Will my face still be expressive?
BOTOX COSMETIC® injections are intended to enhance the way you look, not change it. When administered by an experienced physician, you will still smile, frown and be expressive.
The treatment relaxes the muscle beneath the lines at the point of injection. Other elements of your facial expression remain active. It also has no effect on the sensory nerves, which means you will experience normal sensation in the treated areas.
Are BOTOX COSMETIC® treatments safe?
BOTOX COSMETIC® treatments have been licensed in Canada since 1990 as a safe and effective treatment for a variety of medical conditions. In 2001, Health Canada approved BOTOX COSMETIC® injections for wrinkle therapy.
What is the treatment like?
A tiny amount of BOTOX COSMETIC® is injected very precisely into the muscle being treated. The pain associated with the injection is minimal. The sensation has been compared to a bug bite. No sedation or local anesthetic is required. You can resume normal activities immediately.
How long does a treatment take?
A BOTOX COSMETIC® procedure is quick and simple. Following a facial analysis by your physician and a discussion on your desired outcome, the procedure takes about 10-15 minutes.
How much does it cost?
The costs associated with the treatment depend on the amount of product needed and the area of the face being treated. For example, treating frown lines between the eyebrows can cost as little as $200 depending on the size of the area and depth of the lines.
Who should not use this treatment?
Those who are pregnant, nursing or have a neurological disease should not be treated.
How long does the treatment last?
You can expect to see results within days after your treatment. Wrinkles and lines may continue to diminish for up to one week. The effect usually lasts about 3-4 months. After repeated treatments, the effect may last longer.
Do BOTOX COSMETIC® treatments have any side effects?
Serious side effects are rare. For additional information on serious and non-serious side effects, please book a consultation at our clinic.
Do creams work better than injections?
There is no scientific evidence showing that creams work better than BOTOX COSMETIC® injections. Creams work well on the surface of the skin. BOTOX COSMETIC® injections work below the surface of the skin to relax the muscles that cause lines and wrinkles to form.
