How does it work?BOTOX® Cosmetic works by simply relaxing the muscles underneath the skin to create a smooth and refreshed appearance.
How is the procedure performed?The BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered using a super-fine needle to avoid any pain, bruising or swelling. The BOTOX® is then injected directly into neuromuscular tissue and it takes 24-72 hours for it to take full effect. In some very rare cases, it may take as long as five days for the full effect to be observed.
How long does the procedure take?After the first consultation to address your aging concerns, the procedure only takes up to 15 minutes. Since there is no downtime – you can do it during your lunch break – and no one would know you have had it done! It is injected with a very tiny needle and only feels like a little pinch.
How do I know if I am a good candidate for BOTOX®?BOTOX® treatments are customized for each patient, and there is no single method that fits all facial types. There are a lot of elements that need to be taken into account, such as whether the face is male or female, eyebrow shape, facial structure, dimension and length of forehead. The practitioners at Skin Vitality have experience in treating thousands of patients with different backgrounds using specific techniques that result in a natural result.
Who should not have BOTOX®?Botulinum toxin should not be used in pregnant or lactating women, as well as people who have had a previous allergic reaction to the drug or any of its ingredients.
Will everyone be able to tell?After a proper BOTOX® treatment, your friends and colleagues should not be able to immediately tell that you’ve had BOTOX®, but they should notice something more refreshed, relaxed and attractive about you.
How long does BOTOX® last? Is it permanent?No – BOTOX® Cosmetic is not permanent. Within two or three days after your injections, the muscles that produce frown lines lose their ability to contract. For the next three months or so after you’re treated, you can’t frown even if you try. After that, the effect gradually decreases until muscles return to normal about six months after the treatment, which can then be repeated. If you follow the directions given to you and book your first 3 appointments promptly every 3 months (without waiting in between!) you can eventually increase the duration results of each treatment.
Where does the Botox® go once it is injected?Botox® Cosmetic will stay local to the muscle where it was injected. After the injection, Botox® Cosmetic is simply metabolized and broken down into a natural by product within hours.
What happens when the treatment wears off?BOTOX® Cosmetic only “stops/slows” the clock of aging. When you stop getting treatments, the “aging clock” resumes like normal. At the very minimum, you will simply return to where you started. If you continuously use BOTOX® Cosmetic for a number of years and then stop – your muscles learn to relax and therefore you will look better than when you started.
How much does it cost?For new patients at Skin Vitality our treatments for 20 Units of BOTOX® can start as low at $87.* However the cost of the treatment varies by each patient and only a personal consultation can give you a more specific amount. The cost can range from $100 and up depending on the amount of BOTOX injections required and the area being treated.
Will I look “Plastic”?No. We will ensure that you get the look you desire – as natural as you want. In our experienced hands we can simply make you look more natural, relaxed and refreshed without anyone noticing you have had anything done.
What are the side effects?Although very rare and not permanent, some people have experience bruising (which can be covered with makeup) or a short-term headache. Most patients do not experience any side effects.
Where is the treatment performed?Your BOTOX® treatment will be performed in the safety and privacy of our medical clinic. You may choose any one of our 10 locations across the Greater Toronto Area and Kitchener – wherever is most convenient for you! Find out the clinic locations.
