Downtime involved is very little, which makes Juvederm lip augmentation an ideal solution for busy moms and working people. The entire procedure can be completed in a single session of about 30 minutes.

This is totally normal and expected. New hair will become noticeable in about three months. Marked improvement can be seen progressively over the next few months, and full growth at 12 to 14 months.

What the Patients are Saying

Here are excerpts from some of the online reviews about Motykie Medical Spa to provide insights to new patients about the treatment experience at the facility:
West Hollywood, CA – Nina N.
Facial and IPL Treatment
So happy to get amazing results from my Facial & IPL treatments at Motykie Med Spa! I have tried other spas that gave me a fluff treatment that did nothing to improve the quality of my skin. After I have been going here, my skin is clear, glowing, no makeup needed! I’m so happy and thankful.


Tiffany G.
Fire and Ice Facial and Venus Freeze
Saturday I had the “Fire and Ice” facial. Trisha was the technician, again, and really great. This is not a facial like you may be used to. It’s really a skin treatment. You don’t get your hands and feet massaged or any extractions. It is a series of products. My skin was amazing the next day. I also had Venus Freeze on my arms. It’s not a freeze at all, it’s warm.
Anon.
CoolSculpting
I had a great consultation with Trish. My situation is not your average fat situation. I have had a lot of trauma to my midsection and am really careful about what I do there. She suggested 3 paddles. Each area takes about an hour and you do one area at a time. Then over the next 2 weeks to 90 days the fat dies off and is eliminated by the body. It NEVER comes back – EVER! Love that.
In addition to Trish, who has been there 3 years, I met with Tracy C, the Spa Director and Renee, the PR Manager, to do some more research and make sure I was comfortable. They were all so nice and so informative. I felt really comfortable. I probably spent 30+ minutes with them talking about the procedure, the pricing etc. Just ask questions, they are happy to answer them.
Los Angeles, CA – Skye S.
Lip Augmentation with Dermal Filler Injections
At Motykie Med Spa I felt so comfortable by the time I actually came in to get my procedure. They were so friendly, accommodating, and answered all of my questions. Even after my procedure they called me and checked up on me and answered all my first timer crazy questions!
When I first arrived at the spa for my procedure I was impressed with how beautiful the spa was. It’s very modern, clean and sophisticated.
I was able to construct my perfect lips with her. It was a bit uncomfortable, but definitely nothing close to the pain I was expecting. If you’re ok with needles then it will probably be a breeze for you.
Los Angeles, CA – Sam E.
Facial
I love this spa! The staff is super friendly and the services are great! The facial I got was one of the best and most importantly the products used were amazing.
West Hollywood, CA – Meg D.
Botox
I am a HUGE fan of this place!!! Amazing staff, and beautiful and clean atmosphere. Very luxurious and they are always so accommodating with my schedule and take amazing care of me pre and post treatment.
I just tried Dr. Tsai for the first time today and LOVED him. He was extremely knowledgable and performed my Botox with no bruising or pain and gave me his card in case I had any issues later. They are well priced and have great specials all the time. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
San Francisco, CA – Cory C.
