Botox & Nuceiva
Botox in Calgary
Positive expressions, such as our smile, are the best things we can wear. However, with time and repetitive movement, permanent facial lines, creases and wrinkles often appear. You can reduce these signs of aging with our Nuceiva and Botox in Calgary. At Remington Laser, we’ll ensure you experience personalized treatment while enjoying amazing results.
Persistent frown lines can’t be treated with a robotic approach. At Remington Laser, we focus on understanding our patients’ primary and secondary frown muscles and “frown patterns” (such as the ‘U’, ‘V’ or Omega), creating a customized treatment that gets rid of stubborn frown lines.
Due to its popularity in both cosmetic and non-cosmetic treatments, we have used Botox in our practice since it was approved in Canada in 2001. While similar to other cosmetic treatments, Botox has larger particles of botulinum toxin A and has proven to be effective and safe for consistent use.

Potential side effects include pain, swelling, redness, bleeding and bruising at the injection site. In some cases, these symptoms may indicate an allergic reaction; however, this is exceedingly rare. Other allergy-type symptoms are itching, wheezing, asthma, a rash, red welts, dizziness and faintness. It is also possible for the neuromodulators to spread a little beyond the injection site, leading to temporary drooping. If you are experiencing unwanted side effects, please get in touch with our clinic.
It all depends on your personal goals, conditions and what you would like to achieve. The cost of the treatment is based on the zone/area being treated. Our world-renowned doctors can provide you with an estimate of how many sessions you need and the cost when you visit our Botox clinic.
Insurance companies may offer coverage for some specific medical conditions. You will need to contact your insurance provider directly to inquire about your coverage. A prescription would then be provided for you. An injection fee is payable at the time of service.
