We asked Toronto dermatologist Dr. Lisa Kellett, MD, FRCP (C), DABD, to
give us the skinny on the UltraShape body contouring treatment. Dr.
Kellett was the first in North America to offer UltraShape, a non-surgical body contouring treatment that effectively and safely reduces unsightly fat deposits in men and women.
SAYS DR. KELLETT “A recent survey of Canadian
women aged 25 to 60 reveals that more than 90 per cent say there is
something about their body they would change. Also, 79 per cent of women
admit that they are their own worst critic when it comes to their body
shape. It is rewarding to help my patients obtain the body shapes they
aspire to have.”

Training and competing make your body look great, but it can tax your skin. Need some tips on how to get a glowing complexion? Here’s all you need to know.

Since not all cleansers are easily tolerated, Kellett recommends an exfoliating cleanser with a non-foaming base. “It won’t be too drying or irritating,” she says. So take those extra few minutes before bed, and wash away your day.
