Following a consultation with our Aesthetic Nurse practitioner or you will be assessed and advised of the most suitable treatment for you. Treatment can take as little as 30 minutes and you will be able to return to normal activities immediately afterwards. The smoothing effects of the first treatment typically lasts for up to 3-4 months. You will need to return for regular 3 monthly treatments during the first year as the optimum results are obtained if the next treatment is performed before the effects of the previous treatment has worn off.
With repeated treatments the relaxed and softened effects will last longer. Following treatment, you will be given an after-care sheet. We will also keep in touch to discuss your treatment plan and remind you when your next treatment is due.
Side effects, if they occur are usually temporary and mild to moderate, and are typically linked to the injections e.g. pain on injection, redness, swelling etc. In very rare cases, the spread of botulinum toxin into nearby muscles is possible when high doses are injected, hence the need to see a specialist in this field. Botulinum Toxin top ups and the free post treatment follow ups are only available within two weeks of the original treatment and are at the discretion of the aesthetic practitioner
