“Will I be bruised after my injection?”

24 May 2016

One of the top questions we get here at Tribeca MedSpa is, “Will I be bruised after my injection?” Well you asked and we listened! Here are Tribeca Medspa’s best tips to combat bruising after a Neurotoxin injection, such as Botox, Dysport and Xeomin, or a Dermal Filler injection:

Before the Injection:

1. Avoid licorice root, fish oil supplements, aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen (i.e. Advil, Aleve, Motrin) for at least one week before your injection.

2. Avoid excessive amounts of alcohol and green tea one week prior to your injection.

3. Take an herbal supplement such as Arnica Montana or Bromelain during the week leading up to your injection.

Post Injection:

1. Continue to take any herbal supplements like Arnica Montana and Bromelain for as long as you like after the injection. At this time, you may also begin to take any anti-inflammatory medications again.

2. If you do bruise, use Regenica’s Recovery Gel to quickly heal the affected area. This smoothing gel is packed with natural anti-inflammatory agents including Arnica, Vitamin K and Aloe Vera, proven to reduce signs of bruising.

3. Icing bruises with a cold compress for one day after the injection, and then with a warm compress in the following days can also reduce signs of bruising.

What is a Unit of Botox?

11 August 2014

Botox is a medication, and as such has a dosage which is determined by a Medical Professional.  Botox dosage is measured in units.  The best wrinkle-erasing results come from a strategic treatment: a combination of appropriate dosage for each individual’s facial musculature and precise targeting of where the Botox is placed.  This brings us to the practical question: what is the difference in paying ‘by unit’ for a Botox treatment and paying ‘by area.’

Some practices choose to charge a set ‘by area’ price, but at TriBeCa MedSpa we charge our Botox by the unit.  When charged by the unit, you can be confident that you are only paying for the amount that you need.  When you pay per unit, the total price will vary with the number of units injected. The more units you receive, the more you pay. The less units you receive, then the less you pay.  In a complimentary consultation which includes an examination of your unique facial musculature, a thorough explanation of how Botox works and discussion of your desired result, you will be educated on exactly what dosage is appropriate for you.   There will be enough time to also give you the treatment on the day of your consultation, however if you prefer to just have the consultation and schedule the treatment another time that is completely up to you.

When you pay per area the price is set, regardless of the number of units of Botox injected into the area.  When considering area pricing though, you do need to know what each practice considers an “area.”  The glabella (the area between the browns where frown lines appear) is one area and the forehead (the lines that appear when raising one’s eyebrows up) is another area.  So what a resonable person may think of as one area is often considered two different treatment areas by a practice that charges area-rates.  Another consideration is that while you pay one lump sum per area, if you don’t need as much Botox as the next person, you’re paying the same, but getting less.  That just doesn’t seem fair, does it?  Often times, practices that charge by area will not educate you on the dosage you received for this very reason.  While ‘by area’ practices often include ‘free touch-ups’ within 2 weeks of the treatment date, we do not consider this a perk since Botox can take up to 14 days to take full effect.

Then there is the matter of style.  Do you want to erase lines, soften lines, alter shape such as evening out brows, or a combination?  The results from a Botox treatment can range from conservative to frozen based on the patient’s request.  In New York, the preferred look is ‘refreshed’ but unfrozen while the trend in Los Angeles is more frozen and patients may ask for certain expressions to be completely ‘knocked out’ or immobilized.  One is not better than another and there is plenty of room in between the two extremes.  But considering most New Yorkers still want to be able to frown when needed (sometimes oblivious tourists walking 4 abreast on our sidewalks deserve a frown!), we typically use fewer units than our left coast contemporaries.

We pride ourselves on providing a customized treatment plan and tailored experience for our customers at TriBeCa MedSpa.  Charging by unit is part of that experience.  Contact us to set up a consultation.  As Kelly Ripa, one of our favorite New York Girls, says: “I work out absolutely every day. I don’t overeat. I try to drink water but I prefer wine, and when all else fails, I get Botox injected right here, right into my forehead, as much as possible.”
