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 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.
Born with mid-back scoliosis, missing discs in his lower back, and a reverse curve of the neck, Steve Butler endured his fair share of pain growing up. He understood firsthand—after seeing his father and sister undergo surgeries for similar ailments—that modern medicine was still not good enough. As he struggled with intense headaches, blackouts, and enough pain to keep him from walking for long periods of time, he began to explore alternatives, including Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and chiropractics—all to no avail. The answer, as it turned out, was all in his breath.
Today, Butler performs his specialized back-healing methods at his aptly named studio, The Backhealer. His method? In the simplest terms, Butler instructs his clients to lie down and breathe. By combining concise breathing techniques with pressure applied to specific tissues and muscles, Butler is able to help clients regain flexibility in their hips and back, and ultimately eliminate pain. He also combines the breathing and massage techniques with a series of exercises designed to reform the way the body moves and behaves, which in turn helps to reduce the chance of having reoccurring injuries or reoccurring nightmares about acrobats. As the founder of this movement, Butler also educates the masses through Backhealer training sessions, which equip his loyal followers with the tools to help others recover.
Healthee is a healthful alternative to fast food for the health-conscious consumer on the go, with a full menu of fresh-made salads, wraps, soups, and more for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. A veggie-filled soup and chili bar offers control freaks the fun of crowning their own portions from the topping bar ($4.50+) and custom-created chopped salads ($6.95+), and wraps ($6.95+) provide a bevy of bright and beautiful ingredient options, including fresh avocado, dried apricots, candied pecans, and edamame. Although servings are assembled swiftly on-site, agoraphobes and time-crunched cartographers can also call ahead to place their orders.
Situated in the Leg In Boot Square, False Creek Skin Solution Clinic surrounds itself with stunning scenery fully complemented by a stylish, spa-like interior. Inside private treatment rooms, a trained staff revamps facades using SkinCeuticals and Obagi Medical skincare products along with highly advanced technology. They wield Cutera laser systems to banish veins, hair, and sun spots and deftly plump up fine lines with dermal fillers and Botox. Offering a variety of other treatments including Latisse, rosacea treatments, microdermabrasion, and skin tightening, they begin each session with a complimentary consultation to assess clients' needs and concerns before determining the best possible treatment option.
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.
