ARE BOTOX TREATMENTS SAFE?

Absolutely. Botox has been licensed in Canada since 1990 as a safe and effective treatment for a variety of medical conditions through extensive research and testing.

HOW LONG DOES A TREATMENT TAKE?

A Botox procedure is quick, simple and there is no downtime. Following an analysis and discussion, the procedure itself only takes about 10 to 15 minutes to perform.

HOW IS BOTOX ADMINISTERED?

Botox is injected into the tight muscle(s). A very fine needle is used to inject the muscle in one or more places and feels much like a tiny pinprick. No sedation or local anaesthetic is required, and you can resume normal activities immediately.

HOW SOON WILL I SEE A DIFFERENCE?

Cosmetic: Five to ten days
Headaches: 1-2 weeks
Excessive Sweating: Within 3 days

HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT LAST?

Cosmetic: The effects usually last up to four months. After repeat treatment, the effects may begin to last longer.

Excessive Sweating: The effects can last for 6-12 months

WHAT SIDE EFFECTS MAY BE EXPERIENCED WHEN USING BOTOX?

All medications have some side effects but with Botox they are minimal, temporary and may depend on the location of the muscle being treated. Some people notice temporary weakness of muscles or minimal discomfort at the spot where the needle is injected.
