Here at Bromley Aesthetics, we deliver small injections to the targeted area, and this results in excessive movement. As time goes by, the movements create dynamic wrinkles.
However, we do recommend doing these things after you have gotten the procedure:
- Do not rub or massage the affected area for at least four hours after the procedure
- Do not engage in strenuous exercise for 24 hours
- Remain upright for four hours
