After the injections, a small amount of redness and swelling can occur. This goes away quickly. In some clients, a small amount of bruising and bleeding can occur but this is usually very mild. If bruising occurs, it can be hidden with make-up for the female clients. The bruising will usually resolve in one to two weeks.
Clients should avoid strenuous activity for the remainder of the day, should not lie flat for several hours, and should not massage the areas that were injected because this can cause the Botox to diffuse to other areas causing problems. You can return to work the same day as the procedure.
Dr. Piermichele Antonino is anti-wrinkle treatments specialist who did his first dermal fillers course in the faculty of medicine of Cordoba (Spain). Then he continued his professional education of anti-wrinkle injectables during many courses of Botulinum Toxin and Dermal Fillers in London. Since then he has been working in Dublin providing treatments for both: botox and dermal fillers injections. A part of his work, from 2010 he has been volunteering in Africa during the summer periods, providing the free medical care to native patients.
Botox injection is a very low risk procedure. Potential complications can include, as mentioned above, a small amount of redness and swelling. You can also develop some bruising. Temporary muscle weakness can also occur. Other rare complications will be discussed with you during your consultation.
Botox is an injection that can help decrease the number and severity of dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles that occur during facial expressions). The injection works by blocking the nerve signals to the muscles in the problem areas. This results in a decrease in wrinkles in those areas because the muscles are no longer contracting or they are contracting much less.
Clients that most often benefit from this non-surgical procedure are males or females with transverse/horizontal wrinkles of the forehead, wrinkles between the eyebrows, and/or wrinkles around the eyes (crows feet). Botox can also be used to give some clients a “chemical” brow lift. In clients that are prone to forming wrinkles from facial expressions, Botox can also be used as a preventative measure.
Clients should wear minimal make-up when coming in for facial Botox injections. The face will be cleaned and a numbing cream will be placed on the skin if the client desires (although the Botox injections can often be done without numbing cream as they are not very painful). The injections will be performed in the areas that need treatment and that are agreed upon by the client and Doctor. The in-office procedure will take about 20 minutes.
