The leading skin-care expert at G.C. & Co. Salon & Med Spa, Gianna Ugolini is always looking for new techniques and treatments to bring her clients the next best thing in skin care.

Using non-invasive tools and her most powerful asset of all, her own hands, Ugolini lifts cheekbones, contours jawlines and brightens up eyes, leaving clients feeling fresh, tightened and toned.
Q. What is RF Skin Tightening?
A. Radio frequency (RF) skin tightening is a non-invasive treatment. Energy penetrates the epidermis and dermis, gently heating tissue and stimulating subdermal collagen production. It reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and loose skin, while tightening and rejuvenating with no damage or downtime.
Q. Why do you love Non-Invasive Microneedling?
A. Non-Invasive Microneedling is my favourite tool to date. It creates micro channels that reach the dermis, allowing a tincture that I blend together to work effectively. No bleeding, no downtime, boosts collagen, diminishes fine lines and results are instant.
Q. What are the benefits to treating your skin regularly?
A. The benefit of getting monthly facials is to maintain that healthy glow. One skin cycle is 28 days, so when you come for a facial we slough away dead skin cells that make your skin look dull. Regular facials also keep the muscles contoured and lifted.
Q. How can you shrink large pores?
A. Pore-minimizing products are only able to work if the pores are emptied; you can’t shrink a pore if it is filled with oil. Pore-reduction products used in conjunction with regular facials will allow them to work effectively. Our pore-reduction drops by DMK work to tighten pores without stripping the skin of natural oils and do not contain astringents, alcohols or abrasives.
Q. What can people do between facials to maintain a healthy glow?
A. Exfoliating is a must in order to keep dead skin cells from building up. If the skin is coated with a layer of dead skin cells, products cannot penetrate. Masking two to three times a week is also essential and my personal favourite! Eminence Organic Skin Care has over 25 masks to help with your skin-care concerns. The right mask will hydrate, remove excess oils, improve the appearance of your pores and pull out impurities.
Q. What advice would you give to people who want to start taking care of their skin?
A. My advice to them would be to come in to have their skin analyzed, so that they know what to use at home. I give them a clean slate, and I send them home with their new skin-care routine. Aside from that, sunscreen is key because sun exposure increases the risk of skin cancer, wrinkles and dark spots, so wearing sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher on a daily basis is essential.
