Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Botulinum Toxin, commonly referred to as BOTOX® and/or Dysport™, blocks nerve signals from the brain to the affected muscles. This makes it especially effective on wrinkles that are caused by muscle movement. Botulinum Toxin has been successfully used for many years to treat some of the most common age-related changes. Rather than physically adding volume to wrinkles the way injectable fillers do, Botulinum Toxin prevents you from making the expressions that cause these wrinkles in the first place. When injected correctly, Botulinum Toxin smooths your complexion without interfering with your ability to make natural facial expressions.
A square and wide jawline is often due to oversized jaw muscles (masseter muscles). Although these muscles help us to chew and speak, they can become enlarged due to genetics and overuse. When Botulinum Toxin is injected into the jaw muscles it helps soften the muscle. As a result, the face becomes slimmer and more triangular, giving the face a more feminine V-shaped appearance.
Botulinum Toxin temporarily blocks the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, severe sweating is reduced.
By injecting small doses of Botulinum Toxin directly into the masseter muscle (the large muscle that moves the jaw), the muscle is weakened enough to stop involuntary grinding of the teeth and clenching of the jaw. This significantly relaxes the muscle and reduces the wear and tear on the teeth due to grinding.
We will complete a thorough review of your health history, complete a physical examination, and review your goals. You will be asked to demonstrate facial expressions so we can pinpoint areas of concern. Then, using a very fine needle, we make a series of quick injections, which typically feel like a small pinch. You can anticipate being out of our clinic in about 30 minutes.
You will see results typically within a week post injection.
Our appointment is likely to be rather brief, and you can plan to return to your normal activities immediately after receiving treatment. However, we book sufficient time to ensure that all of your questions are answered and cosmetic treatments are not rushed.
Result can vary from person to person; however, results often last on average 3 months to 4 months. With consistent use and regular treatments, results can last up to 6 months, allowing for a longer duration between treatments to attain and maintain results.
Botulinum Toxin is not recommended for use in pregnant or lactating women, as well as anyone who has had an allergic reaction to the drug or any of its active ingredients. Please inform us of any neurological or immunological disease, as this will assist us with determining if Botulinum Toxin treatment is right for you.
Botulinum Toxin complications often arise from inappropriate injection and medication dosing. Therefore, it is paramount to have a medical practitioner that has extensive knowledge in facial anatomy, pharmacology, and hands-on experience to minimize the risk and ensure safety.
Incorrect injections in the forehead or around the eyes can result in droopy eyelid muscles, also known as ptosis; too much medication injected into the neck can cause muscle weakness and swallowing difficulties.
Other adverse reactions may include the following:
- Pain or bruising at the injection site
- Headache, face pain, eye swelling
- Skin rash/allergic reaction
- Local muscle weakness
