Botox® - Cosmetic
Benefits/How It Works
Smoother, more youthful-looking skin is now possible without surgery thanks to BOTOX® Cosmetic. Victoria, BC women and men have discovered BOTOX® can dramatically reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles such as frown lines, crow's feet and forehead lines. BOTOX® can also raise the brows, soften lines around the lips or neck and raise the corners of the mouth.
BOTOX® can achieve significant improvement in dynamic wrinkles - those caused by repeated facial movements such as frowning and squinting. Although BOTOX® does work by relaxing muscles, you shouldn't worry about looking "frozen." At Cosmedica in Victoria, BC, BOTOX® treatments are performed by dermatologist Dr. Lupin. Most patients find their results look naturally rejuvenated and their facial expressions are not impeded.

A tiny amount of BOTOX® is injected into the muscles that create wrinkles. This temporarily blocks nerve impulses from reaching the area, allowing muscles to relax and the skin to lie smooth.
Treatment with BOTOX® is quick and comfortable, usually taking less than 15 minutes. You can get back to your usual routine right away - no downtime is required. You may see some mild swelling and bruising, but these effects should fade quickly.
