Katie Marshall's beauty mastery stretches beyond her aesthetics practice. Trained at Vogue Esthetics College and Sternberg College, the certified medical aesthetics practitioner has amassed a deep understanding of how treatments interact with various skin types. During brief consultations, she assesses each new client's skin using a special magnifier that reveals the epidermal effects of genes and lifestyle. Taking into consideration individual goals and whether or not any groundhogs popped out of the pores to see their shadows, she then charts a custom treatment course. Katie is certified to administer an ever-expanding assortment of treatments, including Ultra Sonic facial, waxing, and PCA clinical facials.
Bottles of PCA Skin and Dermalogica products are aplenty inside Aura Skin Care Services, aiding skilled estheticians combat stubborn skin conditions during custom facials. They aim to diminish fine lines, mop up excess oil, and send acne fleeing from faces.
For close to three decades, Nima and the family members that help her operate her day spa have helped guests enhance the connection between their minds and bodies. This mission was further refined in recent years, when, after working long hours in the stressful, highly competitive beauty industry, the team knew it was time for a change from invasive surgeries and harsh chemicals. So, they set their sights on holistic body-beautifying treatments. Today, their menu of restorative services includes relaxing, organic sugar-scrub treatments and infrared body wraps designed to boost the metabolism with soothing thermal energy. Certified technicians also target stubborn fat cells with LipoLaser treatments or faradic-current sessions that, like doing the Running Man, simulate the effects of physical exercise.
It looks a bit like a distant cousin of the R2-D2 droid from Star Wars: it's a modular, upright unit on four wheels with a display screen that could double for a face. But the Harmony XL laser is a primary tool the technicians at Avante Laser & Aesthetics use to beautify their clients. It addresses more than 60 skin conditions, smoothing wrinkles, fading age spots, and removing tattoos. It's also used during Avante's laser hair-removal sessions.
Avante's other main beautification device is the HydraFacial machine. This is used to suction out debris from pores and push serums deep into the face for intense hydration. It can also slough off dead skin cells and glitter makeup left over from childhood beauty pageants with its diamond-tip microdermabrasion, and it can brighten faces during LED treatments.
Soon after she conquered the crippling pain of fibromyalgia, Dr. Shelly Kassam devoted her life to helping others find the same comfort in their own skin. She teamed up with Dr. Omar Kassam to found Yaletown Laser Centre, where the pair began devising treatments that blend advanced medicine with the holistic healing arts that Dr. Shelly discovered on her journey of recovery in India.
Today, an experienced staff assists the doctors as they perform skincare and dental services. While Dr. Shelly brushes away dead skin cells with microdermabrasion treatments or zaps unwanted hair with her precision laser, Dr. Omar whitens teeth, affixes porcelain veneers, and tests the conductivity of aluminum-foil grills.
