Botulinum Toxin FAQ

What does LED light facial Mask do?


Depending on which wavelength is used, light therapy can increase collagen production & cell renewal, diminish fine lines & wrinkles, reduce pigmentation & even skin tone, shrink large pores & smooth skin texture, fight acne causing bacteria and minimize scarring.




Is there proof this technology works?


LED devices are classified by the FDA as possessing “non-significant risk”; they are completely safe and possess no possibility of harm from over-exposure. The LED's emit no UV light, so there is no risk of sunburn or skin cancer. This treatment has no adverse reactions and no down-time. We recommend speaking to your doctor first if you are pregnant, have epilepsy or photoallergy or are taking any of the following medications; steroids injections, cortisone injections, medications causing light sensitivity (such as Tetracycline).




Is this treatment abrasive or painful?


Light therapy is a gentle, painless, non-invasive and non-abrasive treatment. You'll have no down time after each treatment.




How often can I use a LED facial Mask?


We recommend you use the mask for 15 minutes a day, every day to see optimal results.




How soon can I expect to see results?


Light therapy stimulates your own cells natural healing and collagen production, so the most visible results are not immediate. The skin can look different after the first treatment; smoother and more hydrated with a natural radiant glow, and with each treatment you will see improvement.
Acne scars and scars from other types of injuries can start to improve in as little as two weeks and should gradually fade over time with continued use.




Should I continue my skin care routine as normal?


Absolutely! The LED mask will help to strengthen and rejuvenate the skin at a cellular level so will amplify the results achieved in other facial treatments. We recommend using the LED mask as an addition to your existing skincare regime.




Is LED light for everyone?


Light therapy will have the greatest impact on skin cells with sluggish metabolism and slow cellular activity, showing visible signs of aging. It can be used on all skin types, colours and conditions.




Can I use LED Light Therapy after my Botulinum Toxin (wrinkle relaxer) injections?


We recommended that you wait a two weeks after Botulinum Toxin injections before beginning to use the mask. If you have any concerns, speak with your doctor or dermatologist.




Can I go out in the Sun after this treatment?


Yes, LEDs emit no UV light and the treatment does not increase photo-sensitivity. We always recommend you slip, slop, slap every day to protect your skin from damaging UVA and UVB rays.




Can LED light Therapy cause sun burn or skin cancer?


No. Sun burn and skin cancer are caused by light exposure from UV wavelengths, which the LEDs do not emit.





Dermal Fillers FAQ

What is Hyaluronic Acid?


Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring polymer found in all living organisms.1 The Human dermis has a high percentage of HA, which hydrates the skin because of its high water-binding properties. HA is the predominant part of the viscoelastic intracellular matrix, which provides and maintains proper tissue volume and acts as a cushion to help protect the skin.




What are the characteristics of Neuramis®?


(difference between Neruamis and others) Neuramis® is innovative HA dermal filler developed by Medytox which has successfully developed a botulinum toxin product, Neuronox, the fourth of its kind in the world. Medytox’s SHAPE Technology, a special double cross linking technology, maximizes the volume and longevity.




Which areas can be treated by Neuramis®?


Neuramis® treatments can be used to smooth out facial lines, augment lips and shape facial contours, such as cheeks and the chin. It is a subtle approach to enhancing looks naturally.

The most common areas for treatment:

  • From the nose to the angle of the mouth (the nasolabial folds)
  • Marionette Lines (lines that form at the corners of your mouth)
  • Lips (enhancement)
  • Cheeks and Chin (shaping)




Are there any side-effects?


Side-effects may occur. These include swelling, pain, itching, bruising and tenderness at the injection site. They usually disappear spontaneously within a few days to a few weeks.




How long does a treatment last?


In general, the results last 6-18 months. The duration depends on many factors such as the patient’s skin, age and injection areas.
