Botox® Cosmetic

Botox® Cosmetic treatments have been used by medical doctors for various medical conditions for over twenty years. It is an increasingly popular option for reducing the appearance of wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes and neck bands. The Fredericton Wellness Clinic is proud to offer medical aesthetic services by Dr Renier Van Aardt, one of Canada's leading injectors of Botox and Juvederm.
During a treatment with Dr Van Aardt, tiny amounts of purified protein are injected into specific facial muscles responsible for the creation of facial lines and wrinkles. When the protein is injected into the muscles surrounding a particular area, those muscles can no longer contract. Basically, the protein blocks the signals that would normally tell your muscles to contract. So the wrinkles in that area often referred to as frown lines, temporarily go away.
The Botox® Cosmetic treatment starts to take effect within three to five days. It takes two weeks before you see the full effect and it could require more than one treatment before optimal results can be seen. Botox® Cosmetic therapy is temporary and therefore requires repeated treatments. In the beginning, benefits of treatment last for about 3 to 4 months. Repeat treatments will result in longer lasting effects of up to six months with improved smoothing of wrinkles.


Dermal fillers are the long lasting solution for correcting wrinkles and remodeling facial contours. They are used to add volume to the eyebrows, cheeks, naso-labial lines, chin and lips, and help smooth facial wrinkles and deeper creases. Dermal fillers have become one of the most popular treatments as patients love the soft and natural look, and the immediate results.
Juvéderm® Volift
Juvéderm® VOLIFT® with Lidocaine is the latest addition to the Juvéderm range of hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers now available in Canada. Designed for facial contouring and the treatment of deep skin depressions such as nasolabial folds, Juvéderm VOLIFT with Lidocaine provides a new treatment option estimated to deliver smooth, long-lasting results for up to 15 months.
Over time, the cheeks, chin and jawline area can be impacted by the natural ageing process: a loss of volume or definition, and the appearance of ‘static’ wrinkles such as deeper nasolabial folds are among the key ageing concerns. Juvéderm VOLIFT with Lidocaine is designed to smooth deep wrinkles for a refreshed look, as well as gently restoring natural-looking contours in the lower face.
This new addition to Allergan’s next-generation dermal filler range has been developed using VYCROSS™ technology, which uses an innovative combination of low and high molecular weight HA to improve the cross-linking efficiency of HA chains. This more effective cross-linking allows for a lower concentration of HA to be used, delivering an ultra-smooth gel for a natural look and feel, minimal swelling and bruising, as well as improved duration.
Juvéderm VOLIFT with Lidocaine provides a versatile treatment option for patients who are looking for a discreet, natural look with minimal swelling and long-lasting results,’ says Dr Mauricio De Maio, Consultant Plastic Surgeon.
The smooth and easy injection allows for excellent control when contouring the face, providing even distribution under the skin for a natural look and feel. The key barriers to a cosmetic injectable treatment is the fear of an unnatural look, therefore our priority with Volift is to offer innovative products which truly meet patients needs.

Juvederm® Volbella
Full lips with a defined border are a feature of youthful attractiveness. As we age, natural substances that once gave our skin structure and volume, such as collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, gradually decrease. This results in lips and the surrounding area being vulnerable to volume loss.
Juvéderm® Volbella treatments can be used to enhance lip shape and restore lost fullness. It is a new facial filler specifically designed for gently restoring natural-looking lip volume and defining lip contours. It results in less swelling and delivers a natural look and feel. The effect is instant and long lasting.
Juvéderm® Volbella is also the perfect solution for under eye circles and volume loss giving a beautiful smooth result without causing bumps or swelling like most other products do.
Volbella is the only facial filler clinically proven to last up to 12 months in the lips with a single treatment.* With the addition of lidocaine, a mild anaesthetic, you will also enjoy greater comfort during the treatment.
It is designed to produce less swelling compared to other lip fillers so lip enhancements will look natural, enabling most people to resume normal activities immediately.


Sculptra is a revolutionary new treatment in Cosmetic Dermatology. It represents a unique, non-invasive option that helps your facial skin naturally regain a more youthful and natural-looking appearance. Derived from Fruit acids, Sculptra is a biocompatible and biodegradable injectable material that naturally stimulates the body to produce its own collagen.
The result is a fuller, smoother, more youthful and natural-looking face with less pronounced lines, creases, wrinkles and folds. Results are long lasting. Typically three to four treatments will produce results that last two years and for some individuals even longer. Results are gradual, natural and progressive and may be complemented by Botox, photo rejuvenation therapy and appropriate skin care.

Thermage Skin Tightening

Thermage is a non-surgical method to tighten and smooth wrinkled and sagging skin. Thermage uses radio frequency to signal the deeper layers of the skin to produce new collagen, replacing old devitalized collagen fibers thereby increasing skin elasticity.
The skin attains a more youthful appearance while becoming firmer and tighter resulting in “a lifting of the skin”. The method produces no incisions and requires virtually no recovery time. The entire face, eyes, neck, upper arms, abdomen, love handles, thighs and buttocks can be treated.
The results are noticeable within two months after a single treatment with maximal effect one year after treatment. Maintenance is required every three years to maintain long term results.
With the new advanced treatment protocol, treatments have become quicker, less painful and more effective than before, with a treatment success rate in excess of 80%.
 Skin tightening should be a part of every Aesthetic patient’s protocol in order to prevent sagging skin and maintain good, elastic skin quality.
