Our Technology

Our Certified Laser Technicians use Syneron’s Medical Aesthetic System, powered by Elos. Unlike laser and light-based technology, eLight is the only system that maximizes safety, effectiveness, and comfort by combining two energy sources – bipolar radio frequency (RF) and Intense Pulse Light – to create optimal results for your face, chest, neck, and hands. Syneron’s eLight built-in chill tip helps cool the skin during treatment, thereby increase safety and comfort. The system provides high quality results with effective energy output, which means that pulses are comfortable, treatment is safe, and post-treatment side effects are minimized.

One of our Certified Laser Technicians will use the system’s sapphire crystal applicator to gently deliver a precise amount of light energy and radio frequency (RF) into skin’s surface. It actively stimulates collagen production, which over the time improves the skin’s elasticity and appearance.

In addition, our clients will benefit from our Zimmer® technology which is a Cold Air Device intended to minimize discomfort during and post IPL treatments.

What to expect

Results of Skin Rejuvenation, Skin Tightening and Acne treatments can be seen after just one treatment and have been proven to remain effective after 3 to 5 treatments. With little or no downtime required, these treatments are a fast and effective way to stimulate collagen production, minimize sun spots and redness caused by broken capillaries, as well as reduce signs of rosacea and early signs of aging.*

Your skin will be left looking lighter, tighter and brighter.

DiamondPolar

*Individual treatment results may vary.

HOW IT WORKS:

Using patented (MP)² technology, Venus Viva DiamondPolar™ utilizes multi-polar radio frequency and Pulsed Magnetic fields which produce a soothing and therapeutic heat matrix over the skin. Skin tightening and firming as well as wrinkle reduction occur because the multi-polar radio frequency causes a thermal reaction in the tissue which stimulates the body’s natural healing response. This restoring response causes the skin to contract, achieving tighter skin and softening of wrinkles.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

Venus Viva DiamondPolar™ treatments are non-invasive with many patients comparing the treatment to a hot-stone massage. Treatments take approximately 30-40 min depending on the area, you can expect to see results as the treatments progress, a minimum of 6 treatments for the face, 8 on the neck and 10 on the body.*

The Venus Viva DiamondPolar™ is a skin tightening device which can be used on its own or as a complement and boost to the Venus Viva Nano-Fractional RF™.

ReFirm SKIN TIGHTENING

Skin tightening treatments use radio frequency and infrared light to stimulate new collagen growth beneath the skin’s surface, helping you turn back the clock on aging skin.

This treatment is designed to lift and contour jawlines and jowls without surgery, recovery time, or injections. Using Syneron’s Medical Aesthetic System, powered by Elos technology, heat is stacked in different zones through multiple passes. The heat shortens collagen fibroblasts making the skin more taut, lifted and youthful-looking.*

FAQ

SKIN REJUVENATION

What is Skin Rejuvenation?

Skin Rejuvenation is a series of face, neck, and/or chest treatments using pulses of visible light and radio frequency to effectively diminish facial redness and broken capillaries as well as reduce sun damage and signs of aging. Skin Rejuvenation treatments provide a consistent, visible improvement to your skin with no downtime, minimal discomfort, and risk.

How does Skin Rejuvenation work?

Skin Rejuvenation uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and radio frequency (RF) energy to target skin imperfections in the more superficial or epidermal layer of the skin. It reduces fine blood vessels and facial redness, also eliminating abnormal pigmentation, sun damage, and freckles. Skin Rejuvenation also helps to generate new collagen formation to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

What can I expect from a Skin Rejuvenation treatment?

During your 30 minutes to an hour-long Skin Rejuvenation session, you should expect to experience a mild discomfort. This feeling will not continue after treatment. Immediately following treatment, your skin may appear red and flushed; tiny capillaries may appear more visible and brown spots will appear darker. These changes will fade over a period of a 3 to 14 days.

How soon will I see results?

Even after your first treatment, you will notice significant results, with your skin appearing more evenly toned. These improvements will continue to increase over time and become more visible after each treatment. Three to five treatments are recommended to achieve optimal results. These should be performed every three to four weeks.

How should I prepare for my treatment?

Tanning, including self-tanners should be avoided for at least three to four weeks before and after treatment. Use of exfoliating creams or skin products containing AHA/BHA and retinol should be discontinued 3 days prior to treatment.

VENUS VIVA DIAMOND-POLAR™ Skin Tightening

How successful are the treatments?

Most patients see a result in as little as three treatments however, we advise a full series of six treatments for the face and eight to ten treatments on the body to obtain optimal results.

Is there any pain or discomfort involved?

Most patients nap or just simply relax during the treatment. The sensation is absolutely pleasant and warm.

How many treatments do I need?

To obtain optimal results, we recommend 6 treatments for the face or neck, and 8 to 10 for the body. It is not uncommon that patients continue to see an improvement in their skin up to three months after the series of treatments is complete.

Is there any downtime?

With minimal downtime and minimal discomfort, a treatment to one area can take less than 30 minutes allowing you to enjoy the immediate and long term benefits shortly after a treatment.

What is it like to have a treatment?

As you lay comfortably on a treatment bed, the technician will apply a treatment gel to the skin.  This lotion helps the applicator glide on the surface of your skin.  The correct size applicator is selected and the treatment provider will then begin to apply smooth and consistent movements on the surface of the skin.  This feels like a wonderful warm massage.  We encourage our patients to close their eyes and take this time to just relax and enjoy the quiet and focused time for them.

How will I feel after a treatment?

Relaxed and the area will feel warm with a slight pinkness to redness. The warmth and pinkness will not last longer than an hour and most often has been described as a glow to the skin

ReFirm SKIN TIGHTENING

What is Skin Tightening?

Skin tightening is a non-invasive , non-surgical process that uses radio frequency and infrared light to tighten and lift skin by the use of multiple passes to heat the dermis causing the skin to contract (tighten). Facial skin tightening is noticeable immediately after the treatment with no downtime, making this an increasingly popular procedure. Additional skin tightening occurs over the next month, but optimal results require five treatments about a month apart.

What should I expect after a Skin Tightening treatment?

You may experience a lingering warmth, tightness, or redness in the treated area. This will fade within a few hours of treatment. Generally, you can receive a treatment and return to work or other activities without any recovery time.

When will I see results?

Most clients start noticing improvements after their first skin tightening treatment. However, because the procedure is designed to stimulate the natural growth of collagen, consecutive monthly treatments are required.

Are multiple treatments necessary?

Although clients usually notice increased skin elasticity after their first skin tightening session, it is recommended to do a series of five treatments to achieve optimal results. Treatments are generally spaced a month apart. After the initial series of skin tightening treatments, clients opt for a yearly maintenance session to maintain their results.

How much does Skin Tightening cost?

The cost of ReFirm Skin tightening varies depending on each client’s specific skin condition, the number of treatments required to achieve desired results, and the need for combination treatments. Many clients will combine skin tightening with other treatments such as Skin Rejuvenation or dermal fillers. For additional information, please contact our call center at 604.638.SKIN (7546) or one of our clinics.

Is Skin Tightening safe?

Skin tightening is a safe way to tighten and contour your face. Unlike other skin treatments which can be more invasive, skin tightening does not damage the surface of the skin. Clients who undergo skin tightening experience few side effects, most of which are minor inconveniences such as redness or minimal and temporary swelling.
