Frequently Asked Questions

1. Is there a fee for the consultation? How long does a consultation usually take?
 No, the consultation is ABSOLUTELY FREE! We have several different services, so a consultation can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 1 hour and a half depending on what you are interested in doing. For example, a consultation for hair removal can take 15 minutes to 30 minutes and a consultation for our hair loss programs can take up to 1 and a half hours. However, our consultations can take longer than expected depending on how many questions and concerns you have. Call (416) 604 2223 for any further information!
2. Do your Laser Hair Removal procedures hurt?
 The feeling of laser hair removal is like a rubber band snapping against the skin continuously. However, we try to make our treatments as comfortable as possible for all of our clients to ensure that the procedure is as least painful as possible. Our CERTIFIED TECHNICIANS work at any pace to make you feel more relaxed while becoming hair-free! 
3. How many treatments would I need for hair removal?
 The number of treatments depends on an individual’s hair growth, density and biology. It is very difficult for us to give you an accurate number without an actually assessment. However, on average, for the body you may need anywhere from 6 to 12 treatments on minimum and for the face, because it is a very hormonal area, an average of 10 treatments are required on minimum. 
4. What is the space in between treatments?
The face is done every 4 weeks and the body is done every 6 weeks. 
5. Is there any downtime after your skin rejuvenation treatments? (Microdermabrasion, Photo Rejuvenation, Acne Laser, Chemical Peels)
 Absolutely not! Our skin rejuvenation treatments, especially microdermabrasion and photo rejuvenation leave your complexion looking bright and youthful. You can even come in during your lunch break, have your treatment done and go back to work with a fresh glow. 
6. What methods of payment do you accept?
We accept cash, certified cheque, Visa, Mastercard and American Express.
7. What is your cancellation policy?
 Your appointment is a reserved spot for you. If you cannot make it, we do charge a minimum of $15 to $65 depending on how long you are booked in for. 
8. What are your hours of operation?
 Our hours of operation are:

Monday-Friday: 10am to 7pm

Saturdays: 11am to 3pm

Our location in the Bramalea City Center is open even longer for individuals with a busy schedule:

Monday-Friday 10am to 9pm

Saturdays: 9:30am to 9pm

9. Are your procedures performed by Doctors and/or Nurses?
 Our injectables and surgical procedures are performed strictly by Nurses and/or Doctors. However, our laser procedures are done by our certified and highly trained technicians. We work only with highly skilled and knowledgeable individuals to ensure that our clients are in safe hands. 
10. Why are your prices not on your website?
 Every individual responds differently to our treatments, which is why is it very difficult for us to give you any sort of fee over the phone or on our website. For example, for laser hair removal, one client could be 5’3 and the other could be 5’10. We would not charge the same fee due to the difference in height. This is why we offer a FREE CONSULTATION to make sure we can give you an accurate fee breakdown depending on your needs. There are no obligations to sign up immediately after your consultation, we are just here to provide you with the right knowledge. 
11. What is the downtime after having a surgical procedure done?
 The downtime for any surgical procedure varies. All concerns regarding our plastic surgery procedures can be discussed with a physician only during the time of your consultation. 
12. What is Carboxy Therapy?
 Carboxytherapy is the administration of carbon dioxide [CO2] gas for therapeutic purposes. Carbon Dioxide is the gas that gives carbonated beverages their “fizz.” It should not be confused with Carbon Monoxide gas, which is a by-product of oil combustion that can be deadly. 
13. How does Carboxy Therapy work in general?
Carboxy therapy takes advantage of a physiological principle known as oxygen off-loading. Carbon dioxide is naturally present in our bodies at all times and it is essential to the life processes of both animals and plants. With every breath, we inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. Plants absorb the carbon dioxide that we exhale and release oxygen back into the atmosphere. There are many types of cells that make up the human body—heart cells, brain cells, skin cells… even though they may have very different jobs to perform, all cells take up the oxygen that we breathe in and burn it to make energy to do their job, then give off carbon dioxide as a waste product. Have you ever noticed that if the blood supply is cut off to your hand that it will turn a distinctive shade of violet? What you are actually seeing is the accumulation of deoxygenated blood. Here is why. With each inhalation we breathe in oxygen to our lungs. This oxygen is picked up by the red blood cells in the tiny blood vessels of the lungs. Each red blood cell has holding space for precisely four molecules of oxygen. The oxygen-laden red blood cells are carried from the lungs via tiny blood vessels that lead to the heart. The heart beats, forcing the blood into the arteries so that the red blood cells can carry their oxygen-rich cargo to the hard working cells of the body. When the red blood cells encounter an area that has a high level of carbon dioxide, the waste product of cellular metabolism, the red blood cells become distorted, the oxygen is released to the needy tissues and the carbon dioxide is picked up by the now empty red blood cells [think of a subway train pulling into the station– the doors open, the passengers who have reached their destination get off the train, and the passengers who need to be transported elsewhere get on the train—all in a highly organized manner]. The carbon dioxide is carried back to the lungs, we exhale to get rid of the carbon dioxide, we inhale more oxygen, and the entire process begins again. So, how does carboxytherapy work? Dark under-eye circles, cellulite, and scars are believed to caused, at least in part, due to poor blood-flow to the region. By injecting a small amount of carbon dioxide gas into the area, we are “tricking” the body into increasing the oxygen flow to the area by compelling the red blood cells to pick up all of the excess CO2that we injected so that it can be carried back to the lungs for elimination from the body with the next exhalation.
