Do the treatments hurt, and will I bruise?
As earlier stated, Botox injections are injected into the facial muscles, using a very fine needle, similar in size to what is used in acupuncture. As a result, most patients only experience minimal discomfort with no downtime. To make the procedure more comfortable, we also offer a numbing cream which can be applied about thirty minutes before treatment. This will be discussed during your consultation.
How long does the procedure last?
Most treatments take about 30 – 45 mins to complete. If a numbing cream is used prior to treatment, the procedure can take up to an hour. At Christchurch, our priority is to ensure you are comfortable therefore we allocate one hour for our appointments.
