How to Freshen Your look with Botox
Lucere is the Premier Edmonton Botox Clinic with thousands of patient treatment experiences to add to our exceptional track record. Neuromodulators, like Botox and Dysport, are essential in the prevention of wrinkles and the treatment of wrinkles. We can minimize fine lines and wrinkles and help keep you looking fresh and rested. Botox and Dysport relax muscles and smooth out skin around the frown lines in between the eyebrows. Botox and Dysport also help relax muscles that cause wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet).
Our Botox clinic in Edmonton offers Cosmetic Concierge service with a smile. At Lucere, we are fortunate to have our Board Certified Dermatologist as a national trainer that teaches other doctors and nurse injectors on how to inject Botox and Filler.

1. How much does Botox Cost?
We are very proud to offer Regional Pricing based on areas treated to get you the best results. It is important for patients not to get caught up in price per unit comparisons because some clinics have been known to dilute their product to offer you a lower cost per unit. We use predictable, reliable products that are not diluted. We treat based on what you need. Not everyone needs the same number of units. Our patients are very impressed that we are able to achieve exceptional results with very reasonable pricing, especially since treatments are administered by a Board Certified Dermatologist and Cosmetic Dermatologist. This is why we can offer the best Botox Edmonton has to offer. Here, you can get the best Botox in Edmonton at very competitive rates and even lower rates than non-medical, professional injection sites for Botox. Book an appointment today and you’ll be surprised by our prices!
2. Where do I go to get the best Botox Edmonton has to offer?
There are now many places that offer Botox. You deserve to know and should not be afraid to ask your provider how long they have been injecting and how often they inject. You should also ask if they learned in a fellowship program or just through a weekend course. Unfortunately, in Alberta, it is very difficult to differentiate who you should seek expertise from. For example, dentists now offer this treatment but most dentists only learn from a weekend course. Just as a dermatologist is not likely the best person to do your dental fillings after learning through a weekend course, perhaps a dentist is not the best person to perform your skin treatment after learning from a weekend course.
3. What should I ask before I get Botox done?
Anything! And Everything! You should meet and get to know your injector face to face. Our injector is a Board Certified Dermatologist with years of experience and thousands of treatments to his name. He is more than happy to stand by his work and he trains and teaches on a national basis on advanced injection techniques. This is your face after all!! Why wouldn’t you seek out the best Botox treatment in Edmonton?
4. What are the qualifications I should ask for in a Botox injector?
You should ask how long, how many treatments and how frequently the treatment has been offered. You should even ask if the injector has had the treatment performed on themselves. At Lucere Dermatology & Laser Clinic, we believe that one must practice as one preaches. This means you have someone who believes in the treatment so much that he can stand by the product and the results.
5. Can I have Botox when I am pregnant?
This is not well studied, thus we do not offer this treatment to pregnant women. However, at Lucere Dermatology & Laser Clinic, we believe in offering the best of the best in skin treatments in Edmonton. Therefore, if you’re pregnant we will still advice on light procedures and skin care products that are safe to use. They will help you glow through this beautiful time in a women’s life. Even if you’re pregnant, talk to our board certified dermatologist and our skin care experts today!
6. Is Botox only for Women?
Not at all! We also offer Botox for men in Edmonton. Not only that, but we have a very diverse clientele. We have a large number of male clients because they believe that Lucere Dermatology & Laser Clinic is the best place for Botox for men in Edmonton. Your injector at Lucere Dermatology & Laser Clinic, our onsite Board Certified Dermatologist and Cosmetic Dermatologist, is a man who has had the treatment done himself. He is not shy to share this with others and believes that the beauty women seek and the youth men desire are achievable. Most men require more treatment units than women and initially they may require more frequent treatments. However, all patients, over time, will slowly require fewer treatment sessions.
7. How long does Botox Last?
The duration of effect varies. Often, for people who are new to the procedure, they may need the treatment more frequently. Most patients who have been with us for years will require approximately 2 treatments per year. We believe that our patients should not feel like visiting us is a revolving door. Many other places in Edmonton will try to treat you with very few units so you come in more frequently and spend more. We value your time and your resources and we are sensitive to patient finances, so our goal is to treat you right and to treat you fairly. Therefore, we will treat you only with the units you need. We hope that with optimal treatment you will only need to come in 2-3 times per year.
8. Where should I get injected for Botox?
We believe that for every possible reason you can think of, Lucere Dermatology & Laser Clinic is your destination of choice for the best Botox in Edmonton.
9. How many units of Botox do I Need?
The number of units required depends on the individual, the treatment areas being addressed and the previous treatment history of the patient. In other words, if you have a great injector, they will know to treat you based on the result and not haggle with the units. Too often, places that try to advertise a low dollar per unit will dilute their product and treat you with more units and ultimately charge you more!! Plus, a non-dermatologist injector is not an expert in skin science and will not know how to optimize treatments to get the desired results. Do yourself a favour, see someone who is a Board Certified Dermatologist, Laser Surgeon and Cosmetic Dermatologist – Book an appointment with Lucere Dermatology & Laser Clinic for the best Botox Edmonton has to offer and get the best professional expert treatment you can get. After all, this is your face. Look Good…Not Done.
10. I’ve heard dentists can administer Botox. Should I see a dermatologist for Botox?
Dentists have been injecting Botox for a relatively short time in Edmonton. Therefore, they haven’t had many treatments under their belt and most dentists learn through a three day course where they do not actually inject real patients. That means, for many dentists, their first few Botox patients are the first they have ever injected, and they do so without supervision! Make sure you learn the credentials of the dentist or nurse who is injecting you. Do not take chances and do not be a guinea pig. Our Board Certified Dermatologist has been injecting for over 7 years and has thousands of Botox, filler and laser cosmetic treatments to his name. He is not only a fully Certified Dermatologist, but he is also a proud graduate of the only formal Laser Surgery and Cosmetic Dermatology Fellowship in Canada available when he was graduating.
11. Can I react to Botox?
It is possible to have an adverse reaction to any medication which is why you should see someone who is trained in the management of complications of laser and cosmetic dermatologic procedures. Though the risk of adverse reactions is very low, Lucere Dermatology & Laser Clinic is proud to offer safe Botox treatments in Edmonton and the best Botox Edmonton has to offer. Our dermatologist is an expert who is often asked to intervene for other locations when patients from other clinics experience adverse side effect of skin treatments.
12. Does it hurt to get Botox?
We are proud to say that, based on the techniques we provide and our specialized methods, Lucere Dermatology & Laser Clinic are proud to offer comfortable and nearly pain free Botox in Edmonton. We are extremely proud of our growing clientele who come back repeatedly and are happy to share their very positive experience with us.
