Botox Cosmetic®

Botox is a safe, non-surgical way to smooth out frown lines and wrinkles. It is also a powerful tool in preventing wrinkles and lines from getting worse. The nurse injector has over 10 years experience in this field and the focus is always on natural looking results. For clients looking for a way to look less tired, this is the ideal treatment to look relaxed and refreshed.

Benefits

  • No downtime.
  • Virtually painless.
  • Quick and easy.
  • Allows for natural movement and expressions.
  • Prevents lines and wrinkles from getting worse.
  • Lasts 3-5 months.

How it works:

Botox Cosmetic® is delivered using a very small needle going straight into the muscle. It blocks the communication between the nerve impulses and the muscle area causing the muscle to relax and remain smooth preventing wrinkles forming. The product itself is a sterile purified protein manufactured under strict quality control standards. We purchase this directly from the company and not via third parties.

What to expect:

This treatment involves a few tiny injections and feels like a small pinch. It takes 10-15 min to perform the treatment. Afterwards we ask that you do not touch the area or lie down for the next 2-4 hours. We ask that you do some facial exercises to the treated area for 15-20 reps to help the muscle “take in” the protein. Full results may not be seen for 2 weeks but most clients see the muscles start to relax in 3-4 days. We request first time clients to come for a follow up appointment at the 2 week mark so we can assess results. Any client is invited to book a follow up appointment if they have any questions or concerns. The effects of Botox lasts 3-5 months at which time another treatment is required if you want to maintain the relaxed and refreshed appearance. After several consecutive treatments, the effects may begin to last longer.

What our clients are saying:

I got botox done for the first time to my frown lines. People were asking me if I lost weight. I don’t know how smoothing out my frown lines made me look thinner but I am happy it does. A.B.

I love how I look like I just got back from vacation, all relaxed. S.W.

Now that I don’t have my permanent frown, my co-workers have stopped asking me what’s wrong. C.M.

Botox® Hyperhidrosis

This Botox Therapeutic treatment is used to treat excessive underarm sweating or hyperhidrosis. Injection with Botox interrupts the signal from the nerve to the sweat gland to reduce the sweating in the underarm area.

Benefits

  • Reduced sweating for up to 8 months or longer.
  • Covered by most private health providers.

How it works:

The treatment is very simple. After establishing the areas of excessive seating, botox therapeutic is injected using a very fine needls.

What to expect:

Come to the appointment wearing a shirt and undergarments that you don’t mind getting stained. We use betadine(brown solution) and corn starch to determine sweat pattern before injecting and this can be messy. There is minimal discomfort and mild swelling. There are no restrictions after the treatment.

What our clients are saying:

I love not having to carry extra shirts with me all the time. No more sweat stains. R.D.

Worth it! L.H.

Juvederm® Facial Filler

Juvederm® Facial Filler is made of Hyaluronic Acid, a component that is found naturally in the skin. When injected, it replaces volume that has been lost over time. Restoring volume loss gives you a refreshed, youthful and rejuvenated appearance. You will see immediate results. For some, this treatment is taking the place of surgical procedures like face lifts.

Benefits

  • Immediate and Instant Result.
  • Lasts 6-18 months.
  • Surgical results without surgery.
  • You can return to regular activities immediately after.

How it works:

As we age, we lose tissue volume which causes hollows, sagging, wrinkles and folds. By injecting Juvederm ( hyaluronic acid), into different depths of the skin, we can restore the appearance and shape of the face.

What to expect:

A comprehensive consult is where we start in order to develop a plan. This step is important because it may take several appointments to get to our desired end point. The consult will take approximately 30 minutes and an hour is booked for a treatment. At the actual treatment, Juvederm is injected using either a fine needle or a blunt tipped cannula. There is lidocaine ( a numbing agent) that is part of the hyaluronic acid which can help minimize any possible discomfort. Massaging of the product after injection helps mold it to how we want it to look. Most common side effect is bruising and it is recommended that you do not plan any special events for 2-3 weeks prior to an injection. Other than bruising ( bruises can be covered with makeup after 24 hours), recovery time is minimal and most clients return to normal activities right away.

What our clients are saying:

When I looked in the mirror after the treatment I was so very happy. Results are instant and gorgeous. My cheekbones look like they used to 20 years ago. I am looking forward to getting some more done in my jaw line. O.M.

I loved that you see the difference right away. I went to a wedding and friends and relatives kept telling me how great I looked and asking me what I did. I will never tell! G.N.

SoftLift® Treatment

SoftLift® is a non-surgical treatment that combines both Botox Cosmetic® with Juvederm® Filler to give you a balanced, natural looking appearance in one session. Botox Cosmetic® is used to treat expression lines to upper face ( frown, crows feet, forehead) that contribute to a tired or angry appearance. Juvederm® is used to treat areas of volume loss such as saggy chin and jawline, hollow cheeks and deflated lips. At your consultation a treatment plan will be created customized to you.

BELKYRA™

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

Benefits

  • No surgery required.
  • Downtime limited to some bruising and swelling.
  • Results are permanent.

How it works:

The active ingredient in BELKYRA is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule that can be found in the gall bladder that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat.

What to expect:

After a consultation to ensure you are a good candidate, a series of injections will be delivered into the area under your chin. After marking the area the injections take less than 10 minutes. You may experience a burning sensation that is alleviated with a cool pack. This sensation usually subsides fairly quickly. There are no restrictions after the treatment. 2-5 treatments will be required.
