What Are Botox® Injections?
Botox® injections are noted primarily for the ability to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. They’re also used to treat conditions such as neck spasms (cervical dystonia), excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), an overactive bladder and lazy eye. BOTOX injections may also help prevent chronic migraines.
Neuromodulators are wrinkle-relaxing injections of botulinum toxin – commercially known as BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport, Xeomin or Jeuveau – that are used to treat wrinkles, frown lines and crow’s feet.
How Do Botox Injections Work?
A neuromodulator treatment utilizes tiny needles to relax targeted muscles around the treatment area; transmissions of motor signals from the nerves are temporarily stopped. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by repeated muscle contraction. In the absence of signals from the nerves, the muscles aren’t able to contract, leading to a softening of the wrinkles.
Neuromodulator treatments are used to treat frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) as well as other dynamic facial wrinkles (crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles) caused by repeated muscle contractions.

Botox® Injections Benefits
Add Volume to Your Face
If you want to add volume to your face, fillers are a perfect choice. The best areas to target are under the eyes, thinned cheeks, and lips. Hyaluronic Acid is a natural substance, so it is ideal for anyone who suffers from severe allergy problems.
You’ll See Immediate Results
One way your skin benefits from Botox or fillers is the immediacy of the results. It only takes one session for you to notice the difference. However, the best results are achieved over time through the implementation of a treatment plan.
The Effects Are Long-Lasting
When you use a product like Botox or a similar brand, you aren’t working on the lines that are already visible but reducing the chances of developing new ones. In most cases, patients will start a treatment plan and then eventually taper off the number of injections they need.
Eliminate the Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Botox is for those who are experiencing wrinkles in places where they hold a lot of tension; think frown lines, furrowed brows, etc. By freezing the muscles in these areas, you prevent deeper lines from forming.
Botox® Injections – Cost
The cost of a Botox® injection treatment varies and will depend on the optimal dosage, approach, and technique for the treatment area for each and every patient.
Here at Radiance Plastic Surgery, Botox® injections are priced at $10/unit. If you receive up to 20 units in your forehead, you could be looking at a total of about $200 to $300 for treatment of horizontal forehead lines. The typical cost of Botox in Calgary, Edmonton and Canmore varies anywhere from $125 to $900
There are a few additional factors affecting your Botox® injections –
1. The Strength of Your Muscles
Stronger muscles will require more product for maximum effectiveness.
2. Injection Placement
An understanding of proper placement is key to minimizing the cost of your injections. Improper placement may not only give you undesirable results but also increase the cost.
3. Treatment Time
It takes experience to understand the right injection amount for a particular situation.
Botox® Injections – How Long Does It Last?
Well, don’t we wish our Botox® Injections lasted forever? Unfortunately, it doesn’t. Eventually, the action of the neurotoxin will wear off and the nerves will again be able to send those signals to the muscles to start working or contracting.
In general, Botox® lasts 2-6 months, depending on the amount that has been injected and a variety of external factors. Some patients can experience results in which in lasts longer, in that 4-6 month range, or shorter, in that 2-month range. It is also common for first-timers to notice that it may not last as long initially but typically lasts longer after the second treatment. Each patient has a unique experience and results may vary.
At the end of this period, the Botox® is completely eliminated from your body. If you wish to continue to reduce wrinkles or solve sweating problems, you will need to request further Botox® injections.
Botox® Injections Frequently Asked Questions
Botox® has been used safely and successfully for decades. It is fast, effective, and the side effects are usually barely noticeable and gone within a few days. Despite the long term Botox® effects, it is a safe way to minimize signs of aging and enhance features.
People easily get these two types of injectables confused all the time, but here’s an easy way to distinguish between the two: Botox® is for limiting muscle movement, fillers are for building volume.
Botox® reduces the activity of muscles in the face that cause wrinkles. Facial fillers, however, fill the trouble areas with a gel made up of hyaluronic acid, which helps to plump and lift the skin to replace volume loss.
Cosmetic Botox® is FDA approved for use on
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Horizontal lines on the forehead
- Wrinkles between the eyebrows
Any injection can hurt, but the needles used for Botox® injections are very small, so pain is usually minimal.
The amount of Botox® you’ll need depends entirely on a few contributing factors. These include:
- The type of wrinkles you’d like to treat
- Your unique aesthetic goals
- The degree of muscle movement in your face
- The number of times you’ve had Botox® in the past
- Your health history
Common short-term side effects of any injectable may include:
- Muscle weakness near the injection sites
- Slight bruising
