We understand that surgery may not be right for everyone, and that the most appropriate treatment may be a less invasive option. Whether you are looking for preventative anti-aging options or the correction of a focused area, we can provide you with a personalized approach to treatment that may include pharmaceutical grade skin care products, Botox, Fillers, or surgery.

Latisse is the first an only FDA and Health Canada approved prescription medication for thicker longer eyelashes. Daily topical application of Latisse to the upper eyelid lashes is quick and easy. A dramatic enhancement of eyelash length and volume will usually be noticed within 8-12 weeks.
The use of Botox is the most common cosmetic procedure performed in North America. It is used in the rejuvenation of the upper face to treat unwanted crows feet and forehead lines. It can also be used to prevent the formation of deep, permanent skin creases. This is a reversible procedure where the effects generally last 4-6 months.
Injectable Fillers (Juvederm)
Injectable fillers, such as Juvederm, are used as a non-surgical means to reduce the appearnce of deep folds and volume loss in the face due to the normal process of aging. Common uses include the treatment of laugh-lines and lip enhancement.
Minor Surgical Procedures
Sometimes a small change can make a big difference. Each of these procedures can be safely and comfortably performed in our office, usually within 30 – 60 minutes.
Moles and other benign skin lesions can be unattractive, distracting and a source of self-consciousness. Whether they are located on the face or elsewhere on the body, these marks can often be removed with excellent cosmetic results.
Unattractive scars may be the result of injury, prior surgery, piercings or other causes. Unfortunately, scars can not be completely eliminated, however, they can often be revised or modified so that they are significantly less noticeable. This may be accomplished by making a wide scar thinner, a raised scar flatter, or perhaps by reorienting a poorly positioned scar.
Ear Lobe Reshaping and Reduction
Torn ear lobes or dilated ear piercings can be unsightly. A minor surgical procedure can be performed to restore the shape of the ear lobe and allow the placement of a new piercing 6 months later.
As we age, ear lobes often become longer and wider. An ear lobe reduction can make a dramatic difference by restoring the shape and size of the ear lobe.
Your eyes are a central feature of your appearance and if they are affected by age-related changes prematurely they may cause you to look older than you would like. Upper eyelid surgery often incorporates the removal of excess skin which helps to elevate and define the upper eyelid crease, creating a more youthful appearance. Age related changes of the lower eyelid can manifest in many ways and as a result lower eyelid surgery may include many different techniques.
Few patients identify a sagging or low-sitting brow as a contributing factor to their aged, sad or angry look. When the eyebrows descend they lose their characteristically youthful shape and they exaggerate the presence of excess skin in the upper eyelids. A Brow Lift elevates and re-shapes the eyebrows restoring the normal boundaries of the peri-orbital region.
Face and Neck Lift
Face and neck lifts aim to achieve a natural correction of age-related changes, such as hollow cheeks, jowls and sagging necks, without creating an ‘operated’ or ‘wind-swept’ look. This is no longer a skin only operation, advanced facelift techniques focus on re-establishing the position and volume of the cheek and the contour of then neck, without relying on over-tightening of the skin.
Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)
Rhinoplasty is a highly individualized procedure whereby the shape and size of your nose can be altered to enhance harmony between your facial features.
You may just need to alter one facial feature to improve your overall look. Correction of an under-projecting chin to create better proportions between your facial features can dramatically improve your appearance.
