Your appointment

First Things, First

During your first appointment, a team member will take some time to get to know you and your beauty goals. Then, we will come up with an immediate beauty plan and one for the future. This is one area we take very seriously because everyone has different goals and beauty ideals.

  Next we discuss side effects, expectations and after care tips and any questions you may have. A consent and medical history will also be filled out/discussed.

Then we take pictures, numb you up (if plausible) and start the beautification process. procedures usually take 3-20 minutes total depending on the areas treated.

After the procedure, we take some pics and off you go! 


In an ideal situation it is prudent to follow some simple guidelines before treatment that can make all the difference between a fair result or great result, by reducing some possible side effects associated with the injections.  We realize this is not always possible; however, minimizing these risks is always desirable.  

  • Patient must be in good health with no active skin infections in the areas to be treated

  • Patient should not be needle phobic

  • Avoid alcoholic beverages at least 24 hours prior to treatment. Alcohol may thin the blood which will increase the risk of bruising.  

  • Avoid anti-inflammatory / blood thinning medications ideally, for a period of two (2) weeks before treatment.  Medications and supplements such as Aspirin, Vitamin E, Ginkgo Biloba, St. John’s Wort, Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve, Vioxx, and other NSAIDS are all blood thinning and can increase the risk of bruising/swelling after injections.

  • Schedule treatment appointments at least 2 weeks prior to a special event which may be occurring, i.e., wedding, vacation, etc. etc.  It is not desirable to have a very special event occurring and be bruised from an injection which could have been avoided.


The guidelines to follow post treatment have been followed for years, and are still employed today to prevent the possible side effect of ptosis (drooping of the eyelids).  These measures should minimize the possibility of ptosis.

  • No straining, heavy lifting, vigorous exercise for 3-4 hours following treatment. It is now known that it takes the toxin approximately 2 hours to bind itself to the nerve to start its work, and because we do not want to increase circulation to that area to wash away the Botox® from where it was injected.

  • Avoid manipulation of the area for 3-4 hours following treatment. (For the same reasons listed above.)  This includes not doing a facial, peel, or microdermabrasion after treatment with Botox®.  A facial, peel, or micro-dermabrasion can be done in the same appointment only if they are done before the Botox®.

  • Facial exercises in the injected areas are recommended for 1-hour following treatment.  This is to stimulate the binding of the toxin only to the localized area.

  • It can take 2 -10 days to take full effect.  It is recommended that the patient contact the office no later than 2 weeks after treatment if desired effect was not achieved and no sooner to give the toxin time to work.


A few simple guidelines before your treatment can make a difference between a good result and a fantastic one. Patient should be in good overall health.  A full medical and dental history must be performed on all patients for optimal results.

If you develop a cold sore, blemish, or rash, etc. prior to your appointment you must reschedule.

If you have a special event or vacation coming up, schedule your treatment at least 2 weeks in advance.

Let us know if you are prone to cold sores – a preoperative medication may help prevent cold sores after treatment.

  • NO Aspirin, Motrin, Ginkgo Biloba, Garlic, Flax Oil, Cod Liver Oil, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, or any other essential fatty acids at least 3 days to 1 week before and after treatment.

  • Discontinue Retin-A two (2) days before and two (2) days after treatment.

AVOID: Alcohol, caffeine, Niacin supplement, high-sodium foods, high sugar foods, refined carbohydrates (you may eat fruit), spicy foods, and cigarettes 24-48 hours before and after your treatment 


 DO NOT:  touch, press, rub or manipulate the implanted areas for the rest of the day after treatment.  Avoid kissing, puckering and sucking movements for the rest of the day as these motor movements can undesirably displace the implanted dermal filler material. You can cause irritation, sores, and/or problems, and possible scarring if you do.

  • AVOID: Aspirin, Motrin, Ginkgo Biloba, Garlic, Flax Oil, Cod Liver Oil, Vitamin A., Vitamin E, or other essential fatty acids at least 3 days after treatment.

  • AVOID:  Alcohol, caffeine, niacin supplement, high-sodium foods, high sugar foods, refined carbohydrates (you may eat fruit), spicy foods, and cigarettes 24-48 hours after your treatment.

  • AVOID:  Vigorous exercise and sun and heat exposure for 3 days after treatment.

  • One side may heal faster than the other side.

You can expect some bruising and swelling around the areas that were injected.  Apply ice for the first hour after treatment for ten minutes on and ten minutes off. You must wait 2 weeks before any enhancements.


  • To minimize bruising avoid the following blood thinners ~3 days prior to treatment: baby aspirin, Aleve, Motrin, multivitamins, vitamin E and D, and fish oils – they can cause you to bruise more easily. Note: please consult with your prescribing physician before discontinuing any prescribed baby aspirin or blood thinners. Without clearance from your prescribing physician we will not be able to treat you.

  • Please do not drink alcohol for 7 days prior to the procedure.

  • Please do not smoke 2 days before and 2 weeks after treatment.

  • You are not a candidate for MINT Threads if you:

    • are pregnant or breastfeeding

    • are allergic to any of its ingredients

    • have acute illness or autoimmune deficiencies

    • have a bleeding disorder

    • have keloid or hypertrophic scarring

  • Do not schedule any dental work, including cleanings, 2 weeks prior to treatment.

  • We always recommend using sunscreen to protect your skin as we will not perform the treatment on sunburnt skin. Please use care when in the sun and in the days prior to your appointment.

  • It’s important not to have a bacterial or fungal infection, or an abrasion in the desired treatment area as it can spread after injection. Always inform your clinician of all medications you may be taking, as well as any changes in your medical history.


Know that it is common to feel some tugging and soreness as you move the treated area. These feelings diminish after a week or two.

  • Go back to everyday life 

  • Apply a cool compress ( in 30-minute increments over the first 24 hours to reduce swelling. Please be aware that using ice on newly injected skin, or thin and fragile skin, frostbite can occur from ice left on the skin too long. Note: do not ice over the entry point.

  • Use Arnica for bruising. The bruising will dissipate over the next 7-14 days depending on your individual healing process.

  • Sleep on your back (if possible) for the next 3-5 days to prevent movement of threads.

  • Return to your skin care program after 24 hours.

  • To manage any pain or discomfort you may take Tylenol as per recommended. Due to threads being placed in the skin, there may be discomfort and tightness in the area for several days after the procedure, this will decrease over time.


  • Do not massage the treatment area or receive a deep facial massage for the next month.

  • Do not pick at the tiny scab that will form at the entry point over the next few days.  If it itches, hydrogen peroxide on a Q-tip may be gently applied to the site

  • Do not exercise for 24 hours. This includes all strenuous workouts.

  • Do not take a shower or wash your hair for the first 24 hours. Avoid hot showers, or saunas for one week.

  • When washing your face after 24 hours, gently wash the required area with cleanser and water. Do not smoke or consume alcoholic beverages (including wine) for a week. Smoking and drinking will slow down the healing process.

  • Do not apply skin care products/makeup for 24 hours post treatment.

  • Do not apply makeup over the entry point until you see your clinician at your follow-up appointment.
