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.
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!
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.
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.
VERY HAPPY I CHOSE THIS CLINIC!
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!
