Botox | Dr. Seal
Conveniently located to serve Vancouver, BC
Reduce the appearance of wrinkles with neuromodulators in Vancouver, BC. Facial lines develop over time due to the effects of sun exposure, aging, muscle activation, baseline skin quality, and genetics. These lines can contribute to looking older and more tired than you may feel. Some patients also comment that they feel like their facial lines make them look angry. Fortunately, some of the effects of aging can be slowed and reversed. Botox® is a great option to address facial lines and wrinkles, as a safe, non-surgical treatment. This is a very popular non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedure, with the goal to refresh, and re-energize your look and feel.
Botox® facial rejuvenation can be performed alone or following other procedures such as Facelift, Neck Lift, and other Facial Rejuvenation procedures. Dr. Seal would be happy to discuss your concerns and goals and help you decide whether or not Botox® would be a good option to refresh your look. To take the next step, request a consultation with Dr. Seal, or call our office at (604) 569-2895 to schedule an appointment. We look forward to hearing from you and helping you identify what your options may be on the road to achieving all of your aesthetic and functional goals.
Botox® is a neuromuscular modulator. It is Botulinum Toxin Type A and has been used therapeutically for many years for a variety of medical conditions. The molecule works to temporally block the nerve stimulation of specific muscles to weaken their contraction. It is these contractions that lead to lines and wrinkles, and therefore, by reducing the underlying tension of the muscle, the overlying skin appears more relaxed and smooth. Common areas treated include:
- Frown lines between the eyebrows.
- Creases across the forehead.
- Crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes.
- Fine lines around the mouth.
Am I an Ideal Candidate?
Good candidates for Botox® treatments are individuals with dynamic wrinkles. If you have deepening creases around your eyes, on your forehead, or eyebrows, then you may be an ideal candidate for getting Botox injections. You need to be in good overall health, without known allergies to Botox® or any of its ingredients. It is important to have a positive outlook and realistic expectations.
You may not be recommended for Botox® treatments if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Patients with active infections in the target areas are recommended to address the infection before getting Botox®.
Your Consultation in Vancouver
A physical examination is performed during your consultation for Botox® treatments. Your medical history will be reviewed to confirm your compatibility with the procedure. Discuss your motivations and goals so that your custom treatment plan can be fine-tuned to your specific concerns and desired results.

Prior to your neuromodulator injections, a topical numbing cream may be applied to ensure patient comfort. Botox® is injected directly into the muscles in the areas desired to be treated using a very fine needle. Usually, ice on the skin beforehand is all that is needed to prevent any discomfort. The injections are performed in the office with no significant discomfort and no required downtime.
Your Botox will be administered in Dr. Alex Seal’s office located in Vancouver, British Columbia.
What to expect during your recovery
Botox® injections are performed in the office with no required anesthetic. You will be able to go home after the procedure to relax and recover or return to work and regular activities that day if desired. The refreshed results usually appear within the first 48-72 hours. Depending on your initial goals, you will still be able to smile, and convey emotion through your facial expressions, without the wrinkles. The results can last 4-to-6 months and can be maintained with subsequent touch-up injections.
This is an excellent option for patients who would like to look and feel refreshed, without having the downtime from surgery.
Cost of Neuromodulators
The cost of neuromodulators depends on a number of factors involved during your treatment in Vancouver. The overall price will reflect the number of units of the product used and the type of neuromodulator administered.
