Wipe the Signs of Aging Away
Make Wrinkles Fade and Disappear
As the clock ticks forward, each and every one of us gets a little bit older. Aging is an inevitable part of life, but for many of us, it can have some unexpected and undesirable consequences. When you look in the mirror, are you concerned about the wrinkles that seem to deepen with every passing day? They won't go away. If you ignore them they'll just get worse. Fortunately, we offer several safe and effective treatments — and we know they work because we've tested them out on ourselves!

Fine lines and wrinkles can develop on the face, neck, and décolletage, aging a person’s appearance. In some cases, the cause is sun damage, the passage of time, and behaviors such as smoking. Other wrinkles form dynamically: certain facial expressions or movements cause them to appear, and they become permanent over time. The loss of fat, bone mass and poor skin elasticity can also diminish youthfulness and vitality. Wrinkle treatment options with Heights Laser Centre can target each of these concerns for a rejuvenated and attractive outcome.
Botox® prevents dynamic wrinkles from forming by targeting the muscles that cause these signs of aging to appear. Vancouver patients commonly receive treatment for crow’s feet—clusters of wrinkles that develop around the eyes—and frown lines between the eyebrows.
Treatment with Botox® is a quick and simple process. After icing the area to desensitize the skin, Dr. Jaffer gently injects the solution using a very small needle. His conservative administration ensures that patients only receive as much Botox® as they require. The benefits of treatment typically last for three to four months, during which time patients can enjoy a younger appearance.
Dr. Jaffer often recommends wrinkle treatment with dermal fillers to smooth away lines and add fullness to features. High-quality products such as Juvéderm® and Belotero® utilize hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body and that promotes hydration and volumization of the skin.
During the treatment, Dr. Jaffer injects the dermal filler in a way that improves sunken features, lines, and wrinkles. Results are immediate and last for several months, with durations specific to each injectable product. Allergan®, the manufacturer of Juvéderm® and Botox®, has recognized Dr. Jaffer as one of its expert injectors; his ongoing professional development means that patients benefit from the most gentle and effective techniques.
eMatrix™ (Sublative Rejuvenation)
We offer a laser wrinkle treatment that can give you excellent results — without surgery. eMatrix™ uses radio frequency technology to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, to smoothen the complexion, and to firm up the skin. This technology is safe and effective for patients with all skin types. Typically, patients require three to five treatments to achieve their desired results.
IPL Photofacial Rejuvenation
A type of photofacial, IPL can erase fine lines and wrinkles as well as dark spots on the skin. It utilizes intense pulses of light that destroy areas of dark pigmentation. Heights Laser Centre has invested in a top-of-the-line laser that includes cooling technology to maximize comfort. This wrinkle treatment, conducted by one of our certified laser technicians, only takes twenty minutes to complete. Patients typically receive a series of photofacials approximately one month apart to achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
Chemical peels exfoliate the skin to allow new, smoother skin to surface. Heights Laser Centre uses glycolic peels in our medical spa, which promote the production of collagen for long-lasting skin health. Our patients usually see results after just one chemical peel, but we usually recommend a series of peels to reduce fine lines and wrinkles more completely.
Supporting Wrinkle Treatment with Daily Skincare
Proper skincare can prevent wrinkles from re-forming, extending the life of your procedure. As a practitioner with years of experience in aesthetic treatment, Dr. Jaffer has expert knowledge in this area. He typically recommends a daily regimen that includes:
- Sunscreen (rain or shine).
- Omega 3 oils taken orally.
- Topical Vitamin A (retinol).
- Topical Vitamin C serum (ascorbic acid).
- Anti-aging products with growth factors to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
By following this plan, you can expect more youthful and radiant skin, and you should be able to enjoy the benefits of your aesthetic treatment for longer.
