Our Real Patient Results

What Makes BOTOX So Popular?

At Vancouver Laser & Skin Care Centre, BOTOX is one of the most popular treatments we offer. It’s an easy, effective way to look naturally refreshed, and it has a well-established safety record. The benefits include:

  • There is no downtime
  • Treatments are affordable
  • Treatments are quick
  • You can expect natural-looking results when BOTOX is skillfully administered
  • Results last 3 to 4 months, and even longer with repeated treatments

I recently had my first BOTOX treatment with Dr. Braun. He came highly recommended by a girlfriend of mine and I’m glad I took her advice. He is really professional, yet personable (and funny!).

Patient Review on RateMDs.com

How It Works

BOTOX is a neuromodulator that temporarily relaxes specific muscles by blocking nerve impulses. As the treated muscles release, wrinkles and lines created by their contractions gradually fade and sometimes even disappear completely.

Expect Excellence in BOTOX Treatments

While BOTOX providers are plentiful, so many Canadians choose our clinic because:

Experience: We perform more BOTOX treatments than most other clinics throughout Canada.

Expertise: Other providers come to us for training in BOTOX injections.

Results: Our BOTOX results are consistently attractive and natural-looking.

Care: Each BOTOX treatment is tailored to the individual’s unique facial anatomy.

An Essential Anti-Aging Treatment

BOTOX COSMETIC is an essential part of today’s anti-aging regimen. It is an effective treatment for those who want to get rid of, or even prevent, a variety of facial lines and wrinkles, including:

  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Vertical frown lines, also called glabellar lines, between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet around the corners of the eyes
  • Lip lines
  • Bunny lines, also called scrunch lines, at the top of the nose
  • Vertical neck bands, also called platysmal bands
  • Irregular, dimpled skin on the chin

BOTOX injections can also be used to create a slight lift at the outer corners of the brows.

Other Uses

BOTOX is safe and effective for treating much more than wrinkles. We offer it as a simple, non-surgical solution for a variety of other conditions, including:

What to Expect During Your BOTOX Treatment

BOTOX treatments typically take only 10 minutes, which is another reason for their popularity. Patients usually experience very little discomfort, but we can prep the areas with ice or anesthetic cream if you are concerned about pain. Using a very fine needle, the doctor makes quick injections into the targeted muscles. After your appointment, you may return to work and other regular activities immediately, although we suggest that you avoid pressing on treated areas which may be a little sensitive at the injection sites.

Your Improved Look

Results are not immediate with BOTOX treatments; you will notice the BOTOX beginning to take effect in about 7 to 10 days. You will look refreshed and relaxed, and improvements will continue as the skin turns over. We advise our patients to expect peak results after 4 to 6 weeks, and to keep this in mind when planning for special events. Results typically last 3 to 4 months. Many patients say they also notice relief of facial tension and headaches. We recommend regular touch-up treatments to maintain results.

Looking Younger Gets Easier

Facial muscles, like many other muscles, weaken when they’re not used, which explains why regularly scheduled BOTOX treatments have been shown to produce prolonged results.

Common Questions

Is BOTOX safe?
Yes. BOTOX COSMETIC has been approved for cosmetic use in Canada since 2001 and is safe when administered by a knowledgeable, experienced practitioner.

Do BOTOX treatments and dermal fillers do the same thing?
While both are injectable treatments that treat signs of aging, they work in different ways. Dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM® fill in wrinkles and folds from within the skin, providing instant results. BOTOX treatments smooth out wrinkles caused by facial muscle contractions, called dynamic wrinkles, and can take up to 6 weeks for full effectiveness. We often use these treatments together for a non-surgical facelift called Soft Lift™.

Will my face look expressionless?
The experienced professionals at Vancouver Laser & Skin Care Centre all have extensive knowledge of facial anatomy, and know precisely which muscles to inject for beautiful, natural-looking results. After BOTOX injections, you will be able to make a wide range of natural expressions while looking younger and more refreshed.
