Botox Wrinkle Treatment in Vancouver Downtown

At Limelight Wellness Clinic

What exactly is Botox?

Botox is a temporary solution for improving the appearance of any lines that exist on the forehead, between the brows, and it also immensely helps with reducing the look of crow’s feet which are common in adults. Botox is a substance that gets injected into the facial muscles using a very fine needle, and this helps to relax those muscles to reduce undesired wrinkles and fine lines. The non-invasive treatment only takes a few minutes to receive, and there is no downtime, so it won’t affect how you live your life. The components in Botox essentially blocks the signal between nerves and muscles, and as a result, it reduces the ability of contraction – when wrinkles occur. Botox is the world’s market-leading product of its kind, and millions of people have grown to really like and trust the treatment.

 

How does Botox actually work?

 Botox works beneath the surface of the skin to target any sort of underlying muscle activity that causes expression lines, and crow’s feet that visually display over the course of time. When our face moves, our nerves release acetylcholine – a neurotransmitter chemical. This neurotransmitter binds itself to receptors within the muscle which makes it contract. Botox actively works by binding to the acetylcholine receptors to block the signal between the nerves and the muscles. When a muscle is injected with Botox, the binding doesn’t take place which reduces muscle activity and the contraction of the muscles is temporarily prevented. This whole internal process under the skin takes around two days to occur after the muscle injection happens, and significant results are typically noticed in a week to two weeks.

Botox Wrinkle Treatments

Botox is a non-surgical way to improve the look of your face. It works by blocking the nerves that contract muscles, softening the appearance of wrinkles. It is a relatively affordable cosmetic procedure and when compared to other procedures Botox downtimes are minimal.

What to expect?

In the hands of an expert injector, Botox treatments have high satisfaction rates because the treatment really works. 5 – 7 days after your treatment, you will notice that when you try to frown, you won’t be able to as much as before.

Where can improve?

Frown Lines, Forehead Wrinkles, Crow’s Fee, Smoker’s Line, Marionette Lines, Bunny Lines, Brow Lift and Gummy Smile.

 

Recovery and result:

Most patients begin to see treated lines and wrinkles diminish within a few days after treatment. You should see your smoother skin tone last for 3 to 4 months before another treatment is required. After several treatments, many patients notice that they can go longer between visits and still enjoy smooth skin texture.

Is it safe?

Side effects are generally minimal – and some may not experience any at all. There might be occasional light bruising or redness around the area of injection.

Botox FAQ’s
What can I expect to see for results?
Results vary from patient to patient, but results can be noticeable as early as in a day or two, and the maximum effect is most apparent around the one month mark. The benefits are usually enjoyed for between three to six months, and there are various factors which determine how long a patient will see results. Some of these factors include: age, diet, skin condition, level of sun damage, facial structure, amount of expression, and any past experience with Botox or other wrinkle relaxers also play a part.
How safe is this treatment?
When administered by a well trained and experienced injector, this treatment is quite safe. We can’t stress enough that choosing a high-quality clinic is crucially important when deciding to use Botox from both a results and safety perspective.
