Scalpels and sutures have no place at Celebrity Laser Care. Instead, the clinic's skilled technicians use high-tech treatments to help tighten skin, contour curves, and eliminate unsightly marks. The facility offers a host of nonsurgical methods to combat signs of aging; for instance, the skin-tightening treatment heats the skin beneath the surface to help tighten almost any bodily area, such as the face, neck, abdomen, or arms. The Limelight IPL targets brown spots and sun damage, and works even better when matched with the exfoliating, diamond-tip microdermabrasion treatment. Beyond treating signs of aging, the technicians can blast body hair and swat away spider-vein webs and their confused arachnid inhabitants, all with their powerful, but safe, laser systems. Upon entering the crisp-white facility, patrons will notice a gallery of pharmaceutical-grade skincare products, such as Obagi, DCL, and Jane Iredale cosmetics, which may be used during facials or other services.
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.
At English Bay EyeWorx, Dr. Nicholas Catchuk helps patients overcome the anxiety of undergoing eye exams by spelling out each step of the process. He channels his more than 10 years of experience in checking for ailments such as glaucoma and corneal disease and answering questions that range from “is dilating my pupil necessary?” to “why do I light fires when I squint?”
After Dr. Catchuk establishes prescriptions, the crew of opticians helps patients peruse rotating displays of frames by designers such as Versace and Headline. Patients can simultaneously model up to four frames on a split-screen viewer, helpful for comparing which eyewear flatters faces the most or which set of eyes blink first.
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.
The team at Vis Vita Medical Wellness and Regeneration Clinic demonstrates its commitment to effective beauty and wellness treatments by combining the traditional with the technological. Clients relax during 3,000-year-old acupuncture treatment while elsewhere, lasers and low-frequency waves target cellulite and adipose tissue. Skin-resurfacing equipment sloughs off the outermost layer of skin alongside facials that are infused with natural ingredients such as green tea and botanicals.
The certified technicians at InkOff Laser Tattoo Removal wield the Quanta Q-Plus laser to diminish or remove all colours of body art. While skin is kept cool and comfortable with the Zimmer Cryo system, the laser breaks up ink particles for eventual removal through the lymphatic system. Most patients begin seeing results after one or two treatments, but more may be necessary to completely remove tattoos.
