Treatment protocols can vary for each individual, succesful acne treatment is dependant on finding one that works for your skin. Talk to us to find a treatment that works best for you.
Acne appears when the skin’s pores become clogged with the build up sebum (an oily or waxy matter) and a high level of Propionibacterium Acnes (bacteria) causing blackheads or whiteheads to form within the pore. White blood cells then infiltrate the area and ensuing inflammation can lead to acneiform lesions called papules, nodules or cysts.
Successful treatment of acne relies on reducing the bacteria count of the bacteria and to reduce the excess sebum production from the sebaceous gland.
One of the treatment methods we employ with outstanding results is using elōs acne treatment, the first and only technology that uses combined energies (radio frequency and light energy) to effectively and gently provide relief from active acne by treating the problem at its source.
The combined bi-polar radio frequency and blue light energies of elōs technology penetrate the skin to precisely target and destroy active acne-causing bacteria, while also slowing excessive sebaceous oil production. Treatment helps in reducing active acne and speeds up healing time of existing acne.
Typically 6-8 elōs acne treatments are necessary to see excellent results.
This acne procedure is a low risk treatment with no down-time, and is a treatment protocol offering gradual and safe improvements for patients with active papular-papulopustular acne.
Fractional Laser sublative skin treatment using RF sublation to treat acne scars
Medical Grade Chemical Peels chemical peels designed to treat acne and acne scars
Hydrafacial to treat excessively oily skin
IPL Photofacial to treat acne spots and acne scars
Microdermabrasion to treat acne, blackheads, whiteheads and oily and congested skin

Revitalize your skin with our treatments
Age spots are one of the most common cosmetic problems which people throughout the world face. Contrary to popular belief, age spots are not a problem which is limited to the elderly. As a matter of fact, people even in their thirties or forties can experience age spots.
Even though age spots can affect people regardless of their race or skin types, there are certain factors which contribute to age spots
Age spots are generally flat and may be black, brown or even tan in color. These spots of high pigmentation often appear on areas of the body which are exposed most to the sun including the face, upper back, shoulders, and even the back of the hands. Age spots can be anywhere between a few millimeters to half an inch and are most prominent when they group together.
As mentioned above, anyone regardless of their race, sex, or age can develop age spots. However, it is seen that age spots or liver spots are more common in people who:
Age spots are caused due to increased production of melanin. The reason why frequent exposure to sunlight may cause age spots is because the production of melanin is accelerated by ultraviolet rays. This increased production of melanin then appears as age spots. Age spots are also seen in areas where there is a high concentration of melanin.
We offer our visitors and customers several different treatment options for age spots making it the best spa in Calgary. We offer safe laser therapy at our skin treatment clinic which can help destroy the cells in your body which produce melanin—that too without damaging the surface of your skin! Laser treatment of age spots will not only help revitalize your skin, but will also ensure that you are not troubled by age spots for a long time to come.
We also offer intense pulled light (IPL) treatment for our customers who are bothered by age spots. Much like laser treatment, intense pulled light treatment destroys the cells of the body which produce melanin to ensure that increased pigmentation does not cause age spots.
In addition to laser treatment and IPL treatment, our professionals can help deal with age spots with advanced facials done using natural products which are safe for the skin.

Say goodbye to eye wrinkles with our treatment options
Most people are not aware of the fact that wrinkles can affect people of every age. Experts even go as far as saying that wrinkles are only preventable for so long and they are essentially inevitable. While these ridges, folds or creases generally appear on the skin of people as they grow older, there are several other causes for eye wrinkles as well.
Want to learn more about eye wrinkles, their causes and the treatment options available in Calgary? Read on to find out everything you need to know about eye wrinkles and how they can be treated at Prestige Cosmetic Clinic and Aesthetic Organic Spa.
You might have noticed that older people have a lot more wrinkles than anyone else, however, most people do not know why this is the case. Eye wrinkles appear more commonly in people who are much older because of the decrease in the production of collagen in their bodies. This protein is produced abundantly in the body and is extremely important to maintain elasticity of the skin. As the years go by, the production of collagen in the body decreases which is why skin begins to sag. Consequently, age spots and other signs of aging including eye wrinkles start to appear on the body.
Age may be one factor, but it is certainly not the only cause of eye wrinkles. Eye wrinkles can also be caused by overexposure to sunlight without taking the right preventive measures and skipping the use of sunscreen.
Smoking also has the potential of contributing to eye wrinkles. Smoking regularly narrows the blood vessels in the outer layer of the skin which affects the flow of blood. As a result, vital nutrients and moisture do not reach your skin the way they should leaving your skin unhealthy and causing the signs of aging to appear more prominently.
At Prestige Cosmetic Clinic and Aesthetic Organic Spa, we offer our customers and visitors with three different types of treatment for eye wrinkles making it the best spa in Calgary.
Laser therapy is the first treatment option available at Prestige Cosmetic Clinic and Aesthetic Organic Spa. Short beams of light are used in this treatment option. These beams of light are concentrated and directed towards wrinkles to reduce their visibility. This does not only help remove eye wrinkles and leave the skin youthful, but can also help remove a number of other conditions like scars caused by acne and blemishes.
Botox and fillers are the second treatment option available for eye wrinkles at Prestige Cosmetic Clinic and Aesthetic Organic Spa. These fillers can not only help decrease the visibility of eye wrinkles, but they also leave your skin looking youthful and beautiful.
At Prestige Cosmetic Clinic, we also offer advanced facials using safe and natural products that can help your skin look bright and wrinkle free just like the good old days of your youth.

Browse through our treatment options for healthy and beautiful skin
Facial spots may come in all shapes and sizes, but one thing is certain: they are never welcome. Millions of people throughout the world are bothered by facial spots tarnishing their self esteem as they break out for various reasons. Facial spots are commonly caused when dead skin cells, dirt and bacteria deposits block the oil glands and hair follicles of the skin.
The role of genetics cannot be undermined when talking about facial spots and their causes. Facial spots are also extremely common during puberty and may even last until the end of one’s teenage years. Allergic reactions also contribute to facial spots caused by different types of pimples and are generally worse in people who are habitual of picking and touching their pimples.
1 Blackheads appear as dark brown or black spots on the surface of the skin. While most people believe that blackheads are caused by dust or dirt, blackheads get their color when the melanin in the skin is oxidized which means that scrubbing or trying to rub them off really won’t make a difference and might even worsen the problem.
2 Whiteheads appear as small bumps and can usually be seen on or around the nose and cheeks. Unlike most pimples, whiteheads are not formed on the surface of the skin but remain under it instead.
3 These types of pimples appear as pinkish-red rounded bumps on the surface of the skin.
4 Cysts are pus-filled pimples that are clearly visible on the surface of the skin and are known to be painful.
5 These pus-filled pimples have a red base and the pus is clearly visible on the tip of the pimple.
6 Nodules are a lot like pustules but can be much larger and more painful. Unlike their smaller counterparts, nodules are also more deep rooted.
Even though the types of pimples mentioned above differ from each other in a number of ways, nearly all of them cause facial spots. For this reason, we offer our valuable customers various different treatment options making Prestige Medispa the best spa in Calgary.
Here are some of the treatment options available at Prestige Medispa that can help remove facial spots and let you flaunt your beautiful, spot-free skin:
The first non-invasive treatment option available for facial spots is laser therapy. At Prestige Medispa, we use short pulses of lasers to treat the structure of the skin at the base level ensuring that the problem is treated from the root.
The second treatment option available at Prestige Medispa is intense pulled light or IPL treatment. This innovative technology has recently become extremely popular for its benefits. Intense pulled light treatment uses filters to block out certain dangerous wavelengths of light making it a safe option for any type of skin.
Our professionals also perform advanced facials using safe and natural products to remove spots and scars caused by pimples and other problems.

Get rid of patches caused by melasma with our effective treatment options
Melasma is an extremely common skin condition that affects countless people throughout the world. This condition causes dark spots and patches to appear on the skin. These patches are generally brown or grey and appear on the face more commonly than on any other part of the body.
If you or a loved one have suffer from this condition and are tired of covering the brown and grey patches on your skin with makeup then you’ve come to the right place. Read on to find out everything you need to know about melasma, the symptoms associated with it, the treatment options available at Prestige Cosmetic Clinic and Aesthetic Organic Spa and how the professionals at our skin treatment clinic in Calgary can help.
While the exact causes of melasma are unknown, it is expected that the condition occurs when melanocytes – the cells responsible for producing color in the skin – become hyperactive and start producing more color than they should. While the condition can affect nearly any type of person, it affects women aged between 20 and 50 and those with skin of color more than other people.
Even though the cause of melasma is unknown, it is triggered by certain factors. One of the most common triggers of melasma is sunlight. Excessive exposure to sunlight causes the melanocytes in the body to produce excessive amounts of color. This is one reason why melasma becomes more prominent during the summer.
Changes in hormones are also responsible for melasma. The condition is extremely common in women who are pregnant and could also be triggered by birth control pills and hormone replacement medication.
You could also experience melasma if you are allergic to certain skin care products or if your skin gets irritated easily when you use certain products. If you already suffer from the condition, it could get worse with certain personal care products.
At Prestige Cosmetic Clinic and Aesthetic Organic Spa, we offer our visitors and clients with three major types of effective treatment options for melasma making it the best spa in Calgary.
Laser therapy is the first treatment option available at Prestige Cosmetic Clinic and Aesthetic Organic Spa. Short beams of light are used in this treatment option. These beams of light are concentrated and directed towards the patches that appear on the skin to reduce their visibility. This does not only help make the patches less prominent and leave the kin youthful, but can also help with a number of other problems and conditions like scars and spots caused by acne and blemishes.
Intense pulled light is the second treatment option available at our clinic and is one of the most common melasma treatments in the world. Like laser therapy, beams of light are used in this type of treatment as well, however, the beams of light used in intense pulled light treatment are filtered to ensure that your skin does not come into contact with harmful wavelengths of light.
At Prestige Cosmetic Clinic, we also offer advanced facials using safe and natural products that can help your skin look bright and free of patches just like the good old days of your youth.

Make your skin healthy and youthful with our rosacea treatments
Rosacea is a very common skin condition that which makes blood vessels in the face become visible and also causes redness. People with the condition often blush more easily than others and this is often a sign seen among people in which the condition is in its initial stages. In some cases, there are also red bumps filled with pus in addition to the visible redness of the facial skin.
Redness caused by rosacea is often seen around the nose and cheeks, however, it is possible to spread to the chin and even to the forehead. The redness and bumps may increase and become more prominent for months at a time and then disappear altogether. For this reason, the condition is often mistaken as an allergic reaction, or even a bad case of acne.
The condition can occur in anyone. However, it is most commonly seen in women with a fair complexion. But this does not mean that rosacea cannot occur in anyone else. If the symptoms of the condition are not controlled or treated, the center of the faces of people suffering from the condition permanently becomes red.
The condition has four different types, each of which has its own signs and symptoms from irritated eyes to thickened skin. These subtypes are:
1 which causes flushing and redness and makes blood vessels of the face become visible
2 which causes swelling, redness and pimples or bumps like acne
3 in which the skin becomes bumpy and thick
4 in which the eyes are affected and the eyelids can swell.
Unfortunately, however, the condition does not have any real cure which is why people resort to different treatment options to control and reduce the redness and other symptoms of the condition.
At Prestige Cosmetic Clinic in Calgary, we have several different treatment options for rosacea which we offer our customers and visitors. We offer safe laser therapy at our skin treatment clinic which can help remove visible veins and vessels from the faces of those who are affected by the condition—that too, without damaging the surface of your skin! With laser treatment of rosacea, not only will the redness of your skin be controlled, but you will also have clear skin for a considerable amount of time.
We also offer intense pulled light (IPL) treatment for our customers who are bothered by the redness on their faces and visible vessels and veins. Much like laser treatment, intense pulled light treatment involves heating the chromophores and structures that are responsible for causing redness and visible veins on the face.
In addition to laser treatment and IPL treatment, our professionals can help deal with rosacea with advanced facials done using natural products which are safe for the skin.
