Morpheus8 has been hailed as a game changer in treatment for signs of aging and unwanted imperfections. Morpheus8 is a safe and ultra effective treatment that uses microneedles to deliver radiofrequency energy under the skin to remodel tissue. This stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin that rejuvenates, thickens and tightens the skin and underlying tissue, giving a more youthful appearance. Morpheus8 is a great option if you are looking to treat wrinkles, loose skin, acne scarring, bags under the eyes, double chin/jowls and so much more.
This treatment is a color-blind and is safe to be used on all skin types. Results can be seen within your first treatment but for longer lasting results, typically 3-6 treatments are required for maximum results. Single touch up treatments are advised on average every year to maintain results.
The treatment itself takes about 45-60 minutes. Treatment feels somewhat “spicy” with the sensation of pin pricks and some heat. Our medical aesthetician will use a topical anesthetic to help minimize any discomfort. There is little to no downtime post treatment. The skin will be red for a few hours and a post treatment skin care kit with cleanser, anti-inflammatory and soothing skin balm is recommended. You will see noticeable results 10-14 days post treatment.

Treatments for: Rosacea, hyperpigmentation, age spots, sun damage/freckles
Lumecca IPL, otherwise known as Intense Pulsed Light Therapy, is a treatment that can be used to treat a multitude of different skin conditions - rosacea, hyperpigmentation and acne scarring just to name a few. Lumecca can be used on many areas of the body with the most common areas being the ones most affected by the sun - face, chest, neck and hands. Lumecca technology is the outstanding IPL treatment as it has been optimized to target trouble areas more effectively, with better results in fewer treatments. Lumecca also offers greater comfort to the client. Over time and treatments, the body’s natural healing process will remove the affected tissue that’s displaying the unwanted aging or pigment.
The treatment takes approximately 30 minutes and is relatively painless, with a slight “snapping” sensation. After the treatment, you may notice slight redness and darkening of pigmentation, lasting up to 48 hours. Results of treatment will be seen within a few days, with long lasting results after 3 to 4 treatments spaced a few weeks apart. There is no downtime with treatment but in order to be effective, candidates for treatment should stay out of the sun and use high SPF sunscreen prior to treatment. The use of retinol and Vitamin A creams also should be discontinued prior to and during the course of treatment.
Anyone with lighter skin will benefit from the rejuvenating effect of IPL. As with any IPL treatment, this technology cannot safely be used on darker skin.
Treatments for: Double chin, fine lines and wrinkles
Radio-frequency technology or RF is a non-invasive treatment that is used to tighten up the skin by delivering controlled energy beneath the top layers that stimulates new collagen and elastin production. RF remodels the tissue resulting in greater skin volume and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is tremendously effective at reducing the signs of mild to moderate aging by targeting crows feet, jawline and sagging skin on the neck.
Treatment can be done on any skin color as it is a “color-blind” treatment and can be quite relaxing, it has been compared to a hot stone massage. It is often used to maintain the results from Morpheus8 treatments without the associated treatment discomfort.
The treatment itself takes 45-60 minutes. Lasting results generally require 4 treatments a few weeks to a month apart depending on what is being treated. A major standout for RF treatments is there is no downtime, with skin redness disappearing within 30 minutes and results visible immediately.
It is also very effective in the treatment of dry eye disease. In fact, Forma is the only Health Canada device approved for the treatment of dry eye disease due to Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD).
Treatments for: Unwanted hair
Diolaze is widely recognized as one of the safest and most effective treatment technologies to remove unwanted hair. DiolazeXL is powerful enough to remove the most stubborn hair and prevents future growth. Due to the large treatment spot size, this treatment has a speedy and efficient effect, ensuring client comfort is at the forefront of this procedure. A mild warming sensation can be felt for a quick period of time as the laser passes over the treatment area. This is what makes DiolazeXL the leader in laser hair removal.
Areas that can be treated safely with diolaze include bikini, legs, arms, back, chest, shoulders, stomach, neck, underarms, chin, sideburns, upper lip and almost any area with unwanted hair. Due to the nature of IPL Laser hair removal this service is not suitable for everyone.
Lighter coloured hair, such as white, gray, or light blonde, may be more difficult to treat than darker hair that is red, brown, or black.
Lasting results require at least 3 and up to 6 sessions for permanent results, depending on hair color/type and skin tone. The length of the treatment time varies depending on the surface area that is being treated. In preparation for laser hair removal make sure you shave the night before or the morning of your treatment. This is a precaution as the hair can absorb the laser energy itself instead of directly hitting the hair follicle making the treatment ineffective.
After your laser hair removal, you may notice some slight redness and swelling which should go away within 48 hours. Avoid shaving, plucking or waxing hair after treatment.
Neurotoxin injections can be can used to smooth wrinkles, prevent migraine headaches and treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). Our licensed nurse injector uses a fine needle to inject small amounts of neurotoxins into the treatment area. Depending on the issue, you may receive several injections in different spots.
The discomfort is usually mild. The injections may sting and feel uncomfortable, but the procedure is over quickly. You can return to work and most activities immediately after treatment. To reduce redness, swelling or bruising, don’t rub or put pressure on the treatment area for 12 hours, stay upright (don’t lie down) for three to four hours, and avoid physical exertion for 24 hours. Treatments last about 3-4 months depending on what area is being treated.
Neurotoxins can also ease migraine symptoms by blocking the chemicals that signal pain transmission. In general, neurotoxins for migraines works better with every additional treatment but have good results after the second or third session.
Neurotoxins can be used for hyperhidrosis by blocking the nerve signals that instruct the sweat glands to become active. It takes just a few days to see results, and depending on the area beating treated, the results last for up to six months.
Dermal fillers are a popular cosmetic treatment that involves injecting a gel-like substance into the skin to smooth out wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging. These fillers are made of various substances, including hyaluronic acid and collagen, which are naturally found in the body. Dermal fillers are commonly used to add volume to hollow areas, enhance facial features like lips and cheeks, and improve skin texture.
The procedure is non-invasive and typically takes less than an hour to complete. While there may be minor side effects like bruising and swelling, dermal fillers are generally considered safe and effective, providing a more youthful and refreshed appearance without the need for surgical intervention.
Fillers can last anywhere from 6 to 12 months, with some lasting up to a few years. Talk to our experienced nurse injector to decide what may be right for your cosmetic goals.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive yet powerful procedure for your skin that can decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, scarring and stretch marks. Our medical aesthetician uses thin, tiny needles to penetrate the top layer of your skin. The tiny needles superficially break through the skin’s epidermis which helps stimulate your skin’s healing process, leaving the skin to produce more collagen and elastin. This helps the skin to look more plump, bright and youthful.
The treatment can take up to 60 minutes and typically results are noticeable after just a few sessions. For maximum results 3-6 treatments of microneedling is required, we recommend that our clients get treatment every 6-8 weeks. The downtime for microneedling is approximately 24-48 hours as you wait for your body to begin its natural healing process.
After your treatment, avoid direct and prolonged sun exposure for at least two weeks. Keep your skin hydrated and drink plenty of water.
Dermaplaning is a non-invasive type of exfoliation that uses a small, sharp blade to reveal a smoother and brighter texture to the face. Dermaplaning removes unwanted peach fuzz and removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the surface of the face, revealing smooth and fresh skin. Benefits include increased absorption of topical products such as cleansers & moisturizers, diminishes the appearance of fine lines and gently exfoliates your skin for a more even, brighter skin tone.
The treatment is a quick service with immediate results that can be performed in 30 minutes and has no downtime. This is a service that can be enjoyed by everyone. Results will last anywhere between 3-4 weeks as this is the skin's usual rejuvenation cycle. Dermaplaning treatments can be booked on this cycle for a continuous fresh skin look.

OxyGeneo is a three-in-one skin exfoliation facial that boosts the body’s natural mechanism of oxygenating the skin from within. This soothing and calming treatment will provide lasting results and improve the overall texture and tone of your skin.
The treatment is a 3-step process – exfoliation, infusion, and oxygenation. The first step is like microdermabrasion where the upper layer of the skin is exfoliated to remove dead cells, smooth, and renew the skin. This helps prepare the skin to receive active nutrients. In the second step, a cleaning capsule called ‘capsugen’ is used to cleanse the skin while infusing nutrient-rich active ingredients such as NeoBright, NeoRevive and Charcoal Balance. NeoRevive helps the skin in rejuvenation and anti-aging, whereas NeoBright mostly helps the skin in brightening and texture improvement. After that, in the third step, OxyGeneo produces CO2 bubbles which gently burst on the skin surface creating a physiological response, sending oxygen-rich blood to the area, increasing capillary flow and skin metabolism. This oxygenation results in optimal absorption of active ingredients by the skin.
OxyGeneo facials take between 30-45 minutes and have zero downtime. Skin is left looking fresh and revitalized right after treatment. If you are booking an OxyGeneo facial for an upcoming event, schedule your treatment for the day before as results will then be well visible during your event!
