Reducing Lines and Wrinkles With BOTOX
Wrinkles are formed when muscles in the face move, and neuromodulators are designed to combat the movement that causes wrinkles and lines to occur. During the treatment, very tiny amounts of BOTOX® are injected into specific facial muscles to temporarily weaken them. Once relaxed, the skin is able to recover from the repeated motion, and wrinkles and lines become much less pronounced. Cosmetic physicians have been using BOTOX for over two decades, and it is the leading option for reducing facial lines and wrinkles. It can even be used in the treatment of excessive sweating and migraines.
Customized Wrinkle Treatments
Each customized treatment plan begins with a complimentary consultation with Dr. van Aardt in our medi spa on Spring Garden Road in Halifax. As President of the Canadian Association of Aesthetic Medicine, Dr. van Aardt has been practicing cosmetic medicine for decades, and has designed state-of-the-art approaches to BOTOX treatments that provide subtle, natural-looking results. With no downtime, you’ll be able to leave your treatment and return to your previously scheduled activities.
One average, each treatment lasts up to three to four months, and you’ll notice the first effects three to five days after treatment. For most people, it can take up to two weeks to see your results. In some cases, several treatments are required for the muscles to fully relax. As BOTOX therapy is not a permanent solution, your customized plan will outline the recommended frequency of treatments depending on your goals, lifestyle and how deep your wrinkles are.
With regularly scheduled treatments, it is possible for the effects to last for extended periods, and even for wrinkles to disappear completely. In cases where wrinkles are quite deep or have taken years to form, it can take time to see results. For patients concerned about avoiding the inevitable signs of aging, it is possible that using BOTOX early can help prevent lines and wrinkles from forming.
Anti-Aging Packages to Enhance Wrinkle Treatments
BOTOX addresses the cause of wrinkles—repeated movements—and works well in conjunction with other treatments, like dermal fillers and radio frequency energy treatments. Dr. van Aardt has developed several anti-aging treatments that combine BOTOX with other services to help you rediscover your youthful glow.
- By combining dermal fillers with BOTOX, our Soft-Lift treatment helps to soften the appearance of fine lines while restoring lost volume.
- Dr. van Aardt’s signature procedure is Rejuva-Lift. This option uses the dermal fillers and BOTOX included in the Soft-Lift, and adds radiofrequency treatment to increase collagen production and tighten the skin.
