What to Know Before Getting Botox and Filler Injectables in Toronto

Are you one of the many individuals considering lip fillers, facial fillers or a Botox®  brow lift in Toronto? Injectables are quickly becoming a more widely recognized treatment as part of wellness and self-care. These cosmetic services can work wonders for your physical and emotional well-being, but before getting started, it’s important to debunk the myths behind this popular procedure. We’re breaking down everything you need to know before booking a consultation 

All too often, cosmetic treatments are painted in a negative light. Injectables are no exception when it comes to myths and misconceptions. We’re breaking down the most common myths about injectables and other aesthetic procedures.

  1. What sort of results can I expect from injectables? 

Neuromodulators ( Botox®, Dysport® Xeomin® ) and dermal fillers offer instant results, but the degree of impact comes down to the amount used during each treatment, guided by each client’s individual needs and desires. Nurse Chantal Ward, RN a Cosmetic Nurse Injector with Clarity Medspa in Toronto, shared her approach for ensuring patients get the result they want: “Communication is key to  developing an open and honest dialogue with my patients. What one person thinks is natural may not be aligned with the aesthetic of another. Having my patient point out what concerns them, along with what they would like to see as an end result is an important part of the process.” 

With a deep understanding of our patient’s desires, we use our 25+ years of expertise to determine the number of syringes required to reach those results. Advanced and ongoing training related to new injectable products and techniques ensures satisfaction and patient safety.

  1. How soon do you see results from injectables? 

Injectable services are popular for a variety of reasons. They offer immediate results, provide clients with the ability to see their results before proceeding, and they’re perfect for regaining confidence while also feeling great. However, injectables are not recommended as an all-in-one treatment. Yes, these quick treatments can give you instant results, but there are other treatment options such as Ultherapy, Coolsculpting, MicroNeedling and skin care services. Injections can be a fantastic option when paired with other methods, keeping your skin fresh and glowing!

 When it comes to Botox®, dermal and lip fillers, we want you to feel confident with the process. We’ll walk you through the process, answer your questions and help you get great results with the least amount of discomfort.

  1. How long do results from injectables last? 

All injectables have different effects and can last from a few months to years; hence,  it’s important to think beyond the immediate results observed at the time of your appointment. Instead, think about the longevity of results and how long the results from the treatment lasts. That way, you’ll always know how long it will be until the next appointment with your aesthetician or dermatologist

  1. Are injectables such as Botox and Fillers safe? 

There are a number of potential risks when treating the skin, but with good pre- and post-care, many potential complications can be avoided. Nurse Nurse Chantal stresses the importance of seeking reputable medical aesthetic clinics, with good reviews along with having a full consultation with a licensed practitioner. Additionally, find someone that is easy to talk to and “gets you”.  Meeting with a professional for an intake appointment to understand the pre- and post-care will help minimize the chances of side effects.
