What is Botox Injectable?

Botox Injectable is a purified non-animal protein derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.  When expertly injected into selected face and neck muscles, it can induce a temporary relaxation of the muscle, which may help soften unattractive animation lines and may minimize the depressive or “pulled-down” effect of some strong muscles that can negatively affect the vertical position of soft tissue of the brow, cheek and jowl line.

Botox Injectable must be administered by a healthcare professional.  There is minimal discomfort with this non-surgical procedure.  Your SpaMedica in-office Botox injectable treatment program can be complemented with a number of other non-invasive treatments such as photo rejuvenation Photofacials, fractional resurfacing, non-ablative Radiofrequency tightening and soft tissue fillers and soft tissue dermal fillers to augment and accentuate the results achieved with Botox injectable.

What is Botox made of?

What is Botox Injectable made of?

Figure 2.  Botox Injectable is a simple protein, manufactured naturally by bacteria (similar to penicillin coming from a mold).. The protein sterilized and lyophilized and then reconstituted, again in a sterile fashion by your physician or professional. The protein is made up of two peptides, held together by a disulfide bond. When administered near a selected muscle, the Botox Injectable makes its way to the selected muscle and is absorbed into the nerve that directly results in contraction of that muscle, where it will produce temporary, very localized blockade of muscle contraction function. This blockade is temporary and after several months the body has enzymes that break the Botox Injectable in its harmless, naturally occurring peptide components.

Who is a candidate for Botox Injectable?

Individuals with dynamic expression lines that they find unattractive are excellent candidates for Botox Injectable. The use of very small amounts of Botox Injectable into undesirable animation lines and the muscles underneath them can soften the lines, affecting positively what kind of impression and expression that you project externally and soft tissue smoothening of the skin can occur.  Depending on the muscles that are injected, the muscles that pull down various areas of the face can be relaxed, allowing the elevator muscles to work without competition and provide a tonic elevation of the brow, cheek, jowl line and neck.  It can also be used to modify sweating under the arms and is frequently used to reduce sweating in the armpit region, palms of the hands, soles of the feet and hairline region.

Botox Injectable Toronto Treats Lines and Wrinkles

Figure 3.  There are lines of animation that Botox Injectable can soften, resulting in smoothen of the overlying wrinkle, crevice or crease. Toronto patients who seek out Dr. Mulholland, do so for his reputation and skill in administering Botox Injectable as well as combining this with other non surgical procedures such as soft tissue fillers, dermal fillers (juvederm voluma, restylane, radiesse, sculptra) and lasers to produce a non-surgical facelift effect.

What happens during a Botox Injectable treatment?

Following a thorough history and physical examination, Dr. Mulholland or one of his SpaMedica Botox injectable professionals will discuss the areas of concern with you.  The undesirable facial muscles affecting overlying wrinkle patterns will be treated.  Generally, the treatment lasts just a few minutes.  There is very little discomfort and, in most circumstances, there is little to minimal bruising and the patient can apply makeup immediately afterwards and return to regular activities. Exercise, rubbing the treated areas, coughing or bending over should be avoided for 3 hours, after which time any activity can be resumed.

A very small needle is used to insert the Botox Injectable, the kind of small needle that would be used to administer insulin to diabetic patients.  Topical anaesthetic cream and other techniques such as ice or topical air chillers can be used to reduce the minimal amount of discomfort associated with Botox Injectable use.

Figure 4. Botox Injectable is administered with a very tiny insulin syringe. Topical anesthetic cream and a topical chiller or ice can render the treatment almost painless. There is no post-treatment pain following the procedure.  Most patients can return to activities of daily living immediately.

How long does Botox Injectable take to work?

Once it is administered, it takes approximately three hours to get down to the underlying intended muscles, where it will begin to work its way painlessly into the motor nerve end plate responsible for contraction of that localized, targeted muscle.  Botox Injectable blocks release of a small chemical from the nerve end plate serving the targeted and intended muscle of treatment. This chemical is called acetylcholine, which is necessary for the muscle to contract once you consciously or subconsciously desire to activate the muscle.  It takes three hours to bind to its specific receptors on the muscle and you start to see weakening of the expressive ability of that muscle after three days. The full effect of the Botox Injectable Injection occurs up to six days and most patients begin to see a very significant softening and smoothing of their undesirable lines and wrinkles and significant elevation of the overlying soft tissue.

Botox Injectable entering the nerves

Figure 5.  It enters the motor nerve that stimulates the contraction of the targeted muscle. Once inside the nerve cell ending it prevents release of acetylcholine, the chemical needed to induce muscle contraction.

Is there any aftercare treatment required following Botox Injectable?

Botox Injectable requires no specific after-care.  Post-treatment instructions include no rubbing the injected area, exercise, coughing, straining or lying down for the first three hours.  After the initial three hours, patients can then engage in any physical activity and can rub the area without fear or concern.

How long does Botox Injectable last?

Generally, significant wrinkle smoothening and reduction will last for three to four months.  Most Botox Injectable begins to wear off by the 4th or 5th month. Patients generally return to Dr. Mulholland and SpaMedica for a repeat treatment between 4 and 6 months, or 2-3 times per year.  Lower concentrations will have less longevity.  Some areas, such as Botox Injectable for the softening of upper lip lines and other delicate regions of facial animation, may require smaller injections of Botox Injectable treatment more frequently, such as every two to three months.

Botox Injection Sites: What specific areas of the face and neck can be treated with Botox Injectable?

Virtually any animated muscle that causes an unattractive line or wrinkle or pulls down areas of the face such as lip lines, cheek, jowl, neck, and even chest lines can be treated with Botox Injectable. The most common areas for treatment are the forehead glabellar area, crow’s feet around the sides of the eyes and the worry lines horizontally across the forehead.  These are the three areas where Botox injectable is Health Canada-approved for treatment for the management of lines and wrinkles.

Botox Injection Sites and Facial Muscles

Figure 6.  There are many muscles of facial expression. Patients rely on Dr. Mulholland and his injection team to expertly find the facial animations and muscles that can be treated safely and effectively to produce a more youthful, smoother and potentially elevated facial appearance

Off-label applications for Botox Injectable include the muscles that pull down the corner of the mouth, called the depressor angularis oris; the orbicularis oris or circular muscle around the lips, which causes smoker’s lines; the depressor septi nasi muscle, which pulls down the tip of the nose, as well as the orbicularis oculi, under-the-eye muscle, that leads to crepiness under the eye. In addition, it can be administration to the plastysma neck muscles can weaken necklace lines and tense neck cords.

Can Botox Injectable be used for other structures or effects other than muscle?

Botox Injectable can be used to shrink the very large chewing muscles called the Masseter at the back of the jaw, which, when enlarged can give a very square look to the face, especially in Hispanic or Asian patients.  It can also be used to turn off glandular secretions and, as such, can shrink enlarged parotid and submandibular glands when they are visible following neck lift or neck repositioning surgery.  Botox Injectable is also used for excessive sweating syndromes such as axillary, or armpit, hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, sweating of the palm or excessive sweating of the hairline.

It has been used successfully in the neck to soften the necklace lines and to reduce neck cords when they are strong and visible.

Who can perform Botox injectables?

Dr. Mulholland is one of Canada’s foremost Botox Injectable experts.  He has lectured physicians from around the world and teaches advanced Botox Injectable techniques to physicians over 40 weekends per year (See Dr. Mulholland’s CV). Dr. Mulholland has been seen on national television, local television and magazine articles discussing various treatment options for Botox Injectable.  In addition to Toronto plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen Mulholland performing Botox Injectable treatments, he has trained five SpaMedica injection nurses, many of whom have injected for over a decade under his guidance and tutelage.  All Dr. Mulholland’s injection nurses are certified personally by himself in basic and advanced techniques of Botox® Injectable treatment.  Dr. Mulholland and his practice specifically uses Botox Injectable to shape facial muscles to uncouple the elevators from strong depressive effects of muscles that pull down the brow, cheek or neck.  In addition, he will use Botox Injectable to amplify and enhance other treatments such as fractional laser resurfacing, fractional radiofrequency energy and soft tissue filler treatments, such as a Volumalift ® and Softlift®. As well, for those patients who are looking to treat smoker’s lines, Botox Injectable could be a great option as a treatment. It is very common for Dr. Mulholland to use Botox Injectable in this combination fashion to achieve significant rejuvenation capability.

How much is Botox Injectable?

SpaMedica Botox Injectable Nurses Prices

In general, treatments are charged by the unit. SpaMedica injectable nursing prices for Botox Injectable will be anywhere from $8.00 to $12.00 per unit, depending upon the number of units injected and any client specials or promotions.

Dr. Mulholland’s Botox Injectable Cost 

Dr. Mulholland uses Botox Injectable to help patients elevate the brows, corners of the mouth, cheeks and jawline and it is very common for Dr. Mulholland to use between 60 and 90 units of Botox injectable during your treatment program.  Dr. Mulholland’s pricing starts at $18.00 per unit for the first 60 units, then drops significantly for any units over 60 units.  Most patients pay approximately $1,500 for Botox Injectable with Dr. Mulholland to shape their brow, cheeks, neck and face and it is usually used in combination with soft tissue fillers such as a Volumalift, using Juvederm Voluma and Restylane soft tissue injectable procedures and fractional resurfacing and colour correction techniques.

If your goal is to achieve overall facial rejuvenation, facial shaping, natural anti-aging and non-surgical treatments, then Botox injectable, soft tissue fillers and laser fractional treatments with Dr. Mulholland would be your best opportunity.  Dr. Mulholland performs all his injections on his Injection Fridays and can commonly provide a 5-7 year younger appearance with his combination non-surgical programs and Volumalift, Soft Lift, Botox Injectable and laser treatments.

What are Botox Injectable nurses?

Dr. Mulholland has also trained five SpaMedica injection nurses personally.  The SpaMedica nurses are Botox Injectable experts and focus on smaller amounts of Botox Injectable for reduction of lines, wrinkles and unattractive animation areas.  At SpaMedica, nurses routinely inject 30 to 60 units of Botox Injectable. The price per unit starts at $12.00 per unit and is reduced as more is administered.

SpaMedica treatment professionals charge by the unit used.  This way, we can ensure you receive the least amount of Botox injectable to produce the best possible treatment for your aesthetic concerns at a reasonable price.  During your consultation, the SpaMedica treatment professional and/or Dr. Stephen Mulholland will discuss the amount of units required that will provide you with the outcome you are looking for.  You will be given an on-the-spot quote of what the cost would be for your treatment.

Are there any risks, side effects and complications associated with Botox Injectable?

All medical procedures have some degree of risk and there may be complications. But fortunately, in qualified hands, with the experience and expertise, these complications are often very rare.  The most common Botox Injectable side effect and complication is bruising, so a delicate technique, as perfected by Toronto plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen Mulholland and his SpaMedica injection team, will minimize this risk.  Other undesirable side effects and complications include dispersion or travel of the product beyond its intended region to affect adjacent or nearby muscles negatively.  This is most common above the eyebrow, with dispersion of the Botox Injectable over the eyebrow bone and weakening the eyelid elevator muscle.  This weakening of the eyelid elevation muscle results in a drooping of the upper eyelid, a phenomenon called levator aponeurosis ptosis.  The “droopy eye” may last for two to six months, but the effects can be softened somewhat with topical eye drops.  Fortunately, this droopy eyelid side effect or complication is very rare when performed by an expert with lots of experience and when patients follow carefully the post injection instructions. Especially, no rubbing the Botox Injectable site area for 3 hours.  Other potential complications include failure to deliver on patient expectations.  It is important to realize that Botox Injectable is not there to eliminate all lines of animation, but to soften specific lines significantly.  Only 50% to 75% softening of lines of animation can be achieved.  For Botox Injectable facial shaping and contouring, without strong depressor activity in the face, it is unlikely to give a significant elevation of the soft tissue by the elevators.  However, those who have strong depressors, when Botox Injectable is used to relax them, a compensatory elevation of the brow, cheek and neck is very common and Botox Injectable facial shaping can be possible. Some Toronto patients complain of vague flu-like symptoms, such as muscle aches, stiffness, headache and even mild nausea for 2-4 hours after the procedure. These flu-like symptoms are treated with Tylenol or Advil and will resolve.

Why select Dr. Mulholland and SpaMedica for my Botox Injectable Treatment?

Dr Mulholland’s reputation to uniquely and artistically shape and contour faces and provide patients five to seven years of youth gained in 30 to 45 minutes of soft tissue filler, Botox Injectable and laser treatment.  Dr. Mulholland performs a lot of facelifts in the course of his surgical practice and this has given him an innate ability to understand  attractive human facial shapes and contours which greatly improves his non-invasive soft tissue filler and Botox Injectable treatment outcomes and aesthetic plans.  Toronto plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen Mulholland is one of the most sought after and reputable Botox Injectable physicians in the country and maintains a very busy “Injection Friday” whereupon all his facial injection patients seek treatment from Friday morning to late Friday afternoon, giving them the weekend to recover if there is any minor bruising, swelling or side effects.

What is a Botox Injectable Treatment?

Botox Injectable is a purified non-animal protein that, when expertly injected into selected facial and neck muscles, will improve the look of moderate-to-severe lines. It works by temporarily blocking the nerve impulses to the injected muscles, thus reducing muscle activity that causes persistent lines to form on the face and neck. It must be administered by a healthcare professional and is a low discomfort, nonsurgical treatment. Botox Injectable can also be expertly used to produce a non-surgical Botox Injectable Brow lift, Botox Injectable Cheek lift, Botox Injectable Corner of the Mouth Lift and Botox Injectable Neck Lift effects.

Your SpaMedica in-office treatment program will be complimented with a recommendation for our medical grade Home Skin Care which will help support and enhance your results.

Who is a candidate for Botox Injectable Treatment?

Individuals with expression lines who desire a more youthful, less wrinkles or furrowed appearance are the best candidates for treatment. Individuals who have a droopy brow, cheek, “corner-of-the-mouth” and droopy neck, who desire a Botox Injectable Lift effect and not surgery, are also candidates for treatment.

What happens during a Botox Injectable treatment?

Botox Injectable is injected around deep expression lines of the forehead and bridge of nose, crows feet, lip lines or droopy brows, cheeks, corner of the mouth, or neck that are caused by overactive muscles of expression and those muscles that pull down the face, also known as facial depressors. The treatment takes about 15 – 30 minutes to perform. Botox injections can be performed with topical anesthetic cream to reduce the mild skin discomfort of the procedure. Most clients return to work immediately after treatment with little to no discoloration or only slight bruising, that will disappear quickly and can be camouflaged with make-up. The muscle is relaxed over a period of several days and the expression lines soften dramatically, becoming less noticeable. The Botox Injectable “lift effect” of the brow, cheek, nose, jawline and/or neck will also occur over several days.

How long does a Botox Injectable treatment last?

Results usually last 3 – 6 months, when a repeat injection can be performed, to maintain the aesthetic results indefinitely.

Botox Injection Sites: What areas can be treated with Botox Injectable?

Areas which are treated with Botox Injectable may include: lip lines, dimpled chin, mouth frown, gummy smile, neck bands, open eyes, bunny lines, v-neck lines, frown lines, forehead lines, crows feet, brow lift and necklace lines. In addition, if a Botox Injectable Lift effect is desired, then droopines of the brow, cheek, undereye, cheek, “corner-of-the-mouth” and neck may be treated with Botox Injectable to obtain an elevated, non-surgical lift effect.

Who performs the injections and how much does Botox Injectable cost?


Dr. Mulholland injects both Botox Injectable and soft tissue fillers. As a plastic surgeon you would be seeing Dr. Mulholland for a non surgical facial shaping and rejuvenation consultation.

Dr. Mulholland uses Botox Injectable to affect facial shaping, with procedures like Botox Injectable brow lifting, cheek and face shaping. The wrinkles such as frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines are greatly diminished, while a lift effect is being achieved. In the lower face, Dr. Mulholland uses Botox Injectable to help lift the corners of the mouth, elevate a plunging nose, increase subtle volume to the lip and soften neck lines and bands. It is very common for Dr. Mulholland to perform this non surgical shaping using 60-90 units of Botox Injectable.

Dr. Mulholland’s Botox Injectable pricing starts at $18 per unit for the first 60 units, and then drops significantly. Most patients pay approximately $1500 to shape their brows, cheeks and faces, neckline, which also softens the deep lines and excessive animations.

If your goal is to achieve overall facial shaping, rejuvenation, natural anti-aging and non-surgical Botox Injectable lifting then you should see Dr. Mulholland on his injection Fridays.


Dr. Mulholland has also trained 5 injection nurses personally. The nurses are Botox Injectable experts and focus on smaller amounts of Botox Injectable for the reduction of lines, wrinkles and unattractive animations. The nurse often injects 30-60 units and the price per unit is $12 per unit.
