Get BOTOX in Kelowna
Dr. De Pieri brings years of experience to his anti-aging clinic. At The De Pieri Clinic, we support patients by providing a comfortable, secure facility. One of the ways we combat age is by offering BOTOX in Kelowna.
What is BOTOX?
BOTOX is a popular anti-aging treatment that can revitalize the face.* It is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that requires no down time. Cosmetic BOTOX was approved for use in Canada more than 15 years ago and Dr. Pieri has treated patients with BOTOX for more than a decade. BOTOX is actually a protein complex that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, which is used in very small injected doses focused on the lines that make you look older.
How does BOTOX work?
BOTOX smooths out your skin by blocking nerves that cause contractions in your facial muscles. This fast treatment works by temporarily relaxing muscles that cause wrinkles in the upper third of your face or around your mouth. This relaxation can give skin a more youthful, radiant look.* Areas of the face frequently treated with BOTOX include the following:
Besides treating wrinkled skin, we inject BOTOX into the armpits of our patients to stop excessive sweating. BOTOX can also be helpful when inserted into pressure points around the forehead to treat migraines.
What is the Procedure Like?
BOTOX is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that will have you back to your daily activities in minutes. You can literally come in on your lunch break for an injection and head straight back to work. The procedure takes about 10–20 minutes in total.
Immediately following treatment, do not engage in vigorous physical activity. Expect minor bruising in the days following your appointment. Of course, you want your treatment with BOTOX in Kelowna from a physician-led medical staff. You can always contact The De Pieri Clinic with any questions and concerns.
How Long Does BOTOX Last?
Every person reacts differently to BOTOX. Some patients have deep wrinkles and strong facial muscles that are more difficult to penetrate. You may not see results the same day, but you should see optimal results within three weeks.*
If you want your results to last as long as possible, refrain from smoking and use creams approved by Dr. De Pieri. On average, most people see the effects of their BOTOX injections last three to six months; although patient experience may vary, most people can expect longer lasting effects with greater frequency of treatment.*
