General Information

Botulinum toxin injections, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, are administered at MedicSPA Gatineau by Dr. Berbari. She believes that all injectable treatments should be performed by physician specialists. Dr. Berbari is a board-certified plastic surgeon by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and a member of the Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons, the Canadian Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the Canadian Laser and Aesthetic Specialists Society, the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, and the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

As an Canadian expert injector with numerous years of experience and as the current 2018 President-elect of the Canadian Laser & Aesthetic Specialist Society (C.L.A.S.S.) https://class.ca/about-us/presidents-message/, Dr. Patricia Berbari, can help you to meet your cosmetic needs.

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.

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 a botulinum toxin injection (E.g. BOTOX® Cosmetic) and a dermal filler (hyaluronic acid).  Dermal fillers help make the skin more plump. Combined with the effects of a Botilunum toxin, 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, botulinum toxins such as Botox® may be an ideal solution for you. With as little as two 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 medical professional administer injections of Botulinum toxins anddermal fillers to ensure superior results that look and feel natural.

You should not receive botulinum toxin injections if you are allergic to botulinum toxin products are pregnant have an infection at the designated injection site suffer from serious medical conditions.

Although botulinum toxins such as BOTOX® Cosmetic are 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.

Recovery

Botulinum toxin injections are 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.
