An anaesthetic isn’t needed because discomfort is minimal. There may be a mild stinging sensation during treatment, and a transient headache has occasionally been reported following treatment.

Occasionally a small bruise may occur at the injection site, which can be covered with makeup. Some patient’s report a mild headache or numbness, and very rarely a temporary brow or eyelid droop may occur which may last a few weeks.

Results will take 5 – 10 days to be visible. You will be offered a review at 2 weeks which is optional after treatment to ensure that the optimum results have been achieved.

Exercise should be avoided for 4 hours after treatment, and the area should not be massaged for 3 days. You should also remain in an upright position for 4 hours following treatment to limit the spread of substance at the injection site.
