Botox in Kelowna
Over the years, Botox treatment has grown in popularity. When you squint or frown, your muscles contract, and combined with age, lifestyle, and environmental factors this leads wrinkles. The use of Botox in Kelowna is a preventative and immediate solution in dealing with the signs of ageing. It involves using anti-wrinkle proteins that prevent the muscles from contracting & forming wrinkles.

Botox TM/Xeomin TM
Botulinum Toxin Type A treatment is used for frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet. Reducing the function of specific facial muscles can treat prominent forehead creases, brow furrows or eye lines (crow’s feet). The Neurotoxins (Botox™ and Xeomin™) are sterile, purified proteins produced from the bacteria, Clostridium botulinum in the laboratory. Neurotoxins injected in small amounts into facial muscles bind to the nerve endings supplying the muscle and prevent nerve impulses from travelling to the muscle. When injected into a muscle, it weakens or paralyzes the muscle around the area injected for a typical period of several months. The resultant weakening or paralyzing effect on the facial muscle temporarily eliminates previous skin creasing, and new skin creasing is avoided. Botox may take several days to have its effect, and the effect typically lasts 3-6 months, in most individuals, before full muscle movement returns. At that point, the treatment may be repeated as desired.*

BOTOX Cosmetic TM.
This is the first treatment used in Canada for treating Frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet. Botox Cosmetics TM targets what are known as dynamic wrinkles, which are caused by repeated muscular contractions, such as frowning and squinting. It is an injectable treatment derived from a purified protein and works by relaxing the muscles that cause these dynamic wrinkles, giving your face a more relaxed and refreshed appearance. In addition, treatment is so quick and easy that you can often have it done over lunch. The results from a BOTOX COSMETIC TM treatment are natural-looking and will give you a refreshed appearance. Botox Cosmetic has been clinically proven to last up to four months. Actual treatment results may vary.
Botox Cosmetics can be combined with Juvederm facial fillers to treat volume loss and folds in the mid to lower face creating the SoftLift.*

Our Botox treatment in Kelowna is minimally invasive, so you won’t have any downtime. There are several things you can do after your treatment to achieve optimal results, such as:
- Avoid alcohol: You should wait a day before consuming alcohol after the treatment. Alcohol can have anti-inflammatory effects, which can cause bruises around the injected area.
- Avoid skin procedures: Skin procedures such as dermal fillers, facials and exfoliating scrubs within the first 24 hours of your treatment can displace the Botox before it gets a chance to settle.
- Avoid sun exposure: Exposure to the sun can cause your skin to flush, which increases bruising. We recommend staying out of the skin after 48 hours of your treatment.
These are some of the aftercare tips we recommend to our clients. To learn more, please make an appointment with us.
