Botox Injections Are Your Non-Invasive Cosmetic Solution

Skin Vitality Medical Clinic is now pleased to offer their patients in the greater Toronto area Botox injections. Skin Vitality is the top provider of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures in the community. The injections first began as treatment for medical conditions, until dermatologists discovered that Botox injections could be used for cosmetic purposes as well. The procedure is now used to ease fine lines, nasolabial folds and brow wrinkles and can last for at least six months.

The best candidate for the treatment is a man or woman who’s about 35 years old to about 65 years old and whose skin hasn’t been badly damaged by the sun’s ultraviolet rays.  Botox is a purified form of the botulinum A or B toxin. This toxin is used to interrupt nerve signals by disrupting the action of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter. When the nerve signals are interrupted, the muscles around the wrinkles are paralyzed and the wrinkles smooth out.

After a patient has a consultation with a dermatologist at Skin Vitality and has been approved as a good candidate, the procedure will be done in the dermatologist's office. As an outpatient procedure, there's no down time and the patient can go home immediately after the injections are administered and the patient has rested for a while.

The patient's face will be cleaned and an anesthetic cream may be applied. This will be left on to work for about a half an hour or so, then the doctor will inject the Botox with fine needles into the muscles around the wrinkles or trenches. The entire treatment shouldn’t last more than an half an hour. The patient might need to have multiple treatments depending on the extent of the wrinkles. The procedure can help both men and women.

After the injections, the patient will rest for a few minutes with an ice pack applied to the injection sites. He or she might want to take a few days off from work because there might be some swelling and bruising around the injection sites, but these will fade. The patient should see an improvement a week or two after the injections. Even after the treatment wears off, the wrinkles that return may not be as deep as they were before the treatment. Still, a patient might opt for another round of injections. The treatment is often used with other rejuvenating procedures like dermal fillers.

The medical staff at Skin Vitality Medical Clinic are experienced in delivering Botox injections and are licensed to do so.

They are more than happy to explain the different options you have and answer your questions.
