Helping you achieve your most beautiful smile is what we take pride in. Helping you achieve a rejuvenated, more youthful looking appearance? We’re pleased to say that we’ve got that covered too. Parkview Dental welcomes Botox Cosmetic into our practice, helping you rediscover a fresh and natural appearance.
For the past decade, only certified physicians and their nurses were permitted to administer Botox in Canada & the US. Just recently, the College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia introduced a new policy allowing dentists to administer Botox to their patients. We are pleased to say that in March 2008, Parkview Dental became one of the first few dental offices in BC to receive their Botox license and certification.
The Facts on Botox
Widely used in the medical profession for more than 10 years, Botox Cosmetic is remarkably effective for eliminating deep grooves, furrows and wrinkles and helps restore a soft, natural and relaxed appearance. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). One 10-minute treatment—a few tiny injections—and within days there’s a noticeable improvement which can last up to 4 months. After decades of use, Botox remains the gold standard of non-surgical rejuvenation.
How It Works
During treatment, a very small amount of Botox is injected into the muscles along expression lines on the forehead and the bridge of the nose, around the eyes, or on the neck. This causes the muscles to relax, softening your appearance within days.
Discomfort is limited to the few seconds needed for each injection. You may experience minor bruising and a light headache on the day of treatment, but you will be able to return to work that day.
The positive effects of Botox start to show within a week of treatment and last for months.
Why Choose a Dentist vs. a Physician for Your Botox Treatments?
Botox and dentists traditionally did no go hand in hand, but given their expertise in facial anatomy, it makes most sense. Of all practitioners, dentists extensively study the musculoskeletal and nerve make up of the face, plus meticulous facial injections is part of the daily practice of any dentist.
Parkview Dental uses only FDA-approved Allergan Botox, ensuring safe, predictable results. All Botox treatments and consultations are performed by Dr. Ayoughi, who has the experience to customize your treatments, minimize side effects, and provide a long-lasting, natural looking result. For a complimentary consultation with Dr. Ayoughi, please contact us at 604.438.1555.
“By incorporating Botox Cosmetic into our practice, we now have the ability to help our patients achieve a more youthful, fresh, well rested and happier looking appearance. If I can safely take away ten years from a patient’s face in 10 minutes, why not? What I like most about Botox is that it’s temporary. No matter what the result and how one feels about it, it will go away in few months. I haven’t seen anyone who didn’t like it yet, which is why I am so pleased to see our patients returning every 4-6 months.” – Dr. Shahdad Ayoughi
“My first and now regular experiences receiving Botox injections from Dr. Ayoughi are relaxing and stress-free, and the results – extremely rewarding! I now see Dr. Ayoughi on a regular basis for preventative Botox treatments. I feel I have found the fountain of eternal youth! My forehead wrinkles, frown lines and crows feet are no longer visibly forming on my face. An added bonus is the relief of the tension that I was feeling in my forehead. As a result, my regular migraine headaches are much milder and occur less and less as my Botox treatments carry on.” -Rebecca, Vancouver
