Tooth Discoloration

Your teeth can discolor by stains on the surface or by changes on the inside of the tooth. The outer layer or enamel can become stained with tobacco, wine, coffee, cola and other foods and drinks. The inner tooth structure can also darken or get a yellowish tint, occurring during tooth development or later in life.


Wrinkles are creases, folds or ridges in the skin. Most commonly, wrinkles appear as we get older. The first wrinkles to appear on our face tend to occur as a result of facial expressions. Sun damage, smoking, dehydration, some medications, as well as a number of other factors may also cause wrinkles to develop. Wrinkles are an inevitable part of the natural aging process. As we become older our skin gets thinner, drier and less elastic. Our skin’s ability to protect itself from damage is also reduced as we age. Eventually, wrinkles, creases and lines form on our skin. Apart from the factors mentioned above, a person’s genetic makeup also influences how wrinkly we become, and when and where wrinkles start appearing. The skin is made up of three layers, the epidermis – the outer layer, the dermis – the middle layer, the subcutaneous – the innermost layer. As we … Continued

Varicose Veins / Spider Veins

Spider Veins are small, red, purple, and blue vessels that twist and turn, and may look like a tree branch or spider web. They are very easily visible through the skin and are most often seen on the legs and face. Spider veins develop more often in women than in men and are seen more frequently with age. There are a number of factors that contribute to a person who may get spider veins. These include, heredity, obesity, hormonal, contraceptive pills, hormonal replacement drugs, history of blood clots, occupation (a person who is standing for hours), increased pressure in the abdomen area, trauma or injury to the skin, previous vein surgery and/or sun exposure.

Unwanted Tattoo

It is estimated that close to 25% of North Americans have some sort of tattoo. Eventually, 50% of them want to have it removed. This is not something we consider when we sit in the chair to get our tattoo. People have different, personal reasons for wanting to have their tattoo removed. A tattoo you chose as a young adult might not reflect who you are now. The good news is there are new and improved technologies used for tattoo removal. Lasers remove the tattoo by breaking up the pigment colors of the tattoo with a high-intensity light beam.

Sweating excessively or hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that involves overactive sweat glands. Sweating is the body’s way of regulating your body temperature. People with excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis significantly exceed the body’s normal requirements for cooling. The primary cause of hyperhidrosis is unknown but often runs in families and can begin at a young age. Excessive sweating affects more than a million people in Canada. In order to maintain a normal body temperature, people with this condition sweat up to four times more than normal.

Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are caused when there is a tearing of the dermis, due to rapid stretching of the skin. Stretch marks appear as linear streaks with an off-color hue. Seen as a form of scarring on the skin, stretch marks may diminish over time, but will never disappear completely. Rapid stretching of the skin is associated with rapid growth or rapid weight changes. Stretch marks may also be associated with hormonal changes of the body such as puberty, pregnancy, bodybuilding, hormone replacement therapy, etc. They tend to be present near the armpits, on the thighs, abdomen, chest, and groin areas. Bense SurgiSpa offers a variety of surgical and non surgical procedures to treat scars. With medical and technological advancement, correction is easier and readily available.

Skin Tone & Texture

Ideally, the skin should be soft with a smooth, even texture, but it’s not uncommon to have skin that feels rough and irregular. Skin tone can become uneven for a number of reasons. Some uneven skin tones may be from aging, acne, sun damage, smoking, dry skin, or the use of wrong skin care products. Uneven or rough skin texture feels unpleasant; it makes skin look dull and for women it can be hard to apply make-up smoothly. At Bense SurgiSpa, we offer many options to address your skin tone and texture concerns.

Skin Tightening

As we age our skin loses its elasticity, lacks firmness, appears saggy and droopy, and lines are a little deeper. We look tired and older than we feel. With advances in technology and depending on the area of concern, there are many non-invasive solutions to help tighten the skin on your face, neck and body.
