Dr. Henry Ngai was an early adopter of IPL, introducing the equipment into his cosmetic practice in 1991. Today, he continues to stay ahead in the industry by constantly seeking out new technologies. His clinic currently houses more than 15 lasers, each designed to treat skin issues including acne, scars, fine lines, pigmentation, hair removal, leg veins and tattoos removal.
A father-son team, Dickson Flyfishing guides and teaches fly-fishing to all levels of anglers on Olympic Peninsula waters, Puget Sound rivers, and many eastern Washington rivers. Conscious of their environmental impact, they lead eco-rafting trips throughout the year on the Skagit, Sauk, and Queets Rivers, as well as fishing trips for steelhead, cutthroat trout, and salmon with scales made of gold. More adventurous clients can embark on winter fly-fishing trips for tarpon on the flats of the Caribbean or three-day campouts on the Grande Ronde River. Additionally, scenic rafting tours bring visitors up close to wildlife such as eagles. Dickson Flyfishing also runs a virtual fly shop, where they sell their own line of equipment.

Clinic director and surgeon Dr. Segal oversees a well trained staff of hair harvesters that rounds up ready-to-pick follicles using gentle laser technology. The clinic’s high-tech hair-removal equipment channels safe radio frequencies in conjunction with light energy to stunt actively sprouting hairs at the follicles. Fingers can rid themselves of excess hair (a $50 value per session), and ladies can strut puddle side with confidence after thorough bikini line maintenance (a $175 value per session). To reduce redness and discomfort, Segal Vein and Laser simultaneously cools the surface of the skin. Unlike flailing toward a wall of flypaper, Segal Vein and Laser’s treatments typically do not require recovery time.
Since Oakridge Laser & Skin Care Clinic's service menu leans so heavily on advanced medical procedures?think laser vein removal and even intense-pulsed-light skin rejuvenation?it's a good thing the centre is run by Dr. Shihab, a physician with an impressive background.

The clinic is also home to a spa side, where staffers relieve muscle tension with five kinds of massage, groom hands with peppermint-sugar scrubs, and cleanse faces with minerals and skincare products from Bhoomi Minerals.
The technicians at Ilaaj Clinic skip over unproven skin creams in favour of Obagi's and AFA's clinically tested skincare products, which they use to combat signs of aging, rosacea, pigmentation, and acne. They also turn to Canada White Smile products to brighten teeth.
