Now all patients receive an ice pack to take home after any injectable treatment such as Botox, Juvederm, and Voluma, compliments of A E Skin. At A E Skin our mission is to deliver incredible results by exceeding our patients' expectations while ensuring their safety and providing outstanding service. In this light, we want to minimize the risk of any potential side effects after our treatments. Injectable procedures such as Botox, Juvederm, and Voluma have certain risks associated with them. Any time a needle is injected into the skin there is the risk for pain, bleeding, bruising, and swelling. Application of cold compresses minimizes these risks. We want our patients to be as comfortable as possible and we minimize pain during our treatments. With fillers such as Juvederm and Voluma we apply numbing cream for 15 minutes prior to the treatment and with our Botox treatments we apply cold air to the treatment area. Cold air numbs the area and serves as a distraction to decrease the pain. At the same time, it causes less blood to come to the area, minimizing the risks of bleeding, bruising, and swelling during the treatment. Application of cold compresses such as ice packs after the treatment will decrease the blood flow to the area, minimizing any possible bruising or swelling. At A E Skin we understand that our patients want effective treatments without down time so that they can resume their normal activities as soon as possible. For this reason, we have made the investment to provide free ice packs to our patients receiving Botox, Juvederm, or Voluma so they have the best experience. Since we are always trying to improve, we welcome all suggestions. Contact us with your feedback or to schedule a free consultation with Dr. Alex for Botox, Juvederm, or Voluma.
