Q

Botox: Is Botox safe?

A

Botox has been used medically in Canada for almost 30 years and studied in over 4000 published studies. Botox is an organic compound that nobody is allergic to. In the hands of an experienced injector, adverse affects are rare.

Q

When the Botox wears off will I look even worse?

A

Certainly not. While the Botox is effective you will learn to use other muscles that “break the habit” of a negative frown or squint. Once the habit has been broken and facial muscles have been “retrained”, you may even requite less botox to maintain a youthful look year after year.

Q

How often will I have to get injections to maintain the effects?

A

Initially you may require treatments every 3 to 4 months to have Botox be most effective. However, as the muscles relax you will require less Botox at less frequent intervals

Q

Why is there such variability in cost?

A

At the present time there is only one approved Cosmetic Botox available in Canada. Reputable physicians will only use this product and not imported competitor clones. The cost of Genuine Botox Cosmetic supplies is a significant part of the treatment price.

Q

Will Botox make me look “plastic”?

A

There is a “Science and Art” to the use of Botox to avoid stone face or plastic looking results. The Art can only be perfected with experience. Experienced and ethical physicians will use the minimum of injections to soften your lines to give you a refreshed and relaxed appearance, and not inject excessively to inflate your face, or your budget!
