What is Botox?

A prescription medicine that is skillfully injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, neck creases and liplines. Therapeutically,it can be used to treat migraines, excessive sweating, Bell’s Palsy, facial twitching and jaw pain.

Is it safe?

Botox is safer than aspirin. It is a purified protein that your body naturally metabolizes over time. It is now the most common aesthetic treatment in the world with millions treated annually.

How can I ensure the best results?

Obtain a thorough consultation and a personalized treatment plan from an experienced health care injector.

What can be done for the deep lines that cause an old, tired, sad and often angry appearance?

As we age our facial bones recede, our supportive tissues deflate causing descent. This may result in deep lines creating a look of tiredness, sadness and even an angry expression.

A comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation will include diet and exercise, skin care, laser, Botox and dermal fillers. Historically the deep lines between the nose and cheeks and the deep lines below the corners of the mouth were treated by dermal filler injections into the lines.

My approach is to use dermal filler (Juvederm) to re-volumize areas of the face to their natural proportion. These proportions are based on the golden rule of Phi used by DiVinci and Michelangelo, the great sculptors and artists of the Renaissance. By restoring the natural proportion of the face, facial lines are softened and the result is a restoration of your natural beauty. Dermal filler can now be placed safely and comfortably using a cannula technique. This greatly reduces the risk of bleeds, bruising, swelling and pain previously experienced by needles. Our patients express they feel comfortable and con dent to carry on with their daily activities.

What options are available for skin resurfacing?

Facial scarring from acne, injury, surgery, deep widepores, rough texture, sun damaged skin, wrinkles, as well as skin laxity around the eye lids, face and neckare unfortunate common conditions. I have treated these conditions for more then 10 years with excellent results using a combination of skin care, Botox, Dermal filler, IPL, and ablative lasers. Fully ablative lasers have considerable risks and extensive recovery time. The development of fraxel, non-ablative, CO2 lasers in the past 10 years has significantly reduced risk and shortened recovery time to seven days. Unfortunately, seven days of healing remains a significant barrier for most people considering facial resurfacing.

Venus Viva (Nano fractional, radio frequency) is a revolutionary treatment option for those considering facial resurfacing.

View Laser was the first clinic in B.C. to offer Viva Nano RF. Check the September 9th edition of "Ask The Expert" for more information.

What treatments are available for fine lines, wrinkles, thinning skin and brown spots?

The Venus Viva uses Nano Fractionated Radio Frequency to address these concerns with very minimal downtime.

What are patients saying about this treatment?

Results of our first 32 patients have been submitted for publication to the Journal of Dermatology. Our survey indicated 100% satisfaction, with 88% of patients stating excellence in all the categories of results, ease of treatment, comfort and recovery time.

What can I do about the brown spots on my skin?

Treatment plans for brown spots must be personalized based on medical diagnoses by a physician skin care specialist. This is because brown spots represent a multitude of skin conditions some of which could be due to an early skin cancer. Accurate diagnosis is also of critical importance. Although most laser treatments will greatly improve brown spots, there remains a signi cant risk of causing conditions such as melasma to worsen or post inflammatory skin conditions to develop. Use of specialized photographic equipment with polarized filters can further assist the physician in accurately assessing the severity and cause of skin conditions. Physician grade skin care, IPL, CO2 and Radio Frequency will provide excellent results for most brown spots. Treating brown spots is not as simple as it may seem. Consult with an expert.

How can I get my skin "Holiday Ready" with no social downtime?

At View Laser, our Skin Experts give these suggestions.

Book a Hydrafacial to have instant radiant looking skin. This treatment deeply cleans, extracts, exfoliates, infuses antioxidants plus hydration to nourish and protect. We can treat men and women of all age groups and skin types, plus target specific skin conditions. The Hydrafacial is often referred to as "The Red Carpet" choice for treatment to prepare for any special occasion or for ongoing skin health.

When applying makeup, a mineral base formulation like Jane Iredale is the optimal choice, as it contains antioxidants, is anti-inflammatory and helps to protect against UV light damage. This application can be done directly after a Hydrafacial. Ask us about our Holiday Gift Specials that include these two services for beautiful, glowing results.

How do I keep my skin healthy over the holidays?

As the skin is a live organ, it is vulnerable to many stresses caused by heat, UV light, hormones, medication, lack of sleep, life stresses and dehydration. During the holiday season, it is important to stay hydrated, get plenty of rest and maintain an effective skin care program. The skin requires nourishment from products that have the ability to penetrate through to the cells, to repair, protect and improve cell health.

We suggest to consult with a qualified aesthetican who can direct you to the proper treatment program your skin requires. At View Laser, we offer a comprehensive skin analysis. This allows us to assess your skin and make recommendations using the highest quality pharmaceutical grade skin care.
