What is Botox?

Botox is a drug synthesized from the toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.

Interestingly, a Vancouver physician pioneered the use of Botox for medical use almost 40 years ago.  It has proved useful in a wide array of medical and cosmetic applications. Botox injections use a very small needle size and are now one of the world’s most common cosmetic procedures. 

What does Botox do?

Botox injections are widely known for their ability to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles but are also used medically to treat conditions like chronic migraines and excessive sweating. The use of Botox for cosmetic purposes acts by temporarily keeping facial muscles in a relaxed state, meaning they cannot create wrinkles.

What are the benefits of Botox?

  • Enhances your natural beauty and relaxed appearance
  • The procedure is non-invasive and takes 10-15 minutes
  • Provides results quickly (usually within 10 days)
  • Relatively inexpensive compared to other cosmetic procedures
  • The results last for approximately 3-4 months

Is Botox safe?

Like any drug, there can be side effects and allergic reactions with its usage, however, dental professionals trained in Botox injections will be able to use their expertise to minimize these risks.
