Botox®/Xeomin/Nuceiva Cosmetic Injections

Cosmetic toxin injections are a world-renowned treatment for lines and wrinkles.  It involves the injection of a neuromodulator, botulinum toxicum type A, which helps to relax muscles that cause wrinkles. 

Treatment Details

  • The duration of the appointment is approximately 15 minutes             

  • Results within 3-14 days

  • Results last 3-4 months

  • Post Treatment you may experience a mild headache, tingling and mild bruising

  • Treatment is minimally invasive and essentially painless

Dr. Hitkari's approach is less is more, to strive for a natural look and not a frozen one.  She is happy to work with you and your budget.  After discussing your goals and assessing your face, a plan will be discussed and decided upon together.  Dr. Hitkari will then mark out the areas of treatment and gently inject the neuromodulators.

Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers Injections

A youthful appearance is often defined as one where the face has beautiful contoured volume and the skin texture is soft and smooth, and void of wrinkles.  A goal for many of us is to continue to have a natural yet youthful appearance for as long as possible.  However, a natural part of ageing is the predictable change in texture, volume and thickness of the skin.  As we age our skin loses collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.  The fat pads under our skin that give our face structure decrease in their volume and start to migrate down and towards the center of the face resulting in deep lines such as the nasolabial folds.  There is loss of facial bone and facial tone also contributing to the appearance of sagging skin.  To help to oppose this loss of volume and structure to the face, hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers are injected under the skin.  Hyaluronic acid is naturally abundantly present in our skin and is an essential element to the texture and turgor of the skin.  It has an outstanding ability to bind and retain water which makes it an invaluable tool to help restore volume and improve skin hydration and texture. 

Treatment Details

  • The duration of the appointment is approximately 1 hour            

  • Results immediate, settling over 14 days

  • Results last 9-12 months on average

  • Post Treatment you may experience tenderness, swelling and bruising

  • Treatment invoices the use of medical-grade topical number cream applied to help make the treatment as comfortable as possible.  The majority of filler treatments are performed using an advanced microcannula technique, which helps to minimize bruising, swelling and lumps. 

Dr. Hitkari uses a unique brand of hyaluronic-based dermal filler called Teoxane.  Teoxane has a wide range of fillers with differing gel densities allowing for more versatility in treating patient's unique concerns and aspirations.  Dr. Hitkari has specifically chosen to work with Teoxane fillers because they offer a new generation of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers designed specifically to accommodate the dynamic and natural movement of the face, allowing for a much more natural attractive appearance.
