Will people know I’ve had non-surgical cosmetic treatment?
Apart from the first 24-72 hours when there is swelling (after fillers), no one will be able to tell. People might notice your great skin and compliment you on it but they won’t be able to pinpoint any difference.
Are Botox and fillers painful?
Discomfort is minimal with both Botox and fillers. Dr Nina uses a topical anaesthetic cream on the skin before fillers and uses the smallest needles you can find in medicine. Her gentle manner will reassure you.
What can I do to reduce swelling after fillers?
We recommend ice packs or frozen peas, Arnica and paracetamol.
Is Botox safe?
Allergic reactions to Botox are extremely rare. Post-Botox discomfort is generally limited to bruising, for which I recommend ice, Arnica and paracetamol.
When will I need a top-up?
Botox lasts three months, and fillers 6-12 months, with this being dependent on the patient’s metabolism and activity levels.
Is top-up included?
Top-ups are included in the fee for the initial treatment for Botox, up to 2-3 weeks after the procedure.
Is consultation free?
We charge £60 for consultations but this is redeemable against any treatment.

Following your Botox treatment it is important to follow these aftercare instructions to get the best results. Facial Sculpting also invite you to come back for a free review within two/three weeks’ time so we can see how you are feeling. This could include a top up if required the top cannot be performed before the 14 day period.
Azzalure® normally takes an average of 2 to 3 days to start working, although it may take up to 14 days full effects to be seen. The speed of action will depend on the strength of your facial muscles and your individual response to the injection.
We hope you will be delighted with your more youthful appearance. The results should last up to four months and then you might wish to return for further treatments.
what about side effects?
Like all medicines, Botox can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them. The majority of reactions are harmless and temporary.
You might feel a bit of discomfort as the needle enters your skin. Some clients will also experience bruising or bleeding at injection sites.
Very rarely, Botulinum toxin may result in muscle weakness away from the site of injection. If you have any worries contact us and we will see you without delay.

Dermal FIller Aftercare
Most people are able to continue with normal activities with immediate improvement in their appearance. Some will have some redness, pin prick marks, possibly swelling- particularly in the lips. Possibly bruising. Any swelling and bruising may be more apparent the next day.
Make-up should not be worn for 12 hours.
You are advised to avoid alcohol, vigorous exercise, sun bathing, and extremes of heat or cold for 14 days post treatment. These activities have been found to increase and prolong swelling.
Swelling may worsen in the first 24 hours, and then should settle within the first few days. Cold packs can be helpful in reducing swelling. As a consequence of swelling, the product may feel harder or lumpy and you may notice some asymmetry. The final result may be judged at 2 weeks.
Bruising may take a few days to appear, arnica can be helpful in clearing bruising. It is advisable to avoid aspirin and alcohol for 12-48 hours after treatment. Tenderness should settle as swelling goes down.
Athletes should be aware some ingredients in the product may show a positive in ‘anti-dope tests’
Please contact your practitioner if redness, tenderness, itching or swelling worsens after 3 days, rather than settling.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns.
