The Beauty of Medical Esthetics at Spa Utopia

Did you know that Medi-Spa treatments are among the many popular beauty-enhancing services available from Spa Utopia?

Our Medical Esthetics Photo Therapy treatments include Photo Rejuvenation, Skin Tightening and Laser Hair Removal. All treatments are administered by our highly skilled Medical Skin Care Therapists, who have received comprehensive training from medical practitioners for these advanced technologies. In addition, each has successfully completed our extensive in-house training requirements and is committed to ensuring a successful and safe outcome for your procedure/s.

For all three therapies (which are available to men and women), you will be required to have a prior consultation with a Spa Utopia Medical Skin Care Therapist. The nominal fee for this consultation is applied to your subsequent treatment/s.

Photo Rejuvenation

Photo Rejuvenation or Broad Band Light™ Therapy (BBL) allows the Medical Skin Care Therapist to precisely treat fine wrinkles, age and sun spots, small facial veins (capillaries), and rosacea.

During your initial consultation, you will receive an indepth analysis of your skin and may also have a photograph taken with a UV camera. This highly specialized photography provides details of damage to the skin caused by the sun, and which may not be visible to the naked eye. Your treatment will be tailored to suit your skin's condition and your desired results.

BBL therapy delivers pulsed light onto the skin which gently heats it. The heat is absorbed by the targeted cells, encouraging collagen production and destroying the melanin that causes hyperpigmentation and age spots. Small capillaries are gently, but effectively eliminated. The flushing associated with rosacea is also effectively reduced through BBL treatment. These targeted treatments are achieved through the use of different filters.

BBL treatment is available at our Langley and North Vancouver locations.

Skin Tightening

Now you can have visibly smoother, tauter skin, without the discomfort or downtime of surgery. Skin-Tyte™ is an advanced, light-based system that specifically targets the cells of the dermis, and recaptures the firmness associated with youthful skin.

Fast and gentle, Skin Tyte™ delivers light energy (heat) to the dermis through a specific filter while keeping the surface of the skin cool. The energy absorbed by the targeted area stimulates your skin to increase collagen production. The collagen fibers continue to strengthen after your treatment and you will see improved results over the months ahead.

Skin Tightening is available at both our Langley and North Vancouver locations.

Laser Hair Removal

Imagine never having to shave, wax, tweeze, or apply messy creams again! If you want a smooth, sleek, hair-free body, all of the time, then laser hair removal may be the perfect option for you.

Our LightSheer™ diode laser system is the recognized gold standard in laser hair removal. This exciting technology offers a long-lasting solution to unwanted hair on the face, back, legs, bikini line or any other body area. The LightSheer™ is non-invasive, gentle on sensitive areas like the lip and underarms, and effectively treats unwanted hair on all skin types, including ethnic and dark complexions.

The LightSheer™ works by sending pulses of light to the hair follicles, where natural pigments absorb the light. This destroys the existing hair and inhibits regrowth. At the same time, the surface of your skin is kept cool and comfortable. Most people achieve permanent hair reduction and clinical studies show that if some hairs do return, they are typically lighter and less dense than prior to laser treatment. LightSheer™ treatments are tolerated very well, and you can generally return to work and resume all regular activities immediately.

Laser Hair Removal is available at our Langley and North Vancouver location.

A word about photo aging...

A Photo Rejuvenation or Skin Tightening treatment at Spa Utopia will help restore your skin to a more youthful appearance, and encourage fresh collagen production. However, the best way to "treat" skin aging is to prevent it in the first place! A good sun protection program, strictly adhered to, will prevent sun damage (photo aging) such as wrinkling and age spots—and, if you have had a photo therapy treatment, will ensure the results last as long as possible).

Spa Utopia carries some of the most advanced sun protection products available—and every one of them is a pleasure to use, unlike many sun-protection creams and lotions. If you are going on a sunny vacation, or spend a lot of time outdoors, you may wish to invest in Pro-Derm™ sunscreen with an SPF of 60. This highly specialized formulation is moisturizing, non-greasy, and contains no unpleasant chemicals. (Many savvy women use this formula daily on their hands, to prevent tell-tale signs of aging such as brown spots.)

For daily prevention of sun damage, you may also want to use Jane Iredale mineral makeup with an SPF of 20—a popular choice among women who want to protect their skin against sun damage while avoiding the chemicals often present in sunscreens.

For more information on Medical Esthetic treatments at Spa Utopia, please contact our Langley location at  604-539-8772 or North Vancouver location at 604-980-3977 for information and booking for any of the three treatments. Please remember that prior to any treatment, you will be asked to book a consultation with a Medical Skin Care Therapist.
