What is the procedure like?
First Irena will consult with you regarding your goals and areas of concern. Tiny doses of either Botox or Dysport are injected into the skin where wrinkles are noticeable. It is a very simple procedure which typically lasts 10- 20 minutes. The number of injections and dose type/amounts administered varies for each person. Irena uses extremely small needles and the procedure is relatively painless. A numbing cream may be applied if desired.
What exactly are they? Are they safe?
