Specializing in facial cosmetic surgery, we take pride in our ability to attain natural, balanced, and personalized results for our patients. Founded in 2010 by top rhinoplasty surgeon, Dr. Jamil Asaria, FACE Cosmetic Surgery has developed an influential and trusted reputation in Toronto and around the globe.
At FACE Toronto, our approach to all surgical and non-surgical procedures performed by Dr. Asaria, Dr. Alexander, and Nurse Ada Shim have one thing in common; skincare.
What is skincare, and why do we provide it?
Skincare is a preventative and preparatory measure that will improve the integrity of your skin through careful selection and consistent topical use. By nourishing and protecting your skin prior to any procedure, the skin's ability to heal and sustain results will be enhanced. This is the number one reason why we encourage our patients to consider implementing specific pharmaceutical-grade skincare tailored to optimize surgical results.
Our passionate team of medical professionals are confident in serving our patients a wide variety of skincare backed by years of extensive clinical research to directly target various skin concerns. Through the combination of skin treatments such as chemical peels and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial rejuvenation with skincare, we are able to target difficult-to-treat skin concerns that have accumulated over time.
The reality is, skincare exists to improve the longevity of our youthful complexion. If you are experiencing qualities of your skin that you dislike or would like to improve, combining various treatments with topical skincare is a great way to make that change. However, it doesn't have to be complicated.
Vivier Skin (one of our favoured skincare brands at FACE Toronto) operates on a simplistic approach to skincare by compartmentalizing your routine into four categories; prepare, target, moisturize, protect.
Preparing the skin includes cleansing, toning, and pre-conditioning the skin for your target products. Would you feel calm and productive in a dirty, disorganized workspace? Probably not. By cleaning and providing balance to the skin, you can be rest assured that your products working optimally without trapping any impurities.
Target is the second integral step of your skincare routine. Think of your skin concerns, and use target products to achieve improvement - it's that simple. Skin concerns such as hydration and dullness can be quite easy to treat through target products. However, if you're trying to target tricky skin concerns like hyperpigmentation or acne, reach out to us so we can assist you in making the right choice.
Moisturizer is a fundamental part of your skincare routine that you shouldn't leave out. Oily skin? You especially should be using a moisturizer. There are different formulations for different skin types, and what's wonderful is that they often provide further benefit to your skin - don't miss out!
Protecting your skin against harmful UV rays is an investment you should never ignore. UVA, UVB, and UVC rays are known culprits causing wrinkles, pigmentation, skin cancer, and the list goes on. This step indicates the application of sunscreen. If you would rather not invest in a cleanser or moisturizer, we would hope you take the time to select a sunscreen to keep your skin safe and youthful for the rest of your life.
I just invested in surgery, now you want me to invest in skincare?
Imagine your skin as the beautiful garden in your back yard. Your garden features a unique contour and aesthetic, boasting a variety of flowers and lush greenery, accompanied by mulch and decor to add refinement and completion. Gardens are customizable; you are able to add or take away from your garden until it is just right. But in order for your garden to thrive and continue flourishing, you need to feed your garden with water, sunlight, fertilizer, and nutrient-rich soil. Without these necessities to promote growth and livelihood, your plants may not survive.
The reality is, you need to look at your skin the exact same way. While some surgeries focus on the underlying structure of your face, majority of our procedures target the laxity of the skin. Laxity refers to the looseness or overall quality of the skin which is often impacted by aging, genetics, sun damage, and the diminished production of collagen and elastin in the skin.
It's inevitable - once you undergo your surgical journey at FACE Cosmetic Surgery, your skin will still continue to change over time. It is in your best interest to maintain your investment by using protective and preventative skincare to topically improve the laxity of your skin, stimulating collagen and elastin, and protecting the skin against the sun; taking care of the garden which is your skin.
Never be shy to ask.
