Botox in Surrey, BC
Botox is one of the most widely used cosmetic treatments in the world. It is extremely safe and has one of the highest patient satisfaction rates of any cosmetic procedure. It involves injecting medication into the muscles that control the expression lines in your face.
What It Can Do for You
Botox works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscle, thus eliminating furrows, wrinkles, and lines, and restoring a smoother, more relaxed, and more refreshed appearance.
What Is Botox Used For?
Botox can be used for relaxing and smoothing deep lines in the forehead, around the eyes and mouth, or even the neck.
It can also be used as an alternative to eyelid surgery. This works by relaxing the brow depressor muscle and allowing it to raise the skin of the upper lids. This simple 5-minute procedure can give your eyes a more wide-open, refreshed look.
For people suffering from excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis, Botox can be injected into the sweat glands, reducing or eliminating sweat production in areas such as the underarms or palms of the hands.
Combined with soft tissue dermal fillers, Botox is often used for natural non-surgical “liquid facelifts.”
Botox injections take a few minutes and are relatively painless. You can go back to work or resume your day immediately after the procedure. Occasionally there is a slight bruising at the injection site.
You will see the positive effects of Botox within a week of treatment and it lasts for up to six months.

You can go back to work or resume you normal activities after the treatment. Occasionally, patients experience minor swelling or bruising which goes away after a few days.
With Juvéderm, you can see the difference immediately and the effects will last for up to one year. You may want to have regular touch-up treatments after that to maintain the effects.
