Anti-Wrinkle/ Muscle Relaxant
Possible risks and side effects.
Chance of bruising – Usually minor and can be concealed with makeup. We can also use a laser to fade the bruise quickly.
Swelling, redness and soreness over injection sites. Usually, fade within 1 hour but can last a few days in rare cases. There is an extremely rare risk of allergic reactions.
Chance of temporary facial asymmetry (like brow spocking) – can be quickly fixed at no extra cost to you.
Chance of heaviness in brow when forehead is treated – often in those with excess skin around the upper eyes – we can adjust the dosage and injection points to manage this.
Risk of smile flattening, an uneven smile, or dry eyes when treating around the lower part of eyes (lower crow’s feet). Can be reduced by using lighter doses there.
1 in 100 risk of headaches or fatigue – usually resolves a day but rarely can persist for up to 2 weeks.
1 in 5000 risk of temporary eyelid droop or dry eyes. May occur when treating frown or around the eyes. Avoid pressing on your face for 6 hours to reduce risk.
1 in 100,000 chance of a skin infection – treated with antibiotics.
Duration of results is on average 3 months can be significantly shorter or longer depending on your physiology. We cannot guarantee how long the therapeutic effect will last.
There is the risk you may not like your results. The final outcome cannot be predicted with 100% certainty due to individual variations in muscle configuration and drug response. We cannot offer refunds but are able to offer retreatment (review) or adjustments at no charge. The effects of botulinum toxin type A cannot be reversed but will wear off over time. If you are not satisfied with the result, we will do our best to work with you to reach a good outcome.
There is a limit of 1 complimentary retreatment (review) session after each paid treatment. Any adjustments or refinements are limited to 10% of the initial amount used. After this, a charge will apply to cover costs.
