If you are afraid of duck-bill lips, fear no more, Dr. Tkatch has an artist’s eye for lips done just right.

What can I expect during my lip treatment at MD Wellness Solutions?

Great lips take time to sculpt, and Dr. Tkatch and her aesthetic nurse specialists usually spend at least 15-30 minutes creating your perfect pair. Your treatment will start with a generous application of numbing ointment to keep you comfortable. Lips have a very high concentration of sensory nerves, which means lip treatments can be painful. Your comfort is a very high priority for us, so we offer each guest the opportunity to use nitrous oxide (laughing gas) for their lip filler treatments. Nitrous oxide is a very safe inhaled analgesic commonly used in labour and delivery and ER settings to relieve discomfort. It wears off very quickly after treatment, so you can drive yourself home safely. Lip filler treatments are also at higher risk for vascular compromise. Your safety is our top concern, which is why we offer ultrasound evaluation of the vascular supply of the lips to ensure that your lip filler treatment is safe.  Comfort, safety and beautiful, sexy lips, who could ask for anything more?

What fillers might be used to augment the lips?

Lip-specific fillers are chosen to tailor your lip treatment to your age and desired appearance. Our team works with Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero, and Revanesse lip filler products to ensure a great product selection for lips of all ages.

Can lipstick lines be treated at MD Wellness Solutions as well?

Lipstick lines or “smokers’ lines” can appear on anyone’s face, smoker or not. After treating the lip base, our injectors will soften each line individually with meticulous attention to detail. You may be asked to return to complete your lip treatment over two sessions to minimize swelling and ensure your lips look absolutely natural and fit your face. Additional treatment options for Lipstick lines include laser treatments. The combination of fillers and lasers to treat lipstick lines gives optimal results with minimal downtime.
