Did you know that Botox cosmetic, a worldwide phenomenon, was pioneered by two Canadian physicians, right here in British Columbia? As a specialist Dermatologist with over 20 years’ experience and having performed thousands of treatments, Dr. Lupin’s additional training in Neurology and work with the originators of cosmetic Botox has been invaluable in helping him provide best results. As a Preceptor, Dr. Lupin has trained many specialist physicians on advanced techniques and enjoys advancing greater understanding and optimized outcomes to help his physician colleagues. He has lectured throughout Canada as well as in Paris and Monaco and uses his artistic sense and particular knowledge of facial anatomy to provide natural results.
Key to success is that results should look balanced and natural. An appreciation for our individual differences and subtle nuances can make a big difference in achieving best results.
Botox works by relaxing muscles that can lead to a stressed look. Common areas treated are the frown area, forehead lines, crows’ feet lines around the eyes, bunny lines on the nose, lifting of the corners of the mouth, lifting of the neck and browlift.
While the brand, Botox, has been around the longest, Dysport and Xeomin are two other brands. There may be subtle differences so best to consult with Dr. Lupin if you would like to know more and which product might suit you the best.
Most patients comment on how relaxed and refreshed they look and feel, and that they were pleasantly surprised that the treatment was virtually painless. Our patients return two to three times a year to maintain their great results.
