5 of the most popular cosmetic procedures in Canada
When it comes to cosmetic procedures, studies suggest more and more people are opting for aesthetic interventions that help them look and feel their best, regardless of age or background. It is truly impressive what modern technological advances have managed to achieve in the world of cosmetic procedures. Today’s patients have the privilege of choosing from a veritable cornucopia of highly effective treatments—both surgical and nonsurgical alike! Not to mention, nonsurgical options have never before had such an impact, and many are more affordable than they’ve ever been!
Curious what cosmetic procedures are getting the most attention from satisfied patients? Here are 5 of the most popular procedures in Canada today:
- Botox Injectable
When injected, Botox Injectable works by blocking nerve signals—typically facial muscles beholden to repetitive expressive movements. The muscle is temporarily paralyzed or frozen, and as a result, wrinkles or furrows are softened, or even eliminated. It also diminishes the “pulled-down” look commonly affecting the brow, cheek and jowl line. Rest assured you’ll attain a smoother and more youthful appearance safely, effectively, and best of all, nonsurgically! Patients generally return 2-3 times a year to maintain results. Bonus: almost no downtime at all!
- Breast augmentation
Breast augmentations are popular as ever. The procedure introduces implants to enhance the volume, proportion and shape of your breasts. There are two kinds of breast implants used: saline and cohesive silicone gel. The latter is more common, as it offers a more natural look and feel, and higher durability. Some also opt for fat grafting implants. Dr. Mulholland is one of Canada’s most experienced breast augmentation physicians, and thanks to the use of VECTRA® 3-D pre-op breast imaging, you can actually “try before you buy” by seeing how you’ll look beforehand!
- Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are injectables that add fullness to areas that have thinned as the result of aging. They are a highly effective nonsurgical way of plumping and lifting the cheeks, lips, jawline, and temples, and are also used to lend skin a more youthful glow. While fillers are long lasting, however, the results are not permanent, and many choose to return and repeat the procedure after a year or so. Dermal fillers have a very low risk level, with nearly no side effects. As long as you follow post-care instructions, your body will heal in a matter of days!
SpaMedica offers a number of dermatological skin rejuvenation processes. Crystal peel microdermabrasion is a powerful noninvasive therapy that uses a high-speed diamond-tipped device to gently remove dead skin cells. And Dr. Mulholland’s own SonoPeel microdermabrasion procedure delivers ultrasonic energy to the skin to similar ends. Both treatments are ideal for the improvement of fine lines, wrinkles, irregularities, sunspots, oily skin, enlarged pores, and acne scarring—to name a few!
- The Nose Job
The surgical nose job is still a highly sought after reconstructive cosmetic procedure, typically as a way of improving the look, nasofacial balance, and functionality of the nose. People who have aesthetic concerns with the bridge, tip, or base of their nose, or issues breathing are ideal candidates. Patients choose SpaMedica because Dr. Mulholland has 20+ years of experience as well as a dual certification in plastic surgery and Ear, Nose, Throat (ENT) Advanced Head and Neck Oncology. So rest assured, you will achieve the best outcome possible!
