Botox Cosmetic

Botox is a safe, non-­‐surgical and simple way to smooth out frown lines and wrinkles. It also prevents your lines and wrinkles from getting worse as you age. Our nurse injector has over 15 years of knowledge and experience in this field. As one of the Top 5 Botox clinics in Atlantic Canada, our goal is to provide you with a natural and conservative approach to cosmetic enhancement. Many people wish to look younger and less tired but are not ready for a surgical procedure. Botox allows them to take control of the aging process and look more refreshed and revitalized.

Benefits

  • No downtime.
  • Virtually painless.
  • Quick and easy treatment time.
  • Allows for natural movement and expressions.
  • Prevents lines and wrinkles from getting worse over time.
  • Lasts three to four months.

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

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.

Benefits

  • Reduced sweating for up to 8 months.
  • Quick and easy treatment.
  • Covered by most private health care providers.

How Botox Therapeutic works

The treatment is very simple. The Botox solution is injected into the area using a very fine needle.

What to expect from Botox Therapeutic

The treatment time is usually between 15 and 30 minutes depending on the area treated. There is minimal discomfort and you can carry on with your regular daily routine immediately after treatment.

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.

Benefits

  • 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.

SoftLift Makeover

Soft Lift® is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that combines Botox Cosmetic® with Juvederm® to give you a balanced, natural looking makeover in just one session. Botox Cosmetic® is used to treat the lines around the eyes and forehead which can make a person look tired or angry. Juvederm® is used to treat the lines around the mouth and to restore the loss of fullness that can occur with aging in the cheeks and chin. Soft Lift® can be done for both men and women in their 30’s, 40’s and 50’s.

Benefits

  • Can see visible improvement immediately
  • The full effect can be seen in as little as 2 weeks
  • Results are subtle and natural looking

BELKYRA™

BELKYRA is an innovative beauty breakthrough for both men and women who are bothered by fullness under the chin (sometimes referred to as a double chin) and wish to improve the appearance of their chin profile.

Benefits

  • No surgery required.
  • Minimal downtime.
  • Results are permanent

How BELKYRA™ works

The active ingredient in BELKYRA is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

What to expect from BELKYRA™

Your injector will administer a series of injections into the area under your chin at each treatment session. The injections themselves may take 15-20 mins and afterwards, you may apply ice or a cold pack to the treatment area. You can return to your normal routine immediately after treatment.

Microneedling PRP

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.

Benefits

  • 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.

V2 Microneedling Beauty Booster Treatment

Your skin is starting to change. Would you like to keep it replenished, hydrated and beautiful for longer? Protect and stimulate it with the V2 Microneedling Beauty Booster Treatment. This treatment combines two amazing technologies; the V2 Injector Gun with Redensity [1]. Having this treatment done at an experienced cosmetic dermatology clinic ensures you receive the best possible results and care.

Benefits

  • Results visible after just one session
  • Great for clients who want to plump and hydrate the skin
  • Provides increased skin glow, elasticity, texture and hydration
  • Prevents premature aging
  • Great for all skin types

How Microneedling Beauty Booster Treatment works

A unique form of microneedling, the Beauty Booster V2 Injection gun penetrates the skin while depositing the Redensity [1] product at the same time. This unique technology repairs the skin from a deeper level, giving you the best possible results. It delivers a high concentration of natural and free hyaluronic acid with a combination of anti-oxidants, amino acids, minerals and vitamins, all of which are naturally present in the skin. Can be used on the face, neck and decollete. For optimal results, it is recommended to have three sessions at 3 week intervals.

What to expect from the Beauty Booster Treatment

During your treatment session, micro-injections are made into the skin with the V2 Injector gun. The 9 point multi-needle and vacuum tip reduces discomfort while allowing for the extra benefits of microneedling. The treatment will blanket the skin and deliver the Redensity [1] to give the most accurate and precise treatment possible. Immediately after the treatment you will have some redness to the skin. Most patients will notice 3-4mm size bumps under the skin which normally resolve overnight. As with any treatment involving needles, you may experience possible tiny bruising from any number of injections points. Mineral makeup (available at the clinic) may be used to cover any redness or bruising immediately after treatment. As always, patient safety is one of our biggest priorities. Your nurse will ensure a clean, safe and comfortable environment during your 30 min treatment.
