Your best shape ever!

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.”

Q: How does the UltraShape technology work? DR. KELLETT:
The procedure uses a therapeutic transducer that is moved over the skin
to apply focused ultrasound to the skin.­ The transducer generates
mechanical effects to selectively break down fat cells and liquefy fat.­
The liquefied fat is gradually and safely cleared by the body’s natural

Posted on September 18th, by staff in Uncategorized. 5 comments

Going to sleep without cleansing your face is like not washing your hands after you eat. “People touch their face with their hands during the day, so it’s important to wash away bacteria,” says dermatologist Dr. Lisa Kellett of DLK on Avenue in Toronto.

While skipping one night likely won’t wreak havoc on your skin, daily cleansing is paramount for preventing clogged pores, especially for those who wear makeup or are prone to acne. 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.
