Steps away from the hustle and bustle of the South Granville shopping district, nestled away off the main street is the freshly renovated Pacific Derm clinic.
BLUSHVancouver was invited to preview the lush new interiors and observe up close makes Pacific Derm one of Vancouver’s leading medical-based cosmetic skin care clinics.
Entering the clinic, a gleaming interior is revealed with strong visual impact with its clean and chic space-age styling. However, it is the disarmingly lovely staff that keep the feel in the space warm and inviting. Upon arrival, guests are shown to the luxurious lounge area to wait and fill out the obligatory paperwork. The clinic occupies two floors and has two reception desks that help guide you to one of the eleven cosmetic treatment rooms or five medical treatment rooms.
Like all good things, Pacific Derm is much more than its sleek façade. The team led by Dr. Jason Rivers, an acclaimed and highly respected dermatologist, has spent years cultivating a reputation as Vancouver’s foremost medical-based cosmetic skin care clinic. What sets Pacific Derm apart is its integrated expertise in both medical and cosmetic dermatology, offering a wide range of procedures using the latest equipment, techniques, and products. The location also has an in-house research unit to further the goal of bringing the newest innovative treatments and technologies to their patients.
Pacific Derm’s approach emphasizes minimally invasive techniques for rejuvenation and works to implement preventative strategies to maintain healthy, younger-looking skin with its clients.
If you are looking for skin rejuvenation with no downtime, no discomfort and in less than 30 minutes you may want to consider Laser Genesis. This innovative and non-invasive procedure improves the appearance of early ageing signs (such as fine lines) without unwanted side effects such as redness, puffy or peeling skin.
Laser Genesis or “light facials” work without the deep resurfacing caused by high energy pulsed CO2 and Erbium YAG lasers. Treatments are performed in a comfortable manner without the need for topical anaesthetics.
Laser Genesis has the ability to improve, sun damage, fine lines, irregular pigmentation and the appearance of large pores as well as many other skin imperfections.
Another great non-invasive treatment offered is CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, safe, and effective way to reduce areas of unwanted fat. The body contouring procedure targets localized pockets of stubborn fat resistant to diet and exercise efforts.
This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA and Health Canada-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate fat. The phrase “freeze your fat away” is an accurate description of how the CoolSculpting treatment works: The technology utilizes a precisely controlled cooling process that targets the fat cells underneath the skin. When the treated fat cells are crystallized or frozen, they then die. Your body will naturally process the fat and remove the dead cells, what is left is a reduction in the area treated.
CoolSculpting has been clinically proven to reduce abdominal fat, waistline fat, double chin, inner and outer thigh fat, and underarm bulge.
The CoolSculpting session can be performed while you read, rest, watch a video, or even work – although we suggest taking the opportunity to relax! After your procedure, you can return to your normal activities with no downtime or any notable side effects.
With a wealth of product knowledge and experience, and with a commitment to help their clients choose the procedure that best suits their skin type, lifestyle and other factors, Pacific Derm is a great way to find your feet in the overwhelming world of cosmetic skin care.
