How Do Botox Work?

This treatment work by temporarily blocking the signals to muscles causing them to contract. This results in fewer noticeable lines and wrinkles.

Botox treatment is safe and effective methods approved by the FDA to prevent wrinkle formation.

Botox is injected into an individual’s muscles and work by blocking nerve impulses of the treated muscles which leads to the overall reduction of muscle activity in the injected areas. This in turn, leads to the creation of fewer wrinkles, improving your appearance as the fine lines and wrinkles improve, leaving you with a natural, youthful visage.

When botox is personally administered by an experienced professional, the treatment is highly effective as well as safe.

Botox FAQ's:

Some description text for this item

Botox has been used to provide wrinkle free skin to many areas of the body including the area around your eyes, your eyebrows and your forehead
  • Forehead: Many facial expressions involve the use of your eyebrows. As a result, horizontal creases naturally form on the forehead. Botox can dramatically improve the appearance of these forehead lines while still maintaining natural movement. Most people require between 10-20 units of Botox in this area.
  • Frown Lines: The dreaded 11 Lines or vertical lines that develop between the eyebrows from frowning or concentrating are one of the most common targets of Botox. Dramatic improvements in these lines are typical with Botox. Many patients also experience improvements in headaches from straining these muscles after Botox use. Most people require between 15-30 units of Botox in this area.
  • Eyes (Crow’s Feet): The areas around your eyes are sensitive to daily facial movements. Smiling, squinting, and laughing can result in the formation of Crows Feet lines. Botox can help relax the muscles around your eyes to provide a smoother facial profile so that the wrinkles and creases disappear. Most people require between 12-24 units of Botox in this area.
  • Lips: Lines around the mouth (smoker’s lines) are a difficult problem. Despite the name, they often arise without a smoking history. Improving these lines often requires multiple treatment modalities but Botox is usually the first treatment. Useful adjuncts to improve these lines include Radio frequency and Chemical Peels. Some people can also experience a “Lip Lift” with Botox injections to the upper lip. Most people require between 4-8 units of Botox in this area.
  • Gummy Smile: Some people are embarrassed by the amount of their gums that are exposed when they smile. This is referred to as a gummy smile. The amount of gum show can be decreased with Botox injections into the muscles that elevate the upper lip (levator labii superioris and levator labii superioris alaeque nasi). Most people require between 4-6 units of Botox in this area.
  • Masseter Muscles (Wide Jaw): These muscles contribute to the appearance of a wide jaw. They also contribute to bruxism or clenching. Dr. Pirani regularly injects these muscles for both cosmetic narrowing of the jaw, and to improve pain and tension from clenching (bruxism). Some people with TMJ dysfunction also experience improvements in discomfort with weakening of these muscles. Most people require around 50 units of Botox in this area.
  • Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis): Excessive sweating can be significantly improved with Botox injections. Typical areas treated include the armpits (axilla), palms, and face (craniofacial). Most people require around 100 units of Botox to treat axillary hyperhidrosis.

Even though Botox is a very quick procedure, final results will not be immediately visible post treatment. It takes 2-5 days to begin to see the effects of the Botox treatment in most areas. A slight reduction of wrinkles and facial lines should be noted in these early stages but full effect typically takes 2 weeks for most areas. Areas such as the masseters (jaw) typically take 6 weeks to see the full effects.

Botox Recovery & Results

The beauty of getting a Botox treatment is that you can walk into our office in Toronto on your lunch break, with virtually no downtime after the treatment is over. Results typically begin to appear 2 to 5 days later, with the full benefits being evident after two weeks for most areas.

Even though this is popularly known as a lunch break procedure, you must take caution that you avoid any strenuous activity or exercise for at least 24 hours after your botox treatment. You should also aim to keep your head elevated for a few hours after the treatment. We also recommend that you avoid massaging the injected areas and also avoid taking blood thinning medications which may cause bruising of the skin.

Wrinkle Types Treated With Botox Toronto Cosmetic

Botox is a common and effective treatment for a variety of dynamic wrinkles. Common wrinkles treated with Botox include forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet that form around the outer edge of the eye stretching towards the temple, and frown lines that form at the top of the nose between the eyebrows.

Dynamic Wrinkles

Dynamic wrinkles refer to lines you seen when you move or animate. You do not see them at rest. They form as a result of muscle contraction. As we express ourselves through laughing, crying, smiling or frowning, our facial muscles form these dynamic wrinkles. As muscles contract, the skin over them moves, folds, and stretches, turning into wrinkles and fine lines over time. The repetitive motions our faces make are the cause of these wrinkles, and can be softened and potentially eliminated with the administration of Botox.

Static Wrinkles

Static wrinkles refer to lines that are present even at rest. They represent a progression of dynamic lines over time to creases that are etched into the surface of the skin. Typically, these are more resistant to Botox and require higher doses to treat. They are more likely to require adjunct procedures such as Radio frequency and Chemical Peels in addition to Botox for maximal effect. Botox is still the mainstay initial treatment for these lines, but complete resolution is less likely with Botox alone.

When administered by an expert injector, you should have minimal side effects, especially when you follow your injectors post treatment advice.

Most people only experience mild swelling, redness and rarely slight bruising in the injected areas. The swelling and redness usually only last a few hours.

Contact expert injector at Medical Beauty Skin if you have any questions or concerns regarding your Botox treatment.

As non-invasive as Botox is, it can be easy to over-do certain actions following a Botox procedure. To receive the best results possible, it is important that you avoid these things after your treatment.

  • Exercise: Once injected, Botox needs to settle in your body for 24 hours before you work-out. This also includes any strenuous physical activity. Just take it easy.
  • Rubbing the injection sites: Receiving injections will naturally make you want to rub or massage the injection areas. You need to avoid this to prevent moving the Botox to other areas as this can result in unwanted effects.
  • Consuming alcohol: Drinking alcohol after your Botox procedure could cause you to bruise where you wouldn’t have otherwise. You should also avoid alcohol for a few days before your treatment.
  • Sleeping on your face: This might be a challenge for people who sleep on their stomach, but you need to avoid doing that right after a procedure. Even if you are just taking a simple nap, pressure on your injection sites can cause the Botox to shift out of place.
  • Heat exposure: Due to the redness and swelling that can accompany Botox, you will need to keep yourself in the shade until the swelling goes away. Avoid all sunbathing activities.
  • Blood thinners: Do not take blood thinners following your procedure or right before it. This is to prevent excess bleeding or bruising at the injection sites.

 

It is important that you follow all of experts injector’s aftercare instructions in order to have the best results possible.
