Are you considering a cosmetic procedure? Are you wanting to address concerns reflected to you in your mirror and on video conferences since Covid-19 pandemic lockdown? Have you spent hours researching your options on Google websites? Look no further…Read on to gain insights into next steps toward a refreshed and refined appearance.
Our goal at Natural Beauty Medical Aesthetics is to personalize your experience to help you achieve the results you are wanting to see. We provide a complimentary comprehensive consultation to review what we believe is needed to accomplish your goals. We do not provide one-size-fits-all treatments. Everyone is unique and so is the type and amount of recommended treatment/product (e.g tox, injectable fillers, prp, microneedling, chemical peels, etc.). At the end of the consultation, you will have a clear idea of what is recommended for optimal results, along with an itemized cost estimation. We understand that not everyone’s budgets allow for full treatment at one appointment and that’s okay. We will stage out treatment areas so that over time you progress toward your optimum results. Remember though that nothing in medical aesthetics is a ‘one and done’ treatment. All procedures require maintenance to keep the same level of enhancement and polished look.
Highlighting Your Signature Trait and Addressing Areas of Concern
Everyone has a feature or facial characteristic they like most about themselves or that others have noted as particularly striking. We are also all created with some asymmetry and disproportion – No one has naturally perfect features! Social media filters create the illusion that perfection is everywhere, but IT IS NOT! Our role at Natural Beauty Medical Aesthetics is to help highlight areas you love and supporting neighbouring areas of disproportion or asymmetry that may be detracting from your signature features. Progress toward perfection is more realistic. As they say, Rome was not built in a day…nor is facial restoration and refinement.
Aging Effects on our Appearance
As we age (this begins in our 20’s – sorry!), we lose facial volume and collagen (which supports elasticity and skin firmness). The result is drooping, sagging and hollowness. Did you know that we lose about 1% of our collagen each year after the age of 30? This can make us look tired and aged. Customized treatment plans can help restore this volume loss and skin tightness. Our comprehensive treatment plan will outline the areas for treatment, types of product/procedure, and dosages recommended for optimum results. It is then up to you!
Cost versus Investment
I always get questions about cost for procedures, often with a focus on product cost per unit or syringe. The fact is that you are investing in medical treatments on a canvas you wear every day! Everyone invests in accessories – jewelry, handbags, seasonal clothes, shoes, etc. How much do you spend on these accessories? How much do you invest in makeup to cover your so-called flaws? What if you reinvested that financial resource into high grade aesthetics treatments and medical grade skincare? You show your face (and neck and décolletage) everyday, so why not invest in your face like you do your expensive foundation pieces. You save for these right?! So instead why not save for your medical aesthetic procedures and skincare.
The Importance of Skincare
Talking about skincare, this investment is so very important. Do you go to the orthodontist and invest thousands of dollars on that perfect smile and then stop brushing your teeth? Nope, I doubt that! So why would you invest in medical aesthetic treatments and then cheap out on grocery store skincare? Don’t get me wrong, there are some great cosmetic grade products out there, but if you want to help stabilize that collagen degradation and refine that skin crepiness, tone or pigmentation changes, consider investing in medical grade skincare. Unlike cosmeceuticals (typically purchased at stores), medical skincare must go through rigorous research (like all pharmaceutical grade medications) before being approved by Health Canada. Medical grade skincare offers greater amounts of active ingredients that are high grade and, like prescription grade medications, are only available through regulated health professionals (e.g. physicians and nurse practitioners). This leads to consistently predictable results, often quicker than cosmeceuticals can offer.
