Have you noticed the beginnings of fine lines and wrinkles? While developing laughter lines and frown lines is perfectly natural, it can be prematurely ageing. Botox® is a safe, non-surgical treatment that will help reduce the effects of ageing, smoothing out wrinkles and creating a natural yet refreshed appearance.

What Is Botox and How Does It Work?

Botox® is a purified natural protein and it works by blocking the nerve impulses that normally cause muscles to contract, creating unwanted wrinkles. It is injected into the facial muscles, reducing muscle contractions and creating a more even and smoother appearance. Treatment can be particularly effective for fine lines and wrinkles that have only just appeared.

Why Choose a Vancouver Dentist for Botox?

Your dentist is the ideal person to see for this treatment as they have studied facial anatomy as part of their dental training and know exactly how each muscle works. With this in-depth knowledge, your dentist can use precisely the right amounts of Botox to create the very best and most natural effects. Dr. Baharaloo has treated numerous patients here at Vancity Dental and knows exactly how to administer this treatment to achieve the desired results.

Will I Look Natural after Treatment?

By skilfully using only minimal amounts of Botox, we can create a look that is very natural so there is no need to worry that your facial muscles will be frozen. It generally takes a week or so to see the full effects of treatment and results should last for several months before they need to be refreshed.

Can Botox Be Used in Any Other Way?

Botox can be very effective in treating a gummy smile. This condition can sometimes be caused by an overactive muscle in the upper lip resulting in the upper lip being pulled too far up. Relaxing this muscle creates a more natural and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Botox can also be useful in treating jaw pain due to clenching and grinding, allowing the muscles affected by this problem to relax.

Is Treatment Safe?

Here at Vancity Dental we only use high quality Botox administered by your fully-trained Vancouver dentist. Treatment is given using very fine needles creating minimal discomfort and there is no downtime.
