FAQS

What is Botulinum Toxin?

Botulinum Toxin is a protein produced by clostridium botulinum bacteria that blocks the transmission of nerve impulses to muscles in the injected area. This relaxes the underlying muscles, resulting in a smooth beautiful look.

 

When can I expect to see the results?

Generally, it takes 3-7 days after injection to see the some effect.  The full effect often takes up to 2 weeks.

 

How long do the effects last?

This varies from person to person, however anywhere from 3-4 months is the average length of effect. 

 

What are the risks of this injection?

A Botulinum Toxin injection is generally a very safe treatment.  Occasionally clients experience  temporary bruising in the injection area.  A small percentage of clients experience a transient headache.  There is also a rare possibility that clients will experience muscle drooping near the injected area. 

 

Do you offer a Free Consultation?

At BeutoxEtc consultations are always complimentary.  

What are dermal fillers?

Injectable fillers, unlike Botulinum Toxin injections that relax the muscle under a wrinkle, are used as volumizers - plumping and lifting the areas of the lower face to restore lost volume, smooth lines and soften creases, enhance facial contours, or fill out thinning lips.

 

Facial fillers are products that are made from hyaluronic acid gel, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps keep skin plump and hydrated. It is extracted and reformulated in an injectable form that restores volume, fullness, and hydration to the face and lips.

How do fillers work?

As we age, the face starts to lose volume. Just like other muscles in the body, the facial muscles start to sag leading to lines around the nose and mouth and sunken looking cheeks. Fillers injected in this area will lift and plump the underlying muscle as well as fill and smooth out the lines.

 

When will I see results?

The results are instant!

 

Is it painful?

The fillers have lidocaine, an anesthetic, within the injection.  This significantly decreases any discomfort. Most clients do not feel it at all.

 

How long do fillers last?

Fillers will last anywhere from 18 months to two years.
