At the Gatineau Cosmetic Surgery Clinique, we provide non-surgical procedures as a complement to the surgical alternatives. In some cases, surgery is not the best option. You may not be a good candidate for a procedure or you may feel simply not ready. These less invasive alternatives in the appropriate circumstances give excellent results. We use injections to treat specific areas of the face. We offer individual peel treatments to condition your skin as well as a maintenance skin care program.
There are two main types of injections: muscle relaxants (BOTOX®) and fillers (Juverderm®) We use both types at the Gatineau Cosmetic Surgery Clinique
The areas most frequently treated with muscle relaxants are the glabella, the eyebrows and the forehead.
Glabella: This is the area between your eyebrows. Wrinkles in this region give you a stern or severe look which is readily smoothed with muscle relaxants. . .
Eyebrows: If your eyebrow are low on your forehead, you may have a stern looking appearance. By relaxing the muscles around the brow, we can effect a soft “lift” of this area creating a more relaxed appearance. .
Forehead: The deep creases and wrinkles across your forehead may give you a worried look. These can be easily softened with muscle relaxants.
