Also commonly known as “bruxism’.

Arrange a consultation for assessment and treatment options.


Whether you undergo a facial contour or lip enhancement procedure, you may experience some slight swelling, tenderness or bruising in the treated area. This is completely normal and should subside within 1-2 weeks. 

To prepare our clients as best we can for what to expect and what steps to take following an appointment, we have also included some key points to remember below:

  • You are not a candidate if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, suffer from neurological disorders., and have allergies to any ingredients used during treatment. 
  • Do NOT consume alcoholic beverages at least 24 hours prior to treatment (alcohol may thin the blood and increase the risk of bruising)
  • Avoid anti-inflammatory/blood thinning medications for 1 week before treatment. Medications and supplements such as aspirin, vitamin E, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, St. John’s Wort, Omega 3/Fish Oil supplements, Ibuprofen (nurofen) and other non-inflammatory medication have a blood thinning effect and can increase the risk of bruising and swelling after injections.
  • Schedule your appointment at least 2 weeks prior to a special event which you may be attending, such as a wedding or a holiday. Also bruising and swelling may be apparent during that period. 
  • Reschedule your appointment at least 24 hours in advance if you have a rash, cold sore or blemish on the area to be treated.
  • If you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, there is a risk that the needle punctures could contribute to another eruption of cold sores. You will need to take preventative treatment on the day of procedure. 
  • Be sure to have a good breakfast, including food and drink before your procedure. This will decrease the chances of lightheadedness during your treatment.
  • Avoid waxing, bleaching, tweezing, or hair removal cream on treatment area for 2 days post treatment. 
  • In the 48 hours following treatment, avoid heat related environments such as sauna, steam rooms and SPAS
  • Avoid applying makeup on the day of treatment.
  • Wait 2 weeks post immunisations for treatment.
  • Do NOT manipulate the treated area for 4 hours following treatment. 
  • Do NOT lie down for 4 hours after your Botox treatment. This will prevent the Botox from tracking into the orbit of your eye and causing drooping eyelid.
  • It is advised not to fall asleep on your front to allow the Botox to settle.
  • It can take approximately 3 to 10 days for results to be seen. If the desired result is not seen after 2 weeks of your treatment you may need a top up. You are charged for the amount of product used during any touch-up or subsequent appointments.
  • Do NOT  exercise for several days after treatment. This will ensure optimal results.
