BTX-A is the most commonly performed medical cosmetic procedure. Since first being described in a Canadian Study in 1992* it has become a “cosmetic global phenomenon”.
BTX-A is a protein derived from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum and has been used for treatments in humans since 1980. BTX-A relaxes muscles and in tiny doses can be used to inject the facial muscles to achieve a relaxed, rejuvenated look by smoothing dynamic lines, wrinkles and folds.
This treatment is not only for cosmetic use but also can help relieve medical indications such as headache, migraine, hemi-facial spasm and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating.)
Dr Sarah West strives for a natural, youthful look for all male and female patients.
The Appmed House Registered Nurses have standing orders from Dr. West to inject BTX-A and they have been trained by and are directly supervised by Dr. West.
