BOTOX® is Allergan’s trade name for the protein and neurotoxin Botulinum Toxin-A. The protein is used cosmetically as a muscle-relaxing injection to treat wrinkles. As we age, skin loses its elasticity, and dynamic wrinkles begin to form. Botox is the most effective skin treatment for subtly tackling the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles. It also prevents new lines from forming by relaxing the facial muscles and reducing excessive facial movements. Lines and wrinkles will be smoothed out and you’ll be left with a youthful, glowing appearance. Here at Envy, we offer three different types of neurotoxins which are Letybo, Xeomin, Dysport, and Botox.
Here at Envy Beauty Lab + Laser in Calgary, we also offer Medical Botox for some therapeutic purposes such as TMJ (lockjaw, grinding, and clenching) and Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) in the underarm area and to treat Migraines. While some extended healthcare plans will cover these treatments, not all do. To find out, give your insurance company a call to see what is and what isn’t covered. We treat all patients, regardless of coverage.
All Anti-Wrinkle Injections, as known as Neuromodulators are charged by the unit and on average, most patients will require anywhere from 40-80 units depending on their age, lifestyle, history with treatments, sun exposure and how many areas they would like to treat.
The most common treatment areas we treat are:
- Lip flip (above the lip)
- Brow lift
- Forehead lines (
- Between your eyes (glabella)
- Crow’s feet (around the eyes)
- Top of the nose (bunny lines)
- Necklines (platysmal bands)
- DAO (Depressor Anguli Oris)
Muscle can help prevent a downward pull of the corners of the lip.
This can provide a slight upturn to the lips, giving a more youthful appearance.
- Masseters to contour face and/or help to treat TMJ
- Migraine Treatments
However, Botox is a versatile drug, and here at Envy Beauty Lab + Laser, it can be used for:
• Jaw Reduction – Gives one a softer and more visually pleasing appearance
• TMD Disorder (Bruxism) – This aching ailment causes irritation in the jaw area and often leads to teeth grinding and pain in the jaw area. We can help by using Botox to relax the jaw (masseter) muscles and dramatically reduce the effect of this disorder
• Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis) – Botox is effectively used for excessive sweating by blocking the release of acetylcholine, thus causing sweat glands to stop producing sweat. Injections to the underarm area effectively reduce sweating by up to 90% within two days period, lasting up to 10 months or even longer in some cases
• Migraine Treatments such as headaches. Botox works for migraine headaches because it blocks chemicals called neurotransmitters that carry pain signals from your brain Botox is like a roadblock in that pathway. It stops the chemicals before they get to the nerve endings around your head and neck
