As Medical Director at Medicart Quebec, Dr. Élizabeth Morency specializes in aesthetic medicine and phlebology, and has over 25 years’ experience in the field.
Upon graduating from medical school, Dr. Morency’s interest in aesthetics led her to pursue further training in phlebology. She began practicing family medicine, while also making her first forays into phlebology. Technological advances prompted her to take an interest in various anti-wrinkle injection techniques. She attended the most widely acclaimed training courses in order to keep her practice up to date in these areas. As a complementary service, Dr. Morency and her team offer a variety of state-of-the-art medical-aesthetic treatments to meet the needs of her patients.
WHAT TECHNIQUES DO YOU RECOMMEND FOR PATIENTS WHO WANT TO SLIM DOWN THEIR FIGURE?
I would recommend CoolSculpting®, which utilizes cryolipolysis technology to rapidly absorb and freeze fatty tissue. This process entails killing fat storage cells. The purpose is to get rid of unsightly lumps around the belly, sides, back, thighs, arms and beneath the chin.
IF YOU HAD TO NAME ONE TREATMENT IN PARTICULAR THAT DESERVES MORE ATTENTION, WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
PRP (platelet-rich plasma), which stimulates the dermal stem cells that produce collagen and elastin. This treatment can rejuvenate and beautify the skin around the eyes, face, neck, neckline and hands, as well as treat certain imperfections. Plasma contains growth factors that promote the skin’s natural regeneration processes. A highly effective treatment that allows you to transform your body by using your own body!
