Botox® is a popular Heath Canada approved non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases and crow’s feet. Botox® works by weakening muscle contraction that causes facial lines and wrinkles appearance. Botox® is also a popular option used raise the lateral brow, a “chemical brow lift,” as well as improving down turned corners of the lip. Physicians have been taking advantage of this effect in medical treatments since the late 1980s when the FDA first approved Botox® for medical. Studies suggest that Botox® may also be effective in relieving migraine headaches and excessive sweating.
A Botox® treatment only takes a few minutes and maximal results can be seen within a week. A fine needle is used to inject the Botox® into specific facial muscles; the procedure requires no aesthesia or recovery time. All injections are performed by College Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Elmaraghy in our relaxing spa atmosphere. The results from a single Botox® treatment will generally last between four to six months.
The use of Botox® on a regular basis every 4 months to 6 months for approximately 2 years may lead to long term wrinkle reduction without the need for continued injections or less frequent treatments.
