BOTOX®

Botox-Treatment-dysport-injectable-anti-ageing

Non surgical alternatives to anti ageing from Dr. Cory Goldberg

Botox injectable treatments can help soften facial wrinkles caused by laughing, smiling, or frowning. Botox Cosmetic treatments quickly and safely deactivate the nerves that cause muscles to contract, thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

Every year in North America millions of women and men choose Botox as a safe and effective non-surgical alternative to minimize the early signs of ageing.

 

What is a Botox Cosmetic Treatment?

Botox Cosmetic, a prescription medicine, helps adults smooth the appearance of facial wrinkles. After Botox is precisely injected into the “dynamic” facial muscles, it blocks nerve impulses that cause those muscles to contract and form noticeable creases.

What are the benefits of Botox?

We all know that feeling satisfied with our appearance can boost our self-confidence. If your facial wrinkles prevent you from feeling your best, Botox might be right for you. You’ll see immediate results after just one treatment, and Botox will help not only reduce the appearance of wrinkles you’ve already developed, but also prevent them from worsening.

Adult women and men choose Botox to minimize crow’s feet, frown lines, smoker’s lines, eyebrow or nose furrows, horizontal forehead lines, or chin creases. Botox treatments also offer these benefits:

  • Short office procedure requires no anesthesia and no recovery time.
  • Visible improvements appear in just days and continue for up to a month.
  • Results last 3 to 6 months.

How do Botox injections work?

Dr. Goldberg administers Botox in his state-of-the-art medical facility conveniently located on the west end of Toronto. After reviewing your facial muscles, Dr. Goldberg will determine specific injection sites. Because the treatment requires no anesthesia, you will feel very little pain following each tiny injection. The procedure takes approximately 10 minutes, and the results typically last 3 to 6 months.

Botox recovery

Following the procedure, you may experience minimal localized pain, inflammation, or swelling, which you may treat with a cold compress or simply let subside within minutes. You can expect to be in and out of the office promptly, with no downtime, so you can resume your normal activities and skincare routine immediately.

Botox safety & risks

Botox has an impressive safety record, with millions of patients having experienced its benefits. On extremely rare occasions, muscles near the injection site are immobilized. This effect is only temporary and will gradually return to normal.

Procedures to complement Botox

If you are interested in finding additional non-surgical procedures to rejuvenate your appearance, Dr. Goldberg can create a specific plan for you, combining treatments such as dermal fillers, microdermabrasion, or laser procedures to help you achieve optimal results.

Dr. Goldberg also provides Botox for  non-cosmetic uses, including:

  • excessive underarm sweating
  • severe neck muscle spasms
  • eye misalignment
  • eyelid muscle spasms
  • chronic migraine headaches

If you would like to explore the option of using Botox to treat any of these concerns, notify Dr. Goldberg during your consultation.

 

Dysport®

Dysport-Treatments-toronto

Dysport is available as an injectable anti ageing option at our Toronto plastic surgery clinic

Are you looking for a fast and effective non-surgical procedure to minimize frown lines, crow’s feet, or forehead lines?

Dysport is a prescription medicine that helps improve the look of moderate to severe facial wrinkles by targeting their source: the underlying muscles.  It’s been the preferred neuromodulator in Europe for years and is now available in Canada. Just a few tiny injections begin to work within a day or two by immobilizing the muscles that create creases and add years to your appearance. The entire treatment takes only 10 to 20 minutes, with no recovery time, and lasts 3 to 6 months.

If you’re concerned that facial wrinkles make you look older than you feel, Dysport® treatments might be right for you.  To learn more, call Dr. Cory Goldberg’s office today to request a consultation. Ask about our zone pricing which offers great value.Dr. Goldberg provides Dysport for Toronto, Mississauga, and the surrounding areas.

Dysport versus Botox?

Dypsort and Botox are the same but different- like comparing Coke to Pepsi.  Both are the same product Botulinum Toxin A, a derived protein that works by relaxing targeted muscles. While Botox is a better known brand in North America, Dysport has been the preferred neuromodulator in Europe and South America for years. It was approved by the FDA in the 2009 and Health Canada in 2013. Dysport was launched in Canada by Medicis, the makers of Restylane and Perlane.

The Dysport protein is slightly smaller so it works faster.  Studies also show it lasting at least 4 months, has a wider spread than Botox and is less expensive.  In some reports, patients also believe it offers a smoother result.  Dysport is an equivalent if not better product.

The differences we’ve experienced support the results reported in literature. It’s great to have another option for our patients.  We now offer it almost exclusively as our clients love the quicker, longer lasting results at a better price.

Dermal Fillers and Restylane® Skinboosters

Skin boosting dermal fillers such as Restylane® give a quick and safe option for smoothing facial wrinkles, restoring youthful contours, and plumping thin lips. Although many different dermal fillers are available, Dr. Cory Goldberg knows how to select the right product, or combination of products, to help you achieve the results you want.

Our clinic offers many of the safest and most advanced skin boosters and dermal fillers available:

  • Restylane
  • Restylane Fine Lines
  • Perlane
  • Teosyal Redensity I and II and Teosyal Kiss
  • Sculptra

 

What are dermal fillers?

If you would like to freshen your appearance without surgery, dermal fillers can give you just the “lift” you need. As we age, we naturally begin to lose collagen and fat, some of which shifts downward. Injectable fillers can restore that lost volume, while creating a firmer skin surface, so wrinkles look less noticeable and our natural contours appear fuller and more youthful.

Benefits of dermal fillers

At what age do adult men and women typically begin using dermal fillers such as Restylane? Treatments begin at the first signs of aging, typically in the 30s to early 50s, though some younger patients can also benefit.

Dermal fillers might be right for you if you would like to experience any or all of the following benefits:

  • Smoothed facial wrinkles around the nose and mouth
  • Softened creases on the forehead or between the brows
  • Restored volume in hollow areas around the eyes
  • Renewed firmness on sagging areas of the face
  • Augmented facial features such as cheeks, chin, or lips

Results are instantly visible. Each treatment takes less than an hour and involves no downtime.

 

How do dermal fillers work?

dermal-fillers-toronto

Dermal fillers are another non surgical anti ageing option

To begin each treatment session, Dr. Goldberg administers anesthesia (either topical creams or small injections) to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Next, he smoothly glides the tiny needle under the skin, precisely injecting the filler until he has achieved the desired results. You may feel mild discomfort when the product is administered, but it will quickly subside.

Following treatment, you can reduce any residual pain with a cold compress. Shortly after, you can safely apply makeup and resume your typical skincare routine, but remember not to rub the treated areas for a day or two. You may experience minor swelling or bruising, which should fade in a few days.

For optimal results, you may need up to 3 treatments. The product Dr. Goldberg will help you select, based on your individual goals and facial characteristics, will determine how long the effects will last and how often you should return to maintain results. Dermal fillers such as Restylane generally last from 6 months to 2 years, depending on the product used.

Dermal fillers: Safety & Risks

Dermal fillers have been safely used in millions of patients worldwide, and side effects are extremely rare. Dr. Goldberg will discuss potential complications during your consultation and explain how to address them if they do arise.

Dermal fillers perform well alone or when combined with Botox treatments to help you look and feel your best. During your consultation for dermal fillers or Restylane  Dr. Goldberg will recommend a personalized approach to meet your aesthetic goals.

Selphyl™

Selphyl-BeforeAndAfterSelphyl™ gives our patients  a revolutionary new tool for maintaining a youthful appearance. Selphyl treatments correct early signs of aging like crow’s feet, under-eye hollows, and loss of facial volume by stimulating the body’s own collagen production and cellular growth.

Misleadingly called the “Vampire Facelift,” Selphyl treatments require no surgery at all. In fact, they work much like dermal fillers, but with one key difference: Selphyl treatments use your body’s own Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM) instead of synthetic materials. The result? Natural-looking enhancement that gradually improves with time.

What is Selphyl™?

Do you like the idea of using your own “autologous” biological materials to look younger and feel more confident? If so, Selphyl treatments could start you on a natural path to a more youthful appearance.

Dr. Goldberg collects a small quantity of your own blood and then separates the Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix from it. Platelets help our bodies heal by stimulating the growth of collagen and new cells, and both help our skin look fuller and more youthful.

Benefits of Selphyl™

  • Provides a minimally invasive, non-surgical alternative to rejuvenation
  • Offers long-lasting wrinkle reduction and volume enhancement
  • Minimizes side effects through use of the body’s own all-natural materials
  • Activates and promotes new cellular growth and collagen formation
  • Provides immediate, visible results that gradually continue to improve
  • Requires no lengthy recovery or downtime

How does Selphyl™ work?

Dr. Goldberg administers Selphyl™  in an office procedure (in our same clinic right in Toronto) that takes 20 to 30 minutes. He begins by reviewing your facial features to determine which areas would most benefit from increased volume. A small amount of your own blood is processed in a specially designed centrifuge, which separates the plasma, platelets, and fibrin from the other cells. In effect, you produce the material Dr. Goldberg uses to rejuvenate your appearance.

Dr. Goldberg then glides the tiny needle under the skin, injecting your own platelet-rich material into the targeted areas. You may feel mild but temporary discomfort when the material is administered.

Immediately following treatment, you may experience some tenderness at the injection site, which you can effectively minimize with a cold compress. Within a short time you can apply makeup and resume your normal skincare routine, taking precaution not to rub the treated areas for a day or two.

You should see marked improvement during the first 2 weeks following treatment, and final results in 3 to 6 months. Improvements will last approximately 20 months. During the initial consultation with Dr. Goldberg patients will also learn how to best maintain their results from the Selphyl treatments.

Selphyl™ Safety & Risks

Selphyl has been safely and effectively used on thousands of patients all over the world. Because treatments use patient’s own platelet-rich plasma, most experience few of the complications or allergic reactions often associated with synthetic fillers. No serious side effects have been reported, but some patients have experienced mild, temporary side effects like irritation, swelling, bruising, tenderness, or itching at the injection site. These conditions generally clear in one or two days.
