EndermologieTM IS the science of cell stimulation developed by LPG. This is the only cellulite treatment in Canada that is FDA approved to claim cellulite reduction. LPG Mechano-stimulation reactivates fibroblasts and adipocytes - the cells responsible for youthful skin and weight loss.

One can notice results after approximately four treatments. Focus is on two problem areas at a time, but the rest of the body is also treated in order to stimulate the entire circulation and lymph drainage system. The benefits last several months and sometimes up to several years if maintenance is kept up. Age, lifestyle, nutrition and hormonal conditions also affect the result. Click here for more info.

Stress Management with Dr. LaForge

Whether from a charging lion or a pending deadline, the body’s response to stress can be both helpful and harmful. The stress response gives us the strength and speed to ward off or flee from an impending threat. But when it persists, stress can put us at risk for obesity, heart disease, cancer, and a variety of other illnesses. A powerful and precise non-invasive assay, the Adrenocortex Stress Profile, evaluates bioactive levels of the body's important stress hormones, cortisol and DHEA. This profile serves as a critical tool for uncovering biochemical imbalances that can underlie anxiety, chronic fatigue, obesity, diabetes and a host of other clinical conditions. It's also a crucial tool for monitoring DHEA and/or cortisone therapy.

Changing amounts of DHEA and cortisol over an individual's lifetime may signal important alterations in adrenal function that can profoundly affect his/her energy levels, emotional state, disease resistance, and general sense of well-being. This is because adrenal hormones exert a profound influence on the body's carbohydrate, protein, and lipid metabolism, immune response, thyroid function, cardiovascular health, and overall resistance to stress.

PRGF (Platelet Rich Plasma with Growth Factor)

PRGF is a safe procedure utilized in aesthetic medicine to rejuvenate and slow down the ageing process of the hands and face.

It's a biological and natural approach to facial rejuvenation to regenerate with your own cells. Restore and enhance areas that require plumping, leaving a glowing complexion of improved texture and tone.

PRGF will plump, improve the texture of the skin and soften scars and wrinkles. While it takes 4 to 6 weeks to begin to see the benefits of PRGF, the results and improvement continues for the next 8 months as more collagen and elastin is laid under the skin. The results typically last two years or longer because the growth factors continue to stimulate the creation of new collagen and tissue long after the initial treatment.

This procedure is completely different to Dermal Fillers and has a different result. Dermal fillers restore lost volume by injecting Hyaluronic Acid into the areas where volume is lost. PRGF does not create that effect and will not volumize but rather plump and rejuvenate the quality and texture of the skin. It has a great effect on fine lines and wrinkles. These two procedures can be combined into one.

Areas treated
  • Thighs and buttock stretch marks
  • Scars
  • Eyes
  • Naksolabial lines, marionette lines and chin, face

Dermal Needling

Improve texture and rejuvenate with Collagen Induction Therapy Reducing:
  • Acne scarring
  • Lines and wrinkles (best in combination with (PRP) PRGF)
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Thin, crepe-like skin
  • Stretch marks
Micro-needling is the most effective way to induce new skin growth with unparalleled collagen induction via fractional delivery of micro-needles into the epidermis and dermis, harnessing the body’s ability to repair the skin through collagen induction. Promoting a process of new skin growth through the science of Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT).

Your skin naturally heals itself every 45 days, so with a little micro-needling stimulation, changes can be dramatic and fast.
