At Inovativ Aesthetics, we take the time to get to know you, and truly comprehend your skin care goals, before delivering a bespoke treatment plan.

There is simply no one size fits all when it comes to looking and delivering on your best skin.

Acne / Acne Scarring

Acne is the result of overactive sebaceous glands and excess skin cell production, resulting in blackheads, whiteheads, and cysts.

While acne is usually associated with adolescence, many adults suffer from this irritating skin ailment and seek out treatment from a cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist. Acne does not just appear on the face; it also targets the arms, back, shoulders, buttocks, décolleté, and neck. The raised lesions can heal poorly, leaving debilitating scars and craters in their wake. Often the skin reacts with redness, swelling, soreness and inflammation, causing significant distress and interrupting the normal flow of life.

In conclusion, the goal of treatment is to combat and reverse the effects of this skin ailment.

Aging / Wrinkles

Wrinkles appear around the eyes, the forehead, the brows, the nose, the mouth, the cheeks, and temples, around our lips and even our hands.

Sagging, thinning skin may also be present as we age. Some wrinkles are so deep, they turn into what we would refer to as a furrow, a crease, or a fold.

How do wrinkles form?

Wrinkles are caused by either external factors such as UV radiation or smoking, or they are due to the constant muscle contractions we perform when expressing emotion with our faces. Those with greater amounts of subcutaneous fat tend to suffer less from wrinkles. Sometimes wrinkles can also be due to poor genes.

We offer a variety of safe, effective wrinkle treatments.

Double Chin Reduction

For those who struggle with a double chin, it is frustrating. In addition, the unsightly fat around the face can negatively impact your self-confidence, make photos uncomfortable, and make you look older and heavier than you are. Even with diet and exercise, it can be next to impossible to reduce the look of a double chin.

At Inovativ Aesthetics, we have non-surgical treatments that will assist you to reduce a double chin.

These are:

  • Carboxytherapy
  • Electro-Sonic Currents
  • Mesotherapy
Eyes / Dark Circles & Puffiness

Why undereye dark circles appear

As we get older, the skin generally tends to become thinner and loose. This is especially true around the eyes, leading to a tired appearance. The undereye area (also known as the “tear trough” area) can also appear hollow and sunken due to volume loss. The undereye area can look dark because of enlarged blood vessels. Skin pigmentation can also be an issue around this delicate area, resulting in the dark appearance.

To address dark circles, we offer several solutions:

  • Carboxytherapy (4-6 treatments, a week apart – no downtime)
  • Dermal Fillers
  • Laser
  • Medical Grade Skin Peels
  • Microcurrent
  • Topical Eye Creams to build collagen can be helpful long term, and should be used early on

Why undereye puffiness appears

This phenomenon mostly occurs as we age. As a result of aging, tissues around the eyes, including some of the muscles supporting the eyelids, weaken. Normal fat that helps support the eyes can then move down into the lower eyelids, causing the lids to appear puffy. This also occurs under the eyes resulting in unattractive bags.  

To help with undereye puffiness, we offer:

  • Dermal Fillers
  • Laser
  • Medical Grade Skin Peels
  • Microcurrent
  • Plasma Pen
Mouth Lines & Wrinkles (peri-oral lines)

While mouth wrinkles happen to everyone as they age, there are ways you may help to reduce their appearance. You may even be able to take steps to prevent mouth wrinkles from developing prematurely.

What are the causes?

The mouth area is one of the first spots on your face that may develop wrinkles. Part of this is due to the thinness of the skin, which already has less collagen compared to other areas of the face. Your skin starts producing an estimated 1 percent less collagen every year once you turn 20 years old.

Besides collagen, there are other aspects of the skin aging process to consider, such as a loss of elastin and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which contribute to skin elasticity and hydration, respectively. These are known as intrinsic or natural aging.

There are also extrinsic factors that may increase your risk for premature wrinkles around the mouth. They are outside influences that speed up this process. Examples include:

  • dehydration
  • genetics
  • poor nutrition
  • smoking
  • stress
  • sun damage

To treat mouth and lip area lines and wrinkles, we offer the following treatments:

  • BioSkinJetting/BioSkinSmoothing
  • Carboxytherapy
  • Dermal Fillers
  • Laser
  • Medical Grade Skin Peels
  • Plasma Pen
  • Skin Needling
Pigmentation / Melasma

Pigmentation is a common condition which occurs when patches of skin become darker than the surrounding skin.

It is caused by the body’s overproduction of melanin, the pigment that gives the hair, eyes, and skin their colour. In addition, pigmentation can also be caused by sun damage, medications, skin injuries, and inflammation (including acne).

Sometimes issues occur with melanin that causes variations in pigment colouring. These include sunspots, in which melanocytes overproduce, or melasma, in which darker areas patchwork the face. Melasma causes darker splotches on the cheeks, around the mouth, and on the forehead. Daily use of a good sun protection product is crucial to treating and preventing pigmentation.

  • Dermamelan
  • Enzyme Therapy

Rosacea / Facial Redness

Rosacea is a condition that many individuals suffer from, an inflammatory skin condition that starts with facial flushing.

It most commonly affects the face and presents with redness, visible blood vessels and tiny red bumps that look like acne and often gets increasingly worse over time. Rosacea can be triggered by environmental factors including wind, exercise, stress, and diet. With treatment, it is important to take a holistic approach, focusing on treating the cause, not the symptom.

It is our goal to help you to control your rosacea with a customized treatment plan so your skin can look its best.

  • Clinical Facials
  • Enzyme Therapy
  • L.E.D. Phototherapy
  • Skin Needling
Skin Sagging

Sagging of the skin is one of the more subtle signs of aging to identify, creeping up on us slowly rather than all at once.

The gradual depletion of the skin’s vibrancy, suppleness and youthful glow is due to one genes, exposure to toxins and pollutants in the environment, yo-yo dieting, smoking, hormonal changes, certain medications, and the natural course of getting older.  Facial sagging and hollowing are most prominent in these places:  cheeks, eye-sockets, forehead, jawline, lips, and temples.

We can help with sagging skin and offer the following solutions:

  • Anti-wrinkle Injections
  • Dermal Fillers
  • Skin Needling
  • Venus Concept Radio Frequency
Stretch Marks

A stretch mark is a scar: the skin has been stretched to the point that an actual scar has been created. In many cases, the stretch marks appear on the lower abdomen, flanks, and breasts. They may have appeared during adolescence when the body quickly matured, or due to pregnancy, weight gain and loss.

Many clients seek out advanced treatments that will reduce the appearance of these unsightly marks without surgery. Various treatments are available that can improve skin quality and reduce the appearance of red or blue stretch marks on the body.

It may require a series of treatments to effectively improve the look of stretch marks, with various techniques and technologies applied, based upon the colour, size, and shape of the stretch marks. Some of the non-surgical treatments that may be effective in treating your specific case include:

  • Carboxytherapy
  • Dermal Fillers
  • Medical Grade Skin Peels
  • Microdermabrasion
  • Plasma Pen
  • Skin Needling
Stubborn Fat

For many men and women of all different ages and backgrounds, stubborn fat is synonymous with one word: frustration. In most cases, no number of crunches, treadmill time, reduced calories or diet protein shakes will affect the stubborn fat even an inch. It simply seems determined to stay put, ruining your image and self-confidence. Often its victims are perfectly healthy in all ways, save for the few inches of irritating fat deposits.

Stubborn fat accumulates around the belly, the hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, chest, neck, or calves, and makes clothing fit poorly, as it is difficult to hide unsightly bulging. This may even influence you to avoid places where one’s body is on display, such as the beach, or the spa.

You may be wondering what causes this stubborn fat to form. There are several reasons. Firstly, it may be caused by aging. With advancing years, the metabolism slows down quite a bit.

Secondly, low thyroid hormones are another factor with excess fat, as the thyroid gland is responsible for regulating our metabolism. Other symptoms of a poorly functioning thyroid include fatigue, dry skin, emotional problems, and erratic hunger cycles, and in these cases, we recommend working with a homeopath, naturopath or functional medicine practitioner.

Thirdly, another reason for stubborn fat is stress. Stress can result from job concerns, relationship woes, financial pressure, family drama, or just even the difficulty of navigating city life. So, stress cannot be underestimated in its ability to cause us to gain weight. In addition, stress triggers the adrenal gland to overproduce cortisol, the flight or fight hormone. This in turn makes you more likely to overeat.

Lastly, sleep problems can largely contribute to problems maintaining one’s figure. Leptin is a protein that works to regulate the appetite, but it gets depleted and must be restored during the sleep cycle. Consequently, when we are sleep deprived, our bodies get out of whack and start to rack up the pounds.

To help with small areas of stubborn fat accumulation, we offer the following:

  • Carboxytherapy
  • Electro-Sonic Therapy
  • Venus Concept Radio Frequency
Sun Damage

While the natural tendency of our skin to succumb to aging is inevitable, we can control the damage we receive from the sun’s harmful rays by limiting our contact with the sun and wearing protective sunblock. Over-exposure to the sun ages the skin prematurely and is responsible for skin cancers. In addition, UV radiation causes skin tissue to lose its ordinary elasticity, resulting in sagging, tired skin that is depleted of moisture and resilience.

Sun damage also drains our skin of its collagen, an important protein in the human body that is responsible for the skin’s suppleness and youthfulness. Most importantly, collagen works like a hydrating gel encasing the cells, providing a healthy glow to the complexion. When it is absent, the skin becomes rough, dull, and hollow. If sun damage continues, it can even trigger the skin cells to begin reproducing at an abnormal rate, which we know as cancer.

Excessive sun exposure can cause the over-production of melanin, the skin’s pigment, creating colour irregularities in the complexion, which may induce self-consciousness. As a result, the skin can even get quite dark as in over-tanning. While those with lighter skin are most at risk of the dangers of sun damage, even people with darker skin can receive harm from the sun’s rays.

Treatments for sun damage

At Inovativ Aesthetics, we are well-versed in a variety of effective procedures for healing, and in some cases reversing, sun damage. As a first step, your Aesthetician can educate you carefully on what types of sunscreens are right for your skin type and lifestyle. The best products are 30 SPF (sun protection factor) or higher, contain titanium dioxide or zinc oxide, and protect the face and body from both UVA and UVB sunrays. In addition, we offer:

  • Clinical Facials
  • Medical Grade Skin Peels
