  • What can I do to prepare for my procedure?
    Please come with a freshly cleaned face. Do not drink alcohol 3 days prior to treatment and 3 days following, as it increases your chances for bruising and bleeding. Discontinue the use of NSAIDS (Aspirin, Advil, Naproxen etc.) 3 days prior to treatment, unless prescribed by your doctor for a therapeutic reason. Arnica tablets or a topical preparation can help to decrease bruising. This can be purchased at health food stores.
  • What are the aftercare instructions for cosmetic injections?
    Do not massage or rub the treated area. Do not lie down for 4 hours after your Antiwrinkle treatment. No working out for 24 hours post treatment, but 48 hours is best. Dermal fillers will take 3-4 weeks to completely settle. Do not massage unless you are instructed to do so. Do not work out or expose yourself to high heat (shower, sauna, hot tub etc.) for 48 hours post treatment. A mild headache can occur after Antiwrinkle treatment. Paracetemo can be taken after treatment for pain relief or headache. Do not take NSAIDS (Aspirin, Advil, Naproxen etc.) as it will increase risk for bruising. To help decrease swelling, you can take antihistamines twice daily, and apply ice as needed for up to 3 days after treatment. Please ensure that you have a barrier in between the ice and your skin, especially the day of treatment because if you’ve been administered a numbing agent, you won’t be able to feel how cold the ice is, and may run the risk of an ice-burn Do not drink alcohol for a few days after treatment as it will increase risk for bruising.
  • What can I expect during a neuromodulator treatment?
    When it’s your first-time having treatment, we understand that it is anxiety inducing. Luckily, your nerves are probably the most uncomfortable part of the treatment. Treatment is extremely fast, and most clients rate it a 2-3/10 on the pain scale and compare it to a sensation of being pinched. Botox & Dysport are known as the “lunch time treatment” because it has no down time, and you can go back to work after a quick treatment without anyone noticing. You may be a little red 30 mins-1 hour following treatment but then it subsides.
  • What are the potential risks of using neuromodulators for antiwrinkle treatment?
    Neuromodulators work by relaxing the muscle, so we worry about relaxing a muscle too much or the wrong muscle, which is why it is so important to make sure your injector has advanced anatomical and physiological knowledge. Side effects are rare, but depending on the treatment area, you may experience heaviness of your eyebrows, eyelid ptosis (drooping), a wonky smile or dry eye. We do everything in our power to mitigate these risks by marking out your injections, our injection technique, and treating you with a conservative dose of neuromodulators. None of the side effects are permanent, and they will resolve over a couple of months.
  • How long do dermal fillers last?
    This is dependent on the area being treated and the product used. The thicker the product, the longer it generally lasts. Cheeks can last 12-24 months, lips, marionette lines, nasolabial lines, or fine lines around the mouth last 6-12 months. Of course people with higher metabolism will experience shorter filler results because they will tend to break the compound down faster.
  • How long does an antiwrinkle treatment last?
    Neuromodulators tend to last between 3-6 months, however there are many variable that may impact the longevity of treatment which include, but are not limited to, the following: 1. Your metabolism – the faster it is, the faster your body breaks down the neuromodulating compound 2. How many treatments you’ve had previously – as a general rule, after a year of treatment, you can typically go longer between treatments since it takes less effort to relax the muscles. On the same token, the first treatment will generally be the fastest to lose its effects, some even as little as 2 months, but again this can vary person to person.
  • What are the potential risks for dermal fillers?
    The most common side effects are swelling, redness, and bruising in the treatment area, and generally take 5-7 days to resolve. You may experience lumps and bumps while you’re healing but these should resolve at 3-4 weeks. If they do not resolve on their own, you should follow up with your provider. A vascular occlusion, a rare but very serious side effect can occur. This is when an artery or a vein is accidently injected with filler. This can result in serious complications, and these will be discussed during the day of your appointment. Again, these complications are very rare and are more commonly associated with high-risk areas that Room Twentyone does not perform. If a vascular occlusion were to occur, we would use a medication to dissolve the filler and restore blood flow to your tissue. We do everything in our power to mitigate these risks by understanding your anatomy, our injection technique, and understanding the signs and symptoms of a vascular occlusion.
  • What is your current cancellation policy?
    We usually ask for at least 24 hours’ notice of cancellation prior to your appointment, however, here at Room Twentyone we understand that life happens sometimes and that you may not be able to give sufficient notice. Rebooking first time round, will not incur additional fees and your deposit will be credited for your next appointment. Unfortunately, on-going non-attendance or less than 24 hours notification of cancellation for future bookings, may lead to the additional charges such as the forfeit of your deposit.
  • What areas do you NOT perform filler injections:
    As Doctors, we are trained to determine the risk-to-benefit of all procedures, and for this there are a number of areas we believe to be too high-risk or, that there are better alternative treatments available to achieve the desired outcome. These areas include: 1. Infraorbital (around the eyes) or tear-trough lines 2. Forehead 3. Temples 4. Nasal bridge 5. Nasal Augmentation
  • I’ve just had my COVID vaccine, when can I book for my procedure?
    Whilst there isn’t a lot of evidence regarding the optimal time between receiving a vaccine and having your procedure done, we do like to play it safe and recommend to not undergo any procedure 2 weeks before or post-vaccine.
