While celebrities have made BOTOX® injections famous, they are a cost-effective therapy that anyone can have. Unlike some cosmetic medical treatments, they are suitable for almost everyone who wants to erase wrinkles or other skin lines. This includes persons who want to fight the symptoms of natural aging or those who have lines on their skin as a result of sun exposure.
Aging skin and wrinkles are the result of a variety of circumstances. It is not simply about cellular alterations, collagen depletion, hormone deficiency, or free radical damage. The elevens — those vertical lines between your brows – are caused by muscle spasms. When you concentrate, squint, or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, resulting in furrowing and folding of your skin. Years of repeated contractions can leave wrinkles that persist even while the muscles are at rest. This is where BOTOX ® Cosmetic may be of use.
BOTOX ® Cosmetic is a prescription medication that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily relieve the appearance of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the brows in individuals aged 18 to 65 years (temporary). It acts by inhibiting nerve impulses to the muscles that have been injected. This minimizes muscular activity, which contributes to the formation of mild to severe lines between the brows. BOTOX ® is also used to treat extreme underarm sweating (severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis) when topical medications are ineffective.
Botox injection can be used on virtually everyone who has animated muscles that generate unpleasant lines, wrinkles, or make an area of the face appear pushed down. Lip lines, cheek lines, jowls, neck lines, and even chest lines are all examples of this. The most often treated locations with Botox (and those for which Health Canada has approved therapy) are the glabellar area of the forehead, the crow's feet around the corners of the eyes, and the horizontal worry lines that run across the forehead.
Perhaps most crucially, Botox injections are not indicated for those with unreasonable expectations. It is critical to remember that Botox injection is not designed to completely eradicate animation lines, but rather to considerably soften certain lines. Typically, a softening of animation lines of at least 80% is possible. Botox injection is unlikely to significantly elevate facial soft tissue in persons who lack considerable depressor or "pulling down" activity in the face. However, patients who take severe depressants frequently experience a compensatory elevation of the brow, cheeks, and neck, referred to as the "lift effect."
Botulinum Toxin Type A is the commercial name for a purified toxin generated by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. Dr. Green injects Botox into the precise muscles that generate wrinkles such as frown lines, crow's feet around the eyes, furrows, and platysmas bands around the neck in extremely small amounts. Botox injections “freeze” these separate muscles, preventing them from contracting. The frowning activity is ceased, and frown lines decrease. A comparable operation can be performed in the brow area to offer a Botox brow lift and a “lift” in the forehead. Botox can be used in conjunction with other dermal fillers, such as Restylane, Juvederm, or Sculptra, to help restore your face's young characteristics in a natural-looking manner.
Botox has been licensed to treat an increasing number of face locations throughout the years. Botox was initially licensed for the treatment of glabellar lines, or furrows between the brows. However, Botox's indications have expanded to encompass a variety of different aesthetic treatment areas.

While many people have heard horror stories about botched Botox procedures, many are unaware that Botox has been used safely and successfully for over 30 years. Botox is extremely safe when administered by professional and registered doctors.
Botox is NOT recommended for those who have an infection at the injection site(s) or who have a known hypersensitivity to any botulinum toxin preparation or to any of the formulation's components. When Botox is intended to be utilized on locations with inflammation or severe weakening or atrophy of the targeted muscles, caution should be exercised.
The majority of people experience no feeling during or after a Botox treatment. Certain individuals may have a little pin prick and a light bit of pressure at the injection sites, with minimal to no pain.
According to the manufacturer, BOTOX is virtually painless. While some may claim that Botox is moderately painful during the injection process, the majority of patients indicate that they do not feel the procedure at all. Certain parts are more sensitive than others.
Botox treatments normally last between 15 and 30 minutes.
Absolutely. Men as well as women can appreciate great results from Botox Cosmetic treatments.
Typically, one treatment every three months is sufficient in the majority of patients. Due to our commitment to conservative therapy, a first-time Botox session may require a second visit two weeks later to provide further treatment if additional correction is desired. Follow-up treatments are not included in the initial treatment and must be purchased separately.
Botox treatment results normally take 14 days to manifest. In rare instances, outcomes may begin as quickly as five days after treatment.
When used to address fine lines and wrinkles, Botox therapy should result in a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles. If additional correction is wanted, follow-up or alternate therapies may be necessary.
Yes, because we believe in taking a conservative approach, a first-time Botox treatment will typically contain up to the recommended dosing for the treated areas. A follow-up session two weeks after treatment may be necessary to administer additional Botox if additional correction is wanted. Follow-up treatments are not included in the initial treatment and must be purchased separately.
No, there is no downtime following Botox; nevertheless, you should avoid receiving a massage, lying on the treated regions, exercising, or drinking on the day of your Botox treatment.
Botox generally has a low rate of adverse effects, occurring in less than 3% of patients. Eyelid drooping was found in 3% of instances following brow line therapy. In 1% of instances, eyelid edema (fluid accumulation) was observed during crow's feet treatment (around the eyes). In 2% of instances, headaches were reported following Botox treatment of forehead wrinkles. While bruising and acne at the injection site are uncommon, they are significant side effects of Botox treatment.
Botox requires no follow-up care. A follow-up session two weeks after treatment may be necessary to administer additional Botox if additional correction is wanted. Follow-up treatments are not included in the initial treatment and must be purchased separately.
Because Botox takes up to two weeks to take action, it is advisable to schedule your treatment at least two weeks before to your big event. This allows for the development of results as well as time for healing if any bruising or acne at the treated spot is detected. Traveling following therapy is entirely safe. On the day of your Botox treatment, you should avoid massages, facials, yoga, exercises, and parties/drinking.
