BOTOX Cosmetics is intended to enhance the way you look, not change it. When administered by an experienced physician, you can still smile, frown and be expressive. The treatment only relaxes the muscles beneath the lines at the point of injection, so the other elements of your facial expression remain active. It also has no effect on the sensory nerves, so you will have normal feeling in the treated areas.
BOTOX has been licensed in Canada since 1990 as a safe and effective treatment for a variety of medical conditions. In 2001, Health Canada approved BOTOX Cosmetics for wrinkles therapy, and it has been proven to be safe through extensive research and testing.
A tiny amount of BOTOX Cosmetic 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. The sensation has been compared to a bug bite. No sedation or local anesthetic is required, and you can resume normal activities immediately.
A BOTOX Cosmetic procedure is quick, simple, and there’s no downtime. Following a facial analysis by your physician and a discussion on your desired outcome, the procedure itself only takes about 10 to 15 minutes to perform.
The costs associated with a treatment are dependent on the amount of product needed and the areas of the face being treated. The treatment results generally last up to four months.
There are very few restrictions regarding the use of BOTOX Cosmetic. Those who have a neurological disease should not be treated.
You can expect to see results within days after your treatment. The appearance of wrinkles and lines may continue to diminish for up to one week.
Side effects are rare and these should be discussed with your Doctor.
There is no scientific evidence that supports that creams work better than BOTOX Cosmetic. Creams work well on the surface of the skin. BOTOX Cosmetic works below the surface to relax the muscles that cause the lines and wrinkles to form. Often retail products, for at home daily use, are recommended in conjunction with quarterly Botox Cosmetic treatments. The skin care improves the quality of the skin and the Botox treatments relaxes the facial muscles to provide a more youthful and radiant appearance.
The effects usually last up to four months. After repeat treatments, the effects may begin to last longer.
