ARE THEY SAFE FOR ME?
YES!! They have been available for over 20 years and can even be used in children with celebral palsy.
WILL IT POISON ME?
No, it is an approved drug that is derived from a naturally occurring bacterium. The dose used for cosmetic treatment is very small and toxicity from this is rare.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Neuromodulators (Botox) work by relaxing the muscles into which they are injected, to create a relaxed, refreshed, and smooth appearance.
HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?
Generally, after the consultation, the procedure will take approximately 15-20 minutes. Since there is no down time, this can easily be done during a lunch hour.
WILL MY FACE LOOK FROZEN?
No, we are aiming to achieve a natural, rested look, that will allow facial expression and movement, but make you look beautiful. No one will suspect that you’ve even had any treatment done. Injudicious use of neuromodulator treatment (over-dosing), has harmful long-term effects and we strive to provide quality, safe treatments.
HOW IS IT DONE?
The product is injected using a very fine needle and usually, very minor discomfort may be experienced for a few seconds.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
The product lasts up to 3 months. Regular use of this product may result in a smaller dosage required over time.
I AM GOING TO LOOK WORSE AFTER IT WEARS OFF?
Not at all!! These treatments slow the clock of aging and once the treatments are stopped, the aging process will resume as normal. However, regular use of this product will allow the muscles to relax, delaying the onset of wrinkles and aging.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The cost is $10/unit. The quantity of product used depends on the area treated and the patient. Everyone is different, but as a rough guide, the entire forehead will be approximately 25-45 units.
HOW QUICKLY DOES IT WORK?
The treatment may take up to 2 weeks to take full effect. Before that, no touch-ups should be done.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS?
Minor bruising and a slight headache may occur. These are transient and resolve with make up and Tylenol. You can get a droopy eyelid, but this is very uncommon.
