DR. GABRIELA LEWIN- NEUROTOXIN, FILLERS and Skin Therapy CLINIC IN OTTAWA

Home/Services

As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and cannot spring back the way it once did. As the natural collagen in our bodies diminishes, creases & wrinkles start to appear, and our skin begins to sag. Our safe and non-surgical neurotoxin and filler treatments are fast and effective methods of turning back the clock, replacing the natural collagen support layer beneath your skin, and defeating our skin’s ability to wrinkle. The end result is a rejuvenated look that is subtle and discrete, with improved confidence and even the prevention of new wrinkles. Not limited to aesthetic enhancements, our injectable treatments can also improve quality of life for some patients, mitigating numerous issues ranging from hyperhidrosis, jaw pain (TMJ), migraines to fat dissolution. A consultation with Dr. Lewin is recommended to help determine the ideal treatment for each patient.

WE OFFER A VARIETY OF NEUROTOXIN, FILLER SERVICES And Skin Therapy IN OUR OTTAWA CLINIC.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers can produce instant results, taking years off your appearance.

Consider dermal fillers to replace volume in your tear troughs, erase smoking lines, enhance your lips or even reshape your jawline. Dermal fillers restore lost volume and help to sculpt youthful-looking contours and definition. Dermal fillers typically consist of Hyaluronic Acid, which is a naturally occurring substance made in the body. This makes it ideal for those who suffer from allergic reactions.

“Hyperhidrosis” is defined by the National Library of Medicine as “a medical condition in which a person sweat excessively and unpredictably. People with hyperhidrosis may sweat even when the temperature is cool or when they are at rest.” For those who suffer from hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), our neurotoxin treatments can provide reliable relief temporarily blocking the nerves that cause sweating.

MICRO-NEEDLING

Micro-needling treatments are a non-surgical, minimally invasive rejuvenation procedure, using numerous tiny needles to stimulate new collagen and skin tissue, resulting in smoother, brighter and firmer skin. Using the Eclipse Micropen EVO device, Dr. Lewin’s micro-needling treatments promote skin renewal, gradually smoothing uneven facial texture and improving skin quality. Sometimes referred to as collagen induction therapy, micro-needling is also considered effective when used to treat fine lines, large and/or open pores, signs of aging and some types of minor scarring including acne scars and may also be used to reduce the appearance of stretch marks and sunspots.

During your consultation, Dr. Lewin will discuss the procedure with you including pre-and post-treatment recommendations. During your treatment, a numbing gel will be applied for comfort and either hyaluronic acid serum or Platelet- Rich- Plasma (PRP) will be used to increase collagen production and spur the healing process. Non-surgical and minimally invasive, micro-needling requires no downtime although you may experience minor redness for 12-24 hours.

PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP) TREATMENTS (Aka “Vampire facial”)

Platelets are cells naturally found in the blood that encourage healing. The platelet cells are extracted by drawing a small blood sample which is then agitated to separate the platelets and blood plasma from the red blood cells. The result is platelet-rich plasma that is then re-injected into the targeted area for treatment. Once re-injected, the platelets break down and release growth factors to help cells repair or renew, triggering the body’s healing process. In medicine, PRP treatments are often used to stimulate the healing of injury or burns. By encouraging the growth of tissue with PRP, the body develops a mesh just as it does when healing an injury. PRP treatments are safe, non-invasive procedures that work by injecting concentrated platelets into targeted areas to treat various conditions. By activating the body’s natural healing system, PRP treatments can reveal fresh, younger-looking skin.

PRP FOR HAIR LOSS

Not limited to facial rejuvenation, PRP treatments work by injecting concentrated platelets into targeted areas to treat various conditions, including hair loss. Men and women who are looking to treat hair loss (androgenic alopecia) could benefit from injections of PRP into the scalp. By increasing the blood supply to the hair follicle, PRP injections can trigger natural hair growth. Treatments can also increase the number of hair follicles as well as the thickness of the hair shaft; leading to a thicker head of hair. Similar to the PRP treatments described above, the rich-in-platelets plasma is injected into the scalp after a numbing treatment has been applied. PRP treatments for hair loss take approximately 30-45 minutes and best results are achieved through a minimum of 3-4 treatments scheduled 4-6 weeks apart.

CHEMICAL PEELS

By applying a chemical solution that causes shedding of the skin’s superficial layers, a chemical peel can improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck and hands. Afterwards, the new, regenerated skin appears smoother and less wrinkled. Chemical peels are also used to treat brown spots, acne scars, oily skin and fine lines. Dr. Lewin offers two types of chemical peels; Renew 30 and Glow Peel. A great way to refresh with no downtime, Renew 30 peels cause a very mild exfoliation, resulting in immediately smoother and freshened skin. Safely and effectively evening out skin tone, reducing brown spots and diminishing fine lines & wrinkles, the Glow Peel, a modified Jessner peel causes a mild exfoliation (peeling) 2-7 days after application. Chemical peels chemical peels are ALUMIERMD and require a consultation with Dr. Lewin to discuss pre-and post-treatment care and to determine the ideal treatment for you.

Five Benefits of Injectable Treatments

Fast Results!

Some injectable treatments produce visible results immediately, while others require only a few days to achieve a relaxed and refreshed look. While best results occur with ongoing treatment, you’ll be thrilled with improvements you can see right away.

No Downtime

Botox® and fillers can be booked on your lunch break, with no one else the wiser.

Subtle Results

Unlike surgery, Botox® and fillers offer subtle and natural-looking refinements. In just a few days, you’ll still look like you, at your best.

Wrinkle Prevention

As neuromodulators “freeze” the muscle activity in a particular area, new and deeper lines are prevented from forming.

Long-Lasting Results

While each product and its use vary, you can expect your results to last several months before requiring a touch-up for maintenance.
