Calgary Guide to Anti-Aging
There’s still no perfect elixir to turn back time, but there is a vast array of highly effective products and procedures that can help reduce the appearance of aging through customized approaches
Tales of the Fountain of Youth have been told for thousands of years. Everyone from Alexander the Great and Ponce de León to Capt. Jack Sparrow has sought eternal youth by drinking from a mythical spring.
If only they’d lived a few centuries later, they could’ve popped down to their neighbourhood skin-care clinic for some Botox and laser treatments and saved themselves years at sea and all that sword fighting.
While there’s no single miracle treatment, modern products and procedures are highly effective in helping recapture that youthful look, and the range of options vary in type and intensity depending on your particular skin concerns and the type of results you expect.
“Taking care of your skin is like a marathon, and the aspects involved are moisturizer, sunscreen, exfoliating, healthy lifestyle and so on. Then there are the sprints, and those are the procedures,” explains Marie Bertrand, a microbiologist and owner of Skin Science skin-care clinic. While stressing the importance of a good daily skin-care regime, she acknowledges that topical products can only take you so far in combatting the appearance of aging.
