As 2018 comes to an end (where does the time go?) we’re reflecting on everything this year brought us: amazing patients, incredible surgical journeys, and unbelievable non-surgical results, among other accomplishments.
Today we’re reflecting on what makes those unbelievable non-surgical results possible; the medical aesthetic treatments that our patients have been loving this year. Some are new, others have been serving us well for years. Without further ado, here are Ottawa Plastic Surgery’s top 5 treatments of 2018.
1. Fibroblast Plasma Skin Tightening.
This year, we added Fibroblast Plasma Skin Tightening to our medical aesthetic roster. This cutting-edge treatment quickly became one of the most popular procedures we perform on a daily basis, taking Ottawa by storm! Before Fibroblast, surgical intervention like a facelift was the only way to eliminate excess skin. Now, using plasma (an ionized gas), we can tighten wrinkles and lax skin non-invasively and we’re seeing amazing results in areas like the upper and lower eyelids, crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead lines, upper and lower lip, jowls, neck, and even the tummy and belly button!
2. Chemical Peels.
Chemical peels remain a consistent favourite around here, and for good reason! These no-downtime treatments are suitable for almost every skin type, and the benefits of regular chemical peels are almost unmatched. Treatments are fast and comfortable, and can be customized depending on your concerns to peel away blemishes and other skin imperfections. There’s a reason one of the oldest cosmetic procedures in the world is still one of the most requested.
You knew your friend BOTOX® would make this list, didn’t you? Neuromodulators, the oh-so-popular wrinkle-smoothing smoothing injectable treatments, remain one of the most popular cosmetic treatments not only at Ottawa Plastic Surgery, but in the world. It’s not hard to guess why; the treatment requires no downtime, and helps women and men of all ages look fresh-faced and rejuvenated by softening (or in younger patients, preventing) unwanted lines and wrinkles.
4. Dermal Fillers.
Whether they come to us looking to plump their pout, or restore lost volume in the face, dermal fillers remain a go-to treatment for our patients. For everything from lip injections to addressing common signs of aging, dermal fillers are an extremely safe and highly effective way to refresh your appearance quickly, effectively, and without downtime. With Christena at the helm, results are always subtle, natural, and most of all, beautiful.
5. Venus Versa™ Skin Resurfacing.
Venus Versa™ Skin Resurfacing was another new addition to Ottawa Plastic Surgery in 2018, and boy was it a good one. Safe and effective for all skin types and tones, this nanofractional radiofrequency skin resurfacing technology makes achieving beautiful skin easier than ever. We’ve seen this baby diminish the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, and even skin texture, all in less than 30 minutes. You’ve got to try it for yourself!
