  • IS IT SAFE FOR ME?
    YES!! They have been available for over 20 years and can even be used for children with Cerebral Palsy.
  • WILL IT POISON ME?
    No, it is an approved drug that is derived from a naturally occurring bacterium. The dose used for cosmetic treatment is very small and toxicity from this is rare.
  • HOW DOES IT WORK?
    Neuromodulator works by blocking the communication between the nerve and the targeted muscles, causing the muscle injected to remain relaxed. Since the muscle is unable to contract, the skin surface remains smooth and provides you with a relaxed and refreshed look.
  • HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?
    Generally, after the consultation, the procedure will take approximately 15-20 minutes. Since there is no down time, this can easily be done during a lunch hour and you can even reapply your makeup within 20 minutes.
  • WILL MY FACE LOOK FROZEN?
    No, we are aiming to achieve a natural, rested look. No one will suspect that you have had treatment done.
  • HOW IS IT DONE?
    The product is injected using a very fine needle and usually, very minor discomfort may be experienced for a few seconds.
  • HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
    The product lasts 3-4 months. Regular use of this product may result in a smaller dosage required over time.
  • AM I GOING TO LOOK WORSE AFTER IT WEARS OFF?
    Not at all! Once the treatment has worn off, your muscle movement will return to normal. However, regular use of this product will allow the muscles to relax, delaying the onset and appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
    The cost is $10/unit. The quantity of product used depends on the area treated and the strength of your muscles. Everyone is different, but as a rough guide, the entire forehead will use approximately be around 25-45 units.
  • HOW QUICKLY DOES IT WORK?
    You will start noticing your muscles relax by day 3-4, with full results in 2 weeks. At 2 weeks touch-ups can be provided if needed. For first time clients, we always require a 2 week follow-up to ensure that your results are perfect!
  • WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS?
    Minor bruising and a slight headache may occur. These are transient and resolve with make up and Tylenol. A droopy eyelid may occur, but this is uncommon.
