BOTOX Cosmetic™ is a neuromodulator (purified protein). We use this drug as part of a wrinkle treatment with injections to reduce the appearance of expression lines, mainly on the upper part of the face. Expression lines are the lines that appear when the muscles of the face contract.
—How does Botox wrinkle treatment work?
We inject BOTOX Cosmetic® in very small amounts into the muscles at specific points to relax them. The relaxation of the muscles will have the effect of reducing wrinkles and give you a more relaxed appearance.
—On which areas of the face can we use Botox?
Neuromodulator injections are given to the glabella (between the eyebrows), the creases of the forehead, the eyebrows (to elevate the lateral extremity), and the crow’s feet (around the eyes). We can also target other areas of the face, such as the chin, around the mouth, and the neck.
—Are Botox injections safe?
BOTOX Cosmetic® is a very safe drug approved by Health Canada. This neuromodulator is a purified protein that has been synthesized. It is a product that has been used for over 20 years, and it has proven itself in wrinkle treatments.
—How long is a Botox wrinkle treatment session?
This is a quick and easy wrinkle treatment that takes an average of 10 minutes, and this procedure does not require anesthesia. You can have this procedure done during your lunch break!
—Will my Botox injection wrinkle treatment be painful?
The fear of feeling pain during injections is very common in patients. We proceed very safely in specific areas, and the treatment generates only mild discomfort. When the session is over, most patients are surprised at how painless the treatment was.
—What are the possible side effects of a Botox injection?
When the injections are given by a very experienced person, the risk of serious side effects is extremely rare. In addition, the doses of BOTOX Cosmetic™ that we use in our wrinkle treatments are low and do not cause any pronounced side effects. The most common side effects observed are a mild temporary headache, as well as redness, irritation, and swelling at the injection site.
—How long does it take before I see the final result of my treatment?
Upon injection of BOTOX Cosmetic™, the proteins will reach the nerve endings in less than 30 minutes. After a few days, the muscles will start to relax, which will reduce the wrinkles, and you will be able to see the maximum results after two weeks.
—Will I have a frozen appearance after my Botox treatment?
Our staff members who perform BOTOX Cosmetic™ injections are highly qualified, and the wrinkle treatments are carried out to produce results that will be as natural as possible. It should be noted that each additional session allows for a more effective result. However, we recommend that you avoid touching or massaging the treatment area for a period of four hours following the injection. This will prevent the neuromodulators from migrating between the different injection sites as well as unwanted side effects.

—For how long do the results of a Botox wrinkle treatment remain visible?
First, you have to understand that the results of this type of treatment are not permanent. You will need to repeat the treatment every 4 to 6 months in order to maintain the results. Once you stop receiving BOTOX Cosmetic™ treatments, the muscles will slowly regain their ability to contract, and the wrinkles will return.
—What is the ideal age to have a Botox treatment?
There is not really an ideal age to have a BOTOX Cosmetic™ treatment. As soon as you notice the expression lines becoming constant and visible when your face is relaxed, you can consider having a neuromodulator injection to treat the wrinkles.
—At 25, am I too young to start Botox treatments?
Even if you are only 25 years old, you can have BOTOX Cosmetic™ injections as a preventative treatment. We recommend that you start BOTOX Cosmetic™ treatments sooner rather than later in life. This will help delay the progression of expression lines.
—Can men enjoy the benefits of a Botox injection?
Whether you are a man or a woman, wrinkle treatments with BOTOX Cosmetic™ injections will be just as effective for you. The dosage should also be adjusted upward in men for a similar effect.
—When can I return to work following my wrinkle treatment?
You can return to work right after your wrinkle treatment without any problems and resume most of your activities. Please allow 4 hours after your session before touching the treated area and resuming exercise.
—Will anyone around me notice that I had Botox injections?
At Clinimedspa, we strive to provide a result that is as natural as possible. The first goal of wrinkle treatments by injection is to help you regain a radiant and natural look. Your loved ones will therefore find that you look more radiant and rested. This is why we recommend that you repeat the treatments to achieve more gradual and natural results.
—What are the points to consider before starting wrinkle treatments?
If you are planning to proceed with BOTOX Cosmetic™ injection wrinkle treatments, you should understand that this is a long-term commitment. You should also note that your body will eliminate neuromodulators over the months. The results will therefore remain present only for a maximum period of 6 months to one year, depending on the area treated. You will then need to repeat your treatments in order to maintain and improve the results and to delay the appearance of new wrinkles.
—Can I exercise after my Botox wrinkle treatment?
Of course! You can resume moderate exercise 4 hours after your BOTOX Cosmetic™ injection session. This delay is necessary to prevent the neuromodulators from migrating.
—Are there any people who cannot have Botox injections?
Yes. In some cases, your doctor may advise against having wrinkle treatments with injections. This is why you must tell us if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have a neuromuscular pathology, or are taking blood thinners, anti-inflammatory drugs, or antibiotics. If you have any of these conditions, we do not recommend using BOTOX Cosmetic™ treatment.
—After 60, am I too old to start a wrinkle treatment?
It’s never too late to have wrinkle treatments by injections and to improve your appearance!
As mentioned above, BOTOX Cosmetic™ injections are also used as a preventative measure and may help delay the onset of other wrinkles. You can also combine your anti-aging treatment with injections of a filler called hyaluronic acid. This molecule is found naturally in your body and is metabolized just like neuromodulators. It is used to correct asymmetry or to restore volume to certain areas of the face. Finally, in separate sessions, you can have photorejuvenation treatments done.
As they say: try it and you’ll love it! And all you have to lose are your wrinkles!
