What is Botox?
Botox is a wonderful treatment for many things both cosmetic as well as medical. Here at Mélange, we treat only cosmetic concerns. Botox is the gold standard when it comes to treating fine lines and wrinkles between the brows, the “crows feet” around the eyes, and is often used in other areas as well.
How does Botox work?
Botox is both corrective AND preventive, so I generally advise clients to begin treatment sooner rather than later, to prevent the wrinkles from becoming deeper and more pronounced. We take a more conservative approach to how much is given initially because you can always add more but you can’t take it out! A 2 week follow up appointment is recommended for optimal results.
How often are Botox treatments?
Botox is typically done a minimum of 90 days apart. Some clients may get a longer lasting effect and only need treatment every 4-6 months. Your provider can best advise you.
Results typically last anywhere from three months to a year. You will need follow-up injections to help maintain your new smoother appearance. Once you know how long the results last, you can schedule your next round to make sure the fine lines and wrinkles don't reappear.
How long before the benefits of using Botox kick in?
The average length of time Botox lasts is 3 months” depending on individual metabolism. At Melange Beauty, we recommend you schedule your appointments every 90 days to maintain optimal results.
“Prevention is easier than correction”, so starting Botox before the lines get too deep is ideal. We tell our clients if they can see lines without making an expression, then it’s time to start Botox.
Results are NOT IMMEDIATE. Approximately 3-5 days after injection, you will begin to notice a gradual decrease in your ability to make the expression in the treatment area. The Botox reaches its peak effect at 14 days. This is the optimal time for any touch-ups that may be needed.
A consultation, full medical history, and written consent are required prior to injection. Consultations are complimentary!

How does Juvéderm Ultra XC work?
Juvéderm contains hyaluronic acid which replenishes moisture in the extracellular matrix which supports the dermis (skin) providing a smooth, supple texture. As we age, our bodies lose the ability to produce this critical component of the matrix, which is why Juvéderm was created to replace it. By injecting it just under the dermal layer, Juvéderm replaces this vital component of the extracellular matrix, rejuvenating skin and smoothing out lines and wrinkles. While treatments last for months, patients can have treatments repeated in as few as two weeks, although more conservative doctors recommend waiting at least six weeks.
Why should I choose Juvéderm Ultra XC?
Patients are choosing to have Juvéderm Ultra or Ultra Plus treatments instead of traditional surgical facelifts.
