About Botox Cosmetic®
Botox Cosmetic®: FDA-Approved Skin Treatment.
Botox Cosmetic® is the only FDA-approved treatment for skin rejuvenation. It is, however, on the list of Prescription Drugs in Canada and must only be administered by a trained and licensed medical practitioner. As mandated by Health Canada, we do not promote the therapeutic use or benefits of Botox. Individuals who opt for a Botox® treatment in Mississauga may do so of their own choice after consulting a healthcare professional.
How is the Botox Cosmetic® treatment administered?
A prescription medicine, Botox Cosmetic® is injected into the facial muscles. It blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles to prevent them from contracting (and forming age lines) for a short period of time. It is typically used in older adults, however, adults of all ages can be treated.
Although rare when administered by a trained medical doctor, the most commonly known side-effects are some degree of pain, swelling, or bruising at the injection site. You could also have minor flu-like symptoms, headache, and an upset stomach. In rare instances, it may cause mild ptosis or eyelid droop, but this is a temporary condition.
Tell Dr. Solnik if you experience any of these problems after your Botox Cosmetic treatment.

This is especially true when you choose to go in for a Botox® treatment in Mississauga, because it is a prescription drug.
