An increasing number of people are turning to Botox as a preventative and immediate solution in dealing with the signs of ageing.

Botox TM/Xeomin TM
Botulinum Toxin Type A treatment is used for frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet.
Reducing the function of specific facial muscles can treat prominent forehead creases, brow furrows or eye lines (crow’s feet). The Neurotoxins (Botox™ and Xeomin™) are sterile, purified proteins produced from the bacteria, Clostridium botulinum in the laboratory. Neurotoxins injected in small amounts into facial muscles bind to the nerve endings supplying the muscle and prevent nerve impulses from travelling to the muscle. When injected into a muscle, it weakens or paralyzes the muscle around the area injected for a typical period of several months. The resultant weakening or paralyzing effect on the facial muscle temporarily eliminates previous skin creasing, and new skin creasing is avoided. Botox may take several days to have its effect, and the effect typically lasts 3-6 months, in most individuals, before full muscle movement returns. At that point, the treatment may be repeated as desired.*

1. BOTOX Cosmetic TM.
This is the first treatment used in Canada for treating Frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet. Botox Cosmetics TM targets what are known as dynamic wrinkles, which are caused by repeated muscular contractions, such as frowning and squinting. It is an injectable treatment derived from a purified protein and works by relaxing the muscles that cause these dynamic wrinkles, giving your face a more relaxed and refreshed appearance. In addition, treatment is so quick and easy that you can often have it done over lunch. The results from a BOTOX COSMETIC TM treatment are natural-looking and will give you a refreshed appearance. Botox Cosmetic has been clinically proven to last up to four months. Actual treatment results may vary.
Botox Cosmetics can be combined with Juvederm facial fillers to treat volume loss and folds in the mid to lower face creating the SoftLift.*
