BOTOX®

Worry lines, frown lines, laugh lines, crow's feet. These are called dynamic wrinkles and while we would all like to be thought of as dynamic, most of us would rather have our personalities as testament instead of the lines on our faces.
Welcome Botox®, the treatment you've been hearing so much about. In fact, Botox® injections were the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure by plastic surgeons in 2003. Millions of people have achieved astonishing results with Botox® without any adverse side effects, saying bye-bye to dynamic wrinkles and hello to smooth and youthful appearances. Botox® treatments are effective, affordable, convenient and long lasting with no down time. Botox® can be used in conjunction with a brow lift, face lift, eyelid surgery, laser skin resurfacing, and microdermabrasion to enhance and maintain results for longer periods of time.

How Does Botox® Work?

Botox® is a non-surgical treatment that smoothes wrinkles on the face, especially around the eye area and the forehead. A series of minute, gentle injections into isolated, specific muscles, Botox® blocks impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. Botox®, a substance made of botulinum toxin Type A, is a purified protein derived from the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum. Botox® relaxes the muscles so they do not contract. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression to be unaffected. A Botox® procedure only takes 10 to 15 minutes to perform, it's quick simple and there is no down time.


WRINKLE FILLERS (Juvederm)

There are all sorts of names for wrinkles and all sorts of reasons why we get them. But the bottom line is, even if we spent all those years laughing our heads off, we still don't want the visible proof of it on our faces. Wrinkle Fillers were created to smooth out those deeper wrinkles, especially ones created by sun damage and the aging process. Wrinkle Fillers add support and padding to the face for a younger more youthful appearance.
Wrinkle Fillers are injected underneath the skin — right underneath the wrinkle itself — and act as a physical support system for the skin. Wrinkle Fillers add foundation to the skin and collagen and hold up areas that have become indented.

For Best Result Follow physician's instructions

How Do Wrinkle Fillers Work?

Wrinkle fillers are injected into your skin to push the wrinkle outward, making the skin fuller and the wrinkle less noticeable. The skin is supported and padded. Skin is smoother, creating a more youthful appearance.

Juvederm is made of Hyaluronic acid, found naturally in your skin and other tissues. Juvederm treatments last 6 - 12 months.

What Do Wrinkle Fillers Treat?

Wrinkle fillers are especially effective on deep lines or wrinkles - the ones you can see even when your face is fully relaxed. They can also be used on any indentation in your skin, such as scars.

What Are Wrinkle Filler Treatments Like?

Wrinkle filler treatments are performed in the office. Anesthesia and topical creams are used to numb the treatment area. Wrinkle filler is then injected, using a very thin needle, and results can be seen immediately. You can get back to your normal activities the following day.

Does It Hurt and What Can Go Wrong?

Serious complications from wrinkle fillers are rare. Swelling, redness and tenderness might occur, but minimize over a few days.

What should I expect from Wrinkle Filler Treatment?

There is no pain after the injection. Immediately after the treatment, you can expect slight redness, swelling, tenderness or an itching sensation in the treated area. This is a normal result of the injection. The discomfort is temporary and generally disappears within a few days.
The length of time of wrinkle correction varies depending upon the filler used and the severity of the wrinkle. For severe wrinkles, surgery is necessary to get the best and longest-lasting improvement.

Sclerotherapy

Call today! Limited appointments are available. 506.474.1772

All spider vein and varicose vein treatments are overseen by Dr. Pierre Mayrand MD, LMCC, CIME.

Varicose veins are a common cosmetic culprit for both women and men. Fifteen to 20 percent of people have some degree of varicose veins, which are usually green or blue and bulging. They can also cause pain or aching in the legs and feet. Spider veins are a milder form of varicose veins that tend to be blue, purple, or red and have smaller size vessels. The reasons varicose veins occur include pregnancy, family history, obesity, standing or sitting for long periods of time, and age. Several ways clients can help avoid varicose veins from occurring or getting worse in appearance include engaging in exercise, keeping weight to normal limits, not wearing high heels, and not sitting or standing for long periods of time. They should also avoid crossing legs constantly, which causes unwanted pressure. If there are significant varicosities, compression stockings are recommended and can be prescribed by a licensed professional and worn daily.

The gold standard therapy for spider and small varicose veins is still sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy irritates the inside of the vessel with a solution called a sclerosant, which is typically made of hypertonic saline, sodium tetradecyl sulphate (STS), or polidocanol. The latest technology is when STS or polidocanol are mixed with air or carbon dioxide for Foam Sclerotherapy. Foam Sclerotherapy can be done with ultrasound guidance to make sure the sclerosant solution is within the desired vessel. These treatments can be mildly to moderately uncomfortable, and it takes a few treatments, performed one month apart, for best results. The sclerosant solution irritates the vessel, and then the body resorbs the damaged vessel and removes it. When the body breaks down the blood vessel, hemosiderin, an insoluble form of tissue storage iron, is often released, causing a reddish brown discoloration that can last for months. It is best to treat these vessels in the winter in case of any hyperpigmentation to allow time for it to fade before shorts and bathing suit season. Other minor complications can include bruising, discomfort, infection, or inflammation, which is very rare.

Endovenous ablation can be done to larger vessels with a minor surgical procedure. This involves a procedure where a laser is used to heat the blood vessel, thereby damaging the vessel from the inside. Radiofrequency ablation is similar to endovenous ablation, except it requires a radiofrequency device. These procedures do not require sedation, and patients should be able to walk out of the office on their own afterward in most cases. Complications include inflammation of a vein, infection, swelling, and bruising. Usually, a compression-wrapped garment is suggested to be worn for a few weeks afterward on the leg to reduce the risk of complications.

Lasers and light therapy can also be used for small veins as an external treatment. Pulsed dye lasers, Yag lasers, and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) have been tried with varying degrees of success over the years. This is a less invasive treatment but often requires multiple treatments to see results. These treatments are popular, because they are not invasive. But the success rates are not as good as traditional sclerotherapy or endovenous ablation, and bruising is common.

If the vessels are very large, vein ligation and stripping is required, which refers to tying of the vessels in a surgical procedure and removing them, which leaves small scars. This should be done by a trained vascular surgeon in an outpatient surgical setting as a last resort.

While there are many options available today in the treatment of unsightly veins, it is important to accurately diagnose the problem and communicate with the patient all available options and outcomes to ensure not only the best results but also the most satisfied client.
