how does BOTOX work?
It targets what are known as dynamic wrinkles, which are caused by repeated muscular contractions, such as frowning and squinting. It is an injectable treatment derived from a purified protein, that works by relaxing the muscle that causes these dynamic wrinkles, giving your face a more relaxed and refreshed appearance.
This blocks the nerve impulse from reaching the treated area, and as a result the muscles relax. As the muscles relax, the dynamic wrinkles overlying the muscles are smoothed away.
Botox Cosmetic can be used to treat frown lines, forehead worry lines, crowsfeet, nasal bunny lines, peri-oral lip lines, horizontal and vertical neck lines, the corners of the mouth and depressed brows. The treatment only relaxes the muscles beneath the wrinkles at the injection site, so the other elements of facial expression remain active and you will still look natural.In addition, treatment is so quick and easy that you can often have it done on your lunch.
where can BOTOX be used?
Treatment areas include the frown lines between the eyebrows, the horizontal lines that run across your forehead, nasal bunny lines, peri-oral lip lines, neck lines and the crows feet around the outer eye area.
Are BOTOX COSMETIC treatments safe?
BOTOX has been licensed in Canada since 1990 as a safe and effective treatment for a variety of medical conditions. BOTOX COSMETIC has been approved for use since 2001.
What is a treatment like?
A tiny amount of BOTOX is injected very precisely into the muscle being treated. A very fine needle and a small amount of liquid is used so the pain associated with the injection is minimal.
How soon will I see a difference?
You can expect to see results within a few days after your first treatment. The appearance of wrinkles and lines may continue to diminish for up to 10 days. The effects usually last up to six months.
What are the side effects?
The side effects can be low levels of pain, tenderness, and or bruising at the sight of the injection.
