Wrinkles develop as muscles under the skin contract when we laugh, smile, frown or express emotions in any way. Over time, as the muscles contract and relax again and again, the skin starts to show ‘patterns.’ Wrinkles, in essence, are the visible signs of these patterns. Botox works by countering the effects of the muscles under skin, and by weakening its ability to contract. It stops the skin from creasing, and leaves you with even, smooth skin you’ll love.
Botox is also an excellent treatment for ‘preventative aging’, meaning it can help stop these fine lines and wrinkles from forming in the first place when treated early. Clients can begin this treatment in their early 20’s, effectively helping to prevent expression wrinkles in their later years.
Each treatment takes only minutes to perform, with results showing approximately 3 - 14 days post treatment. These results can last anywhere from 3 - 4 months, so maintenance is required. At Beautiful U Medi Spa, you can rest assured knowing your Botox treatments are always administered in a safe, hygienic facility; well equipped to take care of all your wrinkle needs.

The injections cause the injected muscles to “relax” so that they no longer contract and cause wrinkles to form. Botox also blocks nerve impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are directly related to expression lines. After a treatment, the skin overlying the treated area becomes smooth and unwrinkled.
Discomfort is very minimal. The injections are very precise, using a very small amount of Botox in each specific location.
Botox is Health Canada approved and has been used as a safe, successful treatment for more than 15 years.
Temporary bruising is the most common side effect. In some rare cases, the toxin can migrate and cause temporary weakness in nearby muscles. Side effects may include temporary local bruising/swelling, redness and discomfort, which usually subsides within a short period of time.
Botox can deliver a more youthful appearance by smoothing out dynamic wrinkles within 3 – 14 days. 3 – 4 months is the average lifespan for the benefits from Botox injections. This varies from patient to patient, and clinical studies have shown that the duration increases over time, resulting in longer effects and less frequent treatments.
