Anti Aging Treatments

As we age, our skin ages, too. You can’t stop time—but there are steps you can take to reduce its effects on your skin. Here are five of the most common anti-aging treatments available in our Toronto, Markham and North York medi spa. 

REJUUV

Ultherapy

Ultherapy, beloved by many celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston, is the most powerful mini facelift so far in the market. The powerful ultrasound technology in this machine utilizes concentrated waves to create high heat deep in the dermis and can target the SMAS muscle. Ultherapy is different than radio-frequency (RF) or any laser tightening methods since ultrasound technology do not affect the outer layer of the skin. When Ultherapy heats up the different layers, it elicits the body’s natural healing response which then stimulates collagen and elastin production. Results are long-lasting as it creates mature collagen. Our specialized Ultherapy practitioner will mark the face to avoid facial nerves and major vessels. The ultrasound handpiece then delivers specific pulses at specific depths depending on what the treatment area is.

What to expect?

  • No downtime
  • Slight swelling, tingling, tenderness to touch
  • Noticeable results at 2-3 months
  • Final results at 3-6 months
  • Results last 1-2 years

Doctor's Orders

  • Stay healthy – eat well, reduce alcohol and smoking as it contributes to collagen and elastin depletion
  • Sleep for at least 8 hours
  • Exercise at least 1 hour a week

Thermage

Thermage is a radiofrequency facial and body treatment that tightens and lifts the skin by stimulating the formation of collagen and promoting new collagen growth. It has been clinically proven to tighten and gently lift the skin to smooth out wrinkles, renew facial contours, and treat problem areas on the body.  As we age, the collagen that keeps our skin firm breaks down, which results in fine lines, wrinkles, and loose skin. Thermage delivers results after a single non-surgical, and non-invasive treatment with zero downtime. The results will continue to improve over time, which can last up to three years.

 

“All the sit-ups in the world can’t tighten loose skin, but Thermage can! ”

Bonus: Temporarily helps reduce the appearance of cellulite.
