Aesthetic Medicine

Mission and Vision

My very first patient was one of the best teachers I had throughout my Medical School training. She had a rare form of muscular dystrophy that had taken her from functionally normal in her 20’s to wheelchair-bound and unable to utilize her deformed facial muscles for longer than a couple of hours at a time in her 30’s. She taught me that I can’t diagnose my patients’ problems solely by what I see with my eyes. In fact, even though she was one of the most “disabled” people that I had met at that early stage of my career, she was far and away one of the most happy and fulfilled.

The ratios, rules and aesthetic ideals are not the indication to treat for those of us healthcare professionals who really understand what my first patient taught me all those years ago.

My patient did not meet the beauty ideals in the textbooks… yet there’s nothing I could have done to improve her health with cosmetic procedures.

And if there’s nothing I could have done in that domain for this badass wheelchair-bound woman despite her droopy, weak facial musculature, then it cannot be merely what we see that is the guiding light for healthcare professionals in Aesthetics Medicine.

People sometimes think when they hear I’m in Aesthetic Medicine that I am quietly judging their appearance. Truth is, lines, wrinkles, scars and the ‘wrong’ proportions don’t interest me much until there’s conflict in the person beneath it all.

It’s that conflict I treat. My work, when done properly, frees my patients from concern, allows them to tackle life on the front foot, and may make a few of them feel a little badass from time to time. That’s the purpose of my work.

There’s no greater satisfaction than seeing someone resolve the conflict in their own story, and that’s what I believe my job is. I’m not that interested in beauty – it’s really just a tool to change our stories. ♥️

Frequently Asked Questions

Sometimes when we mention injectables, patients can get confused about what that means. Injectables can be broken down into dermal fillers and neuromodulators. Dr. Dallas carries various injectables to help her patients erase wrinkles and restore areas that have lost volume over time. Dermal Fillers- as their name implies, dermal fillers “fill” an area with volume loss due to decreasing collagen, bone &/or fat and slackening of the skin which is a normal part of the ageing process.

Dermal fillers can be classified as either natural or synthetic. Natural fillers are made from hyaluronic acid. This is a naturally occurring substance in the body that is responsible for hydrating and plumping the skin. It does this by binding with nearby water molecules. Most of Dr. Dallas’ dermal filler products are made out of this hyaluronic acid.

Neuromodulators – these are products such as Botox, Dysport & Nuceiva. Unlike dermal fillers, neuromodulators don’t erase wrinkles from beneath. Instead, they address dynamic wrinkles. These are the wrinkles that form as the result of a muscle contraction underneath the skin. These wrinkles form when we make an expression such a smiling, frowning, squinting, and others. Muscles contract with these expressions, and as we age, deep wrinkles can form on the skin’s surface above the muscle.

If you have any additional questions, please contact the Dr. Dallas Consulting Team – we look forward to hearing from you ♥️
Neuromodulators (also known as Botox, Dysport, Xemomin etc) are injectable drugs that causes temporary muscle weakness. Neuromodulators block the nerve signals that causes muscles to contract, thereby smoothing the lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive facial movements.

Areas of treatment:

Forehead Wrinkles- The development of forehead wrinkles – the horizontal creases that move with your expressions – are considered one of the first signs of aging.

Sagging Brows- Neuromodulators relax the muscles that pull the eyebrow down.

Frown Lines- The lines on your forehead between the eyebrows that appear when your frown or furrow your brow which can make you seem tired, angry or upset.

Crows Feet- you may not be amused by the lines that extend around the corners of your eyes when you smile or laugh. Neuromodulator injections are often used to treat these lines, creating a more youthful appearance.

Bunny Lines- These lines are on either side of your nose.

Lip Lines-Lip lines appear when you purse your lips and fan out into the surrounding skin.

Marrionette Lines- marionette lines extend from the corners of the mouth down towards the jaw. Small amounts of neuromodulator can help correct these areas.

Chin dimpling- chin dimpling, also known as the “orange peel” appearance on the chin, occurs when we relax and contract the mentalis muscle.

Neck bands or cords- you may start to notice bands or cords showing in your neck as you age. This occurs when the platysma muscles start to sag. Injecting neuromodulators into these muscles causes them to relax. This technique can also relax the muscles of the jawline, creating a neck lift.
Hyperhidrosis – excessive sweating (commonly affecting underarms, forehead, palms/soles, groin)

Jaw Clenching – which can result in poor sleep, bad head or neck pain – not to mention tooth damage!

Migraines – enough said!

**Note that many private medical insurance policies will cover the cost of “therapeutic botox”; it is worth a call to inquire.

If you have any questions about what these treatments can do for you, please ask Dr. Dallas! ♥️
Although Dermal fillers are all made of Hyaluronic Acid, they differ in structure, longevity and have varying degrees of softness. Softer fillers are used in the lips, for example, while sturdier fillers might be desired to enhance cheekbones or jawline.

Dr. Dallas carries many different filler options and will help you decide on the ideal dermal filler to suit your individualized needs.

People often say “beauty is pain”- but this doesn’t have to be true! Fear of pain, and specifically fear of needles, is often cited as the number one reason people choose not to get botox, fillers, or other aesthetic procedures.

First and foremost, your comfort is Dr. Dallas’ priority! The med-spas are designed to be relaxing and comforting environments to help ease any anxiety you may have when it comes to aesthetic procedures.

When it comes to injectables, Dr. Dallas takes all the extra steps to minimize any fears of potential pain with the treatment.

Prior to injection she ensures you understand the step-by-step process of each treatment during your consultation.

In addition to alleviating your fear before your procedure, she has a number of ways to ease anxiety and pain during these procedures:

* Prescription topical anaesthetic cream- Dr. Dallas can apply an anaesthetic cream to the face prior to injections. This essentially numbs the skin, making you much more comfortable during the procedure.

* Vibratory Anesthesia- a vibrational tool can be used during injection to distract you and reduce pain sensation.

* Ice- can be applied prior to, and after, injections.

* Lavender – inhaled relaxing scents can help you relax during the procedure.

* Lidocaine in filler- the majority of dermal fillers have lidocaine mixed into the product.

* Technique- Dr. Dallas ensures gentle injection technique with all of her patients.

This is one of the most common questions we are asked by our clients!

The simple answer is yes! The main reason men come in for treatment is to look younger. But enhancing masculinity for our male patients also gives them a sense of strength & empowerment to put their best face forward.

Most of all, we want ensure to all of our male patients that they will look completely natural. The most common concern we hear is that male patients do not want others to know they have received cosmetic treatment. In our line of work it is all about educating our patients on how we can achieve the desired masculine appearance, while working with you to create the perfect natural result.

Dr. Dallas understands the important differences between the musculature, physiology and treatment plans between each gender.

For women, we predominately want to focus on softening and feminizing the facial structure. We lift and shape the face to create longer lines and round edges.

For males, we focus on creating strong square features for more masculine contours and proportion. Creating these sharp edges and bold features in the male face allows for notable, but not overly noticeable results.

Most of our male patients like to use botox to lift their brows and enhance the eye shape. They also commonly receive jawline or chin dermal filler to enhance squaring off the profile while lifting the neck.

If you have any questions about male treatments feel free to connect with Dr. Dallas here! ♥️
