Popular Non-Surgical Procedures for Spring

Popular Non-Surgical Procedures for Spring
Want to look your best this spring? Now’s the ideal time to book your non-surgical procedures to ensure full healing and a rejuvenated look for when the warmer weather arrives.

Why Choose Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures

Non-surgical cosmetic procedures provide the patient with satisfying results without going under the knife. These procedures are a great way to introduce cosmetic treatments into your life without making a huge, irreversible commitment. There is a much lower chance of complications, barely any recovery time, and few side effects with non-surgical cosmetic procedures.

Procedures like Botox treatments or body sculpting using the latest technologies and gadgets can give you your dream body or make your face appear youthful and refreshed with minor risks and complications. The most common side effects you’ll experience with any non-surgical procedure include redness, bruising, or swelling – all of which subside shortly after your procedure. 

Popular Minimally Invasive Procedure Options For The Spring

To reverse signs of aging, tone your jawline, sculpt your figure, and restore your hair, the Skin Technique team recommends the following procedures. You will step into spring looking refreshed and youthful with Morpheus8, a double chin treatment, PRP, and/or EMSculpt!


If you are looking for a treatment that can reverse the signs of aging with no downtime, Morpheus8 is the treatment for you! Morpheus8 is a new and innovative industry-leading technology used to lift, tighten, contour, and smoothen soft tissue skin laxity and irregularity, boost radiance, refine pores, and improve skin texture on all areas of the face and body. 

The Morpheus8 device involves microneedling and radiofrequency to contour the face and penetrate the skin and fat for a smoother appearance. Collagen production is stimulated, and no downtime is required.

What is it?

Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive technology that combines microneedling at many customizable depths and radiofrequency to perforate the skin. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin– the building blocks of tight, smooth skin. In doing so, wrinkles, sagging skin, and facial lines are reduced, creating a more youthful appearance. Plus, the Morpheus8 device is the only FDA-approved device that can provide sub-adipose remodeling.

Morpheus8’s ability to be completely customized to the patient’s skin concerns allows us to successfully treat a wide range of skin concerns.

Why Should I Do it Now?

If you want tighter skin with reduced blemishes and increased collagen production, Morpheus8 is a perfect non-surgical procedure to pursue during the winter. The treatment targets deep layers of the skin to reduce wrinkles and even melt fat. 

You can get this procedure on your face, neck, arms, legs, stomach, and other areas to treat stretch marks, acne scarring, or signs of aging. There is minimal downtime, and the results are permanent, so pursuing the procedure now is a great idea to look your best for spring!

Double Chin Treatment

A combination of lifestyle, hormones, genetics, and age can contribute to the formation of stubborn fatty areas. The Skin Technique team can use a medical fat-dissolving substance during your double chin treatment to emulate the acid naturally created by the liver to aid in the digestion of fat. This treats submental fullness, eliminating the appearance of a double chin.

What is it?

The double chin treatment involves a medical fat-dissolving substance introduced into the body to metabolize and filter away fat. It helps eliminate unwanted pockets of fat and reduces the appearance of a double chin. 

Why Should I Do it Now?

The benefits of a Double Chin Treatment are often permanent, but the downtime is around one week, and it takes 6-8 weeks to see full results. Booking your appointment in the winter is best to enjoy complete healing and results in time for spring. 

PRP for Hair Restoration

PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma therapy, is a hair restoration treatment growing in popularity. This non-surgical treatment uses the patient’s blood to promote hair growth. PRP therapy is an effective and safe treatment for hair loss and is offered as one of the many procedures performed at the Skin Technique clinic in Downtown Vancouver.

What is it?

PRP for hair restoration uses innovative platelet-rich plasma (PRP) technology whereby a clients’ own blood is drawn to extract the PRP and then injected into the scalp where hair loss/thinning is present. Platelets are the components of our blood that contain multiple growth factors and nutrients. This procedure stimulates new growth of the hair.

Why Should I Do it Now?

For PRP recovery, you should consider that:

  • Normal activities can resume immediately.
  • You can wash your hair after 24 hours.
  • Soreness or bruising will reduce after 2-3 days.

Note that the treatment’s effects are most noticeable a few months after your final session. Early winter is an ideal time to receive this treatment, as you can see hair growth as the warm weather arrives and not worry about excessive sweating or wearing hats affecting your progress. 

After your final treatment session, these results will last for up to 1 year. Typically, patients will require a treatment once every 6-12 months to maintain the hair growth results. Expect gradual improvements over time with several treatments.


This transformational, non-surgical body contouring treatment has shown in multiple clinical studies the ability to affect both muscle and fat. The EMSculptNEO non-invasively delivers optimal energy in a short period of time and strengthens, firms, and tones the treatment area.

What Is It?

The EmSculpt device distributes a High-Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic (HIFEM®) field derived from MRI technology to stimulate the muscle in treatment areas while burning fat cells.

Why Should I Do it Now?

The fat cells are gone indefinitely, and the increase in muscle typically lasts 6 months or longer. The EmSculpt gives optimal results 2 to 4 weeks after the last session, with continued improvement for several weeks following the last treatment, so it is ideal to receive this treatment towards the end of winter and flaunt your results in the following months. 

Facial Slimming

Facial slimming is a popular and effective non-surgical treatment that has emerged in recent years to achieve a slimmer, more contoured jawline. Using anti-wrinkle injections, this treatment works by relaxing the jaw muscles and thinning out the lateral masseter muscles along the jawline.

What is it?

Facial slimming is a minimally invasive procedure that can help to create a narrower, more youthful appearance. Face slimming treatments can:

  • Reduce the appearance of jowls
  • Relax the jaw
  • Result in a more feminine jawline

Anti-wrinkle treatments are not a weight-loss solution and don’t affect any of the fat on the face. What anti-wrinkle treatments can do, however, is force the thick facial muscles that are layered underneath the fat to relax and create an altogether slimmer look for the face. This can be part of a very effective plan for a slimmer appearance combined with other treatments.

Why Should I do it now?

The results of facial slimming are not permanent, but how long they last will depend on your treatment plan and genetics. The masseter muscles will be unable to get as much exercise as they normally do for several weeks, and that will cause them to shrink to a leaner size. 

Once the anti-wrinkle injections have worn off, the muscles will remain leaner until they grow back to their normal size through exercise. Having the winter to heal means you can stay inside and be comfortable as you wait for your results to show. You will see results within 3-6 months following your treatment, so Fall or early Winter would be an ideal time to receive this treatment and flaunt your slimmed, fresh face in the summertime.
