Did you know?

Dr. Nakatsui Double Diamond award recipient from AllerganDr. Nakatsui is one of a small number of solo physician injectors to have received Diamond and Double Diamond status from Allergan, the makers of Botox and Juvederm.

We are proud of having received this recognition but it is not essential to go to a Double Diamond provider to be certain you have an injector with expertise. When considering an injector, look for a practice that uses Botox and fillers every day. Ask about experience and training with Botox and fillers. Find out who your injector is–injectors are usually physicians, but can be nurses or pharmacists. At the Groot DermaSurgery Centre, Dr. Nakatsui personally performs all Botox and filler injections.

Be aware that Double Diamond status can be achieved by multi-physician groups and multi-location practices where Botox is distributed to multiple physicians and injectors. Therefore, not all Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, and Double Diamond providers actually use the same amount of Botox or fillers.

I, along with my associates, Dr. Linda L. Smith, Dr. Bruce Ramsey, and our staff, are deeply saddened by the passing of Dr. Don Groot, the founder of the Groot DermaSurgery Centre.  It gives us all great comfort to know that he passed away peacefully and surrounded by family.

He was a mentor, a colleague, a friend, and someone who knew no bounds. His warmth, spirit, and dedication to dermatology will remain with each and every one of us.

Please feel free to visit his obituary.

What is Brilliant Distinctions?


December 2nd, 2016 | General Info

brilliant distinctions edmontonBrilliant Distinctions is a program provided by Allergan, the company that produces Botox and Juvederm. This program allows patients to accumulate points from the use of Botox Cosmetic, Juvederm products, Belkyra, and Latisse.

 

Botox Cosmetic is used to treat wrinkles on the forehead, the angry lines between the eyebrows, the smile lines around the eyes, and other areas as well. Juvederm products can help bring back fullness to problem areas such as the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, cheeks, and lips that lose volume as we age or lose weight.

 

Belkyra is an exciting new treatment that can help reduce fat in the dreaded double chin zone and can help improve and contour your chin and jowl line. For longer and thicker eyelashes, Latisse can be used for lusher eyelashes.

 

Each of these treatments earn points that can be used towards the purchase of future Allergan products. For more information, please visit https://grootdermasurgery.com/brilliant-distinctions/ or http://www.brilliantdistinctions.ca
