“Did you do something different with your hair?” That’s the response you want to elicit with any type of cosmetic surgery. We’re all familiar with the stereotypical ‘startled’ look often associated with treatments like Botox and fillers, which would turn anyone off exploring them. But when they are performed by careful professionals, these treatments can create a look so natural that your friends and family won’t quite be able to put a finger on why you’re looking so great.
Injectables like Botox, Xeomin and Dysport are among the most popular cosmetic treatments in North America, with good reason. These are proteins that gently relax the muscles of the face, softening your expressions. Patients look refreshed, and sometimes less tired and angry, especially when used around the eyes, forehead and frown lines. When done conservatively, Botox will not cause your features to look frozen or unnatural.
Botox does not affect sensation or cause numbness. You can expect to see an improvement 3-10 days post treatment, with the results lasting between three to four months.
Facial fillers are another option to create a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. These are a gel that is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. Fillers work as an easy beauty lift, used in the cheek area, around the jowls, and in the corners of the mouth and around the lips. Just like with Botox, when done correctly, the result should be subtle and natural.
It’s best to chose a clinic that only uses hyaluronic acid fillers, as this substance is organically present in your body and plays a critical role in the firmness of your skin and features. The result of these types of fillers is instantaneous and long lasting.
The team at Baker Rejuvenation Centre has been performing both of these treatments safely and effectively for over 15 years. They bring an artistic focus to their work, providing results that go beyond expectations. They recommend you bring in a picture of your younger self, remembering that the goal is to look relaxed and rejuvenated, but still just like yourself.
