How to get rid of hollow under-eyes in 30 minutes

Tear troughs are deformities of the under eye area, such as the depression or sunken-in appearance under the eyes, mostly near the bridge of the nose. Tear troughs also include dark shadows under the eyes, commonly referred as under eye dark circles.

Under eye deformities can make us look tired and aged. Eye creams, gels and other cosmetic ointments can only do so much, but it cannot create fuller under-eyes nor can it remove excess skin/fat under the eyes.

Dermal fillers are currently the best non-surgical alternative to correcting under-eye deformities. NewDermaMed uses Anteis’ Esthélis fillers, which are considered the next generation of dermal fillers and have been proven to solve your tear trough concerns.

Esthélis is the only highly cross-linked gel that can be injected very superficially for even, more natural, effective and long lasting results than other dermal fillers due to its slow degradation process. In addition, Esthélis fillers are FDA approved to treat fine lines, wrinkles and assist in the rehydration of the skin.

The precision of the injection is important for successful dermal filler treatment. The Anteis Injection System is a new, automated electronic injection system for fillers and rejuvenation products, designed as a modern alternative to traditional injection procedures that provides increased accuracy, comfort, and safety.

Esthélis products contain hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally produced component by the skin and is the key factor of young looking skin. As you age, your skin produces less hyaluronic acid, resulting in thinner skin, wrinkles and loss volume in your face. Your skin will immediately integrate Esthélis since your body recognizes it as a natural component. Due to its natural components, it is perfectly biocompatible, fully biodegradable, extremely safe to use with minimal risks of allergic reactions or side effects. Your skin gradually, and naturally, reabsorbs Esthélis between a 9 to 12 month period. Results can be seen within 30 minutes of treatment!

What sets Esthélis fillers apart from other hyaluronic acid fillers on the market is that Esthélis Fillers are the most natural fillers on the market. They are made from non-animal hyaluronic acid. With its CMP technology patent, Esthélis fillers last much longer than other dermal fillers due to its slow degradation process.

Summer to Fall Skin Care Transition

Fall is coming! Temperatures are dropping, days are getting shorter, nights are getting longer, the air is getting colder and drier, and our skin begins to lose its moisture.

It is important to adjust your skin care regimen when we begin to enter a new season. With the change in climate, our skin loses its natural moisture. The drier and colder weather also promotes the worsening of acne and rosacea. Therefore, we need to adjust our skin care routines to hydrate our skin, preventing the drying, sensitive, redness, and itching effects, and the aggravation of acne and rosacea from occurring. In addition, the failure to hydrate around the eyes also causes irritation and pigmentation, which leads to what we all despise – under eye dark circles.

Our bodies’ natural skin barrier comprises primarily of lipids. They work to prevent moisture loss. Aging and sun damage can cause the depletion of this barrier. Moisturizing can help improve the barrier by reducing water loss while the natural barrier works to renew itself. Therefore, the first and most important step when transitioning into the fall season is hydrating your skin! There are two types of moisturizers: Protective emollients, or occlusive agents, and hydrators, also known as humectants or hydrophilic agents.

Protective emollients or occlusive agents comprise of fatty acids that causes occlusion – the ability to keep moisture in the skin. These help the skin to keep its natural moisture from escaping the epidermis by placing a layer of emollient over the skin.

Hydrators, humectants or hydrophilic agents, are comprised of ‘water-loving’ molecules. They attract water from the lower levels of the skin to the surface, and can attract water from the atmosphere, locking moisture onto the skin’s surface.

Our everyday moisturizers contain both emollients and humectants. Creams, which are thicker in consistency, have more emollients than lotions or fluids. Therefore, when transitioning from summer to fall, it’s best to change from lotions to creams.

You can also help boost your body’s moisture, treat post-summer skin problems and gain better, smoother, hydrated, and healthy skin with services provided here at NewDermaMed:

Oxygen Facials – these super hydrating facial treatments use fine mists of oxygen infused with vitamins to instantly plump, hydrate and smoothen your skin cells. A great bonus to this is that it creates a great canvas for easy and smooth makeup application!

Microdermabrasion – Now that summer is over, it is important to exfoliate and get rid of dead skin cells that lay on the surface of our skins. These dead skin cells create a dull, uneven skin tone. With microdermabrasion, it gently clears your skin and most importantly – refreshes your skin! Microdermabrasion significantly treats clogged pores, dry and dull skin patches, sunspots and other skin conditions caused by sun exposure during the summer!

Laser Genesis and IPL Photo Rejuvenation – The long sunny summer days in many cases causes us to develop sun spots, also known as age-spots, uneven skin tones and textures due to sun exposure, especially unprotected sun exposure. With Laser Genesis and Photo rejuvenation, we can help you achieve radiant, clear, and smooth skin for the upcoming fall season!

To aid in this summer to fall transition, we encourage the use of SPF to prevent sun damage and other effects of UV rays that exist even during the fall season. Feel free to contact us so we can help you customize and build your new fall skin care regimen!

Do you know the ABCs of melanoma?

It is estimated that this year alone:

  • 6,000 Canadians will be diagnosed with melanoma.
  • 1,050 Canadians will die from melanoma.
  • 3,300 Canadian  men will be diagnosed with melanoma and 640 will die from it.
  • 2,700 Canadian women will be diagnosed with melanoma and 390 will die from it.
Malignant melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer. However, the earlier it is treated, the more likely the chance of recovery. Below are 5 signs to be on the look out for when trying to detect a potentially cancerous growth on the skin:

Asymmetry: Healthy moles and beauty marks are normally symmetrical. If you visualize a straight line going through the growth at any direction, both sides should be identical.

Border: If the rim of the mole is irregular or poorly defined, you may want to have it checked out by a dermatologist.

Colour: Various shades of brown, black or tan in a single spot often means that the cells are not functioning properly. Be wary of unusual hues such as blue, white or red.

Diameter: Generally, moles larger than six millimeters across are cause for suspicion, however even the smallest of growths can be malignant and/or life-threatening.

Evolution: If the mole has changed in anyway over a period of time, contact your dermatologist immediately.

Because melanoma can metastasize (spread), treatment is absolutely essential. Melanocytes, the cells responsible for giving skin its pigment, is where melanoma begins. Melanoma cells usually continue to produce melanin and is the reason why malignant moles can sometimes take on a mix of colours at once.

At NewDermaMed, we offer a variety of treatments for mole removal depending on the size and location of the growth. By removing a mole, you eliminate the health risks associated with potentially pre-cancerous moles while also achieving smoother, clearer skin. Visit our website for more information about the benefits of mole removal and to book your free consultation today.
