Therapeutic Botox

Botox and Dysport are often used for therapeutic treatments, not just cosmetic.  They are neuromodulators that temporarily weaken and/or block the nerve signal that causes the muscle to overly contract. Treating the muscles in your head, neck or body that are causing pain or discomfort relaxes and relieves tension and spasms that may be contributing to a number of medical concerns and discomfort. 

The most common therapeutic treatments are hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating), headache, migraine, temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ/TMD), jaw clenching/grinding and chronic facial twitch (blepharospasm).

We always administer clinically trialed doses and placement,  considering the specific muscle involvement and  patient disposition. Our goal is to have the first therapeutic treatment last 3 months to decrease pain and break parafunctional habits. Moving forward with a appropriate re-treatment schedule, we expect to space out treatments anywhere between 4-9 months, depending on the severity.

I fully trust Deanne with my face. I was nervous to start with injectables, but I really wasn’t happy with my deep crows feet, and Deanne made the experience so comfortable. I love that her dosing of units is evidence based. She landmarks anatomy every single time to make sure the injection sites are spot on, and I have been thrilled with the results. Her entire process is very professional. Even though I now live two provinces away, I travel back for Dysport so that Deanne can be the one to do it. The best!

Let me start by saying how kind, passionate and intelligent Deanne is working in her field. She truly is so thorough and made me feel so comfortable through my entire Dysport and Botox session. Her knowledge of facial anatomy is top notch and it shows as her work and results are meticulous. I’ve gone to other injectors in the past and Deanne’s work has surpassed my previous results, not only for a beautiful natural look but also longevity of my results. She is the only one who I trust my injections to. I also get my ZO skincare from her and she is so knowledgeable on each product whenever I have questions. I trust Deanne for all my cosmetic injections and skincare needs.

I highly recommend Deanne and her amazing work. She thoughtfully guided me through the process and explained how each Dysport and Botox placement was made to safely ensure a fantastic result. I feel so much more confident and comfortable in my skin now!

I've met with both Deanne Pilsner RN,  and Dr. Jon Dautremont over the past year for several Botox treatments. Their combined knowledge and expertise have given me the confidence I expected from a healthcare professional to administer this type of facial rejuvenation. They both genuinely care about their work and their patients' experience. I also have complete confidence in Deanne's technique, and I appreciate her attention to detail and would highly recommend her services to anyone considering this type of treatment.
