We offer Cosmetic Injectables tailored to you and your concerns.

Botox Cosmetic®

Cosmetic Injectables are made from a purified protein that temporarily causes facial muscles to relax, softening lines and wrinkles and reducing the severity of visible wrinkles and lines at rest.

Wrinkles are a natural part of the ageing process. With age, our skin gets thinner, drier and we lose elastin. The ability of our skin to protect itself is reduced as we age. Eventually, wrinkles, creases, and lines form on our skin.

Continuous muscle contraction is also another major contributor to facial wrinkles. Continuous muscle movement causes 'dynamic wrinkles' which only appear when the muscle is used.


Over time, if untreated, these wrinkles can become 'static wrinkles' which means they become permanently etched in our skin.

While the face is in motion the lines that appear are known as dynamic lines, however, repeated movement over time forms deeper lines and folds known as static lines.

Cosmetic Injectables work to prevent the formation of static lines by stopping the signal between the nerve and muscle.

The decreased movement in the muscle places less stress on the skin helping you maintain a fresh and youthful appearance. This treatment is most effective when used as a preventative measure.

Results

While Cosmetic Injectables are a relatively time-friendly and convenient treatment, it can take up to 14 days for you to see the full effect. Something to remember when you’re timing your treatment for a special event.

Side Effects

Depending on the sensitivity of your skin and any medications (like aspirin, ibuprofen, and other blood thinners) you may be taking, there is the chance of temporary, minor side effects including

- Mild swelling at or around the injection site
- Mild tenderness or bruising at or around the injection site
- Tiny red dots at the injection site
- A mild headache, depending on the treatment area

JUVÉDERM® Facial Fillers

When you love life and feel great, you want it to show. Over time your face may start to display those small signs of ageing that can leave you looking tired or sad, and less like the real you.

JUVÉDERM® can help : 

  • Smooth lines around your eyes

  • Restore fullness to your cheeks

  • Add volume and definition to your lips

  • Contour your chin and jawline

  • Create a natural look and natural feel

Facial ageing is the natural process that occurs when skin-cell renewal slows down. For our skin, this means less collagen, less elastin, and hyaluronic acid, which causes wrinkling and a loss of elasticity.

As we age, our faces are affected in a number of ways:

  • Bone density decreases and the structure of our face becomes more hollow, particularly around the eyes, cheeks, and chin.

  • Tissue volume is lost and the facial fat that keeps our skin looking full and smooth descends to the lower portion of our faces.

  • Environmental factors such as pollution, sun exposure, stressors, and smoking can take a toll on our faces.

All of these factors can make us feel like we look tired, worn out, or that we've lost that glow when we look in the mirror.

JUVEDERM® facial fillers are hyaluronic acid injectable treatments that replace lost volume, fill lines and wrinkles and restore moisture content- results can last up to 24 months depending on the treatment chosen.

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the body. The hyaluronic acid in JUVEDERM® combines with the water in your skin to gently restore elasticity and tone.

JUVEDERM® contains pain-reducing lidocaine which can help reduce discomfort for patients during the procedure. There are a range of formulations designed to treat different areas of the face, and visible results can be seen shortly after treatment.

Side Effects

The most common side effects occur within 24 hours or immediately post-treatment. These include swelling, bruising, redness, and tenderness.

You will also be counseled on post-treatment protocols regarding wearing makeup, and avoiding long periods of time in the sun, saunas, and UV rays and avoiding alcohol post treatment.

Immediate side effects usually disappear within days. However, depending on the type of Dermal Filler used, it can take a few weeks.

Next Steps

We encourage a complimentary follow-up appointment 2 weeks post-treatment to discuss your tailored treatment results.
