If I want to find out about what can be done about my skin problem, how do I go about making an appointment?

How much does a consultation cost?
Consultations are complimentary. We require a credit card number to hold the reservation, and require a 24 hour notice if you must cancel or change your reservation. Only if you do not cancel and fail to show up for your consultation, will you be charged $50.
What form of payment do you take?
We accept cash, debit, mastercard and visa credit cards. In special circumstances and if approved by Dr. Ebrahim, we will set up a payment plan of 50%payment at time of treatment, 25% after one month, and the balance of 25% after two months. This must be approved prior to treatment
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 and it is unlikely that you will get any bruising. The results from Botox generally take 4 to 7 days.
Does it hurt getting Botox?
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 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 month, 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.
