BOTOX® Cosmetic Gatineau
Do you have fine lines and wrinkles that are making you feel self-conscious about your appearance? BOTOX® Cosmetic has been chosen by over 11 million women and men as the number one prescription medication injection to reduce the signs of aging. Dr. Patricia Berbari offers BOTOX® Cosmetic at her Gatineau practice to patients who wish to achieve younger-looking skin. Contact us today to find out if BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you.
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are administered at our Gatineau office by Dr. Berbari who has several years of experience dealing with a variety of cases from moderate to complex. The temporary wrinkle treatment can be performed on patients who are 18 years of age or older. Botulinum toxin helps relax the muscles of facial expression that cause wrinkles in the face.
Immediate, Dramatic Results
By carefully placing the injections, Dr. Berbari can dramatically smooth your fine lines and wrinkles for up to four months, which means upkeep and re-treatment at least twice a year is required in order to fulfill and maintain your cosmetic goals.
If you wish to achieve results similar to those possible through a face lift procedure, but don't wish to undergo an invasive treatment, we offer a "soft lift," which involves injections of a combination of BOTOX® Cosmetic and JUVÉDERM®. JUVÉDERM® is a dermal filler (hyaluronic acid) that helps make the skin more plump. Combined with the effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic, this option puts an immediate facial rejuvenation within your reach.
A smile is considered a “gummy smile” if a significant amount of gingival tissue is revealed when a person smiles. The condition can make your teeth look worn, unhealthy, and unattractive. If you wish to transform the appearance of your smile by concealing your visible gum line, Botox® Cosmetic may be an ideal solution for you. With as little as two Botox® injections Dr. Berbari can minimize the exposure of your gums in a pleasant and beautiful way.
Risks & Complications
It is important to have a certified, highly qualified professional administer BOTOX® Cosmetic injections to ensure superior results that look and feel natural. You should not receive BOTOX® if you:
- are allergic to botulinum toxin products
- are pregnant
- have an infection at the designated injection site
- suffer from serious medical conditions
Although BOTOX® Cosmetic is proven to be effective at replenishing a youthful look and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, there are some side effects that a patient should take into account before beginning treatment. Dr. Berbari will present them to you during your consultation.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is considered to be a "lunch-time" procedure, meaning treatment doesn't require recovery time; in fact, patients can return to normal activities immediately following treatment.
