Botox® FAQ’s

Will my face still have expression?

Botox Cosmetic® 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 muscle 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.

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. In 2001, Health Canada approved Botox Cosmetic® for wrinkle therapy.

What is the treatment like?

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.

How long does a treatment take?

A Botox Cosmetic® procedure is quick, simple, and there is no downtime. Following a facial analysis by your physician and a discussion on your desired outcome, the procedure itself only takes about 10-15 minutes to perform.
