A Courtenay skin care business is under new ownership with added services for women and men in the Comox Valley.
“We are committed to listening to our client’s concerns and dedicated to working together to achieve realistic and satisfying cosmetic results,” says Candyce Bell, manager at Luxe Aesthetic Medicine.
As a medical aesthetics nurse and clinical nurse educator, Bell brings a wealth of experience and looks forward to sharing her knowledge and expertise.
She is an approved clinical educator for Allergan — the maker of Botox and Juvederm — and is a full-time injector at Luxe. She is also the lead clinical nurse educator for a top laser company in Canada.
Familiar faces include Dawn Martynyk, a laser technician who has spent more than 15 years in hospitals and private clinics before joining the Luxe treatment team. She is also a trained skin care consultant who can provide detailed information on cosmeceutical lines. Martynyk provides laser hair removal, laser skin rejuvenation, fungal nail, Venus Freeze and Hydrafacial treatments.
“We’ve expanded our service offerings to give you more options,” including VI Peel and illumiWave Laser Hair Rejuvenation, acne scar laser treatments and laser lipo,” Martynyk said.
VI Peel is a chemical peel that contains a blend of ingredients suitable for all skin types. It provides results with virtually no pain, no prep and little to no downtime. Rather than needing six chemical peels of a lower grade, patrons only need one to three, depending on goals of treatment. It improves tone, texture and hyperpigmentation including melasma; softens lines and wrinkles, clears acne, reduces scars and stimulates production of collagen for firmer skin.
Luxe is located at Orchard Gate, 105-501 Fourth St. in Courtenay.
There is an open house Wednesday, Oct. 22 from 4-8 p.m.
