Light Treatments or Injectables: How to Choose

At our facial rejuvenation clinic in Vancouver, we offer many options to help you transform the appearance and health of your skin. But which procedures are right for you? Here’s a guide to help you decide:

  • Light Therapy: Lightwave™ LED Therapy uses low intensity red, blue and infrared light, which is absorbed by the cells. The cells convert the light energy into cellular energy, which stimulates the production of collagen along with tissue repair and regeneration processes. This can create not only cosmetic benefits but therapeutic benefits as well.
  • BOTOX Cosmetic®: BOTOX injections can be useful for softening expression lines caused by dynamic movements such as frowning and raising one’s eyebrows. It reduces frown lines and forehead creases by blocking nerve impulses, allowing the muscles to relax.
  • Dermal Fillers: It is said that the hallmark of the aging process is loss of facial fullness or volume. Injectable dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM® and Sculptra® help to restore youthful volume and diminish facial folds.

Dr. Braun often uses the acronym C-T3 (colour, tone, texture and tightening) when explaining some of the issues lasers address. We offer a variety of methods to help smooth and tighten skin and even out skin tone, including intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy and Thermage® (radiofrequency energy) treatments. A consultation with your skincare professional can help you determine the best choice for your particular needs.
