I recently went to Physician Skincare Centre in North Vancouver to get Botox and lip filler. Although I live in West Point Grey, the trek out to North Vancouver was well worth it. I wanted to be treated by someone with plenty of experience, and Dr. Bieg has over 10 years of experience injecting Botox and filler.

Dr. Bieg books enough time with his clients to avoid any sense of the appointment being rushed. He took the time to tell me about various options for treatments, and he even showed me before-and-after photos of his clients who had the treatment in question done so that I could see the results.

After Dr. Bieg and I discussed the results I was seeking, we decided on lip filler and Botox Cosmetic. Botox reduces the appearance of and prevents wrinkles by relaxing the facial muscles that cause wrinkles to form. The end result? More youthful, smoother skin with significantly less visible wrinkles. Botox lasts for 4 – 5 months, making it a lot more budget-friendly than you may have thought.

The filler Dr. Bieg used for my lip injections was Juvederm. Juvederm enhances the lips and yet looks incredibly natural.

After my treatment with Dr. Bieg, my end results were amazing:

 1. Wrinkle reduction

Botox Cosmetic is known for reducing the appearance of wrinkles, but in my case my wrinkles actually disappeared completely post-treatment. I used to be self-conscious about my frown lines and the crows feet and wrinkles around my eyes, but now my face is wrinkle-free.

2No more gummy smile

To beautify my smile, lip filler wasn’t all Dr. Bieg suggested. He also used a few units of Botox to reduce the amount my gums would show when I smiled. Now, when I smile all you can see is full lips and perfect teeth – no more gums getting in the way.

3. Lip enhancement

Post-treatment, my lips look fuller and sexier. Dr. Bieg was right – Juvederm does look very natural. It also lasts for up to 9 months, which is great.

4. The appearance of bigger eyes

In my case, getting Botox injections in my forehead subtly lifted my brows and created the appearance of bigger, brighter eyes. I look more fresh, more awake and a lot younger now. I had no idea that this type of effect would occur – I was only expecting wrinkle reduction – so it was a nice surprise and definitely an added bonus that the treatment enhanced my eyes.

5. The appearance of smoother skin

Botox Cosmetic smooths out the skin. This is something I always heard from other people, but now I know that it really does. My skin now looks smoother, softer and more youthful. I’ve been told I look like I’m “glowing” and that I look very rested. These are compliments I didn’t often hear pre-treatment.

There are several other cosmetic uses for Botox that I didn’t need, but that Dr. Bieg offers to his clients.

  • If, for example, you have a slight pin-cushion chin that you don’t like, Botox can help diminish that.
  • If you have any wrinkling in your chin when you smile or talk, Botox can treat that as well.
  • If your lips tend to curve downwards making it look as though you have “bitchy resting face” Botox can actually lift the corners of your lips to prevent your resting face from looking unhappy.

So there you have it. Both Juvederm and Botox are very reliable, results-driven treatments that really work.

Dr. Bieg is fantastic at what he does, and I highly recommend booking a consultation with him to discuss your options, and figure out what would work best for you.
