A Video Showing Botox Injection At Our Clinic

Watch a video of Dr. Alhallak skillfully injecting Botox at the Albany Cosmetic and Laser Centre in Edmonton. Before the procedure begins, the patient’s skin is thoroughly cleaned to minimize any risk of infection. With expert precision, he injects into the marked areas, targeting the muscles responsible for the forehead wrinkles and frown lines.

Why Do We Get Wrinkles and Lines?

Let’s discuss the reasons behind the formation of wrinkles and facial lines. The skin on our upper face is relatively thin with minimal fat underneath. Additionally, we constantly use the muscles in this area to express emotions, whether it’s smiling, frowning, or showing surprise. This repetitive movement causes our skin to fold in the same spots repeatedly. Over time, as our skin endures these folds, it begins to display these unwanted lines.

There are two primary types of facial wrinkles:

  1. Dynamic wrinkles: These lines appear only during specific facial expressions. For instance, when someone frowns or is angry, lines might form between their eyebrows. However, once the expression is relaxed, these lines disappear.
  2. Static wrinkles: Over time, with repeated muscle movements and the natural aging process, some lines become permanent. This is because our skin loses its elasticity as we age, leading to lines that remain visible even when our facial muscles are at rest.

That’s where Botox and Dysport come in handy. It can help treat both kinds of lines, making our skin look smoother.

How Does Botox Reduce and Prevent Lines?

The treatment works by relaxing specific muscles in our face. It does this by intercepting the signals from our nerves that tell these muscles to contract. When these muscles are more relaxed and move less, our skin doesn’t crease as frequently. As a result, our skin can rejuvenate, leading to reduced lines and wrinkles. In simpler terms, Botox gives our skin a break by minimizing certain facial movements, allowing it to recover and lessen the appearance of lines.

Key Muscles Targeted by Botox in the Upper Face

For the upper face, there are three essential muscles that play significant roles in our facial expressions. Think of them as star players on a football team, essential to determining our facial contours. These muscles are the Frontalis (Forehead), Glabellar (11 lines), and Orbicularis Oculi (Crow’s feet), as shown in the infographic below.

Benefits of Cosmetic Botox Injections

When discussing cosmetic treatments, our main goal is to address specific wrinkles and facial lines. Let’s break it down:

  1. Dynamic Lines: Imagine the wrinkles that appear when you raise your eyebrows, frown, or smile. These “dynamic lines” surface with facial movements.
  2. Static Lines: Some lines, like old friends, have been with you for a long time. These deep-set “static lines” are more stubborn. While Botox can help, they might require an other treatments such as fillers and laser.
  3. Other Indications: Beyond just addressing wrinkles and lines, Botox has a variety of other cosmetic applications. For instance, the “lip flip” gives the lips a subtly fuller appearance by relaxing certain lip muscles. Moreover, known as the “Nefertiti neck lift,” utilizes Botox injections to improve the appearance of the neck and jawline.

In the field of cosmetic treatments, it’s all about selecting the right technique to achieve the desired look and create Younger Version of You.

What to Expect From Cosmetic Injections?

After Botox injection, the effects aren’t immediate. Muscles begin to relax over about three days, reaching maximum relaxation by two weeks, which softens these lines. Most patients notice the most significant difference around the four-week mark.

For very deep and old wrinkles, Botox might be less effective, and static lines may necessitate more than one session. In these cases, we might suggest other treatments, such as dermal fillers, lasers, or microneedling.

Wondering about the outcome of Botox treatments? At Albany Cosmetic and Laser Centre, our guiding principle is to enhance without overshadowing. Expect a smoother, revitalized complexion where lines have softened, but your facial expressions remain true to you. Our goal is a refreshed, natural appearance, without the “frozen” look.

Considering The Safety And Risks Of Botox

Undergoing cosmetic Botox injections is widely regarded as a safe procedure, but like all treatments, it comes with its own set of common side effects, though they are typically minor and confined to the injection area. Clients might experience some temporary redness or swelling at the injection site, and minor bruising which usually fades within a week. Some individuals might encounter a short-lived headache that dissipates within 24 to 48 hours, while others might note temporary muscle weakness in the treated area.

On rare occasions, eyelid drooping can occur if the medication affects nearby muscles, though this is typically temporary and resolves on its own. Additionally, mild pain or discomfort at the injection site is not uncommon but typically resolves swiftly. During your thorough consultation at Albany Cosmetic and Laser Clinic, we will delve into these potential risks, discuss any possible allergic reactions, and answer all your queries. You can rest assured that you’re in expert hands with us.
