Physician Cosmetic Injector

Dr. John Ballantyne combines his Aesthetic Medicine training with his experience as an Emergency Room and Interventional Pain Management Physician to underpin his "safety first" approach to treatments.  As a personable and relatable medical doctor, John's clients love his passion and attention to detail, and ElevateRx is happy to have him as part of the team!


Prior to enrolling in medical school, Dr. Ballantyne's plan was to become an architect - he has always had a keen eye for symmetry and balance - which translates into his love of architecture and structural beauty.  Dr. B brings this love into his cosmetic practice, where he works closely with his clients to develop a treatment plan to meet their unique goals.

Dr. Ballantyne is licensed by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario and the College of Family Physicians of Canada.
