Reducing Wrinkles

What areas can be treated?
Upper face including crow’s feet, forehead and frown lines.

What does the treatment feel like?
The treatment will sting a little. The discomfort is bearable and doesn’t last very long. After the treatment, you may feel a slight tight sensation or a feeling of heaviness in the treated area, which will subside in 1 to 2 weeks.

What are the possible side effects/risks?

With the quantities used for the treatment of upper facial lines, the side effects are usually temporary and localised to the area of treatment, including bruising, tenderness, skin tightness, swelling or redness, which may last up to 1 week. Other possible side effects include headaches, nausea or flu-like symptoms. In rare cases, there may be a slight and temporary drooping of an eyelid or eyebrow, due to local muscle weakness, lasting 3-4 weeks.

Is there any post treatment care?

  • Avoid lying down for 3 to 4 hours post treatment as this prevents tracking or migration of the product.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours.
  • Avoid vigorous facial cleaning and do not rub/massage the area injected for 24 hours.
  • Do not receive facials and/or laser treatments for 2 weeks.

What can I expect regarding results?
Whilst results will vary from client to client, on average 5 to 7 days to see results but optimal results may take up to 2 weeks. If the desired result is not seen after 2 weeks, you may need additional treatment. Results typically last between 3 to 4 months. This varies depending on your body’s metabolism.

Restoring Volume

What does the treatment feel like?
Depending on the area being treated, you may feel a sting or slight discomfort and feel pressure, but this typically lasts no longer than 30 seconds.

What are the possible side effects/risks?
Side effects generally include swelling, bruising and redness at the treatment site. Temporary pain, firmness, lumps, itching and discolouration can also occur, although rarely seen. Treatment areas can feel lumpy for up to 4 weeks post treatment. In the vast majority of cases, any effects are temporary and should resolve within a week.

Is there any post treatment care?

  • Immediately following treatment, apply ice as necessary to help minimise swelling and bruising. 
  • If lips have been treated, avoid hot drinks until the local anaesthetic wears off, as any numbness may prevent you from feeling how hot the drink is, and from spilling as you try to drink. Hot drinks and food can also impact the swelling subsiding.
  • If lips have been treated, avoid kissing and don’t use straws for drinking for 2 days. 
  • Try and keep the area free of cosmetics for 2 to 4 hours.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours following treatment. 
  • Avoid excessive sun exposure and apply sunscreen as needed. 
  • Areas treated can feel quite tender and ache for a few days, you may take paracetamol to ease discomfort. 
  • Take Arnica orally or apply topically to help minimise bruising and swelling.
  • Try to sleep on your back for a few days.
  • Drink plenty of water over the next few weeks.
  • Be careful of pressure to treated areas for 4 weeks ie: no lying face down in massage chairs and avoid heavy sunglasses or goggles.
  • Do not massage, have facials or laser treatments around treated areas for 4 weeks

What results can I expect?
Results are immediate. Results typically last between 6 to 12 months. This varies depending on your body’s metabolism.

Our experienced nurses are trained in producing quality natural results, leaving you with a fresh, youthful complexion and glowing with confidence!
