Injectables

REFRESH YOUR LOOK WITH FACIAL INJECTABLES.

RESTORE LOST FACIAL VOLUME, REDUCE FINE LINES AND WRINKLES.

Facial rejuvenation doesn’t always involve surgery. A great way to get rid of that “tired look” and soften fine lines and wrinkles is to consider facial injectables. From fillers to neuromodulators such as Botox® or Disport®, there are quite a few injectables to consider.

Facial injectables such as Botox® or Disport® can be used to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead creases, brow lines, lip lines and downturned lateral lips that give the impression of sadness and aging. Botox® can even be used to treat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) by injecting into the sweat glands of the armpits, feet or hands. Botox® works by weakening the muscles it is injected into, and can last up to 3-6 months. Its full effect usually occurs at 2 weeks post-injection.

Botox can be used effectively to:

 

decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face

reduce the appearance of crow’s feet around the eyes

diminish frown lines, forehead creases and brow lines

give a slight elevation to the lateral eyebrow

reduce excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis

Facial fillers such as Juvéderm™, Voluma™, Restylane® and Emervel® are non-surgical treatments which can be used for facial rejuvenation. There are many types of fillers, with hyaluronic acid being the most popular. This is a safe, naturally occurring sugar molecule that plumps-up the area treated. The goal with fillers is to improve your appearance by adding volume in an area that is “deflated”. In appropriately chosen patients, it will soften signs of aging and give you a more youthful appearance. Fillers can last anywhere from 6-18 months, depending on the product used and the area being treated.

Fillers can effectively be used to:

 

  • rejuvenate the face, without undergoing surgery and anaesthetic
  • restore lost volume in the hollows of the cheeks
  • recreate the appearance of high cheek bones
  • refresh your appearance without looking “overdone”
  • correct under eye “bags” (tear trough deformity)
  • contour the nasolabial folds, chin or cheeks

Reviews

I recently received breast augmentation and am extremely happy with the results

I recently received breast augmentation and am extremely happy with the results! Dr. Shortt and his staff are wonderful and very talented. I definitely recommend this surgeon to anyone who is interested in cosmetic surgery.

Dr. Shortt is a very talented and compassionate doctor

Dr. Shortt is a very talented and compassionate doctor. He takes the time to listen to your concerns, and he lets you know what’s possible and what isn’t – he will never do something that will make you look fake or “done.” Dr. Shortt likes to say that he will make you into a better version of yourself, not someone else. He goes above and beyond to achieve your goals and truly cares about his patients.

I had a septorhinoplasty done to correct my breathing and the appearance of my nose. I have always been insecure about the size and shape of my nose – I had a bit of a bulbous tip and a prominent dorsal hump. I am so thrilled with the results of my surgery! In addition to breathing better, I am also feeling a lot more confident. I used to freak out if anyone took a photo of me from the side, but now I actually encourage it!

The support staff at Briarwood are wonderful, too. They make the experience comfortable and easy.

I am extremely happy that I finally took this step

I just want to say Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job on my tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). I am very pleased! The care I received prior to, during, and after my surgery has been great. Dr. Shortt and the stuff at Briarwood cosmetic surgical centre have been very thorough and detail oriented when tending to my needs, concerns and questions. I am extremely happy that I finally took this step and LOVE my results. I wouldn’t have changed a thing and am glad I chose Dr. Shortt for my surgery.

Dr Shortt did an awesome job

I recently had a breast reduction and am so happy with the final result – Dr Shortt did an awesome job!

Dr Roger Shortt is a Genius, I am so happy with the result

I recently had a scar revision surgery to repair scars from a bilateral mastectomy. Dr Roger Shortt is a Genius, I am so happy with the result it is more than I could have hoped for. I am so grateful to Dr Shortt for his empathy kindness and professionalism. His staff reflected that image and were helpful, knowledgeable and efficient. Even though I had a bilateral I feel very happy when I see myself in the mirror. That says everything.

Best Choice I Made!

The stretch marks, loose skin and a deformed belly button from my twin pregnancy really affected my self confidence. Dr. Shortt helped me get that “old me” feeling back! He is patient, professional and truly cares for you during the recovery process. I always felt that Dr. Shortt and his team were there when I needed questions answered. Before I went for my surgery, I had no idea how important the weeks and months after would be. Now, I couldn’t be happier that I chose Dr. Shortt to be my doctor. He also makes sure that you know what to expect and that made the journey so much easier for me. Best choice I made! I finally feel like myself again.

Extremely pleased to share my recent experience with Dr. Shortt

Extremely pleased to share my recent experience with Dr. Shortt and his professional staff. The entire experience was more than I had hoped it would be. From beginning consultation to follow-up visits. Dr. Shortt and his staff are highly recommended for any results you are hoping to achieve. This team is the very best!
