As your skin ages, it doesn’t produce as much collagen. When this happens, the skin loses firmness and elasticity. Fortunately, there are treatments available that can reverse these effects. Dermal fillers are used to restore lost volume and create an even, smooth surface. You’ll want to choose a qualified doctor who uses a conservative approach when injecting dermal fillers.
Every cosmetic procedure is different, and each person has their own idea of what looks beautiful. At Face Plus Aesthetics, we offer consultations with our aestheticians who can explain your options and answer any questions you may have about treatments. We also provide information about cost and possible side effects.
The term ‘aging gracefully’ is used often when referring to someone over the age of 50 but just like how we strive to feel young at heart, there are things you can do to maintain your youthful appearance into the future. When it comes to facial rejuvenation, Botox and other cosmetic injectable treatments have been around for decades in Canada and are still being introduced as modern technology advances. Many people choose this treatment because of its non-invasive nature; it does not require surgery, requires little recovery time if any and results are visible immediately. At our office, we offer Botox, Fillers and Juvederm injections for a variety of reasons including:
At Face Plus Aesthetics, we specialize in aesthetic treatment such as Botox, Dysport, Xeomin and others. Although injectables do not provide long-lasting effects, they can actually enhance the natural look by smoothing out lines and creases. This helps to create an overall better-looking hand with reduced wrinkling. Learn more about our anti-aging services below.
One of the most common procedures performed at our clinic is the use of BOTOX®, which stands for botulinum toxin. The product contains pure protein from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum which causes muscle paralysis. Our qualified aesthetician team uses BOTOX® to relax skeletal muscles located on the face and neck areas where one may experience unwanted movement and lines. It works by preventing the release of substances that cause contraction in the target area. Unlike surgeries, BOTOX® has no side effects. However, some clients who have had multiple injections will notice bruising, redness and tenderness in the treated area.
Dysport is a new injection formulation derived from Botox, which is intended to strengthen facial muscles expressions. As Dysport was developed specifically to enhance the effectiveness of BOTOX®, many patients find that their forehead wrinkles disappear while retaining the desired effect and without the risk of complications associated with BOTOX®. Results with Dysport appear to last longer than those obtained with traditional Botox treatments. Side effects include mild discomfort and slight swelling after the initial injection. Since Dysport® is more concentrated than BOTOX®, less volume is injected per area.
Deoxycholic acid fillers is a substance that breaks down the fat in your body. Kybella is a fantastic injection remedy that can help with fat cells that get dotted beneath your chin, also known as the jowls. Kybella is an FDA-approved injection drug that helps in destroying those nasty fat cells caused by pregnancy or just genetics. The interesting thing about Kybella is that it can be tailored to fit your unique body needs. Your treatment course would vary from patient to patient and is dependent on how thick or full the tissue below your chin is because there are no two cases exactly alike.
The newest member of the Botulinum toxin family is called Xeomin (abobotulinumtoxinA). It is approved by Health Canada as a treatment for moderate to severe glabellar lines (frowning), crow’s feet lines, and frown lines between the eyes. Xeomin provides temporary relief from the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles, resulting in smoother-looking faces. It can improve the appearance of scarring. It also improves the appearance of rhytids, hollowed cheeks, and folds in the skin, even if you don’t have obvious aging concerns.
Rejuvenating facials help reduce the visible signs of aging while leaving the skin hydrated and healthy. They treat deep down problems, such as wrinkles, tighten your skin, improve your texture, and so much more!. Facial peels can soften acne breakouts, smooth rough skin, prevent further damage, and brighten dark spots.
Microneedling stimulates the growth of collagen production in the dermis, giving it a firmer, toner-like appearance. Microneedling removes damaged outer layers of the skin allowing deeper penetration into the upper layers. New collagen is formed and becomes integrated into existing tissue causing a tighter and fresher appearing complexion.
