Think a facelift is the only way to give your look a lift and smooth out facial wrinkles? Think again! Today’s patients have an array of treatments to choose from. At our Ontario practice, the crease-erasing power of BOTOX® Cosmetic continues to astound patients. Injectable fillers like Juvederm® are effective in filling in creases and scars, and can even subtly augment your cheeks and lips. Microdermabrasion remains an impressive way to reveal a fresh, vibrant layer of skin. Lastly, our medical skin care products can give a healthy glow to your skin.
BOTOX® Cosmetic has really taken off, and for good reason. Patients from throughout Ontario have found that BOTOX® is an excellent semi-permanent treatment for frown lines, crow’s feet, thick bands in the neck, and all facial wrinkles. It creates no downtime and is nearly painless. In 2005, about 3.3 million people benefited from the impact that BOTOX® Cosmetic can have on the appearance of the forehead, face, and neck.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is made of the purified form of a toxin, which blocks the nerve impulses to the facial muscles that cause wrinkles. During the treatment, Dr. Brownrigg will target the muscles that contract to cause your wrinkles. Each muscle will receive about three injections, and the entire treatment lasts 10 to 30 minutes.
It’s common to experience some stinging at the injection site, while some patients experience bruises, small red marks, or swelling at the site. These disappear quickly, and swelling can be helped with simple massage.
The results of BOTOX® treatments last up to four months. People throughout Ontario are relying on BOTOX® Cosmetic as a quick, easy, and renewable way to revitalize their appearance and erase the fine lines that come with aging. As the effects of your BOTOX® treatment wear off, your wrinkles will return, but they can be safely treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic again as needed.
We offer a selection of different injectable fillers that can erase fine lines, add facial volume that is lost during the aging process, fill in scars, and augment your lips, cheeks or chin — all without surgery.
Juvederm® (marketed as Juvederm Ultra Plus™ XC with Lidocaine in Canada) uses hyaluronic acid, to correct wrinkles, advance the lips, correct deep folds, and even shape facial contours such as the chin and cheeks. Juvederm® is not animal-derived, so it poses a very low risk of allergic reaction and doesn't require an allergy test prior to injection.

A youthful face is typically defined by smooth contours including full cheeks and a defined jawline. The overall shape and contour of the face, however, changes with age. As facial volume is gradually lost, the skin becomes thinner and the effects of gravity can become apparent. One of the most noticeable changes that occur to the face over time, is the loss of volume or fullness. This may lead to flattening of features and hollowing of the cheeks. Juvederm™Voluma™ uses hyaluronic acid, a sugar that occurs naturally in your skin, to instantly restore lost facial volume in the cheeks and contour the chin and jawline area. Juvederm™Voluma™ also combines with collagen and elastin to improve skin structure and elasticity, and create a smooth look. The results are instant, natural looking and last for up to 18 months.
If you want to add definition to your lips, Juvederm® VOLBELLA® may be right for you. This injectable allows patients to achieve a natural look that can last up to a full year, without any type of surgery or downtime. It can deliver beautiful plumpness to the lips that provides a flattering complement to surrounding facial features while helping you look younger.
The natural aging process usually results in nasolabial folds (deep lines at the sides of the mouth) that can contribute to an aged and fatigued appearance. Fortunately, nasolabial folds can be treated with Juvederm® VOLIFT®. This dermal filler is designed to increase skin volume, reducing the prominence of deep lines. Results can last as long as 15 months. If you are seeking a minimally invasive treatment that can help you achieve a more vibrant, rejuvenated appearance, VOLIFT® may be the answer.
