BOTOX Cosmetic in Moncton, New Brunswick

What is BOTOX Cosmetic?

BOTOX Cosmetic is the commercial name of botulinum toxin – a protein that corrects facial lines and creases when injected into specific locations. This wrinkle-reducing treatment has become a household name over the past two decades. Dr. Jayson Dool offers BOTOX Cosmetic treatments for Moncton, New Brunswick, men and women who wish to achieve a more youthful appearance without undergoing cosmetic surgery.

BOTOX Cosmetic Benefits

Each smile, frown, or smirk requires the contraction of several facial muscles. Over a lifetime, these contractions gradually become frozen in place, leading to what are known as "dynamic wrinkles." Injections of BOTOX Cosmetic target these muscles specifically, reducing the appearance of:

  • Vertical "frown lines" and horizontal creases on the forehead
  • Horizontal bands on the neck
  • Crow's feet around the eyes

How Does BOTOX Cosmetic Work?

BOTOX Cosmetic injections work by relaxing the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. Planning exactly where to perform the injections requires a careful study of your individual course of facial aging. Dr. Dool will examine your face at your initial consultation and develop an injection plan that responds to your unique facial structure and pattern of wrinkles.

BOTOX Cosmetic requires no anesthesia. Dr. Dool will perform your procedure by injecting botulinum toxin directly into your facial and neck muscles using a tiny needle. You may feel a slight sting during these injections, but in general, discomfort is minimal.

Your procedure will not take long – in many cases, between 15 and 30 minutes. Many patients choose to have this procedure during their lunch hour.

BOTOX Cosmetic Recovery

BOTOX Cosmetic does not require a lengthy recovery. In fact, most patients can resume their normal social and work routines on the day of their procedure. Remember to avoid massaging the treated area in the days following your injections, which can cause the botulinum toxin to spread to areas that do not require treatment.

Your results can last from a few months up to a year or more. Maintaining your results will require additional treatments. However, studies have suggested that repeated BOTOX Cosmetic procedures may slow the progress of wrinkling.

BOTOX Cosmetic Safety & Risks

This wrinkle treatment is extremely safe, and complications are uncommon. Potential side effects include excessive flushing, headaches, and nausea. Some patients may experience temporary drooping at the treatment site. In rare cases, patients have reported impaired facial muscle movement as well as difficulties with breathing, swallowing, or speaking. Patients experiencing these symptoms should contact Dr. Dool or their general healthcare practitioner immediately.

Complementary Procedures to BOTOX Cosmetic

BOTOX Cosmetic treatment is often used to enhance or prolong the results of facial surgical procedures such as a facelift or brow lift. Fillers and volumizers such as JUVEDERM can also work in conjunction with BOTOX Cosmetic to rejuvenate the face.

BOTOX Cosmetic Fees

The price of BOTOX Cosmetic treatments varies depending on the exact location and number of injections each patient requires. In general, this procedure ranges in cost from a few hundred to several thousand dollars.
