Vancouver Botox™ Cosmetic
Botox™ Cosmetic, the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure in North America, is an injectable treatment derived from a purified protein that targets facial muscles, softening expression lines, and giving the face and skin a natural, refreshed appearance. The most common treatment areas include the frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines that run across the forehead, and crow’s feet around the outer eyes. Botox™ has been licensed in Canada since 1990, and Health Canada approved since 2001. This simple procedure, administered by a qualified healthcare professional, takes 10-15 minutes and lasts up to 4 months. Xeomin™ Cosmetic also available.
