Today, everything is much more simple and, apart from cosmetic surgery, there are numerous non-surgical procedures you can rely on. Let’s check them out.

Mirror, mirror, on the wall… Should you find yourself staring into the mirror and wondering about the ways to freshen up your look, don’t worry, you’re not alone. We are all tired and it definitely shows.

It is almost as if everything you do reflects on your appearance. Well, okay, each and every one of your decisions being written all over your face is a bit far-stretched. But, each and every one of your daily routines definitely does take its own toll on your skin. 

Of course, the cold Canadian winters coupled with a myriad of other factors regarding your lifestyle are sure to affect what you see in the looking glass. Unhealthy diet, improper hydration, stress, sun damage…and, oh, the inevitable doom of aging. Yes, the mere act of existing is damaging and leaves scars. But, since our skin is here to stay, we might as well love it.

What is your reflection trying to tell you?

Staying healthy and beautiful in the stressed modern world seems to have never been more difficult. And yet, with a few simple tricks, it can become the easiest thing ever. Especially if you find yourself in one of the most livable cities in the world. More on that here.

So, the next time you stand in front of a mirror, do yourself a favor and, instead of looking, start listening. What is your reflection trying to tell you? If you’re like me, it probably sounds like this: “Oh my God, you are gorgeous! But, you could definitely take some more care of your skin”. 

This is why I have put together a list of some of the healthiest ways to do so in British Columbia. 

Non-Surgical Skin Care Treatments

Far, far back in the day, the first image that would pop in people’s minds upon hearing the phrase “beauty treatments” was the one of a knife. Today, everything is much more simple and, apart from cosmetic surgery, there are numerous non-surgical procedures you can rely on. Let’s check them out.

  • Injectables

When looking to reduce wrinkles, make their lips or generally their skin look fuller, people usually opt for dermal fillers such as collagen, or Hyaluronic Acid. Along with these, nowadays there are synthetic fillers which will last longer. These fillers work by being injected under your skin to restore its volume.

On the other hand, Botox works by blocking the release of neurotransmitters at a nerve ending. Simply put, it relaxes and temporarily paralyzes the muscles, which gives your skin the smoothness it deserves.

In addition to this, the Sculptra treatment is becoming more and more popular in Vancouver.

  • Chemical Peels

A chemical peel, light, medium, or deep, is a great option for treating wrinkles, fixing skin discoloration and treating scars. As mentioned, there are different depths of a chemical peel, and each one is done with a different chemical. It is best to consult the doctor when making this choice. Naturally, the deeper the peel, the more efficient the results.

However, keep in mind that the recovery period also depends on this choice. And remember, while the light and the medium chemical peels can be repeated after a specific time period, the deep chemical peel is performed only once.

  • Laser Treatments

There are a few different laser treatments that can work wonders for your skin. From ablative and non-ablative lasers, to vascular therapy, the laser techniques are known as one of the most rejuvenating methods of skin care in Vancouver and seem to be very popular among both the younger and the older population.

These procedures encourage the production of new collagen, while also specifically targeting any imperfections you might have, such as acne inflammation and blemishes. Furthermore, they are also great for healing scars.

  • Microneedling

The last one on my list is the Collagen Induction Therapy, known as Microneedling. This technique is still a subject of many studies and researches, but it has been used for a while now. 

Microneedling involves puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles and it has proved effective against acne, scars and various different skin problems.
