How it works

Botulinum Toxin Type A is the magic ingredient which is found in our Anti Wrinkle injections. This works by relaxing and weakening the targeted muscle which is causing the unwanted lines. Anti Wrinkle injections are a prescribed medication, therefore a full consultation prior to your procedure is carried out with the bo nurse to determine your suitability.

Once injected Botulinum Toxin sits between the nerve endings and the muscle fibres which inhibits the muscle from contracting as it had previously. With or without Botulinum Toxin your body naturally renews these nerve endings which is why the product wears off over time.

Results

Optimal results are noticeable two weeks post treatment. However, most clients will slowly start to notice changes at day four or five post treatment. These results typically last three to four months. If you are wanting to keep on top of your bo glow, then we recommend regular appointments. 

Pre Treatment

Prior to your treatment one of our bo nurses will complete a full consultation with you to ensure your suitability for the desired treatment area. At the consultation we will be able to answer any questions or concerns and talk you through the process.

To reduce the likelihood of bruising we recommend avoiding blood thinning medications such as: aspirin, ibuprofen and fish oils (consult your medical practitioner first) one week prior to your appointment.

Before your appointment please let the bo team know if you…

 

  • Have an auto immune disorder.
  • Are on any antibiotics.
  • Have a severe metabolic or systemic disorder.
  • Are regularly taking anticoagulant medications.
  • Have Myasthenia Gravis syndrome or Eaton Lambert syndrome.
  • Have any sensitivity to Botulinum Toxin Type A.
  • Currently have an active infection at the treatment site.
  • Pregnant, breastfeeding or planning on becoming pregnant.
What to expect at your appointment

Anti Wrinkle injections are very quick to administer. Once we have decided on the area to treat we then mark up the injection site/s and calculate how much product we will need to get the desired result. You may feel a slight stinging sensation during the treatment, however there is minimal discomfort involved.

Post treatment

Over the days following your appointment you will start to notice a reduction in the muscle movement as the product starts to take effect. Optimal results are noticeable two weeks post treatment.

 

For 48 hours following your appointment, avoid touching, rubbing and massaging the area. Gentle cleansing and your normal skincare routine is fine. Mineral make up may be applied unless instructed otherwise.

Avoid strenuous exercise, heat and saunas for 24 hours.

Some clients experience a mild headache after treatment.

What’s next

At Bo Injectables we like to book in a two week follow up with all of our clients to ensure you are happy and that the treatment is working/ looking how it should. Your results will naturally start to wear off over the course of three to four months.

If you decide Anti Wrinkle injections aren’t for you then have no fear – once the treatment has naturally been metabolised by your body, your muscle movement will go back to the way it was before.
