On Trend: These B.C. companies promise non-surgical cosmetic treatments

Offerings include facials, photorejuvenation and more

■ 8 West Cosmetic Surgery and Skin Clinic

Vancouver-based 8 West Cosmetic Surgery and Skin Clinic offers what it colloquially dubs a “non- surgical facelift.” Practitioners claim that Emface stimulates collagen and tightens skin using focused, high- intensity electromagnetic radiation and radiofrequency energy. (8 West declined to share pricing; spidey senses not included.)

■ Belladerm Laser & Medspa and Philosophy MD

No storage space required for this photo: intense pulsed light (IPL) photorejuvenation aims to lessen skin concerns like dark spots, fine lines and rosacea. Both Belladerm Laser & Medspa in Kelowna and Philosophy MD in Victoria offer up this service—the former starts at $199 and the latter at $399.

■ Theory + Essence and Raw Canvas Skin Bar

North Vancouver’s Theory + Essence and Fort Langley-based Raw Canvas Skin Bar are both hyping up the HydraFacial, a non-irritating treatment that uses patented tech to cleanse, exfoliate, extract and hydrate. Treatments start at $350 at T+E and at $299 at Raw Canvas.
