Vancouver B________ Clinic
Health Canada Does not permit us to use the name of any prescription drug in advertising
Typically used for wrinkles of the brows (frown lines) and around the eyes, B_______ is made from the same toxin which causes botulism poisoning, but used in tiny doses. This has been used successfully for years to fine tune the results of eye squint surgery, and is now applied for cosmetic uses. Injection results in temporary (three to six months) paralysis of the injected muscles. However, it has no effect on longstanding established wrinkles where the skin has been deeply creased.
Side Effects and Safety
As with any medication, potential side effects of B_______ do exist, and vary according to injection site, dose, frequency of injections, and the injector’s expertise. Most side effects such as pain, tenderness, or bruising at the injection siteare temporary and occur within a few days after treatment.
B________ injections have not been shown to permanently change your muscles or cause any long-term problems. The side effects of B_______ injections are usually exactly what the therapy is supposed to cause: muscle weakness. It’s crucial to inject into the right muscle with the appropriate dose. Finding an experienced injector is of utmost importance, as many complications are the result of misplaced injections or too-large doses.
Our Vancouver B_______ Clinic is administered by Susan Mackenzie, RN. Sue’s gentle, careful manner, and rigoutous nursing experience with injections is a definite advantage over the hurried and often less expert doctor who has simply taken up B______ for extra cash.
