Composed of a naturally-occurring protein that is injected using a very fine needle into wrinkle forming facial muscles. Over time the solution injected will disrupt the transmission of signals from nerve to muscle, causing the muscle to relax, resulting in a smoother appearance to the overlying skin.
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure only takes about 10 minutes and the discomfort is minimal and brief – many refer to it as a sharp scratch.
Are there any side effects?
It is important to remember that we are injecting these solutions into the skin, therefore minor side effects such as redness, bruising and swelling can occur yet only last a few days.
How long until I see results?
It normally takes about 2-7 days to notice the effects of the treatment beginning, and 14 days for the full results to be visibly seen. Results last approximately 3-4 months depending on the individual. During this time the result will usually wear off, slowly allowing expression lines to gradually return to their original appearance.
