We recommend showing up about 10 minutes prior to your appointment time so that you can fill out your necessary treatment consents and for us to review your medical history. It is necessary to resign consent each time you take treatment.
After consents are signed a member of the team will take your pictures to document the skin’s health and appearance pre-treatment. Once the pictures are completed a member of our team will then wash the treatment area. After you are prepped and ready; Your provider will then begin your treatment which will take about 10 minutes.
Please make a special note that you should not have any scheduled dental work within two weeks of your treatments. Bring a hair tie to pull your hair back from your face. We can provide a head wrap if needed. Many clients take Arnica tabs a few days prior to the appointment to minimize bruising. Avoid the consumption of alcohol as this can lead to an increased risk of bruising prior to the treatment. The healthier you eat, the better all around. If you feel ill, or have a fever you must reschedule your appointment.
We look forward to working with you along your aesthetic journey!
Please note our cancelation policy which can be found on the web @ https://surfacemedicalesthetics.com/about/policies/ . Kindly give us a minimum of 48 hours notice should you need to cancel or change your appointment.
Please refrain from the use of hats, helmets and visors for three days after your treatment. It is also important to not have a facial or a massage three days after your treatment. The Botox or Dysport (neuromodulator) that we put in the muscle needs to set up in the muscle in order to take effect. By restricting the blood flow and putting pressure on the muscles in the treated area can cause an unwanted shift in the product and at times it will result in an unwanted out come.
Botox and Dysport (neuromodulator) takes two full weeks to kick in. As the treatment begins to settle you may want to give us a call to have us add a touch more in that time frame. We will not add more in the treated area within that two weeks time frame. Trust in the process that it will all settle out within the two weeks. Should you need a slight touch up at two weeks, we welcome you to come back in for evaluation. Our goal is to do our best to meet your aesthetic wishes. We really do encourage and love to see all of our clients back at two weeks to be sure your treatment is perfect.
If perhaps you found yourself with a bit of a bruise, we recommend the use of Arnica cream and tablets. Each product formulation is different therefore, we would advise that you follow the specific directions on the back of the branded bottle you purchase. These can be found at the whole foods store right in Hampton or at most pharmacies and or grocery stores.
Want us to let you in on a little secret?
One helpful little trick to improve your Botox and Dysport (neuromodulator) treatment is being sure you have adequate Zinc in your system. All neuromodulators require Zinc at the nerve terminal so that the neuromodulator can bind to it most effectively. If you feel that your Neuromodulator isn’t as stiff or strong as it has been in the past and we are using the same dose…consider adding zinc supplements 5 days prior to treatment and 5 days post treatment. We do suggest you speak with your pharmacist to find the best product and be sure that if you are on any medications that it will not interfere with any previously prescribed drugs.
We are here for you and want you to feel confident in the process just as much as in your skin!
