You notice them every morning in the dreaded mirror. Those wrinkles on your forehead, the crow’s feet around your eyes, and the frown lines between your brows. You look older than you feel – you look older than you should. You want to look young again. You want your beauty back.
You thought about surgery, but you’re not ready for a facelift. You want something with an immediate result which is cost effective, quick, and easy.
What is Botox?
Botox is a cosmetic injectable used to reduce deep, facial lines which are caused by muscle activity. It is a quick procedure which involves a series of tiny injections to deliver a revitalized facial appearance by flattening frown lines, crow’s feet, and lines across your forehead.
Its formula includes an exact amount of a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium, Clostridium Botulinum.
It’s best applied to the upper face areas of:
• The forehead
• Around the eyes (for crow’s feet)
• Between brows (glabella)
It relaxes the muscles which cause age lines to form and results can lasts for up to four months. Individual results may vary. Botox is a well-tested treatment which has been used globally for anti-aging treatment. It is the most popular cosmetic procedure in Toronto and is one of Canada MedLaser Clinic’s most requested procedures.
Botox requires health care professionals who are highly trained and dedicated to your beauty. Applicators who are less familiar with proper technique could leave you with a frozen or perpetual surprised expression. Our Toronto based health care professionals are intimately familiar with Botox, as well as the intricate anatomy of the proposed treatment areas on your face and neck.
Who is a Candidate for Botox?
Botox candidates include men and women who wish to look more youthful and energetic. Unlike facelift surgery, Botox is quick, simple, and minimally invasive. Apart from removing wrinkles, Botox may be useful for migraine headaches, sweating, and facial muscle spasms.
The Botox Treatment
Botox injections consist of a highly-purified protein and is very safe when administered by a skilled injector. Typically, Botox treatment areas are the muscles on your forehead and the little corrugator muscles between your eyebrows. It relaxes the facial muscles which cause wrinkles, smoothing the lines in the skin which make you look old and tired.
Your Botox specialist will determine where to administer several tiny botox injections to achieve the best aesthetic results. No anesthesia is required, although a cold pack or a topical anesthetic cream is possible before injection. The entire procedure takes approximately ten minutes.
Avoid a Frozen Face
We strive to produce natural results. This outcome is possible by making sure your muscles aren’t too relaxed.
We opt for a moderate effect, so you keep your natural ability to express emotions through facial movements. Too often a frozen face is caused by too much injection. Our training and experience will ensure a natural result. We feel it’s better to touch-up later, then to deal with the outcome of a heavy-handed injection.
Recovery from Botox Injections
Botox injections require no downtime. You may return to your normal activities after your procedure.
Discomfort is brief and minimal, and visible side effects are rare, although some patients develop pale bruises at the injection site, you can hide this temporary blemish with makeup.
Within several days, you’ll see a marked improvement that may continue to improve for approximately one week – lasting 4-6 months. Individual results may vary.
Side Effects from Botox Injections

After your Botox injections, you can resume your day. There is little to no down time and your Botox specialist may give you specific aftercare instructions.
Q: Are Botox Injections available for men?
Yes. Botox injections have also been clinically assessed in male patients. In these studies for moderate to severe frown lines, 17.5% of patients treated with Botox injections were men.

Though it may not be able to turn back time, one can turn back the signs of it on ones face. As one age, one may experience fine lines and wrinkles. The skin may begin to sag, and one may even begin to see volume loss in face, caused by fat loss. While the idea of fat loss may make many happy, when it happens in face, it can make the cheeks appear hollow and lips thin, which can make look older.
In many cases, choosing the right cosmetic injectable and filler can help to correct these and other signs of aging. The popular injectable muscle relaxer, Botox can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as *tighten the skin, making it appear more youthful.Fillers can help to plump up lips, to fill lines and wrinkles, or to fill out cheeks. The overall effect will be a softer, younger look for whole profile.
Don’t accept the sad reality of time. One can take control over the aging process by choosing the right cosmetic injectables and fillers to get the good appearance. The results will appear natural, so everyone will just think that one is looking good and ageing well and slowly.
The visible results of Botox and fillers can last anywhere from *4 months to a year. This varies from patient to patient depending on the lifestyle of the patient and area of the treatment. The more often that area is used and moved (for example the mouth), the less time the fillers tend to stay before dissolving.
When the time comes for the body to break down the molecules of the cosmetic injection used on the patient, the body naturally excretes them with zero side effects. This process usually takes a few months from initial disintegration.
While the body is naturally breaking down the Botox and filler molecules, many patients decide to get a “touch up”. This is the most cost effective way suggested to keep the results long lasting.
Canada MedLaser uses Botox as their primary choice for muscle relaxer, and Revanesse and Juvederm as fillers. These are all relatively painless cosmetic injections, and the longest lasting on the market.
Many people may wonder what the difference between Botox and fillers may be and what decisions need to be made before a treatment is performed.
The answer is very simple. Botox is a muscle “relaxer”. It freezes the muscles on site and prevents them from creasing. It also works great as a preventative measure to slow down the visible aging process. Both Botox and fillers require a unique number of units to be used in different areas.
Fillers such as Revanesse and Juvederm work as cosmetic enhancements for different areas of the face. They have the ability to make any area look visibly bigger, smaller, more plump or smoother. Fillers are popular for areas such as around the mouth, the lips, cheeks, under the eyes to eliminate dark circles and/or bags, and many other areas.
Fillers come in many different forms, varied by their molecular size. The size of the molecules used on a patient is determined by the treatment site. Where the injection needs deeper penetration, such as the cheeks, a thicker molecular size may be used, but when it’s a superficial injection, such as around the mouth, a thinner molecular filler size needs to be used in order to prevent clumping and unevenness.
