I really wanted to feel only outside the way I felt only inside. I was tired of having weary lines. I was tired of looking like I was sad when I really wasn’t and that Dr. Sax was very, very gentle and explained that he would be thorough and professional and at the same time he would make sure that I was happy.
He never did anything without asking me. However, I will tell you that after I had visited him a few times I stopped telling him what to do and what I wanted because I realized that he could do a much better job of diagnosing that than I ever could.
What was the procedure like?
So for that all I did was Botox, but then Dr. Sax and I talked about it and we discussed fillers and the first time that I did fillers I was frightened as anyone with the something new and different, but there was nothing to it. Both of these procedures, the filers and the Botox honestly can be done on your lunch hour. There is very, very little downtime and from my experience I had no bruising at all from the Botox and very, very little bruising from the JUVÉDERM fillers.
And as far as pain goes there it was not existent; very, very little and the staff is wonderful. They make sure you are very comfortable and I cannot recommend him highly enough.
What was recovery like?
There is a procedure that Dr. Sax recently did for me, which is called the photo facial and what that did is got rid of in one visit with no pain at all. All of the age marks, all of the fraxels, of the discoloration that might my poor fragile skin had endured over the years. I grew up as many women did in the ’70s where sunscreen was just virtually not existent and after several blistering sunbirds and more fraxels than I can could count now they are at *bay*[0:01:23] and I am very, very happy with that.
Recovery is nothing. It’s really nothing. A little ice if it swells. Just a little bit at the injection sides and that takes care of it.
Would you recommend Dr. Sax?
Second of all, his staff is absolutely amazing. I have never encountered a more caring professional staff. I never have felt rushed in his office. I have never felt that he didn’t have time to talk to me and it’s just a wonderful professional place and what they did a bit ago which I am delighted to say is they opened a spa next-door and they have wonderful facials. They have, again, a very caring professional staff, but as with any dermatologist I originally went to Dr. Sax, because I had skin cancer and he is the one took care of multiple, multiple instances of skin cancer with me with very little scaring, which I don’t think many dermatologist could do because I have extremely fair, fragile skin and he respects that and knows how to deal with it.
