Learn how Dr. Brownrigg in Ottawa, ON, can turn back the clock on your appearance with the help of BOTOX injections...
What Is BOTOX?
BOTOX Cosmetic provides patients who visit our plastic surgery practice with a convenient and minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that can be administered in minutes. Made of a refined botulinum toxin, BOTOX Cosmetic is an effective muscle relaxant, which in turn results in the smoothing of wrinkles in the overlying skin. The results of this safe and effective treatment can last for months.
A flexible solution to rejuvenate your appearance, BOTOX treatment can be tailored to meet your individual goals. You can choose to treat a single issue that gives you pause when you look in the mirror or the lines around your eyes, between your brows, and on your forehead.
Why Is BOTOX Such a Popular Cosmetic Treatment?
Over-the-counter skincare regimens may provide benefits to your appearance, but even the finest products cannot achieve the same results as BOTOX injections. And while facial plastic surgery is certainly effective, many people aren't ready for it or simply don't have pronounced signs of aging. Dr. Brownrigg will gladly discuss all of your options at our Ottawa plastic surgery practice.
One of the most popular injectables available, benefits of BOTOX include:
Individual treatment times will vary depending on your desired results, but BOTOX treatment sessions can be completed in as little as 10 minutes. This means you can receive BOTOX injections during your lunch break and return to your busy schedule without delay.
A minimally invasive facial treatment, a small needle is used to inject BOTOX. If desired, Dr. Brownrigg can administer an anesthetic around the injection site to help minimize discomfort. You can return to non-strenuous activity immediately after receiving injections at our clinic.
It takes a couple of days for patients to notice the benefits of botulinum toxin on their appearance. You can expect lines and wrinkles to continue to smooth out for about two weeks. Results last three to six months before requiring touch-up treatment.

Is BOTOX Safe?
You may be wondering why someone would inject botulinum toxin, but rest assured, BOTOX is both safe and effective. In fact, botulinum toxin has been shown effective in treating a range of conditions including chronic migraines and TMJ dysfunction. According to the United States National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, "BOTOX is relatively safe and does not result in any adverse side effects."
Possible Side Effects from BOTOX
While the risk of complications is very rare, possible side effects include bleeding, swelling, erythema, and pain at the injection site. Injections done by someone without proper training may also result in a droopy eyelid.
When administered by a skilled doctor, the risk of sagging of the eyelid and other side effects is greatly minimized. Dr. Brownrigg will discuss every aspect of your treatment at our Ottawa, ON, clinic so that you can make an informed decision.
