Botox (Botulinum toxin type A) injections are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments performed worldwide. Botox is Health Canada approved, non-surgical procedure that temporarily diminishes or eliminates wrinkles on the forehead, roots of the nose, outer corner of the eyes and neck. It is also a popular option used to raise the lateral brow, a “chemical brow lift”, as well as improving down turned corners of the lip.
Botox works by weakening muscles contraction that causes facial lines and wrinkled appearance. The treatment takes only a few minutes and maximal results can be seen within a week. The procedure requires no aesthesia or recovery time. The final effect stays for at least 3 months; application can be repeated after some time.
The use of Botox on a regular basis every 3 months to 6 months for approximately 2 years may lead to long term wrinkle reduction without the need for continued injections or less frequent treatments.
Botox for Hyperhidrosis
Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating is a condition affecting many people and causing major discomfort in day-to-day activities. Hyperhidrosis can be managed using different approaches. In our clinic we use Botox injections that temporarily blocks signals to sweat glands, reducing local sweat production in underarms, palms or feet. This is a highly effective treatment with lasting results.
