“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.

For most of us, cost is a factor in our skin-care routines.  Even for those of us lucky enough to be ‘cost ambivalent’, everyone wants a good return on investment whether it’s in skin-care, the NASDAQ or in Masters Degrees.  A good return on investment is not always the same thing as a bargain, however.  To quote my favorite venture capitalist (who also taught me the term ‘cost-ambivalent’) “what looks like a good deal now, may not be in the long run: it’s all in the timing.”

A bargain is defined as: an advantageous purchase, especially one acquired at less than the usual cost.

The allure of a bargain has made sites like Groupon and Living Social hugely popular.  Though a yoga class or new restaurant coupon seems like a steal, a Laser Hair Removal package at 90% off may not be a good long term investment.  Often when redeeming these discounts, one’s choices are limited.  If your choices are limited on who provides the procedure or the time of day that it can be redeemed, are you getting the service you deserve?  These restrictions become even more limiting when considering a Medical Service.

Golden Rule #1: Know what you need.

If you have never used a Dermal Filler, buying a coupon for 2ccs of Radiesse might not be the best choice for you.  It could be like buying a discounted root canal when you have a mild tooth ache.  It may be a deal, and it may not.  Only time will tell.

Golden Rule #2: Know what you are getting.

If you purchase a ‘bikini’ series of Laser Hair Removal does the coupon expire before you are due to complete your series?  Will your scheduling be set up to give you great results, or will some other restriction take priority?

An informed consumer is an empowered consumer, which is why at TriBeCa MedSpa all ourconsultations are complimentary.  We are committed to educating our clients to make the kind of beauty decisions that are also healthy decisions.  Not everyone is a candidate for all the services that we provide, and some treatments do have downtime.  We will work with you to schedule treatments appropriately for your lifestyle and expectations to provide you with the best results long term—which is a real return on investment.

Dermal Filler

27 July 2014

The news is out about Dermal Fillers.  In other words, we’ve come a long way since 1986 and Lisa Rinna’s infamous lip situation.  Experts are called in routinely to discuss “did she or didn’t she” for gossip magazines that read often like an advertisement for filler.  But if you think that fillers are limited to the world of celebrity, think again.  Forbes, NY Times and CNN have all reported on the rapid rise of dermal fillers in the beauty industry.   With over 1.9 million procedures performed in 2011, the dermal filler question is rarely “Should I?” but rather “Which one?”

That question is answered best individually.  In a complimentary consultation you will meet with our expert Medical Staff where we will go over your medical history, talk about your concerns and let you know what type of results you can get from fillers, including which filler is recommended for you.  While there are several types of fillers on the market, research shows that hyaluronic acid based fillers (such as Restylane and Juvederm) are rapidly becoming the facial injection of choice.  While collagen-stimulating fillers such as Radiesse and Sculptra typically last longer, the gel-like consistency of hyaluronic fillers make them softer and more ‘spreadable’ which is best for areas like the lips or under the eyes where skin is thin.  Restylane, for example, is the only filler FDA-approved for lip enhancement.

If you are looking to restore lost volume or simply erase away a deep crease, Fillers are an excellent option.  Contact us to learn more.
