It is a non-surgical procedure whereby a small amount of BOTOX® or Dysport® is administered into selected facial muscles using a very fine needle. Generally, the treatment takes around 10 minutes. Discomfort is typically minimal and brief, and no anaesthetic is usually required. The injection may sting for a few seconds but normal activities can be resumed soon after. After the injection, it takes 2-3 days for the treatment to begin taking effect and about 10 – 14 days to see the full effect. The dose recommended for the treatment will vary depending on your individual situation and the severity of your lines.
