Did you know that Botox was discovered right here in the Lower Mainland? Dr. Jean & Alastair Carruthers stumbled upon the positive effects of Botox in the late 1980’s, and the rest is wrinkle-free history!
For those of you who are new to the concept of Botox, we wanted to help you understanding how it works, and the benefits it offers in maintaining or regaining a youthful appearance.
How Botox Works
When you smile or frown, creases and furrows are created in various places on the face where the facial muscles are contracting. Botox prevents these muscles from contracting due to the a neuro-chemical it contains, which helps to keep the muscle in a relaxed state, allowing for smoother, younger looking skin.
Where Botox Works
The most common areas for Botox injections are: frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet, as well as lines around the mouth and on the neck.
Further to preventing premature wrinkling from happening, Botox also aids in the natural process of cell renewal. This means that after your first few Botox treatments are administered every 3- 4 months, you will find that you can go for longer periods before needing another treatment, with increased improvements in the skin progressively.
Additional Benefits to Botox
- It is a non-surgical solution to wrinkle reduction
- Both men and women can experience a flawless complexion with zero down-time
- It can be used in multiple places, for multiple concerns – including: the forehead, neck, around the mouth, crows feet around the eyes, and wrinkles on the neck
- It can give you a “natural” brow lift over time, making your face look younger and more refreshed or awake
