• Winter Sun Damage
    Comments Off on Winter Sun Damage

    You need to use sunscreen in the winter for the simple reason the sun shines all year long. The most vulnerable places on your body during the winter are the face and hands. Many patients come see us to treat the dark spots that have appeared on the left side of the face from exposure to UVA rays while driving. In the winter, the sun’s heat is less due to the angle of sunlight, but the ultraviolet A and B rays are still strong enough to cause skin damage. When your skin is exposed to these rays it doesn’t matter what time of year it is. The ultraviolet rays can cause permanent skin damage.

    • Snow and ice reflect UV rays. Sure, it might seem gray outside, but snow and ice reflect the sun’s rays. This means you should keep your SPF routine up on a daily basis.
    • There’s a thinner ozone layer. Even though it feels colder outside, there’s actually more of the sun’s harmful rays hitting the earth’s surface and, yes, your skin
    • UVA rays penetrate glass and clouds. The power of UVA rays are the same on a dull winter day as they are on a summer one. They damage your skin, leading to aging and skin cancer. Because these rays can penetrate to  he deeper layers of the skin, they have more damaging effects on the skin structure causing loss of collagen and elasticity, resulting in sagging and wrinkling.

    An easy way to ensure proper protection is to use a foundation or day cream with an SPF of 25 or higher already built in. Jane Iredale has an SPF in everyone of their pressed bases, even their lipsticks have an spf! For a day cream that offers sun protection try CosMedics Daytime Moisturizer SPF41, it also provides much needed hydration during the winter months.

  • Slow Down Aging…
    Comments Off on Slow Down Aging…

     

    Sharing is caring! Here at CosMedics we like to do our research and when informative studies such as the one below come forth, we like to share it with our valued patients…

    Researchers in sunny Australia have used silicone moulds of subjects hands to demonstrate sunscreen’s ability to slow skin aging- at least in white people younger than 55 years.  Maria Hughes and colleagues at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research randomly assigned the participants to four groups: daily use of broad spectrum sunscreen (Spf 15+) and 30 mg of beta-carotene; daily sunscreen and placebo, discretionary sunscreen and 30 mg of beta-carotene; or discretionary sunscreen and placebo.

    After 4.5 years, blinded assessors determined that skin aging was 24% less in the discretionary sunscreen group.  Beta-cartene supplementation had no overall effect on skin aging. -Annals of Internal Medicine (June)

    Just another reason why we stress the importance of protecting your skin from the sun.  Come by our clinic and pick up a bottle of our Day Moisturizer SPF 41.  It’s amazing for all skin types and will provide the right protection for your delicate skin.

  • Are Your Hands Making You Look Older?
    Comments Off on Are Your Hands Making You Look Older?

    Many women (and men) practice all the right preventative and restorative suggestions when it comes to the appearance of their face, but less are aware of the age giveaway that hands can reveal.  Environmental factors such as sun damage and dry weather contribute to this problem as well as harsh soaps and a lack of moisture.  The result is aged and weathered hands with brown spotting and at most times, worse than on the face.

    This is where we come in.  We can educate patients about prevention, and when its too late for that, we can help to assist in the correction process.  We have two amazing moisturizers, one being our CosMedics Body Cream.  The synergy of multiple oils, extracts and additional age management ingredients it contains will provide hydration and increase moisture retention, keeping hands and arms younger looking.  Used daily, your skin will maintain its suppleness, softness and a smoother texture.  And second, we have our Day Moisturizer SPF 41.  This special product is formulated to prevent sunburn and sun damage caused by UVA/UVB exposure.  Going out golfing for the day?  This is the perfect companion to escort you and its size makes it perfect for almost any purse you carry.

    Now lets talk correction… We are equipped with advanced laser technology that has proven to reverse such damage.  A couple treatments, and your hands will return to their original pigmentation.  When you combine these treatments with our amazing products recommended above, we are confident your hands will look and feel better than ever before.

    Come into Cosmedics and stock up on these fabulous moisturizers.  If correction sparks your interest, call today and let this process begin for you!

Your lips will feel soft, supple and sexy! *Excellent for both males and females.

  • Giving Back is Beautiful
    Comments Off on Giving Back is Beautiful

    Here at CosMedics, we like to feel we are helping to make the world a better place. Dr. Singh, along with his family have developed the “Society For The Development In The Third World Countries”. This society has proudly founded a girl’s high school and two elementary schools in Dalippur, India. Doing so, it has created a demand for education in a population which was insensitive to educational needs. There is a focused effort to bring children from poor backgrounds, untouchable castes, rural girls, and other minorities the gift of education. Scholarship programs are in place to encourage these children to stay in school and not settle for the low paying jobs they are encouraged to work at.

    This project has also developed a commercial dairy farm becoming the largest income generator and employer in the village as well as a hospital providing free health care and medicine to the villagers.
    When you purchase CosMedics skincare from our Edmonton Clinic, 20% of profits will go to this wonderful foundation. Not only will your skin feel amazing, your heart can too knowing you are making a positive difference in the lives of others.
    As I have become educated about this amazing foundation our clinic is contributing to, along with Dr. Singh’s personal commitment to this Village, making trips and giving free medical care to those in need, I am filled with pride to work for such an amazing company. By coming into our clinic and using our services, you are contributing too. Learn More about our charity and community involvement. Thank you!
