Non surgical alternatives to anti ageing from Dr. Cory Goldberg

Botox injectable treatments can help soften facial wrinkles caused by laughing, smiling, or frowning. Botox Cosmetic treatments quickly and safely deactivate the nerves that cause muscles to contract, thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

Every year in North America millions of women and men choose Botox as a safe and effective non-surgical alternative to minimize the early signs of ageing.

 

What is a Botox Cosmetic Treatment?

Botox Cosmetic, a prescription medicine, helps adults smooth the appearance of facial wrinkles. After Botox is precisely injected into the “dynamic” facial muscles, it blocks nerve impulses that cause those muscles to contract and form noticeable creases.

What are the benefits of Botox?

We all know that feeling satisfied with our appearance can boost our self-confidence. If your facial wrinkles prevent you from feeling your best, Botox might be right for you. You’ll see immediate results after just one treatment, and Botox will help not only reduce the appearance of wrinkles you’ve already developed, but also prevent them from worsening.

Adult women and men choose Botox to minimize crow’s feet, frown lines, smoker’s lines, eyebrow or nose furrows, horizontal forehead lines, or chin creases. Botox treatments also offer these benefits:

  • Short office procedure requires no anesthesia and no recovery time.
  • Visible improvements appear in just days and continue for up to a month.
  • Results last 3 to 6 months.

How do Botox injections work?

Dr. Goldberg administers Botox in his state-of-the-art medical facility conveniently located on the west end of Toronto. After reviewing your facial muscles, Dr. Goldberg will determine specific injection sites. Because the treatment requires no anesthesia, you will feel very little pain following each tiny injection. The procedure takes approximately 10 minutes, and the results typically last 3 to 6 months.

Botox recovery

Following the procedure, you may experience minimal localized pain, inflammation, or swelling, which you may treat with a cold compress or simply let subside within minutes. You can expect to be in and out of the office promptly, with no downtime, so you can resume your normal activities and skincare routine immediately.

Botox safety & risks

Botox has an impressive safety record, with millions of patients having experienced its benefits. On extremely rare occasions, muscles near the injection site are immobilized. This effect is only temporary and will gradually return to normal.

Procedures to complement Botox

If you are interested in finding additional non-surgical procedures to rejuvenate your appearance, Dr. Goldberg can create a specific plan for you, combining treatments such as dermal fillers, microdermabrasion, or laser procedures to help you achieve optimal results.

Dr. Goldberg also provides Botox for  non-cosmetic uses, including:

  • excessive underarm sweating
  • severe neck muscle spasms
  • eye misalignment
  • eyelid muscle spasms
  • chronic migraine headaches

If you would like to explore the option of using Botox to treat any of these concerns, notify Dr. Goldberg during your consultation.

The entire treatment takes only 10 to 20 minutes, with no recovery time, and lasts 3 to 6 months.

If you’re concerned that facial wrinkles make you look older than you feel, Dysport® treatments might be right for you.  To learn more, call Dr. Cory Goldberg’s office today to request a consultation.

Dysport versus Botox?

Dypsort and Botox are the same but different- like comparing Coke to Pepsi.  Both are the same product Botulinum Toxin A, a derived protein that works by relaxing targeted muscles. While Botox is a better known brand in North America, Dysport has been the preferred neuromodulator in Europe and South America for years. It was approved by the FDA in the 2009 and Health Canada in 2013. Dysport was launched in Canada by Medicis, the makers of Restylane and Perlane.

The Dysport protein is slightly smaller so it works faster.  Studies also show it lasting at least 4 months, has a wider spread than Botox and is less expensive.  In some reports, patients also believe it offers a smoother result.  Dysport is an equivalent if not better product.

The differences we’ve experienced support the results reported in literature. It’s great to have another option for our patients.  We now offer it almost exclusively as our clients love the quicker, longer lasting results at a better price.
