Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that helps fight diseases and slows down the aging process. It can reduce stress placed on the liver from toxins and help combat oxidative stress. It helps brighten the skin, reduce inflammation, and helps the body break down and get rid of fat.


Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide is a coenzyme in the body crucial for a number of metabolic processes. It is a natural substance created by the body and is involved in the cycling and restoration of ATP which is crucial for energy requiring processes in the cells. Unfortunately, its production slows down as we age. This deficiency can lead to generalized fatigue, brain fog, impaired digestion, weight gain and aging of the skin. By increasing NAD levels in the body, aerobic activity, insulin sensitivity, energy levels may improve.


Methionine Inositol Choline consists of a combination of B essential vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 and B12) as well as other essential amino acids to stimulate metabolism and aid in the breakdown of fat deposits (lipotropic).

The World of Fillers

The World of Fillers

Fillers are comprised of hyaluronic acid, which restores volume and improves the overall texture of the skin. As we age, we lose fat in the face, the muscle wears down and even the bone structure changes. This all contributes to an ageing face. In our youth, the face is shaped like an upside-down egg, wider at the top and narrower at the bottom. As we age, this flip around. We become narrower up top having lost volume around the temples and wider at the bottom. This is because of the changes we mentioned above – loss of subcutaneous fat, muscle atrophy, and changes in bone structure.

When tackling volume loss, we start with the midface. It fills the cheeks, elevates the midface, and in doing so can improve the hollowing of the eyes and smooth the lines around the mouth. Filler can restore definition to the jawline. Not only can it plump the lips, but also restore its color and hydration too. Don’t forget the hands, always a dead giveaway of our age. The hands can also be filled, we use Restylane Lyft for this area. With the correct type of filler and amount used most won’t know what you’ve had done, just that you look rested, refreshed, youthful.

Prior to coming to the clinic there are a few things you should do to prepare. Avoid alcohol and Ibuprofen 48 hours prior to injection as this will minimize bruising. Of course, there still is a risk of bruising as we have hundreds of thousands of blood vessels in our face but taking this precaution will help. We locally anesthetize the area and in some, perform a nerve block. Other practices just use a topical anesthetic. We do not find this to be as effective. After your procedure you should avoid strenuous activity for a few days. Sleeping upright can help with swelling. Keeping hydrated and using a topical hyaluronic serum is great to support your treatment at home. By staying hydrated and using a good skin care regimen, we support and maintain our results following treatment.

We love Galderma’s Restylane line of fillers. Their line of fillers with XpresHAn technology integrates into the tissues and moves with the face keeping a natural look. We’ve included a list of Restylane’s line of filles and areas we like to use them:

Restylane Refyne – can be used anywhere on the face
Restylane Defyne – lower face such as nasal labial folds (laugh lines), chin
Restylane Contour – midface
Restylane Lyft – midface, temples, jawline, hands
Restylane – L – can be used anywhere on the face, lips
Restylane Kysse – lips, wrinkles around the mouth
