Botox

Working with Dr. Robert Krushel, we are excited to bring Botox clinics to Spa 901.

Targeting fine lines and wrinkles, Botox and Dysport are one of the most effective ways to look younger and bring balance to your facial features.   They are especially useful in the upper face for forehead lines, frown line’s between the eyebrows and crow’s feet.  However, treatments can also be very useful in the lower face as they can also be used to reduce a downturned smile, gummy smile, bunny nose, and prominent neck skin bands.

I have been a Board Certified gynecological surgeon of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons for 25 years, and have been performing Botox and Dermal fillers services in Southern Alberta and the Northwest Territories for several years.  Together with my wife Andrea, I operate Glow Medical Aesthetics based out of Lethbridge, Alberta.  

Non-surgical Medical Aesthetics is a rapidly evolving field and it gives me great pleasure to bring these non-surgical anti-aging treatments to our clients.  I am excited to now be offering these services at Spa 901  in Fernie, BC. 

Botox Is administered by injecting facial muscles using very small needles.  Some northerners say the needle poke feels like a little mosquito bite, but without the itching and swelling.

These medications, when administered by an experienced physician, are a safe, effective non-surgical answer to achieving a well-rested and invigorated appearance

You must be over the age of 19 to receive Botox at one of our clinics.

You can not receive botox, if you have any of the following contraindications: 

  • Allergy to BOTOX or Dysport
  • Pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are currently breastfeeding.
  • Allergy to eggs or milk
  • Some progressive and severe neurological diseases (i.e. myasthenia gravis)

Possible side effects include:

  • Redness and swelling, bruising and discolouration, itching, and pain and tenderness at the injection sites, which could last for several days.
  • Rare side effects include ptosis (eyelid drooping), which may last for several weeks. 

Botox does not increase the volume of the face and does not cause plump or filling effects.  Dr. Krushel seeks to reduce wrinkles and fine lines while leaving natural expressions intact, resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance.

Typically 3 months.  However this depends very much on one’s metabolism and the strength of their muscles.  Effects start approximately 1 week after the injection.

You will begin to feel and see some changes in approximately 2-4 days, following  a treatment, with the full effect occurring in two weeks. We strive to create results that make the treatment area appear smoother, with reduced facial lines and wrinkles, while still looking natural.

Possible effects include redness and swelling, bruising and discolouration, itching, and pain and
tenderness at the injection sites. These side effects may last for several days. You may take
acetaminophen (Tylenol). Rare side effects include ptosis (eyelid drooping), which may last for several
weeks.


For 1 Hour: Exercise the treatment muscles by frowning, raising your eyebrows, and smiling.
For 3 Hours: Remain upright (do not lie down) and do not rub the treated areas. We recommend
avoiding strenuous physical activity, hot tubs, saunas, facials, alcohol, and aspirin/anti-inflammatories for
at least several hours, and ideally, the rest of the day.

Neuromodulator treatments provide results which usually last for 3 to 4 months. Over time repeated
treatments may provide a satisfactory result for longer, and/or with less units required to maintain a
similar result.

$10 per unit.  Sessions typically range from 10 – 60 units ($100 – 600 + tax), dependent on number of areas you are looking to have treated.  (Please be aware that these these clinics are operated by Dr.Krushel, Glow Medical Aesthetics, and payment will be collected directly from him at the end of the appointment.)
