Liquid Gold FAQs
What’s the difference between the three?
Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau are different forms of purified botulinum toxin. Botulinum toxin is a neuromuscular blocking agent, which means it temporarily causes paralysis of the muscle that’s injected. One is not better than the other, it’s all dependent on the person and their preference. Dysport is less expensive per unit, but will take more units to achieve your desired results.
Where is botulinum toxin injected?
The most frequently treated facial features are crows feet, forehead lines, and frown lines.
How many units will I need?
The number of units needed to treat varies for each patient. A complimentary consultation is the best way to know an accurate estimate.
Can you get botulinum toxin when pregnant or nursing?
No. It is not advised to receive botulinum toxin injections while nursing or pregnant.
Are botulinum toxin results instant?
No. Results can take up to 2 weeks to appear.
When is the best time to start preventive treatments?
It’s really a personal decision and is different for everyone. If you are starting to see the appearance of deeper or more permanent lines, then it is probably the right time for you! You can always schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our nurse injectors to discuss personal goals.
Will my face be “frozen” or will anyone be able to notice?
You can be as conservative or as aggressive as you would like with your treatment. The goal is for people to notice that you look more “refreshed,” but not know that you’ve had anything done!
Can you get botulinum toxin for reduce sweating?
Yes, it can be used to treat hyperhidroisis (under arm sweating), but we do not accept any form of insurance.
