What is Dr. Jayaram’s Signature Nano-Droplet Botox Technique?
Dr. J employs a special strategy when administering your Botox, which aims to give you the most natural and even results. She uses several small aliquots of product rather than larger boluses, placed in anatomically strategic locations. This allows for a nice, even spread, and avoids the dreaded eyelid droop or eyebrow spock.
Does Botox hurt?
Every provider is different but Dr. J takes the time and goes the extra mile to make sure your treatment is as comfortable as possible. She uses the smallest possible needles and has you apply an ice pack prior to treatment to minimize pain.
Will I bruise?
While we can never guarantee a bruiseless treatment, Dr. J gets excellent results in her attempts to avoid bruising. Examining your forehead for visible blood vessels, using cold packs and smaller needles, and having an overall gentle touch really does minimize your risk. Additionally, if possible, being off of all blood thinning agents like aspirin, ibuprofen, Motrin, or Aleeve for about 10 days prior to your treatment greatly reduces your risk of bruising as well.
How do I know I’m getting a good treatment?
Botox is an art, not an algorithm. It should feel like your provider is customizing your treatment to you. Dr. J uses different strength concentrations of product in different areas, has you dynamically move your wrinkles prior to treating so she can mentally map out your custom plan, and keeps careful records of exactly what has and has not worked for you in the past.
How is Botox priced?
Different places will price differently. Dr. J, as well as many other board certified plastic surgeons choose to price treatments per area. This does a few things: 1. It takes away the importance of number of units and rather allows for focus to be on quality of treatment. 2. It allows for a dynamic shift of your focus as your muscles and anatomy change over time. 3. It builds in physician responsibility—I offer a completely complimentary touch up at the 7-10 day mark meaning I own my treatment, and do everything I can to nail it the first time. Botox can vary in price, but the universal truth to purchasing does apply here too—you get what you pay for—if the price seems to good to be true, it likely is, and you can likely bet that you’ll be sorry in about a week.
