Frequently Asked Questions
HOW QUICKLY WILL YOU SEE RESULTS?
Results vary from person to person but you will be able to see the effects of the treatment within a week. In most cases, you will begin to notice the treated area slowly relax the muscles in the first 3-4 days. For some the onset is quick and for others it is slower. Because Botulinum Toxin is a muscle relaxant, (commonly used medically to ease spastic muscle conditions like Cerebral Palsy), you will not feel pain or discomfort, rather it has the sensation of relaxation, which is the opposite to a cramping feeling. In fact, when this treatment is given in the frown or forehead area it can often improve muscle tension and headaches.
WILL I BRUISE?
There are chances of bruising with any treatment that involves any injection. We take every step to minimise bruising, however bruising risks can be reduced and we discuss these at the consultation. It is important to note that medications and supplements like Nurofen, Fish Oil, Aspirin, GinkoBilba and Vitamin E affect can thin your blood thereby increasing the chances of bruising. Please let your practitioner know what medications you are taking prior to your treatment. However, do not discontinue medication without consulting with your doctor first.
WILL IT HURT?
At The Cosmetic Studio Noosa, it is our priority to ensure that our clients feel at ease and are comfortable while undergoing their treatments. In most cases, you will not need any pain relief for Anti-wrinkle injections, which are likened to a tiny scratching sensation. For those who are highly anxious or have a needle phobia, we use a topical anesthetic cream prior to the treatment to dull the sensation further and employ an array of effective distracting techniques. Making clients feel comfortable and confident whilst under our care is part of our expertise.
WHAT ARE ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS?
Anti-Wrinkle Injections are a Muscle Relaxant and they work to reduce the movement of muscles that cause lines and wrinkles to form in the skin. They assist with creating a smooth, fresh and youthful appearance.
HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST?
Generally the muscle relaxing effect lasts between 2-4 months. Some people will notice after several treatments that the muscle strength has naturally weakened from being kept in a state of relaxation – especially for the frown area. This is a desired effect and can lead to longer spacing between treatment sessions and hence reduced cost!

Frequently Asked Questions
ARE ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS RIGHT FOR ME?
Anti-Wrinkle Injections are muscle relaxant drugs and are given in safe, small, therapeutic doses for Cosmetic injections. If you are pregnant, planning on becoming pregnant, breastfeeding or suffering from a nerve or muscle disease such as Eaton-Lambert Syndrome, Myasthenia Gravis or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) you cannot have Anti-Wrinkle Injections. As with any treatment you are about to commence, it is important to discuss your health history with your practitioner to determine whether you are suitable. Apart from these conditions most people are suitable for Anti-Wrinkle treatment.
ARE THE INJECTIONS FROM THIS TREATMENT PAINFUL?
Everybody reacts differently to treatments where injections are involved. Some do not find this treatment particularly uncomfortable, while others can feel anxious just thinking about it. Hence, perception of pain and actual pain varies from person to person. Alternatively, the idea of having blood taken can be off putting for various reasons. To reduce discomfort and anxiety we take the time to talk these issues through during the consultation and of course, to minimise the discomfort, we apply a newly formulated powerful anesthetic cream 30 minutes prior, including the spot where your blood is going to be taken. Our clients are comforted in the fact that we are highly skilled and experienced in performing these clinical treatments, meaning we are very gentle!
