Neuromodulators (Botox and Dysport) are purified proteins derived from botulinum toxin type A. They are injected into a muscle and work by temporarily disrupting nerve signals to the muscles, thereby causing a temporary reduction in the strength of the muscle contraction. Neuromodulators can be used to relax specific muscles of the face to produce a softening effect to the lines of the area. This effect may start to occur in 3–4 days after injection with full results seen in 14 days. The duration of the relaxation effect on average is 3-4 months, however this can be a shorter or longer length based on the individual. Neuromodulators can also be used to successfully treat medical conditions like hyperhidrosis (excessive under arm sweating) and bruxism (unconscious teeth clenching or grinding.
Platelet Rich Plasma
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma and is a revolutionary treatment method that utilizes components of your own blood to regenerate and revitalize your skin. The process begins by drawing a small amount of your own blood into a specially designed syringe and spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the blood components. The platelets, stem cells and growth factors are injected into the skin (face, neck, décolletage, hands) using a gold plated micro needling device. (A numbing cream is used to help with comfort.) The PRP promotes accelerated healing, new collagen and elastin formation. The result is a refreshed look that diminishes sagging skin, fine lines, discolouration, scarring and much more due to the increased collagen production.

Dermal fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring sugar substance found in our bodies, mainly in the skin and connective tissue. It provides moisture, plumpness and firmness to the skin and can carry a thousand times its weight in water. Fillers can be used to add volume to areas that have lost some of the fullness with age such as your face or lips, and can be used to hydrate, contour the face, soften fine lines and smooth out dynamic lines. Results can last from 6 - 12 months depending on type of filler used and area treated. Results are immediate, subtle and require no downtime. Filler areas I am currently treating are lips, chin and fine lines.
