Botox Cosmetic & Fillers
Botox is a brand name of a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. There are other brand names for botulinum, such as Xeomin. In large amounts, this toxin can cause botulism, which you probably associate with food poisoning. Despite the fact that one of the most serious complications of botulism is paralysis, scientists have discovered a way to use it to human advantage. Small, diluted amounts can be directly injected into specific muscles causing controlled weakening of the muscles.
The FDA approved such usage in the late 1980s upon the discovery that Botox could stop ailments like blepharospasm (uncontrolled blinking) and strabismus (lazy eye). Doctors have been using Botox for years to successfully treat wrinkles and facial creases. In April 2002, Botox gained FDA approval for treatment of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows - called glabellar lines. However, Botox is often used for other areas of the face as well.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can no longer contract, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften.
It is most often used on forehead lines, crow's feet (lines around the eye) and frown lines. Wrinkles caused by sun damage and gravity will not respond to Botox.
How Is a Botox Procedure Performed?
Botox injections take only a few minutes and no anesthesia is required. Botox is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. It generally takes three to seven days to take full effect and it is best to avoid alcohol at least one week prior to treatment. Aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications should be avoided two weeks before treatment in order to reduce bruising.
How Long Does a Botox Injection Last?
The effects from Botox will last four to six months. As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to re-appear and wrinkles need to be re-treated. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are being trained to relax.
What Are the Side Effects of Botox?
Temporary bruising is the most common side effect of Botox. Headaches, which resolve in 24-48 hours, can occur, but this is rare. A small percentage of patients may develop eyelid drooping. This usually resolves in three weeks. This usually happens when the Botox moves around so you shouldn't rub the treated area for 12 hours after injection or lay down for three to four hours.
Who Should Not Receive Botox?
Patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding or have a neurological disease should not use Botox. Since Botox doesn't work for all wrinkles, a consultation with a doctor is recommended.
Will Insurance Pay For Botox?
Insurance coverage varies for Botox injections, depending largely on the medical necessity of your condition. Botox is not generally covered by insurance when used for cosmetic purposes. Check with your insurance carrier for coverage details.

Chemical Peels & Diamond dermbrasion
Chemical peels, also known as chemical resurfacing, are cosmetic treatments to produce an improved appearance of the face. Chemical peels are used for the treatment of photo-aging (from sun damage), wrinkles, scarring, acne, precancerous lesions, and discoloration (or dyschromia). Chemical peels produce controlled injury to the skin that promotes the growth of new skin with an improved appearance.
Many different chemicals are used including glycolic acid, AHA, (TCA), salicylic acid, “Jessners” solution, and phenol. The different chemical solutions produce different degrees of injury to the skin. There are two layers of the skin; the outer layer is called the epidermis and the inner layer, the dermis. Superficial peels (e.g. glycolic acid) produce very superficial injury confined to the epidermis. Superficial peels can help improve conditions such as acne and dyschromia. Deeper peels (e.g. phenol peels) produce injury within the dermis and can reverse moderate-to-severe photo-aging and wrinkles. In general, the deeper peels offer the most dramatic results but require longer recovery periods and carry a higher risk of complications.
Chemical peels have actually been used for hundreds of years and have a proven safety record in the proper hands. However, chemical peels are not for everyone. For example, people who are in poor general health should not get peels. Also, active infections and certain medications (i.e. isotretinoin (Accutane)) may preclude the use of certain types of chemical peels, especially medium and deep. Sometimes, people with abnormal scarring, certain skin diseases, or recent surgeries should not have a chemical peel. You and your physician should decide if chemical peels are safe for you.
Chemical Peel Procedure:
Chemical peels usually begin with vigorous cleansing of the skin. The depth of the peel depends on the chemical used. Very light peels (e.g. low potency glycolic acid, 10-20% TCA) only penetrate the dead skin cells that sit atop the epidermis and produce almost no injury. Sometimes, this level of peel is called “exfoliation”. Light peels (70% glycolic acid, 25-35% TCA) injure the entire epidermis and stimulate the regeneration of a new epidermis. This level of chemical peel may produce a burning sensation during the procedure. Recovery from light peels is quick- hence the name “lunchtime peel”. Improvement in the appearance of photo-aged skin and scarring is usually subtle at best. Medium depth peels involve injury to the upper level of the dermis. Injury to the dermis stimulates the formation of collagen and “plumps” up the skin. Usually 35% TCA, in combination with another chemical such as glycolic acid, is used safely with minimal discomfort. Burning is the most common complaint during the procedure and this is usually well controlled with cool compresses or topical anesthetics. Deep peels involve injury to the mid dermis and are usually performed using a phenol solution. A deep chemical peel may offer dramatic results such as elimination of deep furrows and scars. This peel can take years off aging skin in just minutes. Vitalize Peel® is the only superficial peel suitable for all skin tones and complexions. This special formulation includes a unique blend of peeling agents: alpha-hydroxy acids, beta-hydroxy acids, resorcinol, and retinoic acid (obtained by physicians only). While results are predictable and noticeable after just one peel, dramatic results are seen after a series of peels. This is a highly effective rejuvenation procedure with no downtime.

REFIRM - SKIN TIGHTENING
What is No-Needle Mesotherapy and how does it work? Needle-free Mesotherapy, also known as injection-free, no-needle or virtual mesotherapy, electroporation, is currently the most popular alternative to invasive injection beauty. It holds the same benefits as more invasive techniques, yet is painless, non-bruising, natural, and safe. No-needle Mesotherapy has no side effects, is suitable for all skin types, and is the recommended treatment for those who believe in Botox or seek a holistic approach in lieu of needles. The process can be used as a supplement or an alternative to Botox, peels, antioxidants, laser resurfacing, topical creams, facelifts, and other anti-aging and preventative treatments. Electrophoresis uses the electroporation and electro-osmosis, allowing for maximum use of the water channel protein while transporting healthy ingredients, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly to the mesoderm, which are then quickly absorbed by the skin—absorbing up to 2,000 times more than other traditional methods. The effects are significant
What can No-Needle Mesotherapy treat? The noninvasive process is often used for wrinkle lifting, pigmentation reduction, whitening, and to achieve an overall more youthful appearance. After treatment, patients commonly describe skin as appearing and feeling rejuvenated, refreshed, smooth, radiant, more glowy, and firmer.
What type of Meso-Facials Does Skin Renu offer? there are three types of needle-free Mesotherapy facials— Meso-Lifting Facial, Bio Rejuvenating Facial, and Meso-Detoxifying Facial, available in packages of 3 and 6 for optimal results.
We will customize your facial, using the appropriate products for you. We are happy to offer Meso-Facials combined with Diamond-dermabrasion/Microcurrent or Chemical Peels treatments—based on your skin needs, concerns, and goals.
We always recommend a consultation/introductory treatment followed by a course of 3x or 6x sessions, but please contact us @905-856-6767 to determine what service is best for you.
What are the risks and potential complications from No-Needle Mesotherapy treatment? There are no risks or side effects. Treatments are generally described as comfortable but sometimes are said to feel like a ‘pins and needles’ sensation.
Who should not have No-Needle Mesotherapy treatment? There are very few medical reasons why patients should not undergo this treatment. Due to the electrical output of the devices used, treatment is not suitable for pregnant women or those people with epilepsy, pacemakers or any serious psychological or medical condition.

Dermal Fillers Now Being Used For Volumetric Filling And Contouring
In Areas Such As The Cheek, Chin and Jaw Line, The Future Of Cosmetic Enhancement Belongs To Injectables.
Since November 2006, several studies have shown an increasing number of Canadians are choosing to undergo non-invasive medical cosmetic enhancement procedures. According to Canada’s top cosmetic physicians, there's an emergence of a new generation of highly advanced dermal fillers – most notably Revanesse® . Traditional facial surgery for contouring, lifting and rejuvenating may soon be a thing of the past.
“Using injectables for volumetric filling and contouring in the areas of the cheek, chin and jaw line is the most innovative way that the newest dermal fillers are being used, and are ideal especially because they have more longevity than other injectables previously made available,” explains Dr. Lisa Kellett, a cosmetic dermatologist.
The newest generation of dermal fillers are now enabling physicians to provide full facial rejuvenation in a multitude of ways to address the multitude of ways we age. Whereas traditionally, dermal fillers have been used to erase fine lines and winkles, smooth deep folds and enhance the lips. Fillers such as Revanesse are also able to improve facial contours that may be sagging over time, partially due to their longevity and partially due to their unique properties. Lasting from 6 to 14 months. Price varies, consultations are free. Ask us today.
