How Botox Cosmetic works
Botox Cosmetic treatment involves an injection (derived from a sterile, purified protein manufactured under strict quality control standards) straight into the muscle. By blocking nerve impulses from reaching the muscle area, Botox causes the muscle to relax, smoothing away the surface wrinkle.
What to expect from a Botox Cosmetic treatment
The treatment involves a few tiny injections using a very fine needle. A Botox session usually only takes about 10‐15 minutes. You should refrain from rubbing the treated area or lying down for at least 4 hours. The muscle starts to relax in three to four days with your peak results at two weeks. We advise you to come back for a recheck appointment to assess the results at this time. The effects of Botox cosmetic usually last three to four months, at which time another injection is required. After repeated treatments the effects often begin to last longer.
Botox Therapeutic is used to treat hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating in the underarms and palms. Injection with Botox interrupts the signal from the nerve to the sweat gland to reduce the sweating in the area that is affected.
- Reduced sweating for up to 8 months.
- Quick and easy treatment.
- Covered by most private health care providers.
How Botox Therapeutic works

Facial Fillers – Juvederm, Teosyal and Restylane
Fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, a component that is found naturally in the skin. When injected into the skin, it gives the face a smooth and natural looking appearance by softening fine lines and wrinkles and restoring volume loss. The majority of patients see results immediately after their treatment with optimal results lasting 6 months or longer, some only requiring a single treatment.
- Can provide a natural look when done by an experienced injector.
- Lasts 6‐12 months.
- No allergy testing required.
- Softens fine lines and wrinkles, adds volume and contour to the face.
How injectable fillers work
As we age, we lose hyaluronic acid and collagen in the skin which causes hollows, sagging, lines, wrinkles and folds. By injecting hyaluronic acid into the skin, we can mimic the effects of natural hyaluronic acid and produce the look and feel of hydrated skin. By filling depressions in the skin, wrinkles and folds are considerably softened and/or eliminated. Injections of hyaluronic acid can also stimulate production of collagen to further enhance the skin’s youthful look and vitality.
What to expect from injectable fillers
Hyaluronic acid is injected into the skin using a very fine needle. In some cases, a topical anesthetic may be used. The injection itself usually takes 30 minutes and results are instantaneous. Following the treatment the nurse injector may gently massage the treated areas to mold the product into the skin. Recovery time after a treatment is minimal and most patients return to their normal routines right away.

Platelet rich plasma, otherwise known as PRP is a treatment that uses the plasma in your own blood to help regenerate the skin and/or hair follicles. It can be used to treat the scalp and/or face, neck, chest, decollete or backs of the hands.
- Can treat both the scalp as well as areas of the face and body
- Stimulates hair growth on the scalp for both men and women
- Promotes collagen growth
- Regenerates tissue and speeds healing
- Helps to smooth and tighten the skin
- Can be used immediately after Profractional laser to help speed up healing of the skin
How PRP works
Our blood contains red blood cells and plasma. This platelet rich plasma or PRP is rich in growth factor hormones that naturally encourage cell function and healing. When injected into specific areas, the PRP acts as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerates tissue, naturally smoothens and tightens the skin and stimulates hair growth (on the scalp). The most efficient way of reintroducing PRP back into the skin or scalp is through injection.
What to expect from PRP
To access the plasma, we will draw a vial of your blood and spin it in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the plasma. The PRP is reinjected into the treatment area by utilizing a microneedling device called the U225 meso injector gun system which allows for a much faster, more comfortable treatment. Following the treatment, the skin or scalp should not be washed until the next morning.
