In the last few weeks, many of us have repeated the phrase “new year, new me.”
But the pressure of hitting new goals (all the while getting back in the swing of things at work and study) can make anyone exhausted. That’s why it’s key to schedule time for self-care in 2020, too.
Self-care can take many different forms, but to help you shine this year, we’ve teamed up with The One Skin Clinic to give away $15,000 worth of a facial treatment of your choice — that’s one session per month for a year!
If you’re not sure where to start your aesthetic journey, don’t worry. Dr. Charles Wong, one of BC’s most sought-after medical aesthetics physicians and the expert behind The One Skin Clinic, will work with you to create a custom treatment plan. Already well respected in his field, Wong achieves natural results with incredible artistic ability and mastery in his craft.
These are the five secrets to beautiful skin he expects to see over and over again in 2020.
Crow’s feet, drooping eyelids, forehead and chin wrinkles — these are things we all experience as we grow older (the joys). However, Botox treatments help you maintain a youthful appearance and combat any future fine lines, with results lasting from three to six months.
Wong believes that Botox for frown and forehead lines will always be in high demand. “Most people who try it once will be hooked.” Facial slimming with Botox is another big beauty secret as it creates a more v-shaped feminine look.
Celebrities have brought hyaluronic acid fillers (a naturally-produced substance in the skin) to the forefront, showcasing the power of injectables. “Most people know you can get fillers in the lips for a plumper look, but you can also use them to make your face slimmer with cheek fillers and to get rid of double chins with jawline and chin fillers,” says Wong.
The One Skin Clinic uses a selection of dermal fillers to add volume to the skin while boosting collagen. Results can last for six months to a year or more, depending on the area treated. However, Wong stresses the importance of having a medical professional inject your fillers to ensure safety and risk reduction.
Chances are you’ve already heard of micro-needling, a multi-purpose treatment that targets everything from acne scars to hyperpigmentation. Afraid of needles? No need to panic — the treatment only works on the surface level of your skin, and the pain level is similar to that of a pinprick or two.
The micro-needling technique used at The One Skin Clinic is unique in Vancouver. Why? Well, the clinic’s needles are composed of hardened nutrient-rich tips that dissolve under the skin once they penetrate the skin’s surface, offering an enormous difference to skin tissue damage.
A deep cleansing treatment, the Hydrofacial uses water and suction to remove impurities from clogged pores and congested skin, while exfoliating the surface of the skin. It’s a deep skin cleanse that infuses the skin with hydration, antioxidants, and nutrients.
Wong says the treatment appeals to many ages, complexions, and concerns. “It’s especially great for teenagers with acne; adults with pimples, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation; and for older patients with sun damage,” says Wong.
Not everyone feels comfortable about the idea of going under the knife for a cosmetic procedure — and in 2020, you don’t have to. Belkyra (Kybella in the US) is a substance known as deoxycholic acid, and it’s naturally secreted by the liver to metabolize fat.
Wong says this FDA-approved treatment is a fantastic way to permanently remove under-the-chin fat. “This will provide definition to the jawline and get rid of the double chin.”
These treatments only scratch the surface of options available at The One Skin Clinic. You can visit the clinic’s website now for more information and to book a consultation.
