BOTOX COSMETIC® is a highly sought after (or leading) non-invasive injectable treatment used to smooth wrinkles and slow down the signs of aging. Botulinum Toxin is the scientific name for this neurotoxic protein which is derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is purified 27 times before it becomes the safe anti-aging product we know as BOTOX COSMETICⓇ. At Medical Rejuvenation Centre, Dr. Morrell and his staff of highly experienced healthcare professionals use BOTOX to freshen your appearance by enhancing your natural contours.
BOTOX is a purified protein that works by temporarily blocking nerve impulses to targeted muscles. It weakens the muscle so that it can’t contract, thereby relaxing and softening wrinkles. These non-invasive injections are administered directly into the desired treatment area. The most popular area for treatment is the face to target deep wrinkles, improve lines and aid in anti-aging. You may feel a momentary pinch or tingle when the product is injected. Generally, the effects are noticeable within 4 days and fully effective after 2 weeks.
Appointments are usually completed within 15 minutes and you can resume most regular activities immediately. The injector will advise you that you may resume other activities such as working out, 4 hours after your treatment.
When administered by a licensed professional, BOTOX injections are safe. BOTOX is well researched and has been widely used clinically for 40 years. There are no long-term side effects. Short-term complications may include slight pain, swelling or bruising at the injection area and possibly a mild headache.
BOTOX is the most widely researched medicine in the world and globally distributed. The purified protein, BOTOX COSMETICⓇ by Allergan, is considered a safe anti-wrinkle treatment and was approved for cosmetic injections by Health Canada in 2001.
Most patients enjoy lasting results for 3-4 months. First-time users may see the effects fade quicker, while long-term users may see the anti-wrinkle effects gradually last longer.
Your individual needs will determine the number of BOTOX units needed to treat the specified area. To determine your needs, it’s best to have a consultation with a qualified health professional at Medical Rejuvenation Clinic.
Generally, men require more BOTOX units to relax the muscles than women, since they tend to have stronger face muscles. The lines above your eyebrow are called glabellar lines. The recommended dose for men is 40 units, while for women the recommended dose is up to 20 units.
The general guide for BOTOX injections from Allergan suggests 12 units around each eye for crow’s feet, 20 units total above the eyebrows and 20 units for horizontal forehead lines. That is a total of 64 units to treat all three areas to help diminish forehead wrinkles and brighten your eyes. However, this is a guide and some patients may need much less for efficacy, anywhere from 10 30 units.
