Treatment longevity will depend on the type of treatment, patient metabolism, and product choice and dosing. We will generally explain this in detail during your appointment.
Generally speaking, the results from neuromodulator treatments like BOTOX® can last three to six months. Most of our patients enjoy results from maintenance treatments every three months, whereas some will wait a little longer between treatments.
The results from dermal filler treatments will generally last longer, anywhere from 6-18 months. The longevity of treatment will depend on the location of filler, individual metabolism, and the type of filler used.

This is variable and completely up to the patient. In our experience, the age that one should start cosmetic treatments depends more on anatomy, genetics, and environmental exposure than it is about age.
In the world of facial rejuvenation, age is truly just a number. Some clients start in their early 20’s and they already have wrinkles and lines whereas some start in their 40’s, and they still do not have significant facial aging or volume loss.
Moreover, we work with many clients to enhance areas like lips, cheeks, chin, nose, and jawline to help them feel more confident. It is important that our clients understand the treatment options available to them. And we make sure this is an integral part of our consultation process.
We encourage our clients to book a consultation to explore the different options available. Feel free to reach out to us for any further questions.
Yes and no. A cosmetically elegant result will leave you looking refreshed, more cheerful and perhaps younger. We are careful to deliver natural results so that patients continue to look themselves and completely natural.
Often times there are signs that someone recently had neuromodulator or filler treatment, such as a smooth forehead, reduced crow’s feet, or less facial lines and wrinkles. The effect of these treatments can be tailored depending on personal preference. You can certainly opt for more natural look if preferred.
It is also important to keep in mind that as long as you are happy with the results, it shouldn’t matter if your friends, family, or strangers can tell the difference. As we say to our family and friends at Sparrow MD, share the love!
