What is Botox Injection
Botox is a medicine that can be injected into muscles underneath the skin to improve the appearance of forehead lines, crows’ feet lines and frown lines. Botox injection works by simply blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles, reducing the activities of dermis to create a smooth and refreshed appearance.
Botox Injection Toronto
Botox injection has become so popular in North America due to its effectiveness and proven safety track record that there are more than 5 million Botox injections performed each year.
As we age, raising the eyebrows or worry may develop lines on our forehead and frown lines between our eyebrows, while squinting or smiling may form the crows’ feet lines around our eyes.

Botox Injection F.A.Q.
How long does the Botox procedure take?
Generally, after the consultation, the entire procedure only takes up to 10 minutes. Since there is no downtime with Botox cosmetics treatment – you can have it on your lunchtime – and no one would notice you have had it done!
How quickly does Botox injection work?
Most patients may see improvement within a couple of days after Botox injection. However, it can take UP TO 2 weeks to see marked results.
How is Botox injection done?
It is injected with a very tiny needle – much smaller than those used to take your blood etc.
Does Botox injection hurt?
Prior to the injection treatment, the injector may apply an anesthetic cream to the area. Most patients only experienced a little pinch, which is minimal and brief.
How long does Botox last?
Botox injection is not permanent. The visible results usually last about 3-4 months, but everyone can be different. Most patients who get their first 3 treatments done “back to back” every 3 months, find that:
- their next injection lasts approx. 4 months
- then the next injection lasts approx. 5 months
- and the following injection lasts approx. 6 months
- patients who stay on our prompt treatment schedule can stabilize their treatments at approximately 2 times per year (saves you money!!)
Is it going to be worse when it wears off?
No! Your face will never get worse if you stop using Botox injection or when it wears off. Botox injection stops/slows” the clock of aging. When you stop getting injections, the “aging clock” resumes like normal. At the very minimum, you will simply return to where you started. If you use Botox injection for a number of years and then stop – your muscles learn to relax and therefore you will end up looking a little better than when you originally started.
How much does Botox Injection cost?
The cost of Botox injection varies by each patient and the number of units needed. The exact # of units you require (to achieve the look you want) will be discussed during your personal consultation.
What is a unit?
A unit of Botox Cosmetic is simply a very tiny measurement of drug.
Are there any side effects of Botox injection?
Side effects are RARE and NOT PERMANENT. Rarely, there can be some minor bruising, localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling and redness. Most Botox patients do not experience any side effects at all.
Where does Botox go in my body?
Botox stays local to the muscle where it was injected. After the injection, Botox is simply metabolized and broken down into natural byproducts within a few hours.
I am pregnant / am currently breast feeding. Can I get Botox cosmetics?
No. It is recommended that you wait until you are finished breast feeding to have your Botox injection done. Although there is no clinical evidence to prove any harm to the mother or baby – we prefer to be safe.
