RN Martin Desmarais Registered Nurse Div 1
Martin Desmarais extends our services in facial enhancements and cosmetic applications. Moving from nursing in a hospital environment in the 90’s, he developed an interest in more long term relationships with clients, and his need for artistic expression attracted him to cosmetic medicine in 2000. Since then, he has developed a solid reputation amongst the industry both as an educator and practitioner. His skills go beyond the technical delivery of an injection. He has an eye for detail and understanding of beauty believing that improving one’s appearance does not equal eradicating all wrinkles. He truly delivers the “natural” and “fresh” look. Martin formally trained as a Registered Nurse, with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Universite de Montreal, Canada and so he speaks French too!
What are Wrinkle Injections?
Wrinkle injections are procedures where an active ingredient is injected into the treatment area to relax muscles that cause wrinkles. Currently, on 2 brands of Botulinum Toxin Type A protein are available on the market.
What is involved in treatment?
During your initial consultation, your practitioners will take a full history of your health, medication, allergies and experience with cosmetic injections. You’ll have a chance to discuss all your concerns and have a treatment plan customized for your specific needs, with prices.
A small amount of solution is injected into the selected facial muscles using a very fine needle. The procedure only takes about 10 minutes and the discomfort is minimal and brief. After the injection, it takes about 5-7 days to notice the effect and 10 days for the full effect.
Is this treatment safe?
The solution has been used for cosmetic purposes for over 15 years and for medical purposes for over 25 years. In addition to its cosmetic use, the solution has been used to treat cerebral palsy in children and movement disorders in adults. Although the wrinkle injections have been used for many years they should not be used in pregnancy, lactating mothers and a couple of very rare medical conditions. It is very important to tell your cosmetic practitioner if you have health problems or are on any medication prior to treatment. No medication is currently a contra-indication to go ahead with the procedure; it is normal practice to have a full history in file before the administration of a prescription drug.
Are side effects possible with wrinkle injections?
Although side effects do occasionally occur, your practitioner takes particular care to minimise them. Minor side effects include bruising which may last 5-7 days, occasional redness or swelling which usually goes in a few hours. A dull head ache sometimes occurs on the first treatment, resolving by itself and not requiring any action taken.
The rarer more significant side effects include uneven results, poor or failed results, puffiness around the eyes and uneven mouth or eye droop if the wrinkle injections placement is inappropriate. These more significant side effects usually improve in 2-4 weeks and can improve quicker with appropriate care.
How long do wrinkle injections last?
It lasts for approximately 3 months, depending on the individual. The result will usually wear off progressively after 2 months as expression lines gradually return to their original appearance. The lines will never be worse after treatment. For some clients, the more repeat treatments you have the less frequently it is required as the effects may last longer with each application.
