What can Botox do for me?

Botox smoothes the negative lines or wrinkles caused by repeated facial movements. Angry or sad lines that contribute to a tired or haggard appearance are eased and you will look smooth, fresh and well-rested following treatment. Another Botox advantage? Wrinkles cast shadows; the smoother the skin, the more light reflective and pleasing your complexion becomes.

How do neurotoxins work?

Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are sterile, purified proteins that relax the contraction of muscles that cause wrinkles to form. By temporarily blocking the nerve impulses responsible for muscle contractions, wrinkles are given a rest—no longer contributing to the deepening of lines. For over two decades, neurotoxins have been helping millions of patients, worldwide, look younger longer.

Chances are you know someone who is using Botox to age gracefully. The average Botox user is your girlfriend, neighbour, or co-worker who looks relaxed, happy and well-rested. Dr. Tkatch believes in natural results, and she and her skilled team inject Botox with the goal of full natural expression following treatment. Her goal is to smooth out the signs of aging, enhance your natural beauty, and watch your confidence soar!

What should I expect at my appointment?

A neurotoxin treatment is surprisingly quick (5-15 minutes) and Dr. Tkatch’s gentle touch makes it comfortable and painless for her patients. Most first-time visitors to MD Wellness Solutions are surprised to find it a pleasant experience which is further enhanced when their results become visible. Botox takes effect between 2-14 days, and lasts an average of three to four months months. Dysport neurotoxin takes effect on average a day earlier than Botox and lasts two weeks longer. Regular neurotoxin users often find that neurotoxin lasts longer over time due to the anti-aging, anti-wrinkle effects while it is active. In other words, you become younger in appearance with continued use.

How much will my Botox treatment cost?

Your treatment will be individualized based on your muscle activity, gender, history of neurotoxiun use and goals. In our clinic, a female frown Botox treatment ranges in cost from $120-$360 with an average cost of $240 plus tax. Male frown Botox treatment ranges from $240-$480 with an average cost of $360 plus tax. The cost of continuing to frown through life, however, is anyone’s guess!

What’s the difference between Botox and Fillers?

Botox relaxes dynamic muscles of facial expression and can soften the frown lines, forehead lines, and crows feet. It can also be used to slim the face by relaxing hypertrophied masseter/jaw muscles and be used for medical conditions such as chronic migraine, excessive sweating and tight pelvic muscles. Fillers are made of a natural sugar called hyaluronic acid that is depleted in the skin as we age. The artful replacement of hyaluronic acid by injection can help the loss of facial volume and elasticity as we age, or used to enhance our natural features. The combination of Botox and fillers is a home-run treatment that our injectors are very experienced at delivering. Both Botox and fillers can be done at the same visit, just let us know when you book so we schedule enough time to deliver the treatment result you want.
