Elta MD Suncreens
The EltaMD sunscreen products provide safe, broad-spectrum UV protection. A good quality sunscreen helps prevent sunburns and if used correctly with other sun protection methods, should reduce the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun’s UV rays. Ultraviolet rays are invisible energy that radiate directly from the sun. UV-A (aging) rays account for 95% of our sun exposure. Most of the sun exposure we receive is during our youth, before 20 years of age. These UV-A rays lead to skin cancer as we get older. UV-A rays penetrate more deeply into the skin layers compared to UV-B and cause a number of issues including loss of collagen, wrinkles, textural changes and much more. UV-B (burning) rays mostly affect the outer layer of the skin. These are the rays that you can get from a tanning salon. These rays cause sunburns and tanning that also greatly increase the risk of skin cancer over time. Your risk for skin cancer approximately doubles in those sun worshipers who have had more than five sunburns. The Skin Cancer Foundation (Nov. 2010)
When using EltaMD sunscreens, the UV-A and UV-B rays are not absorbed, but instead reflect and scatter away from your skin. This gives you much more protection than normal from the sun to prevent a sunburn.
Latisse to grow long, thick, natural eyelashes
Latisse allows your eyelashes to become thicker and fuller without false eyelash extension. By encouraging eyelashes to grow for a longer time before falling out, Latisse treatment gives you noticeable results.
The Latisse solution, made of bimatoprost ophthalmic solution at 0.03 percent, is the only FDA-approved treatment to help you grow thicker, natural eyelashes. Results can typically be seen after eight weeks. Fullest results occur between 12 and 16 weeks.
Not enough lashes? Ask Dr. Crippen if Latisse is right for you.
It’s a once-per-day application treatment that works gradually and effectively. You apply the solution with a brush to the base of your upper eyelashes, as instructed by your doctor. Then, results start to show in as little as 8 weeks, with full results in 16 weeks. Latisse is now available in Kelowna!

Our rejuvenating peels are perfect for any conditions where you want to bring fresh young skin cells to the front, especially when the current surface cells are damaged or discolored. This simple procedure can be completed in little more than half-an-hour, and there’s usually no downtime involved at all so you can return to your normal activities right away. It’s a light procedure that can be effective at stimulating the growth of new collagen.
Lasers are part of a complete revolution in beauty and healthcare over the past ten years, and DermMedica’s own Dr. Crippen has been in front of it the whole time.

Our laser procedures are non-invasive and have short recovery times.
Fillers and Injections
When improving the look of skin, sometimes more is needed than changing the color. We use fillers by injection to treat many common problems including wrinkles and volume issues. Botox and Juvederm are the fillers we most commonly use at the clinic, and we use them all over the face and body. Applications include treatment for thin lips, hyperhidrosis, and many other conditions.
Skin Care Starts at Home
Make Sure to Protect
You don’t even necessarily need products to have healthy skin. As long as you follow the right advice, you may be able to enjoy a youthful look into old age. Here are some of the things you should always remember for a healthy look:
Prepare for the Sun: Sun exposure is very likely the largest contributor to problems, especially in the tender areas around the lips and eyes. It’s implicated in everything from rosacea to cancer, and any discoloration may be the result of sun damage. Protecting yourself from the sun begins with wearing the right protection. You should always be using the proper sunscreen for the weather, and staying out of direct sunlight when possible.
Watch for the Signs: Your skin is good at telling you what it needs. You should always pay close attention to the state of it and how it’s reacting to the different products you use. If you notice it’s reddened, or itchy or dry, it could be a sign of a problem that needs to be addressed.
Address Problems Immediately: If you want to really care for your body, you need to make sure that you’re having problems addressed as soon as they show up. Some conditions are far easier to treat when they’re in the early stages.

It took a little longer than I would have liked for the results to kick in, but I didn’t change anything and I lost weight." – Ami Hamann
