Injectables can work all types of magic. They have many different purposes, from plumping up your lips to smoothing out forehead wrinkles.
At Enhanced Aesthetics we use dermal fillers to gradually shape, enhance and contour facial features tastefully and subtly.
Throughout our life, our skin changes. Sun exposure, hormonal changes and aging can all impact our skin’s appearance. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form.
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances made up of Hyaluronic Acid (a naturally occurring sugar molecule found in the body) that are injected below the surface of the skin to improve facial volume, asymmetry, smoothen wrinkles, and restore a youthful, rested appearance. Treatments are minimally invasive and generally very tolerable with little to no downtime.
Both men and women may be affected by submental fullness (double chin), which can be caused by weight gain, genetics or aging. Belkyra™ is a Health Canada approved safe injectable substance that is used to reduce and potentially eliminate fat under the chin to improve your profile.
Belkrya™ is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment, and consists of a series of injections of deoxycholic acid, which is naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down fat. When injected into fat cells, it leads to destruction of fat cells. These fat cells will be permanently destroyed, however maintaining healthy lifestyle is recommended to avoid producing additional fat cells.
Typically 2-4 treatments are needed for desired results, spaced at one month apart. Some people may find they need 6 treatments. Each treatment usually requires 2 syringes.
BOTOX® is a purified protein and revolutionary neuromodulator (muscle relaxant) which helps to cosmetically improve the appearance of facial lines with aging. Therapeutic uses and benefits of BOTOX® also include the treatment of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), Chronic Migraine, and TMJ tenderness.
After a treatment patients experience little more than pinpoint redness around the needle site. Results take effect between three and fourteen days of treatment. There is minimal downtime with neuromodulator treatment so that you can return to you daily activities after you leave our office.
