November 9th, 2016 — 8:56pm

With winter fast approaching and with a long season ahead of us, hair removal might not be on the top of your mind. But while you’re bundling up and hiding under layers of blankets, you should be thinking about laser hair removal.

Successful Restarting Starts With Decreasing Guilt

August 25th, 2015 — 10:20pm

After an absence from attending our office, many of you are holding back returning because of guilt or embarrassment that you have regained some weight.  At our clinic, we are quite aware of this and as a result, we continue to pass on many reassuring ideas that have helped our restart patients deal with much of their guilt and negative self talk- which in turn has helped steer them back on the right course. Many times I have said that I should have a blinking neon sign at our front office door that says: “LEAVE YOUR GUILT OUTSIDE AND COME ON IN.”

Following are key concepts that will help reassure you, decrease your guilt and get you back on the right track:

REMEMBER:

It takes a lot of courage to restart. It is human nature to feel guilty to think that we have let ourselves or others down. Therefore, taking this first step is a […]

Pamper Yourself This Winter With a LimeLight Facial Rejuvenation

February 5th, 2015 — 12:58pm

We all know that Alberta winters can be brutal on our skin. The wind, the snow, the dipping temperatures, and even those blessed chinooks can all contribute to skin surface imperfections. However, there is a way to get your skin looking young and fresh again. The perfect way to pamper yourself this winter!

One of our MediSpa offerings at Lefebre & Burke is The LimeLight Facial. This facial is a non-invasive approach to skin rejuvenation using Cutera’s LimeLight. The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging, sun damage, and let’s face it, winter damage.

The LimeLight Facial is very effective for improving uneven skin tone. It can treat individual pigment changes like brown age spots; it can also treat widespread blotchiness, freckles, skin redness and individual fine veins. Even more good news is that it only takes one to three treatments (on average) to be effective, and no […]
