Our techniques honour your aesthetic vision and goals with a synthesis of natural and modern skin care, to instil a feeling of true, authentic beauty.

PROCEDURES

Will there be SWELLING or BRUISING?

We try our very best to avoid this, but swelling and bruising may happen with some of our services. The degree depends on your skin type, area treated and type of treatment. Typically swelling and bruising will resolve within 7-10 days.

WHAT CAN I DO TO REDUCE BRUISING?

There are a few things! Unless medically necessary, you can avoid blood thinning medications such as aspirin & ibuprofen and fish oil supplements the week before your appointment. Alcohol and caffeine are also blood thinners, you can refrain from consuming these for three days prior to your treatment. You can use natural bruising and swelling aids like arnica, on the day of your procedure and for several days afterwards.

HOW MANY UNITS/VIALS/SYRINGES/SESSIONS WILL I NEED?

The amount of product or sessions needed varies from patient to patient depending on the area to be treated, your facial anatomy, muscle strength etc. You will be able to discuss this with the doctor during your consultation.

HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Some results, like dermal fillers are immediate, while others, like neuromodulators take up to 2 weeks for the full effect. We recommend waiting the full 2 weeks before booking a touch up, if needed.

HOW LONG WILL MY RESULTS LAST?

This varies from patient to patient depending on the area to be treated, your facial anatomy, muscle strength, and the type of treatment you receive. Often results are cumulative with continued treatment. You will be able to discuss this with your doctor during your consultation. Generally, neuromodulators like botox or dysport last between 3-6 months while dermal fillers last from 6-12 months. 

CAN I RECEIVE TREATMENT IF I AM PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING?

There are some treatments that can be performed, such as the Gua Sha Glow Facial and Microneedling without numbing cream, however we strongly recommend consulting with your OBGYN first.

 

Appointments

I’m not sure what TREATMENT to book?

If you’ve got a skin concern or would like an in-depth evaluation of your skin health, we recommend booking a Skin Health Consultation with our doctor. To learn more about our cosmetic dermatology services and consult with the doctor to determine what procedures are best suited to your aesthetic goals, we recommend booking a 30-minute cosmetic dermatology consultation. The doctor will conduct an evaluation and give you recommendations for treatment. If the doctor is able to provide a cosmetic dermatology treatment during this visit, your appointment fee will be waived as a courtesy. Please note that same-day treatments are not guaranteed, only if time permits and it is safe to do so that day for you.

DO YOU OFFER SAME-DAY TREATMENT FOR NEW PATIENTS OR FIRST-TIME SERVICES?

Yes! Although we can never guarantee treatment, same-day treatment is usually possible for our Gua Sha Glow facial and Botox. New and first-time patients interested in microneedling should book an initial microneedling treatment. New and first-time patients interested in PRP skin rejuvenation, PRP hair restoration or dermal fillers are required to have a visit with the doctor prior to their treatment.

DO YOU HAVE A CANCELLATION POLICY?

Out of respect for our doctor’s time please note that cancellations require 24 hours notice. Cancellations with less than 24 hours notice will be subject to a rescheduling fee of $100. Please call our office as soon as possible if you need to change or cancel your appointment.

DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?

Some of our services may be covered by your extended benefit plan. We suggest contacting your insurance provider to determine what types of services/treatments are covered under your plan, and our front desk would be happy to answer any specific questions you have. Please note we do not offer direct billing for our cosmetic dermatology services with the exception of our Skin Health Consultation and Gua Sha Glow Facial.

CAN I BRING A FRIEND?

Of course! All of our rooms have an extra seat. We can’t however, assess or treat anyone else during your visit (you know they’ll want to jump on board once they see how good you look!) Curious friends should book their own appointments or a 30-minute cosmetic dermatology consultation.

WILL YOU TAKE BEFORE & AFTER PHOTOS?

Yes. We will only use these photos for your confidential patient file unless you give us permission to use your before & after pictures for our social media pages.
