What Is Botox?

Botox is best known for its cosmetic application as a popular nonsurgical injection that temporarily diminishes the appearance of facial fine lines and wrinkles. Commonly treated areas include crow’s feet, forehead creases, frown lines and lip lines.

Injections of botulinum toxin prevent the nerve signals to the muscle and, therefore, impede muscle contractions. As a result, wrinkles and fine lines diminish temporarily.

The effects of Botox generally last 3 to 4 months.
Botox injections in the face can improve the appearance* of:

  • Crow’s feet
  • A dimpled chin
  • Frown lines
  • Forehead wrinkles

Botox is most commonly administered between the eyes, on the edges of the eyes, on the forehead, and around the lips. However, Botox can also be applied in other parts of the body to relieve medical symptoms such as migraines, hyperactive bladder, or excessive sweating. Our clinic only administers Botox injections for cosmetic purposes.


How Does the Botox
Treatment Work?

The Quickest, Most Effective Injectable Treatment

Cosmetic Botox is used to temporarily freeze the muscles that cause unwanted wrinkles in your face.

Two types of wrinkles can exist on your face: static (formed by lax tissues) or dynamic (formed by repetitive movements such as smiling or frowning). The Botox treatment is effective on dynamic wrinkles because it prevents the muscles of a specific, targeted area to contract. As the muscle relaxes, the skin appears smoother and more refreshed.

Benefits of Botox Injections

Botox is a simple, non-surgical treatment that temporarily reduces the appearance of unwanted lines and wrinkles.

Botox is one of the most celebrated anti-aging treatments, recognized as:

  • Safe
  • Efficient
  • Quick
  • With little to no side effects

Botox is a remedy to facial lines and wrinkles caused by age, stress and other environmental factors.

With Botox injections, deep lines and wrinkles can virtually disappear. Botox injections can also produce a lifting effect by relaxing the muscles that pull down on the eyebrows*.

Other benefits include*:

  • No downtime
  • Virtually painless


What to Expect

Although Botox injections are administered with the use of a very thin needle, and the procedure is usually well tolerated, when you first arrive at your appointment, we may apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area.

Small amounts of botulinum toxin will then be injected into your skin or muscles. The amount of injections needed depend on your condition, the extent of the area being treated and the desired effects.

Injections are administered at our Montreal clinic. A typical treatment will take approximately 30 minutes.

After the Treatment

There is no downtime required after a Botox treatment and you can resume your normal daily activities right after the procedure. Minor bruising may occur for a few days. You will be informed on any specific instructions and on possible side effects.

*Results may vary. Talk to our doctors to find-out if you are an appropriate candidate for this procedure.
