Summer 2023’s Four Must-Try, Non-Invasive Facial Tweaks

For us Canadians, summertime is all about stripping off the layers of wool and fleece and spending as much time as humanly possible outside in the sunshine. Like bears waking up from hibernation and crawling out of their dark caves, we too feel the need to breathe in the fresh air and make up for time spent inside by packing in as much fun in the sun as we can. So it only makes sense that summer is our most active and social season of all.

Our calendars are filled with friendly bbqs, rounds of golf and tennis, and drinks on the patio. Additionally, there are long weekends booked for camping, tasting the latest rosés in wine country and attending weddings, birthdays and anniversaries. With everything going on, combined with a need to feel and look our best, scheduling a non-invasive facial tweak to keep us stay summer fresh all season long, is just smart thinking.

So smart, in fact, that many have indulged. According to a 2022 survey by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, 82 per cent of the total number of procedures performed in 2022 were minimally invasive. Now, non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments are on the rise. And while you can get anything from Botox to microdermabrasion, the experts at 8 West, Vancouver’s popular cosmetic surgery and skin clinic, have chosen four, quick and easy non-invasive refreshers with natural-looking results to try now. Bonus points: each tweak can be achieved over your lunch hour.

Tweak #1: EMFACE
New to 8 West, this celebrity-favoured treatment targets skin and facial muscles using synchronized radiofrequency (RF) energy with high intensity facial electromagnetic stimulation (HIFES) to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. “It also enhances facial contours and improves skin texture,” say the 8 West experts. “Studies showed an average 37 per cent reduction in wrinkles, 30 per cent increase in facial muscle tone and a 23 per cent lifting effect.”

Tweak #2: RF Microneedling
One of the most popular facial rejuvenation treatments on the market, RF Microneedling provides both short-term and long-term skin benefits for every skin type. “From diminished pore size and improved skin tone and texture to scar and wrinkle reduction, RF Microneedling is beloved by many for the natural results it delivers and its suitability all-year round,” say the 8 West experts.

Tweak 3: Dermal Fillers
These injectables can restore facial volume loss and add subtle contour and balance to your facial features—all, of course, while taking a few years off your face. And who doesn’t like that? “Fillers are a quick, no-downtime treatment that offers immediate and natural looking results for up to two years,” affirm “[We] only use the highest quality fillers for facial rejuvenation that meet the highest standards set by the FDA and Health Canada.”

Tweak #4: Halo Laser
If you’ve ever coveted Pharrell Williams’ agelessness ore Drake’s seemingly poreless complexion, the Halo Laser treatment can help get you a step closer to your facial dreams. Its advanced technology addresses a range of common skin problems and imperfections with minimal downtime and recovery. “It’s especially well-suited for addressing enlarged pores, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, scars and uneven skin tone,” say the 8 West experts. Plus, all you need is one. “Halo’s unique combination of non-ablative and ablative laser helps deliver optimal results with only a single treatment.”
