"I had Botox and it's great. It's so natural. I love it." -Satisfied Customer
Botox® Cosmetic treatments have been used by medical doctors for various medical conditions for over twenty years. It is an increasingly popular option for reducing the appearance of wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes and neck bands. The Fredericton Wellness Clinic is proud to offer medical aesthetic services by Dr Renier Van Aardt, one of Canada's leading injectors of Botox and Juvederm.
During a treatment with Dr Van Aardt, tiny amounts of purified protein are injected into specific facial muscles responsible for the creation of facial lines and wrinkles. When the protein is injected into the muscles surrounding a particular area, those muscles can no longer contract. Basically, the protein blocks the signals that would normally tell your muscles to contract. So the wrinkles in that area often referred to as frown lines, temporarily go away.
The Botox® Cosmetic treatment starts to take effect within three to five days. It takes two weeks before you see the full effect and it could require more than one treatment before optimal results can be seen. Botox® Cosmetic therapy is temporary and therefore requires repeated treatments. In the beginning, benefits of treatment last for about 3 to 4 months. Repeat treatments will result in longer lasting effects of up to six months with improved smoothing of wrinkles.
