During a procedure with neurotoxins Ardmore patients can expect a relatively quick and minimally invasive experience. The treatment involves the precise injection of neurotoxin, such as Botox or Dysport, into targeted facial muscles responsible for forming wrinkles and lines. The procedure is typically well-tolerated, with minimal discomfort, and patients can often resume their daily activities immediately afterward. Results gradually become apparent over the following days, with the full effect typically achieved within a couple of weeks, providing a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance that can last for several months before maintenance is needed.
The onset of action for these injectables typically takes around 2-4 days, with the full effects usually becoming noticeable within approximately 14 days following the treatment. These effects typically endure for about 3-4 months before gradually wearing off.
After a neurotoxin treatment, the aftercare process is generally straightforward. Patients are advised to avoid strenuous physical activity for the remainder of the day to prevent the spreading of the neurotoxin. It's recommended not to rub or massage the treated areas to ensure the neurotoxin stays in place. Refraining from lying flat for about four hours post-treatment can help optimize results. While some mild redness or swelling may occur at the injection sites, this typically subsides within a few hours to a day. It's advisable to avoid alcohol, intense heat, and sun exposure on the day of treatment. Ardmore neurotoxin patients can generally resume their regular skincare routine and apply makeup if desired. Overall, the aftercare for neurotoxin treatments is minimal, allowing individuals to easily return to their daily activities.
