Nobody needs to know your age
In the quest for smoother, younger-looking skin, BOTOX® Cosmetic and JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel are the gold standard for safe, effective results. Both BOTOX® and JUVÉDERM™ can provide dramatic results for anyone who is looking to restore their skin’s youthfulness without the risks or down time of cosmetic surgery. Whether part of an overall makeover or as simply a “little touch up,” these products can safely eliminate lines (by relaxing the muscles) or add volume to a face that has lost its youthful appearance.
Our medical personnel are fully trained in the application of both BOTOX® and JUVÉDERM™ (hyaluronic filler). These injectable products can reduce the appearance of facial lines and restore volume that may have been lost as a result of aging. These treatments may also be combined with laser treatments to maximize your results. "Everyone will notice, but no one will know."
What our Clients are Saying
I always thought of BOTOX® as something for celebrities or models, so I was shocked when my best friend told me that she had been getting BOTOX® treatments at Gentle Touch for a couple of years. I went for a consult and decided to book a treatment for my forehead lines and JUVÉDERM™ for the annoying ‘parentheses’ around my mouth. No more going out with my best friend and people assuming that I’m her older sister! I’m so happy with the results!
*Individual results may vary
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only product of its kind to specifically address the facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. It targets what are known as “dynamic wrinkles,” which are caused by repeated muscular contractions such as frowning and squinting. BOTOX® Cosmetic, an injectable treatment derived from purified protein, works by relaxing the muscles that cause these dynamic wrinkles, giving your face a more relaxed and refreshed appearance.
Absolutely. BOTOX® Cosmetic has been licensed in Canada since 1990 as a safe and effective treatment for a variety of medical conditions. In 2001, Health Canada approved BOTOX® Cosmetic for wrinkle therapy, and it has been proven to be very safe through extensive research and testing.
The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic usually last from four to six months. After repeat treatments, the effects may begin to last longer.
In most cases, clients notice results within two to three days after a treatment.
BOTOX® Cosmetic can be used to treat lines or creases on the forehead as well as “crow’s feet” around the eyes and “frown feet.”
A possible side effect is bruising, which is temporary, localized to the area of injection. Should you experience any temporary bruising, it can be easily covered with makeup.
JUVÉDERM™ is a soft injectable gel filler that can help refresh and restore a youthful appearance. It is primarily comprised of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring compound in the body, which combines with the water in your skin to instantly restore lost volume and reduce lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic injections have also been shown to stimulate collagen production.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural, complex sugar found in all living cells, and is an important component of the skin. Hyaluronic acid retains water like a sponge, absorbing more then 1,000 times its weight. This helps to attract and maintain water in the skin, providing hydration while increasing its volume and density. Where skin had previously been “sunken in,” you will see a restoration of smooth, full, vibrant texture.
JUVÉDERM™ can be used on the following areas:
- Smile lines
- Lip border
- Chin and jaw
- Lines around the mouth
Our medical personnel will inject the JUVÉDERM™ into the skin using a fine needle to reduce injection discomfort. The treatment area can also be numbed to further minimize discomfort. Because of its smooth consistency, the gel can be administered very easily.
JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel is generally well tolerated. Possible side effects are mild to moderate and are relatively short lived (fewer than seven days). These may include temporary skin reactions such as redness, tenderness and bruising, which can easily be covered with light makeup. The treatment requires minimal down time. Most people return to their normal routines immediately.
As we age, our face slowly exhibits the “three Ds” of aging: Deterioration (wrinkles and texture change), Descent (droopiness of the skin) and Deflation (a loss of volume). The use of JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel, in combination with BOTOX® Cosmetic, can provide a safe, gentle and effective approach to overall facial rejuvenation.
The combination of BOTOX® Cosmetic, to treat upper facial lines such as crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead lines, along with JUVÉDERM™ to treat volume loss and folds in the mid to lower face, can provide you with a long-lasting, more youthful look.
