Botox is an injectable anti wrinkle treatment that works by relaxing the facial muscles that cause those lines and wrinkles to form over time. With over 10 years of experience Dr. Denton is one of Vancouver’s most experienced doctors utilizing Botox. Botox is derived from a purified protein, and is most commonly used to smooth and prevent frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines on the forehead, and crow’s feet around the eyes. It may also be used to define the jaw line, or create a subtle eyebrow lift. Botox is intended to enhance the way you look by giving your face a more relaxed and refreshed appearance, thus making it the most popular cosmetic procedure in North America.
Botox has been in use for over 30 years, and although it is most commonly known as a wrinkle treatment, it also effectively manages other medical conditions Cosmetic Botox treatments take approximately 10 to 15 minutes to perform. At Dr. Denton’s Vancouver based clinic, he uses an individual fine needle for each injection site so that there is very little discomfort associated with the procedure. In fact, one may resume normal activities immediately following treatment. Anti wrinkle results generally last up to four months, however, with repeated treatments the natural, youthful effects may begin to last longer. Many of Dr. Denton’s regular clients only require Cosmetic Botox every 6 months to retain their wrinkle reduction.
