Botox Treatment Victoria BC
North America's most popular treatment. Designed to soften lines and wrinkles in areas of excessive dynamic movement. A little Botox® results in a refreshed look and a reduction in unwanted expression lines.
Nuceiva (prabotulinumtoxinA) is an aesthetic injection that has the same mechanism of action as Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA). Collectively, these products are known as neuromodulators.
Commonly Asked Questions:
When will I notice the effects and how long does it last?
Typically maximum effects of neuromodulators occur around day 10-14, but can be noticed as soon as 48 hours after injections. These effects last for approximately 3-4 months.
What is the cost of a single treatment?
Cost is based on the amount of units used and therefore, varies greatly depending on the individual. For more information, book in for a complimentary consultation.
Are neuromodulators safe?
Although cosmetic treatment with Nuceiva is generally considered safe, it does have potential risks and adverse effects just like any other drug. For cosmetic procedures, very small amounts of the drug are injected which have been considered very safe. It is considered unsafe in certain individuals such as those allergic to any of the ingredients, pregnant individuals or those that have infection or inflammation around the injection sites. A health history form will be completed before any treatment is started to ensure that Nuceiva is safe for you.
Is the treatment painful?
Nuceiva is injected with an extremely small needle. The treatment is generally painless but you may feel a sensation similar to a pin prick or a mosquito bite.
What is the recovery time for neuromodulator injections?
The great thing about these injections is that there is zero downtime! Treatment takes about 10-20 minutes and you can continue on with your regular day. We recommend avoiding vigorous exercise for the remainder of the day.
