botox- what

What is BOTOX?

BOTOX Cosmetic is a highly popular cosmetic procedure that doctors have been using for many years to treat a range of issues, including wrinkles and facial lines. There are also a number of medical reasons that people receive BOTOX treatments, which could be right for you. BOTOX blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can’t contract. That makes wrinkles relax and soften.

Wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX might be the treatment you have been looking for to alleviate your concerns about aging, and you can also talk to one of our expert providers about how they might benefit you medically.

What are the benefits of BOTOX Cosmetic?

Most people are familiar with the aesthetic benefits of BOTOX, including: 

  • Reduce fine lines
  • Smooth out wrinkles
  • Restore youthful look
  • Reduce overall signs of aging on your face
  • Reduce crow’s feet (wrinkles around the eyes)

There may be other ways that BOTOX can benefit you and alleviate your skin, health, or body issues. Our specialists will give you all the information you need during a consultation about this treatment.

Who are the best candidates for BOTOX Cosmetic?

For anyone looking to reverse the signs of aging without opting for surgical treatment, BOTOX in Ottawa is arguably the most common method. Botox is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure which can soften lines in the forehead, frown lines and crows’ feet. Full results can be seen 2 weeks after your treatment. For any cosmetic procedure, it is important to learn all the information so that you can make an informed decision. Call our clinic today and talk to one of our providers for a consultation before you take the first step.



First steps of a BOTOX®

What’s the first step?

The first step to getting BOTOX in Ottawa is to book a consultation with one of our providers at Ottawa Plastic Surgery. You can call us directly or request an appointment through our website. Our patient coordinators are ready to help you and get you started on your journey. By scheduling a consultation, you will meet with one of our surgeons, learn more about what BOTOX involves, and decide whether this is the right procedure for you. 

If you choose to move forward with the treatment, we will be able to administer your injection immediately after your consultation.

What to expect on the day of BOTOX Cosmetic treatment

On the day of your BOTOX treatment, your assigned provider will walk you through the procedure and the techniques they will be using. 

First, a numbing agent such as a topical numbing cream will be applied to your skin, to ensure there is no pain from the needle itself. Some people get anxious about needles and we will work to make you feel comfortable. 

Next, your provider will administer the BOTOX Cosmetic injections in the areas that have been mapped out and specified by your provider during your consultation. The procedure itself is quick and non-invasive. The BOTOX treatment can be as short as 20 minutes, but the exact time will depend on the areas being treated on the day of your appointment. 

Once the provider has completed injecting the focus areas, they will clean your skin, and allow you to take a look at their work so you can approve it. If you are happy with what you see, the treatment is complete and you will be free to go about your day as normal.

BOTOX Cosmetic recovery

There is no downtime or extensive recovery needed after getting a BOTOX cosmetic treatment. Your provider will give you instructions not to rub or massage the areas injected, to allow time for the botox to set in. Rubbing the skin too hard after getting BOTOX may cause the botulinum toxin to migrate to other areas of the face. 

You may experience some soreness after the treatment, which will fade quite quickly if you take care to relax after the procedure. By following the post-procedure instructions from our providers, you can ensure great results in no time at all!



While women do make up the majority of cosmetic procedures, including BOTOX treatment, “Brotox” for men is becoming mainstream with the male population. When it comes to BOTOX for adult men, this solution is most commonly used to reduce facial wrinkles. In addition, BOTOX can be used to treat other health conditions, like lazy eyes, neck spasms, and excessive sweating. For men, the most common injection site areas for BOTOX include:

  • In the corner of my eyes to prevent crow’s feet
  • Between the eyebrows to target frown lines
  • In the forehead to reduce lines and creases
  • Around the mouth to reduce laugh lines
  • Botox for men’s eye bags to reduce puffy or sunken eyes

Typically, the number of BOTOX units for men is higher than that of women to achieve the same result. This is due to the fact that the tissue in the face of men is typically heavier, so the muscles in their faces are stronger. As a result of these strong muscles, lines can become deeper and more pronounced, requiring more units of BOTOX Cosmetic to treat them.


How much does BOTOX Cosmetic cost in Ottawa?

The cost of BOTOX Cosmetic in Ottawa can vary, but is most importantly influenced by the number of units you require. Each patient’s skin is different and requires an individual assessment, which is why we require a consultation before going ahead with the treatment. During the consultation, your provider will discuss in depth your desired outcome, and the areas you are looking to focus on to give a more accurate price point.
