Helen relies on sophisticated technology such as bipolar radio frequencies and ultrasound to fight wrinkles and other dermal imperfections on her clients' faces and bodies. Radio frequency treatments can be used to stimulate collagen regeneration, which in turn leads to tighter skin and a better defense against the pinches of nosy aunts. Ultrasound treatments also work to tighten the skin by targeting the deep, subbasement of the dermis and strengthening the connective tissue therein. Helen also offers traditional cleansing facials and chemical peels, along with waxing services and Reiki energy therapy.

Surinda Gill has more than a decade of experience in the medical-cosmetic industry, but she doesn't keep her knowledge of advanced, non-surgical aesthetic treatments to herself. She dedicated five years of her life to helping med-spa professionals by training more than 450 doctors, nurses, and technicians in the art of laser hair removal. At Skinflex Phototherapy Laser Clinic, she focuses her expertise on her clientele, using cutting-edge techniques and technology to create drastic cosmetic improvements.
The clinic offers a variety of traditional spa treatments—including facials, massages, and waxing sessions—although there is an emphasis on medically-based procedures. Using a LightSheer diode cosmetic laser system, the staff can easily zap away unwanted stubble or entertain neighbourhood cats. Microdermabrasion treatments, meanwhile, improve skin tone and texture by reducing uneven pigmentation and removing dead cells.
At Viva Clinic, the powers of nature and advanced technology unite. Not to save the world at the end of a summer blockbuster, but—equally important—to transform skin. Facials leave skin looking younger and brighter, while laser hair removal gets rid of hair for flawlessly smooth skin. Along with skin care, the staff pampers guests with massage therapy and helps heal with acupuncture treatments.
