What cosmetic services doing you offer in your office?

We offer a wide range of services ranging from education on how to prevent and reverse some of the signs of sun damage and aging, most of the injectables that are available and approved in USA, many different types and levels of chemical peels, leg vein injections for spider and varicose veins and laser resurfacing.

Which injectables do you use and which do you prefer?

We use All of the Restylane family of products, Radiesse, Belotero, Juvederm products and all of the neurotoxins(Botox, Dysport, Xeomin). Dr. Herzog uses much more Dysport and Xeomin , as opposed to Botox, because feels that they are all equivalent in function and can get you better pricing on the Dysport and Xeomin. Choice of fillers is based on what your need is. Restylane Kysse is our new favorite for lips and Dr Herzog loves injecting lips.

Do you charge for a consultation?

We charge $75 for consultation but that will be deducted from any procedure or product purchase that you make so consultations usually free.

Are there any specials and how do I find out about them?

Our vendors almost always have something going on to earn your loyalty. Be sure to get us your email so we can have you on our list and follow us on our facebook (Dr Jo Lynne Herzog) and instagram (drjolynneherzog). We will always do our best to get you the best for your hard earned dollars.

How long will my injections last?

In general, Botox, Dysport, Xeomin and other neuromodulators last from 3-4 months. Sometimes a heavier injection will last a little longer but too much does increase risk of side effects. The fillers all last different amount of time depending on patient and the product. You should discuss with Dr. Herzog when making choices.

What are complications that I should be concerned with when getting injectables?

Anyone can get a bruise. Some people bruise more than others but there are products that increase chances of bruising and things that can help prevent.
Supplements like fish oil, ginkgo , ginger, garlic, ginseng, aspirin, headache powders, blood thinners , alcohol, etc. all can increase chance of bruising while some don't bruise regardless. I recommend stopping anything that your doctor did not prescribe for a week before injection. Eating a cup of fresh pineapple a day and taking vitamin C, for five days prior, might decrease chance of bruising. Neuromodulators can cause brow or lid droop so it is important for doctor to use these carefully to avoid any problems although in best situation these things can happen. Too much in forehead can lower the brow so we sometimes must compromise and keep a few wrinkles. Lid drops are luckily rare but can happen

Is there down time?

There is no down time with injectables. It is possible to have a bruise but nothing that should stop daily activities. With deeper peels and laser you do get significant redness and peeling so do need to consider that when planning those.

What about pain?

Everyone has different threshold for "pain" But: Neuromodulators take only a few minutes and are small needle sticks, more of a small discomfort than pain. We give you ice prior as does make you more comfortable. For other injectables we use numbing cream prior to injection and most people are not very bothered by facial injections. Lips are more sensitive but we do not recommend dental blocks as that alters the way you move and does effect final result.
