  • Fillers (Juvederm, Restylane)

      -------------------------------

      Hyaluronic acid is a hydrating substance which is found naturally in our skin. As we age, our skin sustains damage from sunlight and other environmental factors. The amount of hyaluronic acid decreases causing loss of facial volume and structure, and formation of lines and wrinkles.

Juvederm and Restylane are physician administered hyaluronic acid fillers which may be used to immediately improve lines and wrinkles and restore facial volume. Commonly treated problem areas include smile lines(nasolabial folds), marionette lines, lips, vertical lip lines and tear troughs(sunken eyes).

The use of dermal fillers is a safe, effective and quick way to achieve a smooth, natural, rejuvenated appearance.

 

  • Botox

     ------------

     Botox helps to diminish frown lines, forehead lines and crow's feet. These lines often cause us to look tired, aged or unhappy. Their treatment with Botox results in a more youthful, refreshed appearance.


  • Laser hair removal

--------------------------------

     Laser Hair Removal is a safe and effective way to achieve permanent reduction in hair growth. A focused beam of light is used to penetrate the epidermis of the skin and target the underlying hair. The hair's pigment absorbs the light and further growth is hindered, without any harm to the surrounding skin.

    We use lasers which are safe for all skin types and perform treatments in a variety of areas including face,bikini area, underarms, arms, legs, back, chest, nipples and stomach.

     Laser Hair Removal is also the most effective way to eliminate ingrown hairs.

  • Laser vein therapy

 -----------------------------------

    Using a focused beam of laser energy, the pigment within the blood cells in the veins to be treated, is targeted. Without disrupting the skin's surface the heat generated from the laser coagulates the blood inside the vessel, causing it to collapse and seal. Over the next few weeks the vessel will disappear and the body's scavenging cells remove the blood, leaving your skin smooth and vein free.

    if you would like to find out whether you are a good candidate for laser vein removal, please call and schedule a consultation.


  • LimeLight (Intense Pulsed Light )

  -------------------------------------------------------------------

     Limelight is a non-invasive approach to treating benign, pigmented and vascular lesions. Problems addressed by Limelight include age spots, sun-induced freckles, sun spots and diffuse redness. Areas often treated include face, chest, backs of hands and arms.

3 to 4 treatments are usually recommended for optimal results. 

        

  • Titan

  -----------------

    Titan uses infrared light energy to stimulate new collagen growth deep beneath the skin's surface. During the procedure, the skin's surface is protected through continuous cooling with the Titan handpiece.

   During the weeks and months following the procedure, new collagen growth results in tightening of the skin, with improvement of lax skin, folds and lines. Patients of any skin type can be treated. Areas commonly treated include under the chin, jawline, abdomen and upper arm.


  • E-Matrix Sublative Skin Rejuvenation

   ---------------------------------------------------

    This state-of-the-art technology utilizes fractional bi-polar frequency to achieve laser skin resurfacing results which previously could only be achieved with more aggressive treatments. E-Matrix is a no to minimal downtime procedure.

     Collagen production is stimulated and skin cells are renewed, hence improving the appearance of wrinkles, scars, age spots, uneven skin tone and  other skin irregularities.

     This treatment is safe for all skin types.

  • Laser Genesis

 ----------------------------

    This non-invasive procedure gently heats the upper dermis of the skin, stimulating collagen regrowth and addressing a number of issues including excessive redness, large pores, uneven skin texture and fine lines and some types of scars. The overall effect is a vibrant, healthy, glowing skin.

  • Sapphire Photoabrasion

  -------------------------------------

    This treatment consists of a suction-free micro-abrasion with lymphatic drainage, microcurrent, and red and blue light technology.

   Unlike regular microdermabrasion which only provides dry abrasion, the Sapphire combines a dry and wet abrasion for a deeper, more thorough exfoliation as well as the infusion of vitamins and minerals contained in serums suited especially for your individual skin type and skin issues.

    The Sapphire also offers the benefits of a lymphatic drainage massage to calm puffiness and remove toxins from the skin.

     Red L.E.D light stimulates the production of collagen to firm the skin. Blue light therapy destroys harmful acne-causing bacteria.

    This treatment is wonderful for maintaining a healthy, vibrant complexion as it helps to address mild hyperpigmentation, acne, fine lines, dull complexion, enlarged/clogged pores and  prematurely aging skin.

    Sapphire photoabrasion can be used on its own, or in conjunction with other laser and light based treatments to increase their effectiveness.

    A series of 5-6 treatments (every 2-4 weeks) is recommended, followed by maintenance treatments as needed.

    

  • Medifacials

  ---------------------------

  • Chemical Peels

 ------------------------------

    Chemical peeling is a method of regenerating and resurfacing the skin by removing its top layers, helping to make way for new, fresh skin cells and inducing collagen remodelling in the process.

    We offer a variety of chemical peels ranging from superficial to medium depth. The type of peel performed will be decided after a thorough consultation with one of our dermatologists and depends on the skin issue to be addressed, the patient's skin type and colour, and the area of the body to be treated.

    Chemical peels can help address a number of issues including sun damaged skin, dark marks resulting from acne or insect bites, and textural irregularities. Chemical peels may be applied to the face, chest, arms, legs or back.
