Frequently asked questions about cosmetic injections.
At SkinFX Canada, we only use brand-name cosmetic injections, your choice of Botox Cosmetic, Dysport, and Nuceiva. Cosmetic injections block signals from the nerves, which weakens the muscle’s contraction. The weakened muscle can’t contract as much and in turn your wrinkles will lessen for 2-4 months, depending on the dose. Due to its ability to quickly, safely, and effectively reduce unwanted expression lines, wrinkle-reducing cosmetic injections are now the most popular cosmetic treatments in North America, after first receiving FDA approval for cosmetic indications in 1989.
A cosmetic treatment usually takes 30 to 60 minutes. This includes a mandatory consultation, the injections only take 15-25 minutes.
It generally takes three to seven days to see the full effect, and it is best to avoid cardio or strenuous exercise for 18-24 hours after your session.
Temporary bruising is the most common side effect of cosmetic injections. A small percentage of patients may develop temporary eyelid drooping. This usually ends within three weeks. Drooping usually happens when the injection moves around, so it’s best not to rub the treated area for twelve (12) hours after injection or lie down for three (3) hours. If there is an area with bruising, we can use laser treatments to reduce the effects.
The effects of cosmetic injections will last two (2) to four (4) months. As muscle strength gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear and need to be treated again. After receiving the treatment multiple times, the lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are being trained to relax.
We inject with a fine needle into specific muscles, or just below the surface of the skin, with only minor discomfort. Some people say they don’t feel most of the injection points.
