Frequently Asked Questions
The botulinum toxin prevents the muscle from contracting so that lines appear smooth.
Results can be seen from about day 3 with optimal findings by day 14. At PMC, we bring all our patients back to the clinic 2-3 weeks after the treatment to evaluate the results and, if necessary, to “top up” with toxin. After 10-12 weeks, the results will start to disappear.
We use very small needles to minimize discomfort.
We offer an aftercare sheet to anyone who has toxin injections, and you can call the clinic for any advice or queries.
Fillers are made of hyaluronic acid that occurs naturally in the body, making them perfect to restore the face’s volume and shape. They are especially common as a lip enhancement therapy.
Fillers are given with a tiny needle, no matter how sensitive the face, particularly the lips. We use a powerful anaesthetic cream here at PMC that is applied to the region to be handled 20 minutes before we take the procedure. If you wish, a dental block can be used to treat lip fillers, making the lips numb, similar to the injections given by dentists beforehand.
Results are expected to last for at least six months.
We offer everyone who has an aftercare sheet of filler injections to bring home with them, and of course you can call the clinic for any advice or query.
Permit up to an hour for the treatment.
Patients report gentle distress, but an analgesic can be managed as the threads are being advanced.
Results are seen immediately and are expected to last 12 – 18 months.
We offer an aftercare sheet to anyone with Laser Skin Rejuvenation to bring home with them, and you can call the clinic for any advice or queries, of course.
