Nothing lasts forever, but try telling that to the aestheticians and laser technicians at Eternal Skin Care. The spa’s staff challenges that familiar adage every day, whether with organic facials that erase fine lines or dermal fillers that restore plumpness to cheeks and lips.
Though the menu of traditional spa services includes makeup applications and waxing treatments, what sets Eternal Skin Care apart is its focus on clinical, results-oriented med-spa services. Led by Dr. Dinesh Mistry—a specialist in aesthetic medicine and skincare technologies such as Botox, Restylane, and Juvéderm—the med-spa staff uses science to combat the ravages of time. The spa’s laser treatments are a particular specialty. Wielding versatile Cutera lasers, techs zap unwanted hair, spider veins, and mutinous planets with minimal risk to healthy skin.
Clients of The Gentle Touch sometimes refer to the staff of certified electrologists and medical experts as the "esteem team," a title with a meaning that's two-fold. On the one-hand, it stems from the fact they use multiple types of hair removal treatments, microdermabrasion, and photofacials to improve their guests appearances and overall self-esteem. On the other, it is rooted in the high esteem in which patients hold The Gentle Touch, a company that is TAPE BC-certified to perform all three methods of electrolysis.
Inside this full-service beauty center, estheticians groom clients for head to toe using medical-grade serums and technologically advanced treatments. Have hair removed the traditional way through waxing, or opt for long-lasting smoothness with laser hair removal or electrolysis. Lasers also trail along skin to melt fat cells, resulting in smoother curves and shadows that easily slip through sidewalk cracks. For the face, the team caters to each skin type with PCA products and enhances natural beauty with permanent makeup.
When other pregnant women were worrying about potential stretch marks, Jennifer Desloges was hiding her face. Early into her pregnancy, an influx of hormones caused her to grow a full beard, which thickened at the chin. After eight years of struggling with tweezing and other temporary fixes, she discovered electrolysis in 1990, and was relieved to find a permanent solution. Now, as the founder of Jade Electrolysis, Jennifer can ease the minds of patients by zapping their unwanted body hair.
Founded by a 25-year beauty veteran, Beauty Matters unites clients with a wealth of skincare services. Three methods of hair removal—wax, lasers, and electrolysis—clear away unwanted strands to keep surfaces smooth. During facials, aestheticians pull from Éminence Organic’s line of products to exfoliate and moisturize complexions. An on-site permanent-makeup artist fills in sparse brows, negating the need to apply makeup each morning or after every eyebrow wiggle.
Since 1987, Fairview Electrolysis Clinic founder Evelyn Geatros has cleared away unwanted hair growth on areas ranging from small regions of the face to large body areas. During thermolysis sessions, she uses delicate filaments to send high-frequency currents into individual follicles, destroying the root and inhibiting future growth. She uses new disposable filaments for every treatment, ensuring a sterile environment.
