What to Expect
The injections are administered at specific sites in the head and neck using very fine needles. The session usually takes about 15 minutes and you can return home immediately after with no activity limitations. Treatments are repeated every 12-16 weeks.
What can you expect following the injection procedure?
You may not notice any improvement initially for a week or two. Following that and with subsequent treatments the effects are more pronounced and longer lasting.
Are there any side effects to injection therapy?
Side effects of injection therapy occur in around 3-5% of patients but are all short-lived and reversible. You may experience a transient headache that resolves in 24-48 hours and a sensation of heaviness over the forehead or neck for 2-4 weeks. Eyelid droop or neck pain are less common. If they occur the risk during subsequent treatment can be minimised by adjusting the dose injected.
