FAQs about Your Bense SurgiSpa Consultation

What is the difference between Botox and Filler?
Botox helps to relax the muscle blocking the strength of the signal from the nerve to the muscle which creates a smoother and more relaxed look and Tissue Filler gives volume to an area by filling or plumping the wrinkles or deep depressions.

What can be done about sun damage?
We have several treatments that address damage caused by the sun.

ProFractional Skin Resurfacing is a quick and comfortable treatment use to improve the overall look of your skin, by pinpointing areas of the skin. This targets sun spots on your skin as a result of sun damage. Find out more.

You should always remember to wear sunscreen to minimize the damage caused by the sun. Your skin will benefit from looking younger and healthier.

Will it be obvious I had work done?
Absolutely not! Our goal here at Bense SurgiSpa is to give you a natural look. We ask our clients to return for a 2 week follow-up appointment so we can assess your results. We feel that it is best to treat conservatively and have you return for further treatments, as necessary or directed. We would never want to over treat an area, leaving the patient waiting for the effect to wear off.

Whether you decide to tell your friends and family is a personal choice. Many of our clients tell us they received compliments about how well-rested or relaxed they looked.

Do you offer treatment packages?
In the way of treatment packages, we offer Laser Hair Removal and IPL treatments.

Laser Hair Removal is a permanent way to reduce unwanted hair. We offer three different types of Laser Hair Removal: Prowave, GentleLase, and CoolGlide Lasers. You can find out more about Laser Hair Removal here. A consultation with our staff will allow us to determine which one will work best for you.

Aside from these treatment packages, we offer various promotions throughout the year. Keep up with our latest promotions here.
