Everything You Need To Know About Botox

If the signs of aging are something you are looking to correct without resorting to plastic surgery, then Botox injections are a gentle, risk-free alternative that will quickly rejuvenate your appearance.

What is Botox Cosmetic?

BOTOX is the commercial name of ‘botulinum toxin’, a purified protein of bacterial origin. Used in a highly diluted form, it can be used to treat unwanted wrinkles and fine lines.

Approved by both the FDA and Health Canada, BOTOX is a safe and effective anti-aging skin  treatment which firms and rejuvenates your appearance.  

What Can Botox Treat?

The aim of BOTOX injections is to relax your facial muscles and smooth over your wrinkles, eliminating any unwanted fine facial lines.

This anti-aging skin treatment is effective on almost all zones of your face including:

  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Frown lines (found between the eyebrows)
  • Brow ridge
  • Crows feet
  • Lower eyelids
  • Laugh lines
  • Neck

How Does Botox Work?

BOTOX blocks signals from the nerves to your muscles. The injected muscles cannot contract, causing wrinkles to relax and soften.

Botox requires no anesthetic. It is injected into the skin using an extremely fine needle and as such is a relatively quick and painless procedure.

Our skin care specialists will ensure that you stay relaxed and experience minimal discomfort throughout your procedure.

Duration of Treatment No longer than 15 minutes.
**Treatment time can vary depending on the size and location of affected area**
Number of Treatments Needed The effects of Botox are long lasting but not permanent.
A treatment is required approximately every 3-4 months.
**Results tend to be cumulative and many patients find they require less Botox and fewer treatments over time**
Recovery Period It is common to experience slight bruising and a headache after the treatment, though these side effects tend to resolve within 24 hours.
Results You will see visible results within 5-14 days of your treatment.
Results can last for up to 12 weeks.

  • Minimal side effects/No downtime
  • Affordable
  • Short treatment time

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
