How BOTOX Works

Repeated muscular contractions, such as frowning and squinting, form lines known as dynamic wrinkles. Neuromodulators work by relaxing the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, giving the face a more relaxed and refreshed appearance. When BOTOX COSMETIC is injected into the muscle, it blocks the nerve impulse from reaching that area. As a result, the muscle relaxes, and the dynamic wrinkle overlying the muscle is smoothed away. This treatment is used by women and men who want to take control of their appearance and look as good as they feel.

What is Dysport®?

Treatment with Dysport® achieves the same results as treatment with BOTOX. It can help improve the look of frown lines and forehead wrinkles for up to 4 months. Dysport may be a better choice for larger areas, and results may appear slightly sooner that BOTOX, but both injectables are made from the same active ingredient.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will my face still have expression?

BOTOX COSMETIC and Dysport are intended to enhance the way you look, not change it. The treatment only relaxes the muscle beneath the lines at the point of injection, so the other elements of your facial expression remain active. It also has no effect on the sensory nerves, so you will retain normal feeling in the treated areas.

Are BOTOX and Dysport treatments safe?

BOTOX COSMETIC and Dysport treatments are very safe when performed by experienced professionals. Risks include bruising at the injection site and the possibility of unintentionally affecting nearby muscle groups. Specific risks should be discussed with your injector when considering treatment. Bear in mind that since its approval for cosmetic use in Canada well over a decade ago, many millions of doses of BOTOX have been administered to patients, with safe and beautiful results.

How do I choose between BOTOX and Dysport?

BOTOX and Dysport use the same active ingredient, work in the same way, and last about the same amount of time. However, there are some minor differences between the 2. For example, Dysport's consistency is thinner. This makes it well suited to treat larger, more diffuse areas of the face. During your consultation, we will discuss your options and determine which treatment is right for you.

What is the treatment like?

A tiny amount of BOTOX COSMETIC or Dysport is injected very precisely into the muscle being treated. A very fine needle and a small amount of liquid are used to minimize discomfort. The sensation of the injection has been compared to a bug bite. No sedation or local anesthetic is required, and you can resume normal activities immediately.

How long does a treatment take?

The procedure is quick and simple, and there is no downtime. Following a brief consultation, analysis, and a discussion on your desired outcome, the procedure itself usually takes 15 to 20 minutes to perform.

How soon will I see a difference?

You can expect to see noticeable results within days after your treatment. The appearance of wrinkles and lines may continue to diminish for up to 1 week following treatment.

How long does the treatment last?

A typical treatment should last 3 to 5 months before the next full treatment is required. After repeat treatments, the effects may begin to last longer.
