Medical Injectables

Botox and dermal fillers are cosmetic, non-surgical treatments given through injections. This is where the similarities between Botox and fillers end, however. Both Botox and Dermal Fillers are popular cosmetic procedures, and both have different uses.

Botox

Botox freezes muscles to stop wrinkles caused by facial expressions, such as crow’s feet. Botox injections are common in the upper face, such as the forehead and around the eyes. The results from Botox last around three to four months.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid and similar substances to “fill” or plump areas that have lost volume or smoothness. Areas include the lips, cheeks, and around the mouth. Dermal filler results vary and typically last between four to twelve months, depending on the volume of filler used and the individual’s metabolism.
Botox and fillers can be used in conjunction with one another during an appointment in order to treat different areas.

Frequently Asked Questions

Botox is a brand name for a neuromodulator. Botox is one of the most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedures in Canada. With a wide range of ages using botox cosmetic services. Botox Cosmetic works by temporarily reducing the activity of the underlying muscles in the area Botox is injected.

How Botox Injections work

Botox as an anti-aging treatment

Botox is injected with a fine needle into facial muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles in your face.

The injection of any botulinum toxin, such as Botox, or other injectables, is a safe, regulated procedure. These procedures should only be administered by a medical professional in a spa, medical centre, or clinic.

Why is Botox used?

What are Fillers?
Dermal Fillers are a natural hyaluronic volume building product injected into the lower layers of the skin to build up lost volume or create new volume. There are many brands and types of hyaluronic fillers created for each area and each need. This is what you use to fill the cheeks and plump the lips! Fillers typically last 4-12 months, depending on the volume used and each individual’s metabolism.
When will I see results?
Botox will take 7-14 days to fully “kick in” and see the true results. Filler results will be immediate but you will see a 1-2 week “swelling period” where the volume will appear to be more and then it settles into a final result.
How often do I need to book?
Botox is done every 3-4 months to maintain results and filler is done every 6-18 months or as necessary.
Can I book in a facial on the same day?
After Botox and filler, you can not do another treatment on the same day. You can book in a spa facial on the same day prior to your Botox or filler appointment. After Botox, you may proceed with your regular routines and book in for anything the next day. After fillers, you will want to avoid anything that is rubbing and pressing on the treated area for 2 weeks to allow the desired result to settle in and not be disturbed.
What are the side effects?
The most common side effect with injections is simply a bruise at the site of injection. These are small and can be concealed with makeup. Other side effects are very rare, please read through the consent form and be sure to ask our doctors questions as you would with any mediation.
What am I going to look like when I stop doing Botox?
The same as you did the day you started. You will not look older or have any different appearance. Botox and fillers can take many more months to be fully gone and your fine lines and volume loss will slowly return in a natural time frame.
