Correct textural depressions for lasting improvement
If you have facial atrophic acne scars, meaning you have indented skin as a result of having had acne, the textural irregularities could be bothersome. There are many approaches available to improve these depressions and you may be conflicted, as many people are, in terms of what the optimal plan is for achieving smoother skin. Most likely you have different types of scarring and so a tailored approach which includes more than one category of treatment will be presented to you by someone who has a vast range of the most advanced options at their disposal.
Bellafill®, a semi-permanent collagen-based filler, can be injected beneath the skin to smooth out atrophic scarring. It works by adding volume below the scar to lift it to the level of the surrounding skin, thus creating more even-feeling and even-looking skin.
Bellafill® works in conjunction with your body’s natural response
As Bellafill® is injected just under the dermis, its effects are twofold. First, the product which is formulated with microspeheres of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) provides a subtle plumping of the skin for textural improvement. Second, it stimulates a boost in your own natural collagen production. This happens because after the initial collagen gel has been absorbed by your body, the microspheres remain to encourage your body to make its own tissue to replace volume and create a natural-looking plumping effect.
As compared to temporary hyaluronic dermal fillers which could also provide improvement in texture, Bellafill® offers longer correction as it can last up to five years. However, because it is not hyaluronic-acid based, it cannot be dissolved. Further, as Bellafill® contains bovine collagen, a skin test is performed prior to undergoing a treatment to rule out allergy.
Placement and precision are key
As with all injectable treatments, meticulous placement of the product via the injection technique is critical for safety as well as aesthetic outcomes. The precise depth is critical as the microspeheres must be surrounded by your existing collagen for success. Overly injecting product as well as injecting too superficially are also detrimental to the result. The right amount at the ideal depth leads to natural-looking results.
Considering the complexity of the technique and permanency of the product, finding an experienced provider is especially important. When done by the hands of a skilled specialist the treatments are successful. Hence, Bellafill® injections are carried out by surgical Dermatologist Manish Khanna, MD FRCPC.

Are you bothered by excess pockets of fat underneath your chin? Perhaps the fullness makes you look older than you feel and you wish for a more sculpted jaw-line. The profile you desire could be achieved with a non-surgical procedure whether it’s age, weight or genetics that is contributing to your double chin.
BELKYRA™ can redefine your jawline by reducing the layer of fat under your chin without having to go under the knife. It works by destroying the fat cells under your chin, leaving your skin substantially tighter and your jaw more contoured.
Eliminate fat with a naturally occurring substance
BELKYRA™ is the synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a fat-absorbing substance found in your body naturally. When precisely injected into the area, a process of fat cell elimination commences. The fat that is destroyed is naturally eliminated ,as waste, from your body. As fat cells do not regenerate once destroyed, your result is for good as long as you do not gain significant weight. The reason for this is that the existing fat cells can enlarge and shrink depending on weight fluctuations.
Results depend on the injection technique and precision
Skill and expertise are important in achieving your desired result as mastery of the precise anatomy and underlying structures of your jaw-line is crucial knowledge. Proper assessment, the technique of injecting as well as the accurate amount of the fat-dissolving substance used are all factors influencing your outcome. When done by the hands of an experienced specialist and when correctly customized to you, the treatments are successful. Hence, Belkyra™ injections are carried out by surgical Dermatologist Manish Khanna, MD FRCPC. Who better to trust with redefining your profile?

A Revolutionary approach to Clearer, Even-toned Skin
Irregular pigmentation, unevenness in skin tone and a blotchy complexion are not so desirable as they are a sign of unhealthy and aged skin. These benign pigmented lesions can be the result of environmental factors, such as ultraviolet light from sun exposure, which accelerate your skin aging process by causing thousands of cellular DNA alterations. This results in erratic melanocyte activity which manifests as pigmented spots or lesions on the areas of your body most exposed such as your face, neck, décolleté and hands.
Fotona’s Starwalker Q-Switched laser technology in combination with a skilled approach and expertise provide the pathway to successfully achieving glowing, radiant and healthy-looking skin.
Precise, Gentle and Rapid Recovery
The Q-Switched laser, in the right hands, effectively targets a wide range of superficial and deep pigmented lesions. The system allows for very short pulses of light to pass harmlessly through the top layers of your skin and to be “selectively” absorbed by the pigment. Let’s get fancy: the Q-Switched laser generates nanosecond pulses (a nanosecond is one billionth of a second) and picosecond pulses (a picosencond is one trillionth of a second), which are efficient at removing pigment and gentle on your skin.
The StarWalker Q-Switched technology works through photoacoustic rather than photothermolytic effects. Essentially, rather than heat, the laser creates soundwaves which mechanically break up the brown and black pigment into tiny particles. The particles are then removed by your body’s own immune system as the skin’s macrophages clear the excess pigment from the treated area.
The StarWalker difference for a Youthful Appearance
There are multiple approaches available in the world of lasers to erase unwanted pigment but few can offer smooth, radiant and blemish-free skin with such a high safety profile and minimal downtime. Isn’t the best performance with the least social downtime ideal for you?
Treatments are fast, safe and comfortable. The versatility of the system allows us to adapt the energy and laser wavelengths to suit your specific skin type. It is essentially a wizard amongst lasers that can be highly customized to target your specific skin concerns and deliver remarkable outcomes. Your youthful glow and blemish-free skin awaits.

Regain a youthful complexion
You may notice signs of premature skin aging such as dull and uneven skin tone, rough skin, large pores and irregular pigmentation. Further, depending on the exposure you have has to environmental pollutants you may find that the glow or radiance you used to give off is reduced and you skin is not so soft to the touch. This is called accelerated aging and the number one cause is UV radiation from the sun.
A medical-grade chemical peel could be an option for you to invigorate your skin for a healthier, more vibrant complexion.
Safe and effective gentle exfoliation
Chemical peels are an accelerated form of exfoliation induced by a chemical agent. A chemical peel creates different types of changes in the skin depending on factors such as the type of chemical agent, the protocol used (i.e., the amount of time the agent is left on, the strength of the peel) as well as the post peel steps used to boost your results. Essentially, we would layer active ingredients over the chemical peel to enhance the benefits and amplify the cosmetic changes to your skin.
Multiple skin goals can be achieved
Chemical peels typically have different active ingredients and strengths to target several types of skin challenges. As with all aesthetic services, the most important consideration is the level of experience and skill of the person carrying out your treatment. Chemical peels improve epidermal stimulation, balance greasy/acne prone skin, revive dull complexions and lighten skin, improve melasma and other irregular pigment as well such as the pigment caused by post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
The great thing about peels is that they can be done in combination, on the same day, with other procedures such as Broad Band Light™ or Laser Genesis to give a boost to your overall facial rejuvenation.

Build your gluteus mucsles for more lifted and shapely buttocks
When you turn to look at your backside in the mirror do you wish your buttocks were more lifted? Fuller? More shapely? Instead of trying to find the right jeans that make your but look better, now you can make the jeans look better with your butt. How? With Emsculpt®.
EmSculpt® offers you the world’s first non-surgical buttock augmentation and lifting procedure. It strengthens, tones and firms your gluteus muscles without any effort on your part. As it involves no surgery, needles or injections you can be assured that there are zero risks as compared to going under the knife and potentially dealing with uneven buttocks, lumpy results or complications.
How your buttocks improve in shape, tone and fullness.
In a nutshell, Emsculpt® uses HIFEM® (High Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic) energy to cause intense contractions to your gluteus muscles. Unlike normal voluntary contractions, EmSculpt® generates a muscle response that doesn’t allow for a relaxation phase. These are called “supramaximal” contractions and you can’t even replicate these with squats or lunges. You essentially generate 20,000 forced muscle contractions in 30 minutes, constricting the muscles beyond any sort of physiological norm. Can you imagine doing 20,000 perfect squats that engage your muscles one hundred percent of the time without taking a break? It’s impossible to replicate.
When your gluteus muscles are exposed to these “forced” contractions the muscles responds with a deep remodeling of its inner structure. Specifically, there is growth of your existing muscle and creation of new muscle fibers. This translates into a risk-free solution for you to have a curvier, more shapely butt that defies gravity.
The first step
Are you ready to build and tone your gluteus muscles for a firmer and rounder butt?

See a younger you instantly
Are you noticing signs of aging that misrepresent your youthfulness ? You look in the mirror and use your fingers to slightly lift or pull your skin back and think to yourself “That’s all it would take to look like I used to”. You aren’t ready for surgery, nor do you need it, but want your appearance to tell a different story than it does now.
You can replenish what you’ve lost over time, or enhance your look, with dermal fillers. Fillers restore volume where you have lost it and counteract your skin’s aging process.
What you want is natural-looking results
Dermal filler treatment is what we call a “technique-sensitive” procedure. It is carried out by a person and therefore its success depends on skill and expertise. For you, Dr. Manish Khanna bridges science and artistry to personalize treatments to your facial features. A keen aesthetic eye will enhance the way you look, not change it. Dr. Khanna ensures that you achieve a more refreshed appearance while maintaining your true essence.
True rejuvenation is only achieved with an expert
Dermal filler is the second most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure after BOTOX® Cosmetic. Why is the satisfaction of treatments so variable? It’s who is behind your needle.
There are a number of factors that influence success. Knowledge of the facial anatomy and the intricate web of facial muscles, nerves, and blood vessels is not trivial. Without a comprehensive anatomical understanding, there are two risks you face: bad outcomes and complications. There’s no one better than a surgical dermatologist to trust with beautifying your face. Your beauty is priceless, there’s no gain in gambling.
Call 514-989-7328 to schedule a consultation which is your first step to a refreshed you.
It’s best you work out from an early age and develop a healthy lifestyle to have the best odds. It’s wise to eat well and feed your body intelligently so that your various systems and organs work optimally.
Your skin is no different.
As you largest organ, your skin serves various functions. The skin on your face is the most susceptible to accelerated aging because it is exposed to the harmful effects of the sun as well as other environmental stressors. Just compare the skin on your backside to the skin on your face.
The question is: would you like to win the “skin race” slow and steady or rush to turn back the hands of time when you are already noticing significant skin aging signs? Prevention and early correction are key.
Taking care of your skin earlier on is like going to the gym in your teens (and continuing!) as opposed to waiting until you are out of shape or have minimal strength, endurance or flexibility.
The very first signs of skin aging
Sun Spots/Irregular Pigment
Lifestyle and environmental factors can make you appear older than you are. Just 5-10 minutes of sun exposure a day can damage your skin. Be aware, irregular pigment means your skin cells are not functioning optimally.
You can lose radiance as early as your twenties because of the rate at which cells rejuvenate (turn over) slows down. That means you need help to retain that healthy glow.
Wrinkles & Fine Lines
The wrinkles you may notice the most, depending on how expressive you are, are probably around the eyes, the forehead of in between your eyebrows. If these “expression lines” are bothersome, there is a quick remedy.
Don’t regret not taking the first step
The reality is that the earlier you develop good skin habits and take steps to prevent premature skin aging and external aging, the more youthful your appearance will be.
Be smart about your skin, you’ll wear it for the rest of your life.
