What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is the brand name for a purified, low-molecular-weight protein made from the botulinum toxin. It has been used safely in Canada and across the world for the past 30 years. BOTOX® injections are the most commonly administered aesthetic procedure performed worldwide.
What Does a BOTOX® Treatment Involve?
BOTOX® treatments must be administered by a licensed and experienced professional. For the treatment to be effective and successful, your dermatologist must be skilled at identifying the exact injection sites to maximize its impact.
At Kingsway Dermatology and Cosmetic Centre in Etobicoke, your Dermatologists are the experts in facial anatomy. They will analyze your facial structure, facial expressions, and treatment goals to create a customized treatment plan.
Your personalized plan includes how much BOTOX® should be administered and the precise location of injections, as well as how frequently the treatment should be performed to maximize and maintain results and achieve patient goals.
The injections are gentle and may cause a slight pinching sensation. for some people, they are imperceptible. In some cases there may be a tiny bruise, but generally, within an hour, no one will ever know you had it done.
The injection process itself should take about 10 minutes.
At Kingsway Dermatology and Cosmetic Centre, our team of Dermatologists are highly trained Master Injectors with extensive experience in facial injectables. Facial rejuvenation using BOTOX® COSMETIC, JUVÉDERM and other injectables is truly an art form. Injection technique and experience is important for your desired outcome.

You’re in good hands with us. Our Dermatologists have been working with these injections since they first became approved in Canada.
How Do BOTOX® Injections Treat Wrinkles?
Wrinkles form as a result of repetitive use of certain muscles, such as smiling, frowning, concentrating, chewing, and squinting. These recurring contractions etch fine lines and even deep grooves into your skin over time. Coupled with the natural loss of collagen, the problem worsens as we get older. The more your muscles contract and the less your skin is able to bounce back to its smooth, unlined condition, the more visible wrinkles become.
BOTOX® treatments can freshen your appearance by preventing the full contraction of wrinkle-causing facial muscles. BOTOX® injections accomplish this by blocking the nerves adjacent to key muscles from firing. When the message to contract does not get through, the muscles in question stay relaxed and the skin does not crease to reveal long-standing lines and furrows.
When performed well, the difference between your appearance before and after a BOTOX® injection is natural and beautiful, with a relaxed and pleasant facial expression.
The protein injected during a BOTOX® treatment naturally breaks down over three to six months, depending on the area it is injected into and how dynamic the muscle is, meaning how much that muscle typically moves. Because of its temporary nature, clients may choose to visit us for regular treatments to preserve an ongoing wrinkle-free, relaxed look.
Are BOTOX® Injections My Only Option?
While BOTOX® treatments effectively minimize the appearance of certain facial wrinkles and lines, you may wish to combine the results with other procedures.
A BOTOX® treatment can be safely paired with a wide variety of treatments, including dermal fillers, lasers for pigmentation and broken capillaries, tightening procedures, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion to create a healthy, radiant, and youthful appearance.
