When other pregnant women were worrying about potential stretch marks, Jennifer Desloges was hiding her face. Early into her pregnancy, an influx of hormones caused her to grow a full beard, which thickened at the chin. After eight years of struggling with tweezing and other temporary fixes, she discovered electrolysis in 1990, and was relieved to find a permanent solution. Now, as the founder of Jade Electrolysis, Jennifer can ease the minds of patients by zapping their unwanted body hair.
Electra Laser's skin-rejuvenation clinic, featured on 94.5 FM's The Kid Carson Show, helps restore youthful glows to both men's and women's faces during facials and non-invasive microdermabrasion treatments. After analyzing faces to determine the best treatment plan and level of exfoliation, expert therapists magically pull the DiamondTome microdermabrasion machine from their clients’ hats and equip it with a diamond-chip wand tip that can vary by size and coarseness to target skin conditions such as sun damage, acne, and unwanted pigmentation. Wands glide over faces and precisely exfoliate and remove the top-most layer of the epidermis, promoting collagen and new skin layer production. During the customized mask treatment, skin artisans paint faces in a refreshing, oil-free gel that invigorates and brings moisture back to dry skin with a blend of calming botanicals and antioxidant vitamins free from artificial fragrances and colours. Clients usually emerge from the 30–45 minute treatment with minimal or no downtime after the procedure, allowing a return to daily activities and flash mobs at the mall almost immediately.
Nothing lasts forever, but try telling that to the aestheticians and laser technicians at Eternal Skin Care. The spa?s staff challenges that familiar adage every day, whether with organic facials that erase fine lines or dermal fillers that restore plumpness to cheeks and lips.

Led by Dr. Dinesh Mistry?a specialist in aesthetic medicine and skincare technologies such as Botox, Restylane, and Juv?derm?the med-spa staff uses science to combat the ravages of time. The spa?s laser treatments are a particular specialty. Wielding versatile Cutera lasers, techs zap unwanted hair, spider veins, and mutinous planets with minimal risk to healthy skin.
Clients of The Gentle Touch sometimes refer to the staff of certified electrologists and medical experts as the "esteem team," a title with a meaning that's two-fold. On the one-hand, it stems from the fact they use multiple types of hair removal treatments, microdermabrasion, and photofacials to improve their guests appearances and overall self-esteem. On the other, it is rooted in the high esteem in which patients hold The Gentle Touch, a company that is TAPE BC-certified to perform all three methods of electrolysis

Elena and the aestheticians at Vernissage Salon Spa pamper skin and nails with traditional beauty services and specialized med-spa treatments.
