The Benefits of Botox

Don't get surgery to resolve your concerns when you can undergo a simple injectable treatment that takes just minutes!

Botox is a straightforward injectable procedure that can:

  • smooth away wrinkles around the eyes and across the forehead so you don't look tired and angry all of the time
  • erase vertical furrows between the brows (glabellar lines) so you look more refreshed and relaxed
  • reduce the sharpness of your jawline to make it less angular
  • gently and subtly curve the upper lip outward to increase its prominence
  • reduce excessive sweating in the armpits (hyperhidrosis) to eliminate pit stains and body odor

The treatment takes just 15 to 30 minutes, and in a few days, the Botox will take effect and you'll be able to see your results. You'll be able to your new look for about 4 months or so.

There's no surgery, no knives and no intense recovery period!

What is Botox?

Botox is a the trade name for a substance called onabotulinumtoxinA, a type of botulinum toxin. This may sound scary, but in actuality this toxin has been used for decades to treat a variety of health issues. In small and controlled doses, Botox offers therapeutic benefits. Spasticity, strabismus (crossed eyes), stress urinary incontinence and chronic migraines are all issues that have been successfully treated with this medicine.

How does Botox work?

Botox is injected into the area of concern, where it targets the nerves responsible for signalling muscle contraction and the transmission of pain sensation. This prevents the nerves from "overworking", thereby resolving the particular health issue.

In fact, the wrinkle smoothing effects of Botox were discovered while doctors were treating patients for strabismus back in the 1980s!

  • To smooth away wrinkles, Botox relaxes the muscles that cause the skin in the area to crease.
  • To make the jawline less angular, Botox relaxes the masseter muscles so they become less bulky.
  • For an upper lip flip, Botox targets the orbicularis oris, a muscle that is responsible for controlling the mouth and lips.
  • To reduce excessive sweating, Botox targets the nerves responsible for signalling the sweat glands to work.

The Botox Treatment

Once a consultation is done to ensure that Botox is safe for you and it can help you achieve your desired results, you'll be able to undergo the treatment.

The procedure takes just a few minutes to complete. The targeted area is cleansed to reduce the risk of infection and then Botox is administered by a series of tiny injections. A topical anesthetic can be applied beforehand to improve comfort.

Once the injections have been made, the area is cleansed again and you'll be free to go.

There are a few things that you may need to do afterward for a few hours to improve the effectiveness of your treatment:

  • keep the treated area elevated
  • avoid submerging the area in water or using a sauna
  • avoid touching the area too much or applying unsanitary skincare products or cosmetics
  • don't drink alcohol

You'll be given post-treatment instructions on the day of your treatment. Please follow them to see the optimal results of your Botox treatment faster.

The No Surgery Facelift

A facelift may not be your only option when it comes to overall facial rejuvenation. If you're not ready for surgery, consider the No Surgery Facelift.

This procedure combines Botox and dermal fillers for a no-knives approach to erasing years off of your face. The injectable treatment will smooth away all of those pesky wrinkles, lines and furrows that have only gotten worse over the years. It will also replace the fullness that you've lost, whether it be in your lips, cheeks and/or temples.

Our talented plastic surgeons look at your face as a whole before zeroing in on the specific areas that are of concern. That way, each area is modified only proportionately in order to achieve a harmonious result.

The No Surgery Facelift is truly a comprehensive approach to facial aging that will give you a natural looking improvement.
