Botox injections are considered safe if administered by a licensed and skilled healthcare provider. Incorrect administration of the procedure can result in unwanted outcomes or even harm. Potential side effects and unwanted outcomes may include:
It is generally not recommended to receive Botox injections if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Repeated muscle movements from facial expressions create dynamic wrinkles. Smiling, squinting, and frowning etches lines into the skin that become more pronounced over time. These types of wrinkles are different than static wrinkles, which develop as our skin produces less collagen and elastin and the effects of sun exposure and other environmental factors take their toll. Different treatments address different types of wrinkles.
Your procedure can take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the area or areas being treated. Depending on the product used, you should see initial results within 3 to 7 days with BOTOX. The results typically last between 3 to 5 months, so we recommend periodic treatments to seamlessly maintain the results.
The active ingredient in Botox and the other neuromodulators targets specific muscles by blocking the nerve signals to them. This results in the muscle relaxing, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
These injections are typically not considered painful because they are quick and performed with a fine needle. We prep the treatment area with a numbing cream to minimize the potential for any discomfort.
While there is no downtime needed after a BOTOX treatment, we recommend taking the following precautions:
Botox, which was originally approved by the FDA to treat droopy eyelids (“lazy eye”), is now approved to treat multiple conditions. These uses can help greatly improve the quality of a patient’s life. The conditions Botox is used to treat include:
The most common dynamic wrinkles targeted by Botox injections include:
Our Calgary Botox providers use precisely targeted injections that don’t create an unnatural appearance.
Our skilled injectors at Xthetics Face and Body Sculpt have the expertise needed to safely and effectively administer injectable treatments that help you achieve the look you want—whether subtle or dramatic. We first thoroughly cleanse your skin and then apply numbing cream for increased comfort, if desired. They then make several tiny injections into the targeted muscle or muscles. Our injectors use very precise, controlled techniques to ensure that your results look natural.
Botulinum toxin type A is considered a safe, minimally invasive way to smooth dynamic wrinkles. Botox was approved by the FDA and has a remarkable track record for safety when an experienced, trained provider makes the injections. The primary side effects of these treatments include redness, bruising, or soreness at the injection site.
Most women and men get their first Botox treatment when they are bothered by lines and creases caused by facial muscle contractions. Depending on genetics, sun exposure, and personal preference, patients may be in their 40s, 50s, and up. Many people in their mid-20s and 30s have these treatments as a proactive measure to keep lines and wrinkles from forming in the first place.
Eligible residents of Alberta can benefit from complete coverage for physician services that are medically necessary, as well as some dental and oral surgical health services, through the Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan (AHCIP). However, any surgical procedures that are not deemed medically essential, such as cosmetic treatments (including Botox), are not included in the AHCIP coverage. The only application of Botox that is currently covered by AHCIP is Botox for headaches.
