Microneedling/PRP

Microneedling is used for skin rejuvenation or collagen induction therapy.  Multiple tiny needles pierce the skin, naturally promoting growth factors, collagen and elastin formation.  The result is tighter and more plump skin, pigments and blemishes are lightened, fine lines are dimished, scars are improved.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) or Vampire Facelift - After a blood sample is obtained, the blood is put into a centrifuge to seperate the PRP from the blood.  The PRP is placed on the face before microneedling.  PRP contains highly concentrated amounts of natural growth factors and cytokines that promote regeneration of collagen.

May require 3-6 treatments 1 month apart. Results are permanent, however we continue to age so maintenance every 6-12 months is suggested. 

If treatment is on the face, please come with no makeup. Face will be reddened for 4hours -24 hours (like a sunburn). Avoid sun exposure for 2-3 days or wear sunscreen and/or a hat.

Sclerotherapy

Injection of a solution or foam into varicose veins, causing a reaction in the walls of the veins. This leads to hardening or “sclerosis” of the veins. Blood flow is directed to healthier veins and the treated veins are eventually absorbed by the body. May do under ultrasound guidance if needed.

For sclerotherapy to work best, compression stockings should be worn during the day and taken off at night for 3-14 days after treatment. These can be purchased in most pharmacies. Regular exercise helps prevent complications and reoccurrences.

Can resume normal activities after treatment. Walking is recommended immediately after so blood will be pushed through other vessels .

Avoid vigorous activity for 24-48 hours. Avoid high impact activity and weight lifting for 7 days. Avoid hot tubs and saunas for 7 days.

Cellulite Reduction - Ultrasound Cavitation Vacuum Radiofrequency

Ultrasonic cavitation vibrates fat cells, generating microbubbles into fatty tissue. The bubbles increase hydrostatic pressure causing fat cells to break open. The vacuum RF helps empty the fat cells, tightens skin and increases circulation to help remove contents of fat cell through lymphatic system.

Each treatment lasts 30 mininutes.  For maximum results may need up to 6-8 treatments.  Can immedidiatley return to normal daily activities after treatment.

Great for circumferential weight loss, toning and cellulite reduction.

                                                 


Laser Genesis - Nd:YAG Laser Genesis


Laser Genesis is laser technology that safely, naturally, and effectively rejuvenates skin by gently heating the skins's dermis.  The heat stimulates collagen and elastin production resulting in firmer and glowing skin.

The results from an individual treatment is subtle but the effect after 4-6 treatments is dramatic.  Fine lines and pores are reduced, pigments and scars diminished and uneven skin texture improved.  Reverse the signs of aging and promote a vibrant, healthy complexion.

The most common side effect is redness that usually resolves in a few hours.  Stay out of the sun for 72 hours and wear a hat and/or sunscreen.
                                                 

 






Cutera Limelight / Photo-rejuvenation / IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)

Multiple wavelengths of light customized for your face improves discoloration, such as brown spots, redness, capillaries, or uneven skin tone.  The light also stimulates collagen and elastin formation resulting in a more youthful appearance.  

Some discoloration can be treated in 1-2 treatments. Typically 2-6 are needed for optimal results.  

The most common side effect is redness that usually resolves in a few hours.  After treatment, stay out of the sun for 72 hours and wear a hat and/or sunscreen.



        

Cutera TruSculpt 3D

Dr Haverluck is excited to be the first to offer this technology in Manitoba.  TruSculpt 3D is the newest advancement in non surgical body sculpting that offers permanent fat reduction and tightening in a single session.  

On average a 24% fat thickness reduction is seen after 1 treatment, and some lose up to 30% after 1 session.  Can treat abdomen, flanks, bra line, under chin, entire thighs and arms.

Radio frequency heat heats subcutaneous tissues causing fat cell death.  The radio frequency tightens the skin at the same time.  The body's immune system breaks down and flushes out the fat cells that were treated.  You will start to see results in 2 weeks and continue to see improvements for 3 months. 








Cutera Laser Hair Removal / Prowave LX Hair Removal

Pulses of laser or light damages the hair follicle preventing its ability to grow back resulting in permanent hair removal.  It requires 4-6 treatments 6-8 weeks apart because hair grows in different phases - it can take 6-12 weeks to grow from root to surface. 

Side effects may include redness and swelling in the treated area.

Do not tweeze, wax, use a depilatory, or undergo electrolysis in the area being treated for 6 weeks.  
 

   



Laser Vein Therapy - Nd:YAG Vascular

Pulses of light energy coagulate blood in the vessels treated.  Blood flow is directed away from the damaged vessels to veins and capillaries deeper below the skin surface.  The damaged treated vessels are later absorbed by the body.  

Laser vein therapy can treat vessels on all areas of the body, hemangiomas, warts and nail fungus. One - two treatments is usually sufficient, but may need up to 6.
