Cosmetic Botox® Procedures are Safe, Effective and Health Canada Approved
Botox® is a safe purified neurotoxin protein that is approved by Health Canada and FDA. Small amounts are carefully injected directly into the muscle by our skilled physicians. Nerve impulses are blocked from reaching the muscles, which are then unable to contract and form wrinkles or lines.
Deeper wrinkles may require a combination of Botox® and Juvederm® cosmetic wrinkle filler. This is called a Softlift® procedure.
It is extremely rare to develop any Botox® side effects. However, we don’t recommend Botox® treatments for our patients who are pregnant, nursing or experiencing neurological disorders.

Who are the best candidates for Botox®?The best candidates for Botox (r) are people who are in good general health and who do not have a neuromuscular disease such as myasthenia gravis. Pregancy and breast feeding are contraindicated for Botox (r) treatments. People with skin problems in the injection area, droopy eyelids or significant facial asymmetry are not good candidates.
Where will the procedure take place?Botox (r) injections are performed in the office in a comfortable environment. The procedure is quick and can be done during a lunch break.
Will I need anesthesia?No anesthesia is required for the procedure. Cold packs can be applied to the area before treatment.
How long will it take?The actual procedure only takes a few minutes. The initial consultation takes about half an hour and pictures are taken before the treatment.
Will there be any pain?The procedure is not typically painful, and any injection can hurt a little. However, a very fine gauge needle is used to make the procedure comfortable.
How long will the recovery period be?There really is no recovery period! You may resume normal activities after the treatment. I do not recommend strenuous exercise for the first twenty-four hours to prevent spread of the Botox (R).
Will I miss work?You will not need to take time off work for the procedure.
What are the risks?As with any medical procedure, there can be some risks or complications with Botox(R) treatments. Some such as bruising or swelling can last for hours or days, and some may last for the duration of the Botox(R).
How long will the effects last?Typically the effects of the Botox(R) last 3 – 4 months. Over several years, you may notice the effect lasting longer as the muscles atrophy.
