What is Botox?
Botox is an FDA and Health Canada-approved purified non-animal protein that relaxes selected animation muscles. The most commonly targeted areas are between the frown lines, crow’s feet around the sides of the eyes, and worry lines on the forehead.
Botox injectable treatments take 15 – 30 minutes, and most patients return to work immediately after the procedure. Botox may cause muscle spasms, but this is a rare side effect.
How Long Does Botox Last For?
The results of a single Botox injectable last between 3 to 6 months.

Alternatively, Dr. Malika Ladha’s personally trained and experienced injection nurses cost between $8.99 and $12.00 per unit injected.
What is a Botox Unit?
Just like “mg” measures medication and “ml” measures liquids, “units” measure the strength and amount of Botox Injectable.
One unit of Botox is the amount required to attain a specific level of muscle relaxation. The more units used, the greater the degree of muscle relaxation. Larger animation muscles require more units than smaller, more delicate areas.
Botox Injectable Pricing Factors
Determining the Cost of Botox Injectable in Toronto
The number of units for your specific needs will be discussed during your initial consultation, but these figures should be used as a general guide.
- Frown Lines: 20- 30 units
- Crows feet: 20-30 units
- Forehead Worry Lines: 8-10 units

To determine the cost of your Botox Injectable treatment, multiply the number of units by the unit price. For example, 10 units would cost $100 at $10 per unit.

Botox Injectable and dermal fillers like Juvederm, Sculptra, and Revanesse are non-invasive cosmetic procedures that use different ingredients but often offer the same results. Talk to Dr. Malika Ladha and her team to determine which injectable option is best for you.
