Injections for Wrinkle Prevention and Treatment
“Botox” injection is a commonly used cosmetic procedure to temporarily relax facial muscles to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The word “botox” is a term used to describe a host of neuromodulators approved by Health Canada for the treatment of wrinkles. Neuromodulators are derived from naturally occurring microorganisms which cause muscle relaxation. “Botox” can be used in small doses of cosmetic and therapeutic procedures and is considered safe and well-tolerated. We use a variety of neuromodulators brands including Xeomin, Botox, Dysport and Nuceiva.
The procedure involves the injection of botox using a fine needle directly under the area of skin with fine lines/wrinkles. For best results, all neurotoxins should be administered by experienced healthcare professionals as its application is as much an art, as it is a medical procedure. There is minimal discomfort in this procedure! We ensure you are fully informed of potential discomfort and will be supportive and proactive in managing any pain or discomfort you may experience.
Our experienced cosmetic injectors will help you achieve a more youthful and natural look. Since wrinkles are caused by habitual facial expressions, early application of neuromodulators can work to prevent the worsening of existing wrinkles and the development of new ones.
