Laura Talks Quick Fixes at TCSC.

We all know that good things come to those who wait. But we’re living in the modern world, and it moves fast! The good news is that looking your best doesn’t always have to take a lot of time.

The Cosmetic Surgery Clinic offers a variety of non-surgical procedures in Waterloo that provide immediate or fast-acting results without serious downtime. Yes, our more intensive treatments such as the Profractional laser or the ZO® Blue Peel do fantastic things for your face, but we understand that not everyone’s schedule can accommodate the social downtime to recover from these treatments. Sometimes your skin just needs a quick refresh, without monopolizing your calendar (or your wallet).

If you’re feeling dissatisfied with the current state of your skin, come see our Beauty Nurse® team to reclaim your natural radiance. I’ve put together some of our most popular and easy treatments that won’t break the bank, so you can focus on everything else you’ve got going on and look great while you do it.

Chemical Peel
A chemical peel is your ticket to healthy skin tone and texture by smoothing fine lines, clearing acne blemishes, and exfoliating to refresh your skin.

Treatments are quick (only 20 – 30 minutes) and won’t disrupt your day because there is no downtime afterwards. (Well, okay, just a little – at most you can expect some light peeling and you will need to avoid too much sun exposure.) We recommend continuing regular treatments to see best results, but you’ll notice fresh and glowing skin after just one, and that will last for a few weeks. The best part is that chemical peels aren’t going to stop you from living your best life – ranging between $100 – $200, you won’t be worried about choosing between beautiful skin and your social life.

Beauty Nurse Lauren loves doing chemical peels and can usually accommodate an appointment anywhere within a few days to a few weeks.

BOTOX COSMETIC® 
Worried about wrinkles? BOTOX is one of our most popular treatments, done by Beauty Nurse Majid. These injections are done to reverse, or prevent, signs of aging by relaxing the muscles that cause our wrinkles. That said, you’re not going to leave us looking fake or stiff. We go for a natural approach that will still let you smile and be expressive, but will have your friends wondering why you look 5 years younger.

Common treatment areas for BOTOX include:

  • Worry lines (across your forehead)
  • Frown lines (between your brows)
  • Crow’s feet(outer corners of your eyes)

A treatment with Majid takes 30 minutes; your only limitations are to remain upright and not exercise for 4 hours afterwards. You’ll see results within 2 weeks and they’ll last for 3-4 months. BOTOX costs $11 per unit plus tax. Majid books approximately 3-6 weeks ahead.

ThermiSmooth®
Fine lines and sagging skin around the eyes or the mouth can be addressed with ThermiSmooth. Radiofrequency and a temperature-controlled handpiece are used to deliver heat beneath the skin in order to increase collagen production, triggering your skin’s healing process. It’s non-surgical, non-invasive, and totally comfortable – the experience has been likened to a warm massage.

There’s also the fact that you get to hang out with Beauty Nurse Lauren for an hour-long session. You should expect to do a series of 4 treatments, about a month apart, in order to get radiant results that last upwards of one year. The best part is that there is zero downtime after this treatment. You’ll leave the Clinic feeling and looking rejuvenated, and free to go right back to whatever you were succeeding at.
Pricing is approximately $330 plus tax per treatment or you can bundle them in a package to save. You’ll want to pre-book all 4 treatments, so you have something to look forward to!

Juvéderm® VOLITE
VOLITE is one of our favourite treatments to enhance your natural beauty. It’s an anti-aging, injectable treatment that works to improve your skin’s quality from within. VOLITE’s long list of benefits include:

  • Aids in skin hydration, elasticity, and softness
  • Plumps your skin
  • Stimulates collagen production
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines

Treatment areas include the face, neck, hands, and chest.

The treatment is painless thanks to anesthetic lidocaine contained in the product. It will only take an hour with Beauty Nurse Majid to create a youthful glow that will last for up to 9 months. As for downtime? It’s basically non-existent. There are no restrictions on your activities following treatment, so you can keep up with your regular routine. You may experience some redness or bruising, which typically resolves within a few days.

Pricing for Juvéderm VOLITE is $600 plus tax per syringe – a total steal if you consider that it’s only about $65 for each of the 9 months you’re experiencing those great results. (This method of price breakdown is why I have too many shoes.) Beauty Nurse Majid can get you glowing within the month, so you can continue doing you with an extra bit of confidence!
