SKINLIFE: GALDERMA CANADA’S NO. 1 COSMETIC CLINIC – TEXTURE/TONE REJUVENATION VIA MESOTOX™
Since SKINLIFE’s first Canadian launch of Mesotox™ in 2015, the safe and minimally invasive treatment involving micro-injection technique has been highly sought after for patients with oily, red, acne-prone and/or loose and wrinkly skin. Mesotox™, a treatment trademarked by SKINLIFE, makes an unconventional use of Neuromodulators (such as BOTOX Cosmetic®/Dysport®/Xeomin®) for facial skin rejuvenation, beyond the customary intramuscular injection of Neuromodulators for dynamic wrinkle improvement and muscle size reduction. At SKINLIFE, a highly experienced injector performs the procedure to ensure appropriate injection depths and amounts per each area of injection, so that the treatment benefits can be maximized without the concerns of the “stiffness” of the muscle typically associated with intramuscular Neuromodulator injections. Mesotox™ treated many patients with concerns of excessive oil production, constantly recurring active acne, enlarged pores and rosacea. SKINLIFE also holds the status of being Galderma Canada’s Top Injector Champion in 2016, 2017, and 2018. SKINLIFE is the largest provider of Restylane® (injectable HA fillers), Dysport® (injectable botulinum toxin type A), and Sculptra® Aesthetic (injectable poly-L-lactic acid) among all practices throughout Canada for 3 consecutive years. For a single injector clinic like SKINLIFE, achieving the top volume status is a remarkable feat on its own merit. Medical research confirms that when doctors and institutions perform procedures more frequently, they do so with greater skill and improved safety. While the case volume is certainly not the only factor of consideration when selecting one’s cosmetic injector, SKINLIFE believes this may be an indicator of the level of skills, knowledge, and artistry behind each injection at our clinic. Our injection services are grounded firmly on in-depth anatomical knowledge and extensive clinical experience. We carefully select appropriate injection depth, location, delivery method, and dose.
WHAT IS MESOTOX™?
Mesotox™ is SKINLIFE’s trademarked therapy to target multiple, common chronic skin issues using precise micro-injections of reconstituted Botulinum Toxin Type A Neuromodulators (such as BOTOX Cosmetic®/Dysport®/Xeomin®) into the skin (the dermis). Mesotox™ is a suitable treatment option for skins of all ages and types, thanks to its minimal downtime and risks, as well as the ability to target multiple concerns at once: whether it is an oily, acne-prone and flushed appearance of the skin for young patients, or fine lines and dull skin tone/texture for more mature skins. For maximal treatment benefits for aged skin, Mesotox™ can be performed with SKINLIFE’s another trademarked procedure, Aqua Lifting™ to further enhance the skin’s moisture level and firmness.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- How many treatment sessions do I need?
Most patients see an improvement in the skin tone and texture, pore size and fine wrinkles upon recovery from the first treatment session. Additional treatments of a total of 3 to 5 sessions are recommended for the maximization and maintenance of long term results, the exact number of which varies depending on the intended goal of the treatment plan.
- What is the treatment interval?
Although the recommended interval varies depending on the condition(s) that the treatment is intended to treat as well as each patient’s skin condition, on average, the ideal treatment interval between each treatment is 8-12 weeks.
Topical anesthetic cream application is offered to minimize discomfort during treatment, making the process virtually painless. SKINLIFE also offers, if needed, the use of analgesic laughing gas for patients who desire additional relief.
- Is there any downtime following Mesotox™?
Skin in the injection sites will appear slightly raised and white for 1-2 hours. Minor bruising in some injection sites may be noted, which normally resolves within 5-7 days. Cosmetic concealer can be applied 2 hours after each treatment session. Regular facial cleansing routine may be resumed immediately.
