Q. What kind of side effects can I get from Restylane injections?

Restylane injections, just like any other injection, can cause some bruising and swelling. The swelling and bruising usually lasts for a few days. We have some special techniques that we use to minimize the swelling and bruising associated with Restylane injections. More serious side effects such are possible but very rare.

Q. Can I get a discount if I need less than the whole bottle of Sculptra?

Yes! Since the Sculptra is removed from the container in which it is mixed before it is injected, the remaining Sculptra can be safely used to treat another patient.

Q. Why does Step 2 sting when I put it on my face?

Our Step 2 has 10% Glycolic Acid as the active ingredient. There are ample scientific studies that show that concentrations of Glycolic Acid less than 8% are ineffective. Many products that claim to have 10% Glycolic Acid actually have only 7% Glycolic Acid. The reason that such claims are made is bit tricky to explain. The most common stock solution of Glycolic Acid that is used in the manufacturing process is a 70% solution. It is not practical to make a stock solution of Glycolic Acid that is any greater than 70%. Most of the products that are made with Glycolic Acid that claim to contain a 10% solution of Glycolic Acid actually contain 10% of the 70 % solution, which yields just 7%. Since our product acutally has the full 10%, it is quite a bit stronger. This is why our Step 2 may cause some stinging, especially on sensitive skin.
