Getting BOTOX® or other neuromodulators (muscle relaxants) Dysport or Nuceiva is a straightforward procedure involving a small number of injections. Our physician-injectors, Dr Marie-Louise Wessels and Dr Elizabeth Thompson, have over 15 years of experience. They are educated on all the latest injectable techniques for more complex treatment plans and outcomes and all the most up-to-date research. They combine their experience and skill with a natural approach, so your appearance will not be drastically altered, nor will you have a “frozen” look. You will look like yourself, just more relaxed and rejuvenated. They will assess your facial anatomy during your pre-treatment consultation and provide you with recommendations and a customised treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. This ensures that you will get the best results possible.
The procedure can be performed immediately following an initial consultation in which your face is assessed to determine whether you will benefit from BOTOX® injections, the amount of BOTOX® required, and the injection locations. Your medical history, allergies, etc., will be reviewed. After the consultation, the areas to be injected will be swabbed with antibacterial wipes. You will then be asked to frown, raise your eyebrows or squint. A few small injections will be administered via a fine micro needle to the identified muscle locations, targeted to address your specific issues directly. Our staff will ensure that you are comfortable and relaxed throughout the process. The treatment takes approximately 10-15 minutes and requires no recovery time. After receiving your treatment, you can return to your regular activity. The fine needles used typically don’t leave noticeable marks on your face. Still, some patients may experience a bit of redness or a tiny bruise at the injection site, which can easily be concealed with a light makeup application. You will see an improvement within 7-10 days, with the final results in two weeks.
BOTOX®, Dysport and Nuceiva remain effective for 3 to 4 months, after which you can return to Clear Skin Victoria to repeat the process. To maintain your improved appearance, it is recommended that you receive treatment every 3 to 4 months. However, it is completely fine to wait for longer intervals or discontinue the use at any time. If you discontinue getting your wrinkle-relaxing injections at any time, the treated area will gradually revert to how it looked before your first treatment.
As we make repeated facial expressions, such as frowning or raising our eyebrows, wrinkles are formed in our skin. Over time, these dynamic wrinkles begin to set in and become permanently etched into our faces. Wrinkle-relaxing injections can temporarily relax the muscles, so they no longer contract and form wrinkles, smoothing out the appearance.
