How long does botox typically last?

The duration of Botox's effects varies, typically lasting between 3 to 6 months. Several factors influence this variability, including the individual's metabolism, muscle mass, the dosage and type of Botox used, and the injection technique.

For first-time users, the effects might start to diminish around the third or fourth month, with some movement returning to the treated muscles. Continuous usage can extend the effectiveness, potentially up to six months. Regular follow-up treatments can help maintain the desired results and may even prolong the intervals between sessions.

Specifically, the effects of Botox in the forehead and other facial areas are generally consistent, lasting up to six months. However, the depth of wrinkles and the strength of facial muscles can affect the longevity of the results.

In summary, while the average duration of Botox's cosmetic effects is around 3 to 6 months, individual experiences can vary based on several physiological and treatment-related factors. Regular treatments are typically necessary to maintain the effects over time.

Botox Aftercare

You have undergone a treatment in which a small amount of a muscle relaxing protein has been injected into muscles to improve the appearance. It will take 5-14 days to start to see any muscle relaxing effect.

Injections can cause small amounts of swelling, a temporary bump resembling a bee sting, redness, bruising, a mild to moderate headache and sensations such as tingling or mild itching. These effects are so common they can be considered a normal part of the process.

Swelling that is not very painful can last for up to two weeks. Bruising may become more obvious as the day goes on and the subsequent few days before fading which can also take up to two weeks. Lumps and bumps may come and go over the following two weeks A small minority of bruises can last upto 6 weeks.

Fat Dissolving Aftercare

Immediately after treatment, there may be slight redness, swelling, tenderness and an itching sensation in the treated area. This is a normal result of the injections. The inconvenience is temporary and generally disappears in a week. If it is unbearable after taking paracetamol or if other reactions occur, please call me. You can feel slightly tender for 4-6 weeks. Avoid touching the treatment area 6 hours after the treatment. After that the area can be gently washed with soap and water, and light make-up can be applied in the case of the neck/jaw area after 24 hours. Until the initial swelling has resolved, do not expose the treated area to intense heat (e.g. suna and sunbed) or extreme cold.

These reactions include redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising minor but in some cases severe and tenderness at the injection site.

Navel, Eyebrow & Nipple - 9-12 Months


To better understand the stages of piercing, we have provided an overview.

Just Pierced - At the beginning of your healing, your piercing will feel tender and will appear swollen. You may experience occasional discomfort which is normal. Be extra cautious during this stage of the healing process.

Healing - Once the initial discomfort has settled, your piercing will begin the full phase of healing.

Piercings heal from the inside out which is why it takes some time to heal and requires extra patience. Please refer to our charts above to understand the average length of the healing process for your new piercing. During this phase, you should still be careful with your piercing and continue your aftercare. You may still experience occasional discharge and tenderness.

Healed - A piercing is safely considered healed once you have passed the length of your healing time, the discharge you've been cleaning off for several months completely ends and the jewelry feels natural without any discomfort.

Skin Booster Aftercare

There may be tenderness, redness, swelling and bruising around the injection site. This is normal and will subside, usually within a few days but bad bruising can last 2-6 weeks. You may feel tingling as the numbing begins to wear off too.

Skin Imperfection Removal Aftercare

This therapy is relatively low risk and side effects and complications are usually minimal. Some side effects may occur as a result of the treatment. These may include:

• Headaches: Not uncommon when freezing on the forehead, scalp and temples. Can last for 2 hours.

• Pigment Changes: Both hypo (lightening of the skin and hyper (darkening of the skin) pigmentation. Can last a few months or longer.

• Nerve Damage: Although rare, damage to nerves is possible especially where the nerves are close to the skin surface (fingers, wrist, behind the ear). Reports suggest that symptoms disappear after several months.

• Blisters: These may appear on the treated area but usually disappear after a few hours.

• Shards of Ice: The CryoPen delivers a high pressure jet of nitrous oxide. This jet can cause shards of ice to be thrown into the air to a distance of up to 30cm. They will thaw quickly and will not damage healthy skin.

• Damage to hair follicles: Hair follicles are easily damaged by cryosurgery and permanent alopecia to the treated area is not uncommon.

Post Treatment Information: If you have had a treatment to remove a skin lesion, you might like to know what to expect in the coming days. While there is very little aftercare required, there are a few things you should be aware of.

Blisters: Blistering can happen with any cryotherapy treatment and is indiscriminate. The Cryopen is the most effective way of avoiding blisters as we are only treating the affected area and not healthy tissue. If a blister does appear, please don't pop it. It will go down on its own. If it pops, weeping may occur. If so use a smear of Savlon or Germolene cream twice a day. An adhesive dressing such as a plaster can be used to cover the area to protect it.

Skin Tags: These turn black at the base and drop off over a period of one to six weeks. Larger skin tags of 3mm+ may need a second freeze. Please rebook after six weeks if they need to be retreated. If the area does become tender you can use use Savlon or Germolene twice a day. A plaster can be used to cover the area to stop the treated area being irritated by clothing rubbing on it.

Warts and Verrucae: It is recommended if they are still there, warts and verrucae should be re-treated 4 weeks after your first treatment. There is no aftercare apart from if the treated area develops a blister.

Milia: These are superficial keratin filled epidermal cysts and normally flatten and disappear with Cryotherapy quite quickly. There is no need to do anything other than follow the blister advice if one appears

Pigmentation, Birth marks and cherry Angiomas: The treated area may raise and look like a bee-sting. Do not worry this is perfectly normal. The redness will subside in a few hours.

General advice for all skin lesions: In the case of all lesions, over the next 24 hours the area will go darker and develop a crust on the surface. Do not pick this off. When it naturally falls away you will see new skin which is a shiny pink colour. This is not scarring. It will re pigment over the following weeks and could take several months.

• The histamine reaction in the area which was treated will create an itchy sensation for between ten and sixty minutes, do not worry this is perfectly normal.

• Do not pick the treated area at any time after treatment otherwise the area will take longer to heal. If a wheel/scab is knocked off accidentally it will also take longer to heal, but you should still have the same outcome of a successful treatment.

• Please use a sunblock factor 50 on any pigmentation removal until it has re-pigmented, this may take up to eight weeks.

• You can continue to use make up, deodorant or perfumes on treated areas but try and leave for as long as you can on the day of treatment.

• If the small crust has not fallen off after four weeks please wait until it has done so before contacting the clinic.

Skin sometimes takes several weeks and even months to regenerate.

• If the skin being treated is tanned please remember the healing skin will no longer be tanned. It will eventually re-pigment as it matures.

Ear Wax Removal

While wax removal is quick and minimally invasive, it's important to follow aftercare instructions to allow proper healing and prevent complications.

The ear canal can be sensitive after having wax removed, so specific steps should be taken to keep ears healthy, clean, and comfortable.

Proper aftercare will speed healing, prevent infection and swimmer's ear, reduce pain and discomfort, and get your ears and hearing back to normal again. Following these tips will make sure you get the most out of your earwax removal procedure.

Aftercare Tips

• Avoid getting water in your ears for 24-48 hours after the procedure. Protect ears with ear plugs when showering or washing your hair.

• If you are a hearing aid wearer and use any prescription ear drops as directed by your doctor to prevent infection and help with healing. Tilt head sideways and place drops in ear canal.

• Do not insert anything into the ear canal like cotton swabs, bobby pins or tissues, as this could disturb the healing process.

• Avoid flying for 48 hours after the procedure was done to clear blockages or pressure from your Eustachian tubes. The changes in air pressure could cause pain.

• Refrain from vigorous physical activity, exercise, swimming or strenuous activity for 1-2 days following the procedure. This helps prevent complications.

• Use over-the-counter pain relievers like ibuprofen if you experience any discomfort, ear pain or headaches afterwards.

What To Expect

It's normal to experience some temporary blocked or muffled hearing immediately after as the ear canal swells slightly from irritation. This swelling subsides within a few days as the ears heal, and hearing gradually returns to normal.

You may also experience some lightheadedness, vertigo, or a sense of imbalance. This is common and should resolve within 24-48 hours as the inner ear regulates itself again. Ears can remain sensitive, irritated, or itchy for several days following the procedure. Some residual redness or mild discomfort is normal. You may notice cracking or popping sounds as well. This is the ear canal recovering.

Relief comes quickly as the blockage is removed. Hearing, comfort, and ear function improve dramatically over the first few days. It is very rewarding to have your hearing restored.

Ear wax is natural protection for your ears.

Poking anything in your ears will only push the wax deeper and possibly cause problems and trauma to your ear.

To prevent build-up of excessive wax, if this is a regular problem for you, it may be helpful to book regular appointments which varies from person to person.
