Below is a compilation of frequently asked questions (FAQs) from our clients. Email info@rytualist.com if your question is not yet listed below. 

Relatively speaking, neurotox injections are NOT painful! Most people rate the pain level as a 1 or 2 on a scale of 1-10… so nothing more than a slight pinch. And many people say they feel a flu shot more than a neurotox injection. 

Neurotoxins are very safe and highly effective for the purpose of wrinkle reduction when used appropriately. Botox and Xeomin are FDA approved and has been used safely for cosmetic injections for almost twenty years. 

For any type of neurotoxin procedure, you should start to see results in 2 days after your treatment. Maximum effect takes place in week two. 

Try your best to avoid alcohol and blood thinners like NSAIDs (e.g. Advil, Naproxen, Motrin) and fish oil as these can cause unnecessary bruising to the injection site. 

Results will last on average 3-4 months, but can last up to 6 months. It’s different for everyone! It all depends on how often you get it done, the amount of product used, and your own muscle mass. 

Avoid exfoliating for 24 hours and other skin treatments such as IPL, laser, resurfacing or skin tightening for 2 weeks post-treatment. We recommend avoiding alcohol and ibuprofen for 24 hours post-treatment to reduce your risk of bruising. 

Don’t worry! We are strong believers that the best neurotoxin treatments leave you looking refreshed, not frozen. We will work with you to achieve the results you desire, so you leave Rytualist feeling like the best version of yourself.
