Cosmetic Acupuncture is an effective, non-surgical treatment to reduce the signs of aging. It is based on the principles of Chinese Medicine, which involves the insertion of very thin disposable needles into the acupuncture points on the face. This superficial insertion will increase the local circulation to the face and stimulate collagen production, which will fill out the lines and give firmness to the skin for a healthy, glowing complexion.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage Facial
Various lymphatic drainage techniques and acupressure points are used to energize the face and provide esthetic benefits. Facial manual lymphatic drainage therapy works in the same way as regular MLD. It is a gentle facial massage done to stimulate the lymphatic system.
Light pressure moves fluid from the face. It can help with acne, wrinkles, puffiness and other skin conditions.
Stephanie Langlais RMT is the only therapist at the clinic that does this treatment.

Fibrobast Plasma Lift
Fibroblast Plasma Lift is a non surgical, non invasive skin rejuvenation technique that is designed to boost collagen production leading to tightening and lifting of the skin.
Plasma Lift works similarly to an ablative (fractional) laser. A device fitted with a tiny needle is used to deliver heat and an electrical charge to the skin to tighten and firm it. The electrical current is directed to specific skin cells to encourage growth and renewal. This not only improves the skin tone and texture but it can also reduce scarring, improve a number of common skin problems and change the contour of the skin. Plasma Lift removes or reduces fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, uneven coloration, sagging skin on your neck or tummy, and skin imperfections. The results are comparable to plastic surgery, and in most areas are permanent.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Results are seen immediately after one treatment, and your skin will continue to tighten as it heals over the next 1-2 months. Occasionally a second treatment is needed for cases with a lot of excess skin, and in extreme cases, up to 4 treatments may be needed. For wrinkle removal in areas of the face that are cause by muscle movement. Botox is recommended to prevent wrinkles from returning.The first 24 hours after your plasma lift, your skin may feel like it is sunburnt and you will have tiny little brown spots in a grid where the skin was treated. There will be some tiny brown marks that have the appearance of minor scabbing, which are carbon crusts, but in 5-7 days these will flake away, revealing new pink skin beneath. Some swelling will be seen (especially in cases of eyelid treatment), but it is likely to only last 3-5 days at most. Swelling in the eye area is to be expected for a few days following an upper eyelid treatment. To avoid any more serious side effects such as hyperpigmentation, follow the aftercare recommendations given to you by your technician. Only special makeup and aftercare can be used on the skin for the first 3-5 days – which will be provided for you. Once the brown spots fall off, skin may appear slightly pinkish for anywhere from 2 weeks – 2 months. Makeup can be worn as normal to cover this up. A 50 SPF sunscreen or higher must be worn every day to avoid hyperpigmentation.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST: Fibroblast Plasma Skin Tightening is more than a simple tightening treatment so the effects should last as long as they would with invasive surgery. Like all surgical and cosmetic procedures, the effects of plasma treatment are not entirely permanent as it does not stop any further aging. But, the positive results should last years depending on the area treated. The positive effects of treatment will be noticeable immediately after the first treatment, but the best results will be seen after 4 weeks.
