Botox® is a safe purified neurotoxin protein that is approved by Health Canada and FDA. Small amounts are carefully injected directly into the muscle by our skilled physicians. Nerve impulses are blocked from reaching the muscles, which are then unable to contract and form wrinkles or lines.
Botox® injections are simple and virtually painless procedures that help lessen the appearance of wrinkles, creases and lines particularly for the upper face. It is a popular anti-aging treatment for both men and women.
Your Botox® treatments can help with:
- Smoothing out the appearance of smile lines, crow’s feet, forehead creases, chin/neck wrinkles and improve the gummy smile. It can also be used cosmetically to slim the face and calf which is very popular with the Asian community.
- Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating of palms, armpits and feet). This can be partially covered for certain clients
- Spasms of the head and neck
- Temporal mandibular joint dysfunction
- Frey’s syndrome (sweating from cheek after parotid gland surgery)
A complete examination is performed at your first visit. Our consultation fee is $120 and is credited towards your same day treatment.
Botox Cosmetic is offered via regional pricing including the forehead, frown lines, brow lift, crow’s feet, bunny lines, facial slimming, calf slimming, Smoker’s lines, downturned lips, chin pitting, neck banding and gummy smile.
Botox Therapeutic can be covered through Special Authority Approval as well as Third Party Insurance. This can be performed for muscle disorders include general head and neck spasticity, torticollis, bruxism (jaw clenching) and migraines. Ask your physician for more information.
Snorelase MD Program for Snoring
Snoring procedures include both completely non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures. We are the only Specialized Snoring Center in North America to offer the Snorelase MD Program which we have modified to improve patient outcomes. Furthermore, we are the only center to have ENT supervision which is necessary to ensure patient safety, correct diagnosis and appropriate client selection. This therapy offers significant improvement in snoring in up to 85% of patients WITHOUT the use of needles or anesthetic. It utilizes a state of the art laser therapy to increase collagen formation within the tissues, which helps to remodel and stiffen the soft palate to reduce or eliminate snoring or obstructive sleep apnea. No anesthetic or subsequent analgesics are required. There is no cutting of tissue, so as a result there is no down time, little to no pain, and patients can resume activities immediately afterwards. Minor dry throat for 24-48 hours is the only common side effect. There is also a rare chance of developing a mucosal ulcer which will heal spontaneously after 1-2 weeks. While patients may notice some improvement within days after the initial procedure, maximal results occur over a period of 3-4 months.
Three – five sessions are required 3 weeks apart for patients starting the program, requiring a recommended ‘top up’ procedure every 8-24 months. A specialized sleep assessment required to be a candidate for this procedure. Laser treatments for snoring or sleep apnea are not covered by MSP or Third-party insurers. This is offered currently Coquitlam location.

Benign skin lesion excision of the head and neck can be quite bothersome and cosmetically displeasing. If you have any concerns about a skin lesion, talk to your specialist. Together you can decide how quickly it will need to be treated. We offer excellent rates for excisional biopsies of benign lesions starting at $300 for the first lesion and $200 for every successive lesion at that visit.
Tonsillar resurfacing is a relatively new procedure which involved using Coblation technology which involves targeting the offending tonsil crypt, that houses a stone, to further widen the surface area. This achieves a flatter surface whereby food particles do not accumulate. This procedure is 80% effective and is not a covered service by MSP or Third Party Insurance. The cost of this procedure is $950.
Tonsil laser resurfacing is currently being investigated. Please ask your specialist if you are interested in signing up for this trial.
