Facial Treatments FAQ
What is Botulinum Toxin or Botox?
Botulinum Toxin (BTX) has been used for over 25 years and is a type of purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. It is very safe and is injected directly into facial muscles in very tiny amounts during treatment.
How does it work?
Botulinum Toxin (BTX) works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the facial muscles that have been injected. This makes the muscles less active and therefore softens and smoothes the appearance of persistent lines and wrinkles.
How many treatments will I need?
In most cases patients can see a real difference after one treatment. This is because Botulinum Toxin (BTX) works gradually, smoothing and softening lines and wrinkles for up to 4 months. Every face is unique of course and we’ll advise you on how many treatments you’re likely to need and how often, depending on the results you‘d like to achieve.
How long does Botulinum Toxin (BTX) work for?
The effect of Botulinum Toxin (BTX) often last up to 4 months depending on the patient. If you decide to stop treatment, any permanent lines and wrinkles will gradually return.
Is the treatment painful?
It’s very rare for treatment with Botulinum Toxin (BTX) to be painful. Most patients experience a feeling of slight discomfort if at all during the treatment itself but that’s all. Rest assured we will talk you through what to expect before your first injection, so you’ll be fully prepared prior to treatment.
I’m worried that I’ll end up with “trout pout”?
Rest assured following an extensive assessment we will aim to meet your expectations being mindful not to over-contour the lips. In this way, we avoid over bulking out of this sensitive area.
Can I go back to work after the procedure?
With BTX injections at worst you will have a little redness which will subside after a few hours. Following Dermal Filler injections of the mouth area or nose to mouth area you may experience temporary mild bruising and swelling so, in fact, you may decide not to return to work that day.
