WE'RE BACK!

 

We missed you! As of June 1 2020, we will be reopening the doors of the CCCPB surgical center and the MedicSPA.

 

NEW APPOINTMENT POLICIES

 

Dr. Berbari and her team prioritize patient and staff safety. Please familiarize yourself with these new procedures:

 

          Services will gradually resume from June 1 2020, respecting the social distancing guidelines issued by Public Health.

 

          Long-term follow-ups will resume as of June 22 2020 and will be carried out by telemedicine. Appointments will be given after July 6 2020 as needed.

 

PROCEDURES FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT

 

# 1 BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT:

           We have extended the time slots (fewer appointments per day) to give our employees time to disinfect the rooms between each patient.

           According to the above policies and dates, the contactless payment method will be favoured when making an appointment. Our staff will take your credit card number and the receipt will be emailed to you.

           You will then be invited to answer a COVID-19 questionnaire when booking the appointment (whether it is by email or by phone).

           N.B. follow-up appointments: we will contact you for follow-ups, as visits are now restricted to avoid contamination.

 

# 2 THE DAY OF THE APPOINTMENT:

           Please show up on time out of respect for other patients.

           Once you arrive in the clinic parking lot, please announce your arrival by phone (819-243-7667).

           A member of our team will welcome you in the doorway for an evaluation (questionnaire, temperature, mask, hydro alcoholic gel).

           N.B .: Only patients will have access to the clinic, anyone else must remain in the parking lot.

 

# 3 ONCE IN THE CLINIC:

          You will be taken directly to the treatment room.

          We opened door A for the aesthetic care (laser, radiofrequency, PRP etc.) of the MedicSPA and door B for surgery appointments and injections.

          After the appointment, you will be accompanied to the exit by a member of the team.

 

An explanatory video will be available on social media (@medicspa.gatineau on FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM) and the website (drpatriciaberbari.com) on May 29 2020, to summarize these new procedures.

 

When interacting with our staff, understand that they have received strict directives, we ask you to respect them for your safety.

BOTOX® Injection Results: What Patients Can Expect By Patricia Berbari on August 29, 2017

A woman undergoing BOTOX injection treatmentThere are many options available for enhancing your appearance and fighting signs of aging. While cosmetic surgery options are popular, cosmetic injectables have been growing steadily in popularity over the years. In fact, many patients come to our Gatineau practice specifically for BOTOX® injections and other non-surgical therapies to look their best.

We'd like to take a moment to consider the nature of BOTOX® injections and what results patients can expect from treatment.

How BOTOX® Injections Work

BOTOX® injections are a type of cosmetic injection that work by halting muscle contractions in the injection site. By stopping muscle contractions, muscles will not agitate skin that causes wrinkles to form in those areas. The result is smooth, soft, wrinkle-free, and younger-looking skin for months at a time.

Wrinkles That BOTOX® Injections Can Address

BOTOX® injections are ideal for treating dynamic wrinkles, which are wrinkles that are caused by muscle contractions. Examples of dynamic wrinkles that can be addressed through BOTOX® injections include the following:

  • Crow's feet
  • Worry lines on the forehead
  • Frown lines
  • Lines around the mouth

By contrast, static wrinkles (lines and wrinkles present without muscle contractions) are not treatable with BOTOX® injections.

BOTOX® Injection Results

After undergoing BOTOX® injection treatment, patients look years younger and much more refreshed and relaxed. There is no time off from work required, and no downtime after the brief injection treatment, so the results are achieved with minimal interruption to your daily routine and normal life.

How Long Do BOTOX® Injections Last?

While the results can vary from patient to patient, BOTOX® injections typically last around six months to seven months. During that time, the patient experiences the benefits of BOTOX® injection therapy and looked years younger.

Repeat BOTOX® Injection Treatments

As the effects of the BOTOX® injection treatment fade, patients can elect to undergo additional BOTOX® injections to prolong the anti-aging results. Your surgeon will be able to determine when to perform these secondary BOTOX® injection treatments during follow-ups or consultations.

BOTOX® Injections vs. Facial Plastic Surgery

BOTOX® injections can yield comparable results to certain kinds of facial surgery procedures. While the results of BOTOX® injections are only temporary, there is no scarring and patients run the risk of fewer complications thanks to this non-invasive treatment option.

BOTOX® Injections vs. Dermal Fillers

BOTOX® injections can be as effective as dermal fillers when treating certain kinds of wrinkles. For static wrinkles, however, dermal fillers are much more effective at achieving optimal anti-aging results. Certain fine lines and wrinkles are best treated with a combination of BOTOX® injections and dermal filler injections, so don't be surprised if this is a solution that is recommended to you as an alternative to plastic surgery.

Are BOTOX® Injections Right for Me?

The ideal way to find out if you are a good candidate for BOTOX® injections or other dermal filler treatments is to visit our practice for a consultation. We will carefully note your aesthetic goals and your current circumstances and then develop a treatment that works best for you.
