Botox/Dysport Dilution Process To Give You The Best Results
It is recommended to dilute botox with saline solution 1 to 1. We strictly follow these guidelines and use only the best brand name products. We believe in patient education and include you in all the decision making. It is possible to dilute Botox and Dysport 2 to 1 and we do not believe in this practise. We are dedicated to helping you achieve you best and most natural look in a safe and ethical way.


Botox

Botox works by blocking nerve signals to the muscles, thus relaxing them and stopping them from contracting. It is a non-invasive, painless way to get rid of wrinkles, and even prevent future wrinkling. Your appointment is generally around 15 minutes long, with results starting to show anywhere from 3-7 days after the treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there any down time after getting Botox?
There is aboslutely no down time after getting Botox. You are free to wear makeup and resume your daily scheduled activity. The only restriction is we need you to stay up and about, and not lie down for 4 hours following the treatment. Our Nurse Practioner will give you an “Aftercare” paper with more information for after your session. You can also find this paper at the bottom of this web page.

How do I know how many "units" I need?
The amount of units you need is dependant on the area(s) being treated, and the severity of the wrinkles. At the bottom of this page there are a couple diagrams that give a very broad estimate as to what you would need for each area. Please keep in mind this is just a general estimate, and it varies from person to person. Book a free consultation with our Nurse Practioner and she will be happy to go over every thing with you.

Dysport

Dysport and Botox share the same active ingredient and both do the same thing. Dysport is said to be longer lasting and results are said to show sooner in comparison to Botox. Dysport results are typically apparent within 1-2 days of the treatment. Whether to choose Dysport or Botox is a personal preference. Book a free, no-obligation consultation with our experienced Nurse Practitioner for more information.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many fillers do I need?
Depending on the area(s) being treated, the filler amount would be different for everyone. Some people need as little as ½ a syringe. In most cases, the same product can be used to treat multiple areas. If you buy 1 syringe and don’t finish it, we can store it in a box with your name, in a locked fridge that only the Nurse Practioner has access to. You can then book an appointment to come finish the rest at any time with no added charge. If you need more than 1 syringe in 1 session at our Spa, we offer the 2nd syringe deeply discounted.

Is there any downtime or side effects?
Following your appointment you may experience slight swelling or redness to the treated areas. This will decrease throughout the day, and should be fully gone within the first 24-48 hours. It is preferred if you don't wear makeup after the treatment, but you still can if you need to. Our Spa will give you an "Aftercare" paper to guide you on the Do's and Don'ts after your treatment.

Belkyra

Belkyra (called Kybella in U.S.A.) has been in Europe for years, and is now approved for use in Canada/U.S.A. It is a non-invasive way to permanently eliminate moderate to severe fat from under the chin area. It can be used for people with a genetic double chin, or on people who have some extra weight on them. As of right now, it is only approved for the double chin area, and not other areas on the body. Depending on your size, you will need 1-4 treatments of Belkyra, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Each appointment is set for 45 minutes, but the actual injections only last a few minutes and are virtually painless.

You may experience some burning for the first 30 minutes afterwards, but it will decrease as time goes on. Some clients experience light burning/swelling/numbness, but this will also decrease within the first 2-3 days. Although some clients experience swelling/tenderness, you are free to go back to work the following day. Book a free, no-obligation consultation with our experienced Nurse Practitioner for more information.

People have opted out of liposuction and have switched over to Belkyra/Kybella. Check out the 82% "Worth It" rating on www.realself.com from clients who have already tried it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can get Belkyra done?
Adults over the age of 18 of any gender or skin type can get Belkyra. You cannot get this done if you are pregnant(or trying), breastfeeding, or have an infection in the treatment area. You are not a good candidate for Belkyra if you have a history of dysphagia.

Do I need to come back for touch ups?
Getting to your desired result can take from 1-6 treatment sessions (most people only need 1-3). Once you have reached your desired look, you do not need to come back in for touch ups. Unlike other types of injectables, this is not temporary and no maintenance is needed. Belkyra works to destory fat cells. Once those cells are destroyed, they cannot store or accumulate fat.

How soon will I see results?
Results are visable typically around 4-6 weeks after the treatment.

History of Belkyra(Kybella):
BELKYRA™ treatment was approved in 2015 by Health Canada and the FDA (under the label “KYBELLA”). Before approval, BELKYRA™ treatment was supported by over 20 clinical studies worldwide involving over 2,600 patients.

General Frequently Asked Questions

Who is legally allowed to administer cosmetic injections in Ontario?
In Ontario, Nurse Practioners are allowed to buy and treat patients with cosmetic injections. They do not need to be overseen by a Doctor. Registered Nurses are also allowed to administer the treatment to the patient, but he/she must be under the supervision of a Doctor. For any concerns regarding Nurse Practioners' Scope of Practice and capabilities, feel free to call The College of Nurses at 416-928-0900.

Who will be performing the treatment on me at Spa Namaste?
Our very experienced Nurse Practioner, Sahalia Rashid will be performing all cosmetic injectables treatments at our spa. Click here for more information about Sahalia.

What happens if I don’t finish all of my purchased injection product?
It is okay if you don't finish it all up in one visit. Our Nurse Practioner will put your product back into it's box, with your information on the box, and store it in our locked injection fridge. Only Sahalia has access to this fridge, and you can book an appointment at any time to finish it up, free of charge.

How do I know which dermal filler I should use?
Trying to decide between which brand to go with is a personal preference. Juvederm and Revanesse are extremely similar. They have both been FDA approved and tested over and over again for safety. You will notice that Juvederm is more expensive than Revanesse at every spa. This is because Juvederm is the leading brand, very established and known worldwide. Revanesse is a Canadian company and is not available in U.S.A., making it less popular. The price however, does not reflect on the quality of Revanesse, as you will find mixed reviews of which one is better of the two. Brands aside, there are different fillers available within each brand. These fillers are similar with some minor differences, making them great for specific areas to treat. Some filler products within each brand, perform better used in different areas. This can all be discussed with our Nurse Practioner and she can help you decide which filler would be best for you.

Before Your Appointment

To avoid bruising, it is best not to take any anti-inflammatory medication or pain relievers that are blood thinners such as Aspirin, Tylenol, Advil or Motrin. Avoid the following vitamins & supplements: Vitamin E, Fish Oil, Omega 3 fatty acids, Ginkgo Biloba, Garlic. Ginger, Cayennes, Licorice, Flax seed oil, and COQ10. Avoid drinking alcohol a few days before treatment since it, too, is a blood thinner.

If you have a history of cold sores (Perioral Herpes) the doctor will prescribe a medication for you to start the day before or the day of the treatment. If you have a tendancy to bruise easily, start taking Arnica Montana, an oral.

Important Aftercare Information

  • DO NOT massage, rub or apply pressure to the treated area for 6 hours after treatment
  • Do not exercise for 24 hours after treatment
  • You can apply topical Arnica Montana cream to any areas with redness, bruising or swelling
  • Avoid exposure to the sun & cold outdoor activities until redness from treatment disappears
  • Do not restart Retinol or Retin-A for 2 days after treatment

If You Had Botox/Dysport Today

  • Stay erect; do not lie down for at least 4 hours following your treatment
  • You may experience occasional tingling sensations
  • An immediate headache is common, especially if it is your first botox treatment
  • It can take 2-14 days to take full effect and can last 3-4 months
  • Makeup can be reapplied after treatment with no down time

If You Had Filler Today

  • Avoid kissing, puckering, using a straw, and "lip plumpers". This can displace the filler material and cause complications
  • Immediately apply ice to the treated area with very light pressure to reduce swelling. Ice should be applied for 10-20 minutes and then removed for 10-20 minutes. This cycle can continue throughout the day if needed
  • Mild to moderate bruising is very common with fillers. Apply topical/oral Arnica Montana to help with any areas of bruising or swelling
  • Staying well hydrated can improve results. Filler attracts and binds to water to add volume to the skin
  • Avoid facials, peels, micro-dermabrasion, dental treatment, "face down" massages for two weeks.
  • Try to sleep on your back for the first few nights following treatment
  • If possible, avoid makeup today. Gentle cleansing and moisturizer is fine
  • The effect of filler is immediate with full effect in 7 days
