Botox COSMETIC® OTTAWA
Botox Cosmetic® can help reduce certain facial lines and wrinkles, allowing you to look and feel more refreshed, rested, and youthful. At Concept Medical your Botox Cosmetic® treatments are performed exclusively by our skilled physicians and never delegated to a nurse or other non-medical staff member.
Botox® is a purified protein that when placed into certain muscles, reduces the look of moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles. At Concept Medical, in Ottawa, all Botox treatments are uniquely customized and administered only by our licensed physicians. Botox Cosmetic® treatments are never delegated to a nurse or non-medical practitioner.
All cosmetic treatments at Concept Medical begin with a detailed consultation with one of our experienced physicians. This ensures optimal results and most importantly your safety. Our physicians will work with you to customize your Botox® treatment to obtain your desired results. A Botox® treatment can be completed within a few minutes, and many patients return to your normal activities or work immediately after. Botox does not require numbing cream as treatment is very tolerable.
The key to an optimal Botox® treatment is not only the product itself, but also ensuring you choose an experienced Botox® injector to achieve effective and natural results. Following your treatment, your lines and wrinkles will begin to soften and improve over the next week. As the Botox® takes effect you should look more rested, refreshed, and youthful. A Botox® treatment should never make you look frozen, surprised, or artificial. Botox® is not permanent, with results typically lasting 3-4 months depending on the treatment area. At Concept Medical, all cosmetic injectable treatments are uniquely customized and administered only by licenced physicians.
Botox® was approved by the FDA in 1989 for treatment of various eye conditions. Shortly after treatment, patients receiving Botox® noticed that their lines and wrinkles improved as well. Since 2001, Botox® has been approved for cosmetic applications in Canada. Botox® is one of the safest non-surgical treatments available. Although Botox® has an excellent safety profile, it is important you thoroughly discuss the risks and possible complications with your physician prior to treatment. Most complications of Botox® are not due to the product itself, but rather an injector who may not be familiar with Botox® techniques and facial anatomy.
Almost anyone can receive Botox® treatments. However, men and women with specific neurological conditions should not receive Botox®. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding are advised not to have Botox® treatments. Previous adverse reactions to Botox® as well as certain medications may preclude you from receiving Botox®. While these are some of the common contraindications to the use of Botox®, it is essential that anyone interested in treatment first be assessed and approved by a qualified physician.
If you decide to stop using Botox®, your wrinkles will simply return slowly to their previous appearance.
Although Botox® is often used once deep lines and wrinkle have appeared, many patients choose to use Botox® in their 20s and 30s as a preventative measure against the signs of aging.
Combining both Botox® and the soft tissue filler Juvéderm® is called a SoftLift®. Similar to Botox® treatments, a SoftLift® can be completed within minutes. Combining Botox® with a soft tissue filler such as Juvéderm® often provides superior results than using either product alone.
At Concept Medical in Ottawa we have extensive experience using Botox® to achieve effective and natural results. However, similar products such as Dysport® and Xeomin® are available by patient request.
