Fighting the visible signs of ageing is a lifelong pursuit for many of us. Ageing is simply a process where our cells and tissues do not regenerate as quickly or effectively as they once did when we were children. Although ageing is a fact of life and happens to all of us, we do however have some control over the rate and how well we age.
Wrinkles, fine lines, changes in pigmentation (age spots), loss of skin and muscle tone… we all associate these changes with ageing. Age related skin changes are the result of genetic changes (intrinsic factors) and lifestyle effects on the skin (extrinsic factors).
While both influence the skin’s appearance, structure and function, genetic ageing only accounts for 10-15% of cutaneous ageing. Extrinsic factors or external influences cause more pronounced changes and 85-90% of our skin’s ageing is a direct result of these avoidable factors.
Extrinsic ageing factors include:
At Point of Skin North Bay, we only offer healthy, safe, non-toxic and effective skincare products. We use Dr. Baumann, Beaucaire and SkinIdent bionome products that offer an effective holistic approach, to optimize the health of the skin, repair, reverse and certainly prevent visible skin damage from occurring.

Osmosis Holistic Medical Skin Care and Wellness products focus on reducing inflammation and rebalancing through our inside-out approach, resulting in permanent changes. This is achieved through a series of revolutionary ingredients and technologies delivered by our patent-pending liposomal delivery system, an area of high concentration.
Mesoporation is a treatment which uses rapid electrical impulses to create a field of tension, thus causing temporary hydrophilic (water) channels to be opened in the skin for a fraction of a second. The absorption capacity of the skin is increased by a hundredfold, therefore topically applied active ingredients can practically penetrate the skin cells entirely.
Highly effective skin identical, body identical and non-toxic active ingredients (hyaluronic acid, urea, natural fatty and amino acids, ceramides, liposomes, vitamins, etc.) are used to treat dry aging skin, rosacea, age spots and acne which results in:
Diamond microdermabrasion is a form of deep exfoliation which propels diamond microcrystals across the surface of the skin to remove dead skin cells and improve the texture and its smoothness, as well as promoting the production of fresh collagen and new cells.
From the age of 25 years old, our muscular system starts slackening. Muscles in the face are located directly below the skin. When the muscles loose substance, the face loses tightness and firmness, and the skin contours are less visible resulting in loose jowls, deep lines and furrows and a more aged appearance.
EMS delivers low frequency impulses to stimulate nerves below the skin which gently stimulates our muscles. This effective method makes the skin appear tight and lifted. In addition the flow of blood through the skin is stimulated, the lymph flow is stimulated and muscles in the face or body are tightened.

It combines LED light energy with impulse micro-currents to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, increase collagen and elastin fibers and trigger cell repair for a visibly firmer and youthful appearance.

Do you want to improve the look and shape of resistant areas that do not respond to traditional exercise and diets? Or maybe you have considered improving your appearance by tightening your skin, but are not interested in painful injections or risky surgery. The Venus Freeze™ is the perfect solution!
As seen on The Doctors, Extra TV, Hollywood Trend Report, Rachael Ray and the Real Housewives of Vancouver, Venus Freeze™ truly delivers the promise.
Venus Freeze™ is taking over Hollywood! Celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Oprah and Beyoncé have all been using the Venus Freeze™ treatments for different areas of their bodies such as the always visible neck and décolleté area or legs and stomach; the treatments have become part of their beauty regimen.
Venus Freeze™ combines multi-polar radio frequency (RF) with pulsed magnetic fields to remodel the skin by promoting the synthesis of collagen and elastin while also facilitating the production of FGF-2 (a growth hormone). Doing all of this promotes blood circulation and the creation of new, healthier skin that is more supple, smooth and toned.
