Overview

One of the first signs of aging that appear are fine lines and unfortunately, it doesn’t take long before these faint creases turn into deep furrows. As frown lines and forehead wrinkles set in, they can result in a fixed look of stress and fatigue—not exactly the message one hopes to present to the world. Fortunately, Kelowna and Okanagan Valley patients can opt for a wrinkle reduction treatment that is both preventative and corrective, and requires no downtime: Botox® Cosmetic.

How it Works

With a few precise injections of a Botox® Cosmetic treatment, the nerve signals that activate muscle contractions are disrupted. The constant muscular tension that leads to permanent expression lines such as crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles melts away, softening existing wrinkles and smoothing fine lines.

Recovery & Results

There is no recovery time involved with a Botox® Cosmetic treatment. Results arise over a period of 1-2 weeks and dissipate after 3-4 months. The rate at which the treatment is metabolized will vary for each individual. Repeat treatments are required to maintain results, and when done regularly, the treatment dosage required to realize optimal outcomes can lessen over time.
