To counteract the effects of aging the face quickly and effectively, Dr Joseph Bou-Merhi welcomes you in the pleasant and friendly atmosphere of the Centre de Chirurgie Plastique de l’Île-des-Sœurs, Montreal. These anti-age injections have the advantage of not involving any surgery and not leaving a scar. We selected three categories of care:
BOTOX®, also known as botulinum toxin, helps relieve the overactive muscles of the face. The treatment lasts a few seconds and consists of injecting BOTOX® into the precise muscle that causes the wrinkle. Its duration of action is approximately 4 months. It is therefore necessary to plan 3 sessions per year. This treatment makes it possible to treat:
Vertical bands on the neck
Wrinkles between the eyebrows
A Proven Method!
These very popular injections must be repeated to have a permanent effect; this method also gives often spectacular results. After several injections of BOTOX®, the duration of action seems to increase.
Filling injections can make the lips more luscious or slightly more prominent, increase the cheekbones, give a more pleasing shape to the chin, fill in wrinkles, and so on. You can also get a micro-lift by combining it with BOTOX®. Dr Joseph Bou-Merhi will guide you through the various skin care options based on hyaluronic acid, a natural constituent of the skin:
RESTYLANE®, for moderate to deep wrinkles, for example smile lines
JUVÉDERM ®, for smoothing the skin
HYLAFORM® GEL, to restore volume to the skin
Perlane, to restore volume to the lips and erase fine wrinkles
Filling injections fill a superficial or deeper wrinkle to redefine facial features. It is possible to use:
Fatty tissues taken from the patient
Injections should be repeated every 8 to 12 months for ongoing effects. If the results obtained with hyaluronic acid please, a more permanent injection (5 to 10 years) can be attempted with ArteSense (polymethylmethacrylate) which provides a long-lasting correction, but with certain restrictions. Injections of fatty tissue from the patient's abdomen or hips may also be performed to increase or fill parts of the face. In this case, only a portion of the injected fat will be vascularized and become permanent. Therefore, several sessions are expected to achieve the desired effect. Fat injections are a simple and effective method that often gives excellent results.
Whatever your age, you can benefit from these non-invasive treatments that are like real fountains of youth! Current techniques can have significant and lasting results by targeting different areas of the face without having to undergo surgery. Contact Dr Joseph Bou-Merhi's office to find out more!
