While you may think that BOTOX COSMETIC® injections are only for wrinkle therapy, BOTOX COSMETIC® injections have actually been in use for over 20 years as an effective treatment for many medical conditions. In fact, it has been approved for medical use in Canada and in more than 75 countries for 20 different medical conditions. Today, BOTOX COSMETIC® injections have become the most popular physician-administered cosmetic treatment in North America with an estimated three million treatments performed annually.
How do BOTOX COSMETIC® injections work?
A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.
Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. BOTOX COSMETIC® injections work beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look visibly smoother.
Where can BOTOX COSMETIC® injections be used?
- Frown lines
- Forehead creases
- Crow’s feet (around the outer eyes)
- Bunny lines
- Fine lines in the upper lip
- Forehead for tension headaches and migraines
- Hyperhidrosis to the underarms (for excessive sweating)

Will my face look overdone or unnatural?
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 sensations in the treated areas. So you’ll look like yourself—only with less noticeable lines. No one should be able to tell you’ve had anything done.
Are BOTOX COSMETIC® injections only for women?
Not at all! Many men make BOTOX COSMETIC® injections part of what they do to care for their appearance.
The number of men choosing treatments like BOTOX COSMETIC® has risen fast – in the past three years alone, men have received over one million botulinum toxin treatments. When surveyed, the majority of men say they want to look good and they’re bothered by the changes they see in the mirror. 80% would choose to treat their crow’s feet first, while 74% would prioritize their forehead lines, and 60% would most like to treat their frown lines.
Are BOTOX COSMETIC® injections safe?
BOTOX COSMETIC® injections 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.
Do I need to be over 40 to start using BOTOX COSMETIC® injections?
It’s not your age that determines when a BOTOX COSMETIC® treatment is right for you, it’s the severity of your lines. In fact, 64% of plastic surgeons report seeing a rise in cosmetic surgery or injectable treatments for patients in their early 30’s.
The truth is, everyone’s lines form differently. The timing can be influenced by a combination of factors, from cellular changes that may occur over time, to a reduction of collagen, to genetic factors, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.
Whenever your lines start to bother you, go speak with your doctor. They can help you determine if treatment is right for you.
What is the treatment like?
A tiny amount of BOTOX COSMETIC® injections are 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 much time does treatment take? Will it hurt?
The actual injection process takes a quick 10 minutes. Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you. Then, some patients report that being injected with BOTOX COSMETIC® injections feels like a pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. Or, if you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.
Treatment requires minimal downtime. So you can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave your specialist’s office.
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.
How many injections will I need?
BOTOX COSMETIC® treatments are customized to your goals and needs. When you meet with your specialist, he or she will determine the appropriate treatment for any areas you wish to address, including moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines.
How long does the treatment last?
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to four months for moderate to severe frown lines. Remember that results vary from patient to patient though, so your physician will plan your next appointment based on your results and aesthetic goals.
Do BOTOX COSMETIC® injections 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.
