Treatment For Wrinkles & Lines
BOTOX® Cosmetic Therapy Consultations
Look Refreshed And Rested, Not Done
There are 4 main neuromodulators available on the market: Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Nuceiva®. Each is used to reduce the signs of aging through softening fine lines and wrinkles creating a more youthful glow.
Our skilled cosmetic injectors at Helix will work with you to ensure you achieve your desired results. We want you to look natural and not over done with all our treatments.
Each treatment starts with a consult to review goals and concerns. Treatments generally take less than 30 minutes with majority of the time developing a plan. Your next treatment will be book in 3-4 months apart. The benefits may be enjoyed for several months, and the untreated areas will continue to operate normally so your results will look natural.
How Does Botox® Work?
Botox® or other neuromodulators work by blocking the messaging pathway to treated muscles. By stopping the connection, it stops the muscle from activating which stop the formation of wrinkles. Lines that can be seen at rest are referred to as "static" lines while lines/wrinkles that are seen with movement are referred to as "dynamic" lines. Botox® helps to prevent and even reverse both static and dynamic lines.
While skin care routines can help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, no other treatment on the market today acts the same way on the muscle as Botox®. It is the leading wrinkle reducing treatment on the market with some of the best results for stopping wrinkle formation.
What to expect from a Botox® Treatment
Botox® treatments are relatively quick with no downtime after the procedure. At the Helix Clinic, we book 15 minutes for the treatment to review the benefits of Botox®. treatment goals, price point, and after care to ensure you understand your Botox® treatment. We encourage you to tell us about your previous treatments (if any) so we can understand how your muscles work and build off your previous Botox® treatments for the best result.
Botox® Pricing: $10/unit plus GST
Dysport® Pricing: $10/unit plus GST
Once the treatment is complete, you are able to go about your day as normal with a few restrictions to ensure the best outcome for your treatment.
Botox® For Men
Yes! Men get Botox® to help with anti-aging. They may not be as vocal but 100% they do. Even our male injectors at the clinic receive wrinkle prevention treatments to ensure they look youthful.
Men are a main reason why the neuromodulator sector is increasing. More and more men are signing up to look youthful. One of the best things you can do is to book a complimentary consult to develop a solid Botox® plan. The one negative is genetically, men require a few extra units due to muscle development.
Botox® Post Care
There is no downtime after a Botox® treatment however, there are a few restrictions such as: no gym for 12 hours, no sauna, no hot tub, and no laying down for a few hours post treatment.
Botox® does not reveal results right away. It takes on average 7 days for the Botox® treatment to start working and will continue to last for 3-4 months.
