Where to Get Botox in Toronto

 
With Botox in high demand, it’s relatively easy to find someone in Toronto to administer it for you. Your family doctor might be able to do it. Spa technicians sometimes do it. Even one of the estheticians at your local beauty salon may offer Botox treatments. But think carefully before you select a Botox provider. While the treatments are very safe and side effects are rare, you do want your Botox therapy to have the desired results. There are guidelines for the number of units of Botox necessary for each area of the face, but applying the guidelines requires someone both skilled and experienced at gauging the dosage. In addition, the placement of the product is critical to its optimal performance. It’s acknowledged that there is an art to Botox therapy that not just anyone can master.
 
And if there is any doubt about that last point, all we have to do is turn on the television: we’ve all seen the results of bad Botox treatments. The reality-show personality with the completely frozen look, or the society matron who looks as though she may have had a stroke, for example. There’s even a name for Botox treatments gone wrong: known as "Spocking,” after the character Mr. Spock on the television show Star Trek. This is a colloquial term to describe the look that happens when too little Botox is used on the lateral portion on the forehead, as it causes extreme arching of the brow. A less obvious bad Botox treatment is one where the placement of the product didn’t allow it to do its work effectively, and few results were achieved.
 

How it Works

 
Botox inhibits the muscles that pull our skin into repeated patterns and cause wrinkles. Think of squinting to see the blackboard when you were a child. If you are near-sighted, it’s likely you did that for many months before someone realized that you needed glasses. In later years, this might have extended to squinting to see the road while driving through a rainstorm, or trying to watch the puck from a high bleacher at a hockey game. Chances are that by the time you reach middle age, two deep lines will have formed between your eyebrows due to repeated squinting and scowling in order to see.
 
While Botox probably won’t make those lines vanish, an injection into that area (known as the glabellar region) can inhibit the squinting action long enough for it to make a difference to the skin there. Lines and wrinkles are softened by Botox treatments, and most times rendered invisible.
 

Specialized Clinics

 
That’s why it’s important to choose carefully when you are seeking out someone to perform Botox treatments. And the best option in Toronto is the clinic that specializes in injectable facial procedures. The professionals who work at these types of clinics focus entirely on Botox, dermal fillers, and other injectable beauty therapies. This means that they do hundreds of procedures each month, giving them far more experience than anyone who performs only occasional Botox treatments could possibly have; they have knowledge, experience, and expertise that others can’t match. And, in better clinics, personnel are also doctors or nurses with credible medical training.
 
The atmosphere in the clinic may be hip or funky, but the procedures themselves should adhere to standard medical protocols, with safety and cleanliness paramount.
