Cosmetically, Neurotoxins can revitalize your look by softening fine lines that are precipitated by frequent use of facial expressions. These injectables are derived from highly purified, naturally occurring proteins and are used for treatment of wrinkles by relaxing the targeted muscles. Botox®, Dysport® & Nuceiva® are all Health Canada Approved Botulinum Toxin type A injectables that we carry in our clinic, and results can last up to 3 months or longer.
There are many uses for neurotoxins, our clients most commonly use these injections to treat:
· Frown Lines (aka "11's")
· Forehead Wrinkles
· Bunny Lines (sides of the upper nose)
· Crow's Feet (around the eyes)
· Smoker's Lines (above the lips)
· "Lip Flips", to create the appearance of fuller lips without the need for dermal fillers
· “Gummy Smile” to assist your upper lip to be lowered when smiling, resulting in less gum line show.
The treatment is completed with small injections to each targeted area and usually completed within 30 minutes. Results can be seen within 7 to 14 days and generally last up to 3 months or some cases longer depending on the product, area, and your body's unique characteristics.

Submental fullness, also known as “double chin” can be the result of multiple factors such as genetics, weight gain and aging. We offer a non-surgical treatment that can help with the reduction of stubborn fat below the chin and other smaller areas of the body. (Around the bra area, upper knees, back of arm, etc)
Deoxycholic acid, also known as Belkyra, Kybella, or Lipodissolve, is found naturally occurring within the body. It’s’ primary function is to break down fat. It can be injected in the fat beneath the chin, and other areas, to help destroy fat cells causing unwanted and stubborn fullness.
you are likely to experience increased swelling and numbness to the area that was treated. These side effects usually resolve in their own within a couple of weeks.
Recommended course of treatment: 2-6 sessions, each spaced 4-6 weeks apart until desired result is achieved.
Please request a consultation with one of our trusted health practitioners to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for fat dissolving treatments.
Hair loss and thinning are common issues for men and women which can negatively effect confidence and self image. Fortunately, we offer a procedure to treat, and significantly reduce hair loss and thinning. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a non-surgical and natural procedure.
Did you know that 40% of men start experiencing significant hair loss by the age of 35?
During this treatment, growth factors, as well as platelets, are extracted from your own blood and plasma to stimulate hair growth, collagen production, and skin renewal. These growth factors and platelets are then delivered to areas of hair thinning and loss through a series of micro-injections.
you may experience some mild discomfort for a couple of days. You can resume most activities the day of your treatment, and shower/wash your hair the following day. (Multiple sessions are required for noticeable results)
Recommended Course of Treatment: 3-6 sessions, each spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

Following a healthy diet and exercise plan but not seeing as much weight loss as you'd like?
The Slim Shot is all natural bi-weekly injection that helps boost metabolism and support healthy weight loss. Some experts believe that these lipotropic compounds may accelerate the fat metabolism rate when combined with the right diet and exercise.
As an added bonus, lipotropic injections can help maintain energy levels, correct hormone imbalances, improve liver function and promote a calm and balanced mood.
Lipotropic weight-loss injections are a combination of natural ingredients designed to help you shed unwanted pounds while improving your energy and well-being. In addition to Vitamin B-12, the Slim Shot contains, methionine, inositol, and choline; three amino acids that are essential to mobilizing fat.
Methionine is a protein-based amino acid that helps your body release fatty proteins, inositol prevents fat storage to help stimulate the removal of fat from the liver, and choline prevents cholesterol and fat build-up within your arteries.
Recommended frequency: One injection every two weeks as needed.
It is estimated that a high majority of the population may be deficient in Vitamin B12 obtained from diet alone. Aging can be a contributor to reduced absorption of vitamin B12.
This reduced absorption can exacerbate chronic fatigue and anemia. Benefits of Vitamin B12 injections may include improved energy and stamina, improved sleep, increased metabolism, improved clarity and mood, reduced depression, balanced digestive system, and healthier looking skin and nails.
Recommended fequency: Monthly as needed
