Of the products we use for facial re-contours most are made with a colourless water based gel called Hyaluronic Acid (HA). HA is a naturally- occurring complex sugar found in most tissues of the human body. It plays a vital role in maintaining normal skin structure and function. Over time HA is gradually lost as the body ages and skin loses elasticity and volume, leaving the face with more prominent wrinkles and furrows, and loss of volume. After having HA, the skin looks fresher, younger, more hydrated, resulting in a smoother, more supple appearance. As well, it will preserve the moisture level in skin and boost tone. As HA is not a collagen (derived from animal protein) no skin testing is required.
Some examples of Hyaluronic Acids are Juvederm, and Restylane.
Restylane now has an online application that enables you to upload a photo of yourself to demonstrate individual before-and-after benefits of select procedures. To try it for yourself, simply go to their website on our Links page.

Our goal is to respect your facial expressions and character traits, and leave you with a fresher, more rejuvenated appearance. To help you achieve this, or to enhance your facial features, here are some of the treatments we provide through our Oral & Maxillofacial Surgical Clinics:
Cosmetic Botox is made of a protein derived from a form of botulinum toxin. Botox is a popular non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crow's feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. It blocks the nerve impulse from reaching the area, causing the muscle to relax, while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Only the muscles beneath the injection site will be relaxed, so all other elements of facial expression will remain active. There is no effect on sensory nerves so the treated areas will retain their normal feelings.
