Dermatologist or Medical Aesthetician is a question we get asked often. In fact, oftentimes we see patients after they’ve been to their Dermatologist/Physician and “tried it all” and are left unhappy and still battling with acne, melasma, rosacea, you name it! Sound familiar? Let’s clarify the difference.
The bad news: As much as we all love to soak up the sun, that bright beast is hyper-aging. Sun damage can occur every time you’re out in the sun without protection, and you may not even see the effects until years later or now since you’re interested in how to fix it.
UV radiation actually alters the DNA of your skin cells, causing fine lines, wrinkles, redness, brown spots and even cancer. 😱
Are you already panicking about how to stave off sun damage this summer? We feel you and we’re here for you. If you keep up with our Beauty Blog on the reg (or have had any treatments with our NuAGE Experts), you already know the importance of wearing your sun protection every single day, rain or shine, July or December. You would also know that a good sunscreen is your #1 anti-aging skin care product you can keep in your arsenal. But how do you know what sunscreen is best for your face?
The answer is in your skin.
Smooth Skin, Happy Planet: How Laser Is Saving Our Landfills
Did you know that the average woman spends 1,728 hours in her lifetime shaving? It’s no secret that vanity comes with a certain time commitment, and sometimes this commitment can feel more like a complete waste of time. You’re busy, you’ve got sh*t to do. Why waste your precious time on tedious beauty rituals like shaving?
Has gravity got you feeling down? It’s time to say hello to the newest anti-gravity skin tightening treatment available from our NuAGE skin experts in Vancouver.
Our brand new treatment, Deep Dermal Tightening, works its magic on the cheeks, mouth, jawline, jowls and neck to reverse the signs of aging (and gravity!) and put things back where they belong. The best part? We’re the first clinic in Vancouver to exclusively offer Deep Dermal Tightening with the Cutera Excel HR.
A few key factors set our devices apart from our competitors, the first and most important being Cutera’s truPulse technology. We are proud to offer the only Nd:YAG platform to measurably deliver constant, sustained energy throughout the pulse duration. This ensures consistent performance and superior clinical outcomes. In other words, the most effective treatment for you every time. And if the results weren’t a good enough reason to choose Cutera, how about for the peace of mind knowing that you’ll be comfortable and protected throughout the whole process? Read More
When it comes to treating absolutely any skin condition, it’s important to keep the 70:30 ratio of treatments to products in mind. About 70% of the results you can expect will come from in-clinic treatments, but it can be dependant on the other 30%, which accounts for your home care and how you condition your skin. Remember your acid mantle? That’s where we need to focus our efforts first and foremost. Whether it’s acne, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles or rosacea, without your acid mantle doing its job, everything else is a wasted effort. We must strengthen the barrier.
Your rosy cheeks may have been adorable when you were five, but not so much anymore. If you’ve been struggling your whole life with attempting to cover up the redness in your skin, we feel your pain! Nobody likes a band-aid fix, so we’re here to tell you how to calm down the redness for good. Before you stop reading because you think your slight pink flush isn’t rosacea, think again. We hate to be the bearers of bad news but if you’re rocking a blushing veil when you don’t mean to be, it’s rosacea. However, fear not, because of course, we have a solution for our NuAGE babes.
You’ve made it past your acneic days of juicy, pus-filled breakouts but you’re still haunted by the lingering marks…What gives? As if the acne wasn’t bad enough, now you have to work to reverse the aftermath. If you read our other blog this month, Types of Acne and What they Mean, then you learned all about the super fun possibilities that acne has to offer. In this post, we’re going to break down the various types of acne scars it can leave behind and, of course, how we can ditch them for good.
So, you have acne…welcome to the club. It’s said that roughly 95% of people will experience acne at some point in their lives. And we have news for you, just because you made it through the teenage years doesn’t mean you’re out of the woods – more on that later. Different types of acne can strike at any age for any number of reasons and it’s actually the most common skin condition in teens and adults alike. Infants and toddlers can even experience acne! What a bummer.
As a Vancouver laser and skin care clinic, one of the most common questions we get asked is, “How do I get rid of my large pores?” or “How do I shrink my large pores?” and while you can’t technically shrink pores since they have no muscle to contract or relax, they do get bigger and we can make them smaller. How you ask? Well, there are a number of ways ranging from products to treatments but today we’re going to talk about our favorite pore-vanishing duo: Laser Genesis and ZOⓇ Skin Health’s new Instant Pore Refiner.
