The 4 Keys to Successful Weight Loss

July 5th, 2022 — 2:01pm

Every year, especially in the summer, fad diets or summer diet hacks pop up in magazines and online that promise you’ll lose a lot of weight in a short amount of time.

Fad diets can sound plausible, but there is usually little evidence that they actually work.

Winter is the Ideal Time for Laser Hair Removal – For a limited time receive 50% off!

November 9th, 2016 — 8:56pm

With winter fast approaching and with a long season ahead of us, hair removal might not be on the top of your mind. But while you’re bundling up and hiding under layers of blankets, you should be thinking about laser hair removal.

That’s right, winter is the ideal time for laser hair removal

While each situation varies, laser hair removal can requires several sessions to complete an area. What this means is that several appointments may be necessary to catch all the hairs.  This can take place over a couple months, so starting in the winter ensures that you will be ready by the next summer.

As the temperature heats up, our minds turn to bikini season and laser hair removal. Salons get booked up in no time with people hoping to get their laser hair removal done in short order meaning you might not get the appointment times you want. Lower appointment volume in […]

July 11th, 2013 — 4:15pm

A medical spa in Calgary is a place to relax, decompress and detach from the stresses and pressures of daily life. Visitors usually enjoy massages, hydrotherapy, skin treatments and other aesthetic solutions. A medical spa in Calgary can be a place of respite, but it also serves as a conduit to healing and medical treatment, as clinical professionals can determine the cause of pain and physical difficulty of their patients, and help find solutions.

History of the Medical Spa in Calgary

In the late 1980s, the idea of a medical spa came into the forefront with the advent of alpha hydroxyl acids and the original Collagen injectable. The idea of performing minor medical procedures in an environment most people used as a place of relaxation and rejuvenation was compelling.
