How to Find a Good Medical Spa in Calgary

May 7th, 2013 — 8:07pm

We always stress the importance of finding a high quality medical spa. Finding a reputable medical spa, and a location with staff you can trust is of the utmost importance.

The single largest advantage a medical spa has is the knowledge of the staff. Doctors who can listen to your needs and help identify the right treatment are an essential first step.  Although essentially all procedures available at a medical spa are extremely safe and unlikely to cause injury, this always assumes well-trained staff members are using the device correctly over the course of your treatment.

This article will provide an overview of things to consider when seeking out a medical spa in Calgary. We’ll be looking at three main areas that can be used to identify reputable medical spas: who owns or operates the spa, what sort of training does the staff receive, and is their equipment safe and modern? We’ll also identify some […]

The Importance of a Doctor Operated Medical Spa

April 3rd, 2013 — 6:03pm

If you’re interested in weight loss or dermatological treatments normally available at medical spas you’ve probably started searching around online and found a whole array of different information about these techniques. While everyone agrees that all treatments offered at a medical spa are fundamentally safe, they are still very real procedures and should be undertaken after taking the time to educate yourself, be evaluated by an educated authority, and consider the treatment options.

If you’ve long been wondering what to do with lax skin around the face, neck, arms, or stomach you may have considered skin tightening treatments available at medical spas. These procedures have amazing potential to tighten skin that’s lost its elasticity, but they require a professional hand that can only be found in a medical spa. One of the most famous methods available is Titan Skin Tightening, a light-based treatment available in medical spas.

Introducing the new Calgary Zerona Laser on

 

March 2nd, 2012 marks the 24th anniversary of the official opening of the LEFEBRE WEIGHT LOSS CLINIC in Calgary. We opened on Wednesday, March 2nd, 1988, three days after the Calgary Winter Olympics closed.

I’ve said many times over the years that the torch went out on the Calgary Olympics on Sunday and the Lefebre Weight Loss Clinic lights went on 3 days later!
