Framed prints of flowers hang on dark, burgundy walls, illuminated by light cast from a curved, modern floor lamp. Between them, leather couches and chairs sit waiting to cradle visitors with their wraparound backs and arms. Cream carpeting gives way to tiled flooring as visitors make their way from the waiting area to treatment rooms—and while they walk, they follow in the footsteps of elite clients that include Ravi Bansal, the 2009 Miss Universe Canada contestant.
Within treatment nooks in their locations in Vancouver and Surrey, therapists refine skin and ease tension through a range of services that include massages, laser hair reduction, microdermabrasion, permanent makeup, mani-pedis, and weight-loss treatments, among others. The Compu-Lift machine is one of many star technologies at the med spa, infusing the face with ultrasonic vibration and microcurrents in order to oxygenate skin and counteract signs of aging such as wrinkles and dark spots that spell out your birth year.
Back in 1963, there weren't many options for men and women in western Canada who were suffering from hair loss. Knowing that people couldn't easily travel to big cities or ZZ Top’s lair to find solutions to their hair growth problems, Harry Beleshko decided to create SIR 101 Hair Restoration Specialists so he could bring internationally cultivated expertise to their doorsteps. Beleshko journeyed to Hollywood, Europe, Asia, and other locations across the globe, training with industry professionals and seeking out the latest products and techniques.
Today, Beleshko and his team of medical professionals, laser therapists, hair-replacement technicians, and hair stylists bring together those years of research and travel, offering more experience and a smaller, more boutique-like feel than many international hair-loss firms. They perform a variety of advanced medical and cosmetic treatments, including laser hair therapy, topical formulas, and hair replacement or transplantation.
Laser Health Centre's certified beam-wielders lasers in rejuvenating cosmetic procedures, drug-free pain relief, and behavioural-modification regimens for substance abuse and smoking cessation. Staff members customize treatments to suit each patient, and in-office laser therapy may be reinforced by take-home nutritional supplements. An exclusive diet plan paired with laser therapy tackles weight-loss goals, and light-based medicine enhances the mind-soothing stress-relief program.
At Age Less Medi-Spas, certified technicians draw from an armoury of diode lasers, Diathermie RF, and Nd:YAG systems in themed private treatment rooms featuring down-lined beds. Led by Director of Clinical Esthetics and Integrative Medicine Marilia Silva-Brand, skin therapists examine visages. Patrons emerge from their sessions looking excitedly into mirrors to inspect slowly dissipating bald patches after laser hair restoration, newly developed bald patches after laser hair removal, or waistlines shrinking from body-sculpting laser treatments. The spa provides ample free parking for cars, and sunsets on demand for horses to ride off into.
