Finally spring is here (despite a few snowy setbacks!). We were delighted to host all those who attended our most recent fun educational event on facial rejuvenation, fashion and body contouring. What a great turn out! I think everyone present will agree Sylvia from Tofano's Boutique in Ancaster brought some gorgeous clothes, and Tanya from Medicis made a beautiful model! To help you all fit into those form fitting fashions, Liposonix continues to be an exciting non invasive option for reduction of those pesky tummy bulge and love handles, and Dr. Weinberg did a terrific job explaining the technology. And, congratulations to all our lucky draw winners! We had some wonderful prizes donated, including a basket of fabulous skin care products from Obaji, some microdermabrasion/Peel gift certificates, and our grand prize was a package of 3 syringes of Restylane!

We also had another afternoon treat recently when our visiting make up artist from Glominerals attended the clinic for complimentary makeovers. Stay tuned for future opportunities to take advantage of her wizardry!

In other interesting clinic news, Dr. Weinberg received a surprise invitation to be interviewed live on Talk Radio 1010 with Mike Bullard! He spoke about popular cosmetic procedures among men, including breast reduction, liposuction, liposonix, tummy tuck and injectables - and Skincare! Yes, that's right ladies, men are starting to look after their complexion. So, don't let the fellas out do you! As mentioned in our last newsletter, it's the time of year we turn to thinking of renewal, and there is no time like the present to think about turning over a new leaf in your skin care regimen. To help you in your pursuit of an improved complexion this spring, we are very excited to announce the introduction of a fantastic new line of affordable products to the clinic, SwissTEC by Clarion! Also, don't miss out on our latest promotion - see below for details.

SwissTEC Skin Health

In the pursuit of healthy, attractive skin, it's easy to get confused by the many options out there. Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons agree that a good home skin care program can help you look your best and can enhance the benefits you get from in office procedures. At MCSC we carry only a handful of hand picked skin care lines that in our view offer excellent benefits at a good price point. Each has it's own role. Obaji offers a tried and true line of products that offer significant correction of specific skin conditions. Often it is necessary to wait several weeks or longer after completing an in office series of treatments before beginning some of the Obaji treatments. SwissTEC, on the other hand, offers excellent products ideal for skin care immediately after clinic procedures, and also offers several simple and straight forward systems for basic cleansing, moisturizing and protecting for any skin type, while at the same time providing exclusive, high performance, medical grade ingredients. SwissTEC products can compliment those from Obaji and can be used in combination with Retin A. Free of skin irritants like parabens, alcohols, and petroleum, these products contain therapeutic biologic ingredients and plant extracts exclusive to SwissTEC, and native to Switzerland where they have been scientifically developed over the last half century under the most arduous laboratory standards, and where they continue to be manufactured. They are produced in an eco-friendly environment, and have been developed in the absence of any animal testing. Some of the trademarked active ingredients in SwissTEC products include:

  • CIC2: Slows the signs of aging, lightening the look of brown spots while enhancing skin renewal and radiance.
  • Aquarich™: Optimizes the moisture retention in the epidermis while having a long lasting strengthening effect on the skin barrier properties. Long term moisturization effect and a strong immediate moisturizing effect.
  • Ameliox: Reverses the signs of deterioration to the skin's elastic tissue to reduce the appearance of lines of expression and wrinkles. After 4 weeks: frown lines are decreased by 24%. Wrinkle depth of crows feet decreases by 27%. Of 20 women surveyed on the test panel after 4 weeks of use:
    • 90% claimed immediate smoothing effect.
    • 85% claimed reduction in frown lines.
    • 90% claimed skin firmness is improved.
    • 85% claimed a visible reduction of fine lines/wrinkles.
  • Sveltonyl®: This firming complex renews skin's appearance, enhancing the look of tighter, youthful skin.
  • Pentavitin®: A highly effective moisture regulator under the driest of conditions. Moisture binding capacity reaches 160% after 10 minutes compared to Glycerin which only reaches 130% in the same timeframe.
  • Vitamin C-PMG: Reduces the appearance of dark circles, wrinkles and photodamage due to its free-radical scavenging effect. MAP is a stable form of Vitamin C and remains stable in an aqueous solution. Proven to actively aid in collagen reformation and decrease melanin (pigment) formulation in the skin.
  • Panthenol: Has an anti-inflammatory effect and soothes irritated skin. It stimulates epithelization and helps to heal minor wounds.
  • EvermatTM: Refines the texture of the skin, decreasing the appearance of enlarged pores and shine. When 3% EvermatTM is used: Skin-shine reduced by 55% Pore size reduced by 36% Sebum flow reduced by 49%.
  • Aquaxyl: an antioxidant rich cocktail containing vitamins A, B2 and C enhances the remineralization and appearance of the skin on application.
  • Oleuropein: Improves appearance of elasticity while absorbing oil and deep cleansing pores.
  • Algisium C2: Restores the feel of moisture, soothing dehydrated skin.
