At New Medical Spa, we strive to ensure every patient is as comfortable as possible before, during, and after treatment.
While most injectable procedures are fairly similar in how they are applied, your injector will use their experience to determine the best location and appropriate injectable to achieve desired results. Depending on the type of injection, results may be seen immediately or may take a few days to see the final effect.
After treatment, side effects should be minimal but be aware that some injections may cause temporary swelling at the site of the injection. This should subside shortly after treatment and you should be able to resume your day as planned.
A neurotoxin temporarily relaxes the target muscles which can remove the wrinkle or can soften deep wrinkles. Once you stop the contraction of a few muscle groups, the result would be a smoothening out of fine lines and wrinkles giving your face a softer more youthful appearance.
Neurotoxins can also be used to remove “gummy smiles”, improve hyperhidrosis or too much sweating in your axilla, stop bruxism or grinding of your teeth, help smoker’s lines, improve “bunny lines” on the bridge of your nose, and migraines.
Your face will be thoroughly cleansed to remove all makeup and cosmeceuticals. A facial analysis is performed to determine the amount of product that is needed to achieve optimal results. The area to be injected will be cleaned again with 70% alcohol. There is minimal discomfort as you can be given a topical anesthetic or use of ice packs to keep you comfortable. You may feel a small pin prick just before the neurotoxin is injected. The procedure takes about 15 minutes. There is generally no recovery time; you may return to work immediately after the procedure. We recommend no exercising for 24 hours after treatment and no laying down for 1-2 hours after treatment.
Although the procedure itself takes only 15 minutes, the onset of action of the neurotoxin can be 3-4 days for Jeuveau and several days more for Botox. Follow up is done after two weeks.
Generally, the effects of neurotoxins last about 3-4 months. In our experience, however, the effects can last longer after multiple injections. This is usually caused by the fact that the muscles are not used to contracting and become smaller over time, which adds to the longevity of the neurotoxin.
