Botox Cosmetic Injections

Botox Injectables Montreal

Frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead furrows are all unfortunately signs of aging. As we get older, our faces bear the brunt of our age and can leave us looking less than fresh. Many procedures can be conducted in order to fight the signs of aging. One of the most common procedures is Botox.

What is Botox?

Botox is a treatment composed of a neurotoxin that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Medically, this drug is referred to as botulinum toxin and has proven an effective way to combat wrinkles and other signs of aging that appear on our faces. Botox is a cosmetic procedure that is commonly done to women and men in order to make them appear younger.

What happens during the injection procedure?

A Botox injection is a simple procedure that only takes a few minutes. Botox is injected into specific muscles with a fine needle to temporarily paralyze them. Once paralyzed, it is easy to remove wrinkles that lie over those muscles. You do not need to be anesthetized to receive your Botox injection. There may be a minor discomfort in the area but it generally fades within seconds as the fine needle is removed.

Depending on the area being treated, the number of injections will vary.

    • To deal with crow’s feet, three injections are typically used in the muscles that border the side of your eyes.
    • To attack frown lines, five injections are generally administered into your forehead muscles.

Upon your first meeting with Dr. Fouda Neel to discuss your Botox injections, he will advise you to:

        • Avoid alcohol for one week leading up to your procedure so as to not have any toxic elements in your system while your body heals from your injection
        • Avoid taking anti-inflammatories and aspirin at least two weeks before your treatment to reduce the risk of bruising

Is Botox safe?

Yes! Do not let the terminology fool you. Just because your muscles are temporarily being paralyzed by a toxin does not mean that Botox injections are unsafe. Since 2001, after all-encompassing research and analysis, Health Canada has declared Botox as an effective and safe means of wrinkle therapy and treatment for other medical conditions like excess sweating.

If you are plagued with over-active sweat glands, your doctor may have suggested Botox as a treatment option. Please discuss this fact with Dr. Fouda Neel during your consultation.

What are the positive after-effects of Botox?

The after-effects of Botox are tremendous. You will not look like you’ve had any work done to your face, and will appear more youthful. Patients can return to their normal routine immediately following their injections. Within a few days, you will notice significant changes to your face including the lack of crow’s feet and frown lines. The after-effects of Botox can last up to 12 months after which you will need to repeat the procedure.

With Botox there are some factors to remember:

      • Avoid rubbing the area that was treated so as to keep the toxin in place. If it migrates to another area, you will have to have the treatment redone. Normally, patients do not report any migration.
      • The treatment may cause temporary bruising at the injection site but this can be easily covered with makeup and fades after a few days.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between BOTOX and dermal fillers?

Botulinum-based injectables such as BOTOX treat forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, frown lines between the eyebrows, and wrinkles on the upper lip. BOTOX temporarily immobilizes the tiny facial muscles that cause these “dynamic” wrinkles, which develop as you change facial expressions. Fillers, on the other hand, treat wrinkles and lines caused by age-related loss of volume and environmental effects, such as sun damage. Dr. Fouda Neel creates a treatment plan using both BOTOX and fillers to target specific areas of the face.

Are there other uses for BOTOX?

Yes, botulinum toxin’s versatility in treating a range of conditions continues to grow. Changing the underlying shape of certain facial features, such as slightly by weakening the muscles which pull them down, is one example. In addition, BOTOX injections can relax overactive platysma muscles, which cause neck bands to form.

Men and women troubled by excessive underarm sweating can also find relief from BOTOX® injections. Even some patients who suffer chronic migraine headaches experience a dramatic reduction in the number and severity of episodes after BOTOX® injections that target appropriate trigger points.

Who performs BOTOX® injections?

Dr. Fouda Neel personally performs BOTOX® treatments, customizing the procedures to address your specific concerns. During your consultation, Dr. Fouda Neel carefully assesses your needs and creates a treatment plan designed to maximize your results.

How long do botulinum-based procedures take?

The injections themselves generally take about 15 to 30 minutes. Before your treatment, we apply a topical anesthetic to help you remain comfortable. Most patients return to their normal, daily activities immediately after the treatment. You should, however, expect some redness and swelling at the injection sites. Typically, results from a botulinum-based injectable wrinkle treatment last about 4 months.

Can you combine botulinum-based injectables with other procedures?

Depending on your specific needs, sometimes a wrinkle treatment can be combined with dermal fillers for more comprehensive results. During your consultation, Dr. Fouda Neel will assess whether you are a candidate for combining procedures.

What are the risks associated with botulinum toxin?

Millions of people worldwide have received botulinum toxin injections with no problems. It is one of the safest cosmetic procedures available. The most common complication is the inadvertent paralysis of muscles adjacent to the muscles being targeted. This can lead to temporary changes which, fortunately, will resolve on their own.
