What is Botox?
Botox® is a neuromodulator which is extremely effective at relaxing facial muscles creating a smoother, natural appearance of fine lines. It is derived from a naturally occurring protein which has been purified from the bacterium species Clostridium botulinum. Botox® is approved by Health Canada for reducing facial lines and is the #1 non-surgical painless cosmetic procedure in the world. The most commonly treated areas include frown lines (between the eyebrows), brow lift, forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet. It can also be used to treat lower muscles of the face and neck such as mouth frowns, dimpled chins, gummy smiles and neck lines.
How do Neuromodulators Works?
Precise intra-muscular injections block the message from the nerve to the muscle that are responsible for deep wrinkles, thus allowing the muscle to relax preventing deep facial lines from forming on the skin. The overall result is a younger, more relaxed-looking appearance.
- Smooth and younger looking skin

What to Expect
The procedure takes about 15 minutes and the effects from Botox can be seen in 3 days but usually occurs at days 10-14. Results last up to 4 months and it is recommended to repeat the treatment about two to three times per year for maintenance and prevention purposes. Results may last longer with repeated treatments.
