(Results vary by individual patient and  results cannot be guaranteed)

Our Vancouver medical and laser clinic is now offering the Belotero® line of dermal fillers. Facial lines and wrinkles can be softened safely and quickly with little or no downtime. Whether you want lip enhancement, nose bridge augmentation, skin re-hydration, cheeks lifted or facial lines diminished, Belotero® has a filler to fit your needs.

What is Belotero®

Belotero® is an injectable dermal filler made from Hyaluronic Acid that comes in a range of thicknesses to replace lost volume and improve the quality of the skin.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural volumizer and hydrator found in your skin. As you age, your supply of HA decreases each year, leaving you at age 50 with less than half of what you had at age 20. HA is part of what gives your skin that youthful, supple appearance. With less of it, skin loses elasticity and plumpness and lines and wrinkles begin to form.

Benefits of Belotero®

  • Belotero® is made from a substance found in your own body; it is safe and needs no allergy testing prior for possible reaction or rejection.
  • Belotero® integrates quickly and evenly into your own dermal tissues giving you subtle but significant results without disrupting the natural contours of your face.
  • Studies support its safety and excellent tolerability.
  • Long lasting results; between 6 and 12 months. (Results vary by individual patient and results cannot be guaranteed)
  • Skin hydration improves.
  • Integrates so readily into your own tissue that you are unlikely to feel the substance when you touch the treated area.

Am I a good candidate?

If you feel your skin has lost firmness, you are noticing more fine lines and you would like a freshness boost without a dramatic change to your appearance, then you are a good candidate for Belotero®.

Before the treatment

You will take before photos and have time to talk to one of our consultants and Dr. Frame who will answer any last minute questions or concerns you might have. Once you have filled out your consent form and feel comfortable to begin, Dr. Frame will explain each step he takes in your new beauty enhancement.

To decrease the risk of bruising, avoid taking aspirin, motrin, Ibuprophen, advil and blood thinning medication 2-3 days before your treatment.

  • Avoid taking 1 week before the treatment: Don quai, evening primrose oil, ginkgo leaf, ginger, garlic, ginseng, feverfew.

What happens during the treatment?

Dr. Frame and his assistant will keep you calm, comfortable and informed during the process, even showing you with a mirror if you wish, how your treatment is going. Ice gel packs will be used to aid in the comfort level of the injections and some areas such as the lips and marionette lines will have had numbing cream applied. Lidocaine is also built into the product so the treatment becomes more comfortable as it progresses.

After the treatment

There is always a chance of swelling, redness and minor bruising in any injection site. Sometimes bruising may not appear until the next day but can usually be covered with yellow or orange colour based makeup. Taking an antihistamine post treatments, such as Reactine or Benedryl can help minimize swelling. Ice packs can also be used. Swelling usually subsides with a 1-3 days but bruising can last up to 2 weeks. It is recommended that you do not sleep on the treated area/s for 72 hours and keeping your head slightly elevated during sleep will assist in minimizing swelling. Don’t touch or massage the injection site as it is possible to move the product from where it was placed.

How many treatments will I need?

One treatment is often all that is needed but at your two week follow up appointment, you can have more Belotero added if needed. You will most likely want a “top-up” treatment within 6 months but you may not need a full re-treatment for 12 months.

Every patient is different and some metabolize fillers more quickly than others.

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 a 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 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.

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!

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.

Fillers

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 to 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!

Happily staying looking young with Dr. Frame and Nadine

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 putting myself in Dr. Frame’s hands 3 years ago, I don’t have to worry or fear 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.

After modeling 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.
