Botox

&

Neuromodulators  

Although the name BOTOX has become synonymous with the most commonly performed cosmetic dermatology treatment, Botox is actually the trade name of the first and most widely used form of Botulinum toxin, onabotulinumtoxinA.

 Although there have been several competitors entering the market, it remains the gold standard for treatment. Botox is the only form used at Skin Dynamics unless requested as we believe in using on the best products available.

All our Botox is performed by Dr Kathryn Wentworth who has advanced training and injection techniques and has been injecting since 2006. She specialized in natural results and prevention.

Cosmetic Botox

Most routine areas include:

Frown lines

Forehead wrinkles

Crows feet

COSMETIC BOTOX

Over the years, many new Botox treatment areas and techniques have been developed for various cosmetic indications.

Some of these include: 

  • Eyebrow lift: Botox placed along lateral brow can help lift the brow and upper eyelid

  • Under eye crinkling: Botox can be used under the eyes to help smooth the fine wrinkles that develop in the area, as well as prevent future lines forming 

  • Bunny lines: vertical lines on the top sides of the nose 

  • Mentalis (chin): used to treat patients with a orange peel texture to their chin

  • Turn your frown upside down: Botox is used to relax the depressor angularis Oris muscle, a muscle that pulls the corners of the mouth down and can result in a resting sad face ​

  • Masseters: Teeth grinders and/ or gum chewers can develop hypertrophy of their Masseter muscle. This can lead to pain and a squaring-off of the jaw. Relaxation of this muscle can have a therapeutic effect ( prevent pain) and cosmetic ( by slimming/ Gemini zing the lower face) benefit.

  • Lip flip: a few carefully placed units of Botox along the upper and/or lower lip can give the lips a subtle pouty appearance and relax vertical lipstick/ smoker lines 

  • Platysmal bands: Over time the Platysmal Muscle of the neck can develop bands leading to widening and crinkling of the neck. These bands can be relaxed with Botox making the neck look slimmer and smoother. 

 

Botox is popular because it is effective with a high success rate. The treatment is relatively quick (15 minutes) with little downtime. Best of all the results are visible within 5-7 days and last approximately 3-4 months.

Injectable Fillers

We use top quality fillers to restore volume loss that last from 6 months to 3 years and naturally restore volume loss, lift and contour the cheeks and fill marionette and peri- oral lines. We also have specialized lip fillers to create volume for a pretty out. I prefer a very soft approach and wont overfill.

 

Benefits and what to expect:

The results will be so natural everyone will notice, but no one will know. The treatment in our beautiful clinic in Cranbrook can be performed in as little as 15 minutes with minimal down time.

Immediate and long lasting improvement:

  • Minimally invasive and easy to perform

  • Safe and effective

  • Minimal downtime

  • Reversible

  • Available with lidocaine for added patient comfort

Here are some popular areas:

Temples:

We can restore lost volume and diminish the con cavity of the temple area. Adding volume to the temple helps restore the look and shape of the upper face leaving the client looking more youthful. 

 

Cheekbones:

Fillers for the cheeks can help restore volume loss and lift the face. Cheek filler can also contour the cheekbone and enhance the shape and profile of the face.

 

Chin:

Chin augmentation can give a more balanced profile and reduce the look of a receding or double chin. The neck and jawline can also look more defined. 

 

Lips: 

We only use specialized lip fillers creating a plump, even and youthful look.

 

Nasolabial lines:

As we age the skin becomes laxer and forms more prominent folds. Fillers can lessen the appearance and give a more youthful look.

 

Marionette lines: 

The area below the corners of the lips can become sunken with age and we can soften the depression and support the corners of the mouth with correctly placed filler.

Microneedling

The best secret to looking youthful is taking care of your skin. We do this with medical grade skin care and a combination of other collagen induction therapies. We love medical grade microneedling because it is so natural and cost effective, and we can get to those hard to reach areas close to the eyes and around the mouth/ lips. It is also perfect for sagging skin around the jaw line. 

 

What does it do?

Creates micro-channels in the skin that triggers a wound like response to stimulate natural growth factors, collagen and elastin.

 

What does it treat?

Fine lines, acne scars and overall tightening and improvement of skin's appearance

 

Is it painful?

No 

 

How many treatments?

3-4 treatments 4-6 weeks apart

 

Downtime?

Expect redness immediately after, feels warm and tight 

 

What device is best?

We DO NOT recommend derma rollers as cause damage to the skin.

We only use MICROPEN ECLIPSE which is both FDA and Health Canada approved.

Platelet Rich Plasma/ PRP therapy

What if we told you that one of the best skin rejuvenation ingredients was within your own body?

 

PRP Therapy, by AJ Brekke, at Skin Dynamics for skin rejuvenation, hair restoration and collagen induction Initially marketed as the "Vampire Facelift or facial" this uses your own PRP for a natural approach to regenerate collagen and elastin. 

PRP benefits are scientifically backed and proven to work, you may have also noticed a few celebs having treatments too. 

 

The first step is to draw your blood which we then centrifuge to separate the platelets. The platelets contain growth factors which are substances that stimulate cell growth, proliferation and healing. When applied to certain areas of the face, neck, chest and even the scalp, they stimulate growth and improvement in those areas, leading to health, firm, smooth skin on the face and hair follicle stimulation on the scalp. 

 

PRP stimulates collagen and elastin production which thickens and tightens thinning skin, effectively smoothing wrinkles and fine lines. Because it boosts collagen, it's also a great treatment for improving overall skin texture, scars, pores and tone.

Fractional Laser Resurfacing

Resurfacing laser can be used on full face, neck, décolletage, stretch marks and scars to create new healthy tissue and skin resulting in new collagen growth and healthier younger looking skin.

What does it do?

Fractional Skin Resurfacing removes and/or resurfaces skin with intent to rejuvenate skin, for example, to remove or diminish wrinkles.  Common treatment areas include wrinkle lines on the face and jowls as well as stretch marks and cellulite areas of the body. We use a eTwo by Candela Medical. This is the next generation of regeneration technology.

 

Who does sublative work? 

RF energy is precisely directed into the skin in the form of a matrix. Healthy skin around the dots accelerates the healing process of the skin. Post treatment, new collagen and healthy skin cells are produced. Mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial imperfections of your skin’s tone and texture are reduced. 

 

Is sublative for me? 

Treatment is a safe abs effective solution for most skin types.

 

What can I expect?

  • shortly after treatment, the treated area will be moderately red and puffy, and this usually subsides in 12 - 24 hours.

  • small pinpoint crusts appear in place of each spot where electrode pins contacted the skin.  After a few days these areas will heal and the crusts will disappear.

  • how much improvement you see and how many sessions are required to achieve desired results vary from person to person.

 

When can I expect to see results?

Typical treatment protocol is 3 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart. The total number required depends on your skin condition. Results appear gradually, usually noticeable 2 - 4 months after your last treatment.

 

Does it hurt?

During treatment you may experience a warm prickly sensation as energy enters the skin.  After treatment a red “sunburn” appearance is common. 

 

Who Should Not Receive This Treatment?

  • those with a pacemaker, or internal defibrillator or any other active electronic implant anywhere in the body or those with a permanent implant in the treated area, such as metal plates and screws, or an injected chemical substance.
