Not all wrinkles are the same. They are often defined based on their location or shape.
Expression lines, found on the face, are caused by the repeated contraction of certain muscles due to frowning, creasing the forehead or squinting the eyes. These wrinkles become increasingly deep with age.
Other wrinkles, that are not expression lines, can also be found such as those around the mouth or neck. Although these wrinkles can deepen with age, they are often the result of sun exposure or poor skin care.

When it’s time to treat wrinkles, Clinique Jean Gilbert offers two solutions: new-generation fillers that are safe, natural, efficient and can last up to 2 years or the highly purified protein, commonly known as Botox.
Botox Cosmetic® injections
Botox Cosmetic®, or botulinum toxin, is a naturally purified substance. To erase expression lines, Botox Cosmetic® is injected into the muscle to prevent it from contracting. This softens wrinkles and prevents deeper wrinkles from forming. The most commonly treated expression lines are those between the eyebrows or on the forehead. The effects of Botox Cosmetic® are generally visible three to seven days following the treatment and can last from four to eight months. Treatment can be repeated as needed.
As we age, our skin changes. With time, the skin’s natural volume begins to diminish and wrinkles and lines start forming. However, with the help of Juvederm®’s replenishing dermal filler, you can fight back! Juvederm® is a “next-generation” dermal filler. The gel’s smooth consistency gives the skin back its smooth and natural look by filling in fine lines and wrinkles. Juvederm®’s natural-looking results last for up to nine months, and in some cases for more than a year.
This manufacturing process works to create a smooth consistency gel that flows into the skin providing a smooth, natural look and feel.
THE SOFT LIFT® APPROACH
The Soft Lift® is a combination of treatment between the Botox Cosmetic® and Juvederm® that your doctor adapt and measure accurately to target to the needs on the wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead that can give a false sense of fatigue or anger. The Soft Lift® approach is a smooth dermanl that fill in the wrinkles around the mouth and fills the loss of dermal volume of the cheeks, lips and jaw which is often associated with aging. When used together, the overall effect is balanced, subtle and quite natural.
The most common side effects of Botox Cosmetic® and Juvéderm® are brief and reversible, lasting no more than a few weeks.

You will receive a personalized consultation that will provide you with all of the details related to the most suitable treatment for you.

Combining comfort and safety, the laser creates a high-intensity beam of light that penetrates deep into the cutaneous tissue, where it delivers a controlled amount of therapeutic heat. The dual-wavelength laser combined with the cooling treatment provides optimal firming results while reducing side effects. What’s more, treatment can result in a much firmer, younger looking body.
The laser emits a light beam that penetrates the skin to reach the dermis. The absorbed laser light produces a progressive warming of the dermis and subcutaneous cellular tissues without affecting the skin located outside the treated areas. The rise in temperature causes the collagen fibres to retract and stimulates the cells responsible for synthesizing collagen and the elastic fibres of the skin, resulting in the manufacturing of new collagen and elastin.
As we age, our skin cell turnover slows down. Dead cells on the skin’s surface give the epidermis a rough appearance.
If you have fine lines, sun spots or pigmentation abnormalities, a vitamin exfoliation, also known as a facial peel, is recommended.
Facial peels are reserved for medical use. They are similar to exfoliation, which removes the tops layers of the epidermis to reveal the brighter and smoother skin underneath. A peel also improves radiance for skin that is oily, acne-prone or has dilated pores. Peels also erase sun spots and soften scars. Fine lines, superficial and deep wrinkles can also be treated with a peeling.
