At Visage Clinic, we love wrinkle injections and fillers!    We think cosmetic surgery is fantastic!  But, if your skin – the canvas of your personal portrait – is unhealthy, then the picture is not as pretty!  The portrait is then out of focus, tends to have a greyish tone and the beauty does not shine through.

You probably think that you don’t have time for intensive skin care program?  Then pamper your skin with good basic medical grade skin care to help delay the natural aging process and prevent skin problems.  We will help design a simple program for you that is easy as 1,2,3.   For those who need more,  our lasers and peels can improve rough and discolored skin in as little as 3 – 4 months.   Imagine years of damage improved in such a short time – we can do it!

One of the most basic and important ways to start taking care of your skin is to protect it from the sun.  A lifetime of sun exposure can cause wrinkles, age spots and other skin problems — as well as increase the risk of skin cancer.  Obagi and ZO zinc-based sunscreens are broad-spectrum physical blocks with a minimum SPF of 30 (and we have the 50 as well).  Non-greasy and silky to the touch, these products should be in everyone’s vanities.

A Retinol or Vitamin A should be included in the basics of all skin care regimes.  Retinols unplug pores, help clear up acne, reduce fine lines, boost collagen production, lighten brown spots and freckles, and improve skin texture.   At Visage Clinic, we will customize our ZO medical skin care to suit your lifestyle.

The next step in skin care would be lasers.   Lasers treatments slow down the aging process of skin by increasing collagen production in the skin.

The Scition Erbium Profractional laser is an anti-aging skin technology that treats brown spots, acne scarring, sun damage, fine lines and uneven skin texture on women and men of any age.  There is a mild downtime of 4 to 7 days – but well worth it!  This laser is safe for all skin types and multiple treatments are needed.

The Sciton Microlaser Peel is a light full resurfacing.  Known as the weekend laser peel, that precisely ablates the outermost layers of the skin.  It is perfect for those who want more than microdermabrasion but less than full resurfacing.   Done on a Thursday or Friday, you are back to work on Monday!

Broad Band Light (BBL) or Intense Pulse Light has been proven to slow down skin aging. While treating brown spots and small facial veins, this treatment also stimulates collagen.  For men and women with a very active lifestyle, this laser treatment together with medical skin care is perfect.  There is no downtime.   Have a treatment at lunch and go back to the office.    Your first treatments are done in a series of 4 (1 per month) and then maintenance is one or two treatments yearly and medical skin care.

Peels are the lightest treatment in medical skin care.  They are safe for any skin type or color.  The actual peeling  is very mild to almost none.   There is no downtime, and peels can be done every month.  Peels are great for improving  acne, melasma, sun damage, fine lines, texture roughness, large pores, dullness.   Results are a smoother, healthier  and glowing skin.

So this February and this is Valentines… be kind and pamper your skin.  You will love it!
