  • What is Botox?
    Botox is a brand name for a type of injectable neurotoxin derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles, resulting in smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
  • What areas can be treated with 'botox'?
    'Botox' is commonly used to treat wrinkles and fine lines in various areas of the face and neck, including the forehead, crow’s feet around the eyes, frown lines between the eyebrows, bunny lines on either side of the nose, smoker’s lines around the mouth, marionette lines and drooping mouth corners, and neck bands or cords.
  • How does 'botox' treatment work?
    'Botox' treatment works by blocking the nerve signals that cause the facial muscles to contract. This relaxes the muscles and smooths out the wrinkles and lines in the treated area. The effects of 'botox' treatment usually last for 3 to 4 months.
  • What are the benefits of 'botox' treatment?
    'Botox' treatment can help improve the appearance of various facial areas, such as the forehead, eye area (crow's feet), frown lines between the eyebrows, and lip lines. It can also help with other conditions, such as excessive sweating, migraines, and jaw pain. 'Botox' treatment is a quick and minimally invasive procedure that requires no anaesthesia or recovery time. You can return to your normal activities immediately after the treatment.
  • What are the risks and side effects of 'botox' treatment?
    Like any medical procedure, 'botox' can have side effects. The most common side effects are temporary and may include redness, swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site. In rare cases, more serious side effects such as drooping eyelids, dry eye, allergic reaction, and muscle weakness can occur. It’s important to discuss any concerns with your cosmetic injector before undergoing treatment.
  • How do I prepare for 'botox' treatment?
    Before your ‘botox’ treatment, you should consult with your provider and discuss your medical history, allergies, medications, and expectations. You should also avoid alcohol, blood thinners, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements for at least a week before the treatment to reduce the risk of bleeding and bruising. You should also keep your skin clean and moisturized on the day of the treatment.
  • How do I care for my skin after ‘botox’ treatment?
    After your ‘botox’ treatment, you should avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area for at least 24 hours to prevent spreading the toxin to other muscles. You should also avoid strenuous exercise, heat exposure, and alcohol for at least a day after the treatment to prevent swelling and inflammation. You should also protect your skin from sun damage and use gentle and hydrating skincare products to enhance your results.
  • What is the difference between different brands of ‘botox’?
    The main difference between these brands is their formulation. Each brand has a slightly different formulation of the active ingredient, botulinum toxin type A, as well as different accessory proteins and manufacturing processes. These differences can affect how the product spreads and how long it lasts. However, all of these brands are effective at reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines when used correctly. It’s important to note that the effectiveness of a neurotoxin injectable can vary depending on the individual and the area being treated.
  • What are MINT Smooth Mono Threads?
    MINT Smooth Mono Threads are a type of absorbable thread made from polydioxanone (PDO) that is used in non-surgical facelift procedures. The threads are inserted into the skin to lift and tighten sagging skin, stimulate collagen production, and improve skin texture and elasticity.
  • How do MINT Smooth Mono Threads work?
    MINT Smooth Mono Threads work by creating a scaffolding-like structure under the skin to support and lift sagging tissue. The threads also stimulate the body’s natural healing response, which includes the production of new collagen and elastin. This helps to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of ageing.
  • What areas can be treated with MINT Smooth Mono Threads?
    MINT Smooth Mono Threads can be used to treat various areas of the face and neck, including the forehead, cheeks, jawline, and neck. They can also be used to improve the appearance of sagging skin on the body, such as the abdomen, arms, and thighs.
  • How long do the results of MINT Smooth Mono Threads last?
    The results of MINT Smooth Mono Threads can vary depending on the individual and the area being treated. In general, the threads are absorbed by the body over a period of 6-8 months, after which the treatment can be repeated as needed. The collagen-stimulating effects of the threads can last for up to 2 years.
  • What are the benefits of PDO smooth mono threads?
    PDO smooth mono threads can help improve the appearance and texture of the skin by smoothing, firming, and toning it. They can also reduce the size of pores and improve the absorption of skincare products.
  • What are the treatment areas for PDO smooth mono threads?
    PDO smooth mono threads can be used on various parts of the face and body, such as the forehead, cheeks, chin, neck, décolletage, arms, abdomen, and thighs.
  • How long does it take to see results from PDO smooth mono threads?
    The results from PDO smooth mono threads depend on several factors, such as the size and depth of the needles, the number and frequency of the sessions, the condition and type of the skin, and the post-procedure care. According to some sources, it can take 3 to 6 months to see the full results from PDO smooth mono threads, as the skin needs time to produce new collagen and elastin. However, some people may notice improvements sooner, especially if they have mild skin concerns or use shorter needles.
  • How many sessions are needed for PDO smooth mono threads?
    Most people need multiple sessions, usually about 4 to 8 weeks apart, to achieve their desired outcome. Afterward, they may need maintenance treatments once a year or as recommended by their provider.

  • What is dermal needling?
    Dermal needling, also known as micro-needling, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves the use of tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing process, which includes the production of new collagen and elastin.
  • What areas can be treated with dermal needling?
    Dermal needling can be used to treat various areas of the face and body, including the forehead, cheeks, chin, neck, and décolletage. It can also be used to improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and other skin imperfections.
  • How long does it take to see results from dermal needling?
    The results of dermal needling can vary depending on the individual and the area being treated. Some people may see an improvement in their skin after just one treatment, while others may require multiple treatments to achieve their desired results. It’s important to discuss your expectations with your skincare specialist before undergoing treatment.
  • How often should you have dermal needling treatment?
    The frequency of dermal needling treatments can vary depending on the individual and the condition being treated. In general, it is recommended to wait at least 4-6 weeks between treatments to allow the skin to heal and regenerate.
  • Is it painful?
    Dermal needling, also known as micro-needling, involves the use of tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. The sensation of the needles can vary depending on the individual’s pain tolerance and the area being treated. Some people may find the procedure to be uncomfortable, while others may experience little to no discomfort. To minimize discomfort, a topical anesthetic cream can be applied to the skin prior to the treatment.
  • Can I use makeup after dermal needling?
    After a dermal needling treatment, it is generally recommended to avoid wearing makeup for at least 24 hours to allow the skin to heal and recover. This is because the micro-injuries created by the needles can make the skin more susceptible to irritation and infection. It’s important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your skincare specialist to ensure the best possible results from your treatment.
  • Are there any side effects of dermal needling?
    Like any medical procedure, dermal needling can have side effects. The most common side effects are temporary and may include redness, swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the treatment site. In rare cases, more serious side effects such as infection or scarring can occur.
