1. Who is your Botox Practitioner?

When you are considering Botox, make sure you are doing research on your clinic and the specific Botox Practitioners who will be working with you. Ideally you would want a certified medical practitioner like a nurse or physician. However, anyone can take a 2-3 day course and become certified as a Botox Injector. If your Botox Injector is not experienced and a medical practitioner, you may want to be careful.

Once you have narrowed down your list of Botox Practitioners or Botox Clinics in Toronto, you would want to meet with the specific Botox Injector that you will be working with for a consultation. Of course you should be looking at reviews and reading their blog / website, but you can’t determine if you have synergy with the practitioner just by doing your online research. You need to meet with them in person. Ask them questions about their qualification, if they have the appropriate insurance, the quality of botox they are using, the results you are looking for and how they have helped others like you in the past. You will be able to gauge how professional they are and if they have the expert knowledge and will to take care of you. You may want to find out if they offer a complimentary follow up service to review the results as well.

When you meet with your practitioner in person, you will also have the opportunity to see if the clinic is a clean medical environment. Even though Botox procedures are not considered “surgical”, you definitely don’t want any contamination risk.

2. Your Current Health

It is very important to discuss your current health condition with your Toronto Botox Clinic or your healthcare professional before doing Botox. Botox is relatively safe if you have a conversation with your trusted healthcare professional about your health condition. Obviously, it would not be safe for you if you have an allergic reaction to botulinum toxin. Speak with your healthcare professional about Botox if you have a weakness in the muscles (especially in the face area), pregnant / breastfeeding, breathing disorder, breathing problems, etc. Your Botox practitioner or healthcare professional will be able to advise you in more detail based on your specific condition(s).

3. Understand the Process & Risk Involved:

When you speak with your Botox practitioner, you will be advised on the process involved with the non-surgical treatment. Therefore, we will explain it on a very high level in this section. Depending on the specific result that you are looking for, the procedure will be slightly different to the explanation below:

Botox or Botulinum Toxin is injected into your muscle(s) through a micro-needle. Depending on the specific result you are looking for, the location of your injection will be different. There will usually be one to three injections per muscle. There should be very minimal discomfort during the injection due to the size of the micro-needle.

Here are some of the risks involved with getting Botox:

4. Results are Aligned with Your Expectations

Hopefully you did enough research and found a good Botox practitioner / Botox clinic to give you an accurate picture of the results that you can expect. Botox can be a bit unpredictable at times, but your practitioner will be able to give you an idea of the final result. When you go back for another Botox session, it would be unreasonable to expect the result to be 100% identical to what you had previously. That is because the injection site, the amount injected and how the body reacts to the injection will be different from the first time.

Make sure you talk to your practitioner about your expectations before proceeding with a Botox injection.

5. Maintenance

It is important to know what Botox is not permanent, so you would have to go back to your Botox Clinic / Practitioner for another session in about 3-months when the effects of Botox wear off. However, the more your specific muscle(s) get exposed to Botox, the longer each exposure to Botox will last. That means that if you are consistently get Botox every three months, you may eventually only need to get Botox every four months instead of three months. If you have a great Botox practitioner or Botox Clinic that you are working with and you know that you will be consistently getting Botox, you should have a conversation with your Botox Clinic / Practitioner about getting a bulk discount if you pay for your Botox procedure ahead of time. You get a discount and your Botox clinic will have a loyal customer.

BONUS: Why Consider Botox:

There are many reasons to consider Botox. It can help with preventing wrinkles, treating wrinkles, excessive sweating, migraines, muscle spasms, bladder and bowel disorders, etc. Among the many uses of Botox, the procedure is fast and most importantly, non-surgical. Many younger women are getting Botox as a preventative procedure for wrinkles. There is virtually no recovery downtime and the results happen relatively fast (48 hours and up to 5 days for some people).

How Much Does Botox Cost in Toronto?

Botox has become more and more affordable over the years. Today, you can get Botox for $10-$17 per unit at any Botox Clinic in Toronto. Make sure you’re not on the lower end of the spectrum, the cost of injection is dependant on the quality of the Botox being injected into your muscle(s) and the qualification of the Botox Practitioner. The price per unit is only one tell-tale sign of a good Botox Clinic in Toronto, ensure you have done your research before proceeding with a Botox practitioner of choice.
