Medical & Cosmetic Botox Injection Therapy
Looking older than your years? Botox® is a simple effective way to remove wrinkles that can make you appear perpetually tired, stressed or angry.
While it’s true you can’t stop the aging process, you can slow its progress through the use of Botox – a simple, non surgical procedure that can brighten your face, smooth frown lines and make you look years younger.
Botox is a simple, yet effective way to soften or eliminate those deep, persistent lines that develop over time. It won’t remove permanent wrinkles – those inevitable character lines that develop over time – but it will eliminate wrinkles that appear when muscles in your face contract in a smile, frown or squint.
Just one 10 minute physician-led treatment involving a few small injections will freeze nerves leading to select facial muscles and remove lines that make you appear older, angrier, or more stressed than you truly are. Those lines, called dynamic wrinkles, will stay relaxed for as long as four months, when subsequent treatments will extend the results.
Botox Cosmetic Physician's Network
Botox, in the hands of physicians and expert nurse injectors, is a safe and proven anti-aging treatment that works best on areas in the upper third of the face including frown lines between the eyes, crow's feet and those horizontal lines that appear on the forehead. Results take five to seven days to appear, but are dramatically visible when they do.
Lakeshore Vein & Aesthetics Clinic is a Diamond Level Clinic, which means that we have some of the most experience and the highest levels of professional training from Botox supplier Allergan.
Approved for use in Canada for more than 10 years, Botox was first used for the treatment of eyelid spasms, cerebral palsy and migraine headaches. It is now used to treat more than 75 medical conditions including stuttering, voice tremors, back pain and excessive sweating (aka hyperhidrosis), a condition that stops temporarily when Botox is used to block the release of chemicals that stimulate sweat glands.
A common and successful 'combination treatment' is called Soft Lift®, which includes Botox Cosmetic® and Juvederm™ (a dermal filler). Lakeshore Vein & Aesthetics Clinic is one of the top Soft Lift clinics in Canada.
Medicis' Dysport: New Alternative on the horizon?
Dysport® is made by Ipsen, though it will be marketed by Medicis in Canada. (Medicis had intended to call it Reloxin, but it’s become Dysport.) Health Canada is expected to approve Dysport in 2010 as an injectable treatment for wrinkles. It will be offered as a competitor to Allergan’s Botox. Similar to Botox, it is made from the same neurotoxin. Compared to Botox, Dysport may act more quickly and last longer, according to a study from the Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery. As of yet, it is not available in Canada.
