BOTOX/NUCEIVA

WHAT IS BOTOX/NUCEIVA?

Botox and Nuceiva are brands of a purified protein that temporarily relaxes muscles to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in a more smooth and youthful complexion.

WHAT areas can botox/nuceiva TREAT?

Cosmetically, Botox and Nucieva can freshen your look by softening fine lines on the face, such as frown lines, forehead lines, and crows feet around the eyes. It can also be used to lift eyebrows, treat the “gummy smile”, soften prominent jaw muscles for facial slimming, and much more. Medically, it can be used to treat excessive sweating and it can also help with tension headaches.

how does it work?

Botox and Nuceiva are neuromodulators (a form of botulinum toxin type A) that is injected into specific treatment areas, working by blocking the nerve signals needed for facial muscles to contract. It is administered through an ultra-fine needle of purified protein into the specific muscles that create wrinkles, therefore dramatically reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It prevents the muscle from contracting, so the fine lines and wrinkles will gradually decrease in depth and severity. 

When will i see results? how long do the affects of a treatment last?

The results of Botox/Nuceiva typically can be seen 10-14 days after treatment and can last between 3-4 months from the date of treatment. Over time the body metabolizes the product, which will slowly return muscle movement in the treatment area. Individuals can choose to maintain their Botox/Nuceiva results for longer periods by being consistent and maintaining treatments as per your nurse injector’s recommended treatment schedule. 

at what age should i start getting treatment?

There is no definite or wrong age to start getting Botox treatments. Each individual is different and should receive a consultation by a medical professional prior to their treatment. Many of the younger clients begin to use Botox/Nuceiva as a preventative measure once they start to see fine lines and/or wrinkles beginning to appear. 

IS BOTOX/NUCIEVA SAFE? WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS?

Yes, Botox and Nuceiva are both FDA and Health Canada approved.

Side effects from a Botox treatment may include bruising, swelling, redness, or tenderness around the injection site, all of which will resolve without intervention after a few days to a week. 

As long as the pre and post care instructions are followed by the client and the treatment is properly administered by the injector, the likelihood of adverse effects are minimized. 

HOW MANY UNITS OF BOTOX/NUCEIVA DO I NEED?

The amount of Botox/Nuceiva, and therefore the cost, needed will depend on each individual. Some contributing factors may include the area being treated, the strength of the individual’s muscle(s), the desired result, and how many treatments have been received previously.
