This medication is used to temporarily paralyze muscles of expression. Very preventative! Some areas that may be treated are: forehead, frown (11’s or WTF lines), crows feet, jaw line, chin and lip (smokers or lip lines). Many treatments are considered “off label”. Generally treatment effects last 3-4 months.
Microneedling is an FDA approved, minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure. Also known as collagen induction therapy. Using precise needles to enter the very top layers of the skin, microneedling stimulates the replacement of surface skin cells, revealing young, glowing skin underneath. This treats fine lines, discoloration, acne scars, skin imperfections and improves the overall appearance of the skin. Treatment creates controlled micro injuries to the skin in order to stimulate collagen and elastin production. The skin begins to repair itself.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The inflammatory effect of the skin is very short and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkish that may last for 12 to 48 hours. Right after the treatment your skin will appear to be red almost like a sunburn. This redness will settle within 2 to 3 hours but the slight pink may still be present for the next couple days. Other common short term side effects include itching, discomfort, pinpoint bleeding or bruising, scabbing and darkening of the treated area. The skin may look and feel like sandpaper; These effects generally last 2 to 7 days as the treated skin flakes off and it is replaced by new tissue.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS
A reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, fewer signs of aging, reduced darkening of the skin, improvement in acne scars, improvement in stretch marks and a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS
Patients notice an immediate glow to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results can continue to improve up to six months after a treatment as collagen production continues.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED
Some patients only require a single treatment once per year to maintain optimal results however depending on your skin concerns more than one treatment may be used, spaced approximately 4 to 6 weeks apart to repair your skin. For advanced skin concerns It may be recommended to receive 6 to 8 sessions.
We use the Micropen ELITE and it is approved by Health Canada.
MICROTOX or SKINTOX
Using a diluted solution of dysport (off label) several injections are made very superficially in a variety of areas to achieve certain goals. The result is smaller pore size, more lift, improvement in crepey skin and fine lines and wrinkles. Also perfect for the younger population!
This treatment involves physical exfoliation and removal of those fine vellus hairs or “peach fuzz”. Using a surgical grade scalpel and a soft technique you will leave your skin refreshed and smooth.
Excessive sweating is a problem for many. Areas that are affected are commonly the armpits/axilla, hands, feet and torso. Neuromodulators, such as Dysport, can be used off label to treat this problem. Some may also choose to have this procedure done before an important event, such as a wedding. Those who wear dress shirts or blouses for work will also enjoy the dry armpits after a days work.
Coverage by many private insurers is also possible. Please inquire.
