Our Anti-Aging Approach

Everyone's skin is different. Depending on your age, degree of sun damage, and health and environmental factors, a combination of treatments may be used to enhance and restore a natural and more youthful appearance. Our approach is to look at the whole picture and recommend the best course of treatment. Below, are the pillars of our anti-aging approach - a concept developed and pioneered by Dr. Lupin.

Select one of our 4 pillars of anti-aging above to learn more »

  • Animation is a normal part of expression.  It can also lead to an unwanted angry or stern look and not reflect how we feel.  This is the province for muscle relaxers such as Botox.

  • Genetic factors are commonly involved with increasing skin laxity that shows as the jowls of the neck, down turned corners of the mouth and heavy eyelids. Collagen strengthening and new collagen generation such as with non-invasive Thermage and Ulthera, help in this arena.

  • A drawn look can relate to loss of the normal fat pad support which gives us those nice youthful apples of the cheeks and healthy appearance. Dermal fillers can immediately restore and rebalance facial proportions by restoring lost volume and providing the much needed support.

  • Laser resurfacing such as with the Fraxel laser improves skin health while evening out the skin's tone and reversing premature lines. Its patented gliding application means that it remains the only laser of its kind to provide nice, even treatments with high safety. The Excel V laser is commonly used to remove unwanted spider veins.

    A permanent solution for excess underarm sweat.

    Whether in hot environments or moments of nervousness and anxiety, excess underarm sweat can leave us feeling embarrassed to lift up our arms.  It can stain clothing and really affect our social and professional lives. If this is a familiar feeling to you, then MiraDry® may be just what you need.

    MiraDry® is a permanent, non-invasive solution for excessive underarm sweating. In 1 to 2 one-hour treatments, MiraDry® provides an average of over 80 per cent improvement to these issues, leaving your underarms dry and comfortable. A side bonus effect is reduction in odour as well as reduction in hair.

    How does MiraDry work?

    The MiraDry device handpiece is placed on the underarm area after the area is completely anesthetized. A suction action draws the sweat glands closer to where the heat energy emanates. This energy destroys the sweat and odour glands while the surface skin and tissues are kept cool for a safe and comfortable treatment.

    Is it safe to eliminate these sweat glands?

    The sweat glands of the underarms comprise just 2 per cent of the millions of sweat glands on the body. Which means that following the treatment, you will sweat normally.

    For men and women in Victoria B.C., finding relief from the embarrassment of underarm sweat is safe and simple. Contact us to arrange a MiraDry® consultation today.

    How to PREVENT, PROTECT and CORRECT your skin with SkinCeuticals.

    Cosmedica has always been a destination for SkinCeuticals in Victoria, but with our recent clinic renovation, we have elevated the retail experience for our patients with a dedicated skin analysis system and complete range of products to tailor to your individual needs.

    When you visit Cosmedica for a skincare consultation, you will have the opportunity to have your skin scanned. This specialized device allows us to examine your skin under a light that reveals the underlying sun damage, dehydration and areas of excess oil that are more difficult to detect with the naked eye.

    Based on this analysis and a consultation with one of our skin experts, we will design a skincare regimen that will work towards addressing any concerns that were highlighted by the skin scanner, and equip you to maintain your healthiest and most beautiful skin.

    PREVENT, PROTECT and CORRECT

    We will base your skincare plan around these three steps, which are the foundation of any good skincare regimen, regardless of skin type or age.

    PREVENT with a topical antioxidant.
    This step prevents oxidative stress and damage from ultraviolet light—as well as internal and environmental triggers—that lead to skin aging.

    PROTECT with a broad-spectrum sunscreen everyday, rain or shine.
    UV damage is responsible for 90 percent of the signs of skin aging, not to mention skin cancer. Wearing sun protection everyday, rain or shine is one of the most important steps you can take to enjoy healthy and youthful skin for years to come.

    CORRECT with specialized, concentrated treatments.
    If you have specific skin concerns, the CORRECT step will work towards addressing them. Whether it’s acne, facial redness, dry and dehydrated skin, premature aging or pigmentation, daily use of a specialized treatment will help to bring your skin back into balance.

    Need help figuring out which PREVENT, PROTECT and CORRECT steps are right for you? A visit to our clinic for a personal, professional skincare consultation will help you get started on the SkinCeuticals routine that’s just right for you. Contact us today to arrange an appointment.
