BOTOX

How do Neurotoxins work?

Neurotoxins work by relaxing the muscle used to make expressions that form wrinkles between the brows, the forehead, and around the eyes.

Will BOTOX® Cosmetic make me look like I’ve had work done?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy. It is important to talk to your specialist about the results you want from treatment.

When will I see BOTOX® results?

You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.

Do men receive BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment?

Yes. BOTOX® Cosmetic has also been clinically evaluated in male patients. In clinical studies for moderate to severe frown lines, 17.5% of patients treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic were men. In the clinical studies for moderate to severe crow’s feet, male patients comprised approximately 10% of patients treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic.

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 10% of all cosmetic procedures performed in the United States in 2014 were on men—that is more than 1 million cosmetic procedures. The number of cosmetic procedures for men increased by 273% from 1997 to 2014.


DERMAL FILLERS

How do I know which Dermal Filler is right for me?

Dermal Filler treatments are unique and tailored to each individual. Upon evaluation with one of our specialists, we will determine which Dermal Filler is best for you to give you your desired results.

How do they work?

By introducing a HA under the skin, volume which has been lost through ageing will re-appear creating a smoother, youthful appearance. The HA will attract water to it further bringing hydration to the area leading to fresh, revitalized skin.

Who can’t have Dermal Filler Injections? 

Anyone with a previous allergic reaction to a Dermal Filler or someone with a allergy to Lidocain (often added to fillers for the comfort of client).  Pregnant or breast feeding mothers are also contraindicated to treatment.
What should I do after treatment? 
Following your treatment you can expect some local swelling and maybe bruising, a cold compress may help ease this, and arnica cream may be recommended to encourage the bruise to come out.  It is often asked that you avoid any vigorous exercise or sun exposure for 24-48hrs.  Some medications may be better avoided to ensure optimum healing too.  All this information will be given to you in more detail both verbally and in writing during your treatment.
