Botox injections are typically completed within 15 to 30 minutes, allowing most patients to resume their regular activities, including work, immediately after the procedure. Muscle spasms can occasionally occur as a rare side effect of Botox.

How Long Does Botox Last For?

The effects of a solitary Botox injection typically endure for a period of 3 to 6 months.


What is Botox?

Botox is a purified non-animal protein approved by the FDA and Health Canada, which effectively relaxes specific facial muscles involved in expressions. The areas most frequently treated include the spaces between the eyebrows (frown lines), the corners of the eyes (crow's feet), and the forehead (worry lines).

Understanding Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are non-surgical injections designed to address a wide range of aesthetic facial concerns. These injections are administered just beneath the skin, and there are several types available.

Our Range of Dermal Fillers

At 1st Care Med Spa, we offer a diverse selection of dermal fillers to cater to your specific needs:

  • Juvederm: A hyaluronic acid sugar gel polymer used for facial contouring.

  • Restylane: Ideal for facial contour augmentation, lip enhancement, and adding facial volume.

  • Revanesse: Utilizes hyaluronic acid for treatment.

  • Teosyal: Features high-concentration cross-linked HA for lasting results.

  • Volumalift: A soft tissue filler injection to replace lost facial fat.

  • 5 Minute Nose Job: A non-surgical alternative for reshaping the nose.

  • Lip Augmentation: Non-surgical lip enhancement using various brands like Revanesse, Restylane, Perlane, or Juvederm.

  • Radiesse: A particulate stimulant dermal filler.

  • Sculptra: A biostimulant containing poly-L-lactic acid to stimulate collagen production.

Recovery and Treatment Duration

Typically, recovery lasts for one to two days, allowing you to return to your daily activities immediately after your dermal filler treatment. In fact, it's often referred to as a "lunch hour treatment" because of its minimal downtime.

Treatment Duration

The time required for your treatment can vary depending on your chosen technique, aesthetic objectives, and the size of the treatment area. However, on average, the procedure takes less than an hour.

Who Is a Suitable Candidate?

Your eligibility for dermal fillers will be determined during your consultation. However, to assess your suitability in advance, you should:

  • Have realistic expectations and a positive mindset.

  • Be free from underlying health conditions that may affect healing.

  • Consider quitting smoking before treatment to prevent future deep wrinkles.

Risks and Side Effects

Most risks associated with dermal fillers are rare, especially when administered by experienced professionals like our team at 1st Care Med Spa. Some potential side effects include bruising, redness, swelling, pain, tenderness, and itching, but these usually subside within a day or two.

Preparing for Your Dermal Filler Treatment

To minimize the risk of bruising, swelling, and redness in the treatment area, it's advisable to:

  • Avoid over-the-counter blood-thinning medications, such as Ibuprofen.

  • Refrain from taking supplements without your surgeon's approval.

  • Steer clear of topical products like retinol or anti-aging products.

  • Avoid any form of hair removal in the treatment area two days before your filler treatment.

  • Abstain from alcohol consumption 24 hours prior to the procedure.

Be sure to inform your surgeon if you have a history of cold sores, neurological disorders, allergies to filler ingredients, or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.


What Is the Cost of Dermal Fillers?

The price of dermal fillers can vary, as there are different types to choose from. During your consultation at 1st Care Med Spa, you'll have the opportunity to discuss various dermal filler options, taking into account your budget and the aesthetic goals you want to achieve.


Radiofrequency PRP

  1. PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma): PRP is a natural substance derived from the patient's blood. It contains a concentrated amount of platelets and growth factors, which play a crucial role in tissue repair, collagen production, and overall skin rejuvenation.

  2. Radiofrequency (RF) Technology: RF is a non-invasive energy-based technology that uses radio waves to generate heat in the deeper layers of the skin. This controlled heating stimulates collagen production and tightens loose or sagging skin.

  3. Procedure: RF PRP treatment typically involves the following steps:

    • Blood Collection: A small amount of the patient's blood is drawn, similar to a standard blood test.

    • PRP Extraction: The collected blood is then processed in a centrifuge to separate the PRP from other components.

    • RF Application: A specialized RF device is used to deliver controlled heat energy to the treatment area. The RF energy is applied to the skin's surface or delivered through micro-needles, depending on the specific technology used.

    • PRP Application: The extracted PRP is either applied topically to the skin or injected into the treatment area.

    • Combination Effect: The combination of RF and PRP synergistically enhances the skin's natural healing response, promoting collagen production and tissue rejuvenation.

  4. Areas of Application:

    • Facial Rejuvenation: RF PRP treatment is commonly used to address signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and uneven texture on the face.

    • Acne Scarring: It can improve the appearance of acne scars by stimulating collagen production and tissue remodeling.

    • Hair Restoration: RF PRP is used to promote hair growth and improve hair thickness in individuals with hair loss or thinning.

    • Skin Tightening: RF PRP can tighten loose skin on the face, neck, and body, resulting in a firmer and more youthful appearance.

  5. Mechanism of Action: RF energy generates heat in the skin's deeper layers, which stimulates collagen production. The addition of PRP enhances this process by providing growth factors that further promote tissue regeneration and healing. The combined effect is improved skin texture, reduced wrinkles, and increased skin tightness.

  6. Results: Patients typically experience gradual improvements in skin texture and tightness over several weeks to months following RF PRP treatment. The results are long-lasting, and maintenance treatments may be recommended to prolong the benefits.

  7. Safety: RF PRP treatment is considered safe when performed by trained and experienced medical professionals. The use of the patient's blood minimizes the risk of allergic reactions or adverse effects.

  8. Downtime: RF PRP treatment typically involves minimal downtime, with mild redness, swelling, and discomfort at the treatment site. Patients can usually resume their regular activities shortly after the procedure.

  9. Number of Sessions: The number of RF PRP sessions required varies depending on individual goals and the condition being treated. Multiple sessions are often recommended for optimal results.

  10. Maintenance: To maintain the results, periodic RF PRP treatments may be advised, particularly in the case of facial rejuvenation and hair restoration.

RF PRP treatment offers a non-surgical and natural approach to address various cosmetic concerns, resulting in improved skin texture, tighter skin, and overall rejuvenation. Consultation with a qualified healthcare provider is essential to determine if RF PRP treatment is suitable for your specific needs and goals.


Radiofrequency (RF) PRP treatment is a combination therapy that combines Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) with Radiofrequency technology to address various cosmetic and dermatological concerns. This innovative approach combines the regenerative benefits of PRP with the skin-tightening and rejuvenating effects of RF energy. Here's an explanation of RF PRP treatment:
