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.

Experience Youthful-looking Facial Features with Injectable Fillers

A female patient reviewing the results of a filler treatment with Dr. BerbariIf you are seeking to enhance your facial features without surgery, injectable fillers at the Gatineau plastic surgery practice of Dr. Patricia Berbari may be right for you. These dermal fillers may contain hyaluronic acid, a substance that is found in the human body, so it can achieve extremely natural-looking results. To learn more about the benefits of injectable treatments, schedule a consultation with Dr. Berbari today.

Are Injectable Fillers Right for Me?

Injectable fillers are a type of dermal treatment that is used to improve the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth by temporarily adding volume to these areas. We can also use these products as a non-surgical form of lip augmentation. The advanced formula was specially designed to provide significantly longer-lasting results than other types of dermal fillers. 

To qualify for treatment, you should be in good overall health, and your skin must be healthy enough to withstand the injections. Injectable fillers are not appropriate for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding and not for patients with autoimmune conditions or multiple sclerosis (MS). When you visit our practice for a consultation, Dr. Berbari will review the unique features of each dermal filler we offer and discuss your goals to determine the treatment that is right for you.

The Procedure

During the days leading up to your procedure, you will need to stop taking any anti-inflammatory medications like aspirin, alcohol, garlic, and ginger to minimize your risk of complications. Many injectable fillers contain lidocaine, which is a mild anesthetic, so most patients can comfortably undergo treatment without the need for local anesthesia. When you arrive at our practice, Dr. Berbari or a member of our team will carefully inject the appropriate formula into treatment areas using a thin needle. In most cases, the entire procedure can be completed in less than 30 minutes. 

Recovery

After your injectable treatment, you should be able to return to work, school, or other activities right away. However, you will need to take certain steps in the days and weeks following your injections to achieve optimal results. You should avoid rubbing or touching the treatment area to the best of your ability for several days, although you can still gently wash your face and apply makeup. To keep your skin looking youthful and attractive, you should stay out of the sun and wind as much as possible and use sunscreen when outdoors. 

Risks

Although injectable fillers are considered extremely safe, there are some minor risks involved. Most notably, there is a risk of tissue damage as well as inflammation and bruising around the injection sites, though these side effects usually subside in less than a week. However, since the active ingredient in injectable treatments (hyaluronic acid) is naturally produced in the human body, there is an extremely low risk of allergic reaction.

Injectable treatments can enhance and revitalize your features for a more attractive and revitalized look. Reach out to our practice today to learn more about the injectable treatments we offer.
