I had a exceptionally deep crows feet and some lines in my brow. I was referred to the Toronto Cosmetic Surgery Institute by a family member.
I went in for the first time May 13 2014, I was very nervous. Once I arrived the staff went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. The nurse Kim who did my procedure explained everything in detail. She was very gentle and made sure I was aware of... more
I saw dr. Barankin for Botox originally as I was quite nervous to do any cosmetic treatments after bad experiences at other clinics. Dr. Barankin was confident and highly knowledgeable, and came recommended to me by a few different people including my GP. Dr. Barankin was very gentle, and after 2 weeks, the results were nothing short of wonderful ; I have had several compliments already. I... more
With the pressure of looking ever so young now a days, gets harder as the years go by. Botox was the best thing I started. Results were evident after 2 days, procedure was painless, will keep it up as long as I can!
Injections were carefully considered by Dr. according to my frowns and smiles. Needles were painless, felt them but didn't think they were very painful at all. Recovery is simple -... more
So, I've always wondered - what would it be like. In a weak moment I paid $560 and got it done on my forehead. Now I finally get it. It doesn't really change anything - it freezes the forehead from moving - why did this not resonate before? So, if I try to remember to not wrinkle my forehead and keep my muscles there lifted - ITS THE SAME THING. Plus, it's obvious no matter what. I didn't... more
I was originally introduced to Dr. Asaria through my head and neck doctor, due to what appeared to be a 'growth' in the jaw area. I underwent a battery of tests, including MRI, and determined it wasn't a tumour; the other suspicion was that it was an enlarged masseter (jaw) muscle, on only one side of my face. I had done some research and discovered that Botox can be an effective way to... more
I felt compelled to write this review because when I was searching for referrals online in the GTA I could not find them! All I could find were Botox gone bad stories which fed into my fears for the past 3 yrs! I finally decided to take the plunge and go to the Maclean Clinic because it was local.
About me- 43 , starting to show definite signs of aging after repeated sun exposure, smoking,... more
I got my botox done two weeks ago and i am regretting every bit of it.
The nurse said she is going to left some drooping on my jaw by putting some injection on two side of my jawline and also she said she can smooth the lines on two sides of my nose (bunny line) She put 2 units on each side of my nose and also 3 units on each side of my jaw line for jaw drooping. One side... more
The most important pro to receiving botox injections to the face with Dr. Martie Gidon is that you are patient and client. Receiving both medical and cosmetic care are very important factors for me: especially since, I am an individual who lives on a modest income due to fibromyalgia. In other words, to correct or to live with injections which did not turn out right would be a nightmarish on... more
I have been having Botox injections for at least 5 years. My children had asked me why I always looked angry and had lines in between my eyes. I didn’t realize then that I was usually frowning, even if I wasn’t angry. My friend had had Botox for her frown lines with Dr. Gidon and was so happy with the results. I was surprised because she looked so natural I never realized that she had had... more
I drove to Toronto Ontario just to receive Botox! Let me tell you it was totally worth the drive!!!!
My doctor gave me the exact look I was going for, not overdone but natural and perfect! I have already sent several of my friends and family members to Dr Jugenburg and everyone has been totally thrilled with their results!
Thank you for the great experience!!!! more
I recently went to see Dr Freiman after people at work kept asking if I was feeling "tired" or "stressed". I took this as a sign to rejuvenate my skin. Dr. Freiman went over a skin care regime that was in my budget.
Admittingly, I underwent Botox - which I never imagine myself doing. But I love my new refreshed look - nothing overdone. This new office is also welcoming... more
I've always suffered from droopy eyebrows and to combat the issue I'd constantly hold the inside of my brows up. I liked the way it made my face look. My eyes appeared brighter and my face actually looked quite a bit slimmer when doing the expression. Unfortunately constantly animating your face can give you quite the headache, so after a few months of contemplating I'd decided to... more
The first Dr, I went to I am sure watered down the Botox or used less than what he said he used. It only lasted about ten days, did touch up and that lasted two weeks. Obviously I was done with that guy. I get it done now by someone that does it day in and day out at the plastic surgeon's office. She is good, knows her stuff, I get the lines across done, eyes and corners of my mouth done.... more
I had Botox two weeks ago in my frown lines and forehead, I'm 26 but I had bad premature ageing in this area so decided to give Botox a try.
I had 39 units, 25 in my frown lines and 14 in my forehead, the procedure took minutes and the pain was minimal. I had swelling around the injection sites for 5 minutes, it was totally gone by the time I left the clinic.
I did get some... more

I've always had what I guess people have described as a bit of a baby face. It is not uncommon for people I meet to tell me I have nice skin. However one day when I was talking on the phone and laughing with a friend I went into the bathroom and caught myself laughing in the mirror and noticed some wrinkles around my eyes when I smiled and even forehead lines. Of course, being male and... more
Got 52 units at $12.50 per. Not the cheapest but administered by a Doctor. It being my first time, I thought it would be better than going to a hairdresser to get it done ( funny how some people trust their esthetician because it's half the price). I felt nothing more than a prick. Went to work an hour later. Nobody noticed a thing. Waited patiently and started to feel the effects in 3 days. I... more
