What is Your Skin Concern?


Your Best Fall Fashion Statement starts with Healthy Skin

Fall has finally arrived in Vancouver and as we say goodbye to summer, we welcome the rejuvenation that Fall brings with it.  It is the perfect time to get your skin looking its best by repairing any damage from the summer and preparing your skin for harsher winter weather ahead.

In order to help you look your best this Fall and make your skin your #1 fashion statement, we’ve put together a list of the Top ten ways that can help you achieve beautiful, youthful skin.

THE TOP 10 WAYS…TO MAKE YOUR SKIN LOOK BEAUTIFUL!

TIP #1 – IT’S ALL ABOUT SUN PROTECTION!

Ultra violet light from the sun causes wrinkling, brown spots, broken capillaries, collagen damage and of course some nasty skin cancers.

Be sun savvy by wearing protective clothing and daily use of sunblocks containing zinc oxide or titanium dioxide.

TIP #2 – DON’T FORGET TO TAKE YOUR VITAMINS

Daily use of a vitamin A derivative called a retinol, will improve fine lines and dyspigmentation.  Ensure your retinol cream is strong enough to do the job and be patient as the recovery process does not happen overnight.  We recommend working with a Doctor to find the best retinol cream for you.

TIP #3 – ANTIOXIDANTS DON’T JUST WORK FROM THE INSIDE

Antioxidants applied topically daily, such as Vitamin C preparations can help reduce redness and reverse some of the effects of sun damage.

TIP #4 – EXFOLIATE, EXFOLIATE, EXFOLIATE

Gentle exfoliation of your face with a mild polishing formula or microdermabrasion can help to remove dead skin cells and should be done regularly.

TIP #5 – EXPERIENCE THE WONDER OF PHOTOREJUVENATION

Photorejuvenation using intense pulsed light is an excellent option to manage sun damage, broken capillaries and brown sun spots.  It is the #1 anti-aging tool available!

TIP #6 – COMBAT TEXTURE & SCARRING ISSUES

Fractionated laser resurfacing is used to treat acne scarring and to improve the skin’s texture.  The treatment also tightens the skin and reduces fine lines.

TIP #7 – TIGHTEN YOUR SKIN

Non-surgical tightening procedures such as Ulthera can improve skin laxity.

TIP #8 – COMBAT THE SIGNS OF AGING WITH VOLUME

Dermal fillers are a safe way to add volume to areas of the face that have hollowed with aging.  It also helps to restore youthful contours.

TIP #9 – SOFTEN LINES

Botox injections soften the lines of facial expression to make your skin look more youthful.

TIP #10 – MAKE YOUR HEALTHY LIFESTYLE A PRIORITY

Finally a basic healthy lifestyle does wonders for our appearance.  A healthy diet, plenty of exercise and adequate sleep are essential.  A moderate consumption of alcohol and not smoking can really make a big effect on making the skin look healthier.
