It’s one of our favourite times in Vancouver, Pride Week! We love how it draws people together to celebrate who they are and whatever lifestyle they choose to lead. Not to mention it’s an awesome party!
Vancouver Pride Week serves as a great reminder to be happy with who we are. Working in the beauty and health industry, day after day we meet people who are embarrassed or even ashamed of their appearance. That’s why we take such pride in what we do, as we see our clients’ confidence and self-esteem levels go from 0 to 100 after their treatments. This is especially the case after two of our services in particular: laser hair removal and photorejuvenation.
Our culture loves the look of smooth, sleek, and hairless skin. So when you’re genetically predisposed to have thick, coarse hair in areas that you’d rather not, it’s bound to cause some embarrassment. When our clients see dramatic hair loss after just one appointment, you can almost feel their confidence levels go up. Now they’re wearing tank tops, bikinis, and short-shorts without thinking twice.

Photorejuvenation is also an effective way to restore the skin – and self-esteem. With consistent treatments prescribed by our medical estheticians, it’s an effective and non-invasive method of fighting acne, pigmentation, and vascular issues like rosacea, telangiectasia (“spider veins”), and red spots. Using pulsed light, it penetrates the skin to restore skin’s youthful, flawless appearance.
Life is too short to be unhappy, so start taking pride in who you are and what you have to offer. Remember: real beauty comes from within!
