Frequently Asked Questions
If I want to find out about what can be done about my skin problem, how do I go about making an appointment?
We invite you to book a complimentary consultation with Dr. Shehla Ebrahim. At that time you can discuss your skin conditions and she will make recommendations on a treatment and give you details about the procedure and the cost.
How much does a consultation cost?
Consultations are complimentary. We require a credit card number to reserve the appointment. If you must cancel or change your appointment a minimum of 24 hour notice is required. Only if you do not cancel in advance or fail to show up for your consultation, will you be charged $50 plus GST.
What form of payment do you take?
We accept cash, Debit, MasterCard and Visa credit cards.
I’m looking at getting some Botox®. Am I going to be all red and puffy after I get it and should I take some time off work?
No, there will be no visible change in your appearance after receiving Botox® Cosmetic and it is unlikely that you will get any bruising. The results from Botox® injections generally take 4 to 7 days.
Does it hurt getting Botox® injections?
There is very little discomfort with Botox® injections. A very small insulin needle is used for the injection after the area is iced.
How long does Botox® Cosmetic last?
The effects of Botox® will last between 3 to 4 months.
How long does dermal filler last?
The effects of dermal filler last between 9 months and a year. Generally we say 9 months, but it can be longer if it is added to an area that is not very expressive, thus has less movement.
I heard fillers really hurt, is that true?
There is a bit more discomfort with dermal injections but nothing significant. If you are sensitive, we can apply numbing cream to the area that is being treated and use a filler that has lidocaine in it. There can be some bruising after receiving dermal fillers.
