• Lips, Lips, Lips! Injectable for lips.
    Comments Off on Lips, Lips, Lips! Injectable for lips.

     

    Non permanent hyaluronic acid-based fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane and others have long been used in the lips and peri-oral areas to increase the overall volume of the lips, enhance the vermilion border, minimize peri-oral lines and sculpt and define the lips.

     

    Recently introduced, Juvederm Volbella injectable gel is a smooth, non particle, viscous hyaluronic acid gel developed specifically for the lip area.  Its patented Vycross technology provides more efficient cross-linking than Juvederm Ultra, the product we have been using for lips until now.  This cross-linking results in a longer product duration and has a greater lift capacity as the gel is better able to lift against the pressure of the skin.

    The benefit of Using Volbella aside from previously discussed is its longer lasting reputation.  Juvederm Ultra Plus, the product we have been using for lips in the past, lasts from 6-9 months.  Volbella has been proven to last a whole year at a very small price increase.  Results are instant and patients are happy with their results.

    Dr. Singh was recently invited to speak at the National launch of Volbella and share his experience with this amazing new product with other physicians.

  • Uplifting Results with Injectable Facial Fillers
    Comments Off on Uplifting Results with Injectable Facial Fillers

    Gravity is perhaps the number one enemy of aging skin. As the law of physics would have it, skin sags as we age. Folds of skin collect at the bottom of the face, resulting in what is commonly referred to as “turkey neck”. One in three women are bothered by the effects of sagging and what many of these women don’t realize is that the aesthetic treatment of sagging skin is one of the most important ways to achieve an overall youthful look.

    This is where facial fillers and Botox come in. Fillers are formulated to get underneath the supporting cushions of skin to do more than just fill crevices or grooves, but actually re-contour the jaw and chin.  Botox is used to relax the muscles that pull our faces downward and let the upper facial muscles do their job in lifting the face.

    Here at CosMedics, Dr. Singh has mastered such techniques and makes a positive difference in the lives of patients daily, as he restores each individuals youthful appearance. Book a consultation today and learn more about what these treatments can do for you.

    Here at CosMedics, we like to help our patients prepare and protect themselves from the effects of the season changes.  A common side effect of sun damage is brown spotting on the skin.  The cost of correction of such problems is high so we encourage patients to be educated and active when it comes to prevention.  This is where our Daily Moisturizer comes in handy.  Its formulated with SPF 41 so when applied in the morning, it will provide the protection needed throughout the day to combat the damaging effects of the sun.  This sheer oil-free moisturizer is non-comedogenic and fragrance-free, making it ideal for all skin types.

    Next, we must not forget about the lips!  For beautiful, healthy lips all summer long, CosMedics has created the ultimate lip gloss.  The gloss has an SPF of 15 providing great protection from the sun.  This product is designed to increase the volume of your lips and hydrate as it reduces appearance of furrows and fine lines. Its blend of ingredients will gently exfoliate dead skin cells and increase volume while protecting them from UV damaging rays. Vitamin E is added to protect delicate lips from free radical damage. Your lips will feel soft, supple and sexy! *Excellent for both males and females.

  • Have No Fear, Glycolic Peels Are Here!
    Comments Off on Have No Fear, Glycolic Peels Are Here!

    When I was first introduced to the idea of a chemical peel, I was overcome with fear. After thinking about why, I was able to trace it back to, “Sex And The City” episode where Samantha gets a chemical peel before an important book release event Carrie has. Wanting to attend the event to support her best friend, Samantha wore a massive black hat draped with black shear fabric to cover her hideously burnt face. I made a mental note that from that day forward, I would NEVER do that to myself.

    Working here at CosMedics, I was able to see first-hand that this was a major exaggeration and if a peel is done properly under the right supervision, it can be an amazing solution to many skin problems ranging from pigmentation issues to severe acne and scarring.  Glycolic peels help to  unclog pores, reduce inflammation, and kill the bacteria that causes acne.  Alberta Health care, depending on the severity and diagnosis, may even cover your peels here at CosMedics.

    If you have dermatological issues, come in to our Edmonton clinic for a consultation and get educated about chemical peels and the benefits they can have for you.

  • Did You Break Your Nose?
    Comments Off on Did You Break Your Nose?

    Throughout my childhood years, I was asked on several occasions, “Did you break your nose?” The answer to this was no and the result of this was I developed a complex about the shape of my nose. Although the imperfection was subtle, I still felt I’d be happier and more confident if it was fixed but with the cost and down-time of rhinoplasty, a solution seemed out of my reach.

    Recently, I became educated about an affordable solution  with the added benefit of having no down time unlike plastic surgery, where recovery time could be up to a month!  In our Edmonton clinic, Dr. Singh uses the leading facial filler in Canada, to give patients a non-surgical nose job.  Assisting him, I’ve been amazed about the transformations that occur in a matter of minutes.  Best of all, pain is minimal and zero down-time!  I knew this was the solution for me!

    The filler has freezing added into it so I could barely feel a thing while I was injected.  Dr. Singh marked his injection sites and in a matter of 5 minutes, I was looking in the mirror at the nose I had imagined for years.  I now have the nose I want without a major dip into my bank account and it will last all year.  I am very happy with my results and I would recommend this  to anyone and everyone who is unhappy with their nose!

  • Six Super Skin Care Products
    Comments Off on Six Super Skin Care Products

    Rejuvenating your skin doesn’t require extensive or invasive surgery. Taking care of your skin daily is one of the best ways to keep your skin looking young and fresh. As part of my dedication to skin care in Edmonton, I’ve created my own skin care line with six effective products designed to keep your skin looking healthy and beautiful.

    1. Purifying Enzymatic Cleanser

    By deeply exfoliating your skin, this purifying cleanser helps to keep your skin smooth and moisturized with every wash. It works by gently penetrating the layers of your skin to remove and digest old skin cells (which clog your pores and cause blemishes), leaving you with truly radiant skin.

    Key ingredients: Pineapple and Papaya Enzyme, Aloe Vera Extract, Wheat Protein, Avocado Oil and Dexpanthenol (Vitamin B).

    2. Pure Protection Cream

    For firmer, tighter skin with a more even skin tone and fewer wrinkles, this protection cream stimulates collagen synthesis while moisturizing your skin.

    Key ingredients: Sunflower Seed Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Ceramides 3, 6-11, Algae, Squalene, Panthenol (Vitamin B5) and Green Tea.

    3. Daytime Moisturizer SPF 41

    The first step toward healthier skin is prevention. It’s critical to prevent your skin from prematurely aging and from environmentally-caused damage. This moisturizer helps you achieve both by protecting your skin from UVA and UVB rays that can cause discolored skin, wrinkles and even skin cancer. It uses a completely oil free moisturizing base, is noncomedogenic and is fragrance-free for all skin types.

    Key ingredients: Water, Caprylic, Isoparaffin, Hyaluronic Acid and Citric Acid.

    4. Eye Revive

    Tired of looking tired? This product will minimize dark circles under the eyes and puffiness while helping reduce fine lines and wrinkles. To give your skin an extra boost, this product fights cancer-causing free radicals and UV rays while firming and tightening your skin.

    Key ingredients: HaloxyI, Eyeliss, Hesperidin, Yeast Extract, Ceramide 2 and Mica.

    5. Instant Relief Balm

    This balm is a specially-formulated anti-inflammatory antioxidant that stimulates collagen synthesis, reduces skin redness and helps treat the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

    Key ingredients: Astaxanthin, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-3, Retinyl Palmitate, Copper Tripeptide-1, Caviar Extracts and Vitamin C.

    6. Fresh Face Exfoliant

    Much like a series of microdermabrasion treatments, this product is designed to work gently, over several, progressive applications rather than in one aggressive treatment. It contains a combination of anti-aging ingredients that exfoliate the skin and allow for new cell turnover.

    Key ingredients: Cucumber Extract, Soy Oil & Soy Protein, Olive Oil, Aloe Vera and Witch Hazel.
