Dr. Marc DuPéré, Visage and AgeLess Clinics.

AgeLess Clinic, Becoming Age-Less
Science and art create a natural look at the AgeLess Clinic.

Modern cosmetic plastic surgery isn’t just nips and tucks. It takes the creative eye of an artisan to deliver that desired, untreated look. With over 20 years of experience, Joyce M. Palmer, owner and director of the AgeLess Clinic, explains that, “To achieve results that are really natural looking, the plastic surgeon has to be both technically and artistically skilled.”

Medical director of the AgeLess Clinic is Dr. Marc DuPéré, a board certified cosmetic plastic surgeon. He brings superb specialized skills and that creative talent to the AgeLess Clinic, which is essential for natural results. “He is considered an elite plastic surgeon,” says Palmer, noting that Dr. DuPéré’s accolades include graduating as a gold medalist from the McGill School of Medicine, certified by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and mentored by top European plastic surgeons.

The AgeLess Clinic is the only clinic in York Region to have five hospital-grade lasers to ensure the appropriate and safest technology.

All surgery is conducted in a fully accredited (CAAAF) private surgical facility. Surgical clients are given both Dr. DuPéré and Palmer’s cellphone numbers for round-the-clock post-surgery care.

Dr. DuPéré performs all wrinkle treatments and dermal filler procedures personally, and is often called upon to train other physicians because of his expertise.

“We’re very friendly and we’re very attentive,” says Palmer. Our main goal is getting optimal results for our patients, along with their personal comfort and safety. Nothing is done halfway here.”

Accolade Dental

Dr. Jack Slome of The Accolade Dental.

The Accolade Dental Centre, That Hollywood Smile
The impact of a great first impression is undisputable, and there’s no better lead-in than a striking smile. Veneers are a great solution for those who, like many celebrities, love to flash those picturesque pearly whites. But the traditional means of applying veneers is both time-consuming and uncomfortable. Thankfully, The Accolade Dental Centre’s equipment eliminates the stress, giving you plenty to grin about.

In the past, having veneers made wasn’t the most pleasant process. “A lot of people really dislike having an impression done,” explains Dr. Jack Slome. “It’s gooey, it makes them gag, it doesn’t taste too great – it’s just not a comfortable experience.” Patients would then need to wait a couple weeks before the veneer was finalized and ready to be cemented on. “The whole process was really a hassle,” Dr. Slome adds.

Using The Accolade Dental Centre’s advanced CEREC machine, veneers are created and applied effortlessly within a single session. A digital photo of the teeth is taken, it’s customized via a computer and the porcelain veneer is quickly milled in-house. “Patients love the convenience of it. This process if far more comfortable, it’s quicker and the quality is as good, if not better, than the traditional way.”

This streamlined process is brief, relaxed and leaves patients beaming. If you’re hungry for that coveted Hollywood smile, The Accolade Dental Centre will have you smiling from ear to ear. , 416-928-6828

Davis Orthodontics

Dr. Kevin Davis of Davis Orthodontics.

Davis Orthodontics, Smile with Confidence
A great smile affects others’ attitudes towards you and can also shape self-esteem. In the past, some adults shied away from orthodontic work, but braces aren’t just for kids anymore. In fact, teeth can be predictably moved at any age, and today’s esthetic orthodontic procedures can do so in subtle ways.

“Today, getting braces is less time-consuming, more comfortable and less visible,” says Dr. Kevin Davis of Davis Orthodontics.“Now you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.”

Davis Orthodontics offers inconspicuous yet effective options for straighter teeth. Clear choices, such as Invisalign and behind-the-teeth braces, are much less visible than traditional metal types, but provide the same results. “We treat a lot of patients with Invisalign” says Dr. Davis. “Everyone loves how unobtrusive they are, and the results are amazing.”

Technological advancements have also made orthodontics a more enjoyable experience. Patients at Davis Orthodontics only need to come in once every two months, and most require 5 –15 visits in total. SureSmile, a robotically engineered system of braces, can also decrease treatment times by 25 – 50 per cent.

If you’re uncomfortable with your teeth, visit Davis Orthodontics for a complimentary consultation and find out how you can help boost your health and your confidence.
