Wrinkles, Lines, Folds and Lips » Laser Centre In Saskatoon, Regina & Edmonton Canada
Midwest Cosmetic and Laser Surgery Centre offers its patients some of the most effective and advanced gel fillers available for use in lip augmentation and sculpting, line and wrinkle smoothing and facial contouring procedures.
Juvéderm™, Restylane™, and Teosyal™ are product lines used for lips, lines and contour procedures. Each of these product lines is based on hyaluronic acid, an important and naturally occurring material within the body that holds and binds water.
These water binding properties are important for the complexion as they help skin maintain its volume and vitality. Over time, as lines and wrinkles develop, use of properly selected hyaluronic acid products can rejuvenate the skin and minimize lines and wrinkles by adding to natural supplies that diminish in the skin and lips over time.
Each product line carried by the Midwest Laser Centre offers different hyaluronic gel consistencies. Each gel has been developed specifically for a unique purpose; to smooth different types of lines, wrinkles and folds, augment, redefine or reshape lips or enhance facial contouring. By having such product choice we are able to use products within each line, individually or in combination to customize your result.
Botox™ is different from the aforementioned products as it is a purified protein substance that is used to relax the muscles.
The best treatment option or combination of treatment options for your specific concern or interest will be determined in a personal consultation. After thorough discussion of what you hope to achieve and an examination of the condition of your skin a product line and/or product combination will be selected.
Thermage CPT Skin Tightening
Thermage treatments are a popular and effective way to tighten loose skin and restore a youthful appearance to your complexion. The procedure stimulates the contraction of existing collagen, in addition to stimulating the production of new collagen over a period of time.
Thermage treatment is based on Radio Frequency (RF) energy’s interaction with skin’s collagen. The principle benefits of Thermage treatments are the reduction of signs of aging and improvement in skin laxity and appearance however, it is important to note that some forms of acne and acne scarring can also be improved. Thermage techniques can also be used to tighten and tone skin that may have loosened following pregnancy and weight loss.
Some immediate results are usually visible and improve over time in the course of your body’s natural collagen rebuilding process. For most patients, measurable tightening and contouring gradually appear in the two to twelve months following a single treatment session. Results can last years depending on your skin condition and aging process.
There is no special care needed after treatment and most patients return to their regular activities immediately following treatment.

BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
BOTOX® Cosmetic blocks the release of a substance called acetylcholine. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe wrinkles to form.
BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the surface
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.
