Giving Your Skin a Fresh Appearance

4 Skin Treatments to Make Your Skin Look Younger

Giving Your Skin a Fresh Appearance

A fresh appearance that defies the look of aging in a society of convenience, leaves many believing that the best fix is also the quickest fix. However, in order to turn back the hands of time, it actually takes time and the right skin treatments to do so.

Therefore, when it comes to the health of your skin, there is really no length of time that is too long, because with time comes routine and with routine comes positive change.

To aid you in navigating non-surgical skin treatments that focus on the natural creation of a youthful appearance, it is best to consider services that are supportive of a healthy lifestyle.

Just like how proper nutrition and working out leads to sustainable results, your skin needs proper care and exercise for it to be at its best too.

This is why holistic skin treatments that use medical grade knowledge—with 21st century technology—are becoming more popular, as they support the aging process as opposed to rejecting it altogether.

The Best Customized Facial Treatments

One of the top treatments to consider in your skincare journey are customized facial treatments. By consulting with a professional aesthetician, you both will be able to create a personalized routine that will give you the best results.

It is also important to understand that at-home personal care is what makes professional services last longer because they are result driven. So by combining healthy practices both internally (supplements, drinking water, and a good night’s rest), and externally (skin care and exercise) you’ll experience a much more noticeable and healthy appearance.

During your skin consultation, the best professional treatments that may be recommended are:

  • Microneedling – Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is one of the most effective anti-aging treatments available.

  • Facial Peels – Chemical Peels can be used as a single treatment, however multiple treatments will mean accelerated results.

  • Facials – The iS Clinical Fire & Ice Facial is a non-invasive service that lifts away dead skin with no after-treatment recovery required.

  • IPL Photo-rejuvenation – A “Photo-Facial” or a Photo Rejuvenation Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is defined as a service that uses intense pulse light and heat to help rejuvenate the skin from damage.


Microneedling is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) and is one of the most effective treatments available. Requiring a recovery time of approximately 48 hours, this treatment uses very fine needles that are regulated by an Innopen machine that helps control the depth of micro-channels created, catered to different skin conditions.

These channels are what targets layers of the skin depending on the desired outcome; i.e., to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, scars, pore size, pigmentation, stretch marks, and even limit hair loss.

Microneedling is a number one alternative face-lift procedure that plastic surgeons most often recommend. This is a very result driven treatment but is only as successful as the level of preparation of the skin beforehand (proper at home skin routines), and the care taken afterward.

Overall, this approach is aimed at naturally rebuilding collagen by stimulating your skin through micro-injury where it can rebuild itself into a tighter, smoother, brighter and healthier skin.

Microneedling with Vitamin Infusion (Micro-Infusion) uses a specialized DF machine to infuse the skin’s deeper layers with vitamins and anti-oxidants. It also promotes the natural creation of collagen. This infused therapy is shown to result

in upwards of 150% better results and accelerated healing times vs the regular CIT treatments alone.

Microneedling with Hyaluronic Acid is similar to that of a classic CIT and a Vitamin Infusion, except that instead of vitamins and anti-oxidants being used, hyaluronic acid and marine collagen is topically applied. This procedure results in rebuilding lost collagen along with tighter, smoother and healthier looking skin.

Facial Peels

Chemical facial peels can be used as a single treatment, but multiple treatments will mean better results.

Applied to the top layer of the skin on the face and neck, it exfoliates by chemically dissolving and removing the skin’s outer layer that contains dead cells and unwanted bacteria. Chemical peels work best to smooth out your skin texture and brighten your complexion.

To ensure your safety, and the safety of your skin, it is highly recommended that you only have this treatment done by a trained and licensed professional.

Additionally, because each person has different skin textures and skin conditions, there are multiple kinds of peels offered in three groups:

  • Superficial

  • Medium

  • Deep

Just like how there are multiple options, there are also multiple benefits of a chemical peel. They can be summarized as 1. aiding in clearing of breakouts, 2. reducing skin discolouration from sun damage, 3. improving skin tone and clarity, 4. stimulating new cell growth.


The iS Clinical Fire & Ice Facial is a non-invasive treatment that lifts away dead skin with no after-treatment recovery time required. This particular facial is clinically proven to rejuvenate the skin by its double function of an exfoliation peel and deep hydration.

Not only does the treatment relax you while cleansing your pores, but it also improves uneven skin-tone, boost acne prone skin, and reduces fine-lines and wrinkles.

A Derma-planing facial finds your medical-aesthetician manually exfoliating your face to remove dead skin cells and fine facial hair. A sterile surgical blade is used to remove the damaged, dead layer of skin and hair, to allow for smoother skin and enhanced penetration of skincare treatments.

IPL Photo-rejuvenation (IPL)

A Photo-Facial or a Photo Rejuvenation Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is defined as a treatment that uses intense pulse light and heat to help the skin in removing the look of sun damage, broken capillaries, rosacea, and redness. By utilizing wavelengths and various crystallized headpieces, you get the added flexibility of different skin surfaces being covered.

With the use of these technologies and equipment, it is important to make sure your aestheticians are using reputable brands that are FDA approved, and that they are registered with Health Canada.

The Take Home

The four treatments mentioned in this article use medical grade advanced technologies to invite the natural stimulation of healthy cells. Through mechanical exfoliation, controlled micro-injury of the skin, and the use of heat and light, these non-surgical procedures are beneficial to supporting a glowing, youthful looking you.

Just like any kind of skin treatment, the lasting results will depend on your health routine like daily exercise, proper nutrition, supplements, gut health, vitamin intake and proper skincare.
