How to Reduce Signs of Aging on Your Neck

How to Reduce Signs of Aging on Your Neck

By | Treatments | No Comments

It happens to many of us; unexpectedly one day, we start noticing signs of ageing, such as loose skin and wrinkle lines. Not only are these signs of ageing, but they can also be caused by sun damage, weight loss, and genetics. Although ageing can’t be reversed, the signs of ageing can be addressed. Most signs of ageing can be addressed before they worsen and become more severe. If you’re self-conscious about age lines and skin laxity, you can address them early on before the lines become more profound and require surgical solutions instead. Being proactive and taking steps early on will help avoid you having to go under the knife. Forma is a non-surgical option for dealing with signs of ageing and is quick, easy, and convenient. Here are more details on the treatment.

What is Forma?

Forma is a revolutionary wrinkle treatment that uses radiofrequency energy and heat to stimulate collagen in the skin tissues. The heat contracts the skin to achieve tightening, smoothing, and reduction of wrinkles. Forma works safely on all skin types and delivers maximum results. Forma lifts the face and neck explicitly. This includes the forehead, crow’s feet, the brows, and areas like bags under the eyes, while lines on the neck area will be reduced and the neck lifted.

How does Forma work?

During the treatment, radiofrequency energy is used to stimulate the production of new collagen, which is the protein that keeps your skin looking young, and tightens the layers of the skin in the process. The device sustains a temperature between 41°C and 43°C, which encourages the body to produce better collagen and tighten the skin layers. The procedure does not harm or damage your skin. A bonus is that it’s not painful at all and can be described as a warm massage in the affected area.

Benefits of Forma

You will notice immediate improvements in your skin texture, tightness, and a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment accelerates collagen production with the application of a thermal wrinkle treatment and is also safe for all skin types as well. This treatment will give you the confidence to wear sleeveless tops, shorts, and bathing suits again without being self-conscious. Not only is the treatment effective, but it is also painless and non-invasive. You will have a brighter and more evened out tone of skin contour. You won’t need to go through an expensive surgery in order to get results and will have little to no downtime.

When should a person consider treatment?

This procedure is completely safe, which means there is no age limit to this treatment.

This treatment is always advised to be done at an early stage, as it works best on the early signs of ageing. If you have significant signs of ageing and have lost a great deal of elasticity, you may need to combine additional, more invasive treatments.

What should I expect to happen during the procedure?

First, make an appointment with a specialist to consult about the treatment and see if it’s the best option for you. A professional will be able to examine you and tell you how many sessions you may need. Forma encourages natural collagen production, so six weekly or bi-weekly treatments are usually suggested based on your requirements.

What about recovery and side effects?

The good thing about Forma, besides the dramatic results, is that it is a non-invasive procedure and doesn’t cause any bruising or pain. This means that there’s no recovery period required and no downtime. Similarly, there are no side effects, which will allow you to carry on with your normal routine as usual right after treatment. There aren’t any restrictions that you need to follow during the treatment period. After the procedure, you should avoid overexposure to the sun and restrict alcohol consumption and smoking, all of which add to the effects of the ageing process.

You will see the results immediately after treatment with Forma, and its effects are long-lasting. It can increase up to 20% of your collagen production, so its results are significant. Consult a professional to see if you require follow-up sessions since the treatment doesn’t stop the ageing process.

Since Forma is such a convenient procedure, it has become a popular treatment option. Book an appointment today with your specialist to treat your skin and prevent further signs of ageing. It’s never too early to treat early signs of ageing, as the more severe and significant are the number of wrinkles, the harder it will be to treat.

Pros and Cons of Non-Surgical Skin Tightening

Pros and Cons of Non-Surgical Skin Tightening

By | Treatments | No Comments

Non-surgical procedures have become a phenomenon recently, and skin tightening is another procedure that has become available. We all want to look youthful and confident, and many are looking to cosmetic procedures to improve the way they look. Thanks to advanced technology and science, achieving a youthful glow without going under the knife is now possible. Non-surgical skin tightening is quickly gaining popularity as it provides a youthful look with non-invasive procedures. 

FORMA skin tightening are non-surgical procedures that help achieve firmer and more youthful-looking skin. FORMA generates new collagen by using radiofrequency energy and heat, which contracts the skin to achieve tighter and smoother skin. This method offers consistent outcomes while providing safe results. You will have improved texture as well tighter and smoother skin without any surgical processes.

FORMA is a wrinkle treatment specifically to lift the face and neck. This includes the forehead, crow’s feet, the brows, as well as under the eyes. Lines on the neck area will be reduced, and the neck will be lifted. FORMA treatments are for other larger areas of the body like the upper arm area, the knees, inner thighs and the abdomen.

What to Consider 

Before you get the procedure done, there are some things to consider. First, think about the areas that you want to be treated. Many consider non-surgical skin tightening after losing a significant amount of weight. The procedure helps improve the quality of skin without having to go under the knife. The procedure is also fairly quick and will have little to no downtime so you can get back to your busy schedule in no time.

The Pros and Cons

With surgery, it will take some time for you to recover. You need to factor in time for consultations, time to prepare for procedures, and most importantly, time to recover. Surgery can take a few hours or all day, depending on the type of procedure and how many you are getting done. It can leave you out of commission for a few weeks or even longer. Even when you can go back to your regular schedule, you may need to avoid any strenuous activities for even longer.

With non-surgical skin tightening, the procedure can be done in an office within minutes with minimal discomfort or downtime. There is almost no downtime which allows you to get on with your regular activities in no time. The benefits of this non-surgical procedure are that it is painless and easy. There is minimal discomfort, but some may experience the feeling of warmth on the skin or a feeling of tightness during the treatment. 

Most radiofrequency treatments allow patients to return to their schedules immediately. There is no risk from laser light, so radiofrequency tightening can be done on all skin colours and without posing any risks to the eyes. This means that under-eye areas can be easily treated effectively.

With radiofrequency thermal treatments with FORMA, patients will notice improvements in their skin condition. 

They will experience smoother and tightened skin, improved fine lines and wrinkles, and accelerated collagen production. The results are also long-lasting with little to no downtime. Most importantly, the procedure won’t break the bank! 

With non-surgical treatments, it often requires multiple sessions in order to achieve the best results. It’s important for patients to understand that results will not always be immediate, but the short wait will be worth it once results start to appear. With FORMA, some patients that have minimal issues can see dramatic results with just one treatment. Some might need a few additional treatments over a 6-8 week period to achieve the results they want. Most will see immediate results depending on the area being treated as well as the severity of the area. 

Another benefit of non-surgical skin tightening is that the results are long-lasting when performed properly on the patient. As with all types of procedures, results will vary depending on the individual and the severity of their skin. This is why it is important to find a professional and experienced specialist. The consultation is also very important as you can discuss with your specialist what you want to be done in order to get the results you want. 

Book an appointment today with your specialist to treat your skin and prevent further signs of ageing. It’s never too early to treat early signs of ageing. As the more severe and significant amount of wrinkles there are, the harder it will get to treat.

8 Easy Wrinkle Treatment Hacks

8 Easy Wrinkle Treatment Hacks

By | Treatments | No Comments

We all want to keep a youthful glow, and it’s best to start a preventative skincare routine early to prevent wrinkles and fine lines from forming. It can be scary to deal with them when they suddenly do creep up on you, but it’s not necessary to dish out an obscene amount of money on expensive creams or spa treatments. Here are eight natural treatment hacks and home techniques to help your skin look brighter and reduce the signs of wrinkles and acne. 

1. Oils

Oils are a great way to keep your skin moisturized and plump. Coconut oil can prevent the formation of free radicals, which are one of the primary causes of early ageing, as it is rich in antioxidants. It can also help reduce and treat wrinkles that may have already developed because coconut oil is a natural skin-softening moisturizer that contains emollient. 

Massage into your skin each night before bed to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while you sleep. Olive oil can also be used as a moisturizer because it’s rich in antioxidants, and vitamins A and E, which also help to fight the skin-damaging free radicals. It also works to protect against sun damage and after exposure. Take a dime-sized amount and rub it into your skin twice a day to help moisturize and restore your skin.

2. Sleep

Sleep is always important for overall good health, especially when it comes to wrinkle reduction. Sleep helps you grow body tissue that helps regenerate skin and will also increase your production of cortisol. That means an increase in wrinkles because cortisol slows down the growth needed to get rid of wrinkles. The position you sleep in matters and sleeping on your back is much better for your skin as sleeping on your side or stomach can lead to wrinkles on the face.

3. Aloe Vera

Most people know that aloe vera is a miracle plant. The clear gel inside the plant has wound-healing and soothing effects when applied to the skin. It’s most commonly known for its use as after-sun care cream, thanks to the vitamins and minerals it contains. It’s an inexpensive investment to have an aloe vera plant inside your home or growing in your garden rather than buying the gel. The leaves regrow after they’re cut or removed from the base. Sunburns are one of the quickest ways to damage and wrinkle skin, so applying gel can ease the healing process with its anti-inflammatory properties.

4. Protect yourself from the sun

Vitamin D is necessary for strong bones, and we absorb vitamin D from the sun. However, the same sun that feeds us vitamin D also allows UV rays to harm our skin and increase our wrinkles. Since vitamin D can be found in food and supplements, it’s best to lessen sun exposure to keep skin looking young and smooth.

When you’re in the sun, wear clothes that keep your skin protected or apply sunscreen. Try using a sunscreen with at least SPF 45. Sunglasses are also important since constantly squinting causes those fine wrinkles around the eyes called crow’s feet. Hats are also helpful. Wide-brimmed hats allow the face to stay protected from direct sunlight.

5. Don’t wash too much

It’s important to gently wash makeup and dirt off your face before bed, however, it’s also important not to wash your skin too much. Washing too often, especially with soaps that contain caustic chemicals, dries skin out and strips it of the oil it needs to stay moist and smooth. Even minus the soap, most water coming from the tap still has the ability to dry out skin.

6. Vitamin C

Our bodies don’t store Vitamin C, which means that we have to make sure we are getting enough each day. A great way to do that is to consume foods that are high in vitamin C, like pineapple and citrus.

Collagen is known to be great for skin and nails. Vitamin C is essential for collagen production, so we must have it in our bodies to have skin that is pliable and avoid wrinkles. As you age, the amount of vitamin C in your skin reduces. By replenishing your skin’s vitamin C levels through an oral supplement or exfoliating with topical vitamin C every morning, you can repair sun damage, such as discoloration and fine lines. Sometimes vitamin C can cause dryness or flaking, which can be treated with a daily moisturizer right after applying vitamin C.

7. Get an eyetest

Squinting, either due to poor eyesight or exposure to the sun, causes wrinkles. Those crow’s feet grow deeper every time our eyes make the repetitive motion of squinting. Plus, squinting involves more than just our eye muscles, so it increases wrinkles all over the face. If you need them, buy a pair of prescription glasses or contact lenses and wear them when you’re instructed to. Prescription sunglasses are also a must have since they will keep squinting at bay.

8. Beware of makeup

When shopping for products, choose products that don’t contain alcohol to dry out your skin. Also, be careful of where you place makeup since concealer or base used to cover wrinkles may actually make them look deeper.

Beauty Trends in 2019

Beauty Trends in 2019

By | Treatments | No Comments

Beauty trends are always changing and it’s easier than ever before to get procedures that can change your appearance without having to get surgery. Everything from smoothing wrinkles to slimming hips, beauty trends are always evolving and advancing. With technology advancing and the increased awareness through social media, the stigma around getting procedures done to alter your features is slowly fading away. Social media has made it easier for individuals to see and understand the world of medical aesthetics and allowing those interested in procedures to research and look into the different types of treatments that are available. The idea of plastic surgery used to be criticized on social media, but has since changed, as feeds are now filled with before and after photos. There has been a spike in the popularity of cosmetic treatments and here are a few trends on the rise for 2019.

Preventative Injections

Wrinkle-smoothing injections like Botox and fillers have become extremely popular, and are the most common non-invasive cosmetic treatment on the rise. They have become a huge trend in the medical-aesthetics field currently and they are only getting more advanced and popular. Many people are looking for short and minimally-invasive treatments with low-downtime that will make them look refreshed almost instantly. The age of patients seeking injectables is getting younger and younger, especially now that people are interested in the preventable benefits. It’s more beneficial to prevent wrinkles and signs of aging rather than treating them once they have already happened. Once wrinkles start appearing and have settled in, it can be difficult to get rid of them.

Botox and Xeomin are two of the most popular preventative injectables. They both work in similar ways to temporarily freeze the facial muscles and treat the lines formed from repetitive facial movements like squinting and smiling. Xeomin is a very purified form of botulinum toxin, meaning that the body is less likely to develop tolerance to it over time. Be aware that results do vary based on the patient and the severity of their wrinkles. Consider booking a consultation if you start to see wrinkles appear.

Evolution of Lip Fillers

Lip fillers have always been a popular beauty trend (yes, even before Kylie Jenner became famous), and have been steadily on the rise. In 2019, patients are now more interested in naturally-contoured lips rather than full on glam. When it comes to achieving natural-looking results, nothing does the trick quite like Juvéderm Volbella XC, a hyaluronic acid-based injectable that subtly plumps lips while also softening the appearance of marionette lines. It produces softer results without the tell-tale signs of lip fillers.

Doctors now prefer to gradually build up to the desired effect with appropriately spaced out sessions rather than injecting a large dose all at once. Treatments can last up to 12 months if done correctly, but it’s important to keep in mind that the results will vary by patient.

Body Contouring

Non-invasive procedures to eliminate fat and tighten the skin are gaining popularity. Emsculpt has become a popular method in the field of body contouring. While a variety of treatments target fat cells, Emsculpt also helps to define muscle tone. It contours through the elimination of fat and circumferential reduction, compared to current body shaping techniques that fail to address muscles.

The treatment utilizes highly-focused electromagnetic energy to trigger supra-maximal contractions. It is approximately 20,000 muscle contractions during a half-hour session. Emsculpt allows muscles to contract in a way that’s not possible through exercise. The contractions result in a rapid metabolic reaction in cells to strengthen and build muscle, while also breaking down fat. There is little to no downtime associated with the procedure, which makes it extremely popular. The ability to stimulate your muscles and burn fat without breaking a sweat is definitely appealing, although you may just feel a bit sore, the way you would after an intense workout. Emsculpt is approved for use on the abdomen and buttocks and is best suited for individuals with a lower BMI. It is more ideal for those who want to improve muscle definition and fat-reduction in hard-to-target areas.

In order to achieve the best outcome, patients are encouraged to schedule a minimum of four half-hour treatments, no more than two to three days apart. This can cost you anywhere from $3,000 to $4,000 in total. It’s important to continue a healthy lifestyle to maintain results. With any weight loss or strength training program, you can gain fat back or lose muscle tone if you don’t keep a healthy lifestyle or continue training.

Clearview MediSpa, located in Toronto, provides state-of-the-art services to enhance your appearance and restore the confidence you may have lost along the way. We provide everything from wrinkle treatments to facials, peels, and more. To learn more about Clearview MediSpa, give us a call at 416-445-2639 or contact us here.

The Forma Magic: Making Mature Skin Look Younger Than Ever

The Forma Magic: Making Mature Skin Look Younger Than Ever

By | Treatments | No Comments

You’re beautiful at any age, but it’s hard to feel that way on some days. Past a certain age, the skin changes, causing a loss of laxity and sagging as well as wrinkles and fine lines. They say life starts at 40 but for women dealing with these inevitable signs of ageing, it can feel like quite the opposite.

The good news is, there’s no shortage of anti-ageing treatments; from multi-step skincare routines all the way to cosmetic surgery, women all over Toronto can definitely find the perfect treatment for their needs. But what if there was an anti-ageing treatment that’s just right in the middle of these two options? Enter the Forma skin treatment. Using cutting-edge technology, Forma applies radiofrequency energy to the most common problem areas riddled with wrinkles and sagging skin, resulting in a perfect lift and toned appearance — but without the surgery.

Ready to roll back the years to look and feel your best again? Find out why the train stops here with Forma skin treatment:

What is Forma?

Forma is the latest non-invasive skin treatment to debut that uses radiofrequency to improve the elasticity of the skin and promote collagen production. The result is healthy, younger-looking skin in no virtually no time!

In the past, laser skin treatments weren’t suited for all skin types, but not anymore. Forma is designed to treat all skin types, meaning it is both safe and effective no matter the skin tone.

Total Body Rejuvenation

When we think of anti-ageing, it’s common to focus on crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and fine lines, but there are more signs on the rest of the body. In fact, wrinkles and loose skin are also common on the arms, known as “bat wings”, abdomen, and knees. The regular Forma treatment targets the forehead, upper eyelids, lower eyelids, smile lines, jowls, and neck, while the Pro version takes care of the entire body. The result is tight skin and a toned appearance all over.

The Science Behind Forma

There’s a reason why the Forma skin treatment is revolutionary: it’s all in the technology. Each Forma skin treatment delivers radio frequency and heat deep in the layers of the skin to stimulate the production of new collagen as this depletes over time, causing loose and sagging skin. The gentle heat causes the layers of the skin to contract and tighten loose skin. The result is a toned, younger-looking appearance from your twenties and thirties that didn’t seem possible until now.

Because the Forma uses radio frequency and heat to treat the signs of ageing, it’s a completely non-invasive procedure with virtually no downtime. While it’s normal to see slight redness in treated areas, this easily subsides within a few hours. In just 6 weekly sessions, you can already observe great changes in your skin as fine lines quickly ease up; plus, if skin laxity or sagging skin is only mild, you may even achieve the refreshed and youthful appearance you desire in fewer treatments.

Is Forma skin treatment right for me?

Whether you’re tired of following a multi-step skincare routine and feel like you’re getting nowhere with this tedious treatment, or you’re unsure about undergoing extensive and invasive cosmetic treatments, it’s time to consider the benefits of Forma. But is it right for you?

Forma is the perfect anti-ageing skin treatment for people dealing with various skin problems, such as texture irregularities, uneven skin tone, and most importantly, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Forma works to target these issues using radio frequency and gentle heat in order to tighten skin, improve its appearance, and give your entire body a much-needed lift and toning. The result is smooth, tightened skin that better highlights the natural contours of your body. Forma can be used to treat wrinkles and loose, sagging skin in the arms, abdomen, and legs — making it a perfect addition to Forma treatments on the facial area, and giving you younger-looking skin and a beautiful glow all over your body.

During Your Forma Skin Treatment

Unlike other skin treatments, Forma requires virtually no preparation. To start, your consultation at a clinic will determine how many treatments you need in order to ease the signs of ageing and restore younger-looking skin. The number of treatments required will depend on the degree of laxity in your skin, as well as the pronouncements of other irregularities, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and stretch marks.

Before starting your Forma skin treatment, a cool conductive gel will be applied to the area being treated. This allows safe and effective contact between the Forma device and your skin, and ensures optimal delivery of radio frequency and heat to the deepest layers of aged skin in the arms, thighs, back, and abdomen. It’s normal to feel a hot sensation on the treated area as radio frequency and heat are applied and work to tighten skin and give you that much-needed lift, but this is perfectly safe and not at all uncomfortable.

This process takes about 15 minutes for every part of the treated area, and afterwards, a cool towel will be placed on it to wash away the gel and cool the skin. Cream and sunscreen may also be applied to protect the area as you step out and lock in the skin tightening and lifting effects of each treatment.

Countless patients are happy and satisfied after every Forma skin treatment. That’s because the gentle heat is refreshing and relaxing, just like getting a massage — but looking years younger once your sessions are completed. If you’re looking to speed up the process and get the best results possible, it’s important to know that Forma is perfectly safe to combine with other skin treatments, such as Botox, fillers, laser treatments, and facials. Just make sure to run these by your doctor, so they can plan out your treatments accordingly.

5 Ways To Look And Feel Your Best In 2016

5 Ways to Look and Feel Your Best in 2016

By | Advice, Treatments | No Comments

It’s hard to believe that 2016 is already here! A new year is full of hope, promise, and new beginnings, as everyone begins to work towards fulfilling new years resolutions. The majority of you may have made resolutions related to health and wellness. Are we right? While everyone makes resolutions (health related or not), the majority of these resolutions tend to be broken a few months into the year. This year, that is all about to change.

Here are 5 steps to help you look and feel your best this year, as well as some simple tricks to help you stick to these steps, year-round!

  1. Eat Clean

We all live busy lifestyles, and it often seems easier to order take out, delivery, or munch on junk food rather than make the effort to prepare healthy food. As you may have encountered, eating poorly can make you feel tired, and can lead to several chronic diseases. In order to make sure you stick to your goals, make a plan for yourself. If you are planning on eating out, choose a place with healthy alternatives. Toronto has a large selection of restaurants with healthy options. Give one of these 10 healthy restaurants a try the next time you are planning an outing with your friends and family in Toronto. Making a meal plan for the upcoming week will also help you eat healthier, as well as save money! Just remember, don’t be so hard on yourself. Rather, celebrate all your successes and continue chasing your goals.

  1. Exercise Regularly

Exercising regularly, partnered with eating healthier, are the most popular resolutions made by North Americans every year. Being physically active can help you reach your dream body goals, as well as keep your body and mind in top shape. Integrating a quick workout into your daily routine is a simple way of making sure you stick with your goals. Try incorporating exercises right as you wake up, before your shower, during your lunch break, or before bedtime. While going to the gym 5 days a week is a great form of exercise, is that a realistic goal for you? If so, go for it! If not, consider other forms of exercise that you can actually stick to all year-round. Alternatively, choose exercises that appeal to you, such as dance classes, yoga or sports. Exercising helps you keep your bones strong, build muscle, reduce body fat, and much more; so make it fun and stick to it!

  1. Reduce, Tighten and Shape

Everyone has those problem areas that seem impossible to get rid of, even with exercise and healthy eating. Luckily, there are 2 procedures that may be just what you need to help start the year with your dream body. Body TITE is a minimally invasive procedure that provides body firming results and reduces fat in those areas that you are unhappy with. This procedure reduces fat, tightens the skin, and reduces cellulite in problem areas such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, knees back and arms. RFAL technology is used to remove excess fat through a small incision, ultimately leading to body tightening of up to 40%. The best part is that results can be seen immediately, with best results noticeable after 6-12 weeks!

Alternatively, Body FX is a painless non-surgical treatment that helps reduce fat and provide a more toned body. This treatment uses vacuum massage to melt away fat cells in many areas of the body, including the lower and upper abdomen, inner and outer thighs, the buttocks, the back, and bra line. There is virtually no recovery time with Body FX, and the results are permanent if you continue your exercise regime, and eat healthy.

  1. Reverse Signs of Aging

It may be a new year, but your face doesn’t need to show it! Treatments such as dermal fillers and fractora can help you achieve a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers are injected into different areas of the face to add volume and correct various cosmetic issues. The injections require zero downtime, and the results typically last for several months. Fillers can be used to fill in fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and more.

Fractora skin rejuvenation is a skin treatment that uses radio-frequency energy to stimulate collagen production, leading to a more youthful look. Results include a more even skin tone and texture, tighter pores, smoother and firmer skin and reduced wrinkles. Consider this your radio frequency facial!

  1. Reduce Stress

While you may think that you work better under a little stress and it makes you more productive, stress negatively impacts your health. Stress can give you headaches, make you feel fatigued, lead to overeating or undereating, and a lack of motivation. Make it your resolution to not only start 2016 stress-free, but continue to cut down your stress levels all year long.  Some simple ways to reduce your stress include exercising regularly, eating a healthy diet, and spending time with friends, family, and loved ones.

 

At Clearview MediSpa, we would like to help you meet all your resolutions and body goals by providing you with customized, state-of-the-art treatments. We hope that 2016 is your best year yet, and you look and feel your best all year long. Book your free personalized consultation today to get started!

 

 

Gift Idea: His And Hers Procedure

Gift Idea: His and Hers Procedures

By | Cosmetic Procedures, Treatments | No Comments

It’s that time of year again. Christmas décor and holiday lights have taken over everywhere you go, Christmas songs and carols play on every radio station and in every store, and the holiday shopping rush is in full swing. With the fun parties and family get-togethers also comes the struggle of finding the perfect holiday gift for your significant other. This year, why not try something different?

Couple activities drive the spirit of togetherness and strengthen ties among each other. This year, treat yourself and your significant other to a couple makeover. This shared experience will allow you both to address the aesthetic concerns that may have been bothering you for some time, while also strengthening your bond.

Take a look at our list of the best couple makeover treatments:

Body Contouring

Both men and women have those problem areas that they just can’t seem to get rid of with regular exercise and healthy eating. These procedures specifically target particular areas of the body to help you both fulfill your body goals:

  • Body TITE is a minimally invasive procedure that tightens and smooths the skin while also reducing fat all in one. This procedure works well for the abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, back and arms.
  • If all of the sit-ups and planks you have been doing have not been successful in tightening your midsection, Abdominoplasty (also known as tummy tuck) may be the perfect solution for you. This procedure involves the removal of excess skin and fat deposits from the midsection, while tightening weakened abdominal muscles. Finally, the remaining skin is pulled down to flatten and tighten the stomach.
  • Liposuction works well for areas that look out of proportion due to excess body fat. Deposits of fat are removed from the body using a process similar to vacuuming. Common areas of the body that respond well to liposuction are the abdomen, hips and thighs, buttocks, chest and neck, upper and lower back and calves and ankles.
  • If you are looking for a painless non-surgical treatment to reduce body fat, Body FX it is! Combining radio frequency energy pulses and heat together with vacuum massage, this treatment eliminates fat and tightens the skin to give you stunning body-contouring results. Treatments are once a week for approximately 45 minutes for up to 6 weeks, with virtually no recovery time.

Facial Rejuvenation

Perhaps visible signs of facial aging are more of a concern for you and your loved one. With age, wrinkles, facial folds and sagging skin slowly begin to appear. While it is impossible to turn back time, you can reverse the effects of aging with these procedures:

  • Dermal Fillers help hydrate and plump up the skin using a naturally occurring substance in the human body. This treatment smooths away fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars and may also be used to fill out cheeks that have a sunken-in look or plump up thin lips.
  • A minimally invasive alternative to the Face Lift, is Face Tite. This treatment eliminates fat or droopy areas of the face and neck using a radiofrequency technology. This short treatment will re-contour and tighten the skin of areas like the brow and cheek, neck area and jowls.
  • FORMA is non-surgical treatments that tighten, lift and improve the texture and smoothness of the skin by producing collages as well as contracting the skin.
  • Droopy eyelids and dark circles under your eyes may be adding years to your appearance. If that is the case, Blepharoplasty (also known as Eyelid Lift) is the right procedure for you. The procedure involves the removal of excess skin and/or the removal of fat from the upper and/or lower eyelids for a more youthful, energetic appearance.

Mix and Match

Of course, you and your significant other do not need to undergo the same procedure. Maybe you are more interested in eliminating signs of sun damage and aging, while your loved one has always wanted to get rid of the extra skin on their arms. Feel free to mix and match treatments to fit your specific needs and goals.

Cosmetic Procedures at Clearview MediSpa

This holiday season, share the experience of a lifetime with your loved one by growing younger and more confident together. Knowing what the other is feeling from pre-treatment, to post-treatment, to recovery, will strengthen your bond and leave you feeling closer than ever. Contact Clearview MediSpa today to book your free consultation and get started on your couples transformation!

 

Relive Your Youth With Fillers

Relive Your Youth with Fillers

By | Cosmetic Procedures, Treatments | No Comments

We all know that aging is a natural part of life. With age comes wisdom, knowledge and experience.  Unfortunately with age, we also tend to lose much of the volume of facial muscle, causing the skin to sag and wrinkle. While you may have taken great care of your skin and avoided all wrinkle-inducing habits throughout your youth, wrinkles and sagging skin are bound to happen. However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t do everything in your power to fight them off!

You have probably heard of and are quite familiar with Botox, but have you heard of the, slightly less famous, but equally effective fillers? Dermal fillers help to regain the youth vitality of your skin by adding volume and rejuvenating the skin. This procedure requires zero downtime, and is effective for all skin types. Eager to fight the effects of aging? Let’s take a look at dermal fillers in more detail.

Benefits of Dermal Fillers

Fillers are a naturally-derived substance called hyaluronic acid, which is found in the human body. These treatments are directly injected into the skin in order to plump the area and eliminate wrinkles and fine lines. This treatment is relatively painless, and because it is natural there is no risk of allergic reaction. With zero downtime, you will be able to continue your daily routine while enjoying a more youthful appearance.

Treatment Areas and Procedure Details

Fillers are injected into a specific area of the skin and work well to treat a variety of regions. As mentioned previously, filling in fine lines and wrinkles is one of the most common reasons that patients opt for this treatment. Fillers can also be used to plump up thin lips to give them a full, luscious look. Pucker up, ladies! Other uses also include filling in acne scars, filling out cheeks that have a sunken-in look, and raising or accentuating eyebrows.

The treatment itself is minimally invasive and non-surgical. Results of this treatment are seen immediately, and usually last for several months. Though no downtime is required, follow-up visits usually are required to monitor progress and schedule future treatments. This procedure is quick and simple, making it easy to fit into a busy schedule!

What To Ask Before Your Next Procedure

What To Ask Before Your Next Procedure

By | Advice, Treatments | No Comments

Considering getting a little work done to look and feel your best? You are not alone! Whether for cosmetic or medical reasons, millions of people opt for plastic surgery to reach their desired results every year. Undergoing plastic surgery can be life changing, and you want to ensure you cross all your ‘t’s’ and dot all your ‘i’s’ before your procedure is under-way.

Be sure to ask these 10 vital questions at your next consultation:

  1. Are you a board certified plastic surgeon?
    • You want to ensure that your surgeon has the right training, and is qualified to perform plastic surgery. After all, this is your face and body we are talking about, and you want to be confident in your surgeon’s skills!
  2. How many years of plastic surgery training and experience do you have?
    • Whether you are undergoing a simple, or a more invasive procedure, the number of times your surgeon has performed the procedure is important. The more times a procedure has been performed, the more comfortable the surgeon will be with the procedure and it’s complexities, and the more comfortable you feel in your surgeon’s abilities and recommendations.
  3. Am I a good candidate for this procedure?
    • You have done your research and chosen the procedure that you believe is best for you. However, your surgeon is the expert and will be able to provide you with other options that may be more suitable for your objectives.
  4. How long will the procedure last?
    • Some procedures, such as Wrinkle Treatment, are quick and result in zero downtime. Abdominoplasty, on the other hand, may require an overnight stay, and follow-up visits are often necessary. Your surgeon will be able to provide you with more information, so you know how much time to book off work and other activities.
  5. How long is the recovery time, and what is expected of me before/after procedure?
    • I’m sure you’re anxious to continue your daily activities and start enjoying your results, so how long before you can get back to it? The recovery time will differ depending on the procedure. Upon consultation, your surgeon will provide you with a better estimate of recovery time, ensuring you take enough time off for a full and safe recovery. Be sure to ask your surgeon regarding preparations for before and after the surgery.
  6. What are the potential risks and complications associated with the procedure?
    • You want to be sure that you are aware of any possible risks, and how they are preventatively addressed.
  7. Where and how will the procedure be performed?
    • Will anesthesia be used? Will the procedure be performed in an office or hospital? Your surgeon will be able to inform you of all the details prior to the procedure so you feel comfortable and prepared. You will want to make all arrangements ahead of time, so everything runs smoothly on the day of your procedure.
  8. What is the total cost of the treatment?
    • As with any investment, you want to have a complete breakdown of all the costs you will incur before, during and after your procedure. Note, this is also a good time to ask your surgeon what financing options are available.
  9. Do you have any before and after photos of similar procedures?
    • Before and after photos will be able to provide you with a realistic idea of what you should expect after your procedure. Keep in mind, every person is individual and unique, and results may vary depending on factors including body type, age, etc.
  10. What are the possibilities in case of dissatisfaction?
    • We certainly hope that this is not the case, but in the event that you are not happy with your results, you will want to know all possible options that will lead to your satisfaction. If you are thorough in your questions prior to your procedure though, you will have realistic expectations of the results, and should be nothing but happy with the outcome!

Communicating openly with your plastic surgeon is the first step to ensuring whether plastic surgery is the right choice for you. Working together with your surgeon will help them understand your goals, expectations, and motivations; and ensure that the treatment selected will meet your expectations.

Your personalized consultation is a great time to ask any and all questions you may have about reaching your desired results. Feeling comfortable with the surgeon you have selected is the first step to the new you.

Discrete Procedures For Men

Discrete Procedures For Men

By | Cosmetic Procedures, Treatments | No Comments

Cosmetic procedures, once synonymous with female patients only, are now widely understood to be suitable for everyone. The amount of men turning to cosmetic procedures has actually increased dramatically over the past 5 years, with a 43% increase overall. Despite this increase, it is possible that some men still may not want others to know they have undergone a cosmetic procedure.

Call it pride, or call it privacy; regardless of the reason these men are in luck. There are cosmetic procedures available which, due to their minimally invasive nature and fast recovery time, are extremely discrete.

Here are a few procedures you can undergo, essentially under the radar. You will have everyone wondering how you suddenly look so good!

Wrinkle Treatment

Fine lines and wrinkles happen to the best of us. Laugh or smile lines around the mouth, frown or worry lines in between the eyes or across the forehead, and crow’s feet outside of the eyes are all very common. Luckily, you can quickly, and discretely, combat these signs of aging. Wrinkle treatment injections are administered to the problem areas, and effectively reduce muscle activity in that area, giving you a more youthful appearance that can last for several months! Injections are quick, relatively painless, and require absolutely no downtime.

Brow Lift

Sagging eyebrows, vertical frown lines between the eyebrows, and horizontal lines across the middle of the forehead can all make you look older and tired, even at your most refreshed! The brow lift procedure is designed to slightly raise the brow, and smooth out the forehead. Since incisions are strategically placed, no scarring is visible after the procedure. While there may be some swelling and bruising common to the recovery process, the brow lift is a completely outpatient surgery. A brow lift results in a more alert, and youthful appearance, and a more relaxed appearance of forehead lines. This procedure is often paired with blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid lift. While this may be a longer recovery time, it also means a greater transformation!

Face TITE

If you are experiencing fat or droopy areas on your face, the Face TITE procedure works to eliminate these issues, while contouring and firming at the same time. This minimally invasive procedure is an alternative to a full surgical facelift, without going under a surgeon’s knife, and without the recovery time! With Face TITE, there is minimal discomfort, and it is a relatively short treatment time, with immediate results of skin being lifted! This revolutionary technology uses a hand held device to apply heat just under the skin to produce more collagen. While you will see results right away, results will continue to improve over a six-week period as more collagen is produced, and skin continues to tighten!

Neck TITE

Have you ever heard the term “turkey neck”? If you have, you are probably already wondering how to address it. The Neck TITE procedure is the most advanced treatment to tighten the jaw and neck area. Similar to Face TITE, this procedure uses radio frequency energy technology to gently remove the fat and contour the skin in these troubled areas at the same time. As the new collagen forms, the results will continue to improve over the next 3 – 12 weeks after your procedure. Since the device used is designed specifically for the delicate areas of the neck and jaw, no scars will be left from the procedure. The best part of this Neck TITE, is that most patients need just one treatment to achieve their desired results!

BodyFX

Many minimally invasive procedures with low or no recovery time are designed to combat signs of aging on the face and neck: where others are most able to see our flaws. One procedure that affectively targets the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and back is BodyFX. This non-surgical treatment is used to reduce body fat, tighten skin, and even reduce cellulite. This is the best way to target any leftover fatty tissue, and give you a more toned, contoured body. Using a similar radio frequency energy technology as both Face TITE and Neck TITE, BodyFX is pain-free, safe, and convenient; treatments are approximately 45 minutes long, and can be administered once a week for up to 6 weeks. Results are permanent, and no one will catch on to your slowly shrinking problem areas.
