Every aesthetic treatment involves certain risks and these risks should be understood. Your choice to undergo an aesthetic procedure is based on the comparison of possible risks to the potential benefits. Although vast majority of patients do not experience any adverse reactions, you must understand that these reactions may occur. Alternative forms of wrinkle management include NOT treating wrinkles with aesthetic injections. Improvement of wrinkles may be accomplished by other medical or surgical procedures such as laser, chemical peels, facials, blepharoplasty or face lift.


The informed consent documents below have been prepared to help Dr. DuBuske inform you about aesthetic injections, their risks as well as alternative treatments. It is important that you read this information carefully and completely. You will be asked to electronically sign the consent form BEFORE receiving any injections.

All aesthetic injections should be done at least one month prior to any special event such as wedding, engagement, anniversary, birthday, major holiday, or photo shoot. Bruising and swelling after injections can last up to 14 days in some cases.


Please refrain from drinking caffeine, alcohol, and taking pain medications (NSAIDS) such as ibuprofen, motrin, aspirin or advil, also vitamins, fish oil and other herbal supplements prior to your visit, to minimize the chances of bruising. Please also review “aftercare instructions” on our website.

We also encourage all of our patients to schedule a free follow-up visit to review your aesthetic results: 

  • For Botox & Dysport: 2 weeks after your initial visit

  • For fillers (lips, cheeks, chin, smile lines): 4 weeks after your initial visit
