Holiday Ready: Stress and Your Skin

19 Dec
Holiday Ready: Stress and Your Skin - Guelph Facial Plastics

Many decades of research have proven that stress is a trigger for several skin irregularities. As the holidays are usually a more stressful time for people, it’s only natural their skin may react.

If you’re experiencing holiday stress you may want to seek professional advice on how to keep your skin under control. At Guelph Facial Plastics we offer effective surgical and non surgical skin treatments under the supervision of one of North America’s top cosmetic and reconstructive surgeons Dr. Matthew Brace.

To determine which medical treatment would be best for your skin’s issues, Dr. Brace will hold a private consultation to go over your concerns and end goals. For example, if any fine lines or wrinkles around the eyes or mouth have become more prominent, Dr. Brace may recommend a dosage of Botox or Dysport to relax the muscles for a more youthful appearance. If the texture of your skin has become rough and dry due to the colder, winter air, a chemical peel may be recommended to deeply exfoliate the epidermis and reveal the new, fresh and glowing skin underneath.

We are also able to dramatically reduce scarring and pigmentation with both the CO2RE and Vbeam Perfecta lasers, courtesy of the leading global aesthetic companies, Syneron Candela. CO2RE is the gold standard in facial rejuvenation treatments, able to eliminate scarring, hyperpigmentation and fine lines and wrinkles in as little as one session. Vbeam Perfecta is the worldwide best-selling pulse-dye laser, able to clear multiple types of redness such as rosacea, spider veins and vascular lesions. Skin is visibly rejuvenated after just one treatment, with full clearance achievable with the client’s custom treatment plans.

To maintain the skin during any of these services, we also offer a wide variety of innovative products from top skincare brand SkinMedica. With over a decade of research, Skin Medica’s advanced formulas offer clinically proven results. The team at Guelph Facial Plastics would be happy to talk you through any specific products or concerns.
