A Modern Ottawa Botox Clinic

You can get amazing results in just days, and experience a healthy youthful glow no matter what your age is. Say goodbye to crow's feet for good, and say hello to Botox!

How Does Botox Work?

Botox is derived from a neurotoxic protein produced naturally by the body. Its cosmetic benefits are linked to its ability to paralyze tiny facial muscles, which can reduce frown lines and eliminate skin blemishes and other signs of aging. With a Botox injection, facial muscles relax, helping the face take on a younger, healthier and more vibrant look. That's why Botox injections are by far the most popular (and safest) cosmetic treatment in Ottawa. In fact, more than six million Botox treatments are administered each year around the globe, a testament to its popularity and effectiveness.

What Exactly Can I Use Botox For?

Botox treatments are primarily used to treat:
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Wrinkles on the forehead
  • Lines on the face (caused by years facial muscle contractions such as squinting)

Treatments can also:
  • Reduce dimpling on the chin
  • Help regain definition on the face that fades with age

Botox injections can help totally reshape your outward appearance, giving the eyes a fuller, younger, more expressive look, and infusing the face with a vitality usually only found in younger faces. Call our clinic on the phone today, and see if a Botox cosmetic procedure is right for you.

Is Botox Dangerous?

As mentioned above, there are over six million documented treatments administered each year. Botox has been used across many different medical disciplines for over twenty years, and even though most of us know it through its cosmetic uses, it was in fact first used to treat medical diseases. Botox cosmetic treatments have been approved by Health Canada, and the procedures have been rigorously peer-reviewed in medical journals. In our experience, a treatment administered by a licensed practitioner has a low risk of complications. It is important to review potential complications with Dr Bonaparte at the time of your visit. Dr Bonaparte and his team at The Ottawa Derm Centre, will install trust that our work is always done in the safest and most professional manner possible.

What is a Botox Procedure Like?

The process is really very simple. Once Botox is introduced into the muscles of your face, it relaxes them. The muscles in our face are just like those around the rest of our body. Someone who did 10,000 bicep curls would end up with large bicep muscles. In a similar fashion, our faces make millions of different movements throughout our lives while we express emotion. All of that squinting, frowning, smiling, and laughing adds up, hardening our muscles, and leading to blemishes on our faces. Coupling this muscular work with the natural processes involved in aging makes for a potent combination. That's why when some of the drug is administered to those facial muscles, the effects of ageing are not so apparent. And because the muscles no longer exert the same pressure on the skin, you can say goodbye to frown lines and other wrinkles!

How Long Does it Take?

Botox injections usually only takes 10 15 minutes, and most patients have any downtime after treatment. Some patients will experience bruising. Patients can theoretically pop in over their lunch breaks, or be in and out on a weekend morning. Results will be apparent within one week.

Is Botox Painful?

Most people describe the injection as uncomfortable, similar to getting a small needle. It is very uncommon for people to find the procedure painful.

How Long do Treatments Last?

Botox is not permanent, so if you want to have lasting effects, you will have to come in for additional treatments. On average, a typical treatment will last for 3 months. One related positive aspect of repeated visits is that there is a cumulative effect. In other words, the more you have, the longer each procedure lasts. Once your muscles are "trained" to relax, relaxing becomes easier in the future.

How Much Does a Treatment Cost?

A variety of factors are at play when costing a treatment, as circumstances vary from person to person. The price will always depend on the extent of the blemishes, how much of an effect you desire, and others. The best way to get an accurate assessment is to come in to our Ottawa location for a consultation.

What Are the Side Effects?

Serious Side effects from Botox injection are rare, and for the most part you won't have to worry about having any at all. That said, some people do see some minor, temporary bruising and headache being the most common. Dr Bonaparte and The Ottawa Derm Centre does everything possible to ensure your safety and reduce the chance of complications.
