Botulinum Toxins

We at Medical Spa Club located in Richmond, B.C., use Botulinum Toxins in a number of popular cosmetic and medical procedures. Doctor Pinkhasik has been practicing in Richmond since 1987 heading 2 busy family practice clinics.
 

 

How Does Botulinum Toxins Work?

Botulinum Toxins are cosmetic injectables with a neuro-modulator derived from Botulinum A toxin that is used for relaxation of specific hyper-active, tense, or spastic muscles to produce the desired effect.
These neuromodulators permanently block the release of Acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter, from nerve endings at the site of injection, producing the following effects:
  • Relaxation of muscles that cause wrinkles, or a muscle spasm that causes a headache
  • Targeted relaxation of specific muscles can be used to produce a brow lift, reduce a gummy smile, or improve “turkey neck”
  • Injecting into Masseter Muscles can weaken these muscles, reduce Masseter size, and is used for treatment of Bruxism (teeth grinding) and TMJ pain
  • Injecting in areas rich in sweat glands (such as underarms) will block the nerves activating these sweat glands, and can be used for treatment of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)

 

What are the Risks? 

Our Richmond clinic has been using these injectables since 2011. These injections are done using very thin needles so the discomfort is minimal.

The safety and comfort of our patients is a priority at Richmond Medical Spa Club; only licensed doctors perform injectable treatments.  They are generally safe, and side effects and complications are minimal to none. Side effects can include: bruising and pain at the injection site, redness and temporary facial weakness or drooping.  Prior to receiving any injectable treatments, the doctor will have a health consultation to answer any questions regarding the benefits and risks of injectables and whether or not you are a good candidate.
