The pain associated with injections is mild and no local anaesthetic is required. The needles used are very fine and approximately the same diameter as coarse human hair.

You will be able to drive and engage in all of your usual daily activities immediately after your injections. You may develop slight bruising at the injection sites, but otherwise there will be no visible signs of your skincare treatment.

In rare cases, the Botox can migrate to nearby muscles, causing some weakness, such as drooping of the upper eyelid. This is a temporary side effect, lasting for a few weeks at most.
