What is Botox Cosmetic?
Botox Cosmetic is a prescription medicine designed to inject into specific muscles to temporarily reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Botox relaxes the muscles that create unattractive wrinkles by blocking motor/neuron impulses, while leaving natural and attractive facial expression intact. Interested in a personal consultation? Contact Maffi Injection Clinic today 480.505.6430.
Are Botox injections painful?
Most people do not find the procedure uncomfortable. Botox is injected into your skin in tiny amounts with ultra fine needles. It is relatively painless and fast and there is minimal discomfort and swelling when administered by certified injection specialist. In rare occasions, a patient may experience localized pain, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, and/or bleeding/bruising. Have questions? Contact Maffi Injection Clinic at 480.505.6430.
When will I notice a difference and how long will Botox results last?
In many instances, softening of lines can be seen pretty quickly, within 3-4 days. Usually you will notice wrinkles are significantly improved and your skin looks smoother within a week or two. Contact Maffi Injection Clinic to schedule a personal consultation 480.505.6430.
What is Dysport?
Dysport is a neurotoxin prescription medicine that is used for the same purposes as Botox Cosmetic. Dysport relaxes the muscles that create unattractive wrinkles by blocking motor/neuron impulses, while leaving natural and attractive facial expression intact. It is relatively painless and fast and there is minimal discomfort and swelling when administered by certified injection specialist.

Can I go workout at the gym after an injection treatment?
There is no down time for injectable treatments but avoid direct sun exposure and vigorous exercise is not recommended for 4-6 hours after a treatment. It is also recommended to keep your head upright for 4 hours to allow the product to settle into the designated areas. You can apply makeup after treatment as you normally would.

How do Facial Fillers work?
During aging, we lose collagen and elasticity in our skin, which unfortunately can cause folds and sagging. Facial fillers are selectively injected into the dermis with a fine needle. The result can be seen in 30 minutes or less, and the procedure is made comfortable with the use of lidocaine. Dermal fillers like Juvéderm, Juvéderm Voluma, Radiesse, Restaylane and Perlane are biocompatible, injectable gels that create lift and add volume to key areas of the face that show signs of aging. Contact Maffi Injection Clinic to schedule a personal consultation today at 480.505.6430.
How long do Facial Fillers last?
Facial fillers can last between 4-12 months although person’s face is different so outcome can vary. Many fillers advertise they last up to one year, but this depends on the initial amount, age of the client, desired results and the depth of the folds and wrinkles. Call to schedule a personal consultation at Maffi Injection Clinic 480.505.6430.
Do Facial Fillers cause bruising?
Any time a needle is injected into the skin, there will be a chance of bruising. To decrease your chances of bruising, it is good to avoid blood thinning agents such as ibuprofen for 1-2 weeks prior to your appointment. And remember to always consult with your doctor before changing your medications. Interested in a personal consultation? Contact Maffi Injection Clinic at 480.505.6430.
Is Sclerotherapy safe?
Sclerotherapy, a technique for getting rid of spider veins that involves injected an irritating chemical substance into the veins, which cause them to scar down and close off, is an extremely safe and well-established technique. In a short time, the veins will fade and the procedure takes just 15-30 minutes with no downtime.

What is the difference between Juvéderm Voluma and Sculptra?
Juvéderm Voluma is a hyaluronic acid filler that is used to instantly add volume to your cheek area to correct volume loss and can provide contour and a subtle lift for up to two years. Sculptra works to replace lost collagen in a series of treatments in different areas of your face. On average, two injection sessions are needed over a period of a few months and can last up to 2 years. The number of injection treatments plus the number of injections per treatment can vary based on each patient’s needs.
