FAQ


Botox

What is Botox?

Botox is a toxin that relaxes muscles. The correct name is Botulinum Toxin. Botox is the brand name and toxin produced by pharmaceutical world leader Allergan. Other toxin products you may hear of include Boccoture, and Dysport.

How does it work?

The degree of relaxation is related to the amount of Botox used. This allows us to manipulate muscles to give a natural-looking eyebrow lift.

How long does it last?

You can expect results to last up to 6 months.

When will I see the effects?

Effects take place between 2–10 days

Is it painful?

The procedure is relatively safe and painless; with minimal risk when done in experienced hands.

What are the risks?

The main risk is very mild bruising. Normally no downtime is required.

What happens afterwards?

Some mild bruising may occur post-procedure, otherwise, you can live your life as normal straight away. Specific post-care instructions are provided after the procedure.

How long does it take to complete?

The procedure takes approximately 15 minutes to complete.


Dermal fillers

What are dermal fillers?

We use a filler made of hyaluronic acid. Our suppliers, Teoxane, are a Swiss-based advanced cosmetic company known for creating innovative filler products and a strong research foundation.

How do they work?

The properties of our dermal filler allow for filling of hollows or camouflaging of under-eye bags. Furthermore, by using premium products we are better able to predict the outcome of the procedure to avoid unnecessary overfilling.

What’s the procedure like?

The filler is delivered via injection. Specifically, we deploy a cannula technique (a type of blunt needle) in order to avoid bruising and potential adverse events.

Is there an allergy risk?

There is a low allergic risk.

Is it painful?

The procedure is relatively painless and safe, however, it can carry significant risk when done by inappropriately trained practitioners.

What are the risks?

Common risks include minimal bruising and swelling; far less than seen with lip fillers. Less common risks can range from infection to skin death. It is important to see a professional in order to minimise the chance of more serious complications.

How long does it take to complete?

The procedure takes approximately 20–30 minutes to complete.

How long do results last?

Results last 9 months to 18 months.

When will I see results?

Results can be seen instantly and peaking at 4 weeks.

Is there downtime?

Normally no downtime required. In extreme situations 4-5 days of downtime.
