Botox Cosmetic, the first Health Canada approved neuromodulator is the gold standard treatment for mild to moderate lines and wrinkles on the face and neck, also used therapeutically for chronic migraines and excessive sweating. Botox is a purified protein that works by blocking signals from nerves to specific muscles in the face. Treatment with Botox requires no down time and full results are seen 2 weeks post treatment. Retreatment with Botox is required every 3-4 months for optimal results.

What Our Botox Clients Are Saying

Jenny Thompson

I have been going to Medaesthetics for five years now. I started with laser hair removal and facials, and now being 40+ have transitioned into BBL treatments, Botox, etc. The staff there make me feel like a million bucks upon arrival. This is by far and away the most kind and efficient team working together. They don’t make me feel embarrassed, silly, ugly, or small. I am treated with the utmost attention from the minute I walk in the door.

Sue Hawco

I had a Botox treatment with Michelle. I was thrilled with the professionalism and warmth of all the women I met. It didn’t hurt at all and I’m excited to see what changes will come! See you soon.

Allison Brook

The staff at MedAesthetics are so amazing. I got Botox and filler for the first time this past year and was so nervous but the staff were so knowledgeable and reassuring it was such an easy process. The renovations of the business have it looking so classy and professional, I could spend all day there!

Tana Einarson

Everyone was so friendly and helpful and took the time to explain everything to me and allowed me to ask questions as a first time client. I knew that day that I wanted to be a part of MedAesthetics! I love their idea of the Gem monthly plan. I also had an excellent experience with the Hydrafacial and Botox.

Chloe Yazdani

I love coming to MedAesthetics! Their staff are all so friendly and professional. I am so happy with my Botox and filler results! Michelle is amazing with communicating what she believes will be best for my face so that I can look and feel my best. I am so obsessed with my lip filler results, I would suggest her to anyone that is looking to augment their look.

Applications for BOTOX Cosmetic

Although originally approved by for the treatment of eye and muscle spasms, BOTOX Cosmetic was quickly recognized for its cosmetic value. Properly placed injections of BOTOX Cosmetic block nerve impulses sent to muscles, weakening them to the point where they cannot contract, and temporarily eliminating moderately severe furrows and lines. BOTOX Cosmetic is used to treat the following:

  • Forehead furrows
  • Frown lines
  • Crow‘s feet
  • Skin bands on the neck

According to Allergan, BOTOX Cosmetic has been “extensively researched, with approximately 2500 studies.”

BOTOX Cosmetic Procedure and Results

Using a very fine needle, BOTOX Cosmetic is injected directly into facial muscles that are causing furrows and lines. Receiving the injections requires no anesthetic, but some doctors choose to numb the area to be injected with ice packs or a topical anesthetic cream. Results can usually be seen within a few days of treatment, and typically last up to four months, although areas that are treated on a regular basis may retain results longer. Injections should be given only by qualified medical professionals.

Side Effects of BOTOX Cosmetic

Injection-site side effects of BOTOX Cosmetic are usually mild and temporary, and include the following:

  • Pain
  • Infection
  • Inflammation
  • Tenderness
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Bleeding
  • Bruising

Normal activities may be resumed immediately after receiving injections.
