With almost 20 years of experience in performing anti-aging treatments at The Best You, we have learned a lot.
Women and men alike trust us, because we provide results that give them the appearance they are looking for. Our surgical options are impressive, no doubt about that, and we also offer our clients a variety of non- surgical skincare options to achieve amazing results.
Here are our top 6 procedures for summertime non-surgical positive aging outcomes.
1. The Liquid Facelift
Many patients will use a combination of dermal fillers and Neurotoxins like Botox and Dysport, for what is often referred to as a “Liquid Facelift“. Though temporary, the use of fillers and neurotoxins can provide astounding results that are instant and easily done in one quick trip to the office.
Neurotoxins are the number one cosmetic procedure in the world, for men and women, and has held that title for several years. It is no wonder as treatment is quick, easy and there’s no down-time involved. And of course…it is incredibly effective.
This anti-aging treatment works by allowing the facial muscles to relax which results in the disappearance of wrinkles, lines, and even deep furrows, such as crow’s feet and frown lines.
Like neurotoxins, dermal fillers are non-invasive and offer instant results with no downtime. Dermal fillers work by filling in lines and wrinkles in the face to restore facial rejuvenation.
Most dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the skin, and can smooth all wrinkles from fine to deep by being injected into areas where collagen has been lost.
Dermal fillers can also restore lost volume in the mid-face which occurs over time. The most popular option for volume restoration is Juvederm Voluma. This injectable last up to 2 years and can be used to sculpt more defined cheekbones as well.
2. Venus Freeze (RF Skin Tightening)
Venus Freeze treatments use pulsed magnetic fields and radio frequency to heat the skin consistently and uniformly from the inside out, without the threat of laser burns. The collagen fibers heat up resulting in skin tightening to attain exceptional results.
Venus Freeze treatments are non-invasive and painless, with many patients comparing the treatment to a hot-stone massage! The treatment is also very quick and effortless– only 30 minutes for the face (Venus Freeze for Face).
Venus Freeze (MP)² works by incorporating Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Magnetic Pulsed Fields into one device and delivering it safely and effectively to the patient.
Skin tightening, wrinkle reduction occurs because the multi-polar radio frequency causes a thermal response in the tissue which activates the body`s natural healing response.
That healing response causes new collagen to form, new elastin fibers and the production of fibroblasts to increase. The existing collagen in the skin contracts (this causes the skin to look and feel firmer) and the elastin fibers unravel (which makes the skin more elastic).
PRP may sound like something straight out of a science-fiction novel. It uses the body’s own plasma in many non-surgical anti-aging procedures. Plasma is the liquid portion of whole blood and platelets are blood cells that cause blood to clot and other growth healing functions.
PRP is applied topically with treatments such as micro-needling, often called a vampire facial or injected into the tissue, often called a vampire facelift. It rejuvenates the skin by promoting collagen and elastin growth, to make skin tighter and smoother. This entire procedure takes about 45 minutes to one hour.
Intense Pulsed Light treatments use broad spectrum non-invasive light to rejuvenate your skin and effectively treat the brown spots and visible blood vessels that we see with sun damage and rosacea. And as a bonus, with multiple treatments, it leads to collagen remodeling and smoother skin.
By removing old skin, new layers can grow in its place resulting in a brighter, clearer, more youthful looking complexion. Chemical peels are very popular with people who want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, brown spots and acne.
6. Pharmaceutical Grade Skin Care
No way around it. People who have good looking, youthful, healthy skin are people who also are willing to put the work in. Every day. That’s why it is called routine. An essential pharmaceutical grade skincare routine is as important as your essential workout routine for health and well-being.
Here are the basic the steps of an essential anti-aging routine you can do at home. The items and sequence of product order may vary based upon the skincare brand you choose your skin condition and your commitment level. Be sure and give each product a moment to dry between application.
Cleansers – to remove any residual night cream and clean out impurities in the morning; to remove make-up and environmental grime from the day
Toners or astringent – to replenish skin through hydration and remove dead cells, makeup and dirt left behind after cleansing; to rebalance skin’s PH level; to tone and tighten pores.
Exfoliator – to slough off any dead skin cells (couple of times a week)
Antioxidant Serum – Vitamin C is a workhorse helping to boost sun protection, fight off free radicals and environmental toxins, and give the skin an overall glow
Eye Cream – to moisturize and minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Choose an eye cream with Vitamins and Peptides to achieve the most amazing results
Moisturizers or Hydrator – to deliver moisture and retain moisture; to create a barrier that keeps oil from escaping and harmful outside elements from irritating skin
Sunscreen – to protect your skin from the damage of sun exposure with a broad-spectrum screen to guard against both UVA and UVB rays.
Is Pharmaceutical Grade Skincare Worth it?
The major difference in over-the-counter skincare versus pharmaceutical grade skincare is the potency and strength of active ingredients. Any type of pharmaceutical grade product must pass through the scrutiny of the FDA/Health Canada with controlled trials to be proven safe and effective.
Pharmaceutical grade products provide many benefits as they contain higher levels of such active ingredients as antioxidants, retinols, and peptides. Because of their clinical nature and strength, these skincare lines provide more noticeable results than over the counter brands sold in stores.
Pharmaceutical-grade skincare like Vivier Pharma has invested in clinical research to guarantee that their products work, using highly stabilized ingredients that last longer and take longer to degrade.
Another key advantage is an effective delivery method for the active ingredients to penetrate the skin. Our skincare products are designed with advanced technologies specifically to penetrate deeper down to dermal levels healing and improvement can happen.
It typically takes less product to achieve the results you desire with medical grade skincare, so it turns out to be a superior product for better outcomes at a better value. Investing in a pharmaceutical-grade product for your skin pays off in the long run as part of your overall goal toward an effective anti-aging treatment strategy.
