Preguntas frecuentes

1. How does BOTOX treatment work?
Those moderate to severe frown lines between your brows form over time as the result of muscle activity. That’s why we inject directly into the muscles between your brows. It treatment then works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles; this reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those persistent lines to form.
2. When will I see results from a BOTOX treatment?
Within days of receiving your injections, you may see a marked improvement in the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows. Lines continue to improve for up to a month, and results can last for up to 6 months.

4. Who should not use BOTOX the treatment?
The treatment should not be used in the presence of infection at the proposed injection site(s) and in individuals with known hypersensitivity to any ingredient in the formulation. Patients with neurological disorders such as ALS, Myasthenia Gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome may be at increased risk of serious side effects.
5. Will my facial expressions continue to look natural?
Although the results are visible, a treatment will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is simply reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
6. Dermal Fillers side effects
Fortunately, the composition of Juvederm means it is much smoother to inject into the skin than some similar products. There is likely to be some pain and tenderness during the treatment, though this is generally mild and will usually be dealt with by a local anaesthetic. After the treatment, it is possible there will be some short term swelling or bruising. When this does happen, it generally fades away within a week. Dermal fillers are not suitable for people with severe allergies or anaphalyxis. Staff carrying out the treatment should consult with patients to discuss potential risks before going ahead with the procedure.
7. Microdermanrasion side effects
The only real side effect is possible temporary redness of the skin, which soon fades. Aside from this there are no medical concerns, though diabetic people will need to check their blood sugar levels are at normal levels before the treatment starts.
8. How will I feel during Microdermabrasion facial treatment?
Microdermabrasion is a comfortable and painless procedure; the smooth microcrystal’s we use do not cause any unpleasant sensations.
9. Is Microdermabrasion the right treatment for me?
Microdermabrasion facial can be used to improve a whole range of skin conditions, including fine lines, acne scars, stretch marks, age spots, enlarged pores, dry and flaky skin, pigmentation and sun damage.
10. PRP treatment procedure and side effects
Before treatment, a local or topical anaesthesia cream is typically applied to numb the area. Treatment, which lasts around 40 minutes in total, involves taking vials (about 8ml to 16ml each) of blood from the patient. This is spun in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the red blood cells. Depending on the size of the area to be treated, as many as six vials may be taken. The patient's PRP is then injected intra and subdermally into the treatment area. The procedure is relatively quick, with minor discomfort. Patients are told to expect a degree of redness, swelling and minor bruising, but this usually subsides within a day. If more significant bruising occurs, it may take a week to 10 days to fade.
11. How long do PRP results last?
Because the natural healing process takes time, results appear gradually and become apparent over a four to six-week period. Maximum collagen development generally occurs between four and six months. Regen PRP can be a one-off procedure but several treatments spaced a month apart may be required to achieve desired results. The patient can expect to see ongoing changes and improvement in the skin for between 12 and 18 months. Patients are typically advised to return for a maintenance treatment every 12 months.
