Amid warm-toned walls, decorative screens, and pastel paintings, Shelley Rinas puts lasers to work to oust unwanted body hair, minimize the appearance of brown spots and varicose veins, and tighten skin with four categories of treatments. An electrologist for more than 25 years, Ms. Rinas has continued her education to keep herself up-to-date with newer laser technologies, such as IPL.
To slow the aging process, the staff at Almost Famous Laser Corp opts for advanced technologies. For instance, the Elōs-powered Syneron eMax laser removes unwanted hair, pigmentation, and spider veins, and the ReFirme and Triniti treatments help tighten skin. For more traditional cosmetic care, they also can rejuvenate complexions using chemical peels.
The skilled technicians at Iris Beauty Solution perform services that address skin concerns ranging from dry skin to unwanted hairs. Each beauty-enhancing regimen begins with a consultation, where clients receive in-depth service descriptions and a chance to ask questions about string theory before signing the consent form. To expedite service, Iris Beauty Solution posts open appointment slots through its online booking portal.
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.
Channelling medical and beautification experience, the aestheticians at Voka Deka Esthetics Salon personify the venue's fusion of science and cosmetic art. This theme carries over to its facials, each of which combines botanicals and advanced skincare formulas to remedy a specific ailment, such as acne or signs of aging. With hard or soft wax and high-quality supplies like botanical products and Egyptian cotton muslin, the staff also eradicate fuzz from the body, making vine-swinging commutes to work more aerodynamic.
The aestheticians and laser specialists at Kitsilano Laser & Spa Centre help patrons achieve their aesthetic goals with advanced technology such as the GentleYAG laser, Sapphire 3 photorejuvenation machine, and Vitasonix microdermabrasion machine. They wield the YAG laser to permanently reduce hair on all skin types, including tanned and magenta skin, and use ultrasonic currents to tone facial muscles and lift the skin. Clients can also take advantage of less invasive spa services with waxing, mani-pedis, and soothing massages.
