Botox and fillers aren’t new players in the beauty game but they have never been as hot as they are now. It seems like these days, everyone and their mother (and their mother’s mother) are getting injectables. While the products have been around and used cosmetically for over a decade, we didn’t dare utter a word about the enhancements for years.

This non-invasive treatment gently exfoliates your skin. After a series of treatments, your complexion will appear smoother, brighter and more even in color, which is why microdermabrasion is one the most popular procedures at our Vancouver laser and skin care center.

I’m planning my wedding for spring and it’s made me think about how I want to look on my big day and, in particular, how I want my skin to appear. My photos are one the most important components to me since, after all, they’re one of the few things I get to keep (aside from the memories and dress, of course). With all of the planning and spending, I don’t want dull skin, blemishes or dark under eye circles to ruin my hard work. Now that I’ve realized my wedding is only seven months away, I’ve put together a treatment plan. Some of my skin concerns are fairly common, so I’ll share my wedding skin care plan first before offering a roadmap for treating other skin conditions prior to saying, “I do.”
Our skin is our largest organ and the only one directly tied to how we look. Just like the rest of the body, it needs nutrients to thrive.

So, here it is…they get laser facials on the regular.
When nail fungus rears its ugly head it can be a seriously frustrating problem. It begins as a white or yellow spot under the tip of your fingernail or toenail. As the fungal infection goes deeper, nail fungus may cause your nail to discolor, thicken and crumble at the edge. It can affect several nails and sometimes even spread. To make matters worse, it’s tricky to treat and there doesn’t seem to be one solution for all. If left alone and not treated, it’s unlikely to get better. If you’re not bothered by it, you might decide it’s not worth treating since treatment can take a long time, may cause side effects and isn’t always effective. If it does concern you, we’ll help you identify a few ways you can restore clear, healthy nails.
