In Langley, Abbotsford, and Burnaby, BC, and around the world, BOTOX COSMETIC® has practically become a household name; however, many people do not fully understand the product and its uses. This popular wrinkle-smoothing injectable gives doctors and patients exciting options for reducing or eliminating the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, neck bands, and crow’s feet, as well as controlling excess perspiration for patients with hyperhidrosis, slimming the lower face and improving their scars. These treatments are excellent additions to many patients’ Prescription for Beauty™, exclusively available at YES.
At YES Medspa, our team of specialist physician injectors, offer both traditional and innovative uses of botulinum toxin A injections. Dr. Mosher & Dr. Lo have successfully treated thousands of patients over the past 20 years. For some patients, BOTOX is used for wrinkle-smoothing injections alone to create a more refreshed appearance, and for others, our physicians combine both BOTOX and other procedures such as dermal & facial fillers, lasers, Morpheus8, and EMFACE. These treatments are also very synergistic with surgical procedures such as brow lift, blepharoplasty, and facelifts, all available at YES Cosmetic Surgery Centre.
For a more complete understanding of BOTOX COSMETIC® treatments and how they can benefit you, request a consultation with Dr. Dennis Lo or Dr. Mathew Mosher at YES Medspa & Cosmetic Surgery Centre, where we specialize in offering you a full range of surgical and non-surgical options for aesthetic enhancement.
Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
Wrinkle-smoothing injections with botulinum toxin A are safe and effective injections of a medical product that has been used on millions of patients around the world over the past two decades. It is composed of a purified protein that temporarily disables tiny muscles responsible for “dynamic wrinkles”—those caused by repeated facial expressions such as frowning or squinting. A common misconception about these treatments is that they “freeze” the face or limit facial expressions. In fact, only the tiny muscles responsible for the wrinkles are affected, leaving the larger facial muscles fully functional. It is very important that wrinkle-smoothing injections be delivered expertly and in an individualized and precise manner to achieve optimal and natural-looking results. At YES, these treatments are delivered by experienced physicians holding Specialist certifications with the Royal College of Canada.
Experienced providers such as Dr. Mosher and Dr. Lo use wrinkle-smoothing injections at their Langley practice to produce excellent results for patients who want a nonsurgical, temporary, and affordable improvement in facial wrinkles, crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead furrows, neck muscle bands, and “necklace lines.” When combined with soft tissue fillers and carefully selected energy device applications such as Morpheus8, long-lasting, natural-looking improvements are achieved. YES team members are experts and have the experience and credentials to put our patients at ease.
While BOTOX® and dermal fillers are both injectable facial rejuvenation treatments, they work differently and have different uses. Here’s a comparison:
The wrinkle-smoothing treatment procedure is quick and simple, with no downtime and very little discomfort involved. After cleansing the area to be treated, injections are made with a very tiny needle. Redness and swelling may occur at the injection site, but these effects are usually minimal and will go away quickly. Most patients return to work or routine activities immediately following their 15-minute treatment. You will be given detailed instructions for your post-treatment care. Patients typically see noticeable results within 5 to 7 days. A customized follow-up appointment will be offered to meet your needs. Most patients return regularly to maintain their results.
There are currently 4 brands of wrinkle relaxers approved in Canada, all which contain botulinum toxin A. The doctors at YES MedSpa and Cosmetic Surgery Centre are experts in determining which product is best for you. You can trust our team to evaluate the scientific literature and make recommendations that more likely to give you the results that you are hoping for.
The safety of BOTOX® treatments has been extensively studied for several years, and research has shown that it is safe when used correctly. However, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding are advised to avoid BOTOX® treatments because the effects on the unborn child are unknown. BOTOX® injections have been used for more than 20 years in medicine for non-cosmetic purposes, including muscle spasms.
Focal injections of BOTOX® can effectively provide relief from chronic migraines and
(technically called hyperhidrosis). BOTOX® works by temporarily suspending the activity of the sensory nerves associated with migraines or sweat glands, depending on where it is injected. The underarm, scalp, and hands are the most common areas to get relief from unwanted perspiration. Hyperhidrosis treatments are effective for approximately 6 months and migraine treatments typically last for 3 months, after which they may be repeated for continued relief.excessive sweating
Because these treatments provide complementary improvements—fillers add volume to the skin and soft tissues, and BOTOX® smooths out dynamic wrinkles—we often combine them to provide more complete facial rejuvenation. In fact, SOFT LIFT™ is a customized treatment that combines JUVÉDERM® filler injections with BOTOX® injections for a refreshed, more youthful look without surgery.
Within 5 to 7 days, areas treated with BOTOX® usually begin to smooth out; improvement continues for about 10 to 14 days.
BOTOX® results and other wrinkle relaxers typically last for 3 to 5 months. You should return for a follow-up appointment after 3 or 4 months when results begin to diminish. More significant improvement in wrinkle smoothing occurs with ongoing treatments.
BOTOX® is typically used to treat the following areas of the face where muscle contractions create lines and creases:
