Botox® is an injectable medication that is targeted at specific facial muscles. It works by weakening these muscles and removing the cause of wrinkling. Botox® tends to work very quickly (within 1-7 days) and should last 3-4 months. Injections are recommended to be repeated for lasting effects.

Botox® can be used also for hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating, although again it does require repeated injections. In this situation Botox® can be prescribed and may be covered by your private insurance.

Risks include bruising, temporary ptosis or drooping of the eyelids, temporary double vision (from weakening of eye muscles).

BOTOX for Migraines

Sudbury Plastic Surgery also offers therapeutic Botox® treatment for Chronic Migraine. Botox® Therapeutic has been approved by Health Canada for the treatment of chronic migraine headaches since 2011. Candidacy for treatment is dependent upon fulfilling the criteria for treatment & a physician referral.  Coverage for this is dependent on your health insurance plan/benefit plan. Botox® is indicated for the prophylaxis of headaches in adult patients with Chronic Migraine (≥ 15 days per month with headache lasting 4 hours a day or longer).


  • Non-invasive
  • No anesthetic required and most patients report very little discomfort.
  • Minimal downtime (patients must adhere to Post Care Instructions for best results)
  • Migraine attacks are less severe
  • Tolerance to triggers is higher
  • Better day-to-day functioning overall and improved quality of life


  • Individual results may vary
  • The effect of Botox® is not felt immediately after the injections. It takes 7 to 10 days on average
  • Effects usually last 10-12 weeks
  • Some patients who respond very well to Botox® may eventually space their treatments every 4 months without a recurrence of symptoms
  • If you decide not to have any more treatment, the Botulinum Toxin will naturally be metabolized by your body, and the effects will fade away
