Vancouver Aesthetic Doctor Offers Latisse to Lash Out

Vancouver Aesthetic Doctor Offers Latisse to Lash Out

Eyelashes have always been a focal point of human beauty. In fact, the promise of longer lashes has become one of the cornerstones of today’s cosmetic marketplace. From gravity-defying fibre mascaras and falsies to lifting and tinting, there are many options for people who desire bigger, bolder lashes. And today, there’s one more—a prescription serum known as Latisse. “Many purely cosmetic solutions can cause severe ocular discomfort and reactions,” says Dr. Roz Kamani. “Moreover, solutions like extensions and fills can actually damage your lashes.” Latisse is an FDA-approved treatment that can grow eyelashes for those with inadequate or not enough lashes. “By applying this serum to the upper eyelid at the base of the lashes once a day, you can actually grow out your own lashes, but longer, fuller, and darker,” says Dr. Kamani. “Most users begin to see results within 4 to 8 weeks, with the most dramatic results appearing after about 12 weeks of consistent use.” As a prescription serum, Latisse has to be prescribed by a doctor. There may be redness or itchiness due to ingredient sensitivity, but most users still report success. In fact, the product scores 4/5 for effectiveness and ease of use on WebMD. “Although eyelashes will eventually return to normal if patients cease using the product, Latisse is a terrific alternative for people who want longer lashes, are uncomfortable with the prospect of undergoing potentially damaging chemical procedures.” Dr. Kamani offers Latisse at her Medical Aesthetic clinic in Kitsilano. To learn more about Latisse and how it can stimulate the growth of longer, thicker, and darker eyelashes, schedule a free consultation with... read more
Mature Skincare: SkinCeuticals A.G.E Interrupter

Mature Skincare: SkinCeuticals A.G.E Interrupter

“Mature skincare isn’t just a matter of fighting a few wrinkles,” says Dr. Roz Kamani, a medical aesthetician in Vancouver. “As the body changes, the metabolism of the cells slow down. Buoyancy decreases as the synthesis of the collagen diminishes. “ Signs of Aging or Damaged Skin Hyperpigmentation Dehydration Fine skin Flaccidity Large, open pores Uneven colour While a beautiful complexion at any age is the result of many factors. Sun protection, lifestyle, diet, and the right products all play a pivotal role. And as a skincare specialist, Dr. Kamani only recommends skincare lines backed by science. “There are a lot of products that make promises, but very few actually test these claims,” explains Dr. Kamani. “SkinCeuticals is one of the few product lines that extensively test and back up each promise. And for clients who want the the very best mature skincare SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Interrupter was created specifically to combat the effects caused by advanced glycation end-products (A.G.E.), a major factor in the natural ageing process.” Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are proteins or lipids that become glycated as a result of exposure to sugar in the body. Basically, too much sugar ruins the skin. SkinCeutical’s anti-aging formula contains a 30% concentration of Pro-Xylane™, 4% blueberry extract, and 0.2% phytosphingosine. When synthesized, these ingredients improve the appearance of fine lines, and provide moisturize and comfort to dry, ageing skin. “This product is best used once or twice daily,” advises Dr. Kamani. “Just massage a thin, even layer onto the entire face, neck, and chest. If a Vitamin C serum is also being used, apply it after the serum–but before your sunscreen.” To learn... read more

Lip Enhancement: Using Volift to Restore or Enhance the Sensuality of Your Lips

To celebrate the month of love, Dr. Kamani is drawing attention to Volift, a lip enhancement (filler) by Juvèderm that can gently rejuvenate and beautify the lips and mouth “Volift is fantastic for people who want their lips to have a classic, poutier look,” says Dr. Kamani. “Before beginning , I consult with all patients. It’s important to consider the structure and shape of each face to ensure that the lips are properly balanced with other features. Not every shape works with every face. It’s important to take it step by step and work towards desired outcomes. By doing this, I can ensure every lip styling looks soft, shapely, and natural.” As one of the latest Juvèderm products, Volift is designed to be a smooth, natural looking, and long-lasting lip filler that minimizes swelling and discomfort. “Besides enhancing the lips, we can also rejuvenate the area around the mouth,” says Dr. Kamani. “This includes softening harsh lines, lifting creases, or even improving hydration and radiance. All process are non- surgical, and results we can achieve are truly spectacular.” Learn more about lip and perioral mouth rejuvenation by requesting a free consultation with Dr. Kamani at 604.222.9998.

Vancouver Medical Aesthetic Doctor Shares Tips Keeping Skin Beautiful All Winter Long

Vancouver Medical Aesthetic Doctor Shares Tips Keeping Skin Beautiful All Winter Long

As a Medical Aesthetic Doctor and Skin specialist, Dr. Kamani knows many people struggle with their skin in the winter. The cold, biting air coupled with low humidity robs skin of its moisture, in some cases to the point where it cracks and bleeds. Changing to a richer moisturizer is a quick fix for many people, but we have some additional tips to counteract the wintery weather and help keep your skin looking youthful and smooth. Change your Cleanser Cleansers can be extremely drying, especially if they contain ingredients like glycolic or salicylic acid. Instead, try incorporating a moisturizing or gentle cleanser. One we recommend is SkinCeuticals Gentle Cleanser. When you’re done cleansing, pat dry and immediately follow up with your toner, Vitamin C (CE Ferulic) and moisturizer of choice. Leaving your skin naked for as little as 30 seconds after cleansing can lead to dehydration and increased dryness. Drink (and Eat) your Water In the winter, we all tend to prefer warm comforting drinks, which means we drink less fresh water. In addition, tiny indulgences such as tea, coffee, and cocoa can lead to greater dehydration. If your skin is dry, it needs to be hydrated from the inside as well as the out. A little warm water with a few drops of lemon is both refreshing and hydrating at the same time. Incorporate foods that are high in water content like melon, tomatoes, cucumbers, apples, oranges, and kiwi. Exfoliate Regularly If your skin is dry, it is likely that more of it is sloughing off. If there is too much dead skin, it will be harder for... read more
