At Kitsilano Medical Aesthetics, our mission is to help people feel and look good. As spring arrives in Vancouver, we’re all ready to get out, socialize, and enjoy the best the city has to offer. 

As a team specializing in non-surgical medical aesthetics, our mission is to help patients in every aspect of their self-care journey. For those considering a quick spring pick-me-up, we wanted to introduce five of the most popular facial procedures in North America based on data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).

Botulism Toxin Type A (Botox)

You might not be aware of this, but the most popular dermal modulator, commonly called Botox, was developed right here in Vancouver. More commonly referred to as neuromodulators by the medical community, these injectables are widely used to target and correct common signs of aging. Neuromodulators smooth deep and dynamic facial lines and wrinkles—crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, glabellar lines, etc. Dermal modulators can refresh and relax the face. Results become visible after a few days, with full results after approximately two weeks, making it an effective treatment for those targeting quick results!

Hyaluronic Acid – Soft Tissue Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers have long been a popular method to address signs of ageing in the face. They subtly restore volume, tighten sagging skin, and enhance areas like the cheeks or lips, which can sag and deflate as we age. Using advanced techniques, Dr. Kamani & her team aim for beautiful outcomes that look natural. As a substance already found in the body, hyaluronic acid works by drawing in and retaining water, gently rejuvenating areas where there has been a noticeable loss of collagen and elastin to enhance and revitalize the appearance of the face.

IPL Treatments

IPL, or Intense Pulse Light Laser treatments, recently edged out Laser Skin Resurfacing to claim a spot in the top five minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. IPL is a fantastic treatment for people looking for evidence-based solutions to refine and resurface skin. At the Kitsilano Medical Aesthetics, Dr. Kamani uses IPL to address acne, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and age spots caused by sun damage, redness, and scars.  IPL works beautifully to smooth out acne pits and scarring, making it a popular treatment for teenagers, too.  While most patients require two or three treatments, improvements can be noticeable after just one treatment. Our team will work with you to determine the best option to meet your needs and goals.

Chemical Peels

Why do chemical peels remain a sought-after beauty staple? They can be performed in-office, have little to no downtime, and immediately boost the skin’s vitality. Chemical peels may sound scary, but today’s formulas are gentler and help improve skin tone and texture by exfoliating and removing the outermost, damaged layer of skin. Schedule a chemical peel to address concerns like acne, lines and wrinkles, uneven skin textures, scarring, and environmental damage. Dr. Kamani will work one-on-one to determine the right peel for your needs.
