Treatment For Wrinkles & Lines
BOTOX® Cosmetic Therapy Consultations
Look Refreshed And Rested, Not Done
There are 4 main neuromodulators available on the market: Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Nuceiva®. Each is used to reduce the signs of aging through softening fine lines and wrinkles creating a more youthful glow.
Our skilled cosmetic injectors at Helix will work with you to ensure you achieve your desired results. We want you to look natural and not over done with all our treatments.
Each treatment starts with a consult to review goals and concerns. Treatments generally take less than 30 minutes with majority of the time developing a plan. Your next treatment will be book in 3-4 months apart. The benefits may be enjoyed for several months, and the untreated areas will continue to operate normally so your results will look natural.
How Does Botox® Work?
Botox® or other neuromodulators work by blocking the messaging pathway to treated muscles. By stopping the connection, it stops the muscle from activating which stop the formation of wrinkles. Lines that can be seen at rest are referred to as "static" lines while lines/wrinkles that are seen with movement are referred to as "dynamic" lines. Botox® helps to prevent and even reverse both static and dynamic lines.
While skin care routines can help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, no other treatment on the market today acts the same way on the muscle as Botox®. It is the leading wrinkle reducing treatment on the market with some of the best results for stopping wrinkle formation.
What to expect from a Botox® Treatment
Botox® treatments are relatively quick with no downtime after the procedure. At the Helix Clinic, we book 15 minutes for the treatment to review the benefits of Botox®. treatment goals, price point, and after care to ensure you understand your Botox® treatment. We encourage you to tell us about your previous treatments (if any) so we can understand how your muscles work and build off your previous Botox® treatments for the best result.
Botox® Pricing: $10/unit plus GST
Dysport® Pricing: $10/unit plus GST
Once the treatment is complete, you are able to go about your day as normal with a few restrictions to ensure the best outcome for your treatment.
Botox® For Men
Yes! Men get Botox® to help with anti-aging. They may not be as vocal but 100% they do. Even our male injectors at the clinic receive wrinkle prevention treatments to ensure they look youthful.
Men are a main reason why the neuromodulator sector is increasing. More and more men are signing up to look youthful. One of the best things you can do is to book a complimentary consult to develop a solid Botox® plan. The one negative is genetically, men require a few extra units due to muscle development.
Botox® Post Care
There is no downtime after a Botox® treatment however, there are a few restrictions such as: no gym for 12 hours, no sauna, no hot tub, and no laying down for a few hours post treatment.
Botox® does not reveal results right away. It takes on average 7 days for the Botox® treatment to start working and will continue to last for 3-4 months.

Am I A Candidate For Vanquish ME Body Contouring?BTL VANQUISH ME treatments are designed for those who want to decrease the circumference of their abdomen and thighs – regardless of their BMI. The BTL VANQUISH ME is an option for those who desire aesthetic improvement without the cost and recovery time of surgery.
How Long Are The Treatments?Each treatment session is scheduled for 45 minutes to get the most of each session. It is recommended that patients undergo 4 treatments scheduled 1 week apart to achieve the desired results. More sessions may be needed on a case to case basis.
What Does It Feel Like?Comfort is the main advantage of BTL VANQUISH ME compared to some other shaping therapies. All you will typically feel is a warm sensation in the treated area (similar to sitting in the sun on a beach) which may last for a few hours post therapy. The treatment is performed in a lying position so you can easily relax during the procedure.
When Will I See Results?Many patients report changes as soon as 2 to 3 weeks after the first treatment, when their body starts to naturally eliminate disrupted fat cells. Optimal results can be usually seen after a couple of months.
What Are The Pre-Treatment Recommendations?Rest and beauty sleep. The BTL Vanquish/EXILIS is non-surgical, so you’ll be able to return to your normal, daily activities once the procedure is finished. It’s still important that you get enough rest and allow your body to rejuvenate after the procedure. This gives your body the time it needs to function normally again as it rids of the dead fat cells. Stay hydrated. It’s important to drink enough water to keep your body hydrated. As your body deposits all the dead fat cells, you’ll want to keep yourself replenished and hydrated as it goes through its natural processes. Make sure you come to your treatment hydrated and stay hydrated after it’s complete. Aim for 6-8 cups before your treatment. A few days before and after your treatment is even better. Promote the lymphatic drainage! Give the BTL Vanquish time. The results from the BTL Vanquish are not immediate. On average, it can take about three weeks to start noticing results, and a few months to notice the most dramatic results. During your wait period, it’s important to relax, continue your exercising, and maintain a healthy diet. Schedule a follow-up. Results will continue to be seen two months after your last treatment so we want to be able to show you your before and after photos, and we can also gauge the next course of action. You may need to continue treatments in the same area or other areas. Patients who have more than one treatment tend to see faster and greater results. It’s your goal, and we’re here to help you achieve the best results as much as we can! Don’t ditch your diet. Post BTL Vanquish treatments, don’t get caught in bad eating habits. Make sure you get proper rest, and work out as usual. We see many of our patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after a treatment. BTL Vanquish is excellent for fat reduction, but the maximum results will be achieved if you pair your treatment with a healthy lifestyle. Don’t fall victim to the idea “I can eat and do whatever I want.”.
What Are The Post-Treatment Recommendations?There isn't a lot of things you have to do post Vanquish ME. BUT, if you want to optimize your results, here are a few ideas to consider. 1- Sweat it out. Get your blood flow moving to enhance your lymphatic system. This will help to accelerate your weight loss results. 2- Infrared sauna's help to boost lymphatic flow. It's great for detoxification and purging the body of "extras" including the ruptured fat cells. Talk to your medical professional to ensure infrared is safe to use. 3- Keep hydrated. 4- Don't fall into bad eating habits. Healthy eating is still a super important aspect to body contouring therapy. Bad eating habits still promote fat gain. 5- Stay on your Vanquish ME schedule. Skipping weeks will delay results.
