The anti-ageing properties of Botulinum Toxin TypeA (BTXA) is one of the secrets for a youthful appearance. It is a purified protein that was originally identified in 1895. The brand name is commonly referred to as BOTOX which is made by Allergan. This protein blocks a chemical your muscles need to contract. When injected, your muscles will relax, preventing the skin from creasing and causing wrinkles. The effect is temporary and generally will last for 3-4 months. Areas typically treated include, frown lines, crows feet, forehead lines and brow lift.

Dermal fillers are used to restore facial volumes. Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring polysaccharide found in soft connective tissue and skin and it is what gives it form. Hyaluronic acid attracts water and therefore adds volume and fullness to your skin and lips. It will help smooth out and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and folds. Results last from 9-12 months and sometimes even longer!

Q: How do I know if I want anti-wrinkle injections or dermal fillers?
A:  

A consultation in person or by phone will help you decide which product will be best.

Q: 

What is the cost?
A:   The cost will vary between clients and procedures. Beautifully U offers modest, competitive pricing with your budget in mind.
Q: Are the injections painful?
A: Anti wrinkle injections do not require any topical anaesthetic. They are just a little poke. Dermal Fillers can be a little uncomfortable so a topical anaesthetic will be applied to the area before it is treated. Ice also can be applied. Most dermal fillers used will also have an anaesthetic agent in the product.
 
Q: When will I see results?
A: Noticeable results for anti-wrinkle injections will be anywhere between 7 - 14 days. Dermal Filler results are immediate.
 
Q: Are There any risks or side effects?
A: As with any product or treatment, some minor side effects may occur. Most are temporary and disappear within a few days. Common side effects are redness, swelling, bruising and some pain. Very occasionally, with anti-wrinkle injections, patients may experience a lid ptosis (a hanging of the eyelid.) Although unlikely this can be treated with drops and is also temporary.
 
Q: What can I expect during the treatment?
A: Total treatment time, including consultation usually takes less than 30 minutes - the injections themselves only take a few minutes. The product is administered with very fine needles.
 
Q: Are there any special instructions prior to my treatment?
A: It is recommended to abstain from red wine, Advil (ibuprofen), Vitamin E and Aspirin for 3-4 days prior. This will help to reduce bruising. If you are prone to bruising, Arnica supplement may help. If you are pregnant, breast feeding or have auto-immune problems, you are not a candidate for injections. Please contact our office for any concerns.
