October is a colourful month bringing all the comforts of Fall  into our lives: Thanksgiving, Turkey and Pumpkin Pie.  Pumpkins actually offer more than a scrumptious smell and a delicious taste to your tummy, they are fantastic for your skin.  Of course, I do not recommend slapping pumpkin pulp on your face but combined with other ingredients like yams and pineapples, it can do wonders for your skin.

We provide several Pumpkin Facials during this season to revitalize and renew your skin.  Repair the sun damage, reduce pigmentation, get rid of acne, and prevent wrinkles.

Our pumpkin facials are suitable for all skin types.  Although some people suggest that acneic skin types should avoid enzyme peels – we encourage them!  Natural enzymes infuse your skin with nutrients and they detoxify the skin to encourage healing.  Whether you want to reduce your pore size, or even out your skin tone – we have the perfect peel for you.

Hand Rejuvenation

Do your hands reveal your age?  Are sun spots and loose skin making you look older than you feel?  In a few simple treatments you can feel 5 years younger.

What is Hand Rejuvenation?

We use an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to target red and brown pigmentation. The light passes harmlessly through the skin and is absorbed by spots and lesions.  This will also stimulate the production of collagen and elastin making your hands more youthful.

Is Hand Photorejuvenation safe?

Hand Photorejuvenation is a safe, common and quick treatment with very little risk.

Will there be any downtime?

No, you may return to your daily routine immediately.

How many treatments are required and how soon will results appear?

The number of treatments will vary from person to person.  Some people will be happy with 3 treatments whereas others will require 6 treatments.  Improvement is seen as soon as the first few treatments.

How long do the results last?

The effects of Hand Photorejuvenation can be permanent as long as your hands stay protected from the sun and chemicals.  Topical lotions can also be used to maintain the skin’s elasticity.

Instructions for before treatment:

Avoid sun exposure and sunless tanning for four weeks. Do not take aspirin, ibuprophen or other anti-inflammatory medications for at least three days before your session. You cannot be treated while you have open infections or sores in the area.

Instructions for after treatment:

Protect your skin with moisturizer and sunblock. Cold compresses may be used as needed. Avoid irritating your skin. Avoid sun exposure and sunless tanners.
