BOTOX® Injections 

Non-surgical Cosmetic Botox Injection Treatments

BOTOX® Injections for fine lines and wrinkles at Papillon Bleu Aesthetics in Coquitlam, British Columbia.

Wrinkles are a natural part of aging to all, but there are options such as BOTOX® Injections to minimize the effects of aging that can instantly make you look youthful. In the medical aesthetics realm the solution to aging, are neuromodulators, near toxins injections, mostly know as Botox injections.

What is BOTOX®?

BOTOX® Injections are the number one anti-aging cosmetic treatment in the world, with the ability to smooth wrinkles and suspend future aging while in effect. Dynamic wrinkles from the facial expressions cause the muscles under the skin to contract, and over time, as your skin ages, these repeated expressions cause lasting static wrinkles. The active ingredient of the injectable treatment works on the nerve endings to reduce muscle activity, resulting in a softening of the lines and a relaxed, refreshed appearance.

How does the procedure work?

BOTOX® is a purified natural neuromodulator protein used as a non-surgical procedure, our expert doctors will inject a clinically approved dose of the protein into the patient’s face, and as the protein relaxes the muscles in the surrounding area, it will result in softening and reducing wrinkles in the area of injection. An overall result of a more rested, youthful, and refreshed appearance!

How long does the injectable last?

The non-surgical injectable treatment on average lasts three to six months; however, it may vary between individuals as the muscle relaxation is usually observed within 2-10 days, and the peak effect is reached in about 2-4 weeks. Effects of the first injection tend not to last as long as future injections.  Regular treatments help the results last longer, and importantly the freshness, quality, and dosage also have a big impact on how long the treatment injectable lasts, so it’s important to get it from a skilled and trusted physician.

The injection location also affects how long the BOTOX® treatment lasts, as the larger the muscles in the BOTOX® injection site, the shorter it lasts. For example, using BOTOX® Injectables for the forehead wrinkles does not last as long as a treatment for crow’s feet. The forehead injection would normally last about 3 months, whereas the crow’s feet treatment will normally last four months or longer.

What are the side effects of the treatment?

What are the side effects of the treatment?

Rare side effects of BOTOX®:

Most of these rare and more serious side effects happen when BOTOX® is injected by an unqualified provider or when the client has an existing medical condition.
Drooping of the eyelids or eyebrows;
Temporary muscle weakness near where the medicine was injected;
Trouble swallowing;
Blurred vision, puffy eyelids, dry eyes;
Dry mouth

How long should you wait in between Botox injections?

How long should you wait in between Botox injections?

For aesthetic BOTOX® injections, it’s best to wait at least 3 months between BOTOX® treatments. For people who get these injections regularly, the physician may recommend longer waiting periods. Although these facial muscle relaxers are safe, your body can build up a tolerance to them if taken too frequently.

The waiting period ensures that your facial muscle relaxer treatments will continue to be effective. For first-time BOTOX® treatments, we have a different approach. Generally, we suggest new patients start with a low dose and then get a “top-up” after 2 weeks. This helps ensure a natural look for first-timers.

How much does the treatment cost?

How much does the treatment cost?

While it may be available on some medical plans for certain conditions such as Migraine or excessive sweating, treatment with BOTOX® is not covered if they are purely for cosmetic reasons. BOTOX® injection is usually calculated based on the amount of the units used.

At Papillon Bleu Aesthetics, each unit will cost $9 (CAD). How many units each individual needs for treatment varies significantly. It depends on age, gender, severity, and depth of the wrinkles, muscle forces, and the condition of the skin. Women may need 20 to 50 units and men typically need significantly more due to stronger muscles, about 40-60 units. Therefore, we recommend you to have a consultation before receiving any treatments.
