What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX COSMETIC® (onabotulinum toxin A) is a Health Canada-approved purified protein and neurotoxin injectable treatment to inhibit the facial muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles.
The magic in BOTOX® lies in its ability to block signals from the nerves to the muscles targeted. Once injected, the targeted muscles won’t be able to contract, meaning that wrinkles, forehead lines, and other facial issues can soften and relax. After your wrinkle reduction treatment, you should see this softening effect in the following days and weeks.
Are Calgary BOTOX COSMETIC® Injections Right For You?
BOTOX® injections are a safe, quick, and effective way to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. If you notice lines and wrinkles between your brows, over your forehead, and around your eyes, then BOTOX COSMETIC® may be an option for you!
For improving skin health and reducing sun damage, texture, pores, discoloration, and deep wrinkles, we often recommend laser and medical esthetic treatments in addition to BOTOX® treatments.
What Areas Are Treated With BOTOX®?
BOTOX COSMETIC® is approved to temporarily reduce muscle movement and soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The most common treatment areas are:
- Between the eyebrows
- Eyebrow lift
- Around the eyes (smile lines/crow’s feet)
- Top sides of the nose
- Masseter muscle/TMJ
- Platysmal bands in the neck
What Are the Benefits Of BOTOX COSMETIC®?
BOTOX COSMETIC® has a well-earned and excellent reputation for relaxing muscles between the brows, around the eyes, and across the forehead. This results in a temporary reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in those areas.
BOTOX® is also approved and widely used to treat medical conditions such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
