Dr. Linda Ptito has been aware of the benefits of dermal wrinkle fillers for decades. She was one of the first to administer collagen injections in Montreal in the 1980′s. Now, the latest generation of dermal fillers – such as JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® – have replaced collagen treatments at her Montreal practice for results that are more consistent and longer lasting.
The repeated movement of facial muscles causes wrinkling of the overlying skin. Over time, as the skin becomes less elastic, the lines become etched and wrinkles are visible even when muscles are not contracting. These lines can give an impression of anger, anxiety, sadness or fatigue.
Neuromodulators such as Botox, Dysport or Xeomin are a purified protein that relaxes the muscles responsible for wrinkles, creating a softened, refreshed, younger look. It is a simple, quick, non-surgical treatment that gets natural-looking results.
It is injected in small doses. By inhibiting the nerve impulses that contract the muscles that cause wrinkles, the muscles relax and wrinkles fade. The discomfort is minimal, often described as a small bug bite lasting just seconds. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately after treatment. The effects become apparent after 2 to 3 days and reach their peak after 7 to 10 days.
Dr. Linda Ptito is a pioneer in the use of neuromodulators in Montreal for the treatment of a variety of facial wrinkles. She’s been using it in her practice since 1994. At her Clinique Médico-Esthétique in Montreal, neuromodulators are administered skillfully and artfully to take years off of your appearance without surgery or downtime.
