Benefits of Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation
Over time, our skin changes as a result of aging, sun damage and several other factors, causing wrinkles, pigmentation, and scarring to develop on our faces. Many patients unhappy with these changes seek cosmetic treatments to restore their appearance and maintain a beautiful, youthful and fresh face. These nonsurgical treatments safely and effectively enhance the appearance of the skin while still allowing patients to look like themselves. There are several different treatments available to help reverse or improve facial changes and allow patients to restore a refreshed, younger-looking appearance that reflects the way they feel about themselves. Many patients choose to combine one or more rejuvenation options, or to combine their treatment with plastic surgery procedures such as a facelift or brow lift to maximize results.
Types of Facial Fillers we offer
Intradermal injections of hyaluronic acid (a natural substance present in all living organisms) can fill in expression lines, wrinkles, irregularities, scars and depressions. Dr. Borsuk uses all the brands available on the market, choosing the different products to best treat particular areas. The most common areas for treatment are the lines around the nose and mouth, lips, cheeks and chin for contouring and enhancement. Dr. Borsuk can also use filler to perform non-surgical rhinoplasties to correct slight bumps of the nose. The results usually last from 6 to 18 months, depending on the type of filler and the individual patient, and can be repeated to maintain results.
Neuromodulator injections (Botox®)
Botulinum toxin type A is a neuromodulator that is found in products such as Cosmetic Botox®, Dysport® and Xeomin®. Neuromodulators are used to reduce the signs of aging. Botox Cosmetic® in particular is used in dermatology to rejuvenate the skin and reduce the appearance of expression lines. The most common treatment areas are frown lines, crow’s feet, upper-lip lines (smoker’s lines) and forehead lines. Botox Cosmetic® can also be used to diminish neck and nose wrinkles, as well as used along the jawline to define and reshape strong jawlines. The amount of units used can determine how subtle or remarkable you want the results to be. Dr. Borsuk always favours natural subtle results, making patients look rested and softer looking without giving them a "frozen" look. The treatments are equally popular for men and women, since there is little downtime. The results vary from one patient to the next and the area treated, but 4 to 6 months is usually the average duration before needing to repeat.

"Excellent experience with Dr. Borsuk today. He is compassionate, professional and is clearly an expert in his field. I am very thankful for the input he gave me today regarding cosmetic options following extensive facial skin cancer and reconstruction. Highly highly recommended!" - Patricia B.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Laser skin rejuvenation may involve the use of intense pulsed light (IPL), V-beam or ablative laser resurfacing ( C02) to reduce the signs of aging and improve the overall appearance of the skin. Laser treatments stimulate collagen production for improved aesthetic results. Patients often need several sessions to achieve their desired results, but this treatment can completely remove age spots and other unwanted spots on the skin. It is safer and less invasive than traditional resurfacing procedures.
What is Hand Rejuvenation?
Hand rejuvenation is a restorative treatment using skin fillers to replace lost volume and improve the overall appearance of the hand. Surgical techniques may also be used to remove cysts or other harmless but unattractive lesions that may develop on the hands. Your doctor will develop a customized treatment plan for each patient based on their aesthetic goals. Our hand rejuvenation services take 30 minutes to two hours to perform, depending on the techniques used and the extent of treatment required. Patients can return home shortly after the procedure.
The skin of the hand is first injected with a biocompatible filler that stimulates collagen production and thickens the skin, making tendons and veins less visible. Laser treatments work with the filler to improve the texture of the skin while also removing sunspots and other unwanted blemishes.
For most patients, desired results can usually be achieved after a series of three or four laser treatments spaced six weeks apart.
