Why ZO Retinol?

High-Energy Visible (HEV) Light Protection
HEV Light from Smart Phones May be Ruining Your Complexion. Exposure to HEV light impairs the skin’s natural barrier function. It doesn’t cause burning or redness. Instead, it goes deeper than the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) light, striking our collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid supplies. These are the very substances that give our skin the elastic and supple properties most associated with youth. HEV also zeros in on the pigment that gives skin, hair, and eyes their color (melanin), which likely plays a role in pigment issues that can occur with over exposure. All of our ZO Skin Health sunscreens protect your skin from these harmful rays.

Scar Removal & Scar Prevention
Scars are the end point of the normal healing process after skin tissue has been broken. Injury to any tissue, whether it is by accident, surgery or disease initiates a complex series of responses to help clear damaged cells, protect viable tissues and rebuild the damaged area. The ideal end point of the wound healing process would be total regeneration, with the new skin tissue having the same structural, aesthetic, and functional attributes as the original uninjured skin. However, this is not always the case in wound healing.
Cytoderma Scar Prevention
First-line therapy for post-procedure care and scar management
CytoDerma is a topical, medical grade silicone gel that is transparent, odourless and fast-drying. It helps maintain the skin’s moisture balance while supporting the care of damaged skin surfaces.
The Updated International Clinical Recommendations on Scar Management advocates the use of silicone gel as first line therapy for the prevention and treatment of abnormal scars such as keloids and hypertrophic scars.
CytoDerma is used for the prevention and treatment of abnormal scarring such as those that may result from cosmetic and surgical procedures.
CytoDerma is suitable for all skin types, complexion and colour.
It is safe to use during pregnancy and while breastfeeding as well as on infants, children and people with sensitive skin.
It is estimated that North Americans currently have about 840 million scars of which 169 million are raised, red or keloid, with approximately 62 million new scars developing each year. These scars are often considered trivial but in many cases can be aesthetically unpleasant and cause severe itching, tenderness, pain, anxiety and depression.

What is LATISSE®?
LATISSE® is the first prescription lash extension treatment approved by the FDA for the treatment of small, short or thin eyelashes. When applied regularly, LATISSE® can result in the growth of significantly longer; fuller, darker upper eyelid lashes. The mechanism of the product’s active ingredient in LATISSE®, called bimatoprost, is not known precisely, but researchers believe the lash extension results are due to an increase of the percentage of lash development during the lash growth phase. About 90% of LATISSE® lash extension users report seeing a significant increase in the growth and fullness of their own eye lashes.
How is LATISSE® applied?
LATISSE® is a prescription product which you apply yourself at home, it is only available through a physician’s office. Prior to applying the product, you should wash your face and remove any makeup or creams. Contacts should also be removed. The product is then applied with a thin, single-use brush to the top of the eye lid along the lash line, at least 15 minutes prior to bed to give ample time for the LATISSE® to dry. LATISSE® is meant to be applied to the lid, not the eye itself.
When will I begin to see results from LATISSE®?
LATISSE® works gradually with initial results appearing in 4 to 8 weeks, after continued daily use. Full lash extension effects become evident at 16 weeks after the initial application. LATISSE® must be applied every day during the initial 16 weeks to see complete and optimal lash growth and lash extension effects; however, after this period many patients begin a maintenance phase applying LATISSE® 3-4 times per week to maintain lash extension results.
How long do results with LATISSE® last?
The lashes which grow as a result of the LATISSE® lash extension program will last for the natural duration period of the eyelash growth cycle, usually 1 to 2 months. However the effects of LATISSE® lash extensions will continue on indefinitely if the product is continued to be applied a minimum of 3-4 days per week after the initial 16 weeks.

SIGVARIS COMPRESSION STOCKINGS
SkinRhümMD offers a vast assortment of Sigvaris medical grade compression stockings which are designed to fit your lifestyle, ensuring correct fit and accurate compression, resulting in optimal therapeutic benefits and greater wearing comfort. These compression stockings will help improve your circulation, reduce the aching and soreness in your legs, increase your energy and help to keep your legs healthy. Sigvaris medical compression stockings are best suited for those with chronic venous disorders, varicose veins, spider veins, edema/swelling in the feet, ankles and legs, patients whose job requires long hours standing or sitting as well as for post Sclerotherapy treatments with Dr. Patenaude.
Venous insufficiency is caused by a series of disorders in the vein, including when the valves of the veins fail to function properly. This interferes with venous return and causes blood to pool in the veins. Venous insufficiency can become more chronic and lead to spider veins, varicose veins, blood clots and changes in the skin, including leg ulcers.
Risk Factors for Venous Disorders:
- Age over 40
- Prolonged sitting or standing
- Long distance travel
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Surgery or trauma
Symptoms of Venous Disorders:
- Heavy, tired, aching legs
- Spider Veins
- Varicose Veins
- Swollen ankles/feet
Wearing graduated compression stockings or compression socks daily will help with the management and will reduce the progression of venous disorders. How does it work; the contraction and relaxation of the calf muscles around the veins aid in moving blood towards the heart. The external graduated compression stockings act as a layer of muscle by gently squeezing the stretched vein walls together, allowing the valves to close. The cavity of the vein is reduced thereby restoring blood flow to a normal state and aiding overall circulation. To be most effective, the compression stockings or socks should be put on at the start of your day and removed before you go to bed.
compression stocking actionIt is estimated that 20-25 million North Americans have varicose veins. A recent study showed that 33% of women and 17% of men have venous problems. Venous circulation problems can progressively worsen over time and can affect your health and quality of life. Wearing graduated compression stockings or compression socks daily will help with the management and will reduce the progression of venous disorders.
Our staff has been certified to measure and custom fit patients for compression stockings. Sigvaris medical grade compression stockings are often covered by various insurance providers. Contact your insurance provider for more information on your compression stocking coverage.
