Botox, Restylane or Juvederm

A visit to the plastic surgeon isn’t the only way to improve your appearance or turn back the years.

At our Kelowna Skin Care Centre, we provide a range of non-surgical, anti-aging skin treatments such as Botox, Juvederm and Restylane. These products offer an effective, less invasive option for patients who want to look younger and fresher with none of the surgical downtime.

But which one is right for you?

Here is all the information you need to determine which one of these popular anti-aging treatments is best suited for your aesthetic needs.


What is Botox?

Botox is made from a purified neurotoxin, botulinum and works by temporarily relaxing facial muscles and eliminating any unwanted wrinkles.

How does Botox work?

Botox works by blocking signals from the nerves to the facial muscles. The injected muscle is unable to contract, causing the wrinkles to relax and soften.

What can Botox treat cosmetically?

Botox is used most often on forehead lines, crow’s feet and frown lines. It can also be used for lip lines and to eliminate the wrinkles found at the corner of the mouth.

What are the benefits of Botox?

  • Non-invasive short procedure (approximately 20 minutes)
  • No downtime
  • No sedation or anesthetic required
  • Results last for 3-4 months
  • Has no effect on the sensory nerves so you will still have a normal feeling in the injected area


What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is an injectable tissue filler made from hyaluronic acid - a naturally occurring sugar in your body - and adds volume to facial tissues, restoring a more vibrant appearance to the face.

How does Juvederm work?

Young and healthy skin contains an abundance of hyaluronic acid (HA). As we age, the amount of HA in our skin reduces, creating unwanted facial lines and folds.

Juvederm is a safe and effective way of replacing the lost HA, bringing back your skin’s vibrancy and smoothing away any unwanted wrinkles.

What can Juvederm treat?

Juvederm can be used to treat multiple problem areas including nasolabial folds, smile lines, marionette lines as well as lip enhancement and defining facial contours such as the cheeks, chin and jawline.

What are the benefits of Juvederm?
  • No risk of allergic reactions as it is made from a natural substance
  • Minimally invasive surgery
  • No downtime
  • Immediate, long-lasting results (6-12 months)
  • Contains a numbing agent to provide comfort during treatment
  • Natural results

What is Restylane?

Like Juvederm, Restylane is an FDA approved tissue filler composed of hyaluronic acid and works to gently restore volume and fullness to the skin.

How does Restylane work?

Restylane is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid, replacing lost volume, smoothing away wrinkles and defining facial contours to provide immediate results.

What can Restylane treat?

This tissue filler can be used to visibly reduce moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds, enhance the shape of your lips and fill in shallow contours, such as gaunt cheeks.

What are the benefits of Restylane?
  • Natural, long lasting results (up to 1 year)
  • Minimally invasive procedure with no downtime
  • No risk of allergic reaction
  • Can be tailored to your specific needs
  • Results are not permanent, allowing you to change your appearance subtly over time

Combining Botox With a Tissue Filler

An innovative new approach in aesthetic medicine is to use both Botox and a tissue filler in a combined approach to rejuvenation.

When used in combination, these two skin care treatments can produce a synergistic effect which lasts longer and looks much more pleasing.

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
