If this is your first injection, Dr Moyal will determine the smallest quantity of BOTOX that will give the desired results. In subsequent visits, the quantity of BOTOX can be increased if necessary. This approach will avoid over treatment with BOTOX that can lead to a loss of expression. Our goal is to produce a relaxed and refreshed appearance by relaxing overworked muscles while conserving the ability to have natural facial expressions.
It is important to exercise the muscles that have been treated to ensure the absorption of BOTOX into the treated areas and to avoid diffusion into undesired areas.
You will start to see the effects of BOTOX as early as 4 days but these can take up to 14 days to become noticeable.
Follow up visit: 1-2 weeks after your treatment, Dr Moyal will see you again to make sure you are satisfied with the results. It is at this time that adjustments will be made if necessary. In the meantime, should you have any questions or concerns, Dr Moyal is always available to his patients. You will be given his phone number and email.
Frequency of visits –for the first year, treatments with BOTOX usually occur every 3-4 months . After one year of regular treatments either the quantity of BOTOX is reduced at every treatment or the number of treatments per year is reduced. In some cases both the quantity of BOTOX and the number of treatments are reduced.
Despite using a very small hypodermic needle, there can be Bruising and pain at the site of injection of the BOTOX – this is rare. Despite proper technique by the trained injector and proper aftercare by the patient there is a 2% possibility of the Botox cosmetic affecting the eyelid or brow and causing a droop. It is treatable with eye drops, it’s mild and lasts approximately 3 weeks after which time the eye drops are no longer necessary.

It is important to exercise the muscles that have been treated to ensure the absorption of dermal fillers into the treated areas and to avoid diffusion into undesired areas.
As with any treatment, there are a few minor risks. As with any lip filler, inflammatory reactions (redness, swelling, etc.), along with irritation or pain upon application of pressure, may occur after the initial injection. These reactions are typically temporary in nature. Lumps or nodules may appear at the injection site. Very rare cases of reversible colouring at the injection area have been reported.
Rare cases of necrosis in the glabellar area, abscesses, granuloma, and hypersensitivity have been reported after injections of hyaluronic acid. You should be sure to report any concerns or discomfort you experience to your practitioner immediately.
Immediately after the treatment one can expect some swelling that will subside in 4-7 days after which time there is usually no evidence of the procedure. there may be bruising with the injection and this may take longer to subside.
Since PRP uses your own blood, you should not have a reaction to it. Studies have noted that PRP has been found to have a positive effect on male and female pattern hair loss without major adverse side effects. You may experience minimal pain, pinpoint bleeding, and redness when the injections are being delivered.
An inflammatory reaction around the hair follicles that have been treated with laser is normal. It is referred to as a ‘‘folliculitis’’ or an inflammation of the follicle. The type of reaction varies from one person to the next and can go from slight swelling and redness to blisters. People can feel tingling, burning and other sensations. These are transient and never severe or persistent. If this is not the case or you are unsure please call our knowledgeable staff.
Applying cold compresses, moisturizing cream that is hypoallergenic and scent free or an ointment such as Zincofac can help with temporary discomfort. In some cases, a cream such as Polysporin can help with the healing process.
