When it comes to hair removal, there are numerous options available today from shaving to waxing. But in recent years, laser hair removal has become a one of the most popular options for removing unwanted hair.
“Understanding the way your skin looks and feels can really affect one’s self esteem,” said Tanya Lilley-Chan from Self Aesthetics. “ Self Aesthetics is excited to offer a range of services utilizing the gold standard in cosmetic lasers, The GentleMax Pro, and a globally recognized and loved professional skin care line, Environ.”
Tanya graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelors degree in Nursing. With this medical background and a passion for the cosmetic industry, Tanya decided to pursue a career in Medical Aesthetics. She recently opened Self Aesthetics at 2-455 Sterling Lyon Parkway (next to the new IHOP) and hasn’t looked back.
“Our goal at Self Aesthetics is to assist our clients elevate their self confidence and self worth by offering the very best aesthetic services on the market,” said Self Aesthetics owner, Tanya Lilley-Chan.
Tanya uses a range of high efficacy treatments including hair removal for all skin types, and treatment of benign pigmented and vascular lesions including leg veins. Self Aesthetics uses the exclusive GentleMax Pro system, a laser designed for high performance treatment capabilities in terms of speed, efficacy, ease-of-use, outstanding performance, safety and patient satisfaction.
Laser energy is delivered through a small handpiece. The laser delivers an intense beam of light, which is absorbed by the skin and converted to heat. The heat is then absorbed by the cells being targeted, while the surrounding tissue remains unaffected.
You may wonder if laser hair removal treatments are safe, and are there any side effects?
“Laser and light-based treatments have been safely used for many years for a variety of medical and cosmetic procedures,” said Tanya. “Your skin may be slightly red immediately following the procedure. This typically lasts from a few minutes to several hours after the procedure.”
“Our Laser Hair Removal treatments use a patented Dynamic Cooling Device, which prepares the skin for treatment by spraying the upper layer with a cooling burst of cryogen in adjustable durations—milliseconds before the laser pulse. DCD helps ensure that the treatments are as comfortable as they are effective.”
Self Aesthetics also carries Environ, the best topical vitamin treatment system in the world. Environ has been improving the health and vitality of the skin for over 20 years. Results are based on topical formulations with the highest quantity and quality of active ingredients; Innovative devices that improve topical penetration in-clinic and at home; And pioneering collagen induction therapies that stimulate the body’s natural regenerative system. All combine to produce a healthy, beautiful skin for a life time.
