Everything You Want To Know About Our Botox Cosmetic Procedure

Have you found yourself becoming more self conscious about your appearance and it is affecting your self esteem.

Botox is currently the number 1 cosmetic procedure in Canada and Serene Radiance is the leader when it comes to Botox procedures in Alberta - so far we have done almost 600.
In this post we are going to address some of the questions you may have about wrinkles, Botox and the way Serene Radiance can help you slow down the signs of aging.
What Is Botox?
Botox was first cleared for use in Canada for patients with frown lines in April 2001 and since then has been used successfully for over 14 years in both cosmetic and medical treatments making it one of the most common and safest procedures performed in Edmonton today.
What Cause Wrinkles?
The majority of wrinkles is typically caused by overexposure to the sun or from using the same facial muscles again and again. For example, those vertical lines that people get between their eyebrows are due to squinting or frowning and the repeated muscle action, along with the effects of the sun, can leave deep vertical lines that are present even when they are resting. Smoking, dehydration, some medications and a number of other factors can cause wrinkles to develop.
As we age, our skin's ability to protect itself from damage also diminishes as we age. Over time, wrinkles, creases and lines form on our skin. A person's genetic makeup also influences how many wrinkles we develop, and when and where wrinkles start to appear.
There are some people who welcome wrinkles and believes it gives them the appearance of wisdom, but most people are unhappy with their wrinkles as they start to appear and believe they add years to their appearance and make them appear tired and worried.
What Is Botox Treatment Like?
Botox cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is the FDA-approved prescription product that is administered using a few tiny injections into the overactive muscles that create frown lines and crow's feet. The Botox solution, then helps these muscles relax, allowing the facial wrinkles smooth out giving a more youthful appearance.
The procedure itself is quick, non-surgical and only mildly invasive and typically takes around ten minutes. A needle containing a few drops of the Botox cosmetic is injected into the muscles that are causing frown lines to develop allowing them to relax.
When the needle is inserted there may be some slight discomfort, the sensation may feel like getting a bug bite but you will be able to continue your daily activities directly after your treatment.
What Result Can I Expect From Having Botox?
The objective of having one of Serene Radiance's Botox treatments is to give you a more youthful appearance without making you look like you have had work done. When performed properly, our Botox cosmetic procedures aren’t noticeable and you will naturally look like you have a more smooth, youthful appearance.
How Long Does The Botox Treatment Last?
After the Botox treatment has taken place, the muscles typically start to relax within a few days, but it can take two weeks to become more effective. After 2-4 months the effects of the Botox treatment start to wear off and then you will need another treatment. The great thing with our Botox treatments is the lack of downtime required and the fact nobody will know you have had anything done except you will look more youthful, radiant and happier with your appearance.
