At Canyon Laser & Skincare in North Vancouver, our team provides Botox® treatment services for clients looking to improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
What is Botox?
Botox is a proven and effective treatment for softening wrinkles. Repeated muscular contractions such as frowning and squinting form lines known as dynamic wrinkles or “lines in motion”. Botox works by relaxing the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, giving the face a more relaxed and youthful appearance.
Botox is the fastest-growing cosmetic procedure, used by hundreds of thousands of women and men worldwide to temporarily reduce and soften crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead wrinkles, upper lip pucker lines and neck bands.
How It Works?
When administed by trained practitioners like our staff here at Canyon Laser Skin Care in North Vancouver, Botox injections take just a few short minutes. Botox is injected into a specific muscle, blocking the signal from the nerve to that muscle. As a result, the skin in that area looks smooth and less wrinkled, while the rest of the face remains unaffected, so that normal expression can be maintained. The wrinkle-smoothing result can last 3 – 4 months. Botox is a simple, non-invasive and painless treatment with no post-treatment downtime.
