LIP AUGMENTATION

At NewDermaMed, we see many patients (mostly women, but not exclusively) come in requesting lip fillers. Some are looking to emulate a celebrity’s perfect pout, like Angelina Jolie, or like the unofficial face of lip fillers, Kylie Jenner, who went from thin lips to full lips, to fuller lips over the course of a few months. Others are requesting more subtle changes to bring back their lips youthful appeal lost over time due to aging. It is important to differentiate between these two lip filler procedures when doing your research. Both procedures are considered lip augmentations, but the latter is known as a lip rejuvenation.

A lip augmentation is meant for those individuals that are unhappy with the shape and structure of their natural lips. Perhaps they feel that their lips are too thin, or too imbalanced. Whatever their reason for wanting a lip augmentation, the structure of classically beautiful lips will always be used for comparison. Going by Hollywood standards, classically beautiful lips are curved, distinct and with a well-defined cupids bow.

Other important features of aesthetically beautiful lips include:

  • The lower lip should be about a third thicker than the upper lips.
  • The lower lip should also measure longer from corner to corner than the upper lip.
  • The corners of the mouth should be straight or slightly elevated.
  • The distance between the nose and upper lip should be approximately 18-20 millimetres.
  • The distance from lower lip to the chin should be approximately 36 to 40 millimetres.

The goal of a lip augmentation: Of course, not everyone is born with the anatomy to suit this ideal lip structure, so the goal of a lip augmentation should not be to follow those exact specifications. The main goal of a lip augmentation is to achieve the ideal shape for your unique profile. Only a highly skilled medical professional will know exactly how to evaluate your profile to determine the best shape for you.

THE ANTIOXIDANT FOR YOUR SKIN

Vitamin C is an essential antioxidant, but unlike plants and animals, humans rely on external supplementation. The necessity of the vitamin C antioxidant in our diet was discovered by Dr. Albert Goyrgi when he exposed Vitamin C deficiency to be the cause of Scurvy. Goyrgi found that humans cannot synthesize Vitamin C due to our lack of the enzyme ‘glucono-gamma lactone oxidase’. He even won a Nobel Prize for it! Nowadays, many of us take vitamin C supplements, or eat enough green vegetables and citrus fruits to sufficiently get our intake. Even packaged processed foods include vitamin C in their ingredients. I think it’s safe to say, we have scurvy covered. So let’s not allow this incredible antioxidant be glorified only as a historic illness fighting entity.

Vitamin C is also the most beneficial antioxidant for the maintenance and protection of our skin. Vitamin C absorption from diet alone will no doubt help our immune systems fight off all kinds of viruses, but it is limiting the vitamins beautiful skin promoting abilities. And that is such a shame when there are so many benefits to boast. Some may think, “If I take higher doses of vitamin C, I will get those benefits”. Right? Wrong! Even with higher doses of oral Vitamin C, only a fraction will be biologically available and active in the skin. In order to achieve the ultimate Vitamin C action in the skin, cosmeceuticals are the answer. Yes, vitamin C can effectively be absorbed through the skin and in order to achieve full skin promoting benefits, a vitamin C serum or cream should be a part of your daily skin regime.

Topically applying Vitamin C in the case of cosmeceuticals protects our skin cells from oxidative stress and free radical damage caused by pollution, smoking and solar radiation. To help you understand what this all means, let me explain. Oxidative stress is when your skin is exposed to toxic environmental factors and the actual skin cells can’t thrive. The lack of clean oxygen suffocates your cells and leads to the formation of sunburn cells, thymine dimers, solar elastosis, and irregular cell cycle division. ‘Free radicals’ are the toxic unstable molecules in your skin that are reactive to the oxidative stress. Free-radicals actually cause damage to your DNA, proteins, and cell membranes and manifest photo-damage, photo-ageing, and by far the worst, skin cancer.

Out of all the antioxidants (Vitamin E, feluric acid, phloretin, idebenone, green tea, resveratrol, lycopene, grape seed, niacinamide, ubiquinone, geinstein, silymarin, coffee berry, polyhydroxy acids, carotenoids, kinetin, and glutathione) vitamin C is by far the most powerful antioxidant for neutralizing the formation of free radicals in the skin. Clinical studies have proven that applying vitamin C to the skin will actually improve all parameters of photodamage and reduce the risk of skin cancer. But surprise, that is not all of the beautiful skin promoting qualities of vitamin C. In addition to the photodamage and skin cancer protection benefits, (in of itself are reason to jump on the vitamin C topical application wagon) vitamin C is essential for:

  • Collagen Biosynthesis
  • Inhibition of collagen breakdown
  • Stabilisation of collagen fibres
  • Inhibiting the biosynthesis of elastin. (elastin is the enzyme that degrades elastic fibres in the skin causing photodamage.)
  • Anti-inflammatory effect
  • Anti-pigmentation effect

Though the vitamin C antioxidant has so many wonderful skin promoting benefits on its own, when used in combination with sunblock the effects are complimented and improved. When looking for a vitamin C product to use daily, you may find that there are many formulations. Here is my best advice: Go with a brand known for their quality like IS Clinical or Prescribed Solutions and look for the ingredient L-ascorbic acid as it is the most biologically active form of the antioxidant when formulated appropriately.

GO MAKEUP FREE WITH THIS REVOLUTIONARY TREATMENT

During the summer, I always felt so cute with my sun tan and fresh freckles. But as an adult, come winter, my fair skin was a canvas of blotchiness, hyperpigmentation, and sunspots in all the wrong places. I never really thought that blotchiness was going to be such a problem for me, but UVA and UVB sun damage caught up to me, and it was definitely a problem. The only way to cover up my blotchiness was to wear tons of foundation and cover up that I was totally uncomfortable wearing since I always had clear skin. I didn’t feel like myself with foundation and cover up and I didn’t feel like myself without it. A conundrum of sorts. It wasn’t until I went to a cosmetic dermatologist and learned about the latest photofacial technology for permanently treating sun spots like mine, that I was able to regain my skin confidence. The Cutera Limelight Photo Rejuvenation treatment is a versatile and powerful innovation, providing the safest and most effective treatment for age spots, sun spots, and hyperpigmentation. Over the past 2 years I have received approximately 6 Limelight treatments, and I continue to do them seasonally for touch ups. My skin has literally never looked better.

The Limelight treatment involves a technology called intense pulse light (IPL) to safely and effectively remove signs of aging and sun damage. The light energy specifically targets the pigments in your skin that make it appear blotchy and uneven. You can have the treatment done in a specific spot on your face or body, or you can have it done on a larger area. I do my entire face because there are other benefits to the treatment besides eliminating unwanted pigment. The treatment brightens skin, treats fine lines, enlarged pores, broken capillaries, redness, and mild skin texture issues. It really is a revolutionary treatment.

The entire treatment takes 30 minutes and it is pretty feasible to do inconspicuously over a lunch hour at work. Besides some very minor swelling, and darkening of the pigmented spots, you can walk out of your appointment, put on a little makeup and go back to work without anyone noticing. I mean, as long as you aren’t pointing it out. Within a day the swelling goes down, and within one week the pigments will have made their way to the top of the skin. With a light exfoliation or two the spots will eventually slough off and after 3-6 treatments the spots will never to be seen or heard from again. Well, as long as you stay out of the sun of course!

After receiving my Limelight treatments, I am much more conscious of wearing sunscreen and limiting my sun exposure because life without foundation is just so much better. I don’t want to go back to blotchiness, sunspots and hyperpigmentation, even if it means giving up my cute tan and fresh freckles.

VOLUMIZE AND LIFT WITHOUT SURGERY

Before taking the plunge into surgery, why not try the non-surgical facelift known as the SOFT LIFT? The SOFT LIFT is a customized total facial rejuvenation procedure that combines Juvederm with Botox Cosmetic to enhance your natural beauty at any age. The treatment is non-invasive and beneficial for both men and woman looking to rejuvenate, refresh and rebalance their look.

The SOFT LIFT procedure is painless, there is no downtime, and the results are very natural looking. You will look just like you, only more radiant and youthful. Moreover, you do not have to consider the serious potential complications that you would with surgery and if you do not like the way you look, (which you will!) it’s entirely reversible, whereas surgery is not.

SIGNS OF AGING TO BE ADDRESSED BY THE SOFT LIFT

Natural signs of aging in our skin are due to the slowing of skin cell renewal, decreased collagen and hyaluronic acid production. Usually the signs of aging begin showing in our 30’s. Skin begins to lose its volume and elasticity, while wrinkles develop on the forehead, around the eyes, and between the nose and mouth. A surgical facelift cannot address the loss of volume, elasticity, collagen and hyaluronic acid production. The SOFT LIFT is the only facelift that can address all of these issues and in a single session no less! Pretty impressive I’d say.

HOW DOES THE SOFT LIFT WORK?

The SOFT LIFT procedure is performed by a medical professional that will customize the treatment to each patient’s unique needs with a combination of Botox Cosmetic and Juvederm dermal filler. Whether your motivation is for prevention, or rejuvenation, the SOFT LIFT procedure can achieve your desired results. The goal of the SOFT LIFT is always to keep your natural beauty in balance at every age.

Botox and Juvederm address different key areas of the face that show signs of aging.

Dynamic wrinkles like the frown lines, forehead lines, and Crows Feet are best treated with Botox. Tiny painless injections relax facial muscles and fade lines with noticeable improvement in just days. The results can last up to 4 months, however, overtime continual injections may prevent further wrinkles that may have appeared otherwise. Botox is the most widely used Botulinum treatment around the world. It will safely enhance the way you look instead of changing the way you look. An experienced medical professional will make your appearance look more natural and refreshed.

Redefining facial contours, smoothing skin and adding natural looking volume can only be addressed with Juvederm. Juvederm Voluma and Volift are the preferred dermal fillers because they are next generation dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring sugar found in your own body. The procedure involves little to no discomfort and it is clinically proven to last up to one year. The results will immediately make you look fresher, younger and more relaxed. You will just love it!

If you are considering to have the SOFT LIFT procedure, we would love to offer you a complimentary consultation with our medical professionals. We can analyze your skin and design a personal treatment plan to help you achieve your aesthetic goal.

THE TOP 4 REASONS YOU ARE NOT LOSING BODY FAT

As a young person, I basically never worked out. Going to the gym seemed like an awful endeavour and I was happy enough with my body because I was always relatively thin. It wasn’t until my late 20’s that I realized my natural thin body was losing its way. My legs and bottom had cellulite and my love handles were in my opinion, unlovable. At first, in true lackadaisical form, I paid an absurd amount of money at a Toronto cosmetic clinic to have a procedure done where a machine gets rid of extra inches and cellulite. Did it work? No, it didn’t. Because those things are scams! If only I had known then what I know now.

After that sad experience, I knew I had to get in shape the old fashioned way – I had to work out. I got myself a personal trainer whom I saw twice a week and I would do my own work out once a week. When I started I was approximately 130 pounds and 26% body fat (I am 5 foot 3 and a quarter). That is on the higher side of the healthy range, and by no means considered fit. But I wanted to be fit!

It has been 2 and a half years since I started this workout regime and my body is definitely stronger now. I have much better stamina and I can lift heavier than I ever thought possible. But, I am still nowhere close to where I want to be. Sure I have lost 5 pounds, but my body fat percentage is still at 26%. I still have unlovable love handles. I still have cellulite invading my rear.

So what have I been doing wrong? I spoke to a professional fitness trainer who prepares fitness models for competitions and this is what he said are the top 4 reasons why I am not losing body fat.

  1. You Over-Eat

If you eat fewer calories than you expend in a day, you will lose weight. “Calories in, calories out” is a good expression to go by, but it’s important to keep in mind that the type of calories you are eating also matters. You need the right combination of protein, carbohydrates and healthy fats to build muscle and burn fat. Also, keep in mind that even when you are eating something considered healthy, like a salad, it can be very high in calories because of the dressing. And when you eat out at restaurants, you can never be sure of the contents of your meal. Your “healthy” salmon filet with a side of veg could be cooked in butter, adding hundreds of additional calories.

  1. Your Diet is Too Low in Protein

Protein builds and repairs muscle tissue, keeps you feeling less hungry, and has a positive effect on the body’s blood lipids, glucose levels, and muscle-to fat ratios. Choosing high protein foods at every major meal instead of carbohydrates will result in fat loss over time.

  1. You Have High Stress Levels

Stress can be holding you back from your fat loss goals. When you are stressed, your body produces a fat producing hormone called cortisol. Try lowering your stress levels by doing yoga, meditating, taking a bath, or reading. Whatever it is that helps you relax, do it, because your fat loss depends on it.

  1. You are Sleep Deprived

Sleep is so necessary for our body and mind to function, let alone lose body fat. Sleep deprivation can cause insulin sensitivity and heightened cortisol levels, which will keep your body’s fat storage high. Sleep must be a priority on your fat loss journey. A minimum of 8 hours a night seems like a lot for most working people, but it is the optimal amount for fat loss. Try limiting your caffeine intake and turn off your electronics an hour before bedtime to set yourself up for a good night sleep.

THE NOSEJOB WITHOUT DOWNTIME

For as long as I can remember, a surgical nose job was the only option for individuals who were unhappy with the look of their nose. A surgical nose job, also called rhinoplasty, is a very high impact procedure that comes with several concerns. Besides getting put under anaesthesia which can be dangerous in itself, a surgeon literally has to cut your nose open and hammer the cartilage into shape. The room for error is huge, and the results are permanent. Also, the healing time is no easy feat. It can take weeks for the swelling to go down and it can take up to a year for your nose to fully settle. That is a long time to wait! Of course, for some individuals, with major shape or size issues, a surgical nose job may be their best bet. But for those individuals who need more minor or subtle changes like grooves, indentations, lumps or bumps, there is a new non-surgical nose job procedure that can easily correct these imperfections with no downtime whatsoever.

The non-surgical nose job is not magic, though it is revolutionary. The procedure uses hyaluronic acid dermal fillers to add volume and augment the nose with the least amount of impact. A good injector can quickly and easily correct imperfections by manipulating the shape in very subtle ways. Though the procedure can’t take away excess height or excess bulk, it can add an illusion of a more refined nose. By working on the shape and symmetry of the nose, the non-surgical nose job will cheat the eye, making it appear smaller, thinner, or more defined. Juvederm Voluma is the best hyaluronic dermal filler for the non-surgical nose job because it has been modified to last 9-12 months in the nose. The injection has a numbing solution, so not only is the procedure quick, but you can’t feel a thing! Another major plus to the procedure, is that if you don’t like the results, the product can be dissolved and you can have your old nose back.

The procedure can address so many of the issues that people have with their noses and it can be done in as little as 30 minutes. Depending on the issue at hand, there are several techniques that a good injector will use to create the desired effect. The types of issues that the non-surgical nose jobs are really great at correcting are:

A dorsal bump that gives a hook effect. The injector can straighten the hump with filler on either side of the hump and lift the tip so that it appears to point more upward.

A saddle nose that creates a dip or flattened bridge effect above the tip. The injector will use filler to add volume to the dip and make the nose appear lifted and much straighter.

A thin nose with a bulbous tip can be undesirable. The injector will correct this by putting filler into the bridge to make it more even. The overall look will be thinner.

Misshapen nostrils can also be remedied. The injector can use filler to make them appear smaller, change their angle, close some of the width and make them less flared and more narrow.

Botched rhinoplasty can be revised. When people have had a rhinoplasty and are unhappy with the results, fillers can be used to make the necessary revisions – a much less dramatic way to resolve these issues.

If you have ever had any reservations about the appearance of your nose, and have even considered surgery, I highly recommend having a consultation for a non-surgical nose job first. You may be surprised at how happy you will be with the results.

 

GLO MINERALS

Body toxicity is the leading cause of premature aging. Reducing your body’s toxicity of course means eating cleaner, drinking less alcohol, reducing stress, and making healthier lifestyle choices in general. But sometimes these healthy lifestyle choices aren’t totally obvious. Were you aware that a major source of your toxicity is absorbed directly through your skin? The epidermis is the largest organ in the human body, so it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise. The toxicity absorbed through the skin comes from the water you bathe in, from the air pollution you live in, and perhaps worst of all, from the products that you apply directly to your skin. More often than not, there are chemical ingredients in your everyday skin care products that can build up and eventually harm you.

Makeup is something that most women of a certain age can’t live without, but the very makeup many women are using may be responsible for the signs of aging they are trying to cover up. Finding a mineral makeup line that is as effective as it is safe is not easy. I am here to tell you that the glo minerals makeup line is the most incredible makeup I have ever seen, and that’s not just in comparison to other mineral makeup lines.

CHEMICAL PEELS

I took care of my skin for as long as I can remember. I wore sunscreen. Used high quality products. Ate pretty decently and drank pretty sparingly. But even with all this care-taking, I still have fine lines across my forehead, a few brown spots on my cheeks, and what looks like the very early stages of under eye crepiness. Throughout my beauty journey I have tried Botox, Intense Pulse Light Therapy, Laser Genesis, and chemical peels and I have found that medical grade chemical peels are a treatment that everyone and anyone can benefit from at any age. After 3 to 10 days of peeling post chemical peel, your skin is noticeably brighter, fresher, tighter and more evenly toned.

Chemical peels help:

  • Improve skin texture
  • Improve skin tone
  • Increase cell turnover
  • Improve skin hydration
  • Reduce hyperpigmentation
  • Deliver a glowy complexion
  • Increase skin smoothness
  • Produce collagen
  • Clear acne
  • Improve minor scarring

What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a customized chemical facial peel designed to remove unhealthy skin cells, promote cell turnover and increase collagen growth. A chemical peel damages the skin in a controlled manner so that when the skin heals it appears improved. Before receiving a chemical peel it is of the utmost importance to go to a medical expert who understands the needs of your skin. Your medical professional will customize a specific chemical cocktail for your skin type, condition and problem.

Chemical peels are both a science and an art and must be precisely applied by a professional. Never order a chemical peel off the internet. I repeat, never order a chemical peel of the internet!! Doing a DIY chemical peel is a dangerous road to go down; you may end up looking like two-face from Batman. It is no joke.

Chemical peels range in strength from superficial to medium to deep. Knowing the strength of the peel is extremely important because your lifestyle can be impacted after the treatment, and you will want to have planned accordingly.

A superficial peel is perfect for individuals with dry skin, very fine lines, skin dullness, acne spots and slight hyperpigmentation. They are known as the lunchtime peel because it gently eliminates dead skin cells and speeds up the regeneration of the top layer of skin providing instant results with little to no downtime (minus a few days of dry tight skin).

The ingredients most commonly used are:

  • Hydroxyl acids such as glycolic, lactic, citric, malic and tartaric acid
  • Beta hydroxyl acids such as salicylic acid for a bit stronger of an exfoliation.

Medium depth peels penetrate a little deeper into the dermis where deeper blemishes and sun spots lie. This peel is effective at stimulating collagen, tightening the skin, and eliminating sun damage; however, it does require some downtime for recovery (7 to 10 days to be exact).

The most common acid for a medium depth peel are:

  • TCA (trichloroacetic acid)
  • TCA mixed with Glycolic acid.
  • The usual concentrations of these acids are 25%-35% but a medical professional may go higher depending on your skin type and condition.

Deep peels are clearly the most extreme of the bunch, used to treat deep wrinkles and severe sun damage. These peels are made from carbolic acid. Though these peels may be effective, they are also risky. They require sedation and can cause scarring and other complications. I definitely would not recommend this to anyone. If you are at this point in your beauty journey, you are better off spending money on a fractional laser skin resurfacing treatment, which is far more precise and exceedingly more effective.

As we age our body’s skin cell turn over slows down leaving us with wrinkles, discoloration and dullness.  Chemical Peels increase the cell turnover, helping your body regenerate new healthy skin cells. For the best results, your medical professional will recommend a schedule of chemical peels – usually once every 3-4 weeks depending on the type of facial peel. It should be noted that you must follow a specific skin care regime before and after a peel. This means staying out of the sun, wearing 45 SPF sunscreen and not using chemical creams and face washes. Dealing with chemicals can be tricky and products that have exfoliating chemicals in them can make your skin extra sensitive to the treatment. Listen to your medical expert and follow their instructions strictly.

JUVEDERM VYCROSS TECHNOLOGY

 

Allergan dermal fillers have become increasingly popular over the past 10 years to help rejuvenate and revitalize aged, saggy, hollowed and tired skin. Those who have tried Allergan’s older generations of dermal filler have come back with 1 major complaint. They found the products to have short lived effects losing fullness quickly. With this complaint in mind, Allergan began their research to improve their Juvederm product line and increase customer satisfaction.

At the 11th Congress of Anti-Aging & Aesthetic Medicine in Monaco, Allergan presented their revolutionary development in Juvederm dermal fillers. Their new Juvederm product line made up of three products was developed with Vycross technology using a combination of low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid with an interconnected matrix stronger than any dermal fillers before it. This special hyaluronic acid takes much longer for the body to break down, meaning longer lasting results.

The Vycross technology Juvederm dermal fillers are: Voluma, Volift, and Volbella. Each hyaluronic acid product was designed with special characteristics for specific areas of the face.

RESTORE VOLUME with Juvederm Voluma

Lost volume can be even more aging than lines and wrinkles. A youthful face is characterized by smooth contours, full cheeks, and a straight jawline. Juvederm Voluma was designed to restore these youthful features by adding volume to the face such as in the cheeks and chin. This product has the strongest lifting effect and has been proven to last up to 2 years.

REDUCE SMILE LINES with Juvederm Volift

Deep skin depressions in the lines that run vertically from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth begin to form as a result of skin losing volume and elasticity. These lines not only age you, but also change our expressions, making us appear sad. Juvederm Volift was designed for filling, smoothing and rejuvenating deep lines like the nasolabial folds. Juvederm Volift will instantly rejuvenate your appearance in a single treatment and its effects can last up to one year.

ENHANCE AND REJUVENATE YOUR LIPS with Juvederm Volbella

Full lips with a defined border are a youthful feature that you may have had in your youth or wish to have. Collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid are what make lips look full and as we age these naturally substances decrease. Juvederm Volbella was designed for restoring volume and augmenting the lips. The hyaluronic acid in this product is softer and more malleable than conventional dermal fillers meaning it can be evenly applied and result in a more beautiful natural fullness in the lips. This product is the only dermal filler proven to last up to 12 months in the lips in a single treatment.

The Vycross technology dermal fillers do not only address the issues of short-term effectiveness of the previous generations, but also present many other improvements. They can be more easily targeted and injected, which benefits patients comfort. They are proven to provide smoother, more natural results, which increases patient satisfaction. The hyaluronic acid in the product absorbs less water than the dermal fillers before it, resulting in less swelling and more hydration. Overall the Vycross technology is unlike any dermal filler we have seen before and is no doubt, the best dermal filler on the market today.

CLEAVAGE WRINKLES

At this point in life, most of us understand the concept of sun damage and sun protection. Exposure to sun without proper protection will break down collagen cells in the skin and result in a loss of skin firmness and elasticity – this goes hand in hand with wrinkles, sun spots and dullness. Even one weekend at the cottage with a forgotten sunscreen application can lead to sun damage that will forever be etched into your skins chemistry. Every exposed body part needs to be accounted for when using sunscreen because aging is not solely a facial phenomenon. Just like the skin on the hands, the skin just below the neck is often forgotten. Sun damage to the skin in this area will not only result in sun spots and dullness, but also cleavage wrinkles.

Cleavage wrinkles are deep vertical creases caused by push up bras and sleeping on one’s side. For well-endowed woman, cleavage wrinkles may be unavoidable, but early onset cleavage wrinkles can be offset with preventative care like sunscreen. But as I said, once the sun damage is done, the skins chemistry changes losing its elasticity and ability to produce collagen – and there is not much a woman can do on her own to fix it. At NewDermaMed we offer advanced corrective cleavage wrinkle therapies like lasers, dermal fillers and medical grade skin care that are proven to work.

Fractional Laser Resurfacing is a revolutionary laser therapy that we recommend for woman with deeper cleavage wrinkles. The Fractional Laser Resurfacing will even out skin texture and tone, increase skin volume and firmness, and significantly improve the appearance of deep cleavage wrinkles in a single treatment. It works by selectively removing damaged skin cells with a specialized laser beam that leaves healthy skin cells untouched. This focused therapy promotes rapid recovery and dramatic results.

The Laser Peel is a great choice for woman with fine chest wrinkles and skin dullness. The laser peel will improve the appearance of superficial skin imperfections, replacing dullness and fine lines with glowing youthful skin. It works by removing the top superficial layer of skin with a precise laser for a full field treatment. The precision of this laser shortens healing time and stimulates collagen production.

Laser Genesis is recommended for women experiencing fine cleavage lines, skin redness, large pores, and uneven skin texture. This powerful non-invasive laser treatment stimulates collagen production through heating of the upper dermis well below the skin’s surface. This restorative therapy will bring back your chests youthful balance without any pain or recovery.

Redensity I is a novel dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid, amino acids, antioxidant and minerals present in the skin. It is used to treat aging skin linked to sun exposure and restore skin’s ability to reflect light. This treatment is great for any well-endowed woman experiencing cleavage wrinkles or looking to prevent wrinkles in the future. In three sessions at three week intervals the treated area will appear smoother and glowing.

iS CLINICAL Youth Serum and Firming Complex are scientifically advanced products that can be used to dramatically and immediately smooth and tighten chest wrinkles. Both products are botanically based formulas that work synergistically to restore the skin’s structures and encourage long term chest wrinkle reduction.

There is nothing like cleavage wrinkles to reveal a woman’s age. Protect your skin with sunscreen and call us for corrective cleavage wrinkle therapy.
