How Do Cosmetic Injections Work?
Botulinum toxin is a medication that is more commonly known by brand names like Botox . Injection of botulinum toxin into a facial muscle causes it to relax, making the surface of your skin smoother. You’ll start to see effects within a few days of the treatment. Optimal results will be visible in about two weeks with results lasting about three or four months.
How Long Does a Treatment Take?
A medical consultation and injection treatment will usually take about 30 minutes. There is no prolonged downtime following the session. Your treatment professional will advise you of important steps that should be taken after your appointment.
So happy I decided to start laser hair removal here! Malahat was so sweet and made me feel comfortable despite how awkward lasering certain parts of your body may be. It’s evident that she’s experienced and knows exactly what she’s doing.
The clinic is also very clean and is taking the proper precautions which made me feel very comfortable.
I’ve only done one session so far and have already noticed a decrease in hair growth. Can’t wait for my next session!
So helpful and answered all my questions. Knows exactly how gentle to be. Very clean environment, spacious, and always a great vibe! Great suggestions on lashes that fit my face perfectly!
