Has anyone ever told you that you look tired or angry? You might be sending the wrong signal to others without even knowing it. Are you looking to rejuvenate your forehead and frown lines to send a more positive message? BOTOX Cosmetic and Nuceiva injections at our Burlington med spa are an easy solution to soften out facial expressions and communicate a more fresh and vibrant version of you. We pride ourselves on delivering natural safe outcomes and love that patients visit us from Hamilton, Oakville, Grimsby, Mississauga, and throughout greater Toronto for BOTOX injections. Dr. Otto Weiglein and his Cosmedica team offer a simple, innovative approach to reversing the appearance of facial wrinkles with neuromodulator treatments.
"Do people say you look angry?"
Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
BOTOX and Nuceiva are well-known for their success in smoothing out forehead wrinkles and lines around the eyes. They are also effective for women and men in their 20s and early 30s who are seeing early signs of aging and want to look fresh, happier, and more revitalized.
BOTOX and Nuceiva work by temporarily relaxing the muscles that create dynamic wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, treatment as a young adult can delay the formation of those lines.
Like other clinics, we price by the unit here at Cosmedica. Our wrinkle smoother prices are on a pricing scale, meaning that the more units you obtain during treatment, the lower cost will be per unit. A customized treatment plan will be created for you, during your consultation, according to your needs and budget.
BOTOX and Nuceiva are great options for those who want to restore a calmer, more rested appearance to the eye area. It safely and effectively smoothes away the lines that are caused when we repeatedly make facial expressions, called “dynamic” wrinkles. We often use neuromodulators for:
When injected into tiny facial muscles, it softens wrinkles by temporarily preventing the muscles from contracting. This process is called cosmetic denervation. Without the repeated muscle contractions, the overlying skin is able to smooth out gradually.
BOTOX and Nuceiva treatments require no anaesthesia because there is very little discomfort involved. Here’s what you can expect when you schedule a wrinkle-smoothing appointment at Cosmedica:
Research suggests that consistent use of wrinkle-smoother injections can cause the effects to last longer. If your goal is to tighten your skin and get a lift, you may want to consider Ulthera Skin Tightening or facial fillers.
A BOTOX lip flip relaxes the muscles around the upper lip, allowing the lip to turn upward slightly. This upturn helps the upper lip look fuller. To achieve a lip flip, your provider will inject BOTOX along your lip’s vermillion border (the outline edge of your upper lip) and at the corners of your mouth.
Unlike lip fillers that add physical volume to the lips, a BOTOX lip flip simply allows more of your lip to show.
What is hyperhidrosis? Hyperhidrosis is an abnormal excessive sweating disorder. This at times can disrupt your life and be extremely embarrassing. You may sweat so much to soak up your shirt and be dripping from your hands or feet. Many people experience this, bare with the suffering, and modify their lifestyle to ‘hide’ their issue. Stop worrying and stressing, we’ve got your back!
At Cosmedica we have a safe, easy solution which relaxes the sweat glands and leaves you dry and fresh all day long. This treatment is approved by Health Canada and has been around for decades helping patients of all ages from young teens to late adult years. It involves a series of very tiny injections in the area with excessive sweating. Total treatment time is about 15 minutes and results from one treatment last up to a year.
Call us at (905) 631-6288 to schedule your hyperhidrosis excessive sweating treatment! Perfect for brides, men in suits, teenagers or anyone who is sweaty and wants to feel confident and fresh!

BOTOX, Nuceiva, and dermal fillers are all safe, simple injectable treatments that effectively soften wrinkles; however, they work in different ways. Dermal fillers can replace lost volume under the skin to smooth out wrinkles from below immediately. As their name implies, these products essentially fill in wrinkles. BOTOX and Nuceiva treat wrinkles by stopping contractions of the muscles that create them, enabling the overlying skin to gradually smooth out.
Yes. It is safe to use BOTOX or Nuceiva in combination with injectable fillers, which is sometimes called a “liquid facelift.” Because these wrinkle treatments work in different ways, it is often beneficial to have them performed together to address multiple signs of aging at once. Fillers can restore lost volume to sunken or sagging cheeks and fill in folds around the mouth. BOTOX or Nuceiva can smooth out lines on the forehead and wrinkles around the eyes. Together, these complementary treatments may give you an even fresher, more rested appearance than when used on their own.
One of the many advantages of BOTOX or Nuceiva treatments is that you can return to work and other daily activities right afterward. For the first few hours after treatment, we recommend that you refrain from strenuous exercise, avoid putting pressure on treated areas, and keep your head elevated.
The improvements from BOTOX and Nuceiva treatments last about 3 to 4 months, dependent on the treatment area. Previous lines and wrinkles will gradually return naturally. You can maintain your refreshed look by visiting Cosmedica for regular maintenance treatments.
Yes, at Cosmedica we can create a customized treatment plan designed to address your specific skin concerns. For example, Dr. Weiglein may recommend laser skin resurfacing alongside injections of BOTOX and dermal fillers. A customized chemical or laser peel can also complement your BOTOX treatment.
BOTOX has become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures among men. Its popularity has even spawned a name: “Brotox.” Men are increasingly coming to Cosmedica for BOTOX and Nuceiva, fillers, or other nonsurgical treatments. Social media has helped normalize it, as sharing photos of yourself on professional and social sites has become commonplace. More and more men are choosing to get aesthetic treatments than in the past.
“Preventative BOTOX” or Nuceiva can delay the onset of wrinkles but not prevent them from ultimately developing. Some patients start getting the injections in their late 20s when they notice the earliest signs of wrinkles developing in the area of their eyes. Because BOTOX and Nuceiva minimize the appearance of wrinkles by limiting the movement of facial muscles, relaxing these muscles at an earlier age will help prevent the immediate development of wrinkles.
If you’re interested in preventative BOTOX, it’s best to begin injections at the earliest sign of expression lines, such as crow’s feet or worry lines. This often occurs in your late 20s or early 30s.Back to Top
