Dr. Brownrigg offers different types of lip augmentation for his patients seeking Ontario non-surgical treatments, including modern injectable fillers such as Restylane® SubQ™ and Juvederm®, and augmentation with fat transfer.

In addition to lip augmentation, there are a variety of non-surgical treatments available to patients who want to rejuvenate or redefine their facial aesthetics. BOTOX® Cosmetic, popular with over three million patients, is an ideal way to eliminate all facial wrinkles. Dr. Brownrigg also now offers Latisse®, the only FDA approved treatment for thickening, darkening, and growing eyelashes.
