Skinjectables FAQs About Botox in Toronto
How Long Does It Take to Recover from An Injectable Wrinkle Relaxer Treatment?
Botox injections are an effective, minimally-invasive treatment option for patients who wish to address and even prevent some of the signs of aging, without expensive surgeries that require long recovery periods. With that said, patients can expect little or no downtime or recovery period after their Botox treatment, other than some tenderness at the injection site. Some patients experience mild bruising after botox. The bruising can appear right away, or within 1 or 2 days after the procedure, and will typically last from two days up to two weeks.
Please check out our other FAQs listed below for further information regarding our aftercare instructions.
In What Areas of The Face Can Botox Be Used?
Botox or Botulinum toxin is a widely used injectable to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that develop along the face and neck as we get older. As we make repeated facial expressions, such as frowning or raising our eyebrows, wrinkles are formed in our skin. Over time, these dynamic wrinkles begin to set in, and eventually will become permanently etched into our face. Botox injections are able to temporarily relax the muscles so that they no longer contract and form wrinkles, thereby smoothing out the appearance.

What Are the Differences Between Fillers and Injectable Wrinkle Relaxers?
Although it is easy to mistake fillers and wrinkle relaxers as being similar, each injectable is used to target different facial concerns. However, both can be used to improve your aesthetics to appear more youthful. Let’s take a closer look at these distinctions in more detail.
Injectable Wrinkle Relaxers
Injectable wrinkle relaxers, also known as Botox in Toronto, treat the underlying facial muscles to smooth out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Functionally, wrinkle relaxers work by temporarily relaxing or weakening specific muscles and preventing the formation of dynamic wrinkles (often the result of common facial expressions) such as frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines.
While cosmetic wrinkle relaxers can do wonders for lines that in constant motion, dermal fillers beautify the areas at rest. Dermal fillers are gel-like substance which are injected into the skin to target the loss of volume, soften and smooth facial wrinkles, and enhance facial contours. Common uses for dermal fillers include:
- Providing volume to the lips
- Plumping under eye contours
- Restoring volume to cheeks while enhancing cheekbones
- Improving symmetry
- Smoothing fine lines, creases, and folds.
