How Do Wrinkles Form?
Development of facial wrinkles, fine lines, creases, facial folds are some of the signs of the aging process. Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It is not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, or damage caused by free radicals. When you frown the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. Similarly, when you smile, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet.

How Do Injectables Work?
Injectables are prescription medicine. It is injected into muscles and works beneath the skins surface. They target the underlying muscle activity, which causes frown lines and crow’s feet to form over time. Injectables temporarily improves the look of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows. They also improve moderate to severe crow’s feet lines in adults.
BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is the FDA-approved prescription product. We may recommend it to treat, frown lines, crow’s feet lines and moderate to severe wrinkles. Due to Canadian Health Regulations, we cannot provide more information on BOTOX® Cosmetic. For more information on BOTOX® Cosmetics book your free consultation.
Benefits: Can be used for cosmetic purposes or for treatment of migraines
Medical consultation is required to assess if this is the right treatment for you.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness for your face. We recommend to combine procedures to get more effective results which can compliment facial rejuvenation.
As we age, our skin begins to lose hyaluronic acid, which is responsible for maintaining moisture in the skin. It is this moisture that helps hydrate the skin and creates facial volume. Hydration, volume, and elasticity (from collagen) result in a youthful, healthy-looking appearance.
The decreased production of hyaluronic acid and collagen over time causes a loss of:
- Sagging in your cheeks, lower face, jaw-line, and chin
- Wrinkled facial appearance.
- Lack of smoothness to skin due to prominent lines and wrinkles. Restylane can help replace lost volume, define facial contours, and achieve a more youthful look
Feel the Difference in your Skin
After a few treatments, as advised by your practitioner you’ll find improvement in your skins smoothness, elasticity and overall appearance.
- Injections are typically administered over the course of 2-3 treatment sessions, 2–6 weeks apart, to restore your skin’s elasticity and smoothness in a gradual way
- Regular maintenance sessions (approximately every 6 months) occur as planned with your practitioner ensuring lasting results
Clinical studies prove the lasting impact of a Restylane Skinboosters treatment with improvement in skin elasticity of the face and hands for up to 12 months after the initial treatment.
Use Skinboosters on your face for:
- Wrinkles and fine lines on the lower face (cheeks and below) and for crows feet (outer corners of the eyes)
- Crepiness, particularly on the cheeks and around the mouth
- Acne scarring
- Skin laxity
- General skin quality
Or on your Body for:
- Skin laxity and fine lines on the neck
- Skin laxity on the backs of hands
- Veins and hollows on the backs of hands (treatment acts like a volumizer, making hollows and veins less visible)
- Complexion issues affecting your décolleté

How does Sculptra work in the face.
Slow and steady strength
Sculptra® Aesthetic works a little differently from other dermal fillers. This treatment is considered more of a volumizer than wrinkle filler. Sculptra Aesthetic is made with biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild collagen through a series of treatments administered by a trained specialist.
Dr Moussa injects treatment within the deep dermis, where strands of collagen support your skin’s structure. Over time, Sculptra helps the body reproduce collagen. On average, three injection appointments are needed over a period of a few months. The number of injection appointments and the number of injections per appointment vary from person to person. Results may last up to two years and can be maintained with touch up treatments.
Used to smooth moderate-to-severe facial folds and wrinkles. Results last up to 9 months.
Benefits: Nasolabial folds (lines from nose to corners of mouth). UpLift could fix jowls
Platelet Rich Plasma, also called “Vampire Facelift” by some, is a new revolutionary anti-aging treatment that utilizes our own body’s natural reparative, restorative, and rejuvenating capabilities. As part of the process, a Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix is prepared to use as a dermal soft tissue filler and volumizer using blood (hence reference to 'vampires') collected from individual patients during an office visit.
Subsequent processing using a centrifuge and a unique catalyst allows select components of the blood to be used for rejuvenating purposes.

- Eye smile lines
