FAQ about Cosmetic Injectables:
Is Botox and Fillers safe?
Yes! Botox and derma fillers has been thoroughly researched (more than 4,000 studies) & clinically used for over 20 years and is approved by both the HPB (Health Protection Branch of Canada) and the FDA. More than 20 million procedures have been performed since 2001.
Botox is a natural purified protein that is extracted from a bacteria and refined into a medicine. Similar to how penicillin is made. Botox® is a medicine that has been safely used for many years. It is used on children as young as 2 years old to treat cerebral palsy. These young children receive up to 6 TIMES an average cosmetic dose & receive this treatment every 3-4 months.
What does the treatment involve?
While there is no real downtime associated with this treatment, it is important to note that you may encounter some slight bruising and swelling directly after treatment, due to the needle. This can easily be masked by makeup. There are no long-term side effects of having wrinkle injections, meaning patients can resume their usual activities straight away, and can also fly post-treatment.
What are Fillers (Juvéderm) and how do they work?
As we age, the natural collagen and elastin in the skin lessens, as cells lose their ability to produce more of their youthful component. The skin becomes dryer, thinner and less able to fix itself. When we are born, we have plentiful amounts of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in our body, but as we get older this store of HA diminishes, leaving the skin less well supported, and so lines and wrinkles develop. By lifting and smoothing targeted folds and wrinkles by adding subtle volume, dermal fillers can make a difference to a person’s appearance, giving them a fresher look.
The treatment of wrinkles with dermal filler will usually involve injecting this naturally occurring product (HA) through a tiny needle. The discomfort is minimal as the treatment does not take long to perform. The aesthetic outcomes of treatments with dermal filler are seen immediately after the treatment. Treating wrinkles with dermal filler is fast, leaving no scars. The Juvéderm range of fillers contains a variety of products, which can be used to treat different areas, from fine lines on more delicate parts of the face to deep skin depressions.
Does the injection hurt?
No. It’s the same kind of tiny needle that diabetics use.
What are the possible side effects?
Side effects are very rare and are not permanent. Possible side effects are tenderness at the injections sight, small bruising, short term headache. If any adverse events occur, they will occur within the 1st week and will usually go away in 7-10 days.
