Dr. Santos offers Botox cosmetic injections in Vancouver and Burnaby. We have a wealth of experience with the use of this drug. The injections are relatively painless with little to no downtime.

How does it work?

Botox blocks the nerve impulses to the muscles. This is temporary and normally lasts for 3-4 months. By injecting extremely small doses of botox to a specific muscle, we can safely relax the muscle. The overlying skin lines will gradually soften and smooth out. Botox takes effect in 3-7 days, while maximum results are achieved in 10-14 days.

What are the side effects?

Some patients may experience some temporary redness or bruising immediately after the treatment. Rarely, if botox migrates to the upper eyelid, one can experience a slight drooping of the eyelid which corrects itself after a short while. Occasional temporary numbness of the forehead and a transient headache may occur. There have been no reports of allergic reaction to botox. Botox is contraindicated in those with neuromuscular disorders as well as pregnant or lactating women.

How much does a typical treatment cost?

Dr. Santos charges $9.50 per unit (GST included). An average treatment can use 20-50 units. Call us at 604-439-1230 for a free consultation. Cosmetic treatments are not covered under extended health plans.
