BOTOX COSMETIC® injections are comprised of a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium and can be used to weaken muscles that produce undesirable facial expressions. This injectable treatment is most commonly used to weaken the muscles that create frown lines between the eyebrows. BOTOX COSMETIC® treatment can also be used to diminish crow’s feet and forehead lines. The entire procedure can take as little as 15 minutes, and the results will last from 4 to 6 months.

This neuromodulator is now available for treatment of upper facial aging, including frown and forehead lines as well as crow’s feet. Dr. Pugash will discuss with you its role as an alternative to BOTOX COSMETIC® treatment.

Restylane is a hyaluronic acid gel that is used to fill out lips, facial wrinkles and facial folds. Do not be misled by the word ‘acid’ – these products are clear, cool gels that do not damage the tissues when they are injected. Perlane is a slightly longer-lasting version of Restylane and is used for lip enhancement and the correction of deep folds. Treatment often takes as little as 30 minutes, and the results will usually last 3 to 4 months.

Radiesse is a filler composed of a water-based gel combined with calcium-based microspheres. It produces immediate volume in the treatment area. Moreover Radiesse stimulates the body to produce its own collagen, extending the initial effect of the treatment. Radiesse can be expected to last for many months, and as long as a year.

LATISSE® eyelash treatment (bimatoprost topical solution 0.03%w/v – Allergan) is the only prescription product approved in Canada to grow natural eyelashes. Visible results occur as early as 8 weeks with full, dramatic effects in 12 to 16 weeks.
