Treatment Considerations at Our Cosmetic Spa
No matter which beauty services you receive at our cosmetic spa, Dr. Charlebois Aesthetics in Cornwall, Ontario, is determined to provide you with the service and personal attention you need. Here, you can learn in greater detail what to expect from us and what our policies are.
Taking Pictures: Before & After Treatment
Pictures taken before the procedure help give us a better view and understanding of the areas that are affected by the loss of volume and can be used when discussing your goals with the physician. Comparing the before and after pictures is also an effective way to see the results of the treatment and will be used as a reference over time.
Identifying your injection treatment goals and needs is crucial. Several aspects are to be considered, including your age, skin quality and condition, genetics, etc., and these aspects affect the amount of product required for optimal and natural results. During the consultation, we will discuss your goals and expectations and present our expertise in order to offer the best advice based on your priorities and budget.
Proceeding with Injections
Our philosophy is to bring out the natural beauty by restoring balance to the face. Dr. Charlebois proceeds with the injections of the best hyaluronic acid product available on the market in accordance with the individual morphology of each patient. The product is injected under the skin with a needle and, depending on your goal, will restore natural contours and compensate for the loss of volume. The number of syringes needed will vary accordingly. Throughout the session, you may use a mirror to follow the procedure and participate in certain decisions. A typical injection treatment lasts approximately 30 minutes.
It is possible to return to your normal daily activities immediately after the treatment. Localized redness, swelling, and bruising may occur but will subside quickly. No actual downtime is expected. The effects are immediate, with optimum results achieved in the month following the treatment. The results will last for 10 to 12 months. After any treatment, we offer free makeup touch-ups so you can go back to your regular schedule. We only use All Mineral makeup, which is the safest type to use after having received a treatment.
Dr. Charlebois has a fantastic reputation for results and for honesty; we never overcharge, and we will never treat someone who should not be treated. Our prices are competitive, but our service is unmatched. For your convenience, we accept cash, Direct Debit (Interac), and all major credit cards for services rendered.
