Similar to other parts of our body (as time passes), our skin shows signs of aging. Overexposure to the sun and occupational/recreational activities may harm our skin over time and lead to the development of wrinkles, dryness, sagging, and skin spots. Smoking and genetics are also important factors in how your skin ages.
The early appearance of wrinkles, or their worsening with time, happens for most people going through the aging process. Certain areas on your skin may make you look older or simply more tired. Although it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise to achieve a healthy body and reduce the impact of aging, taking care of our physical appearance is important as well.
Looking for Botox in Mississauga, Brampton or the Greater Toronto Area to address your skin concerns? You’ve come to the right place. Whether its facial wrinkles or restoring your youthfulness, Botox will help enhance your physical appearance, and in turn, boost your confidence as you step out into the world.
What is Botox?
Botox and other neuromodulators are injectable products that have been ‘Health Canada approved’ for cosmetic use since 2002. Its most common use is for reducing appearance of wrinkles and unwanted lines on your skin. The active ingredient in Botox is a purified protein trusted by the medical community to temporarily block nerve signals, preventing excessive muscle movements which cause wrinkles to show. Botox is most commonly used to treat the forehead, vertical lines (angry 11’s) and the lines around the eyes, or crow’s feet.
What should I expect after my Botox treatment?
After your Botox treatment, you can expect to see visible smoothing of wrinkles and frown lines starting to soften within 4-5 days, with full results appearing in 2 weeks. The effects of Botox can last up to four months, and vary from person to person. It’s important to note that Botox is not a permanent solution. If you discontinue treatment, your frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines will gradually return.
Where else can Neuromodulators (Botox, Dysport, Nuceiva, Xeomin) be used?
Neuromodulators including Botox, Dysport, Nuceiva and Xeomin can be used in a variety of other areas including nose lines, bunny lines, chin dimples, a downturned smile, jawline, neck bands, horizontal lines on the neck, lip lines, lip flips, sweaty palms, feet, underarms, and the nose area (for nostril-flaring and tip droop) to name a few!
What causes facial lines and wrinkles?
Facial lines are caused by a combination of factors, including a reduction of collagen, damage caused by free radicals from the sun and environment, and genetic factors. Repeated muscle contractions from squinting, raising your eyebrows, and frowning also cause the skin to furrow and fold, resulting in the formation of facial lines. Botox works beneath the surface of the skin by temporarily reducing the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet, resulting in visibly smoother-looking areas.
