Repeated muscle contractions such as frowning and squinting form lines known as dynamic wrinkles. Botox Cosmetic™ works by relaxing these muscles. It gives your face a relaxed appearance. The procedure is simple and quick, taking only minutes to perform, so that you can have it done on your lunch hour.
Effects of Botox last 3-4 months. Side effects are uncommon with our attention and focus on technique. A consultation is done prior to treatment at which time we will develop a personalized treatment plan for you. Dr. Tan, who has experience with Botox since 1997, only uses injection methods that have been proven safe and effective for facial relaxation.
Botox has been licensed in Canada since 1990 as a treatment for a number of disorders in adults and in children as young as 2 years old.
Botox Cosmetic™ is injected with a very fine syringe. Most patients compare the sensation to an insect bite. You can resume normal activities immediately. We rarely see bruising at the injection site due to our attention to technique.
We also have a nurse injector who is highly trained by the company and has numerous years of experience working in cosmetic clinics and following Dr. Tan at the Healthy Image Centre.
We do not recommend this treatment to women who are pregnant or nursing and patients with neuromuscular or immune diseases.
