All it takes is just a small number of tiny injections given to the treatment area. The whole procedure is over in less then five minutes. The needles we use are the smallest available in Australia so the discomfort is minimal. If you want ice or numbing cream can be applied to minimize discomfort. The effects of anti-wrinkle injections start to take effect 2 to 3 days after and full effect can take up to 2 weeks.
The effects generally last 4 months. In the first few treatment sessions the effects can last between 3 to 4 months, but if done regularly then they last longer as the muscles progressively respond to the treatment. If you stop the injections then your wrinkles and muscles will return to normal.
You can resume normal activities straight away, but will be advised not to exercise or touch the area for 4 hours.
Anti-wrinkle injections are very safe and have been used for cosmetic procedures for over 15 years in Australia. Some common side effects include bruising, which can last 1 to 2 days. Small lumps like mosquito bites appear at the injection site, which settle in 15 minutes.
Very rarely (1%) do people respond to the injections and will get no effect.
