Neurotixin Injections Treatment areas muscles targeted and results in Montreal

Forehead Lines

Forehead (Frontalis): Obviously, eyebrow movements play a significant role in facial expressions, which can lead to the formation of horizontal lines on the forehead. No need to worry though, you keep enjoying life and expressing yourself! We’ve got you!

Botox treatments can significantly enhance the look of these lines, allowing you to express emotions freely. Typically, 10-20 units of Botox are needed for effective treatment in this region.

Glabellar Lines or Frown Lines

Forehead (Corrugator Supercilii Procerus): Also known as the 11 Lines, the vertical creases that appear between the eyebrows due to frowning or concentration are effectively treated with Botox. Our bestie (AKA: Botox) can smooth out these lines, and also alleviate headaches caused by muscle strain in this area. Typical dosage ranges from 15-30 units.

Eyebrow lifting or Brow Lift

Eyebrow (Orbicularis Oculi): A targeted Botox injection can subtly lift the eyebrows, resulting in higher, more arched brows. The procedure usually requires about 10 units of Botox.

Crow’s Feet

Eyes (Orbicularis Oculi): Daily facial activities like smiling and squinting lead to the development of Crow’s Feet around the eyes. Because we know how important it is to smile in life, Botox can help you keep calm and smiling!

Botox relaxes these muscles, minimizing wrinkles and folds, leading to a smoother facial appearance. This type of treatment usually requires 12-24 units of Botox.

Bunny Lines

Nose (Nasalis): Bunny lines, which appear on the nose during squinting or snarling, can be softened with Botox. Effective treatment often requires 8-16 units.

Non-surgical nose lift

Nose (Depressor Septi Nasi): Botox for a non-surgical nose lift typically involves injecting 5-10 units into the depressor septi nasi muscle, which is responsible for pulling the nose downward. By relaxing this muscle, Botox helps lift the tip of the nose, creating a more refined and elevated appearance without surgery.

This cost-effective alternative offers natural-looking results that can help enhance facial features while maintaining an overall balanced look.

Gummy Smile

Premaxilla (Levator Labii Superioris: The Levator Labii Superioris Alaeque Nasi, and The Alaeque Nasi): For those feeling self-conscious when smiling, no need for that anymore! Take as many selfies as you want and love your smile with Botox injections!

Botox injections can reduce gum visibility by targeting the upper lip muscles. This procedure typically needs 4-6 units of Botox.


Jaw (Masseter): Botox treatment for bruxism targets the masseter muscles, injecting about 40-80 units to relax these muscles and reduce teeth grinding and jaw clenching. This not only alleviates jaw tension and pain but also helps prevent wear on teeth, promoting a more comfortable, healthy jaw function. It can also be used for contouring of the face.


Botox Lift Flip (Orbicularis Oris): The Botox lip flip consists of administering 4-6 units of Botox around the center of the upper lip, particularly near the cupid’s bow, and at the corners. This procedure targets the orbicularis oris muscles that encircle the upper lip, relaxing them so the lip can subtly roll outward, enhancing its fullness and defining its shape more distinctly.

Marionette Lines

Mouth (Depressor Anguli Oris): Botox can lift the drooping corners of the mouth by relaxing the DAO muscles that pull the lips downward. This treatment typically requires 6-12 units of Botox.

A well-known technique is the Cleopatra Botox. The Botox Cleopatra technique is designed to enhance the corners of the mouth by targeting the depressor anguli oris (DAO) muscles. The Cleopatra technique effectively lifts the corners of the mouth, giving a more youthful and cheerful appearance.

Chin Dimpling

Chin (Mentalis): Botox can smooth the dimpled or “orange peel” texture of the chin by targeting the mentalis muscle. For noticeable improvement, this usually involves 6-10 units of Botox.

Platysmal Neck Bands

Neck (Platysma): The prominent vertical bands in the neck, caused by the descending platysma muscles with age, can be softened with Botox. Treatment usually involves 30-60 units.

A popular treatment is Nefertiti Lift with Botox, which enhances the jawline and neck by targeting the platysma bands. This procedure reduces the downward pull and provides a more youthful, contoured appearance to the neck and jaw area.

Trap Tox

Upper Back (Trapezius): Injecting Botox into the trapezius muscles can reduce their size and tension, leading to a more elongated neck and shoulder appearance.

This can help alleviate neck and shoulder pain and discomfort caused by various activities, offering both aesthetic and therapeutic benefits.

Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)

Botox treatment for excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, typically involves injecting approximately 50-100 units directly into the skin of the affected areas, such as the underarms. This treatment targets the sweat glands themselves rather than the muscles, blocking the nerve signals that trigger excessive sweating. This safe and effective procedure can significantly reduce sweating, improving comfort and confidence in social and professional settings.

MicroTox® (Baby Botox)

MicroTox® treatment involves the precise injection of small amounts of Botox, into the superficial layers of the skin rather than targeting deeper muscle groups. This advanced technique is designed to refine skin texture, tighten pores, and provide a subtle lift, enhancing the skin’s overall firmness and youthful appearance. Ideal for those seeking a refreshed look with minimal invasiveness, MicroTox® offers visible improvements without altering facial expressions.

Microdoplet Lift

The Botox Microdroplet technique involves injecting tiny, precise amounts of Botox, into targeted facial muscles. This method focuses on delivering the neurotoxin in small, controlled doses to achieve a subtle and natural-looking reduction of fine lines and wrinkles without compromising facial expressions. The microdroplet approach is often used around the eyes, forehead, and mouth, where it can delicately smooth the skin while maintaining the natural dynamics of facial movement. This technique is ideal for those seeking a refined and rejuvenated appearance with minimal intervention.

Which Neuromodulator Is Best for You?

Comparison: Botox® VS Dysport® VS Jeuveau® VS Xeomin®
To illustrate the similarities and differences between various neuromodulators, we've designed an informative infographic that presents them side by side for easy comparison. This visual guide will help you better understand how each option varies when we compare them side by side. It is our hope it will help you choose the one that best fits your needs.





FDA and Health Canada Approval Status
FDA and Health Canada Approval Status Originally approved by the FDA in April 2002, Botox® is a temporary cosmetic solution specifically designed to smooth frown lines between the eyebrows. Since 2001, the toxin has been Health Canada approved to treat 'frown lines' between the eyes, 'crow's feet' and forehead wrinkles. Over the years, its approval has expanded to include the treatment of forehead lines and crow's feet, along with a variety of other "off label" uses. Dysport® received FDA clearance in April 2009 for the treatment of frown lines. Similar to Botox®, it is also used therapeutically to alleviate muscle spasticity. Recently introduced, Jeuveau® was approved in February 2019 strictly for cosmetic purposes. Xeomin® received FDA approval for treating frown lines in July 2011 and has also been approved by Health Canada in 2009.
Botox treatments utilize a purified form of botulinum toxin to temporarily relax facial muscles, effectively minimizing wrinkles that form from repetitive facial expressions. In Montreal, Botox injections work by blocking nerve signals to selected muscles, which prevents them from contracting and helps smooth out dynamic wrinkles such as crow's feet and frown lines. This popular anti-wrinkle solution inhibits the release of acetylcholine, thereby stopping muscle contractions. Beyond its cosmetic applications, Botox® is also used medically for conditions such as TMJ disorders, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), and migraines, among others. While Botox® is a well-recognized brand, its popularity does not necessarily mean it is superior to other treatments available on the market. This makes Botox® a versatile option for both aesthetic and medical treatments, widely sought after in clinics and medical offices worldwide.
Produced by Medicis Pharmaceutical, Dysport® (also known as abobotulinumtoxinA) is generally considered slightly less potent than Botox® due to differences in molecular weight. Although both treatments contain the same 150 kDa of BoNT-A, Dysport®'s protective proteins are not uniform like those in Botox®, leading to a higher diffusion rate. This characteristic makes Dysport® better suited for treating larger areas such as the forehead, although more product may be required to see results. The cost, however, tends to be similar to that of Botox®. Dysport® is formulated with human albumin and also includes lactose and cow’s milk protein, which means it is not suitable for individuals with milk allergies.
Marketed with the catchy nickname “#NEWTOX” at its high-profile launch, Jeuveau® (also known as prabotulinumtoxinA) is produced by Evolus. It aims to compete with Botox®, sharing a similar molecular weight of 900 kDa and a formulation that includes human albumin and sodium chloride. With a price that's 20 to 30 percent lower than Botox® and marketing efforts primarily aimed at millennials, Jeuveau® is positioned to attract a distinct demographic.
Manufactured by Merz, Xeomin® (also known as incobotulinumtoxinA) stands out because it is free from complex proteins in its BoNT-A composition, and it includes human albumin and sucrose among its inactive ingredients. This formulation means it does not require refrigeration and might be more comfortable to inject since it can be stored at room temperature. While the cost is comparable to Botox® and Dysport®, fewer units of Xeomin® may be needed to achieve effective results. Xeomin® could be particularly beneficial for patients who have developed resistance to Botox® or Dysport®, due to its purer form of BoNT-A.
Results* Typically, it takes about three to five days after treatment for the initial effects to become noticeable, although the full impact may not be visible for up to two weeks. The duration of Botox® effects generally lasts between two to three months for most patients. It was the first and the most frequently used neuromodulator. How long the results last can vary widely depending on factors like how a patient's body processes the product and the specific area that was treated. The effects of Dysport® can appear faster, sometimes within 24 hours, compared to Botox®. However, studies suggest that these effects might not last as long. This shorter duration may be preferable for those new to BoNT-A injections who are uncertain about the long-term appearance of their results. Although only recently available, Jeuveau® has shown in trials to match Botox® in safety and effectiveness. Results typically become noticeable within three to five days and can last between three to six months. Fun fact: Nuceiva is actually known as Jeuveau in the United States, so don't be surprised if you see that name pop up in your Google search results! The effects of Xeomin® injections typically appear within five to seven days and the duration of these results is comparable to those of Botox®, Dysport®, and Jeuveau®.

* According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the most common side effects of any botulinum toxin injectable are bruising and pain at the injection site, flu-like symptoms, headache, nausea, redness, and temporary facial drooping.

While rare, it is possible that the toxin may spread beyond the treatment area, which could lead to botulism-like symptoms including trouble breathing and swallowing, muscle weakness, and slurred speech.

What is Botox?

Botox® (botulinum toxins) is a drug made from a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. There are many brands that develop different variations of this type of drug.

Will all types of Botox work for me?

No! A brief consultation with one of our doctors is required to identify the best treatment plan for your desired results. This is how we are able to ensure a natural-looking result. Different compounds of Botox (also known as neuromodulators) at varying doses must be carefully administered to create a variety of aesthetic facial and bodily improvements safely.

Why do I have wrinkles and expression lines?

Like grooves in a field are formed by walking trails, wrinkles are created when certain muscles and dermal structures grow weak and take the path of least resistance. The body behaves similarly; that is why fine expression lines and wrinkles appear as your dermal tissue loses its elasticity and smoothness. This is why the most common applications for cosmetic Botox are to reduce crow’s feet, marionette lines, forehead wrinkles, and aging lines. 

What are there risks or side effects of getting Botox?

The most common side effects are temporary pain, swelling, or bruising at the injection site.

You could also have flu-like symptoms, headaches, and an upset stomach. Injections in the face may also cause temporary drooping eyelids.

With these minimally invasive procedures, there is always a risk of infection, asymmetry, or an undesired result. That is why we go the extra mile to personalize your treatment plan, offer several options, and do our best to work with you to achieve satisfactory results.

What are the contraindications of Botox treatments?

You should not use Botox if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. It is best to avoid alcohol at least one week prior to treatment. Aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications should be stopped two weeks before treatment in order to reduce bruising. Since botulinum toxins don’t work for all wrinkles or cases, you should consult with a doctor first.

What effect does Botox have on the body?

Botox works by temporarily weakening or paralyzing certain muscles or by blocking certain nerves. The cosmetic effects of Botox last about 2-3 months, depending on what you are treating. As the effects begin to wear off, you will need small doses of touch-up injections to maintain your youthful look.

How much do Botox treatments cost?

At Ideal Body Clinic, a typical aesthetic Botox treatment costs $8 per unit. Unlike other medical spas in Montreal, we are proud to have the most affordable prices to make your ideal beauty more accessible.

Do Botox injections hurt?

Most patients say that Botox injections do not hurt. You will experience a slight pinch or burn with the initial application and for sensitive skin, we can use a topical anesthetic spray or cream to numb the area being treated.

What are Neuromodulators?

Neuromodulators are substances used in aesthetic medicine to temporarily relax facial muscles, smoothing wrinkles and preventing the formation of new lines. Commonly known as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, these treatments are highly effective for anti-aging purposes, enhancing facial appearance by reducing signs of aging and maintaining a youthful complexion. They work by inhibiting nerve signals that cause muscle contractions, thereby softening expression lines and wrinkles.

How long does Botox last?

Botox typically lasts between 2 to 3 months. The duration can vary depending on factors such as the patient’s muscle activity, metabolism rate, and the area treated. Regular treatments can help maintain the smooth, youthful appearance that Botox provides.

What are the benefits of Botox injections?

Botox injections offer several benefits, making them a popular choice for those looking to enhance their appearance and manage certain medical conditions.

Reduction of Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Botox effectively smooths out age-related wrinkles and fine lines, particularly around the eyes (crow’s feet), forehead, and between the eyebrows (frown lines).


Preventative Anti-Aging: Regular use of Botox can slow the development of new wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles, thereby preventing the deepening of lines from repetitive expressions.


Quick and Minimally Invasive: The procedure is fast, usually taking only a few minutes, and does not require any anesthesia. This makes it a convenient “lunchtime procedure” with no downtime.


Non-Surgical Solution: Botox offers a non-surgical alternative to more invasive cosmetic surgeries, providing significant anti-aging results without the risks associated with surgery.


Temporary Results: For those uncertain about committing to permanent cosmetic changes, Botox provides a temporary solution, lasting typically 2-3 months, which can be adjusted or discontinued at any time.


Medical Benefits: Beyond aesthetics, Botox is approved for treating a variety of medical conditions such as chronic migraine, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), overactive bladder, and certain muscle spasm disorders.


Improved Confidence and Mental Well-being: The cosmetic improvements from Botox can lead to enhanced self-esteem and confidence, contributing positively to mental and emotional well-being.


Customizable Treatment: Botox treatments can be tailored to meet individual aesthetic goals, whether you’re looking for subtle enhancements or more noticeable results.


Minimal Side Effects: When administered by a qualified professional, Botox injections are safe and have minimal side effects, mostly limited to temporary bruising or swelling at the injection site.


Fast Acting Results: Visible improvements are usually noticeable within a few days after treatment, reaching full effect within two weeks.

How long does it take for Botox to work?

Botox typically begins to show effects within 3 to 7 days after treatment, with the full results becoming visible after about two weeks. The onset can vary slightly based on individual factors such as the treatment area and the person’s muscle responsiveness. This quick onset makes Botox a popular choice for those seeking a swift improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Is Botox good for migraines?

Yes, Botox is an effective treatment for chronic migraines. Approved by Health Canada for this use, Botox injections help reduce the frequency and severity of migraine headaches. The treatment involves multiple injections around the head and neck, which work by blocking neurotransmitters that carry pain signals from the brain, thus preventing migraines before they start. This makes Botox a valuable option for those seeking relief from chronic migraine symptoms.

What’s better, Botox, Dysport, Nuceiva, or Xeomin?

Choosing the right treatment between Neuromodulators (like Botox, Dysport, Nuceiva, and Xeomin) depends largely on your specific aesthetic goals, the area you want to treat, and your personal preferences. Each product has distinct characteristics that make it better suited for certain purposes.
Botox is renowned for its effectiveness and wide recognition. Dysport often works slightly faster and may spread over a larger area, which can be beneficial for treating extensive regions. Nuceiva, similar to Botox, is noted for potentially longer-lasting results, while Xeomin is unique in that it contains no complex proteins, which may reduce the risk of developing resistance.

What is the difference between Botox and MicroTox?

Botox and MicroTox are both treatments involving botulinum toxin, but they are applied differently to achieve distinct aesthetic results.


Botox is traditionally used to smooth deep wrinkles and lines by injecting directly into the muscles that cause these expressions, such as the forehead, around the eyes, and between the eyebrows. The treatment relaxes these muscles, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance.


MicroTox, on the other hand, involves injecting smaller amounts of Botox more superficially into the skin, rather than targeting deeper muscle layers. This technique is primarily aimed at improving skin texture and tightening. It’s especially effective for fine lines, pore reduction, and subtle lifting of the skin, providing an overall rejuvenated look without altering muscle movement as significantly as traditional Botox might.


In summary, while both use the same substance, the differences in injection depth and the amount of Botox used distinguish Botox for deeper expression lines from MicroTox for more surface-level skin improvements.

What is the difference between dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers?

Dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers are both popular cosmetic treatments but serve different purposes. Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm or Restylane, are gel-like substances injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines, and enhance facial contours. They are ideal for deep-set wrinkles and areas needing volume enhancement like cheeks and lips.

Wrinkle relaxers, like Botox and Dysport, are neuromodulators that relax muscles under the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles caused by muscle movements, such as frown lines and crow’s feet. These treatments temporarily inhibit muscle contractions, leading to smoother skin on the surface.

Choosing between these treatments depends on the type of aging signs you wish to correct—whether it’s restoring volume with fillers or smoothing out expression lines with relaxers.

What are the differences between Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Nuceiva?

Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Nuceiva are all neuromodulators used to smooth wrinkles and treat various medical conditions, but they have some key differences in their formulation, diffusion, and duration of effects:


Botox (OnabotulinumtoxinA): The most widely recognized brand, Botox has been used for decades. It’s approved for both cosmetic and medical uses, including treating chronic migraines, muscle spasms, and excessive sweating. Botox typically takes effect within a few days and lasts about 3-4 months.


Dysport (AbobotulinumtoxinA): Similar to Botox but with a slightly different protein formulation, Dysport tends to spread a bit more after injection, making it ideal for larger areas like the forehead. It may work slightly faster than Botox, and while its effects are also temporary, some users report longer-lasting results.


Xeomin (IncobotulinumtoxinA): Known as the “naked injectable” by dermatologists, Xeomin is unique because it does not contain any additives, which means there is a lower risk of developing resistance to it. It’s primarily used for cosmetic purposes and has similar efficacy and duration as Botox.


Nuceiva (PrabotulinumtoxinA): Known as Jeuveau in the United States, Nuceiva is the newest among these products and is marketed primarily for aesthetic uses. It is similar to Botox in terms of onset and duration, but often comes at a lower price point, making it a cost-effective alternative.


Each product’s effectiveness can vary based on the area treated, the patient’s skin type, muscle mass, and the desired outcome. While all four products are very similar in their basic mechanism—blocking nerve signals to relax muscles—they have slight differences that might make one more suitable than another depending on the specific circumstances and needs of the patient. Consulting with a skilled practitioner is the best way to determine which option is right for you, based on your aesthetic goals and any relevant medical considerations.
