fillers & botox Toronto

Dr. Alexander believes in the philosophy that “less is more” in cosmetic surgery and in the use of BOTOX® Cosmetic and injectable fillers. Along with his superior knowledge and understanding of facial anatomy and the interplay of various muscles of the face, the greatest advantage in seeing Dr. Alexander for your injectable needs is that he has a global approach to facial analysis. He doesn’t just chase after lines or wrinkles; he performs a comprehensive, holistic analysis of your entire face, and educates you on the best options to improve your overall appearance.

botox® cosmetic

Botox has been used for medical treatment of various conditions since 1989. BOTOX® Cosmetic was approved by the FDA for enhancement of the face in 2002. Today, it is one of the most popular and widely used aesthetic treatments available.

When injected into the muscles of the face, BOTOX® Cosmetic produces a reversible weakening of these muscles. The end result is smooth, wrinkle free skin. It typically takes 24-48 hours to take effect, and lasts approximately 4 months.

The difference between a good and a great injector is like the difference between a cook and a chef. What makes Dr. Alexander a masterful injector is his ability to tailor his treatments to the patient’s wishes and his/her anatomy. Dr. Alexander simply doesn’t like the “frozen-face” look. Instead, he much prefers to use BOTOX® Cosmetic to create softening and smoothing—he believes this provides a more natural look.

Dr. Alexander uses Botox for the following cosmetic purposes:

  • Frown lines
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Bunny lines
  • Brow lifts and Brow re-shaping
  • Crows feet
  • Smile lines (nasolabial folds)
  • Marionette lines (labiomental folds)
  • Liquid Rhinoplasty
  • Chin puckering (peau d’orange)
  • Lipstick lines (fine wrinkles around the lips)
  • Reversing a down-turned smile
  • Platysmal bands (muscular cords along the length of the neck)
  • Defining the neck and jawline
  • Counteracting a square shaped jawline (masseter injection)

Dr. Alexander also utilizes the effects of Botox to help treat the following medical conditions:

  • Facial Paralysis
  • Blepharospasm and facial tics
  • Migraines
  • Hypersalivation (excessive saliva production)
  • Hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating)
  • Teeth grinding (masseter injection)

Juvederm and voluma

Juvederm and Voluma are soft tissue fillers with track records of excellence and safety. They function to enhance facial volume in areas of depression or hollow. The effect is to provide accents and efface shadows to re-create the youthful face that you once had. The intention is never to make you look drastically different, but, instead, to restore your appearance to a younger, fresher version of you.

Volbella

A relatively new and exciting product from Allergan, and based on long-established and safe technology, Volbella is an excellent choice for providing smooth contours. To that end, it is the hottest item on the market for lip augmentation, as even small doses can provide subtle but beautiful fullness and shape to this important area.

The main advantages of facial fillers are:

  • Immediate results
  • No incisions
  • No downtime

Fillers last for varying durations, depending on the location in which they have been injected—the more movement in a given area, the less time the filler lasts. In the cheeks and under the eyes, most fillers will last 9-12 months. In the nasolabial folds, they can be expected to last 6-9 months. In the lips, one might need another treatment again in 4-6 months.

Dr. Alexander goes the extra mile to make sure your experience is as pain-free as possible, and minimizes swelling and bruising through his careful and thoughtful techniques.

PRACTICE POLICY UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

Updated March 26th, 2020

After serious consideration and in line with the recommendations of our State and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we decided to close the practice until at least April 7th. We will need to reassess closer to this date to determine whether or not we can open at that time or if we must remain closed a while longer.

Your health and well-being is our primary concern and we want to do our part to make sure that you are protected.

Effective immediately the following will occur:

  • All procedures and in-person consultations will be suspended until at least April 7th.
  • The office will be staffed, and we will see our urgent post-surgical follow-ups.
  • We are instituting Virtual Consultations for all potential patients.
  • Surgeries will be rescheduled.

We are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and will always place your health and well-being as our top priority.

We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the Ministry of Health and Public Health. These include:

  • Staff have been fully informed and trained to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • All staff, vendors and ancillary personnel are being asked to refrain from coming to FACE if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Every patient is also being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms.
  • We are asking our patients about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing continues to be the most important mode of prevention. Although it is a part of what we constantly do, now we are doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • Social distancing and social isolation are also critically important. Please stay home if you can!

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this Country even better than it currently is. We are monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will not rest until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.

Please do not hesitate to contact us. We are always here to answer your questions.

Looking forward to moving past this and being able to continue to help our patients look and feel their best!

We are still continuing to conduct virtual consults. Contact us today and schedule a virtual consultation!
