Enhance your Skin with BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® relaxes the muscles behind facial tension and wrinkles, making it an effective solution to frown lines, lines around the mouth, forehead lines, or for achieving brow lift, giving you a more youthful appearance.

The BOTOX Calgary procedure is fast, taking only around 10 to 20 minutes. It requires no downtime, and causes very little discomfort. Depending on the individual’s lifestyle, results can last between 3 to 6 months. The duration can be shortened by activities and habits like smoking, but it can be prolonged through the use of neuropeptide creams.

BOTOX Cosmetic® is an effective skin care treatment to dynamic wrinkle lines, allowing you to eliminate common problems like crow’s feet, worry lines, and laugh lines. By injecting BOTOX® into these areas, the tiny facial muscles are relaxed, leading these lines to diminish in appearance.

BOTOX Cosmetic® is all about having the freedom to express oneself, as millions of women around the world have found out. To answer your questions about BOTOX Cosmetic®, how it works, the kind of results you should expect from it, and how safe it is, this page will provide the information you need.

How does the procedure work?

BOTOX Cosmetic® is the only product created to specifically target the facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. These dynamic wrinkles are often caused by repeated muscular contractions during actions like squinting and frowning. BOTOX Cosmetic® gives your face a more relaxed and refreshed appearance by injecting a purified protein that relaxes the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. Regularly using this treatment will soften expression lines and stop the further deepening of lines. The procedure is fast, you can have it during lunch time.

Getting a BOTOX Calgary is practically painless, and is performed without anaesthesia. You will feel a very small sting when the injection is made. The procedure must be repeated two to three time per year as the results are not permanent. However, research reveals that long-term use of the injection can prolong the effects of each succeeding treatment. The skin treatment, however, cannot be used to for sagging skin caused by aging as it applies only to expression lines.
