These treatments should be enhancing, subtle (like Baby Botox) and keep everyone guessing why you look so well. When you entrust something as precious as your face to someone, you’ll want to know that you’re in the best, safest hands.

Anti-Wrinkle Injection Pre-Treatment Instructions:
  • To avoid bruising it is best not to take any pain relievers that are blood thinners such as aspirin or Vitamin E.
  • Do not use muscle relaxants if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, are allergic to any of its ingredients, or suffer from any neurological disorders. Please inform me if you have any questions about this prior to the procedure.
  • Sunburned skin is difficult to treat so avoid exposure to the sun.
  • Avoid waxing, bleaching, tweezing, or the use of hair removal cream on the area to be treated.
  • Avoid the use of Alpha Hydroxy Acids higher than 10% and avoid Retinoids.
  • Inform me if you have a history of perioral herpes or need to receive advice on antiviral therapy prior to treatment.
  • Please inform me of all medications you may be taking as well as your medical history.
Anti-Wrinkle Injection Post-Treatment Instructions:
  • You may have bruises in the areas treated with Muscle Relaxants. This is normal. It will take up to two weeks for you to experience the full effect of the Muscle Relaxant treatment. Remain patient. It takes time for the muscles to lose strength and the lines to fade following Muscle Relaxants treatments. Movement of lines diminished is OK. The objective of the Muscle Relaxants treatment is to improve the appearance of the lines, not necessarily paralyze the muscle. If I can achieve the improvement of the lines without complete paralysis in the area then you benefit from continued use of subtle facial expression in that area of your face.
  • It is best to try to exercise your treated muscles for 1-2 hours after treatment (e.g. practice frowning, raising your eyebrows, or squinting). This helps to work Muscle Relaxants into your muscles. Although thought to help, it will NOT impact your treatment negatively if you forget to do this.
  • Do NOT rub or massage the treated areas for 4 hours after your treatment.
  • Do NOT practice Yoga or any type of strenuous exercise for 24 hours after treatment. This will minimize the risk of raising your blood pressure and therefore minimize the risk of temporary bruising.
  • Avoid facials for two weeks after your treatment. Feel free to shower and go about most other regular daily activities.
  • Do NOT lie down for 4 hours after treatment. This is to avoid the risk of pressure on the treated areas (from your pillow) and to avoid the risk of having the area rubbed accidentally.
  • Be assured that any tiny bumps or marks will go away within a few hours. If you need to apply make-up within 4 hours after your treatment, only use a gentle touch to avoid rubbing the treated area.
  • Avoid alcohol for a few days after treatment since it is a blood thinner.
  • Results of your treatment may take up to 14 days to take full effect. Please wait until the 14 days has passed before assessing if you are pleased with the result.
Anti-Wrinkle Injection Possible Side Effects:
  • The intensity and duration of your side effects depends on the treatment aggressiveness and your individual healing characteristics, but usually can last up to a week after treatment.
  • Stinging: Some patients develop stinging at the injection site for 10-15 minutes following treatment
  • Swelling, Tenderness, Headache: Some patients experience some swelling or tenderness at the injection site but these are short term effects and won’t last long.
  • Redness/Bruising: You may apply makeup immediately after treatment to minimize the redness.
  • Ptosis is a possible side effect. This is a mild weakness or paralysis of the eyelid or brow that causes it to droop. This is uncommon and is generally caused by an inadequate injection technique.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call me on 07769692710.
