Picture this: You have a big event coming up within a month and you want to look as fresh and rejuvenated and natural as possible. What should you do?

The first thing I take into consideration is where you’re at now.

Do you have a lot of sun damage?

If you have a lot of brown spots, redness and textural changes to your skin, you will get a lot of bang for your buck if you address that with laser treatments to clear the brown and red, and skin tightening to improve texture and lift and tighten the skin.

Do you have a thin face or lots of sagging and hollows in your face?

Lost volume in the face can be replaced with dermal fillers like Juvederm. The injection techniques I use are researched and refined to give beautiful, natural results that make your face look the way it did a few years ago.

The key to dermal fillers is to treat the underlying cause of the problem, rather than treating the problem directly.

For example, if your problem is deep lines bracketing your mouth, it is likely that they are caused by loss of volume on your outer cheeks and jawline. Thus the solution is inject filler to lift those areas rather than inject filler into the lines directly.

For a combination of problems

If you’re like me, when I first got into Medical Aesthetics, you likely have a combination of problems. I needed photofacials to clear sun damage and redness, skin tightening treatments, dermal fillers, and Botox.

For someone like me 17 years ago (wow! time flies!), I would recommend the 10 Years Younger in Burlington package.

48 yr old woman looking tired and grumpy

48 yr old woman after skin treatments, botox and fillersWe have put so much into this package with the intention of making a big difference in a short period of time. And we’re not just focused on your face; we’ve incorporated treatments for your neck, decollete and hands as well.

This package includes a laser photofacial, a skin tightening treatment to face, neck and decollete with microneedling, and we’ve included exosomes with the microneedling to assure rapid healing and best results. There’s a peel to improve the colour and texture of the hands, and a peel for another area, likely the decollete, depending on where it is most needed.

The above treatments can all be done on the same day, and will give beautiful results if done at least 2 and a half weeks before the event.

The next step of the package takes place a few days later: Botox and Juvederm dermal fillers. They are injected about 2 weeks before the event.

The package also includes a hydrating facial and an Accent facial. The hydrating facial is ideally done about a week after the skin treatments to assure complete exfoliation of any dead skin cells left over from the treatments, and to make sure the skin is hydrated.

The Accent facial is done as close to the event as possible, even the same day, in order to give further lifting and tightening of the skin, and contouring, for instance of the neck and lower cheeks.

The package also includes a Vivier skincare kit, to help you maintain your beautiful skin.

When loss of volume is the main problem

46 yr old woman with loss of volume in the face46 yr old woman after volume replacement in faceIf you have pretty good skin, and your concern is about loss of volume in the face, we have a package of 10 syringes of Juvederm.

The injections can all be done in 1 visit, with 1 follow up for a possible touch-up. The main injections can be done as close as 2 weeks before your event.

With Juvederm injections, you see the results immediately, by the end of the injection appointment. However the filler feels stiff initially and takes about 2 weeks to feel soft and natural. I personally would feel more comfortable at a big event if my fillers felt soft and natural.

These 2 packages are excellent for anyone getting ready for an important event with a fairly short timeline.

When you come for a consultation with me, I will find out what is bothering you and make recommendations, taking into account your budget and timeline.

It really feels good to show up at an event with people who may not have seen you for a while, and look radiant and refreshed but still like yourself.

They’ll be asking that old question: “Does she or doesn’t she?”
