It happened gradually. Katja noticed some deep lines developing between her eyebrows and across her forehead. She looked tired, even when she felt rested. She decided to look for a medical spa for Restylane® and BOTOX® Cosmetic injections in Orlando. "BOTOX totally got rid of the lines," she says. "I get told I look great almost every day."
- Why did you choose Dr. Gross?
I chose Dr. Gross (because) he was voted No. 1. I Googled him to make sure everything was OK and discovered everything was just fine. He's located close to where I work and very near my home. The physician assistant at Primera Plastic Surgery is the person that I go to for my BOTOX, my Restylane, and all my Fraxel® treatments. They just make you feel so comfortable. Nothing is ever pressured - they are so professional and I just feel absolutely confident when I leave there. I go to Primera every time I get treatment or a procedure done.
- What was your med spa experience like?
The experience is just so professional. The Primera Med Spa team is great. It's all about you. Nothing is ever is pressured as far as the conversation about treatment or procedure. They are just totally professional. The atmosphere is just great, awesome.
- Restylane - What to expect
Restylane ... I had gotten it to clear up the bags underneath my eyes - I looked tired all the time. I wanted to look more refreshed. I am a working mom, and I was just so unhappy with the way I looked in the morning and through the day. I got Restylane underneath my eyes and, as you can see, it's just amazing. It cleared up the tired look I had throughout the day, and now I feel like I have a confident glow.
- Fraxel® laser - What to expect
So Fraxel treated my pores. I had some big pores and some scars from acne, so the treatment for me was really to even my skin and shrink my pores. I had a few treatments, about 4 to 6 weeks between each one. The procedure is very comfortable. They made you feel like you are at a home environment. The procedure takes about 20 minutes, and the recovery was same day. I was a little bit red in the face immediately after the procedure. The treatment is not painless, but it's definitely manageable. The pain after the procedure lasts maybe an hour, and as far as downtime, there is not really any. You can easily put makeup on afterwards.
- BOTOX - What to expect
I had crow's feet on the edges of my eyes. I had lines on my face and frown lines here (points to corner of mouth). BOTOX totally got rid of that!
I also want to tell you a story comparing Primera Plastic Surgery to another plastic surgery place here in Orlando. They (the other medical facility) just kind of took me in for BOTOX and I am not sure what they used but the needle itself was totally different. I am not even sure if they gave me BOTOX! It's totally different with Primera Plastic Surgery ... they're just so professional and it really makes you want to keep coming back!
- How often do you visit Primera?
You know, I would say with my BOTOX, I visit Primera Medical Spa every 3 months. Restylane is lasting a lot longer than I thought it would! Restylane, they say, lasts about 6 months to year, but it's lasted me a little over a year now. I just got some touchup treatments only a couple of months ago.
