The most advanced anti-wrinkle botox treatment to be approved by Health Canada and the FDA.
Some of the most common benefits are:
Quick treatment with no downtime.
More cost-effective than Botox brand (approximately 25% cheaper).
Injections are made in a precise manner that won’t impact the surrounding area that you will have very natural results.
Soft, selective muscle relaxing with Nuceiva leaves you with as much facial expression as you want.
How It Works
Nuceiva works by blocking the nerve signals that cause muscles to contract. By relaxing muscles under the skin, Nuceiva prevents certain muscle movements and as a result smooths fine lines and wrinkles.
How many treatments will I need?
This is a temporary treatment that will need to be repeated in approximately 120-140 days, however, how long Nuceiva lasts varies from person to person. People often book their next appointment in 3 1/2 to 4 months.
When will I see results from my treatment?
You will see full results from your Nuceiva treatment after 7 - 10 days. We always book a 2 week follow up appointment with you for touch up purposes.
Is this treatment right for me?
Dr Sithembu will ensure you are suitable for the treatment before receiving it in your consultation.
You shouldn’t get Nuceiva if:
- You are allergic to any of the ingredients in Nuceiva
- Have had a previous allergic reaction to other botulinum toxin products
- Have a skin infection at the planned injection site
What should I expect during treatments?
Before your visit with Dr Sithembu, you’ll be asked to complete intake forms. Please be sure to complete any intake forms sent to you as soon as you receive them.
On the day of your treatment, we will take treatment photos for your file and Dr Sithembu will map the injection sites on your skin and cleanse the area. Dr Sithembu will then inject Nuceiva into your skin using a small needle at multiple injection sites.
You should be able to return to most of your normal activities immediately after treatment. Dr Sithembu will advise you of any special instructions.
What should I expect post treatment?
Most people can return to their normal activities immediately after Nuceiva injections. Headaches, swelling, bruising, redness and other side effects are usually mild and subside within a day or two.

- amount of enhancing or correction necessary to achieve the desired result
