Bespoke Lip Injections with Juvederm
Waterloo Medical Cosmetics is one of the leading providers of Juvederm in Kitchener-Waterloo. Our Cosmetic Nurses are highly trained and experienced -- and because none of our staff is on commission, our focus stays on making you a more beautiful version of yourself!
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a medical gel (hyaluronic acid) that adds volume and definition to the face for a refreshed, feminine look -- especially in the lips and under-eyes. These gels do not affect the way the facial muscles move and as a consequence, they create an amazingly natural, refreshed look to the face.
What To Expect From Treatment
After booking an appointment with us, you’ll receive an email that will provide you with the basic details (such as our address and parking information), along with a list of to-do’s and don’ts to ensure your session goes smoothly. An hour or so before your appointment, we’ll send you a text message to remind you. Upon arrival, you’ll meet our reception staff who will direct you to the treatment room. You’ll meet our Cosmetic Nurses Anndrea or Kelly, who will discuss your goals, the risks and benefits of our treatments and make some suggestions. Our staff are never commissioned, so the advice they give is truly what they think is best for you! This will be followed by a consultation with our physician, Dr. Michalski, MD, either in person or through tele-medicine. Assuming that you are medically appropriate for our care, our treatments can generally be carried out in the same day. Afterwards, you’ll receive information on booking after your face post-treatment. After this, you’ll be good to go!
What is a laser and how do they work?
Lasers use specific wavelengths of light to penetrate the skin or hair follicle. By adjusting the wavelengths of the light, the intensity and the surface area affected, our Skin Specialists can cause a wide range of changes to the skin.
Are these treatments safe?
We understand it is natural to worry about any treatments that take place around the eyes, be it lash lifts, extensions, or even microblading. At Waterloo Medical Cosmetics, our experts take utmost care to ensure our procedures don't harm your eyes. We also use proven products which don’t damage the sensitive skin around your eyes.
What does it feel like and are there side effects?
Although our laser’s have a large range of uses, there can be side effects. Post treatment you may notice some mild burning/tightening sensation, redness, swelling, which is completely normal. It would be unusual for pain to linger or for blistering to occur, occasionally the laser can cause cold-sores to flare, we will not work on an area with active cold-sores, this will be discussed during your consultation.
The sensation during the procedure has sometimes been compared to a light rubber band snapping against the area that becomes less noticeable after a few minutes, we offer numbing and cooling for patient comfort, but most clients say it is quick and painless. In particular, our Coolpeel laser, is used for skin resurfacing to create glowing skin, it was specifically designed for minimal discomfort and downtime, creating only a mild “sunburn-like” redness for a day or so and leaves you with the smoothest, glowing skin.
To reduce the chance of complications, we’ll send you home with post-treatment instructions and a list of do’s and don’ts. In particular, you’ll want to avoid touching the area, certain medications like retinol and strenuous activities for a few days. Not to worry, our Skin Specialists will guide you through the entire process, so you know what to do!
