Botox® Cosmetic Treatments
Wrinkles are one of the first and most obvious signs of aging and, unfortunately, they occur naturally as we grow older. Botox® Cosmetic was designed to relax the facial muscles underneath the skin to create a smooth and refreshed appearance. Botox® is able to help reduce wrinkles by stopping the process that leads to their creation, giving your skin the chance it needs to soften and minimize the appearance of fine lines. In 2020, there was an impressive 1.5 million Botox® injectable treatments performed in North America alone! This goes to show how popular the Botox® Cosmetic procedure is, due to its effectiveness and safe track record.

What Are BOTOX® COSMETIC Injections?
BOTOX® COSMETIC treatments 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® COSMETIC 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.

What can I expect from my BOTOX® COSMETIC treatment?
Prior to your BOTOX® COSMETIC treatment, our trained injectors will discuss your treatment goals and perform a full facial analysis to determine and establish which areas need to be treated. Patients who have received neuromodulator treatments indicate that the injections can feel like a small pinch.
Following BOTOX® treatments, patients experience little more than pinpoint redness around treatment sites. Results take effect, subtly and gradually, between 3 and 14 days of treatment. When expertly provided, neuromodulator treatments help you look younger and soften lines that might make you look tired, angry or stressed. It’s an easy way to get that well-rested, energized glow so how you look on the outside matches how you feel on the inside.
BOTOX® Neuromodulator treatments are Health Canada approved and have helped millions of people around the world gain the youthful look they wanted. Additionally, it is commonly used to treat other facial wrinkles, such as crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles, caused by repeated muscle contractions over time. These are referred to as dynamic wrinkles.
When expertly performed, BOTOX® treatments help you look youthful radiant and soften lines that might make you look tired, angry or stressed. BOTOX® treatments are an easy, painless and fast avenue to get that well-rested, energized glow so you can look on the outside, how you feel on the inside.
How Much Do BOTOX® COSMETIC Treatments Cost?
The cost of a BOTOX® 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® is 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
How Long Does BOTOX® COSMETIC Last?
Well, don’t we wish BOTOX® 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® treatments.
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.[/cq_vc_accordion_item][cq_vc_accordion_item accordiontitle=”What Areas Can Botox® Treat?”]Cosmetic Botox® is FDA approved for use on
