Eyes

Our eyes communicate great emotion, some of which can be lost behind wrinkles, falling eyelids and heavy brows. To masterfully improve the delicate eye area, our experienced doctor, nurses and medical aesthetics team employ a celebrated lineup of technologies. We brighten your eyes by softening lines, smoothing skin tone and texture, restoring volume to under eye hollows and lifting the lids and brows.

Eyes Treatment Options

BOTOX® Cosmetic

botox-logoRelax fine lines with BOTOX® Cosmetic

Once eased into targeted muscles, the neuromodulator BOTOX® slowly calms unwanted movements. The artistic sensibilities and experience of Dr. Peirson at ArtMed will ensure a natural result and care for normal facial animations. Over 3-10 days after treatment, results slowly take effect. The average BOTOX® treatment result will last for 3-5 months and gradually fade, at which point, for cumulative benefit, a subsequent treatment is recommended.

What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first and only FDA/Health Canada approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and moderate to severe crow’s feet in adults.

How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?

Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, or damage caused by free radicals. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet.

BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet to form over time.

Dr. Peirson will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscles that cause frown lines and crow’s feet lines, temporarily reducing the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.

How long does the treatment take?
Your doctor will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you. The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes.
Will BOTOX® Cosmetic make me look fake?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained and a medical expert in facial anatomy. It is important to talk to your provider about the results you want from treatment as well as any precautions and risks from the procedure.

When will I see results?

You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours with the maximum effect visible at 30 days.

Does it hurt?

Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your provider may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, your provider may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

JUVÉDERM® Dermal Fillers

logo_juvederm_gelAs we age, our skin begins to lose collagen, which causes deflation. The face begins to lose elasticity causing deep wrinkles and the loss of volume and shape.

JUVÉDERM dermal fillers are a non-invasive procedure that can reduce the appearance of puffy and tired eyes by filling the hollows of the “tear trough.” This smooth gel filler instantly improves eye problems such as under-eye circles, puffy eyes, and a generally tired appearance. Results can last for up to 18 months.

JUVÉDERM® can also add volume and definition to facial features while keeping your appearance looking natural, symmetrical, and well-balanced. Whether you are interested in enhancing facial features or refreshing and rejuvenating your appearance.

The treatment is comfortable thanks to the patented formulation of JUVÉDERM® XC (extra comfort) that includes lidocaine – a localized pain reliever.

 

 

Thermage™

ThermageLogoThe Thermage™ Eye Procedure is the only treatment that helps smooth and tighten skin and decrease wrinkles and hooding in the eye area without surgery or injections.Thermage works in just one treatment with little down time and delivers a natural looking result. It’s you… just younger looking and more confident!

How does Thermage work?

Thermage® treatments are all about energy – focusing radio-frequency energy to kick start the body’s own natural renewal process. Like most smart technologies, the process is relatively simple – it’s a combination of heat energy to treat deep tissue, and cooling effects, to protect the skin surface and deliver better patient comfort.

How long does a treatment last?

Thermage®treatments are typically 45 minutes for eyes.

Will the treatment hurt?

Throughout the procedure, your medical technician will ask for feedback on the level of heat sensation to help balance your comfort with maximum results. After treatment, your skin may be slightly red, but most people resume regular activities immediately after treatment. There’s typically no recovery time or special follow-up care.

How many treatments will I need?

One treatment is all you will need to see and feel real results.

How long do the results last?

While treatment results have been observed to last for at least 2 years, studies indicate that the beneficial changes to skin collagen can last over 2 years in some cases. As with virtually all skin restorative techniques, including surgical facelifts, the original aging symptoms may slowly return as the aging and sun damage process continues.

What kind of results can I expect?

Most patients can see and feel Thermage®results very soon after treatment – in as little as one day.  Continued improvements and contouring can happen for up to six months as your body regenerates collagen. Your body actually produces new collagen which is how the collagen matrix thickens and creates a smoothing effect. Even better, results can last years.

RegenPlasma Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections (P.R.P)

RegenLabPlasma

The use of PRP is not new, and has long been recognized for its accelerated wound healing properties in surgical applications as well as sports injuries.These days, this technology is being used for cosmetic enhancement with outstanding results.

Many people, including movie stars as well as celebrities, are having this treatment to utilize their body’s own healing potential and to stimulate natural skin rejuvenation.

 

Who should have Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy?

PRP is ideal for people who want to improve the texture of their skin, add volume to their face and reduce fine lines without undergoing plastic surgery. PRP has a thickening and tightening effect on the skin, leaving you with a youthful glow.

What areas can be treated with Regen Plasma™?

  • crepey neck
  • around the eyes
  • back of the hands
  • décolletage

How many treatments will I need?

The number of PRP treatments you will need is dependent upon factors such as your age and the condition of your skin. It is recommended that you have two to three treatments at intervals of four weeks. You may need to have maintenance treatments every six to twelve months depending upon your personal needs.

How long will the results last?

PRP Treatment results vary from person to person, although in most patients the results last between 18 to 24 months. The use of cosmeceuticals (a cosmetic that has medicinal properties, glo makeup) and pharmaceutical grade skin care (Vivier Skin Care) would aid prolonged results.

What results can I expect from PRP Therapy?

PRP Therapy results become visible after about three weeks as the platelet stimulated growth increases more collagen growth leading an improvement in the skin’s texture and tone.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy for Men

Cosmetic treatments are not limited to women only! An increasing number of men are also choosing this type of procedure in order to enhance their looks and give them a competitive edge.
