Botox are injected into a muscle to reduce the movements that cause lines, such as frown lines, forehead lines, bunny lines, crows feet and lines around the mouth. These neuromodulators start working just days after injection and the full effect can be seen two weeks post-injection. This will result in softened lines and a more youthful appearance, while still looking natural. Botox treatments typically last between three to six months before wearing off, at which time, follow-up treatment is recommended to maintain optimal outcomes. Interesting Fact: Botox is a protein produced by these Clostridium botulinum. Call our Botox Regina clinic today.
There are alternatives to Botox injections like DYSPORT or NUCEIVA.

BOTOX TREATMENT CLINIC FAQS
Botox has quickly become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures across the
globe. Its ability to smooth out the look of fine lines and wrinkles in a relatively short period of time, along with the fact that it requires little to no down time for recovery, has millions of people heading to medical spas each year for treatment.
If you are thinking about getting a Botox treatment, you likely have a lot of questions. To put your mind at ease, we’ve put together some answers to our most commonly asked questions regarding the treatment.
WHAT ARE REGINA BOTULINUM TOXIN (BOTOX®) INJECTIONS AND HOW DO THEY WORK?
Botox, or botulinum toxin, is a neuromodulator that works beneath the skin’s surface to block signals from the nerves to the muscles. Once Botox is injected, muscles can only contract a little, or not at all, allowing the smoothing of lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle movement. It can also be used preventatively by targeting certain muscle groups to prevent wrinkles from appearing.
WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF REGINA BOTULINUM TOXIN INJECTIONS?
There are currently four types of botulinum toxin injections that are FDA-approved:
These products all serve the same purpose; however, they are manufactured by different companies.
HOW LONG DOES BOTOX LAST AFTER THE FIRST TREATMENT?
On average, your first Botox treatment in Regina will last between 3 and 4 months. With repeated treatment, you may notice the effects lasting even longer.
IS BOTOX BAD FOR YOU LONG TERM?
Botox is considered a low-risk procedure that has been used for decades successfully. Although uncommon, long-term side effects can be muscle-paralysis, eye irritation, allergic reactions, or the spreading of the toxins into surrounding tissues.
CAN YOU STOP BOTOX ONCE YOU START?
Yes. If Botox isn’t for you, you can certainly stop treatments. It’s important to remember that Botox doesn’t erase wrinkles, it essentially freezes them, so the wrinkles will come back eventually once treatment is stopped.
DOES BOTOX MAKE YOU LOOK OLDER AFTER IT WEARS OFF?
Botox won’t make you look older after it wears off, lines and wrinkles will return to your natural skin texture. Wrinkles and fine lines won’t be worse than before treatment, but they will eventually return without further or long-term Botox treatments. Visit our Regina Botox Clinic Today!
WHERE DOES BOTOX GO WHEN IT WEARS OFF?
Botox is metabolized and excreted after 3-4 months in the body. Once it stops functioning at the injection site, it’s broken down into amino acids and is then excreted by the kidneys or is “recycled” by the body for use in other proteins.
DOES BOTOX KILL YOUR MUSCLES?
No, Botox cannot destroy your muscles. It temporarily freezes the muscle(s) at the injection site. Long term use in the same facial area can however cause some muscle atrophy due to infrequent use.
CAN BOTOX SPREAD TO OTHER MUSCLES?
Botox needs to be professionally administered to avoid/minimize complications like the dreaded droopy eyelid! Once injected, it stays within a few millimetres of the original injection site. Rarely, a miscalculation of needle placement or injection depth can cause the Botox to spread a little too far, causing a droopy eyelid which will correct itself once the Botox has worn off.

WHAT HAPPENS IF BOTOX IS INJECTED INTO A NERVE?
Botox is injected into facial muscles, not the nerves. However, on the very rare occasion this happens (which would only be likely if the surgery person administering the Botox has no formal training) it could cause permanent nerve damage.
DO BOTOX INJECTIONS HURT?
The needle used in a Botox injection is very thin, and other than a pin-prick sensation upon injection, there should be no pain unlike a typical surgical procedure. Visit our Regina Botox Clinic Today!
WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER GETTING BOTULINUM TOXIN INJECTIONS?
After your Botox injection in Regina, be sure to follow all post-treatment instructions. You will likely be told to do the following:
- Rest for the rest of the day and NO exercise for at least 24 hours
- Avoid touching or rubbing the injection site
- Go make-up free for at least 24 hours
- Sit up for at least 4 hours after the procedure to prevent bruising and to prevent the Botox from potentially spreading from the injection site
- Avoid alcohol for 24 hours
- Avoid other facial treatments for 24 hours
- Avoid the sun for at least 4 hours

Upper face: avg $385
