Are you looking for a way to reduce wrinkles and fine lines on your face? At SKN, we offer safe and effective Botox treatments that can help you achieve a more youthful appearance. Our team of experienced and certified medical professionals is dedicated to providing the highest quality care and results.

At SKN, we use only the highest-grade neuromodulators including Botox, Dysport, Nuceiva, and Jeuveau. Depending on each person’s individual needs, we will carefully choose the best product to maximize results and ensure safety. Neuromodulators work to temporarily block nerve impulses. Blocking these nerve impulses relaxes the muscles making wrinkles and lines less noticeable. These products are most effective when used to treat wrinkles or lines that haven’t taken full form or only appear when you do things like smile, or frown.

What is Botox?

Botox is a cosmetic treatment that uses a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin to temporarily paralyze the muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines. It is considered a safe and minimally invasive procedure that can provide dramatic results with little to no downtime.

Patient Testimonials

Angelica and Dr. Pirani are AMAZING! They are professional, patient and truly care about their clients. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my face - recommend for all aesthetic procedures and facials.

The facial express felt amazing and Angelica made it even more soothing with her lovely approach. My skin has never felt better and looking forward to seeing you again.

I highly recommend this medical spa. I'm from Michigan and I was looking for a place in Toronto that has the dermalinfusion treatment and found SKN. I booked an appointment with Angelica and she was so professional and spent a lot of time getting to know my skin. I am very acne prone so I did the dermalinfusion to help with acne and my skin was so amazing after the treatment. I have tried a few medical spas in Toronto and I am so glad I finally found a place worth going to!

Overview

Botox®

Botox® is the brand name of a toxin derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. This highly advanced toxin has been isolated so that small amounts may be injected into the human body for several uses. The most common use of Botox® is to temporarily limit muscle activity that is causing wrinkles.

Dysport®

Much like the more commonly used Botox®, Dysport® is a neuromodulator that limits muscle activity. Dysport® is believed to have a slightly faster onset than Botox®.

Xeomin®

Xeomin® is one of the newest products we use at SKN but it can still be extremely effective. Like the more commonly know Botox®, it works to eliminate wrinkles by blocking nerve impulses that cause muscle activity. The unique thing about Xeomin® is that it contains no additives.

Nuceiva® / Jeuveau®

Nuceiva® / Jeuveau® is the newest neuromodulator on the Canadian market. It is only used for aesthetic purposes. Studies indicate essentially equivalent results with Botox®. It is commonly referred to as "Newtox" on social media.

Botox FAQ

Can Botox age you?

No, Botox itself does not age you. In fact, Botox is often used as a cosmetic treatment to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, making the skin look smoother and more youthful.

Botox is derived from a purified form of botulinum toxin, which temporarily paralyzes or relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles. By injecting Botox into specific facial muscles, it can smooth out wrinkles and prevent them from becoming more prominent.

However, it's important to note that the effects of Botox are temporary, typically lasting around 3-4 months. As the effects wear off, the muscles gradually regain their movement, and wrinkles may become visible again. In this sense, Botox does not prevent the natural aging process, but it can help temporarily diminish the signs of aging.

It's worth mentioning that factors such as genetics, lifestyle choices, sun exposure, and skincare routines play a significant role in the overall aging process. While Botox can be an effective tool in reducing the appearance of wrinkles, it is not a comprehensive solution to all aspects of aging.

Can Botox cause weight gain?

Botox does not cause weight gain.

Can Botox lift eyebrows?

Yes, Botox can be used to lift the eyebrows. The results are usually subtle but it depends on each individual.

Does Botox make you look older after it wears off?

No, Botox does not make you look older after it wears off. Botox is a temporary treatment that typically lasts around 3-4 months. It temporarily relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles, resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance during its effect.

When the effects of Botox wear off, the muscles gradually regain their movement, and wrinkles may become visible again. However, the return of wrinkles or facial lines does not make you look older than you did before receiving Botox injections.

It's worth noting that the long-term impact on your appearance depends on various factors, including the frequency of Botox treatments, your skin's natural aging process, lifestyle choices, and overall skincare regimen. Consistent and appropriate use of Botox injections, along with a comprehensive anti-aging skincare routine, may help minimize the appearance of wrinkles over time.

It's recommended to consult with a qualified healthcare professional or a licensed provider who can provide personalized advice based on your specific situation and desired outcomes.

How long does Botox last?

Botox treatments typically last for three to four months. However, the duration of the treatment can vary depending on the individual and the area being treated.

Is this type of treatment safe?

Our experienced team of physicians and care providers are here to make sure everything goes smoothly. We will work with you to design a custom treatment plan that will safely and effectively improve your excessive sweating condition. All of our treatments have been tested to ensure the safety of our patients.

Does Botox hurt?

The experience of receiving Botox injections can vary from person to person, but many individuals report minimal discomfort or pain during the procedure. Botox injections are typically performed using a very fine needle, which helps minimize any potential discomfort.

Some people may describe the sensation of Botox injections as a slight pinprick or a brief stinging sensation. However, the discomfort is generally mild and short-lived. The procedure is typically quick, and any discomfort or pain usually subsides shortly after the injections are administered.

Can I have wine after Botox?

We usually recommend avoiding alcohol for at least 24 hours after your injection session to decrease bruising.

Who should not get Botox?

While Botox is generally safe and well-tolerated by most individuals, there are certain situations and conditions where Botox injections may not be suitable or should be approached with caution. Here are some examples of people who should consult with a healthcare professional before receiving Botox:

Pregnant or breastfeeding individuals: The safety of Botox during pregnancy and breastfeeding has not been definitively established. It's recommended to avoid Botox injections during these periods as a precautionary measure.
Allergic reactions: Individuals with a known allergy to any of the ingredients in Botox, including botulinum toxin type A or albumin, should avoid Botox injections.
Neuromuscular disorders: People with certain neuromuscular conditions such as myasthenia gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome may have an increased risk of complications from Botox injections. It's important to discuss these conditions with a healthcare professional before considering Botox.
Infection at the injection site: If there is an active infection or skin condition at the planned injection site, it is advisable to postpone Botox injections until the area has healed.
Medications and medical conditions: Certain medications or medical conditions may interact with Botox or increase the risk of side effects. It's crucial to inform your healthcare provider about any medications, supplements, or medical conditions you have to ensure Botox is safe for you.
It's important to consult with a qualified healthcare professional or a licensed provider who can assess your individual situation, medical history, and provide personalized advice regarding whether Botox is suitable for you.

Please note that this response is not exhaustive, and it's always best to consult with a healthcare professional who can evaluate your specific circumstances and provide guidance based on your unique medical history.

How does Botox treatment work?

Botox acts by blocking the signals that cause a muscle to contract. This relaxes the muscle, smoothing lines in the skin.
