Light therapy can treat more than just winter depression. Here’s why: the amount of light reaching your eye from interior lighting is far less than the amount from the real thing. Because of the temperature most of us spend most of our days in doors from November to March so you are relying on electric light for your photons.
So what if the brain could be tricked into thinking that it really isn’t winter after all, might that prevent this shift toward a kind of half-hibernating way of dealing with the world? It appears that for some people, this actually works.
At CosMedics we offer various treatments for relief of Depression. Light therapy is shown to offer relief, ask us if light therapy is right for you.Read more
A new and exciting product from SkinCeuticals.
Introducing Metacell B3
Metacell B3 is a daily corrective moisturizer designed to reduce the appearance of early photoaging of the skin. Signs of early photoaging include:
- loss of superficial elasticity
- uneven and dull skin tone
- fine lines and wrinkles
Metacell B3 is formulated with 3 key ingredients which are:
- 5% Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) – Helps to reduce discoloration and redness in the skin.
- 2.5% Tri-peptide Concentrate – Tightens surface elasticity and supports natural hydration levels helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- 15% Pure Glycerin – To deliver intense hydration to the skin.
Metacell B3 is the perfect product for someone looking to introduce an anti-aging product into their skin care regimen that isn’t quite ready for an intensive anti-aging product such as the AGE Interrupter. Metacell B3 is a product that can most certainly be suggested for all skin types, and especially for skin condition concerns involving dehydration, hyperpigmentation and premature aging.
The platysma is a thin fan of muscle that spreads from the chest up the neck to the jaw. As you age, it separates into rope-like bands, creating a “turkey neck” and adding years to your appearance.
While facial fillers can create a more youthful face, a stringy neck will give your age away. Up until recently, surgery seemed the best option, but now there is a non-invasive procedure that provides a youthful jawline and softened neck bands.
This treatment involves tiny injections in your neck and lower jaw, which takes 15 minutes. Results can be seen in a few days and can last for 4-6 months.
The skin around the eyes is more fragile, more prone to dryness, and quicker to show age and fatigue. Also fluids collect under the eyes and cause puffiness and dark circles. Eye creams are specially formulated to address these concerns. One of our favorites is SkinCeuticals AOX Eye Gel.FINALLY. A gel that delivers like a serum.This serum-in-a-gel technology allows actives to be formulated in solution at an acidic pH to penetrate skin down to the target site just like an aqueous serum.
- Pure actives
- High concentrations of vitamin C
- Acidic PH
- Prevents signs of aging
- Helps reduce the appearance of puffiness and under eye bags
- Combats signs of fatigue to restore fresh, vibrant appearance
Tip: Like all topical antioxidants, AOX Eye Gel should be applied once daily in the morning.

We have all seen before and after pictures of treatments and procedures. And we all have wondered if they have been edited. Let’s be serious, we have actually even wondered if it is the same person.
Well these results are real. This is 1 month post Ulthera on the upper face. This client was concerned over the droopy eyelids, and only being in her late 30’s, she felt this added years to her appearance.
Ulthera is a non invasive facelift. There is no downtime and results can last up to 2 years. Natural looking, beautiful results.Read more
The skin reveals sun damage only after many years after it was exposed to the harmful rays of the sun.
At CosMedics we are also a Medically directed spa and laser center. We offer gentle lasers that treat fine lines, discoloration and increased pore size that is the result of sun exposure. Sun damage is more prominent in the areas that receive more exposure such as the forehead, nose and hands.Read more
Hyaluronic Acid (HA)
Almost half of the body’s HA is located in the collagen of skin and it is logical that HA plays a vital role here. Hyaluronic acid helps to retain over a 1000 times its weight in water within the cells of skin, making it an excellent moisturizer. In fact, no other biological substance can retain as much water as HA resulting in increased smoothness, softening and decreased wrinkles. Equally important is its ability to remove waste matter from cells including those where there is little blood circulation.
We are fortunate to have some great products and treatments which carry very concentrated hyaluronic acid.
– Hydramucine Optimal Serum (GM Collin)
-Hydrating B5 ( SKC)
-Hydrating B5 Mask (SKC)
We can infuse Hydramucine serum and hydrating B5 with micro-needling.
In my opinion, every client who is on chemical peels, Retin-A or regular micro should be using Hydramucine optimal serum or hydrating B5.
