Topics In Cosmetic Medicine

Why is Vitamin C important for maintaining a healthy complexion and healing damaged skin?

 Research in skincare has revealed some new, novel ingredients that can help us maintain great skin (for example – stay tuned for news about Exosomes), but it’s worth taking a closer look at Vitamin C, an ingredient in many skincare products.

Why Is Vitamin C Important?

Our skin is the body’s largest organ, and it performs a lot of vital functions for us, including providing a barrier to harmful things in our environment. Think of your skin as a forcefield, constantly being bombarded by harmful UV radiation and pollutants, irritants and toxins. Those things gradually damage our skin barrier through a process called oxidation, which is part of the aging process.

Vitamin C has been shown in studies to help prevent oxidation by scavenging, or mopping up free radicals, which are damaging compounds that are part of the oxidative process. Vitamin C has also been shown to play a role in production of collagen.

Through complex interactions with many other important compounds including metalloproteins and vitamin E, it can also turn off melanin production, help maintain the skin’s elastin, and exert an anti-inflammatory effect.

Not all topical Vitamin C formulations are created equal, and to be effective, Vitamin C in a skincare product needs to be formulated in a manner that is “bioavailable,” meaning the skin can absorb and use it (for example, altering the pH of a skin cream or serum will alter how much Vitamin C is absorbed).

Products manufactured by medical-grade skincare companies specifically include highly bioavailable forms of Vitamin C, packaged in containers that ensure they will be stable (for example, Vitamin C in a clear bottle will break down due to light exposure).

Some of the proven benefits of topical Vitamin C include:

  1. 1. Protection from photoaging.
  2. 2. Protection against photo carcinogenesis – i.e. Vitamin C can offer some protection from skin cancer.
  3. 3. Aiding and speeding wound healing.

This translates into some big-time positive effects of regular use of vitamin C.

Seven Benefits of Vitamin C

  1. 1. Reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
  2. 2. Reduces pigment and brown spots.
  3. 3. Reduces redness and development of broken blood vessels.
  4. 4. Maintains skin elasticity and improves texture.
  5. 5. Reduces Sebum production and acne outbreaks.
  6. 6. Heals damaged or injured skin.
  7. 7. Helps reduce scarring.

These last two properties are worth considering when recovering from procedures such as microneedling, facelift or neck lift surgery, or even when healing from liposuction, breast augmentation, or tummy tuck.

      Hi Elaine Just checking in to make sure you obtained an appointment regarding IPL? Just wanted to let you known we don’t usually look after appointment scheduling through the newsletter, so that’s why things might have slipped through the cracks- We will honour the Dec deal for you if you are still interested!

    • Sandy says:

      Hello Carsta Thanks so much for your interest in Chin Liposuction at our clinic. The cost is typically $2250, though it can vary somewhat if someone has either a very small or very large amount of fat. Belkyra is also an option for treatment of fat under the chin. If you are interested in coming on for a consultation to discuss options and assess whether liposuction is the right choice for you, please contact us at 905-273-3045. We do not schedule appointments through the newsletter reply area

      Hello G Thanks for your interest in injections at our clinic.
      Unfortunately we will not be able to contact you to update you about specials based on a reply to the newsletter alone. We do not have a mechanism to store your information via this field. If you sign up to receive our newsletters, you will receive them monthly, along with our specials! Hope that helps!

  • Nellie says:

    About your promotion above….how can the three IPL treatments be used by Feb 28 if they must be spaced apart at least 2 weeks to a month? Do you mean the first of 3 must be used by Feb 28?

    • Sandy, patient coordinator says:

      Hello Nellie Thanks for your question regarding IPL. Treatments every two weeks would allow 3 treatments over this time period. Having said that, we are usually somewhat flexible about scheduling for our specials, so if there was a good reason to stretch out the treatment dates, we try to accommodate. Due to Holiday closures, and a lot of belated interest in the IPL special, we are extending this promotion throughout January. If you are interested in IPL, by all means book a consultation appointment by calling us at 905-273-3045, or you can contact me at Please be aware we can’t schedule appointments through this newsletter reply field. Wishing you a very Happy New Year!
