Certified technician Kelly MacDonald knows firsthand the transformative power of modern skincare technology. After receiving successful treatments herself, she decided to pursue a career in med-spa services, studying with surgeon-turned-researcher Dr. Yousef Shihab at the Cosmedic Laser Institute in Vancouver. MacDonald is now the owner and operator of Neos Wellness Spa, a joint venture undertaken with her fiancé. She uses her practice as a platform to directly share her experiences with others instead of through impersonal skywriting. MacDonald fulfills that mission by keeping fingers on the pulse of the latest products and aesthetic developments in laser, radio-frequency, and ultrasound technology. Her spa features an entire staff of employees that are all physician-trained. After a complimentary consultation to discuss each patient's goals, she recommends the best approach to address acne and spider veins or fine lines and other signs of aging. MacDonald employs the multi-function laser's intense pulsed light to disable follicles and remove hair. To target excess weight, she performs radio-frequency treatments and ultrasonic wave techniques that shrink fat cells so much, Rick Moranis couldn't find them in his backyard.

Patients slip into fleece robes before beginning treatment with Bryana Mann, a laser technician who has undergone extensive training with Cutera equipment. Bryana employs Cutera's technology to diminish skin issues such as acne, wrinkles, and damage from blinking messages to the sun in Morse code. The spa's signature 3D Facelift combines laser rejuvenation with radiofrequency technology, changing the way skin looks and acts. Treatments such as surface-smoothing microdermabrasion or Accent skin-tightening sessions keep faces and bodies looking youthful.
Tall windows flood the lobby with natural light, illuminating leather couches and shelves lined with Viviere Skin Care products. A textured stone wall stands behind the front desk, and a wall fountain fills the air with a peaceful babbling.
Though their utility belts contain diverse tools—lasers and body-wrap fabrics among them—the aestheticians at Kelowna Body Care & Contouring Spa all combat a common enemy: sagging skin. Targeting wrinkles and cellulite alike in a multitude of services, aestheticians apply the same expertise to two-hour Universal Contour body wraps that they bring to skin-exfoliating cold-laser light therapy. When applied during specialized facials, lasers can address blemishes, bothersome wrinkles, and age spots that refuse to shrink no matter how often you verbally berate them. The staff also administer several traditional spa treatments to soothe clients, including relaxation massages, reflexology, and mani-pedis.
Like painters with a palate of numerous colours, the estheticians and technicians at Okanagan Lipo Laser & Spa nurture their clients' outer beauty with a myriad of cosmetic treatments. Brandishing serums enriched with vitamin C, ginkgo biloba, and aloe vera, staff members help soothe skin while bolstering its elasticity and vibrancy. Laser systems calibrated to specific frequencies aim to perform a variety of tasks, such as contouring the torso and hips, stimulating collagen production, and eliminating poltergeists hiding behind clients' ears. Technicians also utilize stand up tanning booths, an infrared sauna, a vibration machine, ionic footbaths, and light-driven teeth-whitening systems to further tune-up appearances.
