4 quick and easy pre-Valentine’s Day procedures
It’s that time of year again. Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and for many, this means lavish romantic plans on the horizon. But life is messy and tiring, and it’s not always easy to look your best for your beau. It’s perfectly natural to need a little pick-me-up sometimes to feel confident and attractive, especially in the winter months. Thanks to massive advances in medical aesthetics, the SpaMedica Toronto plastic surgery clinic offers patients a variety of highly advanced, noninvasive, nonsurgical procedures to enhance appearance and improve self-confidence—quickly and easily. And since these procedures have little to no downtime, you’re sure to be in full form when V-day rolls around.
- Botox Injectables
When injected, Botox Injectables relaxes the facial muscles responsible for facial movement, thus reducing and softening signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles, and even minimizing the depressive or “pulled-down” effect. The effects are temporary, and after 4-6 months your body’s enzymes break down the harmless compound, so patients wishing to maintain their look generally return to SpaMedica in Toronto for treatments 2-3 times a year. One Botox Injectable session takes about 15 minutes. Expect little discomfort if any, minimal bruising which can be covered with make-up, and you’ll be able to continue with your day right away.
- Soft tissue fillers
Soft tissue fillers are injected beneath the skin to provide contour and shape, volumize, and to correct lines, wrinkles, and furrows caused by aging. Some opt to plump up thinning lips while others enhance or fill in shallow areas on the face, or decrease wrinkles under the eyes. Patients are typically highly satisfied. Although the effects of hyaluronic acid fillers are long-term, they’re not permanent. Generally, a “top up” procedure is needed when there has been significant depletion, which can occur anywhere from 1 to 3 years post-treatment. You’ll heal in a matter of days, and be left with a more youthful, vibrant look.
- Laser hair removal
Laser hair removal is perfect for patients with any skin tone looking to permanently remove or minimize the appearance of unwanted hair. We deploy a number of different wavelength devices, which, when used in combination, optimize the success and degree of your hair removal. By selecting the best laser wavelengths for your skin tone and hair colour, we can selectively kill hair, while minimizing any impact on the surrounding skin. For small areas like the underarms and bikini zone, a series of 6 treatments is typical, once every 6-10 weeks. For large zones like the legs or the back, 5-6 treatments are needed, once every 8-12 weeks. Each treatment takes about 15-30 minutes, and the results are incredible!
The revolutionary MiraDry treatment is a safe, non-invasive procedure that eliminates sweat glands in the underarm area—a true godsend for anyone who suffers from excessive underarm sweating. Excessive underarm sweat is a struggle for many and can interfere with many aspects of one’s social, work, and romantic life, affecting emotional wellbeing and self-esteem—not to mention, you may be tired of staining your favourite clothes! The MiraDry delivers electromagnetic energy non-invasively to the sweat glands, eliminating them permanently. For best results, patients undergo 2 procedures 3 months apart. Each appointment typically lasts about an hour, and there is minimal downtime if any. According to a recent clinical study, average underarm sweat reduction was 82%!
