Safety in numbers - A look at Botox Cosmetic in Canada

Provided By:

(NC)-Botox Cosmetic is the topic of many conflicting reports - is it or isn't it safe? Botox has been around for many years, but do we know enough about it? Dr. Frank G. Beninger, M.D., F.R.C.S.,

plastic surgeon, comments on the safety profile of this popular anti-wrinkle treatment that's receiving a lot of attention lately.

"There's a lot of misinformation out there about Botox Cosmetic, but the reality is that when used by a licensed, aesthetic-trained professional in an appropriate medical setting, it is completely safe and extremely effective for the treatment of wrinkles," says Dr. Beninger.

For example, many people may actually be surprised to know there are actually two types of Botox. Botox is used for the treatment of serious medical conditions in larger doses, while Botox Cosmetic is used in much smaller doses for the treatment of wrinkles. Botox and Botox Cosmetic should not be confused even though they are the same medicine.

"When it comes to using Botox Cosmetic, there is safety in numbers," says Dr. Beninger. "The long safety history, extensive and robust research, widespread use and positive patient satisfaction all say a great deal about the significance of this product."

16,000,000: Over 16 million people have been treated with BOTOX for medical and aesthetic purposes in North America, and many more around the world

3,000: Publications on Botulinum Toxin Type A (Botox) in scientific and medical journals

97: Percentage of people satisfied with their Botox Cosmetic treatment based on a survey of approximately 1,000 patients

75: Countries around the world who have approved the use of Botox

20: Botox indications approved around the world, for both medical and aesthetic purposes

18: Years of approval history in Canada. Over the past 18 years, Botox has received Health Canada approval for numerous other medical and aesthetic purposes (i.e. treatment of "frown lines" between the eyebrows, upper facial wrinkles and crow's feet)

1: The widespread use of BOTOX Cosmetic has made it the number one cosmetic procedure in Canada.

Dr. Beninger strongly urges anyone seeking Botox Cosmetic treatment to speak with a licensed and qualified physician in a medical setting for a thorough consultation. For more information on how to find a trained physician in your area, log on to www.FACEinstitute.ca.
