Botox or Dysport Injections in North Vancouver, BC
What is Botox?
A purified protein is sourced from the Clostridium botulinum toxin type A that blocks specific nerve impulses and thus paralyzes the muscles in the injected area. Botox is the registered name of this protein. So, when you get a Botox cosmetic treatment in Vancouver, the release of a certain chemical—acetylcholine—is blocked. As the muscles in the injected area can no longer contract, the frown lines or forehead lines become less visible.
This minimally invasive procedure causes the facial muscles to relax. Thus, all the wrinkles are evened out, giving the facial skin a radiant, youthful appearance. The Botox injection cost, on average, is $550 per session.
What is Dysport?
This works in the same manner as Botox and delivers equally effective results. But there are a few differences. Dysport has been approved by the FDA to only reduce the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines or frown lines.
The average total cost of Dysport is $450 per session. So, it is comparatively cheaper than a Botox treatment. However, the results after a Dysport treatment appear sooner than those after a Botox injection treatment in Vancouver.
lasting 3-4 months. Best seen with multiple treatments and maintenance.
Botox Treatments for Cosmetic Purposes
Botox and Wrinkle Reduction
Whether it’s forehead lines, frown lines, or crow's feet (lines around the eyes), Botox relaxes the muscles and reduces the visible signs of aging. This is an effective treatment for both Dynamic Wrinkles and Fine Lines. Dynamic wrinkles occur due to the movement of facial muscles while smiling, laughing, and squinting.
These wrinkles are usually on the forehead, around the lips, and between the eyebrows. With age and exposure to the sun, the rate of collagen production in the skin reduces, which causes the formation of Fine Lines. You will start seeing visible results just seven days after your treatment.
The results of Botox treatment in Vancouver last between three to six months. The cost of Botox treatment for wrinkle reduction ranges between $200 and $800 per session, sometimes more, depending on the number of injections that are administered on you and the facial areas where you get the treatment done.
Botox Hair Treatment
With age, the hair on your head loses its volume, and its quality also deteriorates. So, just like skin, your hair too undergoes the effects of aging. But, here’s the thing: Botox for hair works by filling in individual hair fibers to add more volume to your hair and make them smooth.
So, Botox treatment for hair doesn’t contain botulinum toxin—the primary ingredient of Botox. The name is given based on the similar fashion in which the product works. Hair Botox is massaged on every strand from root to the tips. The mixture is left for about three hours on wet hair.
The process is basically a deep conditioning procedure that coats every strand of hair with a filler, like keratin. It fills any broken or thin hair follicle and thus repairs frizzy, damaged hair with split ends. The treatment brings back the volume and luster of your hair and gives them a straightened look.
Botox hair treatment price is about $300 if you’re getting the treatment done in a salon. You will see the results immediately once the hair is dried out.
Botox Lip Flip in Vancouver
A lip flip is a quick, in-office cosmetic procedure that is best recommended for those who want to get fuller lips without the use of dermal fillers. Botox is injected into the Cupid’s Bow and the corners of your mouth. As a result, the muscles around your lip relax.
Thus, the upper lip area inside your mouth flips upward & outward to give your lip a fuller appearance. Other individuals who benefit from this treatment include those who have a thin upper lip or a gummy smile (and want to make the gums less visible).
The entire procedure takes about 20 minutes. As the procedure isn’t extremely painful, in some cases, the doctor may not use anesthesia before administering the treatment. The specialist will inject Botox into the corners and middle of your upper lip. You will start seeing in a few days and will see the best results about two weeks after the procedure.
Botox Brow Lift in Vancouver
In this treatment, Botox is injected in the area just under and near the eyebrows to treat frown lines. As the muscles relax, the height of your eyebrows becomes elevated. This happens because the forehead muscles between the brows get pulled up.
A Botox eyebrow lift in Vancouver is best recommended for those who have sagging skin near the eyebrows. The expert first applies an anesthetic cream and then injects Botox into the brow area. There is minimal discomfort, and the entire procedure is done in only a few minutes. You will start seeing the results within seven days. The Botox brow lift cost is about $800 for one session.
However, note that a brow Botox lift in Vancouver doesn’t treat frown lines permanently. For the results to last long, you would need to come for a session after every few months. With the administration of more and more injections over time as part of a chemical brow lift with Botox in Vancouver, the muscles underlying the eyebrows wear down. Thus, you get even better anti-aging results.
Botox Acne Treatment in Vancouver
Sebaceous glands have similar receptors for acetylcholine. And Botox staves off acne-causing bacteria by slowing down the rate of oil production by these glands. As such, Botox helps prevent acne breakouts.
It also reduces acne scarring as injecting it relaxes the flared-up skin around an existing acne scar. Sometimes, dermatologists inject Botox near the scar to release the tensed muscles from puckering the scar. The results start showing after a few days or weeks and last for about four months.
In a typical Botox acne treatment in Vancouver, a minimal amount of the neurotoxin is injected into those areas of the face where there is maximum oil production. As the acetylcholine—that is released by nerves into the muscle—is blocked and paralyzed, the blemishes get minimized.
Botox Treatments for Therapeutic Purposes
Botox for Migraines
Botox cures migraine headaches as it blocks the neurotransmitters carrying pain signals from your brain. It stops the chemicals from getting to the nerve endings around your neck and head. For best results, it is recommended that you get several shots of Botox around your neck & head, once every 12 weeks.
During the procedure, you get an equal number of shots on every side of your head. In total, you will probably need around 30 to 40 shots. Consult the specialist about the number of sessions you need as per your condition. If you have localized migraine pain, the chances are that you may need more shots in that area.
You will start seeing results within 21 days after your first treatment. As far as the cost is concerned, in general, around 155 units of Botox will be used in every session. So, the total cost will range between $300 to $600. However, it could even be more.
Botox Treatment for Hyperhidrosis
Hyperhidrosis is a condition wherein the affected individual sweats profusely despite the weather conditions not being hot or humid. This abnormal sweating often causes the person’s clothing to get soaked or for them to drip sweat. For people with this condition, regular antiperspirants don’t work well.
So, if you’re one such individual, or if your sweating fails to subside even with prescription antiperspirants, you are the ideal candidate for Botox treatment. In people with this condition, the nerves signaling the sweat glands are overactive.
So, when Botox injections are administered directly into the bodily area where you sweat profusely, the overactive nerves become paralyzed. The treatment cost varies, depending on the area where you live & your circumstances. But as a rough estimate, the typical cost for both underarms is $1,000.
Botox Treatment for Cervical Dystonia
This is a movement disorder that is also referred to as “spasmodic torticollis.” It is a painful condition in which your neck muscles involuntarily contract. This causes your head to turn or twist into uncomfortable positions.
Botox injections work to treat this condition by blocking the chemical signals for the muscles to contract to reach the nerve endings. The approximate cost per treatment for Cervical Dystonia is $1500.
Other Therapeutic Botox Treatments
This happens due to an imbalance in or loosening of the muscles that position the eye. After the area is numbed, the needle is placed in position, and the patient is asked to move the eye so that the muscles contract. The specialist then injects a little quantity of Botox into the eye muscle for 30 seconds. This stops the muscle from contracting and treats the lazy eye. In the same way, Botox works to treat eye twitching.
Certain neurological conditions like Cerebral Palsy are caused by abnormal brain development. This impacts an individual’s ability to control his or her muscles. Botox injections help relax these contracted muscles.
Administration of Botox injections reduces the symptoms of urinary incontinence due to an overactive bladder. The severity of this condition ranges from the occasional leaking of urine when coughing or sneezing, to feeling a sudden & intense urge to urinate so that you don't get to a toilet in time.
