My Experience With Botox & Fillers!
Hello lovelies - The time has finally come!
I've been wanting fillers and botox for quite some time now. There has been some controversy about me getting injections in the past and I promised myself I would share my experience with the world when that day finally came.
Some of you may think "Why in the world would he share this with us". Well, that's an easy explanation! People are not educated enough on this subject. It is often frowned upon and people who decide to get injections or botox are usually judged and I think it's time to clear the air!
First off, this is not a FOREVER procedure. The Teosyal Filler (Hyaluronic Acid) can last anywhere between six to nine months (sometimes even more). This, of course, will vary on the area being injected and the person receiving the treatment.
People are quick to pass judgment and say such things as "If something goes wrong, you will look like a crazy person"... FALSE - Little do these people know that Teosyal Filler is 100% completely reversible.
For the record, this was my FIRST time getting fillers and botox. After doing my research on the product and finding the right doctor, it was time to schedule my appointment withDr. Cory Torgerson to discuss the "Automated Gentle Injections with the TEOSYAL®PEN" by Clarion Medical Technologies, an Alphaeon Company (one of Canada’s largest private medical companies).
TEOSYAL®PEN is the first cordless, motorized hyaluronic acid injection system that allows the doctors to elevate precision, with minimal discomfort and downtime for best looking results!
Everything is controlled electronically, allowing the doctor to focus on the results rather than the manual pressure required by conventional syringes. TEOSYAL®PEN has also been designed for precision in delicate areas, opening up new possibilities for our beauty regimen.
Now that you know more about the product, let's talk about my experience! See below for the full experience!
From day one, the team at Dr. Cory Torgerson's office treated me like royalty. They made sure I knew exactly what was going to happen and assured me that they were there should I have any questions.
Now, most people say that BUT at Dr. Torgerson's office, they come through with their promises. A number of emails and phone calls were made to the office with a million and one questions and every single time, Breanne and Vanessa were there to answer them all and make me feel at ease.
The day has finally arrived! I am a little nervous but very excited to see what Dr. Cory Torgerson has in store for me! I walk in to this beautiful office, It almost feels like a penthouse suite you would see in a movie. I was greeted by the lovely and always smiling Breanne. Right away, I feel very welcomed and at home. After a few minutes in the beautiful waiting room, It's time for me to meet Dr. Torgerson.
Now let's be real, I have seen all the shows where the Doctor tells you what is wrong with you and how he can fix you. This was not the case with Dr. Torgerson. The first thing Dr.Torgerson said to me was "I am not here to change how you look, we are simply going to enhance your features". I knew at that moment that I could trust him and that he had my best interest at heart.
Next it was time to see what it was that I wanted to enhance about my appearance. For those who know me, you know that I do excessive amounts of facial expressions which leads to my forehead having way too many wrinkles for my liking.
Dr. Torgerson explained that we could easily fix that by injecting a bit of botox in my forehead area. Just enough to minimize the amount of movement but not too much, he wanted to keep my natural look by allowing some movement.
Next was my lips. I was blessed to have naturally plump lips but let's be honest here, with all this media frenzy around Kylie Jenner's lips, it's natural to want them to be a little more plump! Again, Dr.Torgerson used his expertise to ensure my lips looked more plump but did not over do it. It really does take an experienced practitioner to obtain such beautiful results.
The amazing thing about the lip fillers was the fact that it was painless! Dr.Torgerson applied numbing cream on my lips for about 10-15 minutes. This gave me the feeling of being at the dentist when you can't feel your lips anymore. Once the area was numb, he began the process. While the injections are going in, there is a numbing product in the filler that reduces the feeling making the procedure that much more comfortable.
Who likes a nice contour? I DO!
We decided we would use a little filler to give me more of a contour on my cheekbones and I am happy we did, SO in love with the results! I'll be spending less time contouring now - YAY!
Last thing we did during my session was my nose. Now before we move on here, let me tell you, I had NO CLUE this procedure would be attainable with filler!! My nose was not even (you will see in the before pictures). I expressed this to Dr. Torgerson never thinking he would be able to do anything without surgery.
SURPRISE... Filler can do just the trick! He explained that by injecting a little bit of filler in the bridge area, we can obtain a straight nose. I had a hard time believing that, but hey, I had nothing to lose. I was in awe when I saw the results, could not believe it! (Take a look for yourself below!)
All in all, I am very happy with my results and my experience with the TEOSYAL®PEN by Clarion Medical Technologies and the wonderful services of Dr. Cory Torgerson and his team.
