MCSC Newsletter March 2018

It’s come in like a lion and we are so looking forward to it leaving like a lamb! Unfortunately this March still seems much more winter than spring, but we know it can’t be long now. Take advantage of the persistent winter climate, and treat your skin to the treatments that are best done out of the sun- Like Peels. Best done when you won’t be overly exposed to UV, peels are a great way to spruce up dull tired winter skin.  See the add at the end of this newsletter for Peel Promo on this month.

Clinic News

Dr. Weinberg was invited to give a talk on Liposuction to the Dermatology residents at University of Toronto this past month, which was as always very well received. In his duties as the new President of CLASS, he’s also been busy organizing the line up of speakers for the CLASS symposium which will take place in Montreal in the Fall. Our staff at MCSC enjoyed two educational visits from our skin care reps from Alumier, as well as Universkin.

What Can We Do About Under Eye Bags?

The under eye area is one that bothers many of our patients. When attempting to improve the appearance of that part of the face, it’s important to identify exactly what the problem is. Some people have dark circle under the eyes, whereas others have a “bag”. A bag is distinctly different than dark circles. Most often , dark circles are caused by a hollow underneath the eye. The dark appearance is caused by the shadow of the hollow, and sometimes also because the skin under the eye is in fact more pigmented. The area may also look dark because the skin is thin and bluish veins, which have a dark appearance, can be partially seen through the skin.

An under-eye bag is to some degree the opposite, in that rather than a hollow a bag is an out –pouching of fat.

These two problems can often co-exist. So, many patients have a small pouch of fat, under which is a sharply demarcated hollow.

Hollows under the eyes can often be very well addressed with filler. Well placed filler in the hollow, referred to as the “ tear trough”, can make a very great improvement to the appearance of the under eye area, and can often give one’s face a much less tired look. As this is a very delicate area, with many blood vessels, and as it is near the eye, only a highly trained injector with lots of experience should inject this area. When Dr. Weinberg treats this region, he uses only very thin filler products, injects with a cannula, and uses only small amounts with under correction to minimize complications.

An under eye bag, if large, can really only be well addressed surgically. However, in people in whom both a bag and a hollow co-exist, when the bag is not too large, filler can again be used. In these cases filler is often place in both the under-eye hollow as well as in the cheek, thereby concealing the presence of under eye fat. This is a very technically challenging method if injection, and again should only be done by someone with enormous experience.

If you are unhappy with your under – eye area, come in for a consultation to find out your options- call 905-273-3045 in Mississauga, 416-207-9090.

      Hi Elaine Just checking in to make sure you obtained an appointment regarding IPL?

    Let me know when u have a promo on injections alone.

    • Sandy, patient coordinator says:

      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!

  6. 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 sandy@mcsconline.com. Please be aware we can’t schedule appointments through this newsletter reply field. Wishing you a very Happy New Year!
