Treatments to Improve the Skin By Nimit D on June 15, 2012

Treatments to Improve the SkinLooking your absolute best means having skin that looks healthy and vibrant. Of course, many different factors can affect the overall beauty and health of your skin, including sun damage, sun exposure, and the natural effects of aging. In order for you to restore or enhance the beauty of your skin, it’s a good idea to visit an Ottawa plastic surgeon in order to learn more about your options. There are plenty of non-surgical treatments out there that can help you look your absolute best.

Non-Surgical Treatment Options for Better Skin

One of the best things about our Ottawa cosmetic plastic surgery center is that there is a wide range of treatments offered. That means both surgical treatments as well as non-surgical ones. By undergoing non-surgical treatments, you can have your aesthetic needs met without having to undergo an invasive surgery that involves lots of recuperative time. Below are just a few of the many great services we offer for cosmetic skin care treatment. During your consultation, we will be able to discuss all of these in much greater detail.


The top layer of skin sometimes looks dry, unhealthy, and often lacking in life. That’s where microdermabrasion comes in. During treatment, safe microcrystals of aluminum oxide are used to gently exfoliate the skin and leave you looking refreshed in the process.


For fine lines, large pores, acne scars, and other flaws on the skin’s surface, there is Ottawa PhotoFacial. This treatment involves the use of intense pulsed light (IPL), which penetrates layers of skin to reduce the appearance of imperfections and help promote collagen formation. This leads to healthier, suppler, and more attractive-looking skin.

Chemical Peels and Facials

A standard for dealing with dry skin, sun damage, and pigmentation problems, chemical peels and facials can really work wonders. They will remove the unhealthy top layer of skin and promote the growth of more beautiful, refreshed skin in the process.

BOTOX® Injections

BOTOX® injections are one of the most popular non-surgical wrinkle reduction treatments worldwide. It can give you the effects of a facelift without the need to actually undergo surgery. During a BOTOX® injection treatment, a special, safe solution is injected into the area where wrinkles are. This BOTOX® cosmetic solution will stop muscle contractions from occurring, meaning that your skin will not be agitated and wrinkles will not be able to form.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers, like BOTOX® injections, can similarly give you the effects of a facelift without the need for the surgery or the recovery period. These kinds of injections do not freeze muscles, however. Instead, dermal fillers will add volume and fill in hollows. The skin becomes plump and enriched in the process, leading to a much more appealing appearance and reduced wrinkles.


The Thermacool system is a great way to help address issues with loose or sagging skin without the need for incisions and downtime. The safe, radiofrequency energy will help stimulate the creation of collagen, leaving you looking your best again.
