Botox North York
Botox in North York from Elysium Beauty Clinic
As we age our skin loses its elasticity and facial wrinkles and lines inevitably begin to form. The wrinkles that are the first to appear are expression wrinkles, which are caused by increased facial activity such as smiling or squinting. These initial wrinkles become noticeable in a person’s 20s and then deepen in their 30s and 40s, becoming more and more pronounced with time. Overall, the formation of wrinkles depends on each individual person’s genetics, skin type, and gender, as well as their lifestyle and level of skincare. Botox injections are a popular method of reducing the appearance of deep dynamic wrinkles that are most visible during facial movements. Botox can be used to reduce wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyebrows and help with the so-called “crow’s feet” near the eyes.

North York Botox Clinic
The Botox procedure at our North York clinic is risk-free and very effective at reducing the appearance of wrinkles that are visible during facial expressions, such as talking, smiling, or squinting. Botox works by relaxing the targeted facial muscles, thus keeping wrinkles from forming, this delivers impressive results with minimal risk. Following the injection you can return to your daily routine immediately with only a small amount of restrictions. The results of the injection will become noticeable after five to seven days following the procedure and take full effect within two weeks.
Minimize Signs of Aging
Botox works by blocking nerve transmission to the targeted muscles causing them to relax, which smooths the skin. Because of this Botox has a great effect on wrinkles, stopping them from forming during facial movements. Our North York Botox clinic is staffed by qualified and experienced injection specialists who will consult with you to get the most out of your Botox procedure. At our North York beauty clinic we always strive to do our best to make your procedure as comfortable as possible, and an anesthetic cream is used during the procedure to minimize any pain or discomfort you may experience.
Effective and Safe Procedure
Botox injections are unique in that they offer great results without the risks or the inconvenience associated with plastic surgery that would be needed to get similar results. No other procedure currently available compares to the safety and effectiveness of Botox. At our North York clinic we can use Botox to target wrinkles in various facial regions, like the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. The effects of a Botox injection become noticeable within a week after the injection and become fully pronounced soon after. Talk to our experienced and friendly injection specialists at our North York Botox clinic to determine if a Botox injection is right for you.
Risk-Free and Effective Way to Get Rid of Wrinkles
We always strive to make your time at our beauty clinic as pleasant and free of discomfort as possible. Prior to your injection of Botox at our North York clinic, the targeted area of the skin will be cleansed and marked for the procedure. A topical anesthetic cream will also be applied to the affected area to reduce any potential discomfort or pain that may be experienced during the procedure. Finally, a small syringe needle is used to deliver the Botox to the target location without leaving any visible marks or scars. Some pain or discomfort may be felt during the procedure despite the anesthetic, especially in more sensitive areas, like the lips and around the eyes.
In order to more effectively target facial wrinkles you might be asked to form certain facial expressions, such as a smile, a frown, or raised eyebrows. After the injection, the affected area of the skin will once again be cleansed with an antiseptic. A cold compress will be applied to the area of the injection to prevent any bruising or swelling.
Once the procedure is finished you will be free to return to your day with only a few limitations. To make sure the Botox is evenly applied, in the few hours directly following the procedure you will need to keep your head upright and avoid straining the muscles in the face. In the days following the injection, you should limit your exposure to UV light and keep from applying makeup or skin care products to the affected area. Clients should also avoid swimming pools, saunas, and visits to the gym following the procedure, as well as drinking alcohol or other diuretic substances.
Although Botox is safe and effective for most people, there are a number of factors that can increase the risk of side effects. We would encourage anyone exhibiting any of the below contraindications to consult with a physician to determine how a Botox injection could affect them.
- Sensitivity to Botox or its components
- Inflammation in the targeted area of the skin
- Skin lesions in the area of the skin to be treated
- Ongoing pregnancy or lactation period
