What areas can I treat?

How does it work?
Using a very fine needle, the product is injected into the facial muscles and works by blocking the nerves that contract the muscles, thereby softening the appearance of the line or wrinkle. The skin above the muscles becomes nice and smooth after a period of between three to 14 days. It takes this time for the product to settle, attached itself to the nerve endings and get to work. A very fine needle is used and the treatment is considered painless by the majority of patients.
Does it hurt?
Treatment is considered painless by the majority of patients. You will feel a little twinge but generally this is the extent of the sensation.
How long does it take?
The treatment length varies depending on the number of areas being treated but generally it takes between 5 and 10 minutes.
How soon will I see results?
You will see the full results between seven – 14 days after your treatment. It takes this time for the product to settle, attached itself to the nerve endings and get to work.
How long will the results last?
You can expect the results to last between two and six months depending on your body’s metabolic system and the product that is used. After this time, the effects wear off and your muscles return to normal activity and movement. At River Medical, we are renowned for our subtle yet effective results. Our aim is to help you look good for your age, not to dramatically change your overall appearance.

No. You can go back to all regular activities immediately after treatment. You may experience mild swelling and redness however this typically settles after a few hours.
