Joan Rivers or Angelina Jolie?

on Friday, 01 June 2012. Posted in Dermaspa Blog

If you choose to have cosmetic treatments with Botox or Fillers, will you end up looking like Joan Rivers or Angelina Jolie? This is a question we often get asked, and the answer is neither!

The ideal treatment with Botox Cosmetic and fillers such as Juvederm, results in you looking like yourself, only more relaxed, refreshed, healthy and natural. After all, you don’t want to look like someone else! Most of our patients tell us that the goal of their treatment is to look like the best version of themselves. We could not agree more - this is our ultimate goal when we perform non-invasive cosmetic treatments at DermaSpa.

Many of our patients have watched the Oscars, and are fearful of looking ‘fake” and “plastic” like a lot of the celebrities they see on TV. The truth is, that many of these celebrities that look “overdone” have had multiple surgical procedures as well as injectables. This look can rarely be achieved with injectables alone, especially when performed conservatively, with a natural look as a goal.

We urge our patients to consider what aspects of their look they want to refresh the most. We ask our patients to speak to us about their goals, any events coming up, their budget, and the timeline during which they wish to achieve their rejuvenation goals. We keep all this in mind when developing a treatment plan.

One option for people who are apprehensive about rejuvenation treatment, is performing treatments in “phases” so that they can view the changes gradually over time. We find that for some patients this is an excellent way to approach the goal in an affordable, comfortable way.

Other patients wish to perform the rejuvenation procedure in one visit. Usually this visit takes about one hour – after which you can return to normal life without downtime. You look great right after the treatment but the results are optimized two weeks later when we perform our follow up visit and the before and after results speak for themselves! We urge our patients to perform these treatments at least one week prior to a major event – so you can look your best for your special day.

Whichever way you choose to perform your rejuvenation with us, we can guarantee you that we always put our patients concerns first, and that we care about your goals, your needs and you.
