Non-Surgical Ways to Pamper Your Skin This Spring

Have the signs of spring inspired you to pursue dewy, glowing skin? Vancouver cosmetic surgeon Eric Pugash, MD, offers a number of non-surgical treatments designed to enhance the youthfulness and vitality of your facial skin and features.

Here are your best options:

BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic stops wrinkles in their tracks so you look younger and more rested almost immediately. Injected into strategic points around the face, BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein that weakens the muscles that produce lines and wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic is often used around the eyes and forehead. Treatment is quick and does not require any anesthesia or significant downtime.

Xeomin is an alternative to BOTOX® Cosmetic. Dr. Pugash can explain the differences between the products with you, and explore the best option for your personal needs.

Dermal Fillers

One of the most popular ways to refresh and revitalize the facial skin is through dermal filler treatment. Dr. Pugash offers Restylane, Perlane and Radiesse. These fillers can be used to refine the contours of your face without requiring anesthesia or incisions.

Restylane and Perlane are both hyaluronic acid-based products that plump the lips and smooth facial wrinkles and folds. Radiesse provides immediate volume to the treatment area, and stimulates the body to regenerate more collagen for extended benefits.

Injectable therapy can also be combined with a surgical procedure, such as a facelift or brow lift, for more comprehensive improvement.

Benefits of Non-Surgical Treatment

Many of our Vancouver patients prefer to treat signs of aging with non-surgical treatments because they do not require anesthesia, incisions or a lengthy recovery period. Treatment is very quick; our patients can schedule a lunchtime appointment for BOTOX® Cosmetic injections and return to the office almost immediately.

There are few risks involved with injectable treatment, and adverse side effects are very rare. The results are temporary, which is a good thing if you are unhappy with the outcome. The majority of our patients love the outcome of their treatments, and therefore schedule repeat treatments to maintain the results.


If you’re concerned about an uneven complexion, fine lines and/or brown spots, Dr. Pugash can recommend a treatment program of OBAGI Nu-Derm products to pamper your skin. The Nu-Derm system penetrates the skin’s surface to correct skin damage and improve cellular function. A regular routine with Nu-Derm products can reveal healthier and more youthful-looking skin.

Dr. Pugash also offers light chemical peels (a non-surgical procedure) to treat skin problems a deeper level.
