Frequently Asked Questions

What does the treatment involve?

Very small amounts of Botulinum Toxin are injected into the target areas using a tiny needle (insulin needle). This blocks the impulse from the nerve to the facial muscles, reducing the contractions that cause wrinkles. Following the treatment the skin over the muscles looks smooth and even. The needle used is very fine and only a tiny amount of substance is used so pain is minimal. If you have a sensitive skin we use topical anaesthetic cream (Emla) which numbs the area to be treated.

The treatment itself lasts approximately 15 minutes and you can go straight to work as there is no downtime involved.

When is the result noticeable?

The result isn’t immediate. You will start noticing a difference in approximately 4 to 5 days reaching a full effect in 2 weeks time.

How long does the result last?

The effects can last from three up to six months, depending on the organism of the individual. Clinical studies indicate that this treatment has a cumulative effect, so you should need fewer injections as time goes on.

Are there any side effects?

Only tiny amounts of Botox are used, so this treatment is not harmful. The most common side effects are temporary and localised bruising, slight redness of the skin and occasionally slight swelling at the injection site.

Post treatment advice

  • Avoid lying down immediately after the treatment.
  • No hot steaming bath just a quick shower on the day.
  • Do not massage the area after being injected.
  • No working out on the day or heavy lifting.
  • No facials for a week.
  • Avoid Aspirin and any medication which can increase risk of bruising.
  • No alcohol on the day.
  • Avoid sun beds and sunbathing for a week.
  • No constrictive head wear (tight hats hairbands etc.)

Inhaled minimal sedation

You breathe nitrous oxide — otherwise known as “laughing gas” — combined with oxygen through a mask that’s placed over your nose. The gas helps you relax. Your dentist can control the amount of sedation you receive, and the gas tends to wear off quickly. This is the only form of sedation where you may be able to drive yourself home after the procedure.

Oral sedation

For minimal sedation, you take a pill. Typically, the pill is a member of the same drug family as Valium, and it’s usually taken about an hour before the procedure. The pill will make you drowsy, although you’ll still be awake. A larger dose may be given to produce moderate sedation.

IV moderate sedation

You receive the sedative drug through a vein, so it goes to work more quickly. This method allows the dentist to continually adjust the level of sedation.
