What is the leading wrinkle-reducer made from?
Neuromodulators such as BOTOX® and Dysport® are prescription medications produced in a controlled laboratory setting from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. Originally created and approved for the correction of crossed eyes and eyelid tremors, in 2002, this medication received FDA approval for frown lines between the eyebrows and the rest is history. In Toronto, BOTOX® is a top choice for cosmetic clients, and this is one of the most popular medications worldwide with its effectiveness and uses extensively studied and proven.

The injections are not deep and very fine needles are used- similar to an insulin needle. Therefore, most people describe the sensation as a pinprick and some injection sites don’t produce any pain at all. Dr. Kolenda will provide topical numbing ointment if required. It takes roughly three hours for the medication to bind to specific muscle receptors and patients begin to see a weakening of muscle movement in approximately 3-4 days.
Full effects can be appreciated by one-week post-treatment, and we’ll check in with you to ensure you don’t have any concerns or questions. We’ll recommend that patients schedule regular maintenance treatment before the product wears off, an average of 4 months apart. That ensures consistent results and won’t allow the muscles to regain considerable strength between treatments.
You’ll be able to return to your day without any downtime after your procedure. In most cases, no lasting marks or bruises are present; however, everybody has a different proclivity for bruising, so there is a slight chance you’ll develop a small bruise which can be covered with makeup. Ways to avoid this include staying away from any known blood thinning medications as approved by your doctor and avoiding herbal supplements in the weeks before treatment as well. Certain formulations with Omegas, Vit E, Ginseng, Ginko Biloba and others may lead to unnecessary bruising.
