Are you undecided about investing in Botox in Kelowna?

You’re not alone. Many people like the results others are getting with Botox, but they still wonder if it’s a safe product. 

Today, you’ll learn how Botox is used by West Kelowna dentist, Dr. Shauna Palmer, and why it’s totally safe to use. 

Is Botox Natural? Is It Truly Safe?  

Dentists with a biological approach like Dr. Palmer are often asked two questions about Botox in Kelowna. 

The first question is, is Botox natural?  

Botox comes from a bacterium that releases a protein called botulinum toxin

The second question people ask about Botox is, is Botox safe? This question makes total sense – after all, how safe can something be if it started out as a toxic bacterium?

Botox is considered safe. There have only been a handful of negative reactions to Botox injections over a 14-year period, quite a few of which were attributed to a preexisting underlying condition. 

For the most part, injections are safe even long-term because the patient is given such a small dose. Of course, complications can arise if you end up going to someone who isn’t trained. Getting injections from an untrained person can result in discomfort during and after the injection. You also run the risk of infections and poor results. Botox in Kelowna – How It’s Used Cosmetically 

Botox can be used to treat medical conditions and is also used extensively in our office for its cosmetic benefits. Here are just a few ways Botox can help you.

  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead
  • Lessen severe underarm sweating
  • Stop uncontrollable blinking
  • Calm overactive bladder
  • Correct misaligned eyes

In terms of reducing tension headaches and migraine pain, we use a physiological approach to fix the root cause of the debilitating pain rather than a ‘band aid’ approach with botox.
