Laser Hair Removal
How it works: The laser is attracted to the dark pigment of the hair, and the
intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, inhibiting future hair growth.
This treatment is most effective on patients who have light skin and dark hair.
Who’s it for? Anyone who wants to be hair free!
For the Best Outcome: We recommend up to 8 sessions for full results, but you
will start noticing a change in your hair within a few sessions.
Downtime: We advise against exercising or sweating for the first 24hrs, or doing
anything that draws heat to the area (i.e. hot-tub, sun, sauna).
We welcome laser hair removal patients who live in West Vancouver and all surrounding areas like North Vancouver, Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond, etc in British Columbia.

Microdermabrasion is considered safe for all skin types and is appropriate for Asian and dark-skinned patients who may be at risk for skin discoloration with other types of treatment. There are no serious risks associated with microdermabrasion, although some patients experience mild redness and irritation after treatment, and patients older than 70 may have a slightly escalated risk of bruising and skin abrasions. Avoiding sun exposure after microdermabrasion is important because some of the skin’s natural protection may be removed during treatment.
In patients who have a history of cold sores, undergoing microdermabrasion may reactivate the virus that causes them. In those cases, avoiding treatment around the lip area and/or taking preventative antiviral medication prior to treatment may be recommended.
Microdermabrasion is a safe facial treatment, noninvasive procedure that’s beneficial for all different skin types and conditions. Anyone who is unhappy with their skin texture or has trouble areas like sun damage or acne scarring are perfect candidates for microdermabrasion.
Microdermabrasion should not be confused with dermabrasion, which is an invasive surgical procedure typically performed by dermatologists or plastic surgeons under local or general anesthesia. Microdermabrasion is non-invasive and requires no numbing gels or medicines.
The treated area will be pink and feel dry and tight for about 24 hours. The feeling is similar to sunburn or windburn. You can use a moisturizer, but some types of makeup shouldn’t be applied until 24 hours after the procedure. Your aesthetician will advise you on the best skincare products

With Microdermabrasion, there is virtually no downtime whatsoever. The treated area may be red, dry and tight (similar to a mild sunburn) but will subside within 24hrs. You will be able to return to your day’s activities immediately after your session. As always, SPF is a must when exposed to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, especially after a Microdermabrasion treatment as the skin will be extra sensitive. It is best to avoid direct sun exposure for 2 days post treatment. Avoid use of skincare products that contain active ingredients such as Retin-A, Retinol, exfoliating acids or any other harsh cleansers or scrubs.
