Over time, repeated muscular contractions such as frowning, smiling and squinting will cause lines known as “dynamic wrinkles” to form on the face. Botox™ works by relaxing the muscles that cause these dynamic wrinkles thereby giving the face a smoother and more refreshed appearance. The Botox™ treatment procedure is performed in an outpatient setting here in Vancouver with absolutely no down time.
During a treatment for facial wrinkles, small amounts of Botox ™ are precisely placed into the muscle responsible for causing each wrinkle or line. The effects develop over 3 to 4 days and usually last 3 to 4 months, at which time another Botox™ treatment is required.
Botox™ is an excellent treatment option to help reduce wrinkles between the eyebrows (“frown lines” or “glabellar lines”), on the forehead and around the eyes (“laugh lines” or “crows feet”). In some cases Botox™ can be used to provide a subtle browlift, to soften vertical lines on the upper lip and to treat muscular bands in the neck and dimpling of the chin.
Botox™ is also excellent for excessive perspiration or hyperhidrosis treatments as well as a treatment for tension and migraine headaches. All our Botox™ treatments are done here in Vancouver.
Dr. Denton has safely treated thousands of patients with Botox™ in Vancouver and performs each injection himself – ensuring each patient the best possible outcome.
