Botox Cosmetic: fact versus fiction

24 January 2018 — Rejuvenating injections

Injections of Botox® Cosmetic is considered the most popular treatment in North America and, not surprisingly, is also one of the most talked about! Good or bad? Toxic or natural? With so many questions, how do you separate fact from fiction? We’ve put together our top 5 Botox® myths explaining why you’ve got nothing to worry about!

1| It’s dangerous!


Botox® Cosmetic has been in use in hospital settings for 30 years and is recognized for its therapeutic benefits, especially in the treatment of hyperhidrosis and certain neurological diseases. For the past 15 years, it has been approved for the treatment of expression lines by leading governmental health agencies in the world, including Health Canada. Dermapure uses only the purest molecule available on the market today and relies on a team of highly qualified and experienced doctors who ensure that the treatment is carried out safely and that it adheres to all established protocols.

2| It’s not worth it if you’re under 40


We all experience the effects of aging differently. Whether you’re 30 or 50, many factors unique to you will have an impact on the quality of your skin and cause different expression lines to appear. That’s why Botox® Cosmetic is used increasingly as a preventive treatment, most often on the glabella (middle of the forehead) and crow’s feet. A personalized evaluation is required to properly identify your objectives and to assess the condition of your skin. The doctor can then determine a treatment that’s right for you and which brings about beautiful results.

3| Stopping injections of Botox® Cosmetic will make things worse!


The effects of Botox® Cosmetic injections last from 3 to 6 months, depending on individual, the treatment areas, and the dosage used. Putting a permanent end to treatments only means that the natural signs of aging will begin to reappear gradually—nothing more!

4| My face will have that frozen look


Since Dermapure is committed to natural results that won’t make your face appear overly frozen, Botox® Cosmetic is used mainly on the upper face area, which treats the forehead, frown lines (also known as glabellar lines) and crow’s feet. The secret to beautiful results rests in just the right amount of product and it’s important that you consult an experienced doctor who favours natural-looking results above all else. It’s a guiding philosophy that each member of our medical team has fully supported since we opened our very first clinic!

5| The injections are painful


The use of small needles and an anesthetic cream help keeps discomfort to a minimum. Some doctors also like to work with a cannula to limit injection points and minimize the risk of bruising. Plus, the injections themselves only last a few minutes, depending on treatment area. Even the most pain-averse individuals get through treatment just fine! Dermapure relies on a team of highly qualified and experienced doctors whose approach to care is aligned with our guiding philosophy: to create results that look natural. A precision dose is required to smooth expression lines while helping the face retain its natural appearance and movements.
