Anti-aging treatments

Beyond helping you achieve a more refreshed appearance, our goal is to ensure you are informed and confident during any medical aesthetics treatment.

During the initial consultation, you will be asked to complete a questionnaire on your medical history, including medication, allergies and past surgical procedures. It is important for us to know what outcome you want to achieve so that we can give you the best advice. We will do our best to answer your questions and concerns.

Together, we can determine what treatments will help you achieve your goals, while respecting your budget.

NEUROMODULATOR TREATMENTS

For over twenty years, neuromodulator treatments [botulinum toxin] have been safely used to soften the signs of aging from muscle contraction. Targeting facial muscles at specific injection angles, we can help soften and reduce signs of skin fatigue and creasing, without loss of expression or sensation.

Contact us if you have questions or would like to book an appointment for a consultation.

WHAT AREAS OF FACIAL SKIN CAN BE REFRESHED WITH NEUROMODULATORS?

Areas of treatment include the outer eye or ‘crow’s feet’ region, frown lines between the eyebrows and across the forehead, and creases above the lips.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?

You will start to see visible results in three days, with the treatment coming into full effect within ten days.

HOW LONG DO THE TREATMENT RESULTS LAST?

Treatment results usually last anywhere from three to six months. The duration can vary depending on an individual patient’s lifestyle, skin condition, age and general health.

WHAT IS THE DURATION OF A TREATMENT SESSION?

Not long. Normally, sessions take anywhere from ten to twenty minutes.

DO I NEED TO TAKE ANY TIME OFF WORK?

No. There is no downtime. You can resume your normal daily activities, including work, immediately after your visit.

ARE THERE ANY SECONDARY EFFECTS?

There is a possibility of slight redness or swelling in the injection areas immediately after treatment, but these secondary effects normally subside within thirty to sixty minutes. If possible, avoid excessive touching of the injected area for the rest of the day.

JUVÉDERM® DERMAL FILLERS

As skin ages, it gradually loses the hyaluronic acid that maintains hydration and fullness. Juvéderm® dermal fillers are hyaluronic gels that, when injected in strategic, measured amounts at the perfect angles, help restore skin volume and facial contours. We offer the full range of Juvéderm® dermal fillers. These products enhance facial features and give natural results.

WHAT FACIAL AREAS CAN BE REFRESHED WITH JUVÉDERM® DERMAL FILLERS?

Areas of treatment include:

  • Lips: adding volume and contour, softening of peripheral creasing
  • Cheeks: adding volume and contour
  • Nasolabial folds (creasing from the lower nose to the corners of the mouth): softening of expression lines
  • Eyes: softening and reduction of circles
  • Lower face: softening of creasing from the lower corners of the mouth through the chin
  • Jawline: adding volume and contour

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?

The preliminary effects of dermal fillers are immediate, with the full effects usually becoming visible within two to three days.

HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST?

Treatment results usually last anywhere from 9 months to 2 years, depending on the type of dermal filler used, and the facial area treated.

WHAT IS THE DURATION OF A TREATMENT SESSION?

Not long. Upon injection, the dermal filler is gently smoothed into the target area to ensure perfect placement, volume and distribution. Normally, sessions take anywhere from fifteen to thirty minutes.

ARE DERMAL FILLER TREATMENTS PAINFUL?

Not usually. Most of our dermal fillers contain small amounts of lidocaine, a numbing agent that reduces any discomfort.

DO I NEED TO TAKE ANY TIME OFF WORK?

No. You can resume your normal daily activities, including work, immediately after your visit.

ARE THERE ANY SECONDARY EFFECTS?

There is a possibility of slight redness or swelling in the injection areas immediately after treatment, but these secondary effects normally subside within two days.

If you are prone to bruising, try to avoid taking ibuprofen (Advil) and anti-inflammatory medication 48 hours prior to treatment, and consider bringing a small amount of cosmetic cover-up to your treatment session.

CAN THE DERMAL FILLER BE REVERSED?

Yes. If you are not content with the results, the filler can be dissolved using a natural enzyme. The injected area can be restored to its pre-treatment state in only a few hours.
