Forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and furrowed brows are common concerns as we age, sometimes making us look older or more tired than we really are. Fortunately, smoothing these lines to create a younger appearance is simple with strategically placed injections of BOTOX COSMETIC. In Vancouver, we treat men and women from Surrey, Delta and surrounding areas who come to our clinic to refresh their appearance with these minimally invasive injections that take just minutes to complete.

BOTOX is the most popular cosmetic treatment in North America.

What Is BOTOX?

BOTOX is a neuromodulator that temporarily reduces specific muscle movements by blocking nerve impulses. As the BOTOX prevents the targeted muscles from moving, wrinkles and lines created when those muscles contract are effectively reduced. That gives the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance.

BOTOX® Benefits

Around the world and at Vancouver Laser & Skin Care Centre, BOTOX is highly popular due to its proven track record of safe, effective results and its convenience. The benefits include:

  • No downtime
  • Short appointment time
  • Natural-looking results
  • Results last 3 to 4 months, and even longer with repeated use

Combining BOTOX With Other Treatments

BOTOX gets excellent results as a stand-alone treatment. For a more complete facial rejuvenation, though, we can combine BOTOX with dermal filler injections for a non-surgical facelift called a Soft Lift™. This approach combines BOTOX and JUVÉDERM®, a family of fillers that restore volume to cheeks and other areas to give your face a refreshed, more youthful look.

How BOTOX Works

When used by a trained injector with a thorough understanding of facial anatomy, small doses of BOTOX disrupt the release of a specific chemical that triggers nerves that cause muscle contractions. By interfering with select muscles used for facial expressions, lines and wrinkles are smoothed and your skin appears younger. Patients are still able to make natural expressions, but their fine wrinkles are softened.

What to Expect

BOTOX treatments typically take only 10 minutes, which is another reason why it’s so popular. It typically takes about 7 to 10 days for the full results to be seen. Many patients also experience relief of tension and headaches. Results usually last 3 to 4 months. At that point, patients will return for another treatment. The effects often last longer after several treatments. We refer to this as long-term smoothening.

Are There Side Effects?

There are no known permanent side effects associated with BOTOX. It is a proven anti-aging treatment that’s been used for more than 20 years. There are some temporary side effects that can occur, including:

  • Bruising and pain at injection sites
  • Mild eyebrow or eyelid droop (seen in less than 1% of patients, usually lasting 2 to 4 days)

Common Treatment Areas

BOTOX Cosmetic treats facial lines and wrinkles. Treatments commonly address:

  • Glabellar frown lines (deep, vertical creases between the eyebrows)
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet (wrinkles on the corners of the eyes)
  • Turkey neck
  • Lip lines
  • Irregular, dimpled skin on the chin
