Juvederm | A history In 1934, medical researchers Karl Meyer and John Palmer, scientists at Columbia University in New York, found that one of the chief functions of hyaluronic acid is maintaining skin volume and hydration, along with other body maintenance functions and tasks. Meyer and Palmer first isolated the substance from the eye of a cow and named hyaluronic acid by combining the Greek word for glass—hyalos—and the uronic sugar contained in hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid later found uses in the baking and food industry in the 1940s and, by the 1990s, found its way into the medical field for use in joint pain, treating wounds, eye surgery and, finally, in 1996, for facial tissue augmentation in Europe.

Botox | A history More than any other procedure, botulinum toxin type A, more commonly known as Botox, has come to represent the public’s fascination with cosmetic surgery. Originally identified as a toxin from Clostridium botulinum bacteria, Botox was first used in 1977 to treat strabismus, a problem with the eye muscles. The Food and Drug Administration approved it in 1989 for this purpose. When it was later used to treat uncontrolled muscle spasms in the face, patients had fewer wrinkles in the skin overlying the treated muscle. Doctors started using Botox for cosmetic reasons in 1996, and the FDA approved this use in 2002.

Ottawa | Owen Sound | Brantford | Collingwood | Orillia Imagine having clearer, more radiant skin. 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.
Intense Pulsed Light treatments (or I.P.L.) use light to rejuvenate your skin and effectively treat age spots, freckles, and red spider veins. What makes our IPL treatments different? Our staff recognize the importance of safety and comfort. We use an incremental approach, gradually increasing the energy settings with successive monthly treatments. Brown spots and vessels fade away and collagen becomes remodeled leaving you with rejuvinated skin. After a course of I.P.L. treatments clients often comment that they no longer feel the need to cover their skin with makeup!
How does I.P. L. work? The light from the I.P.L. is absorbed into the colour of the brown spot or red vein. The heat from the light then destroys the spot or vein.
Is the procedure painful? The light pulses feel like snaps of little elastic bands. We apply a freezing gel to the skin to help diminish the discomfort to our clients.
What will my skin look like right after a treatment? Your skin will have some pinkness and will be a little puffy. A few hours later you will be able to apply makeup.
