What areas can Botox treat?

Botox® is able to provide a wide range of fantastic treatment options that all work to make patients look great and, more importantly, feel more comfortable in their own skin. This treatment has a growing number of uses, Botox® can ease muscle spasms (for example, spastic responses from cerebral palsy), flatten wrinkles and modifying your jawline! There are currently over 20 different medical conditions that clostridium botulinum toxin is being used to treat, with more being discovered regularly. 

These are the issues our talented Botox® injectors have been extensively trained to treat at Skin Vitality Medical Clinic:

3 New Ways Botox is Revolutionizing Cosmetic Medicine

Botox® is a household name nowadays but most of us are only familiar with its common uses but it is revolutionizing cosmetic medicine in a wide variety of different ways. Aside from its primary wrinkle and fine line treatment applications, Botox® is also able to offer patients a vast array of other, equally valuable aesthetic benefits.

1.) BOTOX FOR JAWLINE RESHAPING 

One of the most popular new applications of Botox® is found in its ability to be an effective jawline reshaping tool. Botox® is able to intercept signals being sent from the nerves to the muscles and stop them, halting muscle contractions and causing a relaxation of the targeted area. This same function works for jawline reshaping by affecting, not wrinkled areas, but the jaw’s masseter muscle group.

Botox® is injected into the masseter, stopping nerve impulse from telling the muscle group to repeatedly clench (and, ultimately, grow in size) and resulting in a controlled atrophy of the area that reduces jaw size. Regular follow-up injections of Botox® can give patients a reduction in jawline size that allows them to enjoy reshaping effects that better fit their desired appearance. 

Jawline reshaping through Botox® gives patients the ability to alter their jawline without having to undergo painful surgeries that require intensive recuperation times. Because Botox® injections are so unobtrusive, patients have begun to make use of it as a nonsurgical jawline reshaping tool regularly, this revolutionary use now becoming an extremely popular treatment that serves as a welcome alternative to traditional reshaping methods.

2.) BOTOX FOR HYPERHIDROSIS 

Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes patients to suffer from abnormally excessive, troublesome sweating. The medical community has long looked to give these sufferers a solution to this problem — one that can often become extremely embarrassing and debilitating — but many options require painful surgeries and promise insufficient results.  Luckily, Botox® for hyperhidrosis has been found to be an effective solution, its natural properties working to help with gland-related ailments with unprecedented success.

Gland reduction is one of Botox®’s many, relatively unheard of properties. Just as it is able to work throughout the rest of the body (and the skin in particular) in blocking neuromuscular transmissions, it’s also able to use this effect in treating overactive glands throughout the body. Excessive sweating is caused entirely by overactive sweat glands that are unable to properly regulate their function. Botox® hyperhidrosis treatment is able to block nervous transmissions directed toward sweat glands, stopping them from frequently causing the glands to produce perspiration. This has the end result of slowing the gland’s sweat production and putting a stop to hyperhidrosis.

3.) BOTOX FOR FACIAL MODIFICATION/RESHAPING 

Just as Botox® is now catching on as an effective jawline reshaping solution, so too can it be used to alter other aspects of the face. In jawline reshaping, Botox® works by reducing the size of built-up muscle groups, lessening the appearance of strong features by naturally causing a weakening and dissolution effect. Botox® is able to alter the shape of the face by blocking neuromuscular transmissions in problematic areas, slowing muscle development and decreasing areas of unwanted muscular build-up.

Botox® is able to provide incredible, effective results that allow a patient to change elements of their face that they find unattractive. The product’s ability to provide natural-looking results through an unobtrusive set of treatments makes it an ideal solution for many. Instead of painful surgeries, regular Botox® injections can give patients the appearance they desire without as many of the difficulties that come along with traditional therapy.

Here are some of the other approved therapeutic uses for Botox®:

The chronic pain associated with most of these conditions was resolved with Botox®. While Botox® is not approved for the treatment of depression, scientific studies have shown that it can improve the mental health condition as well. Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ) is proven to be improved.

How Does Botox work?

Botox® Cosmetic contains onabotulinum toxin A. Botox® is able to intercept signals being sent from the nerves to the muscles and stop them, halting muscle contractions and causing a relaxation of the targeted area. When this substance is injected, how it works is by simply relaxing the facial muscle underneath the skin to create a smooth and refreshed appearance. Botox® is approved by the FDA and Health Canada for the treatment of crow’s feet (those wrinkles that extend from the outer corners of your eyes, and appear most often when you smile or squint) and glabellar lines (the vertical creases between your eyebrows, most prominent when you frown). These are called Botox® 11 lines.

FAQ's About Botox®

BOTOX®, short for Botulinum toxin, is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is utilized to temporarily relax muscles, resulting in reduced fine lines and wrinkles within your appearance. BOTOX® is commonly used to smooth facial lines, particularly in the forehead, around the eyes, and between the eyebrows. Additionally, BOTOX® has various medical uses as well. If interested, please contact us today for a FREE consultation and personalized assessment. 

Botox® Cosmetic contains onabotulinum toxin A. When this substance is injected, how it works is by simply relaxing the facial muscle underneath the skin to create a smooth and refreshed appearance. While this only targets the wrinkles that appear when you make facial expressions, you can consider getting an injectable filler treatment with hyaluronic acid at the same time for any wrinkles and creases that are permanently visible. 

Feeling nervous about your initial BOTOX® treatment is common, but with adequate preparation, there’s no need to worry. This non-invasive injection involves administering Botox to specific areas of concern, with the sensation resembling a mild insect bite, and lasting 10-20 minutes. Results typically appear within 72 hours (about 3 days), reaching full effect in up to 2 weeks. Patients are encouraged to evaluate results after two weeks, whereas a follow-up appointment can be scheduled for a thorough review. 

Botox® results take effect for the next three to four months, preventing muscle movement during this period. The effect gradually diminishes, returning to normal muscle function around six months after treatment. Regular appointments every three months can extend the duration of results. Botox® Cosmetic is not permanent, and the muscle-contracting ability responsible for frown lines is restored within two or three days after injections.  

Botox® Cosmetic will stay local to the muscle where it was injected. However, there is a very minimal risk of migration, particularly if the treated area is rubbed or excessively touched immediately after your injection. For that reason, it’s best to avoid touching the area in the first few days. After your Botox Cosmetic treatment, the product is simply metabolized and broken down into a natural by-product in the weeks and months after your injection. 

The cost of each BOTOX® treatment varies by 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.

During your consultation, it’s advisable to bring questions about BOTOX® treatment. As it is a prescription drug, a licensed physician will discuss your treatment goals and provide details about the procedure day. The targeted area will be assessed to ensure you are a suitable candidate for BOTOX®. While BOTOX® is generally very safe, potential side effects (commonly swelling and temporary discomfort from the injection) will be explained, and your injector will guide you on managing any issues. Preparing for treatment may involve avoiding blood-thinning medications a week prior, taking Arnica pills, and considering anti-inflammatory options like pineapple. 

All Botox® treatments are conducted by a certified medical injector, ensuring safety and privacy within our medical clinics. You have the flexibility to choose from any of our 13 locations across the Greater Toronto Area, based on your convenience. Our clinics are situated in Toronto, Mississauga, Oakville, London, Ajax, Richmond Hill, Kitchener, St. Catharine’s, Milton, Burlington, Stoney Creek, Hamilton, and Whitby. 

The results of Botox® typically begin to appear within a couple of days post injection. However, the full results may take up to 2 weeks to develop, so it is important to wait an adequate amount of time before seeking a touch-up treatment.  

After using Botox® continuously for years, your muscles will become trained not to make wrinkle-forming expressions as aggressively. This is great because even after Botox® wears off, there can be lasting effects that prevent the formatting of wrinkles that are responsible for the look of old age. 

The Botox® lip flip can be performed at Skin Vitality and it is an excellent alternative to fillers for patients who want a more subtle lip enhancement, as well as those who want to enhance the shape of their upper lip with minimal effort. 

Rare but not permanent, some may encounter a brief headache after BOTOX® treatment. To reduce the risk, refrain from aspirin-containing products before or within a day after the injection, using Tylenol if necessary. Relaxation during the injection aids in headache prevention. While temporary bruising or swelling may occur, a skilled medical injector minimizes lasting discomfort. After treatment:  
– Avoid rubbing the treated area. 
Maintain an upright position for four hours. 
– Avoid working out for the remainder of the day. 
– Consider applying a cold compress for faster recovery from minor side effects like bruising and red dots. 

As of February 1st, 2003, OHIP will cover intramuscular botulinum toxin (Botox®) injections to treat focal spasticity secondary to an upper motor neuron disorder such as cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal cord or traumatic brain injury. The ministry does not pay for services that are not medically necessary. OHIP currently insures botulinum toxin injections for treatment of oculomotor and laryngeal disorders.  

During your initial BOTOX® treatment, your injector will review your medical history, address concerns, and mark targeted areas of concern. The procedure, lasting 10-20 minutes with a fine needle to minimize discomfort, is followed by before-and-after photos to track progress. The BOTOX® injections feel very similar to a small insect bite, with many patients explaining there is some mild discomfort, but it is not painful. Speak to your medical injector about a topical numbing cream prior to your treatment if you have a lower pain tolerance. Full effects take 24-72 hours, with results assessed after one to two weeks. A follow-up appointment with your injector can be scheduled accordingly to review your full results. 

BOTOX® treatments are personalized for each patient, considering factors like facial structure, eyebrow shape, and forehead dimensions. Our experienced medical injectors at Skin Vitality use specific techniques to achieve natural results, tailoring the approach to diverse backgrounds. BOTOX® is most effective for those without a history of neuromuscular diseases, mentally and physically healthy adults willing to handle the potential mild side effects. Ideal candidates understand the treatment’s limitations, such as its effectiveness in addressing permanent creases or adding volume and manage realistic expectations. Results vary, requiring patience and follow-up sessions for desired outcomes. An ideal BOTOX® candidate should be patient and willing to undergo follow-up sessions that allow them to enjoy the results they desire.
