Botox Cosmetic is currently the most popular cosmetic treatment in Toronto & Oshawa, ON. It’s the treatment of choice for women and men who want to look a little younger without a lot of hassle.
We use Botox to treat:
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Bands in the neck
Frown lines, those vertical lines between the eyebrows, are the most common indication. In some cases, Botox cosmetic can also be useful for treating excessive sweating, migraine headaches, and joint pain.
How does Botox work?
A Botox treatment involves a series of simple injections that can be finished in 30 minutes or less. Using a thin needle, we inject Botox into the small forehead muscles that frequently contract to cause frown lines. Botox blocks the neurotransmitters that tell these muscles to move. By relaxing the muscles, the skin flattens out and the wrinkles disappear.
After Botox injection, what should I expect?
You can return to your life right away after a Botox treatment. Minor bruising or swelling can appear at the injection site, which can be hidden with makeup.
How long does Botox last?
The results typically last up to 4 months. You can schedule another treatment when the results fade.
Does Botox have side effects?
Possible Botox side effects in include bruising, swelling, redness or itching at the injection site. Allergic reactions, fatigue, headache, flu-like symptoms, or eyelid droop are also possible.
