Botox Injections in Brampton
Botox Cosmetic® has been approved in Canada for cosmetic use for many years. It has become the most common non-surgical cosmetic treatment in North America.
All assessments and botox treatments are directly carried out by a medical doctor with over 20-years of comprehensive experience, ensuring that only the highest level of care is given to our clients.
Botox Cosmetic® is an excellent method of wrinkle prevention. As years go by of active facial movements, the dynamic lines gradually become permanently etched in our skin, creating static lines that appear even at rest. These lines are generally more difficult to treat once formed. With regular Botox Cosmetic® treatments, you can prevent these lines, maintaining smoother and youthful appearing skin.
Is Botox Right for me?
WHAT IS BOTOX COSMETIC ®? IS IT SAFE?

When used in the appropriate setting by a knowledgeable and experienced physician, Botox Cosmetic® is very safe and effective, allowing patients to have a refreshed, rejuvenated and youthful appearance.
WILL MY FACE STILL HAVE EXPRESSION?
The purpose of Botox Cosmetic® is to enhance the way you look, not change it. When administered by an experienced physician, you can still smile, frown and be expressive. An excellent feature about Botox Cosmetic ® is that there is flexibility that allows the treatment to be customized according to your preferences; Dosing of the treatments can be adjusted for those who are looking for an absolutely smooth forehead with limited expression, or a “Botox lite” approach that softens lines and creases but still allows for natural expression.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING THE CONSULTATION AND TREATMENT?
During the consultation a medical doctor takes the time to educate clients on Botox Cosmetic ® and answers any questions. After reviewing your past medical history, she ensures there are no contraindications to treatment. During the facial analysis, Dr. Gupta observes patients carefully to assess their anatomy and see how the facial muscles are used. The consultation is always very collaborative, as Dr. Gupta always wants to hear from her clients regarding their treatment goals. The actual procedure itself is quick, and usually takes no more than 15 minutes. A tiny amount of Botox Cosmetic ® is injected precisely into the muscle being treated. A very fine needle is used so that pain is minimal. There is no down time after the procedure, and many of my clients go right back to work afterwards!
Is Botox Regulated?
Botox Cosmetic® is a prescription drug that is regulated by Health Canada and patients must be seen by a physician prior to receiving Botox treatments. It is essential that the physician thoroughly understands the anatomy and interaction of various muscles on the face in order to ensure optimal results. It is also important to fully assess each client’s own individual facial features and listen to each client’s desires and expectation. Each client is unique and treatments should be customized, which requires an experienced injector.
