The procedure takes only a few minutes and no anesthesia is required. Botox® or Dysport® is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. It generally takes two to seven days to take full effect and it is best to avoid alcohol at least one week prior to treatment. Aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications should be stopped two weeks before treatment as well, in order to reduce bruising.
How Long Does an Injection Last?
The effects will last three, four or even six months – each person is different. As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to re-appear and wrinkles need to be re-treated. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are being trained to relax.
Do You Offer The Lip Flip?
Yes, we do. We have a master injector on our staff that offers the Lip Flip and many other specialized treatments with neurotoxins including the "Arc" and "Brow Lift".
