Cosmetic Injectables Designed to Fight the Signs of Aging
Botox and Dysport
Neuromodulators temporarily block or weaken the ability of muscles to contract, thereby, softening the skin lying above the muscle. Commonly treated areas include between eyebrows (Glabella), forehead (Frontalis), or crow’s feet (lateral canthal region). The effect can last up to 3 months.
Those clients who exercise more may require more frequent treatments.
DermNurse Medical Aesthetics is generally conservative with neuromodulator dosing to achieve natural-looking results. Touch-ups may be required after two weeks from the initial treatment.
We offer Health Canada-approved dermal filler products, including Restylane, and Teosyal.
Dermal filler is composed of simple sugar cross-linked into a gel, which eventually becomes reabsorbed by the body and used as energy. These products are generally used to replace volume where volume has been lost but can also be used to smooth out lines and wrinkles.
Effects can last up to 12 to 18 months. Clients who are very physically active may experience a shorter duration in filler longevity.
Common treatment areas include cheeks, temples, laugh lines and lips. Other areas include the brows for a brow lift, nose to create a smoother contour or symmetry, or tear troughs for a more rested and refreshed appearance.
DermNurse Medical Aesthetics is conservative in its approach to dermal filler injections. It is better to under-correct the volume loss than overcorrect. Having too much filler results in looking "overdone," which is worse than being treated at all.
