Within a black-and-white 1,500-square-foot facility embellished with tropical accents, Kucumber Skin Lounge's physician-supervised medical aestheticians enhance earthly edifices with hair removal sessions performed with lasers or customized wax, Botox injections, and cutting-edge skin treatments such as hydrafacials, photofacials, and chemical peels. Tattoo removal services rid bodies of the names of ex-lovers or outdated maps leading to safe-deposit boxes hidden during the Y2K scare. Other body beautifiers include tanning and specialized cosmetic treatments.

The technicians and clinicians at Essential Hair and Care specialize in treating hair loss, but their clinic addresses a wide variety of health and aesthetic needs. Some treatments—ranging from natural hair restoration to detoxification—are selected a la carte, while programs promote wellness by combining services such as massage, vitamin injections, and light therapy administered by low-level lasers instead of empathetic fireflies. But no matter what the desired outcome, the staff is guided by a three-pronged philosophy of character, commitment, and change to help open healthier chapters in clients’ lives.
The Pearl Essence staff helps patients relax and reboot while undergoing beauty-bolstering services. Extra oxygen atoms break through stains during their water-based teeth-whitening treatments, which are designed to brighten teeth up to eight shades as patients recline on comfy facial beds before 50-inch TVs.
Extending their cleansing touch, techs send patients home with teeth-whitening products they can use while doing chores or making squid-ink smoothies. Pearl Essence also keeps skin smooth with an array of waxing techniques and relaxes the muscles below with hot-stone and aromatherapy massages. For added sparkle, the staff adorns teeth with jewels and vajazzles ladies’ bikini areas with glittery designs.
The staff at UV Optical stocks hundreds of prescription sunglasses and eyeglasses from brands such as Dior, Ray-Ban, and Emporio Armani. Licensed, in-store opticians match customers with appropriate prescriptions during complimentary in-store sight testing, help them find new frames, and hand over completely ready eyewear in less than an hour. After new specs are toted home, they're covered with a free one-year frame guarantee, which covers a single damage-causing incident, such as sledding face-first down a sand dune. The opticians always offer free repairs or adjustments at either of UV Optical's two locations.
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.
The cosmetic procedures at New Look Laser entwine classic aesthetics with noninvasive Western technology. Using this mix, the staff of certified technicians can help patients vanquish flab with an FDA-approved LipoLaser, banish unwanted hair with laser hair-removal services using the LightSheer XC diode laser, and fade discoloration with teeth whitening. No matter what aesthetic treatment patients choose, they first undergo a comprehensive consultation to discuss their concerns, goals, and favourite celebrity baby names.
