Dr Garant uses a technic that prevents the formation of deep wrinkles without freezing your features or give your face a stiff plastic look.
The fillers are beneficial substances used for:
- Correction of superficial and deep wrinkles;
- Hydrate or redefine the lips;
- Restore volume;
- Reshape the contours of the face (cheekbone, cheek, chin, nose)
These agents are classified according to their durability as temporary, semi-permanent or permanent. Temporary fillers are more often used because they have fewer side effects and are reversible. These agents are made of hyaluronic acid, an agent that is also a substance naturally found in the skin.
The filler injections take about 30 to 45 minutes. If the patient wishes, a mild local anaesthetic can be administered to numb the treated area. The main side effects are minor, temporary and limited to the injection sites: slight redness, slight swelling, local sensitivity and bruising. These effects disappear in the days following the injection. Rarely, however, serious vascular risks may occur, which is why it is important that the injections be done by a physician directly.
As with the BOTULIC PROTEIN treatment, filler injections reduce or eliminate wrinkles for several months. Instead of relaxing the facial muscles, fillers are substances that are injected into the furrows to make them disappear. Fillers are used for wrinkles around the mouth, for lip definition and volume, and for undesirable non-dynamic wrinkles. It is also used to provide structure and volume to the cheeks and face.
Hyaluronic acid keeps the skin firm and elastic. As the skin ages, it loses its own hyaluronic acid, which forms wrinkles. The injection of these fillers into the skin replaces the hyaluronic acid and safely restores volume to the skin.
In most cases, the injection of fillers must be repeated at intervals of 9-36 months to maintain the desired effect. The injection of fillers is absorbed over time and the effect gradually resume its appearance it had before the treatment.
” SOFT LIFT “
The “Soft Lift” technique uses BOTULIC PROTEIN in combination with dermal fillers to give a quick and radiant result. With age, the skin of the face goes through the three “D” phases of aging:
- Deterioration: change skin texture and wrinkles appear
- Descent: the skin slackens
- Decrease the volume level: skin loses its density
“Soft Lift” targets the signs of aging skin by combining a facial filler with BOTULIC PROTEIN. The result is a smooth, natural-looking refreshment of the entire face.
With the “Soft Lift” approach, Dr. Dorothée Garant uses BOTULIC PROTEIN to treat wrinkles on the upper face and dermal fillers to target the middle and lower face. With “Soft Lift”, it is possible to achieve a refreshed and relaxed appearance.

The treatment of varicose veins is called sclerotherapy injections. This treatment is covered by most medical insurance plans.
The goal is to completely eliminate small and medium-sized varicose veins. This method consists of injecting with a fine needle, a sclerosing liquid substance, causing inflammation, fibrosis and hardening of the vein. This leads to obstruction of the varicose vein, drying them out which then makes them disappear. Sclerotic veins subside and, in most cases, without a trace. The blood then flows back to other non-varicoses veins.
Sclerotherapy is a non-invasive method that can be performed in a physician’s office only. In the vast majority of situations, it does not cause any side effects. The patient may resume normal activity immediately. However, sun exposure should be avoided for 2 weeks following the treatment.

The processing is similar to that scarring agents fillers.
This treatment also uses fillers such as hyaluronic acid. It is a naturally occurring substance in the skin which promotes hydration and tissue volume.
The use of bulking agents helps restore a normal appearance to the skin, in which case the shape has been altered due to a scar or deformity of the bone that supports it. The filling is also used to correct facial asymmetries which are present naturally or that have risen as a result of an accident.

Hyperhidrosis (HH) is a medical term meaning excessive sweating. It is treatable by injection of botulinum protein type A. This medication is covered by the Health Insurance Plan of Quebec (RAMQ). However, the doctor’s fees are paid by the patient.
Hyperhidrosis can be annoying and sometimes debilitating. It can devastate the social and professional life of an individual. There is very little literature on this subject and this is the reason why this problem often goes untreated and is not always considered to be a health condition.
Hyperhidrosis can definitely affect a person’s quality of life. Fortunately, modern medical knowledge about this problem now provides the means to fix it.
Recently, hyperhidrosis has become better known among health professionals as well as the public, thanks to the discovery of botulinum toxin (Botox) and its effectiveness in managing this condition. The treatment consists of a series of small injections in the armpit area near the sweat glands. This treatment takes about thirty minutes.
Botulinum protein blocks the activity of the gland muscles that cause excessive sweating and reduces or completely stops it. The action of the botulinum protein on the gland muscles lasts for approximately 12 to 24 months. The response may vary from one individual to another.

While some are concerned about brown spots or freckles and others struggle against acne, small fold of skin that doctors call skin tags, is a major source of embarrassment for many people.

With all eyes constantly on the latest beauty discoveries, Dr Garant suggests skinbooster injections with the Magic Needle. Pivoting on itself from a single entry point, this new flexible needle amplifies the hyaluronic acid used to rehydrate the entire face and stimulate fibroblasts. No volumizing effect, but a tremendous impact on the smoothing lines and toning the facial tissue. It takes three sessions to see the skin change. Combined with three sessions of CO2 laser, the overall result leads to complete skin rejuvenation.

Dr Dorothée Garant can refresh the look of your lips with dermal filler: “The goal of this treatment is not to cause a bulging effect as if inflated using a bicycle pump. These flexible and micronized hyaluronic acids follow and respect the morphology of the lips and restore water balance for optimal hydration lasting several months. “
