Calgary Botox Cosmetics

Calgary Botox Cosmetics

For 30 years, millions of people just like you have experienced the proven results of the one and only BOTOX COSMETIC. A survey found that women are most bothered by signs of aging around the eye – including crow’s feet (wrinkles around the outer eye). BOTOX COSMETIC is the one and only product that can soften frown lines (vertical lines between the eyebrows), crow’s feet, and the horizontal lines that run across the forehead.

Are You a Candidate?

During your initial consultation, we will review your medical history and discuss your aesthetic goals to determine if Botox injections are right for you.

In general, the best Botox candidates are Calgary men and women who:

  • Want to smooth moderate to severe wrinkles, such as forehead lines and crow’s feet.
  • Have realistic expectations for the procedure.
  • Are in good general health.
  • Are not pregnant or breastfeeding.

Things To Know Before Botox

We want you to achieve amazing results and love your smooth and revitalized skin. Here’s some important information about Botox to help you along the way.

Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding cannot get Botox treatments.

To minimize bruising, please avoid alcohol for at least 48 hours before your injections. To improve the longevity of your treatment, we recommend that you refrain from gym workouts for 48 hours and avoid excessive heat (saunas, hot yoga) for 1 week after your treatment.

After your injections, you may feel slight discomfort and be tempted to rub or massage the injection sites; this is to be avoided. Your skin needs to settle and heal without irritation. The typical time to recover after Botox is approximately 2 to 4 hours. Although it may be tempting to take a nap during that time, it’s best to avoid lying down or putting pressure on your face.

How exactly does Botox Cosmetic work?

Botox Cosmetic is a purified protein injected into the muscles that cause wrinkles. It relaxes the muscles, giving your face a more refreshed appearance.

Will my face still show emotions and expressions?

Botox Cosmetic is intended to enhance your look, not change it - you can still smile, frown and be expressive.

What is the treatment like?

A Botox Cosmetic treatment is quick and simple, with no downtime. After meeting with your Cosmetic Injector to determine your desired outcome, the procedure itself takes only 10-15 minutes. A tiny amount of Botox Cosmetic is injected with a fine needle into the muscle being treated, this process is virtually painless.

When will I see results and how long will they last?

You’ll begin to see results as soon as 24 hours after your treatment, and the lines may continue to fade up to one week afterwards. The effects can last up to four months.

How much does a treatment cost?

The price depends on the amount of Botox Cosmetic needed and the areas of the face being treated. Your Cosmetic Injector will determine the right amount of Botox Cosmetic that you need to achieve a refreshed look and provide you with a cost estimate.
