Botox® and Dysport® are both drugs made from a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostiridium botulinum called botulinum toxin. It is used to treat specific muscular conditions and cosmetically remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles. Botox® and Dysport® are primarily used for relaxing expressive muscles that create wrinkles on the face. However, they may also be used to treat problems including: repetitive neck spasms, excessive sweating, overactive bladder, and a few cases of crossed eyes.
IPL photorejuvenation treatment, otherwise known as intense pulsed light treatment or photodynamic therapy, treats skin conditions and removes effects of aging such as wrinkles, spots, and textures. The procedure involves using flash lamps to produce high intensity light over broad visible and infrared wavelengths with filters that select the desired range. IPL is used to treat dyschromia, rosacea, melasma, acne, photodamage, vascular and pigmented lesions, and rhytides.
Laser resurfacing is a treatment used to reduce facial wrinkles and skin imperfections such as blemishes or acne scars. The technique uses short yet concentrated pulsating beams of light to remove skin layer by layer at the target site. You may have heard of this procedure referred to as lasabrasion, laser peel, or laser vaporization. This treatment is for you if you have wrinkles around your eyes, mouth, or forehead, scars from acne, or non-responsive skin following a facelift.

Dermabrasion was designed to improve acne scars, pox marks, and scars from accidents or disease. Dermabrasion is typically only safe for people with fair skin. However, microdermabrasion works on all skin types and colours! It makes slight changes and causes no skin colour change or scarring. Microdermabrasion results in less downtime than demabrasion with skin being pink for only 24 hours before fully recovering.
