At North Medical Spa, we offer all neuromodulators including Botox™, Xeomin™, and Dysport (which are all equally safe and effective depending on the area of treatment), and have been approved by Health Canada and the FDA for cosmetic use following significant studies.
This injection treatment works below the skin’s surface to target the underlying muscle activity, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the face and minimizing crow’s feet around the eyes.
You may begin to notice changes within 24 to 48 hours, but you will typically see full results about 10-14 days following treatment. Although everyone is different, most clients maintain the results for four months following treatment.
With this treatment, most of our clients report minimal discomfort– it can feel like a pinch. Everyone is different, however if you’re concerned about pain, talk to your Medical Practitioner about applying a topical numbing cream before the treatment begins.
Yes, this treatment is safe – in fact, Botox™ is one of the most highly studied medical aesthetic treatments and is widely used throughout the world. Our highly trained North Medical Practitioners will be able to assess whether Botox™/ Xeomin™/ Dysport is right for you. To ensure your safety, it’s important to discuss your current state of health and is also vital to state any changes to your health and any medications you may be taking with your North Medical Practitioner at every appointment.
There is minimal downtime following this treatment and you can resume most normal activities right after. We ask that you do not lie down, exercise or have hot showers for 4 hours post-treatment. Please review our pre and post care procedures for full treatment recommendations.
