Frequently Asked Questions


Frequently Asked Questions


Can I have treatment on the same day as my consultation?

Yes, that is most often the case . If extensive treatment is required, it may be spread out over several treatments to achieve best results

Will I need to time for healing after my filler or Botox treatment?
You may resume your regular activity immediately but should avoid strenuous physical activity 24 hrs post treatment.

In most cases bruising is minimal, if at all. However, there is no guarantee you will not bruise. In many cases makeup is effective in covering the bruising.

Treated areas may also feel tender and swollen; this will resolve in a few days. Susan will discuss management of bruising, swelling and pain during the assessment.

How much Botox and fillers will I require?
The amounts of products required is dependent on the desired results. Treatment is different for everyone. For example, one person may require 2 syringes of filler for cheeks whereas another person may require 5 syringes for the same procedure. The amount of Botox and/or fillers required to achieve desired results is determined during your initial assessment.
Will my results look natural?
Your results can be as natural as you choose. Many people choose well defines lines and sharply defined features while others choose subtle changes only. The choice is yours.
Are treatment results guaranteed?
Results can only be guaranteed if treatment suggestions are followed. For example, if Susan suggests 40 units of Botox but you choose to use only 20 units, she cannot guarantee the exact results you are hoping for. The choice to proceed with the treatment is up to you.

I felt so confident in Susan’s skills that I later booked a second appointment for filler in my chin where I had a deep line. TJ”
