Fillers & Neuromodulators

Fillers

Dermal fillers are comprised of inert sugar proteins (Hyaluronic Acids a.k.a. HA’s). Depending on the area, they can be injected either deep and near the surface at various levels in the skin tissue. Their purpose is to treat symptoms of volume loss.

Neuromodulation

The key to looking good, natural, and like your best self is not by changing how you look. Rather than anybody noticing something has been done or changed, instead, they may notice you look “refreshed” and “relaxed”. This is the goal of neuromodulation.

The key to looking good, natural, and like your best self is not by changing how you look. Rather than anybody noticing something has been done or changed, instead, they may notice you look “refreshed” and “relaxed”. This is the goal of neuromodulation.

At Hemingway Medical Spa in Edmonton, we offer physician-administered botox injectables for neuromodulators and hyaluronic acid dermal fillers.

How Neuromodulators and Dermal Fillers Work

By inhibiting the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine from the presynaptic membrane at the cellular level, Neuromodulators work by limiting the muscle’s ability to receive the signal required to ‘fire’ and contract. Simply put, without acetylcholine in the synaptic space, the muscles do not contract as much.

In cosmetic medicine, neuromodulators are produced by the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum. The resulting inhibition of neurotransmitter release from this bacteria creates a temporary weakening (controlled paralysis) of the targeted muscle.

As hyaluronic acid is known to be a molecule that binds water to collagen and makes the skin dewier and more hydrated, dermal fillers work to encourage the production of HA’s and revitalize your skin by giving it volume. Dermal fillers are a tissue-friendly and long-lasting soft injectable gel that closely resembles the body’s naturally occurring hyaluronic acid.

The Best Botox in Edmonton Sherwood Park

When used appropriately botox can reduce the appearance of horizontal forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet, and marionette lines. These procedures are safe, cost-effective, and work to getting you closer to your most confident self.

Our team at Hemingway Medical Spa has been helping Edmonton regain and grow their self-confidence since 2016. We are passionate about what we do and we want our clients and patients to feel as strongly in their own skin too.

Botox FAQ

The exact cost of your Botox procedure will depend on a number of factors, including your individual concern, the number of areas that will receive treatment and injections, and the required dosage of Botox for each application. It can range in price from $250 to $500, on average, for correction treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. For more information, please contact one of our Edmonton professionals for a consultation on Botox injections and to receive a personalized quote.

Botox injectables have been a tried and true treatment for several decades now, but there are other treatments that can work together with injectables. When you come in for a consultation at Hemingway Medical Spa in Edmonton, our experts will do a full examination and discuss all relevant concerns and possible treatment options with you. Contact us today for more information.

It is advised to not receive Botox treatments if you are pregnant and/or are still breastfeeding. If you are unsure about receiving Botox injections or have any apprehensions, contact our Edmonton professionals for more information.

After receiving an application of Botox injections, most patients will usually notice results within 4-7 days. However, depending on the area you’ve received a botox treatment, and the amount per application, it can take up to 14 days for the full results to appear.

For most areas treated with Botox, the results typically last 3-4 months. The duration of dermal fillers results vary on the area treated. Dermal filler in the cheeks to help with lift typically lasts over 18 months.

As Botox treatments are administered through injection, you may feel a pinching sensation while it is performed. Local anesthetics are also available upon request. Afterward, your face may feel tighter than normal and may show signs of slight bruising and swelling, though this should disappear after 24 hours. Most people tolerate Botox with ease, and we will prioritize your comfort every step of the way. Our Edmonton specialists are here to ensure you feel at ease and relaxed throughout the procedure.

Botox treatment is primarily used for cosmetic rejuvenation, mainly for treating wrinkles that are caused by repeated muscle contractions such as smiling, laughing, and frowning, as these dynamic movements cause permanent lines to form on our skin as we age. Common botox application on the face includes forehead wrinkles, frown lines (also known as glabellar lines or 11 lines), crow’s feet, brow lift, and gummy smiles. Botox can also be used in other parts of the body, like the palms of hands and underarms, for treating non-heat related excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), and the neck area for minimizing the appearance of skin sagging (platysma bands). Our experts at Hemingway Medical Spa will conduct a full examination and discuss the proper treatment for you, based on your goals and concerns. Contact us today!

Following the injections, temporary redness and mosquito-bite sized swelling is typical for approximately 30 minutes. On rare occasions there may be a tiny bruise. It is important that you avoid touching the treated area for about an hour following your appointment to prevent the injected Botox from spreading/migrating to adjacent tissue.

Unlike undergoing cosmetic surgery, the recovery period for this type of treatment is relatively minimal. After receiving an injection of botulinum toxin, or Botox, you may notice some minimal swelling, bruising, redness, and soreness at the injection site. For most people, these symptoms tend to be mild and resolve within a few minutes or hours after the application. To avoid further bruising, and the toxin from spreading away from desired location, don’t massage or rub the area, and minimize touching your face. It’s recommended to avoid vigorous exercise and smoking for one to two days after the procedure.

Although extremely rare, if you are experiencing more significant symptoms, like severe pain, difficulty breathing or speaking, or unusual swelling, please seek medical help right away.
