Today’s nonsurgical options are more plentiful than ever, from quick injectables to more significant resurfacing procedures. We offer dermal fillers, BOTOX®, and more for our Toronto-area patients.
Wondering how you should decide between all these popular anti-aging options? Here’s what to consider when thinking about which treatment is best for you.
Our Toronto-area patients use these injections to treat dynamic wrinkles, which are wrinkles caused by the repetitive motion of facial expressions over time. These include crow’s feet and frown lines. Wrinkle-smoothing injections work by temporarily blocking the nerve signals that trigger muscle movement, preventing wrinkles from forming in the first place.
At Mississauga Cosmetic Surgery Clinic, we offer BOTOX Cosmetic to patients from Mississauga, Oakville, Brampton, and other areas. You can see an example of its effects in these before-and-after photos of a 49-year-old patient.
These products come in a wide array of formulations to suit the varying needs of patients — and they work a bit differently than wrinkle-smoothing injectables. Whereas BOTOX will have a direct effect on muscle movement, dermal fillers actually fill wrinkles from under the skin with a soft gel, adding volume and softness to gently reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Dermal fillers are especially useful on lines around the nose and mouth, such as marionette lines, as well as sunken or hollow cheeks. As with wrinkle-smoothing injectables, the effect is temporary, as the body will eventually absorb the gel added via dermal fillers.
Peels and laser skin resurfacing
Rather than focusing on individual wrinkles, these procedures are excellent for creating evenness in tone and texture of the whole face. They can be customized to treat the effects of sun damage and other surface irregularities, such as acne scars or dark spots.
Patients today have many options for facial rejuvenation. Each treatment can be customized to your own specific needs. If you would like to learn more about BOTOX, dermal fillers, and other popular options, request a consultation with us online or call the practice at (905) 273-3045.
