BOTOX Therapeutic®

Botox Therapeutic treatment proves to be an effective treatment for tension headaches, migraines, neck and back pains. Both Health Canada and the FDA approve this treatment.

When you experience muscle spasms, it is because your nerve cells are sending signals directly to your muscles. BOTOX® works by blocking these signals that cause your muscles to become overactive and tense up.

BOTOX Therapeutic can also be an effective treatment to prevent excessive sweating. This has been approved to treat the symptoms of severe sweating when medicines used on the skin do not work well enough.

To help control sweating, we inject BOTOX Therapeutic into the affected areas . This temporarily blocks the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. Subsequently, when the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops.

If your physician has recommended Botox Therapeutic treatment, book a consultation at Rosenthal Clinic in Victoria to learn about treatments available to you.

Conditions

Large Pores

Decreased elasticity is the main cause of enlarged pores. To help control oils and encourage the pores to stay clean, we recommend using BHA (Salicylic Acid). We also recommend a custom daily skin care regime. This could include retinoids, antioxidants and growth factors to keep the skin tight and...

Tear Trough or Hollowing Under the Eyes

The area under the eyes is generally where the earliest signs of aging appear. It is here where we find the thinnest skin in our body. Age related loss of collagen accelerated by factors such as sun exposure and smoking result in the early appearance of fine lines and “crepey”...

Square Jawline (Masseter)

Acne scarring

Acne scarring is the result of inadequate treatment of active acne. Eventually, it tends to become more noticeable as our skin ages.
