Dermal Fillers and Injectables in Vancouver: Smooth, Lift, and Tighten with Dr. Roz Kamani

It’s a fact. Over time, the skin develops fine lines and loses its glowy fullness. For those determined to slow the hands of time, Dermal Fillers are a solution commonly used by those who want to diminish the signs of ageing or play up their favourite features. It’s not commonly known but volume loss is responsible for many of the signs traditionally associated with ageing— wrinkling, and sagging. This is partly because of collagen breakdown and as the skin thins it’s easier for lines to form and set. Dermal Fillers smooth wrinkles and creases by replacing the missing volume. When administered by a skilled doctor, they effectively work to recapture the fresh-faced fullness of a healthy, youthful complexion. Today, more than one million people choose to have Dermal Fillers performed annually. As an aesthetic doctor in Vancouver, Dr. Roz Kamani is an authority on all types of injectable solutions. For clients who want to enhance their cheeks, jawline, and lips, she works one-on-one, analyzing each client’s unique facial structure before coming up with treatments designed to help people realize their individual goals. For patients considering rejuvenating treatments, Dr. Roz Kamani uses a Dermal Filler comprised of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the body that keeps the skin plump and hydrated. Like many other vital components, the natural stores of hyaluronic acid in the body gradually diminish with age. As these deplete, the effects of ageing become more pronounced and noticeable. Before administering any treatment, Dr. Kamani studies the shape and curvature of her patient’s face. Dermal Fillers must be injected strategically to achieve results that are... read more

Vancouver CoolSculpting Doctor Explains Weight Loss vs. Fat Reduction

For anyone eager to lose a few inches of seasonal flub, CoolSculpting’s fat-freezing technology is a non-surgical, scientifically proven way to reduce pockets of fat in trouble spots such as the abdomen in as little as one session. As a CoolSculpting doctor in Vancouver, Roz Kamani has always been passionate about understanding the balance between health and beauty. After establishing her family practice in 2000, she branched out into medical aesthetics and has since become recognized as one of the premier Vancouver Botox specialist, and one of the most respected and skilled physicians in this field. When Doctor Kamani added CoolSculpting to her practice, she became one of the first doctors to introduce it to the neighbourhood of Kitsilano. CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared to be used on different areas of the body. This includes visible bulges around the thighs, abdomen and flanks, bra fat, back fat, and those sneaky areas under the buttocks and upper arms.  Unlike faddy diets, CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment. It actually reduces the amount of fat in your body. Fat reduction and weight loss are two very different things. Losing weight doesn’t always lead to a more sculpted appearance—but fat reduction can change the shape and contour of your body. The number of fat cells in your body is set during childhood and adolescence. That number is specific to you and varies from person to person. Gaining weight causes these fat cells to expand, which in turn causes your waistline (and hips, and buttocks, and thighs) to swell. When you eat healthy and exercise regularly, those cells shrink, leading to a slimmer and... read more

Botox Injections for Glabellar Frown Lines (and More)

Looking for a solution to glabellar frown lines (aka forehead wrinkles)? Botox has been a popular talking point ever since it was approved for cosmetic use in 2002. In fact, one of its first approved cosmetic uses was the improvement of moderate-to-severe forehead lines.   A top area of concern for many patients, forehead creasing is an enormously common sign of ageing. Age often isn’t the issue, however. Even among the relatively young, it’s not too long before bad habits and lifestyle choices, such as late nights, binge drinking, and frenetic work schedules, can result in some truly unruly facial topography.   As a Botox doctor in Vancouver, Dr. Roz Kamani is renowned as an injection specialist who has been working to help clients enhance and rejuvenate their features over the last fifteen years.   To understand how Botox works, it’s important to understand why wrinkles form. What happens over time is that the skin will crease (wrinkle) over areas where muscles contract. Botox temporarily freezes these muscles, meaning treated areas stay flat. If you can’t physically frown, it stands to reason the lines formed where these muscles contract will soften and straighten out. Using Botox keeps new wrinkles from forming while the appearance of existing lines is temporarily reduced or eliminated.   Dosages vary from client to client. Since the objective is to look fresh rather than frozen, Dr. Kamani works with your natural facial contours and anatomy, strategically injecting Botox to meet individual preferences and goals.   The process is considered a non-surgical treatment, but there is often a bit of discomfort during the procedure. Depending on... read more

ZO Anti-Ageing Products Available for a Limited Time at Special Pricing

As a medical aesthetician, finding effective skincare is a primary concern for many of the men and women who visit Dr. Roz Kamani at her skincare clinic in Vancouver.   Anti-ageing skincare can be a tough subject to broach. Besides the trauma of actually seeing your first wrinkle or age spot, the market is vast, and many of the products are prohibitively expensive. Moreover, most over-the-counter solutions are not scientifically proven, which means you could potentially be throwing money an upscale moisturizer with a fancy ingredient list.   Dr. Roz Kamani has always provided clients with access to pharmaceutical-grade products that aren’t available in drug stores or over the counter. While she has been a long-time advocate for ZO Skin Health, she will no longer be carrying the product line, making this an ideal time to take advantage of what’s left in the office.   Developed by Doctor Zein Obagi of Beverly Hills, all ZO formulas are clinically tested and offer the very latest advances in skin therapy technologies. In just two or three weeks, most clients see noticeable results.   ZO Anti-Ageing The ZO product line offers three “programs.” These comprehensive skincare kits contain all the necessary products (and comprehensive instructions) to start the skincare novice off strong. Each kit comes with a cleanser, polish, moisturizer, and protection—with repair and anti-ageing products in advanced kits.   Very broadly, the kits are broken down into three levels. Level I is for regular skin care, Level II is for those exhibiting early signs, and Level III is for advanced signs of ageing. To put the strength of these products in... read more

Belkyra in Vancouver: Sculpt Your Chin without Surgery

After Botox, the hottest new aesthetic treatment in Vancouver is Belkyra. Aimed at all those who have noticed a slackening around the jawline and under the chin, this procedure refines that double chin or pouch of fat.   Made by Allergan, the creators of Botox, Belkyra is a fat-dissolving injection used specifically for chin sculpting containing synthesized deoxycholic acid, a component found naturally within the human body. When strategically injected below the chin, the compound breaks down the fat cells, which are then naturally absorbed and disposed off by the body.   Belkyra in Vancouver Belkyra, called Kybella in the United States, was approved for use in injectable cosmetic services in 2014. It came to Canada in 2018.   “Deoxycholic acid is found naturally in the body, aiding in digestion and the absorption of dietary fats. The deoxycholic acid drug substance used in chin sculpting is synthetically derived but functions in exactly the same way.”   Before the area is treated, Dr. Kamani will run you through what’s expected and ensure you’re a good candidate for the process.   Chin sculpting is carried out through a series of injections and requires no incisions. A numbing treatment is applied before the procedure to minimize discomfort. The injection zone will also be mapped out to ensure the treatment is specifically tailored to your anatomy and problem areas.   Injection amounts tend to vary as the treatment is specific to every patient’s unique anatomical landmarks. However, a set of 20-40 little jabs is pretty standard. It should be noted that although a numbing agent is used, the procedure, which takes around half... read more
