Botox Cosmetic

Over time, unfortunately our skin does not co-operate with how we want it to act, and as the years go by our age catches up with us. Even if you don’t smoke and take good care of your skin, natural acts such as laughing, frowning, and environmental agents can cause wrinkles and fine lines. There are various options out there to help mitigate your wrinkles: creams, lotion and skin treatments, but if those don’t prove effective; Botox Cosmetic might be the right step for you.

Botox can completely redefine and revamp your look, using proven scientific methods that have been practiced for decades. It’s a safe and effective procedure, used to soften the lines to your skin that have naturally occurred over time. Sometimes too much Botox can have a negative effect, which may ward off some people from attempting the approach. However, our Doctors, Dr. Gerstein are well known for their conservative and gentle approach with the Botox injectable. Their experience and skill enables them to refresh and change your look to allow you to look the way you want to look and feel.

What is Botox?

Botox Toronto Cosmetic is essentially a treatment for harsh lines caused by recurrent movements and natural actions made by your face. The most commonly treated areas are found around the eyes: crows feet, lines on your forehead, and lines between the eyebrows. Botox works by injecting tiny amounts of the product under the skin to relax the muscles to create a smoother and reinvigorated appearance. There a lot of common misconceptions regarding Botox, some of them misconstrued because of the massive changes that celebrities go through, and how they are portrayed in the media. Botox isn’t just used for vanity reasons; it is a multi-purpose product as it is also used to treat excessive sweating, migraines and some forms of prolonged pain. Toronto Botox Cosmetic involves using a natural process – as is a purified protein, which is extracted from naturally occurring bacteria and then thoroughly processed under strict pharmaceutical manufacturing guidelines.

The Procedure

As stated above, our Doctors use a very conservative approach to avoid a massive and sometimes negative transformation. For cosmetic treatments, you may receive fewer than 100 units of Botox Cosmetic. The treatments themselves typically don’t take very long at all. Generally, after your consultation at TrueMedi (which is recommended), the procedure takes only approximately 15 minutes, and there is no recovery time afterwards. The protein is injected with a very tiny needle that delivers an equally tiny pinching sensation that is very tolerable. It can take up to 2 weeks for the product to have the full effect, which is a positive because the physical change would be extremely jarring if it happened overnight and wasn’t gradual. It’s important to note that the Botox results are not permanent — the initial treatment usually lasts 3-4 months. Some patients find it beneficial to get treatments every few months or so to keep their appearance consistent. Come for an initial consultation at TrueMedi Spa to find out if this process is the right one for you.
