Commonly Asked Questions:

How long will it take?
In the hands of an experienced injector, Botox should not take more than a few minutes. We will want to look at your facial anatomy and discuss your desired results prior to treatment to give you the best result.

Does BOTOX hurt?
Botox injections are fast and feel like a small sting. There is no pain afterward and most people do not require numbing ahead of time.

Is BOTOX safe?
BOTOX is safe when done under the care of an experienced medical provider. Dr. Mona is a national Allergan trainer who has trained other medical professionals how to inject properly. She has personally trained our other injectors, Jessica Pater and Anna Donovan in the best and safest techniques to administer Botox

At Mona Dermatology, we only use authentic BOTOX, administered according to safe and appropriate guidelines

What should I expect?

During your Treatment:
Our experienced providers will discuss your areas of concern and assess your facial anatomy. We will use a small insulin needle to inject onobotulinum (BOTOX) into the appropriate muscles. Afterward we will apply Arnica cream to decrease your risk of bruising and help the healing.

After your treatment:
You can wash your face and apply makeup within an hour after treatment.
We ask you not to bend over for long periods of time or participate in strenuous exercise for 12 hours after the procedure to help decrease the risk of onobotulinum toxin diffusion. “Frown, frown, don’t bend down” is an easy way to remember this.

When will I start seeing results?
You will start to notice a decrease in wrinkles and muscle movement in 3-7 days, although it may take up to 2 weeks for everything to take full effect
Your results usually last 3-4 months before your muscle movement and wrinkles start coming back

We recommend you rebook your next appointment before you leave so your wrinkles don’t have a chance to come back

Will there be downtime?
This is usually a no downtime procedure. Occasionally a bruise may develop that lasts for a few days

Am I a candidate?
Almost everyone is a candidate, especially if you want to prevent wrinkles from even forming



Replace lost volume instantly to restore the natural shape of your face, while we lift and contour your cheeks, smooth and soften your folds, and define and plump your lips.

The Juvederm Collection of fillers includes Juvederm XC, Voluma, Volbella and Vollure. Using a dermal filler like JUVÉDERM® XC or JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE is a safe and effective way to replace the Hyaluronic Acid your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds for subtle, long-lasting results.

The natural loss of volume in our cheeks and temples as we age leaves us with flattened cheeks and hollowed temples skin that begins to sag. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek. 

We also lose volume in our lips as we age. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is the perfect way to add volume to the lips and smooth the appearance of vertical lip lines while JUVÉDERM® Ultra™ XC can enhance and define your lip line.

Your face could not be in better hands. One of our trained providers will help you choose the best options for you

JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC softens moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles by adding volume to the lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth to produce subtle and long-lasting results for up to 18 months.

One of the more noticeable signs of aging is volume loss in the cheeks, over the zygoma, also referred to as the “cheek bone”. This loss of volume leads to sagging of the cheeks, formation of jowls, and overall aged and tired appearance. Voluma provides a non-surgical option to visibly lift and sculpt the face, leaving a brighter and more youthful you!

Everyone’s skin ages differently and JUVÉDERM® XC may be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas. From smile lines to vertical lip lines, you can smooth away unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours. Everyone will notice, but no one will know.

JUVÉDERM® XC comes in two formulations: JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC.

RADIESSE® is another naturally occurring filler composed of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA). It provides an instant lift by restoring lost volume in areas of the lower face, effectively treating moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. It continues to work overtime by stimulating the natural production of collagen for a more refreshed appearance that has been clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients
