We strive to offer all of the treatments that are necessary to keep skin looking its best at all times. However, we do believe there is a right way to go about skin care. Nearly all of the treatments at our skin rejuvenation clinic are non-invasive. That means no surgery and no serious downtime to heal and recover. We want you to walk out of your appointment already feeling better.
All Types of Skin Care Solutions
You can find all sorts of skin care treatments at our Kelowna skin care clinic. We have so many treatments available that it’s often better just to start with your condition. Schedule an appointment to talk to us about what you need from your skin. We’ll tell you how we can best help.
This skin rejuvenating treatment is perfect for any conditions where you want to bring fresh young skin cells to the front, especially when the current surface cells are damaged or discolored. This simple procedure can be completed in little more than half-an-hour, and there’s usually no downtime involved at all for your normal activities. It’s a light treatment that can be effective at stimulating the growth of new collagen.
Lasers have part of a complete revolution in skin care over the past ten years, and DermMedica’s own Dr. Crippen has been in front of it the whole time. Today, DermMedica has almost a dozen different lasers available for use, and we can closely match the right one to the condition that is giving you trouble. Like all of our treatments, our laser treatments are non-invasive and have low recovery times.
Fillers and Injections
When improving the look of skin, sometimes more is needed than changing the color. We use fillers by injection to treat many common skin problems including wrinkles and volume issues. Botox and Juvederm are the fillers we use most commonly at the clinic, and we use them all over the face and body. Applications include treatment for thin lips, hyperhidrosis and many other conditions.
Skin Care Starts at Home
Skin care doesn’t start at the clinic doors. You can prevent a lot of problems and cultivate great skin just by maintaining strong daily habits.
Try our Recommended Products
There are skin care products out there that we are happy to recommend. You can find some of them posted right here on this site. Some of the excellent options include SkinMedica, Cellex-C and Elta-MD sunscreens.
Makeup that also has skin care benefits is the best of both worlds, and that’s just what you get with the Colorescience makeup and skin care products.
Make Sure You’re Protecting Your Skin.
You don’t even necessarily need products to have healthy skin. As long as you follow the right guidelines for healthy skin, you may be able to enjoy youthful looking skin into old age. Here are some of the things you should always remember for healthy skin:
Prepare for the Sun: Sun exposure is very likely the largest contributor to skin problems. It’s implicated in everything from rosacea to cancer, and any discoloration may be the result of sun damage. Protecting yourself from the sun begins with wearing the right protection. You should always be using the proper sunscreen for the weather, and staying out of direct sunlight when possible.
Watch for the Signs: Your skin is good at telling you what it needs. You should always pay close attention to the state of your skin and how it’s reacting to the different products you use. If you notice your skin is reddened, or itchy or dry, it could be a sign of a problem that needs to be addressed.
Address Problems Immediately: If you want to really care for your skin, you need to make sure that you’re having skincare problems addressed as soon as they show up. Some conditions are far easier to treat when they’re in the early stages.
