Simply You Esthetics: Toronto Cosmetic Nurse Injector

This week I got to head into Handan Erol’s Toronto Spa for some self-care and pampering…for my husband. Although I was originally going to self-care the shit out of myself I realized that my husband would benefit way more from her treatment. Ain’t nothing wrong with a man who wants to look good.

Thankfully when I suggested it he was more than willing we went in with an open mind. Handan, our cosmetic nurse injector, was so forthcoming with her knowledge and the whole experience was wonderful.

Dysport for the Win

After mapping out hubby’s face, figuring out his dynamic and static lines, and voicing her concerns and suggestions we had a plan. Since hubby has hooded eyes she would make sure she didn’t make him too heavy. It does take 2 weeks to get peak results so I will update the post once I have his before and afters side by side. That being said the actual procedure was fast and not painful at all. All signs that he had had a toxin injected were gone within 30 minutes so we were able to head out for lunch after. We had a great aftercare plan and the instructions and procedures were explained very well.

Reasons to Visit a Cosmetic Nurse Injector

There are many reasons to visit a nurse practitioner but I think most of us can attest that as we age our skin is not as elastic and firm as it once was. Those wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin creep on us just like the number of candles on the cake. We want to look our best because looking our best also makes us feel our best. Maybe we want to look younger in a work field that is highly competitive and values young, fresh ideas. Mostly though I think we’re all young at heart and want to have our outsides match our insides.

What is Popular in Injectables?

Although lip fillers are certainly still very hot there is a renewed emphasis on facial symmetry now. People are reshaping their faces easily to achieve desirable results thanks to the steady hands of nurse injectors, like Handan, who shape, contour, and define to make our dreams a reality.

What are Dermal Filler Treatments Used For?

Injectable fillers are soft tissue fillers injected into the skin at different depths to provide facial volume, augment facial features, and restore lost volume caused by aging plump-up cheeks/lips. When the correct amount of filler is placed into the correct place, it can provide a very natural and subtle result. Fillers can last up to 18 months and less will be needed over time. Fillers can be injected into cheeks, lips, chin, marionette lines, jawline, temples, under eyes and hands. 


What is Botulinum Toxin Used For?

Botulinum toxins are neurotoxins that cause a temporary weakening of the muscles and decrease/improve fine lines and wrinkles.  There are four brands of neurotoxins; Botox, Xeomin, Dysport and Nuceiva. They all essentially do the same thing. Dosing can be a little different for each brand. 

Botox can be used for horizontal forehead lines, 11s (lines between eyebrows), crows feet, bunny lines, chin dimpling, lip flip and masseter muscle to give a slimming effect of the face or prevent teeth clenching. 

Botox works best for dynamic lines. These are lines and wrinkles that show only when we smile or move our muscles. When we relax the muscle, those lines do not show with facial expressions. However, static lines, which are lines that show even at rest, can be harder to treat with botox. It can reduce the appearance of the line but will not get rid of it completely. Botox is therefore used mostly for the prevention of deep lines and wrinkles. 

Botox lasts for an average of 3 months. After that, our muscles start to regain their function and botox treatment will need to be repeated.

Botox can be used for excessive sweating as well by blocking the sweat glands. A higher number of units are used for sweating. Therefore, results last up to 6 months. 

Does Handan Do Botox Lip Flips?

Yes, she does! Let’s say your lips are already pretty voluminous but not the shape you want, a lip flip may be for you. If you’re looking to book a lip flip, book a botox appointment with Handan.


Can Injectables be Used to Stop Sweating?

Yes, Handan uses toxins to help those who have excessive sweating. She provides numbing cream to make the treatment as easy as possible.


What is PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Used For?

PRP is a procedure where we take the client’s blood and spin it in a centrifuge to obtain platelet-rich plasma. The platelets and growth factors in the plasma play an important role in healing. When PRP is injected into the scalp for hair restoration, it prevents hair loss, makes existing hair stronger and can promote new hair growth. When PRP is injected under the eyes, it can correct dark circles and decrease puffiness.

PRP can also be paired with micro-needling treatments to improve acne scarring, decrease pore size, and improve the overall texture of the skin and hyperpigmentation. At least three sessions are recommended for optimal results. 


What is Microneedling Used For?

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that is used to encourage collagen production using small, sterilized needles. The purpose of this treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue to smooth, firm, and tone skin. Microneedling is used to reduce the appearance of acne scars, enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation and fine lines/wrinkles. Microneedling can also be used to improve stretch marks and surgical scars. Minimum 3 sessions, one month apart are recommended for optimal results.
