A woman is relaxing and happy with her treatment results

With summer around the corner, now is the best time to get your glow on at one of our Vancouver-area medi-spa locations. Starting treatments in the spring will give you plenty of time to make sure you look and feel your best for pool parties, beach days, Canada Day celebrations, and more.

If you want to achieve your best body by summer, consider these helpful treatments.

CoolSculpting®

For tackling exercise-and-diet-resistant fat areas ahead of swimsuit season, try CoolSculpting. This nonsurgical body contouring procedure works by safely freezing and destroying fat cells, which are then naturally metabolized by the body for a slimming effect in the targeted areas.

You’ll see the best results if you are within 10 to 15 pounds of your ideal body weight and are looking to spot-treat frustrating bulges rather than trying to achieve total body weight loss. Results typically develop within 2 to 4 months, so starting in the spring is ideal.

Laser Hair Removal

To reduce unwanted body hair, you may consider laser hair removal, which can greatly cut down on time spent shaving, waxing, and tweezing. During these treatments, lasers damage specific hair follicles to prevent future growth on a long-lasting basis. We offer several variations, including:

For the best results, we recommend a series of several sessions spaced a few weeks apart.

Spider Vein Treatment

Spider veins are another common source of insecurity in the summer months. These clusters of dark veins occur on the legs and face and can keep men and women from confidently enjoying many warm weather activities.  For treating unwanted spider veins, we recommend laser treatments with Cutera CoolGlide. This device delivers targeted pulses of laser energy that reduce—or even eliminate—spider veins.

Injectables

To look youthful and refreshed in all your vacation photos, you may consider various injectables. A few of the most popular ones include:

While these treatments are popular for summer prep, they’re not the only options available. Our clinics provide a wide variety of noninvasive approaches designed to help you reveal your best self.

Spring Packages for beautiful lips and smooth, hairless skin

Afterglow Medi-Spa Offers two Spring Packages for beautiful lips and smooth, hairless skin

Michelle2Beautiful Lips Package: It’s kissing time again! With all the new spring lip colours on drugstore shelves, many of us are wondering how we can make our lips look plumper and more youthful.

Women generally seek lip enhancement for one of two reasons: They were born with “thin” lips, and would prefer a fuller, more plump appearance, or they are noticing that their lips are becoming flatter and less “padded” due to aging. Either way, a treatment at Afterglow can restore or create natural-looking fullness in the lips, in a mere half hour or so.

To help your lips look their very best, Afterglow is offering a special lip enhancement with safe and pain-free dermal fillers that have a completely natural feel and will not “drift” inside the lips.

LegsLaser Hair-removal Package: If facial or body hair is getting the better of you and you are tired of reaching for your razor, tweezers, depilatory, or waxing kit, a Laser Hair Removal treatment at Afterglow could well be the answer…

Women frequently have unwanted hair on the upper lip or eyebrow area, in the bikini zone, under the arms and on the legs, while men often wish to rid themselves of excessive hair on the back, chest, between the eyebrows or on other parts of the face.

The Sciton BBL (Broadband Light) laser offers a safe, effective and permanent alternative to shaving, tweezing and waxing, that you are sure to love.

Please call Afterglow at 604-980-3993 or email us now for more details.
