FOCUS ON BOTOX

WHAT IS BOTOX®?

Botox®, made by Allergan, has been used for more than 20 years and has many different medical applications. Botox® Cosmetic is a purified protein. It is used as a simple, non-surgical procedure for facial rejuvenation in women and men aged 18 to 65.

Botox® Cosmetic in Peterborough is administered by Euphoria Wellness Spa’s medical doctors, also specially trained to provide Botox® injections.

Today, Botox® Cosmetic has become the most popular physician-administered cosmetic treatment in North America with an estimated 3 million treatments performed annually. It has also received a 97% satisfaction rating among users.

WHAT ARE THE MOST POPULAR USES?

  • Botox® Cosmetic is an effective way to decrease the appearance of frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet.
  • Botox® can be administered at Euphoria to treat chronic migraines.
  • Botox® can also be administered for hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating.

WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE FOR BOTOX® COSMETIC?

  1. Botox® injections are carefully administered by one of Euphoria’s medical doctors on staff.
  2. You will not be given anesthesia since the treatment is only minimally invasive.
  3. The doctor’s treatment will last about 10 minutes, taking place in a private treatment room at Euphoria Wellness Spa. A very fine needle is used, which feels like a quick series of pinpricks  in the areas to be treated.
  4. The Botox will start to work by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles or lines to appear.  A treatment takes approximately 3-14 days to take full effect.
  5. NOTE: Discuss preparation with the doctor at Euphoria prior to treatment. For example, it is best to stop taking Aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications a week before treatment.

WHAT IS THE FREQUENCY OF THIS TREATMENT?

One 10-minute treatment of Botox® Cosmetic can provide a noticeable difference within a few days. Results typically last 4-6 months.

WHAT IS THE RESULT?

The result of using Botox® Cosmetic is that of providing a “refreshed appearance” says Dr. Crawford Dobson, Euphoria’s Medical Director. He adds, “The effects are subtle, and yet definitely create a more youthful look since frown lines and wrinkles are diminished.”
