How The Process Goes
The Injection Process
After removing any makeup and washing your face, the areas where injections are to be administered will be marked and sanitized. A sequence of speedy and practically painless injections will be introduced into the muscles within the treatment zone. This usually takes no more than 20 minutes from initiation to completion. Post-treatment, you can return to most of your regular activities without any interferance.
These types of injectables are commonly known as “lunchtime treatments” due to their quick application, allowing patients to schedule appointments during lunch breaks conveniently. Although no recovery time is needed, it’s crucial to take extra care in protecting the treatment areas for optimal outcomes. While some individuals may not exhibit any visible indications of injection immediately following the procedure, others might experience slight swelling that resembles insect bites for approximately 20-60 minutes and lasts a few hours after injection.
After your treatment, you’ll receive instructions on taking care of your skin and what to steer clear of to guarantee optimal results. These guidelines must be adhered to for only 24-48 hours (roughly two days) prior to resuming regular activities.
Once you receive your injections, it will take a few days to see positive improvements in the appearance of your wrinkles. You will see the most noticeable results within three to five days, and the best results will be most evident two weeks post-treatment.
How long do the results last? On average, results will last anywhere from three months. Your body will determine how long your results last, and once it fully metabolizes the ingredients in the injectable used during your treatment, you will see your wrinkles slowly reappear with increased movement. When that begins to happen, you will know that it is time for a follow-up treatment to maintain your wrinkle-free skin long-term.
