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.
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.

Physiques sore from boxing confrontational shadows can revel in ache-erasing kneads and soothing oils employed during holistic massage therapy, and loose epidermal exteriors tighten after proper coaxing from radio frequencies used in body-contouring treatments.
Before or after appointments, clients can relax in a lounge distinguished by cushy couches, modern decor, and a crackling fireplace.

The technicians at Ilaaj Clinic skip over unproven skin creams in favour of Obagi's and AFA's clinically tested skincare products, which they use to combat signs of aging, rosacea, pigmentation, and acne. They also turn to Canada White Smile products to brighten teeth.
