Frequently Asked Questions


Anti-Wrinkle Treatment


How does anti-wrinkle injection work?
Anti-wrinkle injection contains purified protein refined from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. By injecting the product into the muscles causing the wrinkles to appear, the muscle temporarily weakens and thereby the lines will even out.
Will I loose my facial expressions with anti-wrinkle injections?
You should still be able to show expressions after you are treated. Talk to us about your expectations.
Does it hurt?
The injection will feel like a pinch. If you experience too much discomfort we can apply numbing cream.
How long does it take?
The duration of your treatment depends on what you are having done and might be up to 45minutes to 1 hour. We want to ensure that we spend as much time needed to obtain the best results.
Can I work on the same day?
You can go back to work on the same day of your treatment but it is advisable to avoid heavy intensity exercise for 24 hours.
How long is the recovery time?
You should be able to go back to your daily routines after you have been treated. You might have some redness or slight bruising from the injection sites, which will disappear after a couple of hours. We also recommend that you don’t lie down for 3 hours and avoid rubbing the area for 48 hours after your treatment. You will be provided with aftercare advice.

You may see some results within 48 hours depending on the severity of the lines that are treated with the full effect around 2 weeks after your treatment.

Dermal Fillers


How does the dermal filler work?
The dermal filler is a synthetic material that is made up of Hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring component in your skin. They restore and create volume in folds and lines (nasolabial and marionette lines) so that they are less apparent. They can also be used to shape lips, chin and cheeks.
Does it hurt?
You might feel a pinch during the injection and some might get discomfort. If you experience too much discomfort we can apply numbing cream before treating.
How long is the recovery time?
After having received your treatment you can go back to your daily routines. You might have some redness or slight bruising from the injection sites, which will disappear after a couple of hours. Any swelling might take up to 48 hours to resolve.
When will I see the results?
You will get immediate results, however keep in mind that there might be swelling which will settle within 48 hours. The treatment will last up to 6-9 months.

After the treatment there might be swelling and redness, which resolves within 48 hours. Some might experience transient numbness in the area, mild bruising, eruption of a cold sore in the treated area and risk of infection. There is a risk of vascular occlusion with dermal fillers which can lead to skin necrosis and visual problems if injected into a blood vessel.
What conditions would pose a contraindication to using dermal fillers?
We don’t recommend dermal fillers to women who are pregnant or breast feeding, infected skin over the area to be treated, hypersensitivity to Hyaluronic acid and if you are taking Warfarin and Aspirin (check with your doctor to make sure if you can stop taking them for 7 days before your anti-wrinkle treatment).
