What is Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Filler?
Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that occurs naturally in the human body and is central to regulating cell growth and renewal.
We offer Allergan & Galderma Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers.
These dermal fillers are an injectable gel which is colorless hyaluronic acid gel that contains a small quantity of local anesthetic (lidocaine).
These fillers are injected into facial tissue to smooth wrinkles. and folds, especially around the nose and mouth by one of our Aesthetic Nurses.
Can I go to the Gym after my Botox or Dysport Treatment?
We instruct our clients to NOT go to the gym within 2 hours prior to their scheduled appointment nor afterwards due to potential complications.
Exercise increases circulation in our bodies, which includes the face, hence why your face flushes or gets red when you work out.
The increased circulation increases the risk that the Botox or Dysport will move away from the injection site before it's fully absorbed.
We do not want our client's to do anything that increases the risk that the Botox or Dysport will move anywhere that is not intended which could cause ptosis of the eye and/or eyebrow also known as drooping,
How long does it take for Botox or Dysport to take full effect?
Botox or Dysport results will not appear instantly.
It takes 5 to 7 days before the effects of Botox start to work and for you to start to see a reduction in the lines and wrinkles on the face. It takes up to 2 weeks to see the full expression of the treatment with Botox or Dysport that you get.
Often times client's will require a touch-up Botox or Dysport appointment which is scheduled between 14-21 days after your initial appointment.
