No, it takes four to five thousand units of toxin to be harmful: just 16 to 60 units are used on patients treated with Botox®.

All consultations at Katherine Corbett Clinics are free. For an exact quote it is best to make an appointment for a free consultation so that the practitioner can explain the treatment in full and let you know which product you will need.

4.
Will I be very marked after my treatment?
 

All of the treatments that involve an injection will leave a slight needle mark for about 24 hours and very occasionally a faint bruise may be noticed. It depends on how sensitive your skin is, some people do not mark at all. We supply a special tinted antiseptic camouflage powder to cover any marks left by the treatment.

6.
How long will my treatment last?
 

All of the fillers and Botox® treatment can last up to a year on some patients, however a span of 3-6 months is to be expected. It is impossible to give an exact length of time as each patient is different and many factors such as metabolism, life style and age, all affect how long the result lasts.

7.
Can I sunbathe after my treatment?
 

We suggest that patients use a sun block on the treated area after treatment. Patients who have had a filler should wait at least 48 hours before exposing the treated area to strong sunlight. We always suggest patients wear a sunscreen year round to stop sun damage to the skin.

8.
Do I need an allergy test for Botox®?
 

No, however there are a few groups of people who are not suitable for Botox®, particularly those pregnant or lactating or who have Multiple Sclerosis (MS), patients who are taking Aminoglycoside antibiotics or patients with an allergy to Botox® components. The doctor will discuss the treatment thoroughly with the patient beforehand so that they may have the opportunity to ask any questions regarding Botox®.

9.
After my veins have been treated will they ever come back?
 

We cannot guarantee that new veins will not appear but these can
also be treated as necessary. Sclerotherapy fades the treated veins, some people are prone to these veins all their lives. A family history of thread veins and a patient’s life style all play a part in the development of new thread veins.

10.
Will the treatment hurt?
 

For vein treatments a local anaesthetic spray is used and all some patients comment on is a slight discomfort during the treatment. A local anaesthetic cream can be applied thirty minutes before filler treatments to anaesthetise the skin, many patients are comfortable without anaesthesia.
