Dr. Crippen has been performing Botox Cosmetic Injections for over 10 years and is not only one of the most experienced physicians in the country but also injects more Botox than any other physician in the BC Interior. Make sure you have an experienced physician perform your Botox Injection in Kelowna.
BOTOX ® is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles. There are two types of BOTOX available:
The average appointment is 10-15 minutes, involving a simple BOTOX injection into the treatment area with little to no discomfort.
Immediate – patients receiving BOTOX are able to return to their normal activities immediately. There is no downtime. A follow up appointment will be scheduled for one to two weeks after the treatment to monitor your progress and to make sure the Botox treatment is working to your satisfaction.
It will likely take 2 -4 days for a treatment to start working, and up to a week before the treatment takes full effect. When the treatment is activated the visible results will be smoother skin, the reduction of wrinkles, or decreased sweating depending on the condition being treated. It is important to remember however, that results are only temporary (normally 3-4 months but this duration varies between patients) and additional treatments will be necessary to maintain achieved results.

In our last blog, we revisited the topic of BOTOX and the many myths surrounding it. As always, it's important for us to point out that undergoing any type of medical procedure should entail consulting with a licensed and experienced physician first. No one else should even be attempting to operate on you, let alone inject you with anything.
Sadly, not everyone does their due diligence before undergoing cosmetic procedures. As a result, some people have some horror stories following surgeries or treatments that involve injections. However, it isn't BOTOX that deserves the bad rap. Instead, it's the non-licensed individuals posing as professional physicians who should be reprimanded.
That being said, it's important to unveil some truth about BOTOX. And in order to do so, we must take a look at some of the most prevalent myths about it. On EmpireMedicalTraining.com, a list including the top five myths about BOTOX can be found. We began to take a look at this list in our last blog. Let's pick up where we left off, shall we?
The third myth listed is that BOTOX will leave you with a frozen face or give you that unnatural “startled” look. The fact, however, is that following treatments, patients generally appear more relaxed and youthful. Once again, this is a myth that is perpetuated by the unqualified individuals who have improperly administered BOTOX injections.
Trained professionals know exactly which muscles to treat and only inject BOTOX into those specific muscles. Here's another myth: You can only get one BOTOX treatment. In actuality, you can repeat your BOTOX treatments. As EmpireMedicalTraining.com explains, treatments can last up to three months in order to achieve optimum results.
Some people respond quicker than others, so the frequency of visits depend on the individual. Again, consulting with a doctor is the best way to discover what treatment plan is best for you. Finally, myth number five is that BOTOX is a dangerous toxin. In truth, it has a fabulous safety record.
Since 1987, doctors have been performing an average of three million BOTOX procedures per year without any patients experiencing long-term side effects. As EmpireMedicalTraining.com puts it, BOTOX “is a purified protein and a medical prescription product, and has been used therapeutically to treat a variety of medical conditions.”
We hope our blogs have helped to dispel some myths, while encouraging you to consult a physician if you have any questions about BOTOX.
