Botox in Winnipeg, MB

Botox is the most popular aesthetic treatment in the world that works to prevent and smooth facial lines and wrinkles. Botox injections can also lift your eyebrows to help you look well-rested, refreshed, and years younger. You can dramatically improve the appearance of your skin with Botox treatments over time. Some of the most common areas treated with Botox include crow’s feet, frown lines in between the eyes, forehead wrinkles, eyebrows, and jawline.

An expert nurse injector or a board certified plastic surgeon will perform your Botox injections in a private treatment room at the award-winning First Glance Aesthetic Clinic & Surgery Centre located in Winnipeg, MB.

  • Crow’s feet (wrinkles on the sides of the eyes)
  • Forehead Lines and Wrinkles
  • Frown Lines (in between the eyes)
  • Eyebrow (brow lift)
  • Lip Lines
  • Bunny Lines (around the nose)
  • Jaw Muscle (for facial slimming)

How Does Botox Work?

Lines and wrinkles on the face are caused by facial expressions and muscle contractions that repeatedly crease the skin. Common facial expressions that cause wrinkling include frowning and squinting.

Botox is a clean protein that works by blocking nerve impulses in the injected muscles to reduce muscle activity. As a result, this weakens and relaxes the muscles, preventing them from contracting, so they no longer crease your skin.

As your skin cells renew and regenerate, your skin will gradually soften and smooth out over time.

Maintaining your touch-up treatments is key (the effects of Botox injections are temporary). Refresher appointments are typically set for every 3 to 4 months.

What Can I Expect During My Botox Treatment?

On the day of your treatment, your expert injector will meet you in a private treatment room to discuss your aesthetic goals in detail. After a full assessment of your facial anatomy, expression lines and wrinkles, your injector will determine the proper dosage of Botox for your treatment. Before your injections begin, your skin will be cleansed at the injection sites to remove any makeup or oil from the surface of your skin (very important). If you can, please come to your appointment without makeup on. Now that your skin is clean, your injector is ready to introduce Botox injections with an ultra-fine needle (which may feel like a light pinch). Botox appointments typically last 10 to 30 minutes. As soon as your appointment is over, you can reapply your makeup and get back to your daily activities. There is no downtime with Botox.

Popular same-day treatments with Botox include Lip Filler, Cheek Filler, Under Eye Filler, and Jawline Slimming with Botox.

Things To Know Before Your Botox Injections

We want you to achieve amazing results and love your smooth and revitalized skin. Here’s some important information about Botox to help you along the way.

Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding cannot get Botox treatments.

To minimize bruising, please avoid alcohol for at least 48 hours before your injections. To improve the longevity of your treatment, we recommend that you refrain from gym workouts for 48 hours and avoid excessive heat (saunas, hot yoga) for 1 week after your treatment.

After your injections, you may feel slight discomfort and be tempted to rub or massage the injection sites; this is to be avoided. Your skin needs to settle and heal without irritation. The typical time to recover after Botox is approximately 2 to 4 hours. Although it may be tempting to take a nap during that time, it’s best to avoid lying down or putting pressure on your face.

For optimal results, we recommend that you follow these guidelines so you can reduce the risk of bruising.
