Botox is one of the world’s most popular aesthetic treatments, and it grows in recognition every single year. Botox has been used as a therapeutic treatment for a multitude of indications since the 1970s, and was approved for cosmetic use in 2001. It is truly a wonder drug that treats fines lines and wrinkles, but also migraines, excessive sweating, urinary incontinence and side effects of Bell’s Palsy.

Botox has been cosmetically approved to treat fine lines and wrinkles in the upper face, on the forehead and around the eyes.

Botox In a Nutshell

What is it?

Botox is a neuromodulator, meaning it blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. Once injected, Botox stops your muscles from contracting, thus softening fine lines and wrinkles

Who is it for?

Any one looking to:

  • to soften fine lines, wrinkles
  • create a lip flip
  • reduce gum show
  • correct asymmetries
  • slim the jaw
  • prevent dimpling in the chin.

How It Works

As we get older, we develop fine lines and wrinkles due to constant muscle contraction overtime (frowning, raising our eyebrows etc.), and the loss of elasticity in our skin. Botox works by relaxing the muscles in the face which cause those fine lines and wrinkles. Botox can also be used to create a more open look to the eye, to raise the brow or correct asymmetries like uneven eyebrows. Many choose to get botox “preventatively” because they know they frown, squint or raise their eyebrows more frequently than they’d like.

Botox is a neurotoxin derived from Clostridium botulinum, an organism found in our natural environment. There are a few different versions of this neurotoxin, but we use Botox exclusively. It has the longest history of use, is the most widely used on the market, and has more published papers about its safety and efficacy than any other toxin. There’s a reason it’s the “kleenex” of neurotoxins.

Injection technique has come a long way in the last 20 years. Our goal is soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles without creating a “frozen look.” Sure, there are still some individuals after this aesthetic, but more and more we are giving “micro doses” to our patients. You still have movement and expression in your face, but it’s softer, less intense. We also start with a small dose, and work our way up if we have to. Giving you a natural look is always our main priority.

The Procedure

Botox is a very simple, safe, and effective treatment. The procedure takes about 10-15 minutes and there is no downtime. You can return to your regular activities immediately following treatment. Many patients come in over their lunch break.

Our expert MD injector will disinfect the area to be treated, you will then be asked to make various facial expressions, such as frowning or squinting, after which your provider will administer small injections to the appropriate muscle locations with a very fine micro needle. Most of our patients experience no pain with Botox injections.

Botox has become very widespread as an anti-aging injectable, however at MD Beauty Clinic we can’t stress enough how important the expertise of your provider is. Your injector’s experience, expertise, and technique is what will give you the best result. Our injectors are mentored both by our expert plastic surgeons and trained extensively by the company whose product they’re injecting. It’s important to know that while injectables can provide a fantastic result, some conditions require surgery. At MD Beauty Clinic, if that’s the case, we can refer you to a plastic surgeon. In other clinics where there is no surgeon, the patient may be recommended more injectables, which won’t end in the best result.

Is Botox for you?

Botox is a fantastic treatment but it’s not for everyone. It’s indicated mostly for the upper part of the face, and does not address sagging or volume loss. We use filler for that.

We highly recommend that you book an in-person complimentary consultation with one of our MD injectors in order to discuss your aesthetic goals, and assess whether this is the right treatment for you. Your treatment will always be 100% customized to you and your goals. No two faces are alike, so no two treatment plans are alike, either.

Who should not have Botox?

You should not have Botox if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, if you are allergic to onabotulinum toxin A or any of the ingredients in Botox, or if you are allergic to lidocaine. If you have had an allergic reaction to Dysport, you are most likely also allergic to Botox.

Also, certain facial attributes may not be conducive with Botox treatment, such as: ptosis (drooping upper eyelid), ectropion (drooping lower eyelid away from the eye), entropion (lower eyelid is turned inward), you have deep facial scars, thick facial skin, infections or other problems at the site of injection, or if you have weak muscles in the areas being treated.

When can I expect to see results?

You can expect to see initial results of Botox treatment within 3-5 days, and a complete result within 14 days. We always book a follow up appointment for you at the two week mark to assess how the dosage has settled. If you need a tweak, we do it right then and there.

Will I need more than one treatment?

The results of Botox last for approximately 3 to 4 months. We recommend that you repeat treatment every 3 months in order to maintain your result. However, it is totally fine to have longer intervals between treatments. You may also discontinue Botox at any time. If you do so, the treated area will return to the way it looked before treatment.

Are there any side effects?

There is no downtime when it comes to Botox. Some patients may experience a bit of redness or a tiny bruise at the injection site, however this is very small, can be easily concealed with makeup and should resolve itself soon after treatment.

Should I Let My Botox Wear Off Completely?

Read Article

I have been attending for close to 10 years now. I started with the M10 skincare and peels and eventually grew into needing/wanting some Botox injections. Everything you need in one spot. I’m a mom and a woman in finance, so my schedule is brutal. I love that I don’t have a preference for one nurse - all of them are super capable and professional. I’m happy to get in with whoever, whenever. I can’t recommend this clinic enough to my friends and family.”

I started seeing Avni nearly two years ago for injections, and I’ve been hooked ever since. I’m extremely nervous when it comes to injecting anything into my face, and from the onset, she made me feel comfortable and at ease. Her professionalism is second to none- she explains everything in detail, all while bearing the brunt of my neurotic worries (thanks Avni!) She is honest, friendly and genuine which results in the best treatment for her clients. I would recommended her to anyone!

I’ve been coming to the MD Beauty Clinic for more than a couple years. I wish everyone who wanted work done would come here. I can always be assured nobody knows I’ve had anything done. Because of their trusting hands, I feel more beautiful, a better version of myself, more confident about how I look and I’m always told I look mid 30’s instead of 50. I’m lucky to have found them and wouldn’t go anywhere else. I have the utmost trust in how the clinic is run, the advice I receive, how I’m treated as a client and what my results look like.

I have been seeing nurse Avni for botox for about 2 years now and each time my results are amazing! Avni is fantastic! She is very educated, always has a welcoming persona and helps also that she has a great sense of humor as I m always a bit nervous of needles. Recently I decided to get my lips done and I LOVE the results! Avni know exactly what amount to use to enhance my features and also look natural at the same time. I feel and look younger, rested and hydrated. Also I need to mention that all the staff at the plastic surgery clinic are welcoming, knowledgeable and experienced.

Have been coming to the clinic for over a year and always leave with a smile on my face when I’m finished my appointment. Nurse Avni is a superstar at what she does. Always smiling, totally personable and listens attentively to my concerns. Such great bedside care! and her technique at injectables is by far the best. I might go into my appointments a bit anxious with the whole thought of having a needle poke but with Avni she has a way of keeping things chill and pain free. I am thankful to have the hands of an angel working on my face, wouldn’t have it any other way.

I’ve been going to both yorkville and Mississauga clinics for years and have always had a very positive experience. Avni has treated me for a few sessions now and is always so gentle and caring. They don’t rush you into anything you don’t need, while providing honest opinions and recommendations on what the best and most natural results will be. Having a natural result is the most important thing to me and I always feel like I am in good hands and will come out with the results I want.

I came to Nurse Avni for a consultation and thought I knew exactly what I wanted, where I wanted it. Well, I was wrong! Avni took so much time and spoke to me about what would work best for me with respect to fillers and botox and where I could get the best look for my budget and she sculpted my face strategically.
Avni truly is an artist, a sculpture actually and I loved working with her to create a better version of me both inside and out. She suggested what we should do without any embarrassment or judgement, I felt very at ease. She spent an hour and a half with me making sure I was comfortable, relaxed and pain free. The results were incredible and I am so happy with the outcome.
Thank you Avni for being honest and understanding at the same time. You are amazing!

I absolutely love seeing Avni for Botox injections. I have been seeing her for over a year now and she’s always attentive, never lets you get more work done than you need and most importantly leaves you looking AMAZING!! Can’t wait till my next visit!

I have had very positive results with botox at MD beauty clinic. I get it to relax an overactive TMJ muscle (I grind my teeth at night) and also to help prevent fine lines and a gummy smile. I go to Avni and trust her completely- she consults with me about what I’m looking to achieve and helps me get a very natural result… no one knows I’ve had botox unless I tell them; they just think I”m aging well.

After quarantine, I excitedly made my way to the MD Beauty Clinic to see Avni for my third round of lip fillers. From my first consultation with her to my most recent experience she makes my appointment fun but more importantly, comfortable. I LOVE my lips and more than that, I love that Avni doesn’t let me do more than what she thinks will look good on me at each appointment. Thanks for making me feel my best!

There are not enough adjectives to describe Avni and her unparalleled skills!
I came in for a consultation for the dark circles under my eyes. What I didn’t know at the time, and have come to learn in the past year, is that Avni is the smartest and most kind-hearted individual you will ever come across.
She took the time to explain the various options for a solution, as well as answer all of my questions. I even sent her follow up emails with multiple questions and she was so quick to respond.
Based on all the information provided, I decided to go ahead with the Redensity II approach.
At my first appointment, I was a little apprehensive and Avni took the time to explain everything that was going to happen and continued to explain while she was performing the injections. I felt like I was pretty calm and collected but she recognized that I was having a little moment and proceeded to let me know that what I was experiencing was very normal. She gave me some water and some cooling gel packs for my wrists and low and behold – I was all good. We proceeded with the other eye and that was completed without a hitch.
Since then, I have also received Botox injections and I just want to say that this woman performs magic! My powerful frown line has completely disappeared while still keeping me with some movement to look normal.
Her knowledge and experience are incomparable to any other. I almost don’t want to shout this from the rooftops so that I can keep her all to myself but I recognize that really isn’t fair!
If you are on the fence about having any procedure done, I highly recommend you book an appointment with Avni and find out for yourself how incredible she really is.

Nurse Avni is a wizard with the cannula needle!!! Last December, I received some under eye filler for the first time. I really appreciated the time Avni took to walk me through the process as well as map and plan everything out on my face. The results were incredible! I went from looking tired and worn out to looking like I had slept for a year. So refreshed! Avni even took the time to follow up with me a few times post treatment to ensure everything was healing properly and gave me tips for massaging. Really great experience overall!

I have been seeing Avni for Botox for nearly 2 years now and she is amazing!! I have a very bad phobia of needles but Avni is so calming and honestly all you feel is a tiny poke. Each time I see Avni she is up front and honest about how much I need and never tries to inject more than necessary (in fact, she likes to do the least amount of units possible to achieve the results I want). I like a more natural look and you honestly cannot tell that I have done Botox – in fact unless I tell people, they would never know! I just get comments on how my skin “glows” and how fresh I look 🙂 The Botox for my crows feet is especially great as it ‘lifts’ my entire eye area and makes such a world of difference. I would highly recommend Avni and the MD Beauty Clinic – each experience I have there is fantastic!

Avni is the only person I would ever let touch my face. It lasts long and isn’t noticeable that I have anything done. I feel safe and confident every time!

I recently got my Botox done by Avni, and my skin has never looked as good as it does now. Avni also introduced me to Miracle 10 Skincare and I’ve been hooked since.

If you have any fear or are hesitant to getting Botox, fear no more, this clinic has the best nurse injectors in the biz. My first Botox experience was at this clinic and they really paid attention to my concerns and my fears with tremendous empathy, patience and care. They answered my questions thoroughly and didn’t rush me along. My whole experience was 5-star all the way and I would highly recommend making this clinic your go-to!

I do not do well with needles. I knew I wanted botox but was very scared. I shared my fears with my injector and she was so attentive and caring with me. I’m so happy I was able to go through with it. Amazing experience and amazing results (by the way, it was not scary and it did not hurt!).

I’ve been going to the clinic for years and have always had great experiences here. The staff are awesome! I’ve been getting Botox for years as well and saw a new nurse a month ago, Deborah. She was great! She went through my whole file with me and listened to what my needs/wants were before proceeding. I definitely recommend this place for all your injection needs.

This place truly cares about its patients and getting your face exactly right. My muscles respond intensely Botox and so we have to go gradually. This place is the only one that has ever fully understood that.
