Serving Calgary and surrounding areas.
Very few procedures have transformed cosmetic and anti-aging medicine as dramatically as BOTOX® Cosmetic. This minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedure reverses the signs of aging by temporarily improving the appearance of facial wrinkles.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a great option if you experience mild to moderate facial aging and would prefer to avoid the extensive plastic surgery associated with a facelift. The best way to determine whether BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you is to speak with Dr. Dave Sinha BMEd, MD, FCFP, CHI in person. Please call (587) 574-4569 today to schedule a consultation at our Calgary office.
HOW BOTOX® COSMETIC WORKS
Facial muscles contract whenever you make a facial expression. Through this constant muscle movement, the skin becomes less elastic and draws together, resulting in the formation of wrinkles and frown lines.
When BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into specific facial regions, it blocks your nerve impulses from activating the muscle contractions that cause wrinkles to develop. As a result, your skin will appear relaxed and smoother.
What Areas Can Be Treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® treatments can be performed in a number of locations, including
- Between your brows
- Eye Area
- Smile lines
- Neck (tech-neck)
- Masseter (jaw) muscle
- Underarm (hyperhidrosis)
BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments are fast and virtually painless. The procedure only takes about 10 to 15 minutes, and there is virtually no recovery time.
Most patients usually see an improvement in the appearance of wrinkles within three to five days, although results will vary. The effects of your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment last approximately three to five months. With repeated treatment, you can see longer-lasting effects.
