As true experts in facial injectables, our injectors are on the cutting edge of non-surgical facial procedures. Our extensive knowledge and exceptional results have earned his clinic a reputation as one of Toronto's premier destinations for facial fillers, such as Botox, Juvederm, Radiesse and others.
With any injection procedure the goal is to help patients look like a healthier more refreshed version of themselves. The goal is not to create a plastic looking face or puffy, unnatural lips but to subtly add volume and shape and accentuate each patient's best features and give them a rejuvenated appearance.
Toronto facial filler and injectable specialists, Dr. Ada Shim and Dr. Alexander, take a unique approach to giving patients the results they seek. With extensive training and years of experience in the application of facial fillers. They view each filler or injectable product they use as a tool to address a specific area of the face. Whether they choose to use Botox®, Restylane, Juvederm or another injectable product, every drop is applied with an exact goal in mind and an appreciation for subtle, natural looking results. One of our main principles is that “When it comes to fillers, a little can go a long way.” It takes a conservative and exacting approach to ensure that results are never overdone.

What sets us apart is that our injectors are some of the best trained and dedicated practioners in Canada. With an exclusive focus on facial procedures, Dr. Ashlin Alexander and Ada Shim have been called upon to train other physicians and nurses from across the country to teach them safe and effective techniques. They both have years of experience and understand that creating a beautiful and balanced result without looking over-done is critical to you.
Our staff at FACE Toronto serve as:
Ashlin Alexander and Ada Shim believe firmly in taking a global approach to enhancement of the face. Just what does this mean? Most often individuals tend to lock their focus on one feature that bothers them or that they would like to change. Rather than fixate on just that one thing, we always start out by helping the patient to step back and view their face as a whole. “It is important to look at the overall balance of the face. When you get to the bottom of it, our goal is never to fill a single line or shadow or fix one crease. The purpose is to look and feel better about ourselves.” With this philosophy in mind, at FACE Toronto we work with each patient to help them achieve a balanced and natural overall appearance. As he stresses, “It starts with an in-depth understanding of the right application for each filler product.” Beyond that, he stresses that the clinician applying the filler needs to have a good understanding of how to bring about a balanced and harmonious appearance to the face. "That’s how truly excellent results are obtained."
Dr. Asaria and Dr. Alexander personally administer all fillers and injectables in our practice. With our extensive expertise in the area of facial fillers, we do more than simply alleviate wrinkles. Using products that truly fit your needs, we can accent the cheekbones, smooth out the jawline, accentuate the lips, soften hollows in the cheeks and refresh the eyes at will. Most importantly, anything we do is done in a manner that contributes to overall balance and beauty of the face.

An injectable treatment with Ada Shim or Ashlin Alexander begins with a private consultation. Patients who come to us benefit from the expert input of an experienced specialist. As part of the consultation process, we take the time to educate each patient. “Through advertisements and pop culture, patients have been misinformed on the topic of facial fillers.” says Dr. Asaria. “Some of the products out there have almost become household names and so we tend to think of them as something we can just order off a menu,” but, as Dr. Asaria points out, “Just as an artist selects his tools, it is the job of an experienced cosmetic expert to select the product or products that are going to accomplish the results the patient desires and in a manner that looks natural and balanced.”
With this approach in mind, we begin the consultation process by putting aside product names and shifting the focus to you and your needs. Once we fully understand the aspects and features you most want to address, we can then prescribe the proper treatment to accomplish subtle, refined results. In some cases Ada Shim or Ashlin Alexander may even inform a patient that they simply do not need any injection or fillers, in order to help them avoid bringing about an unnatural or imbalanced appearance.
Using small quantities of one or more filler, we work with each patient to bring out about a restored appearance that is natural to their face. Our approach includes the selection of different fillers to address specific areas of the face including:
