At New Image Cosmetic in Edmonton, Alberta, we offer customized treatments with Botox®, the popular cosmetic injectable designed to help patients address cosmetic and medical concerns. When you schedule your treatments at our office, Dr. Poon will personally administer this injectable. He will use his 20 years of experience with injectables, and as an Allergan® trainer, to ensure you achieve your desired results.
What Is Botox®?
Botox® is a neuromodulator that contains an active ingredient called botulinum type A. This highly purified protein is a neurotoxin that works on the muscular level to accomplish different aging-related and cosmetic goals. It can also treat medical conditions by alleviating specific symptoms to improve quality of life. This injectable provides a temporary solution for cosmetic and medical needs and delivers long-lasting results.
We can use it to smooth expression lines in three FDA-approved areas of the face: the outer corners of the eyes as a treatment for crow’s feet, the forehead to treat forehead lines, and the area between the eyebrows to smooth frown lines.
A Treatment for Medical Conditions
We can also use Botox® to address and treat the symptoms of certain medical conditions, including hyperhidrosis and migraine pain. Hyperhidrosis is a condition that affects many men and women and causes extreme sweating. We can use the injectable’s active ingredients to block the sweat glands from overproducing sweat. Results post-treatment typically last six months.
Migraine pain is another condition we can treat with this injectable. Injections into specific points of the head and neck can relax certain muscles while blocking pain signals, reducing migraine pain long-term. Patients typically need two treatments with twelve weeks between each to achieve the desired results.
There are many benefits to beginning a customized treatment plan with Botox®. Of all the cosmetic injectables available for use, this one has been around the longest, is safe, and is FDA-approved to help patients achieve their desired appearance. Some of the primary treatment benefits include the following.
- The treatment is safe
- It’s fast-acting, and results appear within days
- Results are long-lasting and deliver smoother skin for three to four months
- It can smooth the most common expression lines on the upper half of the face
- It can address both cosmetic and medical concerns during a single treatment
Once we confirm that you are a good candidate for Botox®, we can move forward with the treatment process so that you can enjoy all the benefits of using this injectable to treat cosmetic and medical-related concerns.
Injections are quick, so you can expect a quick treatment process. You can even schedule your appointment during your lunch break if necessary. You’ll be able to resume your typical daily activities once your appointment is over, but you will need to follow some post-treatment care instructions.
After your treatment is over, you must avoid strenuous workouts and activities in environments that raise your body temperature. We will provide you with a complete list of aftercare instructions so that you know how to care for the injection sites after your treatment to ensure the best results.
You can expect optimal and natural-looking results after your injectable treatment at New Image Cosmetic. Dr. Poon has the advanced training to administer this injectable with the exact amount of product necessary to help you achieve the desired effect. You can have confidence in moving forward with this treatment process, knowing that your injections will be provided by an experienced and recognized trainer for Allergan®.
Botox® treatments are a good option for adults in good health with cosmetic or medical concerns that qualify them for treatment. Adults who are not allergic to the active ingredient, are not pregnant or nursing, and understand that regular treatments are necessary for long-term results make good treatment candidates.
An initial consultation with Dr. Poon is the first step in the treatment process. During this consultation, we will ask you some questions about your medical history and about any experience you’ve had with neuromodulators to ensure that this treatment is right for you. Then we can design your treatment plan to treat cosmetic concerns, medical concerns, or a combination of both.
