Botulinum and Fillers administered in a clinical setting in Calgary, AB
Countless Canadian men and women want to have smoother, firmer, younger-looking skin. Many are choosing nonsurgical, minimally invasive injectable solutions. At Vanguard Medical & Aesthetic Clinic in Calgary, AB, the injection of soft tissue fillers is administered by medically trained professionals.
What is Botulinum?
Each time you frown, squint or purse your lips, underlying muscles contract drawing surface skin into creases. As those expressions are repeated many times, skin loses its ability to recover and lines become deeply etched.
Botulinum is a neurotoxin. Injected into skin, it interrupts chemical signals from nerves that activate muscle contractions. As muscles remain in a relaxed state, skin can smooth out. Injections can improve horizontal folds on the forehead and vertical lines between eyebrows. This treatment is ideal for crow’s feet, and it softens lines radiating from lips. In an internet search, you can find before and after images showing other areas where the product and treatment are used effectively.
For nearly two decades, the aesthetic use of Botulinum has had an excellent safety record in the hands of qualified medical professionals. Side effects of injections include mild redness, bruising, or tenderness at injection sites. The doctor will explain other potentially serious side effects before you decide upon treatment.
This is not just a wrinkle treatment. We also provide injections for migraines – a series of injections on the forehead and neck that helps to reduce the frequency of headaches.
What are dermal fillers?
A filler is a gel formulation containing hyaluronic acid or other ingredients that add volume to the skin. These products are injected:
- As under-eye filler
- To fill wrinkles
- For flattening hollows in cheeks and temples
- To restore lost volume in the upper cheek, which lifts the lower portion of the face
- To define lips and smooth periorbital lines (search the internet for “lip fillers before and after” to see real-life results)
- For stimulation of collagen production, which helps skin stay naturally thick and taut
