Botox / Dysport / Dermal Fillers

Working with Dr. Robert Krushel, we are excited to offer Botox and Dermal Filler clinics at Spa 901. 

Targeting fine lines and wrinkles, Botox and Dysport are one of the most effective ways to look younger and bring balance to your facial features.  They are especially useful in the upper face for forehead lines, frown line’s between the eyebrows and crows feet.  However, treatments can also be useful in the lower face to reduce a downturned or gummy smile, bunny nose and prominent skin bands.  

Botox treatments for medical conditions, such as Bruxism, Migrane, and Hyperhydrosis are available, please read further information below if booking Botox for medical purposes. 

Free consultations are available with Dr.Krushel for Dermal Fillers, these can be booked through our online booking page.

Botox / Dysport is administered by injecting facial muscles using very small needles.  Some northerners say the needle poke feels like a little mosquito bite, but without the itching and swelling.

These medications, when administered by an experienced physician, are a safe, effective non-surgical answer to achieving a well-rested and invigorated appearance.

Hyaluronic Acid HLA Fillers: I use Dermal Fillers that are made from Hyaluronic Acid (HLA),
a naturally occurring chemical in the body and skin that is renowned for its ability to
absorb water, providing hydration and volume to the skin.

The Aging Process: As we age, the youthful lift provided by our cheek bones and natural
upper face fat pads can diminish and slide to the lower face, leading to a drooping or
sagging appearance in the cheeks and jowls. This aging process can also contribute deep
lines and grooves in the lower face (such as deep nasolabial folds, smile lines, and
marionette lines). Small amounts of appropriately specific types of Dermal Filler can
enhance our appearance by providing lift while restoring lost volume. Dermal Fillers are
commonly used to volumize and rejuvenate such areas as the cheeks and temples to
provide lift and support, providing a more youthful and rested appearance. They can of
course provide a natural appearing lip enhancement that can last for up to a year. They are
commonly administered to soften the sunken areas such as the tear troughs, nasolabial
folds, and marionette lines. They are commonly used in the jawline and chin. Soft dermal
fillers can be injected directly into the skin to hydrate and rejuvenate, as well as to soften
perioral, smile lines, smoker’s lines, and neck lines. Dermal fillers in the nose, known as a
liquid nose job, can be effective in creating a natural and soft appearing nasal structure.

Questions and Answers:
How long do dermal fillers last? The rejuvenating effect of dermal fillers is immediately
apparent after injection. Your body will naturally absorb dermal fillers over time. An
excellent treatment effect can last from 4 months to 24 months, depending upon the type
and amount of filler used, and how quickly one’s body metabolizes it.

Are Dermal Fillers Expensive? The cost of dermal fillers depends upon several factors
including the area or areas administered, and the amount required. Usually, one treatment
is all that is required. I will not recommend any filler in excess to what you require to meet your goals. I will always be open and honest as to what dermal fillers can and cannot achieve, and I will let you know of any appropriate other options. Consultation is free.

Do Dermal Fillers hurt? Dermal Fillers are administered using small needles or cannula
through the skin and into the desired treatment area. I take a number of measures to
ensure that the procedure is as pleasant as possible, including applying anesthetic to the
skin prior to the procedure. Most dermal fillers also contain anesthetic, such that the
procedure is usually described as only mildly painful or uncomfortable.

What is your experience? I have been utilizing dermal fillers in my practice for 3 years on
hundreds of satisfied patients at multiple Medical Clinic and MedSpa locations in British
Columbia, Alberta, and the Northwest Territories. I pride myself on listening to the client’s
needs and goals via a free no-pressure consultation. I then provide my best advice for the
cost-effective approach to meet the client’s goals.

Possible side effects include:

  • Redness and swelling, bruising and discolouration, itching, and pain and tenderness at the injection sites, which could last for several days.
  • Rare side effects include ptosis (eyelid drooping), which may last for several weeks. 

Botox does not increase the volume of the face and does not cause plump or filling effects.  Dr. Krushel seeks to reduce wrinkles and fine lines while leaving natural expressions intact, resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance.

Typically 3 months.  However this depends very much on one’s metabolism and the strength of their muscles.  Effects start approximately 1 week after the injection.

You will begin to feel and see some changes in approximately 2-4 days, following  a treatment, with the full effect occurring in two weeks. We strive to create results that make the treatment area appear smoother, with reduced facial lines and wrinkles, while still looking natural.

Possible effects include redness and swelling, bruising and discolouration, itching, and pain and
tenderness at the injection sites. These side effects may last for several days. You may take
acetaminophen (Tylenol). Rare side effects include ptosis (eyelid drooping), which may last for several

For 1 Hour: Exercise the treatment muscles by frowning, raising your eyebrows, and smiling.
For 3 Hours: Remain upright (do not lie down) and do not rub the treated areas. We recommend
avoiding strenuous physical activity, hot tubs, saunas, facials, alcohol, and aspirin/anti-inflammatories for
at least several hours, and ideally, the rest of the day.

Neuromodulator treatments provide results which usually last for 3 to 4 months. Over time repeated
treatments may provide a satisfactory result for longer, and/or with less units required to maintain a
similar result.
