Injectables That Go Beyond Just a Beautiful Face
It’s no secret that injectables can help you achieve a youthful glow by eliminating fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing out the skin, facial contouring, and even filling the lips to create a plump, luscious smile. However, medical injectables such as neuromodulators (Botox) can be used for a variety of wellness solutions, targeting many of your health and beauty concerns without the need for harsher or more invasive treatments.
Neuromodulators such as Botox can be used for hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, as well as muscle spasms and migraines. It has also been beneficial when administered to those who have undergone surgery to help prevent permanent scarring and enhance the healing process.
Our medical professionals are always available to discuss these options with you and provide you with innovative and tailored solutions to your biggest concerns. We are the experts, and you are in good hands at our clinic.
Our team of medical experts are licensed, certified, highly skilled, and trained in administering the following types of injectables:
Neuromodulators (BOTOX®) is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures of all time. It is a purified protein that reduces activity by the muscles on the face, reducing the appearance of frown lines on the forehead, around the eyes, and between the brows.
What’s more impressive is that BOTOX® continues to grow in popularity year after year in spite of ever growing competition from a wide range of other neuromodulator products such as Nucieva, Dysport, Xeomine. It’s true that these other products usually work in a different way from BOTOX®, but the desired results are often similar: a smoother, more youthful looking face—and far fewer wrinkles. Neuromodulator (BOTOX®) are particularly good at targeting deep wrinkles that are caused by muscle contractions.
These wrinkles are, basically, created when you tense your face too often. At Wellness ☤ Cosmetic Clinic by Body.Bar, we generally see patients who have deep smile or frown lines, crow’s feet, and stress lines in the forehead or interested in a Brow lift. These wrinkles, especially when they’re deep, are often created by muscle tension. The Neuromodulator (BOTOX®) injections actually interfere with the neurotransmitters that create this muscle tension, effectively paralyzing that muscle—but in a very controlled and deliberate way, so as to eliminate the wrinkle.
BOTOX® and other neuromodulators are safe, reliable injectable medications, which blocks the actions of certain nerves. For wrinkles, this means relaxing the muscles that crease the skin or pull the skin down. For excess sweating, it disables the nerves, which stimulate the sweat glands.
BOTOX® is the brand name of a protein produced in the laboratory from the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. At Wellness ☤ Cosmetic Clinic by Body.Bar, we specialize in many different types of neuromodulators. Upon your professional consultation with your practioners the best neuromodulator will be recommended to best suit your beauty concerns. Patients can feel confident in knowing that our Pracitioner and Cosmetic Nurses are highly trained in injections.

A lip flip is a quick injectable service which involves the injection of botox in your ‘cupids bow’ which is the middle of your upper lip and into the corners of your mouth. The injection temporarily relaxes the muscles around your lip which causes the part of your upper lip that is inside your mouth to flip upwards and outwards giving your lip a fuller appearance.
Who is a good candidate for this procedure?
People who opt for the lip flip procedure are those who:
- Hoping to achieve fuller lips without the use of dermal fillers
- Feel their upper lip disappears when they smile
- Someone who would like to have a less ‘gummy’ smile, a gummy smile is when someone tends to show their upper gums when smiling
What is the difference between a lip flip and dermal filler?
Lip flips and dermal fillers both result in fuller looking lips, but the procedures are different. Lip flips only appear to make lips plumper, where dermal fillers actually make the lips fuller by using hyaluronic acid that helps give the skin structure and a hydrated appearance.
Lip flips on the other hand use a small amount of botox to relax the muscles around your upper lip, allowing the the lip to turn upwards, resulting in a fuller appearance.
The lip flip can be booked as a stand alone appointment for a subtle lip plump or added to any botox or dermal filler appointment.
As you age, your skin loses elasticity. It just can’t snap back into place quite as easily. And as your skin loses elasticity, it can often begin to sag, creating wrinkles and excess skin. In other words, this sagging skin can make you look far older than you feel. Think about a balloon that’s run out of air—that’s basically what happens to your skin as it loses elasticity. That’s why a group of cosmetic surgeons developed what are called injectable fillers, sometimes referred to as injectable volumizers. This includes famous brand names such as Voluma and Juvederm, not to mention Restylane or Radiesse, Stylage, Ravanesse, Teoysal.
Injectable fillers in most cases function just how they sound like they’d work: they fill lost volume. They blow the balloon back up to make the skin look smooth. Some injectable fillers do this using a substance called hyaluronic acid or a formulation of that substance. While it may have a somewhat intimidating name, hyaluronic acid is actually a chemical found within your own body already. Adding hyaluronic acid gets your natural collagen processes jumpstarted, not only providing volume but also helping to generate a collagen lattice to give that volume some structure.
Time has proven that injectable fillers are a versatile group of procedures. Indeed, injectable fillers are a primary component of many of the innovative non-surgical treatments available at Wellness ☤ Cosmetic Clinic by Body.Bar. Some fillers will last roughly six months, while others can last years.
Some fillers are designed for deep tissue while others are best at targeting more shallow areas.
Hyperhidrosis is a condition where sufferers experience excessive perspiration. While usually localized in the underarms, face, hands and feet, hyperhidrosis can also be generalized throughout the entire body. It is not uncommon for those with hyperhidrosis to go through several changes of clothing throughout the day and often has a negative effect on self-esteem. While considered by many to be embarassing, hyperhidrosis is surprisingly common, affecting 1%-2% of Canadian adults. In more severe cases, it can lead to painful and irritating skin conditions, such as fungal and bacterial infections.
Botox is a well known anti-aging treatment, but did you know it can also be used to treat severe sweating? Botox (botulinum toxin type A), consists of a purified protein produced by a bacterium. Botox is an FDA and Health Canada approved prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and can be used to treat chronic migraines, cervical dystonia, eyelid spasms and even those suffering from crossed eyes.
Using a very fine needle, Botox is injected into the affected area, blocking the release of a chemical in the nervous system responsible for the activation of sweat glands, known as acetylcholine. Localized tenderness or bruising following the treatment is normal, and usually subsides within a day.
Microbotox: The HD Lift
Also known as intradermal Botox, this treatment works by targeting the sweat and oil glands in the skin as well as the erector pili muscles, which are responsible for opening the pores. By temporarily weakening these muscles and glands, the skin becomes noticeably tighter, smoother and more refined. The procedure makes the skin of your face look delicate, poreless and lifted. The injections are performed on a superficial level and do not affect the muscles involved in facial expression, like “conventional” Botox injections. In fact, this procedure is ideally done immediately after conventional Botox treatment.
Micro-Botox has good synergy with other aesthetic treatments, such as Fraxel (Co2 Laser) or HIFU. Many celebrities are using this treatment to achieve a flawless look in front of the camera. Intradermal Botox may also be a solution for people suffering from acne. By suppressing oil production and inhibiting inflammation, Micro-Botox treatment allows the skin to heal. While it should not be the first line of defense against acne, it is definitely worth considering for those who have not seen results from other treatments.
Micro-Botox is not like conventional Botox, so it does not target any muscles responsible for facial movement. The solution is injected superficially and therefore only targets the upper surface of skin, where oil production and acne occur.
The procedure makes the skin look delicate, poreless and rejuvenated! In other words, Microbotox essentially gives you a natural-looking facelift with zero downtime.
Tear Trough Treatments
An increasingly popular treatment and safer alternative to surgical procedures is the use of injectable fillers to fill out the tear trough. Replacement of lost volume without the need for surgery can lead to dramatic improvement. Over the last decade, injectable fillers comprised of pure Hyaluronic Acid, a natural component produced by the body have been continuously used with proven effectivity and no downtime. Redensity II is the newest most effective product on the market for the tear trough treatment.
The aim of the treatment is to inject the filler deep below the soft tissue surrounding the orbitomalar ligament, thereby lifting the tissue and making the tear trough appear shallower and far less visible. In most patients, a reduction in the depth and width of the tear trough is visible almost immediately. Under eye dark circles often caused by shadows within the trough itself also show a significant improvement.
The tear trough is the groove between where the lower eyelid and cheeks meet. One of the first noticeable signs of aging is the appearance and gradual worsening of under eye dark circles, due to thinning of the overlying skin and soft tissue over the bony orbital rim. A band of tethering fibrous tissue called the orbitomalar ligament binds the skin beneath the lower eyelid to the underlying rim of the eye socket. Because of surrounding fat and thicker skin surrounding this area, this ligament tends to be hidden when we are younger. As we get older, due to age atrophy of the adjacent tissues and thinning of the skin, this deep attachment between the skin and orbital rim becomes more and more visable.
Sclerotherapy is a popular method of closing down or obliterating spider angiomata and superficial telangiectasias (“spider veins”). The treatment works by injecting a sclerosing agent via a tiny needle into the veins. This injection causes sclerosis or irritation of the lining of the vessel that leads to its closure. Much like a resolution of a bruise, this process creates a gradual fading of the treated vessel over a period of several weeks to several months. Despite meticulous technique, multiple injections are needed to obliterate these small vessels.
The majority of people who have sclerotherapy performed will see their spider veins and varicosities disappear, or at least see good improvement. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that sclerotherapy will be completely effective in every case.
The number of treatments needed to clear or improve the condition differs from patient to patient, depending on the extent of spider veins present, the location of these veins, and skin colour. One to six or more treatments may be needed; the average number of treatments is three to five.
The injections are superficial and feel like an insect bite. After the treatment, in areas of injection, you may feel pressure for 2-3 days.
With this treatment, there is no downtime, although It is beneficial to wear compression stockings after the treatment. Compression stalking will promote circulation. Increased circulation will help support the best results.
