Are you out and about trying to put your ‘best face forward?’ After two years of keeping ourselves under wraps, it is definitely time to think about skincare again, especially with allergy season arriving early! We know sometimes it feels that it is hard to keep up, especially when every season brings with it new challenges.
3 Skincare Options for You
If you are checking into what are the best choices for you for a facial refresh, consider these three Vancouver-based skincare businesses. Each offers signature treatments from the ancient to the modern (think acupuncture to lasers) and an initial complimentary consult that will give you the answers to your most pressing skincare questions.
The Vanity Lab / Morpheus8
This non-surgical laser treatment uses some of the most advanced technology for the skin. It combines radio-frequency energy with micro-needling and fractional laser. This innovative combination works to stimulate collagen production which in turn tightens the skin and smoothes wrinkles. The result is a transformation that resembles a more youthful and glowing you. This treatment is also optimal to diminish the appearance of acne scarring and for those in need of sculpting in the mid to lower face. Two to three sessions within 4-8 week intervals are recommended to receive the best results.
Entrepreneurs Jessica and Natasha founded The Vanity Lab in Yaletown in 2013. Their idea was to create a new hub for beauty and self-care that combined the luxury feel of specialty doctors’ offices with the personal connection of a neighbourhood spa. Taking both a fun and light-hearted spirit, the two set out to offer the best cutting-edge treatments with undeniable results. The Lab offers a variety of anti-aging and rejuvenation treatments like injectables, lasers, skin resurfacing, and hair removal. Before booking in for an appointment, enjoy a complimentary assessment with a customized treatment plan that caters to your specific skin needs.

Skoah / Glycolic Peel
Skoah’s first location began here, in the heart of Yaletown in 2001. It started as a full-service spa that brought a fresh atmosphere and vibe with minimalist design details and gender-neutral decor. In 2003, the ‘facials only’ shop was born, alongside their skincare products which combine the best from science and nature.
