What is Botox Injectable?
Botox injectable is a purified non-animal protein that relaxes selected animation muscles and significantly improves the appearance of moderate-to-severe wrinkle lines and furrows. When applied to facial muscles, it induces a temporary relaxation of the muscles, softening unattractive animation lines and revitalizing a pulled-down appearance.
The treatment is suited for patients with unattractive animation lines and wrinkles. The most commonly targeted areas are between the frown lines, crow’s feet around the sides of the eyes, and the worry lines which occur horizontally across the forehead.
The Botox Injectable treatment takes about 15 – 30 minutes to perform, and most patients return to work immediately after with little discoloration and only slight bruising.
How Long Does Botox Injectable Last?
The results of a single Botox injectable lasts between 3 to 6 months; therefore, patients generally return to SpaMedica for repeat treatments 2 or 3 times per year.

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 a smaller, more delicate areas.
Botox Injectable Pricing Factors
Determining the Cost of Botox Injectable in Toronto
The following Botox Injectable dosage guidelines are an estimate based on the units required for an average female. Male patients will typically require a higher dosage for satisfactory results as their animation muscles are generally larger.
The number of units for your specific needs will be discussed during your initial consultation, but these figures should act as a general guide.
- Frown Lines 20- 30 units
- Crows feet 20-30 units
- Forehead Worry Lines 8-10 units
- Lip lines 2-4 units
To determine the cost of your Botox Injectable treatment, multiply the number of units by the unit price. For example, a total of 10 units would cost $100 at $10 per unit.
Botox Injectable Versus Dermal Fillers
Botox Injectable and dermal fillers like Juvederm, Sculptra, and Revanesse, are non-invasive cosmetic procedures that reduce the appearance of wrinkles and restore a youthful appearance.
Botox Injectable treat lines and wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that cause the underlying dynamic wrinkles – wrinkles that appear from facial expressions like smiling or frowning. Conversely, dermal fillers use sugar gel that occupies space to target static wrinkles – lines, folds and facial shape.
