We are now open, but taking precautions during the pandemic.

Skin Tightening

Skin Tightening

Pellevé is an FDA approved, non-invasive technology that offers a safe and virtually painless way to soften and minimize wrinkles and to tighten and tone lax skin. The application of radio-frequency (RF) energy to the skin delivers thermal heat into the deep dermal layers, precisely where it’s needed to gradually heat collagen without damaging the skin’s outer surface. The selective heating of the deep dermis causes immediate collagen contraction and visible skin tightening. But there is more to come! The collagen not only contracts but it also remains stimulated to regenerate for many months to come. The results are cumulative and a series of 3-5 treatments will translate into progressive improvements in skin firmness and texture.

These are the commonly treated areas that can be chosen from, often in combination with one another:

• If possible, come in well hydrated before your procedure
• We will cleanse your skin and apply topical gel
• A hand held applicator is gently massaged over the treatment area, safely and delivering controlled and gradual heating without pain. Patients describe this as a deep warming sensation as energy is delivered.
• Witch hazel cleanse, application of SPF and customized topicals
• No down-time. No restriction with activity or sun exposure.

We know that your time is valuable to you. There are treatments we offer at Spring Skin that pair beautifully with our Pelleve skin tightening treatment. Combining treatments can help you save on time and often there are some cost savings that come with bundling treatments together. We also see more dramatic and faster regenerative results with these combination treatments.

  • Tight and Bright: This signature treatment combines the brightening and buffing benefits of our HydraFacial MD treatment with your skin tightening procedure. It exfoliates and uniformly hydrates your skin in order to improve the penetration and efficacy of your RF treatment – true synergy!
  • All about Eyes: This is the ultimate anti-aging lift for the eyes. It combines a gentle peel designed to hydrate, buff and brighten the eyelid skin with the skin tightening benefits of Pelleve to tighten skin, raise your brows and reduce fine lines around the eyes.
  • Injectables: Toxins and dermal HA fillers
  • Combination areas: combine face and neckline all in one session

This a no down-time procedure. You may have slight redness and a sensation of heat for a few hours but this dissipates quickly. This is an easy treatment to do over lunch and then return to normal day to day activities.

The results are very much cumulative and your best aesthetic results will be achieved over 4-6 treatment sessions spaced three to four weeks apart. This treatment works best for patients with mild to moderate skin wrinkling or laxity.

COVID-19 Procedures

We are Open!

We are opening our doors and we are looking forward to having you back to Spring Skin! Know that we have been working diligently behind the scenes to create and implement safety protocols that will safeguard you, our team and our community.

We are continuing to work closely with local authorities so that we can continue to offer our personalized service while keeping you and our team safe.

This is not business as usual but we will be working hard to accommodate all our patients in a timely fashion. As we transition our practice back, the clinic hours will be more restricted and all clinic visits will be by appointment only. We will be reaching out to all our patients that we need to reschedule. If you would like to schedule an appointment or have questions please contact us:

Email us: info@springskin.ca
or contact us by phone: 250-931-3110

For scheduled visits, we have implemented additional safety measures, over and above the standard universal precautions that are the norm in our practice. It is important that our clinic is a safe place for you and for our team. Key to this will be honouring social distancing where we can and we will schedule patients accordingly. For procedures where we cannot distance we will be utilizing standard OR protocol and PPE’s to reduce the risk of acquiring COVID through closer encounters. If you have any questions regarding these safety measures please do not hesitate to contact us.

In preparation for any patients, scheduled for a clinic appointment, we ask that you confirm the following information by phone PRIOR to coming to our office: 

  • Do you have any cold or flu-like symptoms, specifically fever, cough or shortness of breath? 
  • Have you come into contact with anyone who has these symptoms or who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or the flu? 
  • If yes to any of the above questions we ask you to defer your appointment with us at least 14 days. We appreciate your cooperation and will be happy to assist you with any rescheduling required.

Along with our usual universal precautions practices, we’re adopting the following hygiene precautions: 

  • You may enter the clinic by appointment only. Our office manager will call / text when it is appropriate for you to enter the clinic 
  • We would ask that you: 
  • do not bring in more personal items than is required 
  • do not bring in food / drink containers 
  • limit visitors to just yourself or one care-giver if required 
  • come with a protective mask; we will provide one for you if you dont have one 
  • Be on time for your appointment: our scheduling of patients is to optimize social distancing and patient safety – it is unlikely we will be able to accommodate early or late arrivals. 
  • Hand sanitizer is available at the reception desk. We will ask each patient to sanitize their hands upon arrival at the clinic. 
  • We have medical grade hand sanitizer through the office so please feel free to clean your hands. 
  • We will usher you into private treatment rooms upon your arrival to optimize social distancing. 
  • Our staff is trained and equipped with their PPE to ensure every one’s safety. 
  • We wash our hands between each individual patient and each procedure. 
  • All clinic surfaces, and equipment are disinfected before and after every patient visit 
  • You can expect that we do not have unwell staff at work in the practice, which has been a longstanding policy. 

We will continue to monitor the Ministry of Health guidance closely and maintain regular communication with you as we navigate through these challenging times together. Stay Smart, Stay Safe and we look forward to hearing from you soon!


Thank you,

Dr Deborah vanVliet
