We’ve been injecting BOTOX® Cosmetic at Vancouver Laser & Skin Care Centre since 2000 and we specialize in creating “the natural look.” Our physicians have injected more than 2 million units of BOTOX® for more than 15,000 clients, making Vancouver Laser & Skin Care Centre the top volume and busiest BOTOX® clinic in Canada for more than 10 years.

Benefits

  • The most popular non-surgical aesthetic treatment
  • No downtime with a 30-year safety record
  • Affordable natural results
  • Results last 3 to 6 months

How it works

BOTOX® is a neuromodulator (not a dermal filler) that is approved by Health Canada to temporarily relax specific muscles by blocking the nerve impulses. As the treated muscles relax, dynamic wrinkles and lines created by their contraction gradually fade, and sometimes even disappear completely. The earlier a patient starts BOTOX®, the smoother their face will appear as they age. Regularly scheduled injections can actually prevent wrinkles.

The possible treatment areas for BOTOX® include forehead lines, frown lines, bunny lines, crow’s feet, slimming of the jaw, dimpled chin, gummy smile, lip lines and so much more. BOTOX® is safe when administered by an experienced practitioner with extensive knowledge of facial anatomy.

What to expect

A typical BOTOX® treatment takes only 10 minutes and there is very little discomfort as we use the tiniest needles known to man.

Results

The beautiful, natural looking results gradually take effect over the two weeks following your treatment and can last up to 3 or 6 months. We advise our patients to expect peak results after 4 to 6 weeks and to bear this in mind when planning for a special event. Results typically last 3 to 4 months and we recommend regular touch ups to maintain results.

Dr. Leanne Rowthorn exceeded my highest expectations.  I came by word of mouth and was blown away by not only her competence, knowledge and skills but also by her personality and bedside manner.  She and the consulting technician Malvina made me feel so at ease, answered my every question and gave me all the relevant information.  My concerns about pain were addressed and handled well. When the time came, I was absolutely PAMPERED and babied.  I got exactly what I asked for and more: it turned out as I imagined. I’m just elated. — Lisa B.

Possible downtime

  • Possible bruising
  • Possible tenderness at the injection site
  • Possible temporary muscle asymmetry

Post treatment care

  • Resume normal activities immediately post treatment
  • It is a myth that you cannot lie down for several hours or exercise following a BOTOX® treatment

Special recommendations

In our experience most patients report that their BOTOX® results look the most natural at 6 to 8 weeks. Therefore, if you have a special event coming up we recommend making your appointment for BOTOX® 6 – 8 weeks before the event. This also leaves time for a touch up if necessary.
