Medicare Cosmetics believes in offering state-of-the-art skin care treatments so that you can live confidently in youthful,
healthy looking skin.
Every treatment is administered in the highest standard by trained and certified professionals,
using only the highest-quality skin care products.
Why Wrinkles Form
Wrinkles develop over time due to a number of factors: collagen breakdown, hormonal losses, cellular changes, and muscle movement. Even those who follow strict skincare regimens and avoid sun exposure cannot avoid muscle contraction which can cause creases in the skin over time.
How Botox Treats Wrinkles
Botox provides an immediate solution to smoothing out lines and wrinkles. Botox relaxes facial muscles which are responsible for causing frown lines, forehead wrinkles and crows feet. Botox is sold by the unit as every client requires a different number of units based on the size of the muscle. Most clients do require a combination of Botox and dermal fillers for best results. Our doctor will determine the amount of units suitable for each patient's desired results during consultation.
At Medicare Cosmetics, we offer a variety of high quality injectable fillers which are administered in a professional, medically-supervised environment. Injectable fillers can plump thin lips, enhance contours, soften facial creases and wrinkles, and improve the appearance of scars and dark under-eye circles. By stimulating collagen production, results are instant and natural-looking, delivering a rested, refreshed look.
During consultation, patients can outline any specific concerns and needs they may
have and different filler products will be discussed that would be best suited.
A facial filler is a gel-like substance injected into the skin. Fillers are used most often to smooth away the lines around the nose and the mouth, to enhance lips and to restore lost fullness to the cheek and chin area. Hyaluronic acid is a normal component of the skin that holds water and causes a plumping effect. Filler Treatments take approximately 15-30 minutes and results are immediate with minimal recovery and little-to-no downtime.
It is recommended to discontinue non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, high doses of Vitamin E, and alcohol for a few days before your treatment to minimize bruising and swelling..
Treated areas may be slightly swollen and red following the procedure, but these effects typically disappear within a few hours. Treated areas might feel numb, swollen, firm, or sore for a few days and may appear bruised. It is recommended that the patient return two weeks after treatment for a follow-up appointment to ensure that the results are optimal.
When treating dark under-eye circles, there can be bruising and swelling following treatment that can last for a few days as a result of the tissue under the eyes being thin and more sensitive. These can be treated with the use of cold compresses and sleeping on 2 pillows for head elevation.
Results are immediate and often a single treatment session will achieve the desired improvement in the area of concern. Different products vary in duration and effect. All filler products used at Medicare Cosmetics have been clinically studied and hold an exceptional safety record. Temporary fillers last from 4-6 months up to 2-3 years. No filler is 100% permanent and body type will effect the longevity of results. Repeated injections are required to maintain the desired effect.
There are many kinds of fillers including Hyaluronic Acid, Calcium hydroxylapetite, and Collagen. At Medicare Cosmetics, we use Revanesse Dermal Fillers. Revanesse products utilize the latest cross-linking technology, producing high quality, safe and long lasting dermal fillers. The Revanesse line uses the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid (HA) available.
HA is a naturally occurring sugar found in the body. It is a key component of the skin’s ability to retain water and therefore stay moisturized. The absorption of water creates volume and elasticity. As the skin ages, the body’s ability to produce HA is reduced causing loss of volume and wrinkles to develop. - Michael Dalgaard, CEO of Cultus Medical Group Ltd.
SKIN CARE TREATMENTS
MICRODERMABRASION (DIAMOND PEEL) TREATMENT
Microdermabrasion Treatment or Diamond Peel uses an innovative device that enables the performance of laser cut, diamond resurfacing tips. The polishing action is combined with a vacuum to clear and smooth away dead skin and promote radiant-looking skin.
The treatment offers gentle effective skin peeling for all skin types and all parts of the body.
Microdermabrasion stimulates production of new skin cells, collagen and elastin. Results are visible even after the first treatment.
The treatment uses a diamond tipped device to remove the dead outer layer of the skin resulting in smoother skin. A single treatment takes 30 minutes and patients can immediately return to regular activity. A series of treatments is recommended for best results.
After a single treatment, your skin will feel smoother and have an overall fresh, youthful glow. Continued treatment will minimize the appearance of a variety of skin care concerns including sun-damaged skin, fine lines and wrinkles, acne and scars, large pores and blemishes.

The Fractional CO2 Laser is the latest laser innovation for skin rejuvenation. One of the top anti-aging technologies in the industry, the Fractional CO2 Laser has scientifically proven results in revealing fresh, younger-looking skin! The carbon dioxide (CO2) laser removes outer layers of damaged skin to reveal the softer and smoother underlying skin. Fractional CO2 laser targets fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, dark spots, acne scars, and skin texture with superior skin resurfacing and skin-tightening results.
The CO2 Fractional Laser treats:
How it works
The Fractional CO2 Laser improves your skin's appearance by affecting only a fraction of your skin with thousands of tiny microscopic laser heat channels.Since only a fraction of the skin’s surface is treated by the laser, the areas of untreated skin aid in rapid healing, delivering powerful results. The CO2 Fractional Laser can be used to treat all areas of the body including the face, neck, eyes, and hands. At Medicare Cosmetics, we offer 2 methods of treatment: Mild and Aggressive. Recovery time for mild treatment is 4-7 days. Recovery time for aggressive treatment is 7-14 days. We highly reccommend for patients to stay at home during recovery time. Patients will be provided with a CO2 laser package that gives detailed post-laser recovery guidance.
Photo Rejuvenation is a non-invasive procedure designed to improve a wide range of skin imperfections. The treatment is performed using technology called Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to safely and effectively remove signs of aging and sun damage. You will notice immediate rejuvenation of your skin without any downtime.
IPL is used to treat all areas of the body including on the hands, face, shoulders and/or arms. Targeted skin concerns include:
Age spots or sun spots
Mild skin texture issues
Redness or flushing
Sun-induced freckles on the hand, chest and face
Vascular birthmarks (telangiectasias)
The term photo aging refers to the process of premature aging caused by UVA and UVB sun damage. As ultraviolet lights from the sun penetrate the outermost layers of the skin, it damages the skin cells and causes the cells to produce too much pigment. The outcome is the formation of freckles and age spots. Repeated sun exposure without proper protection results in deeper lines and wrinkles, and higher risk of skin cancer.
IPL laser light repairs damaged skin by targeting the excess pigments in your skin and the red color of your blood vessels. Light energy converts to heat, breaking up the target cells while leaving the rest of your skin untouched. The old cells containing those unwanted pigments will travel to your skin’s surface and slough off, leaving behind fresh and clear skin.
Immediately following your session, your skin may appear slightly red. This response is normal and is part of the healing process. This should last less than a day. It is safe to use makeup to make this redness less visible.
Please note that depending on your particular condition and skin type, a series of three to six treatments may be needed to give you clear, long-lasting results.
To maintain the results of your photo rejuvenation treatments and help prevent further visible signs of aging, we recommend that you use a full spectrum sunblock every day.
If you find yourself spending hours in front of the mirror applying make-up in the morning, permanent make-up can be your biggest time saver. Permanent make-up, also known as micropigmentation, is done by cosmetic tattooing machine, which is pain free and will not cause bleeding. There are two methods of micropigmentation: feathering, and microblading.
Feathering is a technique used only on the eyebrow area to give a natural texture of fuller hair to the eyebrows.
Microblading blends the colour of the permanent makeup to your skin tone to give a natural look while adding definition to the lips or eyes. Microblading can also be used to improve the look of skin discolouration.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Body hair is embarrassing and temporary hair removal methods can be time consuming. Permanent laser hair removal is a quick and safe procedure. With the latest advanced technology, Medicare Cosmetics offers permanent laser hair removal treatment by impairing targeted hair growth with computer-guided pulse laser light directly to the hair follicles.
How does it work?
The hair follicle underneath the skin's surface absorbs the light beam from an IPL (Intense Pulse Light) laser, which generates heat and destroys the follicle. The skin's outer layer is protected from the heat by an automatic cooling system, reducing discomfort to a mild stinging sensation. Sensitive skin can be treated with a topical anesthetic cream post-treatment.
Normal activity can be resumed immediately after the treatment. Slight reddening around the follicles may occur. This is normal and temporary. Keep the skin protected with sunscreen and reduce your amount of sun exposure for the first week following treatment.
In the following weeks, remaining hair will complete its growth cycle and fall out. In some cases, several treatments may be required to extract all follicles.
LASER TATTOO REMOVAL
Medicare Cosmetics' q-switched laser emits a beam of light at a specific wavelength that is absorbed by colored pigments in the skin, including melanin and tattoo pigment. The laser selectively destroys pigment without damaging the surrounding tissue or outer layer of the skin.
All colours can be targeted with our tattoo removal system. The YAG (1064-535nm) Laser works best on darker colours such as black and blue. Lighter colours such as green and yellow can also be targeted effectively; however, more sessions may be required.
Cavitation is body sculpting with no anesthesia, no scars, no discomfort, no down-time and presents a risk-free alternative to liposuction. The result is instant loss of fat cells.
Cavitation is a natural phenomenon based on low frequency ultrasound. The energy in the form of heat and pressure wave is released. As the membranes of fat cells do not have the structural capacity to withstand the vibrations, the effect of cavitation easily breaks the fat cells, while sparing the vascular, nervous and muscular tissue. The result is instant fat loss.
The cavitation treatment yields immediate and long-lasting results. Most of the clients experience 2 to 10 cm of circumference reduction after a single session with increasing results after each visit. The results may vary with different tissue structure, treatment area, age, metabolism, medications, and changes in hormones. Proper diet and increased physical activity will certainly improve and help to maintain the results.
Multi Polar Rf is a non-surgical method against cellulite and localized fat. Using an advanced RF technology which functions by combining bipolar frequencies and vacuum, it removes fat and activates the fibroblasts to produce new collagen and elastin that fully regenerates your skin's structure. The vacuum improves lymphatic flow and blood flow, thus resulting in the detox of your body and in weight loss. With Multi Polar RF, you can have long term skin firming results and sculpted body contouring.
