Calgary Botox Cosmetic® Specialists
At Age Management Institute in Calgary, Dr. Lizette Lourens is a specially-trained, skilled and talented injector, trained in The Art of Botox®. Botox Cosmetic® is an artform, as the practitioner must evaluate each individual and establish the proper amount and location for each injection. During your complimentary consultation at Calgary Age Management Institute, Dr. Lourens utilizes specially designed calipers to measure the artistry of your face with the “golden ratio” – an equation famously used by Leonardo da Vinci. It’s this attention to detail, along with skill and years of experience that has made us a popular destination for cosmetic Botox® in Calgary and the surrounding area.
Will my face still look natural?
Definitely! We pride ourselves on maintaining a natural appearance for our guests.
What should I expect during my first visit?
At your initial appointment, you will have a consultation with Dr. Lizette Lourens. We will discuss your concerns and examine your skin in relation and facial structure. We obtain a medical history, then discuss and sign a medical consent form for Botox Cosmetic®. We utilize medical grade photography, capturing several facial views and then review how much product you will need in order to achieve the best, most natural result.
What should I expect during a cosmetic Botox® treatment?
During the actual procedure, several tiny injections of a very small amount of Botox Cosmetic®, mixed with saline, will be injected into your predetermined areas. The needle used in a Botox® treatment is so fine in gauge, most people do not feel any discomfort at all.
Can I return to work immediately?
Absolutely! You can return to most normal activities immediately after a Botox® treatment. We will even touch up your makeup using our Jane Iredale mineral makeup products.
What do I need to do after the treatment?
After your Botox® treatment, there are a few simple tips for you to follow:
1. Try to exercise the treated muscle for the first 30 minutes. Practice frowning, smiling, raising your eyebrows, squinting, etc. This can help to work the Botox Cosmetic® into your muscles. But if you forget, don’t worry. It will not negatively impact your treatment.
2. Do not rub or massage the treated area for 24 hours after your Botox® treatment. During that time, use a gentle touch when applying make up or washing your face.
3. For the next four hours, avoid facials or saunas and do not lie down or do any strenuous exercise. Feel free to go about your other regular daily activities!
When will I see the results?
Botox Cosmetic® results appear gradually. They will start to become visible in three to seven days and are fully achieved in seven to ten days. Individual results may vary according to your skin and muscle movement. We will book a follow-up visit approximately two weeks after your Botox® treatment to review your new look. At this appointment, we will obtain post treatment photos to review and compare with your earlier photography. It’s the best way for you to truly see the change!
How long does it last?
Botox Cosmetic® wears off gradually, with the results lasting approximately four months.
Is it Safe?
At Age Management Institute Calgary, each Botox® treatment in our clinic is administered by Dr. Lizette Lourens, so you can rest assured your injectable facial enhancements will be done safely.
