What is Botox?

The human skin is unfortunately subject to various influences throughout a person’s life, which can be expressed in more or less pronounced skin folds with increasing age. In addition to the natural aging process, environmental influences such as sunlight, nicotine consumption or stress often deteriorate the skin by negatively affecting the firmness and elasticity of the skin tissue. For this reason, Botox is an excellent treatment to make the skin more wrinkle-free and smooth.

Botox is the abbreviation of botulinum toxin type A, a natural protein obtained biotechnologically from a bacterium. The substance was first described in 1817. With over 4,000 scientific and medical publications, Botox is the most comprehensive in the world. It is one of the most researched and documented active ingredients.

Vancouver Wrinkles Treatment

Botox against wrinkles: Wrinkles are a natural aging process that increases between the ages of 40 and 50. Depending on people’s diet and lifestyle, it is more pronounced in some people and less pronounced in others. For example, forehead and frown lines develop particularly strongly in people with lively facial expressions. After wrinkles appear, they often appear old or sullen. Unfortunately, creams are not strong against wrinkles. Botox is much more successful in smoothing the skin and reducing wrinkles. Botox injections reduce expression lines and can delay their formation.

All wrinkle injection methods are outpatient and that means you can leave the clinic immediately after the treatment. While injections can be performed without the need for anesthesia at our Botox Vancouver, local or superficial anesthesia is quite certainly possible.
