HIT REFRESH

OUR BEST SCIENCE. YO U R B EST E YES .


T

he world has experienced profound changes over the past 18 months and many of us are yearning for all the perks of pre-pandemic freedom—international travel, visiting with long distance friends or relatives, and attending events without worry. For many, Fall represents a refresh, a restart, a re-emergence—a recommitment to looking and feeling fantastic. That’s what this issue is all about. We’ve curated advice and inspiration for putting your best self forward this fall—from Barry’s Bootcamp chief instructor Chris Lewarne on how to kick up your exercise routine, to TV host Nicole Servinis with style pointers on bringing your wardrobe back to life (page 16). I’ve shared a few tips of my own in my Doctor’s Note, including five good habits I’ve adopted to look and feel my best (page 26). Fall is also the ideal time to restore and repair our skin after all that fun in the summer sun. We introduce our newest med-spa treatment, Halo—the world’s first hybrid fractional laser which offers incredible results with less recovery time (page 11). Plus, we take a deep dive into the ultimate skincare products that will reverse sun damage and amplify hydration as the weather begins to cool (page 14). Beyond enhancing our appearance and physical strength, mental health is of equal importance. I am delighted to introduce you to our cover star Sandi Treliving, a philanthropist and advocate working to close the gender gap in mental health through womenmind at CAMH (page 20). COVID-19 has been especially hard on women, and Sandi’s mission is not only inspiring but so relevant during these times. My hope of course is that the worst of the pandemic is over and that all our efforts will soon shine a light on brighter times. Here’s to re-emerging better than before.

hello

HALO!

A NEW LASER TREATMENT IS REVOLUTIONIZING RESURFACING BY OFFERING RADIANT RESULTS WITH MINOR DOWNTIME

W

ho doesn’t long for the dewy glow of youth— smooth skin with a texture soft as a baby’s bottom and free of the wrinkles, discolouration, sun damage, uneven skin tone and scars that one can’t help gain from, well, just living?

“It’s the only laser on the market that uses a combination of ablative and non-ablative lasers to generate heat in the deeper layers of the skin,” explains Yolanda Balatbat, TMB’s Registered Nurse and skincare consultant. “This promotes collagen production, which causes the skin to tighten and helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The end result is deep dermal revitalization llore and skin renewal.” con qu Yesterday’s lasers just can’t do what Halo can. ccus raHere are 8 reasons why it’s so unique. >> atem ea uga.

Now there’s a new way to get your glow on. Halo is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser, a state-of-the-art, noninvasive resurfacing method that’s taken the aesthetic treatment world by storm. It smoothes fine lines, treats pigmentation from sun damage, reduces pore size, tightens the skin and increases collagen production.


MODERNBEAUTY MAGAZINE

1. FAST RESULTS You’ll see initial results in as little as two days. Most clients see dramatic improvement in the first two to three weeks. 2. LESS RECOVERY TIME For the first 24 hours you’ll need to keep your skin protected but after that you can wear makeup. It won’t take more than three to five days for your face to fully heal, during which time your skin will bronze and then peel to reveal fresh layers of skin.

“WHAT CLIENTS HAVE NOTICED MOST IS THE LIFTING AND TIGHTENING EFFECT OF THE TREATMENT, AND OF COURSE, THEIR GLOWING SKIN.”

3. DRAMATIC RESULTS Thanks to its dual-wavelength technology, the treatment can resurface about 25-30 percent of the skin. And unlike other types of laser therapy, results begin to appear after just one treatment. 4. MORE COMFORTABLE A topical anesthetic is applied to reduce sensation about an hour before treatment. The Halo handpiece device rolls over the face one section at a time and, while there may be some minimal discomfort, it’s far less harsh than typical laser treatments. The entire treatment takes about two hours.

5. SUITABLE FOR ALL SKIN TYPES Many traditional laser treatments are only effective on those with lighter pigment skin complexions. Halo works on all skin tones, including darker skin. 6. IT’S CUSTOMIZABLE You can have one or two deeper treatments or have multiple lighter treatments to BEFORE / AFTER | 1 month post 1 tx | courtesy of Kian Karimi, MD, FACS achieve a similar goal over a longer period of time. “If you just want a glow and mini™ ™ mal downtime, we can customize the treat- BBL: Pass 1: 515 nm filter, 8 J/cm , 30 ms, 15˚ Cooling Pass 2: 515 nm filter, 9 J/cm , 30 ms, 15˚ Cooling ment accordingly,” says Balatbat. “If you Pass 3: 515 nm filter, 9 J/cm , 25 ms, 15˚ Cooling are able to take a few days of downtime, Halo: 1470 nm: 400 μm coagulation, 25%; 2940 nm: 30 μm ablation, 30% we can do a more intensive treatment.”

7. FEWER TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED Typically a traditional peel or fractional laser treatment requires three to four sessions to achieve the results of a single Halo procedure, making it both time and cost effective. 8. RESULTS ARE LONG LASTING Your complexion will continue to regenerate over time, unveiling new layers of radiant skin. “Patients are very happy with their long term results,” Yolanda tells us. “What clients have noticed most is the lifting and tightening effect of the treatment, and of course, their glowing skin.” // 12

FRESHEN UP FOR FALL

NOW IS THE TIME TO REPAIR AND REJUVENATE SUMMER SUN-KISSED SKIN

A

s glorious as the summer sun can feel on our face, nothing ages us faster than ongoing exposure to its harmful rays. That's because UVA and UVB ultimately cause dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots and rough skin texture. If you did your fair share of sun worshipping these past few months, don’t despair. Now that fall is upon us it’s time for some damage control. Thankfully, Skinmedica

(a skincare product line from Allergan— the makers of Botox and Juvederm) has everything you need to slough off summer sun damage and rediscover healthy, glowing skin this fall. Trusted by leading dermatologists and skin-care obsessives alike, Skinmedica products are formulated using only the highest quality medical grade ingredients, and are backed by extensive scientific research to deliver real results you can see and feel. 14

To help you transition your skincare routine from summer to fall, we’ve put together a shortlist of must-have Skinmedica products that address your most major concerns: dark spots, fine lines and parched, dry skin. This triple threat trio works from the inside out, using a high concentration of stable growth factors, antioxidants and hyaluronic acids (HA) to repair damaged skin and maintain firmness and elasticity. >>

HA5 REJUVENATING HYDRATOR is an investment moisturizer that effectively hydrates even extra-dry winter skin with no greasy residue. It blends vitamins, antioxidants, peptides and five different types of HA to penetrate parched skin and provide continuous hydration for up to eight hours, while instantly smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Think of it as a big gulp of water for your skin.

LYTERA 2.0 PIGMENT CORRECTING SERUM addresses age spots, hyperpigmentation, redness, uneven skin tone and melasma, a condition characterized by dark spots. Unlike other skin creams designed to correct uneven tone, Lytera 2.0 is retinol-free and doesn’t contain hydroquinone, which means it won’t dry out your skin and you can use it daily. It contains 40 powerful ingredients from exotic grape flower cell extract to tranexamic and phytic acid to correct hyperpigmentation and enhance skin texture. Gwyneth Paltrow’s go-to celebrity facialist, Vanessa Hernandez, has named it a favourite solution for her acne scars.

NEED TO KNOW: HA is a water-loving substance so be sure to wet your fingertips before gently applying twice daily (morning and night) to face, neck and chest after cleansing and toning.

NEED TO KNOW: Can be used to optimize results of laser therapy, chemical peels microdermabrasion and prescription skin care products.

TNS RECOVERY ESSENTIAL SERUM boasts the highest percentage of human growth factors available on the market. These are natural chemical proteins that trigger collagen and elastin production and result in rejuvenation in the deeper layers of the skin. They are especially effective in those with mature skin. New York power publicist Peggy Siegal swears by it. “You pump two squirts on your hands, and rub it together. Morning and night. I’m religious about it,” she wrote in a piece called How to Look Like Me at 70. NEED TO KNOW: A dozen clinical studies, more than any other topical cosmetic growth factor product on the market, have shown that initial results can be seen in the first 30 days with full results in 90 days.

You can’t go back in time but you can look forward with confidence thanks to these products. The science is complex, but the results are simple: smoother skin with a healthy glow. //

A Post-Covid

RESET WITH THE WORST OF THE PANDEMIC BEHIND US, IT’S TIME TO LOOK AHEAD...

H

Antonio Guillem/Shutterstock.com

ands up if you’re ready to get back to doing your favorite things and being your best selves again!

We could all use a little something to look forward to, so we rounded up a few industry experts to help kick us back into gear and let us know what fitness, fashion, travel, and beauty trends are on the horizon.

FOCUS ON FITNESS After a year without regular gym visits, how do we get back on track? Barry’s Bootcamp Chief Instructor Chris Lewarne (aka “The Cuddly Canadian”) knows exactly what we need to go from beer bellies to bada$$. THE CHALLENGE: “I think everyone’s biggest challenge coming out of the last year is motivation,” Chris explains, “A body in motion stays in motion, but it’s hard to give ourselves the push to get off the couch and get moving when we don’t have that trainer screaming through a microphone in our ear. We’ve also been sitting idle and making bad decisions for too long. Now it’s time to pay the piper and work those beer bellies off!”

STRENGTH: “Grab a pair of weights (or a couple of phone books, wine bottles, etc.) and start by placing them on your shoulders for a 30-second squat. Then proceed to a 30-second shoulder press, then put ‘em all together for a squat-to-press thruster! Repeat three times.”

HIIT: “20 seconds of high knees as fast as you can go to spike the heart rate, then 20 seconds total recovery, then one more time for posterity!”

CARDIO: “Tabata (a method where you do 20 seconds of work, 10 seconds active recovery). Do 20 seconds of split squat jumps, 10 seconds of low plank holds. Repeat three times.”

ARNE CHRIS LEW

THE SOLUTION: After a year of at-home workouts mainly designed to “get us through,” people are ready to up their game and get results fast. “What you need is a combination of strength training, cardio, and High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT),” Chris tells us. Here’s a quick circuit you can do at home or at the gym that will challenge you on all levels:

THE FUTURE: Group fitness is back, baby! Anyone who’s experienced Barry’s RedRoom will tell you there’s nothing quite like it, especially with group workouts. “We’ve worked hard to curate the best, most effective routines and the best playlists, and when you put that in such a cool setting, it’s magic. The lighting, the sound system, the atmosphere—even just the benefit of working out with mirrors all around you (so you can adjust and correct your form), these are all things to get excited about, as we put Covid in the rearview mirror.”


MODERNBEAUTY MAGAZINE

NICOLE

SERVINIS

With restaurants open and big gala events back on the calendar, it’s time to say goodbye to our lockdown looks and finally dress up again! Television Host and red carpet sensation Nicole Servinis tells us how to bring our wardrobes back to life. THE CHALLENGE: “The struggle to get out of sweats is real!” Nicole explains. “The morning routine of “getting dressed” is also a bit unfamiliar after so many months of lockdown. I think people are feeling anxious with the process. We all have to make time in our day to properly “get ready” again. That, and we need to find inspiration in our fashion, which starts with making plans that inspire us, like a fabulous restaurant reservation or an RSVP to a hot ticket gala.” THE SOLUTION: Now is the time to invest in fearless fashion that tells the world, “Goodbye lockdown, hello LIFE!” Stepping out of the athleisure wear and into a good pair of heels is a starting place: “Heels always make me feel empowered and can instantly elevate any look,” Nicole tells us. “For example, I love pairing my favorite pair of jeans (Canadian brand Outland Denim is a go-to, pictured left) with a killer high heeled boot.” (pictured above right, Christian Louboutin) “I’m also excited to step out in a bright fiery red. It’s such a bold color and feels so right for a “post-Covid reset.” I’ve got a great cayenne red coat by Soia & Kyo (pictured above) that I’m eager to wear—it’s a versatile piece that really makes a statement.” Finally, polished tailoring is always a good idea. “I’m loving all the cinched and belted blazers that were on the Prada, Marni, and Tibi runways,” Nicole tells us.

“A little nip in the waist is flattering on any figure and is a welcome change from all the loose, shapeless clothing we wore during lockdown.” THE FUTURE: Get ready for gala season and over the top, luxurious, creative, and stunning red carpet wear. “I’m especially looking forward to The Canadian Arts and Fashion Awards (CAFA). Everyone dons dazzling ensembles—it’s always a magical event and experience. In the past, I’ve had the pleasure of wearing pieces by some of Canada’s most talented designers, including Hendrixroe, Narces, Stephen Caras, and Steven Lejame. I can’t wait to see what the designers come up with, and I can promise: I will be going ALL OUT when it comes to my look this year!”

THE CHALLENGE: “It’s no surprise that the hospitality and travel industries have suffered a tremendous loss due to the pandemic,” Gaurav explains. “Hotels have had to redefine their standards of cleanliness and hygiene and rethink the optimal guest experience in light of Covid-19. Guests need an extra level of reassurance to feel comfortable and safe. Travelers will really need to do their research when booking travel now and ask, “Can this airline/hotel legitimately keep me safe, comfortable, and happy?” THE SOLUTION: “The Hazelton Hotel has adapted quickly and adopted meticulous new protocols to ensure our hotel is a safe home away from home for our international and domestic visitors. We are also delighted to share that The Hazelton Hotel was one of the first 29 hotels globally and the only hotel in Canada to be Sharecare #HealthSecurity Verified® with Forbes Travel Guide. This standard of exactness and excellence is what travelers should look for and demand in the new post-pandemic reality.” THE FUTURE: “When borders fully open up again, and people start to feel safe to travel internationally, I believe there will be a huge surge in the international travel industry. For now, here at The Hazelton, we continue to welcome a lot of guests who are enjoying staycations and celebrating special occasions like anniversaries and birthdays.” cont. >>

TRAVEL TRENDS Covid-19 put our collective wanderlust on hold for a year and a half. Many of us can’t even remember what non-essential travel looks like. General Manager of the world-renowned 5 star Hazelton Hotel Gaurav Dutta tells us what to look for and what to expect if traveling in 2021.

“With the mask mandate in place, patients were mainly concerned with their forehead and eye area,” Dr. Born elaborates. “Now, it’s all about the mouth area, lips, and chin.

WOMEN’S work SANDI TRELIVING is building an army of mental health changemakers, with women leading the charge...

M

odernBeauty: Sandi, we’ve known you throughout the years as a philanthropist and advocate for women’s health and fitness, Canadian arts and culture—but mental health seems to have become your priority. Sandi Treliving: I always knew that I was going to do something in the mental health world. My brother, who is ten years older than me, has schizophrenia. His condition impacted my whole family—but at that time, we didn’t have the support we needed to properly deal with any of it. I avoided the cause of mental health for a long time because of this—it was just too

painful and seemed rather hopeless. Getting involved at CAMH (The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health) changed all of that. Once I started volunteering, I saw people with schizophrenia leading productive lives, finding fulfilling work, and being able to have great relationships with their families—things that weren’t available to my brother or my family all those years ago. CAMH helped me find hope in the cause, and my work there has been very healing on a personal level. All of the innovation and discovery happening there is so exciting—I’m committed to being a part of it, 21

and now as a Founding Member of womenmind™, helping Canada become a global leader in the field of women’s mental wellness. What is “mental wellness” in your view, and how do you prioritize your own mental well-being? All brains are different, so I think mental wellness and how it’s maintained is a little different for everyone. In my case, exercise hugely contributes to my mental health. Also, meditation, sleep, and quality time with my family all help to keep me grounded. For others, it may be medication, or therapy, or a combination of both. >> photo by Mark Binks


MODERNBEAUTY MAGAZINE

“THE WORLD WILL BE ADDRESSING THE MENTAL HEALTH IMPLICATIONS OF THE PANDEMIC FOR YEARS TO COME, AND WOMEN NEED TO BE LEADING THAT RESPONSE.”

What I do know is that true wellness cannot exist without a mental health component. We have normalized getting regular checkups to monitor most of our major organs—heart, lungs, skin—but we seem to forget the brain is an organ too. One in five Canadians will suffer from a mental illness at some point in their lives, so we need to normalize mental health checkups for a start. Tell us about womenmind. The more time I spent at CAMH— first as a volunteer and then as a Director of the Foundation Board— the more I came to understand the unique challenges patients face in the mental health world, particularly women. You only have to look at the example of postpartum depression to know how little women have been studied and how much we don’t know about them. We should be able to figure out postpartum depression. It’s not new, and approximately 13% of women suffer from it worldwide. That’s a considerable number. Deborah Gillis, the CEO and president of the CAMH Foundation, had always been focused on gender equality throughout her career.

At one point, she sat down with a couple of the women board members and said, “I’m thinking about an idea here at our hospital that focuses on women’s mental health, and how women themselves can be leaders in that area, as researchers, doctors, and philanthropists.” I loved the idea of building a community of women, FOR women, and immediately set to work on the concept of womenmind: a network of philanthropists and thought leaders whose goal is to close the gender gap in mental health. We are committed to funding the research and innovation that will give all women greater access to improved mental health care. womenmind launched in March 2020, right as the pandemic hit and we went into a hard lockdown. The timing of how everything happened is interesting. Covid-19 has magnified the disproportionate burdens women face daily: lack of childcare, limited access to healthcare services, workplace inequities, physical abuse—the list goes on. Lengthy lockdowns also amplified existing mental health issues for many—anxiety and depression are at an all-time high, but

resources and access to care are still limited. It’s very clear to me, the time for womenmind is now. The world will be addressing the mental health implications of the pandemic for years to come, and women need to be leading that response. womenmind will be at the forefront of the movement: hiring women researchers, developing mentorship programs for junior scientists, and helping to evolve women’s careers in the mental health world so that underrepresented people everywhere can get the care they need. You have already accomplished so much with womenmind. How did you do that AND manage to keep yourself together this last year? I had help! I’m lucky to have the most incredible support system in my family. My husband Jim and I recently celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary. He is my greatest champion and a true partner in every sense of the word. Supporting causes we are passionate about has always been a massive part of our life together. When you’re in the same boat, it makes the work a lot more enjoyable and manageable. >>

The women of my family have also been an integral part of launching womenmind. Again, it goes back to that idea of women supporting other women: mothers supporting their daughters, granddaughters supporting their grandmothers, and so on. Instead of waiting for a solution, we as women can create it together, for each other. So I approached my daughters and granddaughters and asked them, “Is this a cause you could get behind?” Their response was overwhelmingly positive and has made the whole experience of launching womenmind that much more meaningful. Our goal is to continue growing this giving circle of women and encourage other families to join us in making real change. Together, we hope to reach our fundraising goal of $10 million by 2025. What does the future hold for you and womenmind? We have many initiatives already in motion: we have launched our second round of seed funding competitions for female researchers; a postdoctoral fellowship competition, and are currently planning the first annual womenmind Research Symposium and Knowledge Dissemination event, which will share leading-edge research, spur new collaborations and help build an international community of experts in women’s mental health. I think that with womenmind’s continued focus on anti-stigma education, research, and support for women in the sciences— there is a very bright future ahead for all Canadians. And in time, we will share that hopeful future with the whole world. //

It’s time to shake off bad pandemic habits and reawaken our minds, bodies and spirits!

TREVOR BORN M.D.

GOOD

HABITS F

or many of us, the past year has eroded our hard-won good habits—like drinking lots of water and working out regularly—and replaced them with quick-fix, selfsoothing bad habits—like drinking too much alcohol and stress eating. I’m not here to chastise anyone for picking up a few bad habits during the pandemic— goodness knows I’ve eaten a little too much pasta and skipped workouts during lockdown. But as restrictions lift, vaccination rates rise, and life returns to some kind of “normal,” it’s worth

evaluating which habits should stay and which ones have got to go. In an ideal world, good habits like exercising and clean eating would be as easy to acquire as, say, pouring yourself that second glass of wine or hitting the snooze button on your morning workout. The reality is our brains are engineered to respond to immediate reward-based stimuli. When something feels good right away, we want more of that thing. When something doesn’t give us an immediate benefit 27

(i.e. a diet that takes months to show results), our brains put that thing in the “non-essential” category. This makes it harder to form habits that contribute to long-term health. The good news is, with baby steps, strategic timing, and good old-fashioned perseverance, you can replace bad habits with good ones. Here are a few good habits to incorporate into your daily life, as well as some tips on how to replace the bad habits no longer serving you. >>

EAT A HEALTHY BREAKFAST

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day (and it’s true!), yet 31 million Americans and roughly 34% of Canadians report skipping breakfast every day. I can relate: When I wake up at 4 am to get ready for surgery, I’m not that hungry, but I make a point of eating a light, nutritious breakfast that usually includes a smoothie (Reborn Protein Powder blended with berries and ice), and an espresso (good quality If a clever water bottle is what you need to get into the habit of drinking more water—I’m all for it. Here are some other ways to incorporate healthy hydration into your daily routine:

Drink herbal teas: Infuse your water with natural additives: cucumber and mint, orange slices, cranberries, lemongrass - anything goes!

Getting in the habit of eating something small for breakfast ensures you won’t break down later that morning with something unhealthy - and that’s a habit you absolutely need to break. Those convenient drive-through breakfast sandwiches, muffins, and bagels are laden with salt, sugar and fat, and will not sustain you throughout the day. Instead, take the time the night before to get your healthy breakfast ready, or wake up 10 minutes earlier to give yourself enough time to make it that morning.

DRINK MORE WATER You’ve likely seen those gallon water bottles trending on Instagram and at the gym, and while you don’t necessarily need that much water every day, it doesn’t hurt. Most health experts recommend drinking half a gallon, or about 2 liters per day, and for good reason. Healthy hydration improves brain function, increases energy levels, aids digestion, and keeps the body’s largest organ - our skin - healthy, glowing, and youthful.

Use a hydration supplement once or twice daily: Add a scoop of Reborn Rehydrate to your water for increased antioxidant support.

TAKE YOUR VITAMINS Getting all the nutrients we need to sustain a healthy lifestyle from food alone is virtually impossible. Whether you eat a paleo, keto, vegan, or plantbased diet—there are bound to be certain nutrients missing.

Vitamin C: Apart from protecting us from immune deficiencies (especially important in the age of COVID), Vit C is involved in the formation of collagen (for bone, joint, and skin health), helps the body absorb iron, and maintains skin elasticity to fight against fine lines and wrinkles.

Truly one of the best habits you can have is practicing mild to moderate exercise daily. I’m not talking about taking a grueling spin class or running a marathon either. Just 15 minutes of lightly strenuous

Zinc: stimulates the activity of T-cells which help protect your body from infection; decreases inflammation (to guard against heart disease and cancer); stimulates hair tissue growth and repair (to prevent hair loss.) B12 Injection: Deficiency in Vitamin B12 is pretty common, especially in the older population. Regular B12 shots help increase energy levels, improve brain function, and aid in weight loss/ maintenance. Studies also show that B12 can aid in the prevention of osteoporosis, macular degeneration (vision loss), and even depression.

I stretch out, paying particular attention to my shoulders and back (which tend to become tight due to long hours in the operating room).

SMILE MORE Sure, it’s been a tough year—but there are still so many reasons to smile! A smile sets off a chemical reaction in the brain, releasing dopamine, serotonin, and endorphins, which help relieve pain and give you an overall sense of well-being and happiness. A 2012 study also shows that smiling can help reduce stress and regulate an elevated heart rate by activating neuropeptides in the brain. Audrey Fretz/ Unsplash

Be strategic with your vitamin intake. You doctor can advise you as to what you need and what to avoid. Here’s a snapshot of what I’m taking currently and why:

EXERCISE EVERY DAY

Genetic factors, lifestyle, and age can also affect what nutrients are being absorbed by your body—which is why supplementation is a good idea for just about everyone.

activity is all you need to oxygenate your blood and release dopamine, oxytocin, and serotonin into your system for a drug-free high. Come rain or come shine, every morning of mine starts with a light 20-30 minute workout to help me prepare for the day ahead. I use a resistance band to strengthen my shoulders (which helps me manage residual pain from an old injury), then I do some sit-ups and planks to work out my core, followed by some light curls and squats with a weighted bar overhead. To finish,

If you still find smiling difficult or disingenuous— try faking it. Decades of research have shown that faking a smile actually works to improve your outlook. A recent study even showed that a fake smile could “trick” the mind into interpreting the expressions and body language of others more positively, which in turn boosts our own mood.

When it comes to quitting bad habits, my approach is simple: know your triggers and avoid them in the first place. Aim to replace one bad habit with one good one every week. Instead of driving to the post office, walk or ride your bike. Instead of ordering takeout, challenge your kids to cook a nutritious meal for you. Instead of watching that extra half hour of television, turn it off and listen to a meditation podcast. The sooner you start cultivating good habits such as the ones I’ve suggested, the better you will feel. And we (should) all know by now: the better you feel, the more beautiful you look! //

NEWLOOK On a mission to re-imagine traditional “scrubs,” Dr. Born teams up with top designer

Bates Christopher by ed h p Photogra odeau ib Th Maxime

Modern Beauty: This is your first foray into “medical apparel.” What made you want to try your hand at this fashion genre? Christopher Bates: I see a lot of untapped potential for fashion in the medical industry. Clinics like TMB are staffed by elite professionals who deserve high-quality and stylish uniforms versus basic scrubs. Why Dr. Born? What do you know about him that made you want to connect? Dr. Born himself is not only a highly respected plastic surgeon but also a very fashionable and style-savvy guy.

CHRISTOPHER BATES

He’s established two beautiful clinics and has built TMB into a strong brand. This is exactly the type of client I like to work with. What was your inspiration for the design of TMB’s new staff uniforms? I was inspired by contemporary athleisure style. I want Dr. Born and his staff to enjoy putting on and wearing their uniforms. I want them to feel stylish and comfortable. What sets these uniforms apart from the rest? Cutting edge technical materials made by an incredible Italian producer. Artisanal level craftsmanship by a highly specialized factory in Northern Italy. 30

Contemporary design that takes into account form and function. What’s on the horizon for Christopher Bates? My company has the licensing rights from Paramount Pictures for TOP GUN apparel. We’re getting ready to launch the first collection in September in advance of the new film TOP GUN: Maverick coming out on November 19th. The original film is one of my favourite movies of all time so this is a real passion project. //
