Knowledge, experience, and skill all matter in selecting the right filler and administering it expertly. Dr. Brownrigg, a noted plastic surgeon, has the deep understanding of facial proportions and facial tissue needed to create natural-looking results.

A Closer Look at Injectables...

Wrinkle Relaxers

Dr. Brownrigg uses wrinkle relaxers to ease the look of lines and creases by relaxing facial muscles under the skin. This allows the skin above to smooth out for a more youthful appearance. BOTOX® Cosmetic, XEOMIN®, and Dysport® are examples of popular wrinkle relaxers, which are also called muscle relaxers.

These injections all contain botulinum toxin type A, a neurotoxin that stops muscle contractions at the injection site. They not only ease the appearance of unwanted facial lines but may also prevent new wrinkles from forming.

  • They are injected into specific facial muscles to reduce activity
  • The effects occur gradually over a week or two
  • Depending on the areas treated, the effects gradually wear off in three to four months

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers fill deep wrinkles or areas where volume has been lost. Our Ottawa facial surgeon skillfully injects these volumizers to lift the skin and restore a natural and more youthful appearance.

  • Fillers work by restoring volume to facial contours
  • The effect is immediate for most fillers, except Sculptra® Aesthetic, which depends on the growth of collagen to add volume
  • The effects generally last six to 12 months, though this can vary depending on the area treated and the amount and type of dermal filler used


How Dermal Fillers Work

Dermal fillers take a variety of approaches in rejuvenating your skin and understanding where and how to use them is an art in itself.

  • Restylane® and JUVÉDERM contain hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the skin. Both Restylane® and JUVÉDERM offer collections with different formulations of hyaluronic acid that tailor treatment to specific problem areas, such as nasolabial folds, under eye hollows, and cheeks
  • Sculptra® Aesthetic adds volume by encouraging the production of collagen in the skin. The main ingredient in Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biologically compatible and biodegradable synthetic material that stimulates your own skin to produce new collagen. Patients usually undergo several sessions over the course of a few months
  • RADIESSE® also stimulates collagen production but in a slightly different way. RADIESSE is made of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) gel microspheres that add volume immediately after the treatment and then slowly dissolve, leaving new collagen in its place

Kybella

Unlike other injectable treatments that restore volume for a more attractive appearance, Kybella improves your looks by removing excess fat in the chin.

To sculpt a more defined chin, Kybella uses a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid to kill fat cells, which are then naturally flushed away by the body over the course of a few weeks. Deoxycholic acid is a bile acid that is naturally produced by your body.

Treatment usually takes about 20 minutes. The number of sessions needed will vary for each person.

Can Multiple Injectables Be Used Together?

In many cases, Dr. Brownrigg can combine muscle relaxers and dermal fillers in a complementary manner to provide more comprehensive results than individual injections.

Dr. Brownrigg may also consider topical treatments such as chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing that, when used with fillers, can take years off your face.

The best way to determine which treatment or combination of treatments would bring out the best in your features is to request a consultation at our Ottawa practice. That allows Dr. Brownrigg to assess your skin and understand your goals so that he can make a recommendation tailored to your needs.
