Beauty through time -Vichy Lift Active Collagen and Hyalu Mask

As we are well aware aging is a natural process of life. The new innovations and technology in products blows my mind. Vichy has come out with some hot products in 2019 and I’m so excited to share them with you.

Say hello to the Vichy Lift Activ Collagen and Hyalu Mask. https://www.vichy.ca/en/liftactiv-collagen-specialist. Talk about a powerful duo and powerhouse in products!!

Growing old is an accomplishment – a precious gift that should be celebrated and appreciated. Unfortunately it is also a gateway to sagging skin, wrinkles, fine lines and hyperpigmentation – the undesirable side effects that creep up while you’re living life to the fullest.

Genetics, pollution, stress, UV damage, improper care and hormones are key factors in how well skin ages but we all have one thing in common – gradual collagen loss.

 

DID YOU KNOW! We start losing Collagen & Hyaluronic Acid by the age of 21? At 40, we lose on average 1% each year! (REALITY)

So what is Collagen and why is it sooo important?  https://www.vichy.ca/en/anti-aging-collagen/et-collagen-all-you-need.html

The Importance of Collagen

Collagen is the most abundant form of protein in the body, providing strength and structure for connective tissue. It is essential to the healthy functioning of skin, blood vessels, muscle, tendons, bone, ligaments and the digestive system.

Prevention is the most effective way to outsmart Mother Nature but certain products can also fortify and protect your skin.

Vichy’s new LiftActive Skincare is infused with 2 types of peptides capable of targeting collagen synthesis. It also includes 15 replenishing minerals and powerful anti-aging ingredients.

About the Product:

The Benefits of Vichy

LiftActive Collagen Specialist is a fragrant lightweight cream that smooths, moisturizes and tightens slack skin to improve sagging, texture and discoloration. The silky finish works well under makeup and creates a non-greasy barrier that shields against external aggressors. When used frequently, blemishes begin to fade and your profile may appear toned and defined. I don’t have wrinkles or fine lines but my complexion definitely looks even and hydrated.

The LiftActiv Hyalu Mask combines the regenerating power of Hyaluronic Acid and Agave Extract for instant replenishment, suppleness and radiance. If your complexion is dry, dull or fatigued, apply a thin layer of gel on clean skin, wait 5-10 minutes and remove the excess with a cotton pad (no need to rinse). Occasionally I layer the mask over the cream before bed and wash my face again in the morning. The rejuvenating layers lock-in moisture so I awake with a fresh dewy glow.

If I were to add one more product to my routine it would be the Vichy Mineral 89 https://www.vichy.ca/en/mineral89-with-hyaluronic-acid 

I have taken over 20 flights over the last 3 months and this routine has been a life saver when it comes to happy and hydrated skin. The price point and value is remarkable. Like any routine the journey starts from the inside out! and you have to be persistent with your routine. It takes a few weeks for the body to adjust and I’m sure you will be messaging me to say how in love you are -))

Cant wait to hear about your thoughts

BTL Emsculpt – 20 000 Squats in 30 Minutes NO Problem!

BTL EMSCULPT® to Improve Shape and Tone Your Stomach and Buttocks

Let me start off by staying you WILL NOT have to do 20 000 squats or crunches -))

I went in the Ottawa Skin Clinic a few months ago to try and find a solution for my Abdomen and Butt. My main concern was muscle toning and fat loss on those two particular areas.  After having kids and working hard for years I was finally seeking some professional advice. You may of heard of the 2017/2018 surge of surgical procedures to shape and tone an hour glass figure. I am definitely not that daring and I was Ultimately thrilled to hear about the Non Invasive EMSCULPT technology.

 

Here is a brief summary: This is WAY too cool -))

Using High Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic (HIFEM) technology, EMSculpt induces supramaximal muscle contractions not achievable through exercise (or voluntary contractions). During normal voluntary muscle contractions the muscle fibers relax between each nervous stimulus. EMSculpt generates impulses at such a rapid frequency that it doesn’t allow such a relaxation phase. Supramaximal contractions cause an enhanced adrenaline release, which triggers an intensive lipolysis response in fat cells. When exposed to the supramaximal contractions, the muscle tissue is forced to adapt, responding with a deep remodeling of its inner structure that results in muscle building and fat burning.

 

Some Fun Facts :

On average, the following were achieved in clinical studies on healthy patients:

  • (1.5 inches) loss in waistline circumference
  • 16% increase in muscle mass
  • 11% reduction in abdominal muscle separation (called diastasis recti)
  • 5 x increase in fat metabolism (apoptotic index increased from 19% to 92% after treatment)
  • 80% patients with visible lifting effect of buttocks
  • 96% patient satisfaction
  • Here are a list of questions that I asked Dr Michon and his team of professionals.

FAQ’s

AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR EMSCULPT?
This treatment is ideal for individuals with a low BMI who may not be eligible for other body contouring procedures. Emsculpt is very effective in eliminating small pockets of fat on individuals who are physically fit. This technology has the potential to provide beneficial muscle tightening in anyone. A complimentary consultation is the best way to find out if you are a candidate for this procedure.

HOW MUCH DOES THE EMSCULPT PROCEDURE COST? $750 per treatment

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO PREPARE FOR EMSCULPT TREATMENT?
Prior to the treatment you are not required to do anything special.

WHAT IS THE DAY OF TREATMENT LIKE?
On the day of the treatment, you are advised to wear comfortable clothing which allows flexibility for correct positioning during the treatment. You will be asked to remove all jewelry and electronic devices.

HOW LONG DOES AN EMSCULPT TREATMENT SESSION TAKE?
EMSculpt treatment sessions typically takes 30 minutes.

HOW MANY EMSCULPT TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
To maximize efficacy, we recommend a series of four treatments with sessions separated by at least two days.

DOES EMSCULPT HURT?
The procedure itself is painless. No anesthetic is required. You sit back while two panels are used to apply the High Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic energy. The sensation during the treatment is best compared to how your muscles feel during an intense workout.

EMSCULPT TREATMENT SUCCESS
Successful Emsculpt treatment outcome can be affected by smoking or excessive alcohol consumption, as well as: eating disorders or on-going medication. While no special diet is required, you are encouraged to eat healthy to help promote and maintain results.

HOW IS EMSCULPT TREATMENT RECOVERY?
There is no recovery period or downtime, and you can immediately resume your normal activities. The following day, you may experience muscle soreness similar to what you would feel after an intense workout.

IS THE EMSCULPT PROCEDURE SAFE?
Emsculpt is FDA-approved.

CAN I RETURN TO NORMAL ACTIVITIES AFTER MY TREATMENT?
Yes, you can. Mild soreness similar to that after a muscle workout is a normal and expected side effect from Emsculpt treatment. Often times, patients return to work after their Emsculpt session is over.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Results from Emsculpt can be seen between 2 – 6 weeks from the first treatment. These results continue to improve over a six-month period. Emsculpt treatment can be continued past four sessions for even more noticeable results.
