Chemical peels will achieve results using glycolic acid, lactic acid (AHA’s) or other mild acids of varying strengths to peel off the stratum corneum, where as a microdermabrasion will do this physically. It is also a very effective way to improve texture, tone, acne breakouts or age spots. Peels are known to leave you with a healthy glow and the softest skin.
Matrix RF Skin Resurfacing
Matrix RF™ is the world’s first, RF only, sublative rejuvenation device! We are very proud to be the exculsive provider in the Okanagan! It is a unique fractional procedure, which uses radio frequency to deliver an effective but controlled ablative fractional treatment. Each pulse delivers the radio frequency energy via a grid of matrix spots or “Microthermal Treatment Zones”, inducing a skin injury, which is maximized in these tiny, targeted areas. Fibroblasts activated within the “zones” signal collagen to regenerate and remodel, yielding improved skin tone and overall texture. Meanwhile, the surrounding “untreated” tissue then helps to support and accelerate the healing process in the skin.
Dermapen is ideal for non-surgical and non-ablative treatment of various skin conditions such as aging (wrinkles, loose skin), scarring (acne, surgical), photodamage, and hyperpigmentation. Clinical studies have shown microneedle therapy to be very effective in stimulating collagen and elastin production to thicken the skin thereby reducing wrinkles and smoothing scars. This treatment will dramatically increase the effectiveness of skin care products, through improved penetration of nutrients and vitamins into the active layers of the skin. We offer cosmetic rollers which are for personal, home use and a medical treatment performed in the clinic to obtain quicker results.
