Botox FAQ

Botox and Dysport are both used to treat and prevent wrinkles, fine lines, and deep facial furrows. By working beneath the surface, Botox and Dysport help reduce the underlying muscle activity that causes the skin to appear wrinkled or folded.

You will start seeing some results in as quick as 3-5 days, but optimal results are achieved at approximately 14 days.

Results from Botox and Dysport are not permanent. Effects usually last about 3-4 months.

Botox and Dysport will only need one single treatment to show results. However, results last about 3-4 months, therefore treatments can continue upon this timeline for as long as the patient desires. The optimal treatment plan would to be seen every 3-4 months or 3-4 times a year.

No, your wrinkles will go back to baseline (the way they were before having a treatment).


Hyaluronic acid is used to make the face fillers at PMA. Fillers can be used to volumize facial folds and creases, fill in scar depressions, replenish lost soft tissue volume, and remove wrinkles. Our skin is more prone to wrinkles and fine lines as we age, particularly as a result of muscle action and sun exposure. Such damage can be repaired by facial injections of facial fillers.

Results are quickly apparent following treatment. After that, the healing process starts, which includes swelling for three to seven days, depending on the number and location of the injections and how your body responds to them. About two to three weeks following the injections, the substance settles, and you can enjoy your full results. Please provide yourself at least two weeks’ notice before any activities or trips in case you still have some swelling and bruises.

From person to person and from treatment to treatment, longevity varies. Some bodies may metabolize the substance more quickly than others because the product is being injected into the body. For average lifespans based on therapy, see below:

Cheek Filler: 9-18 months

Under Eye Filler: 6-18 months

Lip Filler: 6-12 months

Lower Face Filler: 9-18 months

Jawline Filler: 9-18 months

Chin Augmentation: 9-18 months

Nasolabial Fold (Smile/Laugh Lines) Filler: 6-12 months

Earlobe Filler: 9-18 months

Sculptra: 2-3 years

Because facial fillers are only a temporary fix, further treatments will be necessary to maintain the effects (see longevity info above).

Plan any events or holidays two weeks in advance to allow for probable bruises.

Kybella FAQ

Small pockets of body fat including a double chin, bra bulges, inner thigh fat, and belly fat can be permanently reduced with KYBELLA®.

When will I see results?

According to the KYBELLA® website, Synthetic deoxycholic acid is the active ingredient in KYBELLA®. A naturally occurring chemical in the body called deoxycholic acid helps the body break down and absorb dietary fat. When KYBELLA® is injected into the submental fat, it kills the fat cells, causing a discernible decrease in submental fullness. After you achieve your desired cosmetic goal, further treatment is not anticipated because once these cells are eliminated, they can no longer store or build fat.

– KYBELLA® website

According to the KYBELLA® website, fat cells are destroyed when KYBELLA® is injected into fat beneath the chin. These cells cannot store or accumulate fat once they have been destroyed. Further treatment is not anticipated once you achieve your desired appearance.

– KYBELLA® website

According to the KYBELLA® website, each patient receives a different amount of treatments. Based on the volume and distribution of your submental fat as well as your individual treatment objectives, your healthcare professional will assist you in determining the number of treatment sessions you require. You shouldn’t receive more than six KYBELLA® treatments, and each session is spaced at least one month apart. 59% of participants in clinical studies underwent 6 treatments.

– KYBELLA® website

Bruising and swelling is common. Give yourself a minimum of 2 weeks before any events/vacations.

According to the KYBELLA® website, “After KYBELLA® treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. Be sure to inform your healthcare professional if you develop an uneven smile, facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing or injection site problems such as bruising, hair loss, open sores (ulcers), and damage and tissue cell-death (necrosis) around the injection site. Call your healthcare provider if you develop open sores or drainage from the treatment area.”

Semaglutide FAQ

The small intestine produces the hormone GLP-1, which increases insulin release and suppresses glucagon secretion to lower blood sugar levels. A wide range of advantages, including positive effects on glycemia, have been associated with semaglutide.

– Tailormade Compounding Pharmacy website

Start with 0.25mg once per week, and if necessary or tolerated, increases to 0.5mg or more based on your Providers recommendations (this is the reason for the monthly follow up visits).

– Tailormade Compounding Pharmacy website

Reported advantages include weight loss, neuroprotection, improved fertility, PCOS treatment, quitting smoking, and cardiovascular advantages.

– Tailormade Compounding Pharmacy website

Semaglutide is injected subcutaneously, often in doses of 0.25 to 0.5 milliliters (0.5 to 1 mg) once every week. After a month of treatment, this dosage may be increased to 1mL (2 mg) once weekly if necessary. Most of the time, this medicine is well tolerated and can be continually taken without interrupting therapy without having any declining effects.

– Tailormade Compounding Pharmacy website

Side effects/precautions: Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach discomfort, and constipation are the most often reported side effects. Patients who have hypoglycemia, kidney issues, or a higher likelihood of allergic reactions are at an increased risk of experiencing major side effects. The drug in question is not an insulin.

– Tailormade Compounding Pharmacy website

Since it is not an insulin, this medicine should not be taken by anyone with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis.

Sclerotherapy FAQ

According to the Asclera website: “Asclera® (polidocanol) Injection is a prescription medicine that is used in a procedure called sclerotherapy to remove unwanted veins on your legs. It is administered by a healthcare provider to treat two types of veins:

  • Uncomplicated spider veins (very small varicose veins ≤ 1 mm in diameter)
  • Uncomplicated small varicose veins (1 to 3 mm in diameter) known as reticular veins
  • Asclera® has not been studied in varicose veins more than 3 mm in diameter.”

“Following treatment, you’ll need to wear compression stockings day and night for 2 to 3 days, then for 2 to 3 weeks during the daytime, as directed by your provider. Compression stockings are designed to apply pressure to your lower legs, helping to maintain blood flow, and reduce discomfort and swelling. Compression helps your legs heal and is necessary to reduce the risk of deep vein thrombosis.


Compression Hose: Length of Wear

Spider Veins: 2-3 days

Reticular Veins: 5-7 days

You should also walk 15 to 20 minutes immediately after treatment and daily for a few days.”

– ASCLERA® website

According to the Asclera website “The number and frequency of treatments depends on the size of the vessels and their location. Ask your provider about an individualized treatment approach that is right for you.”

– ASCLERA® website

According to the Asclera website; “Temporary side effects may occur at the site of the injection, including:

  • Bruising
  • Raised red areas
  • Small skin sores
  • Darkened skin in the form of lines or spots
  • Multiple tiny red blood vessels

These side effects usually go away within a few days to several weeks. Some side effects may take months or years to resolve.

Although rare, some individuals may experience serious side effects, which may require treatment. These can include:

  • An allergic reaction. Severe allergic reactions have been reported following polidocanol use, including anaphylactic reactions, some of them fatal. Severe reactions are most frequent with use of larger volumes (> 3 mL). The dose of polidocanol should therefore be minimized. A provider should be prepared to treat anaphylaxis appropriately
  • In rare cases, formation of small “burns” or ulcers form, usually due to leakage of Asclera® into the skin. These will heal in time but may leave a scar
  • Inadvertent perivascular injection of Asclera® can cause pain. If pain is severe, a local anesthetic (without adrenaline) may be injected”

– ASCLERA® website

According to the Asclera website; “Asclera® (polidocanol) Injection is contraindicated for patients with known allergy (anaphylaxis) to polidocanol and patients with acute vein and blood clotting diseases.” Pregnancy and breastfeeding is also contraindicated.


– ASCLERA® website

According to the Asclera website; “88% of clinical study patients were satisfied or very satisfied with their Asclera® treatment after 12 weeks.


Results are visible within 4-9 months.

Although outcomes may differ from person to person, long-lasting results from PRF treatments are usually long lasting.

The number of treatments varies from person to person, but on average, we recommend 3-4 treatment sessions separated by 4-6 weeks then 1-2 treatments per year for maintenance.

Plan any events or trips two weeks in advance to allow for probable bruising and swelling from injections.  Recovery following microneedling with PRF requires 1-2 days and results in reddish skin without peeling.

Sculptra FAQ

Sculptra® is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen. It restores volume while tightening and thickening the skin.

Sculptra® is not like a regular hyaluronic acid filler that immediately volumizes and gives visible results right away. With Sculptra®, you’ll see a natural filling effect within the first couple days, followed but a decrease in volume. At this point, the body slowly starts to produce its own collagen, re-establishing volume that has been lost over time.

As explained on the Sculptra® website, “Sculptra Aesthetic is made with biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments administered by a trained specialist. The specialist injects treatment within the deep dermis, where strands of collagen support your skin’s structure. Over time, Sculptra Aesthetic helps the body reproduce lost collagen. On average, three injection appointments are needed over a period of a few months. The number of injection appointments and the number of injections per appointment vary from person to person, depending on how much collagen has been lost.

Within three to four months, measurable benefits are typically apparent.

Up to two or three years can pass between results.

The total number of treatments varies from person to person, but three treatments spaced out over a few months are often advised.

Plan any events or holidays two weeks in advance to allow for probable bruises.

Hyaluronic acid and other gel-based fillers reduce lines by lifting the dermis area beneath wrinkles and folds. Results start to show right away and can endure for several months.

Collagen stimulators as in Sculptra, serve to rebuild the deep, underlying structure of the skin, which reduces the appearance of facial wrinkles. Results can last up to two years and develop gradually over the course of the treatment regimen (usually three injections spaced out over three to four months).
