Nadine Frame: “Although for years I have attended conferences and researched our machines, been trained on them… attended training sessions on skin care products I thought it best to leave the consults to our wonderful experts. I have discovered a new passion for myself, I love the interaction with patients and enjoy the process of visualizing what can be achieved with fillers, Botox and textural machines that smooth, repair damage, re-texture and tighten. My years of being an artist are paying off, I now have a new medium. And the reward is great – happy and healthy looking faces. Sculpting lives with health and cosmetics is a beautiful art.

I’m very happy with the results I’ve gotten with Dr. Frame. We moved here 6 years ago from Toronto and it took some time to find the right doctor. I tried a few other well known west-side doctors with results that weren’t great. Dr. Frame listens to what I want – a natural look that’s not a face full of neuromodulators. His bedside manner is calming and informative. You just may get a few free anti-aging tips along the way – he’s just that good. Most importantly, we’ve all seen the bad work that’s out there in Vancouver and I feel for those women. Too many neuromodulators and filler. Why can’t they see what we see? Dr. Frame is an artist when it comes to ensuring a natural look. When I look in the mirror I’m thankful to have found someone as skilled as Dr. Frame.
Dr. Frame was recommended to me by a friend. Having never had neuromodulators before, I was initially a bit nervous, but really wanted to do something about those lines that seem to keep showing up in the mirror, so I finally called his clinic. I was very impressed by the attentiveness and professionalism of his staff. They welcomed me in, offered me tea, and really made me feel at ease. Dr. Frame’s nurse was very knowledgeable and listened to all of my concerns. I was then introduced to Dr. Frame, who was very reassuring and did not make me feel pressured into having the treatment. He simply listened to my worries and thoroughly explained how the treatment worked and what results I could expect afterwards. I decided to go ahead with the neuromodulator treatment that day. I am supposed to go back in two weeks for a follow-up, but after only one week, I am thrilled with the results. I will definitely go back in 3 or 4 months when the results wear off.
For anti-aging, I’ve been under Dr. Frame’s care for about twelve years. As each year goes by, I realize what a lucky person I am. Hats off to Dr. Frame. The simplest way to say this is that my life improved in every aspect. I wish that I could have started being under his care fifty years ago.
A few weeks ago I decided to google search to see what places offered neuromodulators injections for my excessive facial sweating then I came across a few websites that I was interested in, began to do my research and even made a few phone calls to make sure the staff were friendly and the services they provided was what I wanted. Anyways, it came down to one place I was absolutely interested in and that was this clinic. The first impression when I got in, it was absolutely amazing. The designs of everything was very contemporary, professional and inviting. Finally, I met Dr. Frame and the rest of his staff and they provided me with the best care. They even took their time to explain to me what to expect before and after the procedure. Everyone was really knowledgeable and experienced that I wasn’t scared for a second that they would do a bad job and for it to turn out badly. Once again, I am completely impressed with this clinic and would continue on getting services with them. You should too!!!
Dr Frame and his staff have changed my life! I suffer from debilitating migraines. In November 2012 after a 16-day migraine, I went to see Dr. Frame about neuromodulator injections to relieve my migraines. Dr. Frame was thorough and extremely knowledgeable about the topic, and he took time with me during the consultation. I was nervous the first time but they held my hand and it all went well. The next day I woke up without a headache for the first time in for as long as I can remember!! I still get migraines but they are now a headache which I can cope with. I no longer lose days or weeks of my life. Thank you Dr. Frame!
Dr. Frame, Nadine as well as all of the staff at the clinic are fantastic. Patient care and an understanding of patient needs and treatment requirements are always first and foremost. I needed treatment due to cosmetic issues associated with an underlying medical condition. Dr. Frame took the time to understand my condition, get information on every medication I was on and factor it into the type of cosmetic procedures he performed. The treatments I received at the clinic made a world of difference in the way I felt and allowed me to continue with my life and minimize the impact of my condition. A truly fantastic team and facility!
I have been a client of the Anti-Aging clinic for about 7 years. One of the things I most appreciate is how creative the clinic is in balancing my desires and my budget! I’d say I have champagne taste on a local wine budget and they have always been positive and supportive of this while managing to help me hold back the years. I recommend them to all my friends for this and also because of the competent and ethical practice of Dr. Frame.
Shelley has always given me great service and that hasn’t changed. I’m finding that my skin just after 2 Microdermabrasions with the peel, my pores are looking smaller and my skin, in general, is looking finer. I have two more treatments which I look forward to and can’t wait to see how much more improvement I will see. I think I will try to continue this treatment on a regular basis. I believe it is recommended that I come in every 3 months now for this treatment once having 4 treatments close together.
It’s not just about the injections…it’s about the artist.
It’s one thing to simply inject the neuromodulators or the fillers, it is quite another to be able to sculpt and mould a woman’s face.
Dr. Frame and his wife Nadine do exactly that. Together, they take pride and pleasure in the artistic process and treat the face as a canvas.
So great work and thanks to the Anti-aging Team!
I feel very lucky to meet the friendly and expert team, so glad that I have my Thermage CPT treatment done before my Birthday!!!
Looking forward to trying the new generation of Thermage and see the team again !!!
I had an amazing experience here! The doctors and staff are knowledgeable and attentive to the individual needs of the patients. They take all the time needed to make the best decisions for the best skin and I am so pleased.
This was my first time seeing anyone about filler for my deep tear troughs. I was nervous about getting filler and looking “done.” The staff were very patient and entertained my plethora of questions. My consultation with Nadine was very pleasant and she gave me a rundown of what she envisioned for me, taking into consideration what I was comfortable with and my budget. I was only in for a consultation but decided to move forward with the procedure. Dr. Frame was extremely friendly and I really enjoyed his bedside manner. I struggle with acne also and both Nadine and Dr. Frame seemed keen on helping me with my skin. Dr. Frame answered all of my questions about my options and was very thorough in his inquiries about my health. I truly felt like I was in good hands. I also really appreciated that there was a second set of eyes during the entire process and that Dr. Frame took my suggestions into consideration. Lastly, and probably most importantly, I didn’t feel pressured to do more than what I was comfortable with. Nadine explained the importance of a cheek filler as a base for the tear trough filler. After seeing the finished results, I definitely see how important this was! Overall, this was a very positive first time experience with filler and I am very happy with my decision to go to Dr. Frame as my research was based purely on what was available on the internet. I would highly recommend this doctor and this clinic! I am very pleased with my results and am amazed at what a difference I am seeing! I look forward to the follow-up!
I have a face that is not shaped evenly. Dr. Frame spent many many hours
on me to get the shape even. The staff are very friendly and patient.
If you are looking to get work done rest assure this is the place where you and
trust the work done right with care and love 🙂
After modelling at a conference in this field I had my follow-ups done at Anti-Aging.
The staff made me feel at ease and were very professional. Nadine assessed my face and recommended a little extra filler in some areas. It was was a painless procedure administered by Dr. Frame.
I highly recommend Dr. Frame, Nadine and their staff to anyone.
I look and feel wonderful thanks to the team at Anti-Aging.
Dr. Frame is the anti-aging guru! If you want to look and feel great, this is the place to make it happen. Nadine and all of the staff are awesome and very welcoming. What are you waiting for?!
I am so happy that I have found Dr. Frame and his wife Nadine. I am the type of person who has fears of looking old – who doesn’t? But now, after having put myself in Dr. Frame’s hands 3 years ago, I don’t have to worry or fear of looking old anymore. Dr. Frame and his wife Nadine can always find ways to keep me looking younger when I go and see them.
To be honest, over the past 3 years I’ve learned that I can just completely trust them and not worry. They propose treatment plans that are the most effective and economical for me and so far, each treatment has worked beautifully for me. I am not the type of person who writes reviews often online; but with Dr. Frame and Nadine, I finally decided to spend my time and write one because they truly deserve it! Each visit I came away looking better!
Some of the features on my face were fixed or improved bit by bit over the past years. Yesterday I went there for a regular filler injection, and I had a bit of extra material left over. Dr. Frame put it on my nose bridge and nose top, which dramatically made my face looking prettier ever than before! I never knew that my nose could look this straight– at no extra cost!
Dr. Frame and Nadine always try their best to work out plans that bring out the best results within my budget. And they are super devoted and honest about the work they do. I have a few doctor friends who give similar services as Dr. Frame does, but I have decided to follow Dr. Frame and Nadine because of a few reasons:
1) Dr. Frame’s state-of-the-art injection techniques.
2) Their advanced and updated knowledge about new materials, products, and techniques in the anti-aging market.
3) Their ability to make me look younger and prettier each time I walk out of their office and keeping me within my budget.
4) Their flexible, creative minds that can create some surprising results which I could never have imagined.
5) Their wonderful team in the office
6) Great decoration/slick environment in their office.
With a great satisfaction and confidence, I would say, I feel that I am in good hands and I can keep myself looking better than most women at my age for a very long time.
For those that are either new or familiar with neuromodulators and/or facial fillers, this clinic is outstanding in both service and results. I am an RN and have been in the plastic surgery and medical aesthetics industry since 1998 and it wasn’t until December 2015 at Dr. Frame's office that I finally found the best injector I have EVER had. The team is kind, informative and caring. On my first visit, I was given a full consultation and Nadine developed a care plan for me. She was very clear that it was not their intention of trying to accomplish this in one treatment session, unlike other clinics that I have encountered. She asked me what my budget was and we worked from there.
When I was ready to have my treatment I saw the assistant come in with multiple syringes all containing different amounts of Botulinum toxin.(I know this may not seem important to most people, however, it makes a difference as the needle on the syringe becomes dull very quickly after multiple injections). Most clinics don’t do this. The filler I received was outstanding, NEVER have I had such a comfortable injection process and the results were beautiful. Facial fillers require a thorough understanding of anatomy but also a creative eye, that coupled with a gentle hand is almost impossible to find but I found it with Dr. Frame. I have posted this from a nursing and consumer perspective because I know what happens in this medical aesthetic industry and how poorly many are trained. I recently moved to Vancouver I did a lot of research on many clinics prior to entering Dr. Frame's clinic and it was well worth it. If you are new to these procedures….please start here at this clinic.
Dr. Frame, Nadine and the staff at the Clinic are wonderful! I have always been self-conscious about my chin being slightly recessed and decided to try fillers (first time). Dr. Frame and Nadine thoroughly walked me through the process and answered any questions that I had. They were extremely patient and I felt completely at ease during the process. I had Perlane injected into my chin area and the results were phenomenal! My face looked much more balanced and it was what I was looking for and more! I had a great experience and highly recommend the Clinic!
