Aesthetic Procedures such as Botox, Fillers, Lasers, Peels and Microderms continue to rise in popularity. Now more than ever patients are looking for treatments that offer fast results with little or no down time.
Since our expectations continue to rise the need for good pharmaceutical skin care, to maximise the treatment results has never been more important.
Think of your skin as if it were an artist’s canvas. When an artist begins with poor quality canvas and uses poor quality paint, it will make the results of his work unpredictable at best. Starting with a fresh, flawless canvas will certainly achieve a much more predictable result.
This holds true with our skin as well, be it acne, fine lines or difficult scarring. Getting your skin and your skin care regime under control first will give you a much more predictable Aesthetic result. By using pharmaceutical quality products you skin will heal faster, you will experience less down time, and you will achieve longer lasting results.
The same can be said for physical training. A client that is in top physical condition is more likely to recover faster from an operation, have more predictable results and less down time.
If your skin is not in a healthy condition you may not get the results that you hope for from your aesthetic procedure. Getting your skin to be as healthy as possible is the first step in any aesthetic treatment.
Once your skin has been treated by a skin care professional or physician you will want to protect your investment by maintaining your results.
As you continue to be exposed to pollution, sunlight, and daily stresses, you will continue to age naturally and experience hormonal changes, your skin will continue to experience damage. Much of this damage can be slowed or even prevented by using a combination of medical grade skin care products in addition to a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection daily.
Treating your skin will always be a process and can be compared to going to the dentist. You see your dentist every six months, but you still brush and floss in between. The same is true with treating your skin.
See our Doctors periodically throughout the year; maintain your beautiful skin with great skin care in between.

There are many different types of laser treatments available today. One of those options that is providing itself to be very effective is the Affirm laser treatment.
Affirm Laser is a laser system made by Cynosure that combines non-ablative fractional Nd: Yag laser and pulsed light technology to achieve comprehensive skin resurfacing, rejuvenation and tightening. Designed to provide maximum anti-aging benefits with the least possible amount of downtime, the Affirm Laser improves skin tone and texture by treating a variety of skin conditions in a series of 3 – 6 treatments.
This procedure combines fractional laser energy with a combined apex pulse (CAP) technology that is exclusive to this system. It allows for a more relaxed treatment that is more effective and has longer lasting results.
People who are seeking the best way to get rid of lines and facial wrinkles will want to consider fractional laser procedures like this one because they are effective and virtually side effect-free.
Physical beauty may only be skin deep, but how we feel about ourselves is often connected to how we feel we look. Over time, the reflection we see in the mirror doesn’t always represent that feeling.
A JUVÉDERM® treatment is an easy and instant cosmetic enhancement that gives you a refreshed look. It smoothes wrinkles and restores volume – reversing the signs of aging. It can also be used to enhance facial features such as your lips and cheeks for added fullness and definition with a natural look. A free consultation is the perfect way to find out if Juvederm might “be for you”, without obligation! Call 403 346-3376.
In today’s world, life has become very fast and many of us are not getting time to take care of ourselves. Apart from the regular exercise people do in gym and running in morning or evening, other care should also be taken for instance care of your skin etc. Usually skin problems are not related to any particular age and even children can experience skin problems. People start observing skin aging from the age of twenty-five. After the age of 25 you may notice some little changes in your face skin and then you may start feeling the need of some anti aging treatment.
There are many treatments and creams available in the market and online for anti aging treatment. At Aesthetic Solutions we love the Vivier Products (That includes the Skin TX and Platine products) It seems almost all the companies selling anti aging products promise great results but the fact is that not all treatments and creams are useful and you may even experience some side effects after using such treatments or creams, one of the reasons why we recommend this pharmaceutical grade skin care.
Laser treatment is fast and you may see the desired results very soon. If you are looking for laser treatment, the first step to take is to ask the advice of your skin doctor. Aesthetic Solutions is all about beautiful skin, and we are always ready to help!
Using a moisturizer with sun protection every single day is non-negotiable. Daily sun exposure can lead to skin cancer—period. I know you want to be tan, but you don’t want to be a beautiful corpse. It also causes brown spots. I’m living proof that sunscreen can make a difference. I used to walk my dog first thing every the morning without SPF—it was only five minutes a day—and I got dark spots.
You shouldn’t wait until wrinkles appear to start using anti-aging products. Collagen production starts declining in your late ‘20s, so that’s the ideal time to start using retinols, antioxidants, and collagen-boosters. Examine you face in the mirror, and ask yourself, Where will my wrinkles appear? You should concentrate on those areas.
Zapping zits at home is easy with the right tools. Mild cases of acne can be treated at home. Blue light devices are effective because they kill bacteria on the skin’s surface. For breakouts, use benzoyl peroxide, inflamed pimples, and salicylic acid if you have sensitive skin. Ask your consultant, here at Aesthetic Solutions to help you with choosing the right product for your skin. Peels are also a great way to get things under control!
Sunscreens with retinyl palmitate may do more harm than good. Patients are always surprised when they hear to avoid sunscreens with retinyl palmitate—check your favorite sunscreen, it’s probably there. Since it’s a derivative of retinol, it increases cell turnover and makes you more susceptible to sun damage. In this case, it’s actually better not to use a sunscreen at all than to use one with retinyl palmitate. A good alternative is EltaMD UV Physical SPF 41; it doesn’t clog your pores and it feels like there is nothing on your skin.
Dr. Badenhorst and Dr. Swarts do much more than just Botox and Fillers. People come into the office all the time for Botox and are surprised when we ask to check suspicious moles. Finding melanoma at its earliest stages helps in the long run. Once a small biopsy is done, it’s easier than you might think to get rid of those pesky moles and lesions. And by using one of our many laser techniques, scaring is not a concern. Redness from broken vessels is easily reduced or eliminated.
