Founded on the principle that it is better to prevent illness and build health than treat disease that has already manifested, Vitamindrip® treatments deliver vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants directly to your body’s cells. When micro-nutrients are delivered intravenously (IV), higher more therapeutic levels are achieved compared to taking vitamins by mouth. For example, an antiviral effect of vitamin C has been demonstrated at a concentration of 10-15 mg/dL, a level achievable with IV therapy but NOT oral therapy as only so much can be absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract.
Vitamindrip® is scientifically formulated to be an effective adjuvant treatment of:
If you are over 60 years old, screening blood work may have to be completed before IV treatment. Anyone with heart disease, severe kidney disease or undergoing cancer treatment requires a physician assessment before Vitamindrip®. Please book a complimentary consult with Dr. Brenna Haverluck to determine if you are an ideal candidate for Vitamindrip® if any of the conditions listed above apply to you!
PDO thread lift is a newer technique for North Americans (but done in Europe for years) and is growing in popularity quickly! Dr Brenna Haverluck was one of the first in Manitoba to be trained in the procedure and feels it is the best non-surgical procedure for a sagging jaw line. Dr Brenna prefers MINT PDO threads as the 3D helical barbs and tensile strength provide the most dramatic lift.
As we age our skin loses elasticity and begins to sag. MINT PDO provides a revolutionary type of facial rejuvenation without surgery. Commonly known as the thread face lift, you can dramatically lift and reposition underlying tissues and smooth overlying skin.
Selective inflammatory response or collagen induction is the principle behind a lot of aesthetic procedures such as some laser treatments and microneedling. Our skin is good at repairing itself! After inserting MINT threads, the skin does just that as new collagen forms around the thread. The thread dissolves in 4-6 months but the skin structure created holds for another 12-15 months (unfortunately we continue to age everyday).
The mesh technique consists of creating a mesh under the skin with small threads (in the shape of a tic-tac-toe board). This mesh serves as a foundation for new collagen production making skin plumper and more elastic over the area the threads were placed. The mesh tightens skin naturally from within. Results appear naturally without any drastic change! This is a great option for scars and/or thin skin.
The longer barbed threads are utilized to lift and reposition tissue resulting in a Vshaped face, defined jaw line, lifted cheeks and lifted eyebrows. Over the next 4-6 weeks, the skin will grow new collagen around the thread. This will secure the lift when the thread is absorbed!
PDO (polydioxanone) absorbable threads have been used in surgical specialties for decades and are now utilized for skin lifting and tightening. MINT PDO threads are FDA approved.
The threads are injected under the skin with a needle, so there are no incisions or cutting. The procedure is preformed in the office with minimal pain and no down time.

One of Dr Haverlucks favourite treatments! If you have not tried Botox or Dysport, you should call today for a free consult and see if this injectable is right for you.
Botox or Dysport are the most popular cosmetic procedures, likely because it is quick, no down time and results are amazing. Botox and Dysport are purified proteins that relax muscles to reduce frown lines (the angry furrow), forehead wrinkles, and crows feet. As we age our skin loses elasticity, and the repeated contraction of facial muscles is what forms deep wrinkles. People who begin this treatment early enough slow the development of permanent lines.
The procedure takes 10-15 minutes. Injections are made with a very fine needle. A bruise or redness is possible, but most leave with no marks. You will start to see the effects of Botox or Dyport in 3-7 days after injection. It lasts 4-6 months, and lasts longer the more regularly you do the procedure. Botox has been around for a long time and we know it is safe.
One of our most popular injectables. Teoxane and Juvederm are safe and natural dermal fillers that restore volume and fullness to the face, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in our skin. Hyaluronic acid is what adds elasticity and volume to the skin and can absorb 1000x its weight in water. Unfortunately, we lose 1% of the hyaluronic acid in our skin per year beginning at age 20! Dermal filler is injected to smooth deep lines and add volume to cheeks, lips, under the eyes, lines around the mouth and almost any other area. Injections look completely natural and can last for 1-2 years!
Can resume normal activities after treatment. After treatment there may be mild bruising or swelling, a cold compress can help.
The use of blood concentrates is becoming more and more popular in medical aesthetics likely because it is 100% natural, free of additives and chemicals and packed with powerful cells for skin rejuvenation.
PRF stands for Platelet-Rich Fibrin, which is a concentrate of your own cells. PRF, also known as the Vampire Facelift, involves obtaining a blood sample and separating the PRF from other blood components. PRF contains platelets, white blood cells, and mesenchymal stem cells. These are growth factors involved in the healing cascade and can promote regeneration of skin.
PRF is the newest evolution of blood concentrate therapy and has many advantages over PRP (platelet-rich plasma). PRF releases growths factors more slowly than PRP, allowing the cells to stay active longer to rejuvenate skin for a longer period of time. PRF also has a higher concentration of active cells than PRP.
PRF can be injected into the skin - under eyes, forehead lines, crows feet, lip lines, laugh lines, cheeks, marionette lines.
PRF can be placed on the skin before and during a micro-needling treatment for an entire face rejuvenation.
PRF can also be injected into the scalp to stimulate hair growth if hair is thinning. Here are some hair facts for you:
