#1 Best BOTOX COSMETIC® and Dysport® Experts in Toronto.


Glabellar lines, commonly known as frown lines, and lateral canthal lines, referred to as crow’s feet, can detract from your appearance regardless of age. These dynamic wrinkles, caused by repetitive facial expressions like frowning and squinting, are not just signs of aging but also influenced by various factors including UV exposure, smoking, and genetic predisposition. Fortunately, advanced injectable treatments like BOTOX COSMETIC® and Dysport® offer effective solutions to combat these visible signs of aging and facial expression. There are several factors, in addition to facial expression, that can cause or worsen the appearance of frown lines including.

  • Sun Exposure – UV light in the sun can damage collagen
  • Aging – can create a loosening of collagen fibers and increased skin elasticity
  • Smoking – can reduce the amount of new collagen produced
  • Repeated facial expressions

 

Effective treatments for this area can help by temporarily reducing the muscle activity in certain upper facial muscles, which can help smooth the wrinkles and create a younger appearance. Neurotoxins are purified proteins produced from the Clostridium Botulinum bacteria. The most common toxin is called Botox, a sterile, purified form of botulinum toxin type A, used to treat upper facial lines, including forehead, crow’s feet, and frown lines.

BOTOX COSMETIC® is a renowned injectable treatment targeting dynamic wrinkles by relaxing the underlying facial muscles responsible for their formation. Derived from a purified protein, BOTOX COSMETIC® (onabotulinumtoxinA) effectively softens frown lines, forehead creases, and crow’s feet, providing a refreshed and relaxed appearance. This quick and simple procedure requires no downtime, allowing you to resume your routine activities immediately. With results noticeable within 24 hours and lasting up to four months, BOTOX COSMETIC® ensures a natural look while preserving your ability to express emotions.

BOTOX COSMETIC® is an injectable treatment targeting what are known as dynamic wrinkles, which are caused by repeated muscular contractions, such as frowning and squinting. BOTOX COSMETIC® is onabotulinumtoxinA, a sterile, purified form of botulinum toxin type A, derived from a purified protein. It works by relaxing the muscles that cause these dynamic wrinkles, giving your face a more relaxed and refreshed appearance. The procedure is quick, simple, and there is no downtime. BOTOX COSMETIC® enhances your unique look without sacrificing the natural expression in your face, and you’ll start to see results within 24 hours of treatment. BOTOX COSMETIC®  is intended to enhance your look, not change it. You can still smile, frown and be expressive.

Treatment areas where BOTOX COSMETIC® can be used include the frown lines between the eyebrows, the horizontal lines that run across the forehead, and the crow’s feet around the outer eyes. 

Concerned about losing facial expression? Rest assured, BOTOX COSMETIC® is designed to enhance, not alter, your appearance. Administered by skilled healthcare professionals, the treatment selectively relaxes targeted muscles, leaving other facial expressions intact. With no impact on sensory nerves, normal sensation is maintained in treated areas, allowing you to smile, frown, and express freely.

BOTOX COSMETIC® has been licensed by Health Canada since 1990, ensuring its safety and efficacy for wrinkle therapy. Its quick onset of action, lasting results, and minimal discomfort make it a popular choice for individuals seeking facial rejuvenation. In 2001, Health Canada approved BOTOX COSMETIC® for wrinkle therapy.

BOTOX COSMETIC® enhances your unique look without sacrificing the natural expression in your face, and you’ll start to see results as soon as 24 hours after your treatment, and the lines may continue to fade up to one week afterwards. The effects can last up to four months.

A BOTOX COSMETIC® treatment is quick and simple, with no downtime. After meeting with your health care practitioner to determine your desired outcome, the procedure itself takes only 10 to 15 minutes. A tiny amount of BOTOX COSMETIC® is injected with a fine needle into the muscle being treated- this process is virtually painless.

The price depends on the amount of BOTOX COSMETIC® needed and the areas of the face being treated. Your health care practitioner will determine the right amount of BOTOX COSMETIC® that you need to achieve a refreshed look and provide you with a cost estimate.

Dysport® is another FDA and Health Canada-approved injectable treatment for moderate to severe frown lines. Like BOTOX COSMETIC®, Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA) temporarily relaxes targeted muscles, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. With a treatment duration of just 10 to 20 minutes, Dysport® offers a convenient solution for facial rejuvenation.

  • Temporarily improves the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines
  • Softens facial wrinkles by relaxing targeted muscles
  • Quick treatment, typically lasting just 10 to 20 minutes
  • Results are visible within a few days and may last up to four months
  • FDA and Health Canada approved for cosmetic use since 2013
  • Provides a natural look by preserving untreated facial expressions
  • Safe and effective option with over 15 years of clinical use

Dysport® is formulated with a specialized type A botulinum toxin, similar to BOTOX COSMETIC®, known for its exceptional ability to relax muscles and inhibit sweating. When injected, Dysport® goes to work by blocking the signals from nerves to the treated muscles, specifically targeting those pesky upper muscles responsible for frown lines between the eyebrows.

By interrupting these nerve signals, Dysport® effectively reduces the movement of the targeted muscles, temporarily smoothing out wrinkles and lines. This process allows your skin to appear smoother, more refreshed, and rejuvenated – without compromising your natural expressions.

Think of Dysport® as your secret weapon against aging gracefully. With just a quick 10 to 20-minute treatment session, you can bid farewell to those unwanted frown lines and hello to a more confident, youthful you.

For over 15 years, Dysport® has been a trusted choice for those seeking to rejuvenate their appearance. In 2013, Health Canada bestowed its stamp of approval on Dysport® (Botulinum toxin type A for injection), recognizing its efficacy in temporarily improving the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines (glabellar lines) in adult patients under 65 years of age.

With its proven track record and Health Canada’s endorsement, Dysport® stands as a reliable option for individuals looking to address frown lines effectively. Trust in Dysport® to help you achieve smoother, more youthful-looking skin with temporary improvements that can leave you feeling confident and refreshed.

Dysport® is your answer to those pesky frown lines. The best part? Dysport® lets you keep your natural expressions. You can still smile, laugh, and show your emotions freely. This injection targets moderate to severe frown lines while leaving the rest of your face unchanged.

While both Dysport® and BOTOX COSMETIC® provide remarkable results when injected appropriately, the duration of effects may vary. Dysport® typically lasts 3-4 months, depending on dosage relative to BOTOX COSMETIC®. However, both treatments aim to improve facial aesthetics while preserving natural expression.

BOTOX COSMETIC® and Dysport® injections offer effective solutions for reducing the appearance of frown lines and crow’s feet, rejuvenating your appearance with minimal downtime. Whether you opt for BOTOX COSMETIC® or Dysport®, consult with a qualified healthcare professional to determine the best treatment plan tailored to your aesthetic goals and preferences. Restore your youthful appearance and confidence with these advanced cosmetic procedures.
