Frequently Asked Questions
What’s included in a Skin Consultation?
During your full face skin consultation, our Registered Nurse Allira, will work with you to understand your aesthetic goals, answer any questions you have, and offer a personalised treatment plan.
How long until anti wrinkle kicks in?
- The effects of anti-wrinkle treatments are gradual. You may start to see a difference as early as 2-3 days after the treatment, but it may take up to 2 weeks to see the full effect.
- The duration of the effects of anti-wrinkle treatments can vary from person to person. Some people may see the effects last for up to 6 months, while others may see them last for only 2-3 months.
How frequently do I need Anti-Wrinkle Injectables?
It is recommended to repeat the treatment before the muscle movements return to normal. This is typically 3-4 months after the initial treatment. By repeating the treatment before the muscle movements return to normal, there will be an overlap in results, which will help to maintain the softening effect of the treatment.
Can Anti-Wrinkle treatments work as a preventative measure?
Yes, anti-wrinkle injections can help to prevent future wrinkles from forming. By influencing the movement of facial muscles and reducing contractions, these injections can help to keep the skin smooth and prevent the formation of deep lines. This is one of the most effective anti-aging treatments available
Will I bruise after injectables?
Bruising is a common side effect of injectables, such as Botox and fillers. It occurs when a blood vessel is punctured during the injection, causing blood to leak into the surrounding tissue. The severity of bruising can vary from person to person, but it is usually mild and goes away within a week or two.
What is PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a natural collagen stimulant which uses the body’s own natural growth factors and stem cells to retexture and rejuvenate the skin, smoothing out crepey skin and encouraging the natural production of collagen and skin tightening elastin to put the spring back in your skin.
What is the difference between PRP & a Vampire Facial?
Using microneedling instead of injections to deliver PRP to the skin.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a small roller with tiny needles to create tiny channels in the skin. These channels allow the PRP to penetrate deeply into the dermis and epidermis layers of the skin, where it can promote collagen production and skin regeneration.
