Although our shampoo basins and stylist stations are located on the main floor, our Beauty & Rejuvenation services are located in the lower level where the washrooms are.
Fillers & Neuromodulators
Neuromodulators such as Botox® and Dysport® are used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by limiting muscle movement, where Dermal Fillers are injected beneath the surface of the skin to add volume and fullness.
The dermal fillers we carry are made of Hyalauronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring sugar in the body that helps facilitate the skin’s ability to retain hydration. Hyalauronic acid fillers are body-safe clear gels that can help restore volume loss, and refine facial features when injected into the skin.
Our cosmetic nurse injector will use an anaesthetic to help make the procedure as comfortable as possible and will inject filler, often with multiple injections to produce the best results.
- Avoid using Aspirin®, Advil®, ibuprofen, Motrin®, and Aleve®. (If absolutely necessary, you may use Tylenol®.)
- Avoid supplements that contain Omega 3.
- Avoid alcoholic beverages.
- Avoid dental procedures or cleanings for 2 weeks before.
- Avoid vaccinations for 2 weeks before.
48 hours before your appointment:
- Stop using anti-aging skincare which contains Tretinoin, Retinol, Retinoid, Glycolic Acid, or other exfoliators.
- Consider taking Arnica or Bromelain if you are prone to bruising.
- Do not wax, shave, pluck or use depilatory cream on the area to be treated.
Day of treatment:
- Arrive with your face washed, free of makeup.
- Please have something to eat and drink prior to arriving so you do not have an empty stomach.
Filler can be used to treat most areas of the face, including chin, jaw, cheeks, and lips.
We are proud to carry Revanesse®, a Canadian made premium line of Hylauronic Acid Dermal Fillers.
- To reduce redness and swelling from the injections, we recommend icing the area for 15 to 20 minutes, and avoiding applying makeup to the injection areas for the rest of the day.
- Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours after injections which can trigger bruising.
- Avoid touching or rubbing the area for 3 days, unless you have been instructed to massage the area by our Cosmetic Nurse Injector.
- After consulting your doctor, avoid blood thinning medication and alcoholic beverages for 24-48 hours to avoid bruising.
- Avoid dental procedures or cleanings for 2 weeks after.
- Avoid vaccinations for 2 weeks after.
Filler results are nearly immediate, but due to swelling it can take up to two weeks to see the final result.
Redness, swelling, bruising, and tenderness.
This can vary depending on the area, but generally between 4 to 12 months.
Yes, Hyaluronidase can be used to reverse the effects of filler. Hyalase is an enzyme our body naturally produces which breaks down hyaluronic acid, the main ingredient in dermal fillers. It can be injected to dissolve dermal filler.
Neuromodulators are wrinkle-relaxing injections that are commonly used to treat wrinkles, frown lines, and crows feet. They block the signals from nerves that cause the muscles to contract, gradually smoothing out the appearance of the overlying skin.
While they are quite similar, some people experience quicker results with Dysport®, noticing a reduction of wrinkles in only 2-3 days, whereas the results of Botox® generally take about a week to appear. Both neuromodulators can take up to 2 weeks for peak results. They both last around 3-4 months. Book your free consultation with our Cosmetic Nurse Injector to find out which one is right for you.
Our cosmetic nurse injector will will landmark and map out injections in the treatment area, and will use a thin needle to inject prescribed amounts of Botox® or Dysport® into your skin or muscles.
- After consulting with your doctor, avoid blood thinners and alcoholic beverages for 24-48 hours before your appointment to prevent bruising.
- Avoid touching or rubbing the area.
It can take as little as 3 days before results start to appear, but up to 14 days for the full effect.
The most popular areas for injecting neuromodulators are the forehead, crow’s feet, top lip lines, marionette lines, neck lines, underarms, and jaw.
It can be used to block nerve signals to overactive muscle by the sweat glands, reducing sweating of the area for up to 6 months.
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome, a condition characterised by pain in the jaw joint, can be relieved with neuromodulators by injecting it into key areas of the masseter muscle that contribute to TMJ syndrome to relax the muscle and relieve the pain.
Pain, swelling, or bruising at the injection site.
- Avoid touching the areas which were treated for 24 hours.
- Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours.
These treatments are meant to last 3-4 months. As the treatment wears off, the muscles will function as they did before the treatment, which means that the wrinkles will slowly begin to appear again. With further treatments, you can expect your results to last longer.
We recommend a follow-up appointment with our Cosmetic Nurse Injector, which can be done in person or via video call.
Microneedling & PRP
PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma. Blood is drawn from the arm, and the platelets and plasma are separated from the other blood cells in a centrifuge. The platelets contain active proteins and growth factors, which are very important for healing.
PRP can reduce wrinkles and deep creases, plump sagging skin, treat hair loss, diminish acne scars and improve your complexion.
PRP can help increase the number of hair follicles that can actively support healthy hair, improving both the thickness and density, extending the growth phase of the hair cycle, as well as the strengthening of hair roots.
PRP is injected into areas of scarring such as acne or surgical scars, stretch marks, etc to promote healing and reform damaged tissue. Platelets release growth factors which help the body to heal itself and in turn reduce the appearance of existing scars.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment, using a microneedling device. It can be used to treat age spots, blackheads, hyper-pigmentation, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and improves the appearance of dull, “tired-looking” skin.
Three treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart. After initial round of 3 treatments, you only need follow-up treatments every 12-18 months.
A vampire facial is a combination of microneedling and PRP. Plasma is applied to the skin topically and the microneedling treatment is performed to help the plasma penetrate the deeper layers of the skin. The micro needles penetrate up to 2mm below the surface of the skin, producing pathways for the PRP to travel deeper into the epidermis, boosting collagen and elastin production and improving skin texture overall.
You are advised to keep the PRP on your skin for 12-24 hours after the procedure so that it will continue to heal your skin. The longer you leave on the PRP, the better your results will be.
Avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen when outdoors. Avoid blood thinners and NSAIDs for 48 hours. Avoid makeup and swimming pools for 2 days after the procedure. Avoid smoking or drinking alcohol for 24-48 hours after your treatment.
