  • Liquid face lift - The micro-injection method on the whole face is one of the breakthrough in this treatment. It produces instant and natural face lift, reduce fine line and pores size within 3-6 days.
  • Excessive sweating or Hyperhidrosis treatment - Botulinum Toxin is FDA approved to treat under arm sweating also. Other areas like palms.
Duration

Clients can usually see results within days of the treatment, but the full effect can take up to 10 days. Visible results have been shown to last up to 3-5 months (and up to 1 year for hyperhidrosis.) Results last longer after you have received consecutive treatments over time.  There is no downtime.

What is the downtime after treatment?

None. There may be redness at the injection site but it is usually gone within a few minutes.

How Long Does The Procedure Take?

The procedure can take 15 minutes or less. Since there is no downtime, a client can get injections and then immediately go out in public without fear of being obvious that they have received treatment.

Does It Hurt?

Botulinum Toxin and Dysport are injected with a very tiny needle. Most clients say that the injections feel similar to a tiny pin prick.
