Red carpet treatments: take advantage of these 6 advancements in medical aesthetics
What do your favourite stars do to look so perfect in their designer dresses? How are their faces always camera ready? We often hear about cosmetic procedures gone wrong, but the truth is, most of them actually turn out beautifully, especially thanks to impressive advances in medical aesthetics. Maybe that’s why TV personality Katie Price swears by body contouring, Victoria Beckham is open about her laser hair removal, and Khloe Kardashian is a full-fledged fan of soft tissue fillers. If you’re ready to take the Toronto plastic surgery plunge, here are 6 noninvasive red carpet treatments that should not be ignored:
- Body contouring
Body contouring uses high-tech energy devices to reduce fat, build and tone muscle, and tighten overlying skin. The newest addition to our body contouring roster, EMsculpt, works from the muscle outward and is the only device that simultaneously kills fat (through high-intensity electromagnetic energy) and builds muscle by inducing over 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions per 30-minute session, exceeding the sort of stimulation possible via voluntary exercise. Combination treatments using other body contouring technologies including Coolsculpting, Sculpsure, Vanquish, BodyFX, or UltraShape are common: only SpaMedica offers so many options for the best possible results!
- Laser hair removal
Over a series of 5-6 laser hair removal treatments, patients with all skin types can expect to vastly reduce or eliminate unwanted body hair. We deploy and integrate up to 14 different lasers in combination to optimize the success and degree of your permanent hair reduction. During your consultation, we will analyze the variables of hair density, shaft diameter, follicular depth, skin type, and melanin concentration to determine which of our many laser hair removal systems is best suited to you!
- FotoFacials, fractional lasers, & Universkin
There has never before been a wider range of options for your skin-deep needs. Fotofacials pulse radiofrequency, intense pulsed light, and infrared energy gently onto the skin to target fine lines, spider veins, and irregularities, and fractional laser treatments do the same by sending laser energy through the skin where heating stimulates new collagen and elastin. And, since inflammatory skin conditions like rashes, itching, or blotchiness are incredibly common, cutting edge Universkin treatments target cells at their core to prevent and reverse these and many other skin problems: Dr. Mulholland will create your one-to-one serum by combining 3 pure and active ingredients in exactly the right concentration for your needs. This is medical aesthetics at its best!
- Soft tissue fillers and Botox Injectable
Botox Injectable treatments entail the injection of a purified protein into select areas of the face and neck to relax the muscles responsible for movement, thereby softening signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles. Meanwhile, hyaluronic acid soft tissue fillers are injected beneath the skin to provide contour and shape, and treat wrinkles and furrows as required. “Top-up” treatments can be undergone every year or so.
Excessive underarm sweating easily interferes in one’s work and social life. MiraDry is a safe, noninvasive procedure that uses electromagnetic energy to eliminate underarm sweat glands. Since your body contains over 4 million sweat glands and only about 2% are located in the underarms, the eliminated glands won’t affect your body’s ability to cool itself. For lasting results, 2 procedures spaced 3 months apart is recommended. Even those who do not sweat excessively may benefit!
Who doesn’t wish their cellulite away? Even celebrities like Kim Kardashian have admitted to being plagued by that “cottage cheese,” lumpy-looking just fat below the skin (typically on the butt and upper thighs). The revolutionary Cellfina is specially designed to improve the appearance of dimples and pitted skin associated with cellulite. How? A tiny micro probe is inserted and passed side-to-side, dividing the vertical band forming the dimple, and releasing the soft tissue, allowing your skin to literally bounce back and appear smooth again. Bonus: a single treatment lasts 3+ years!
