No Downtime Treatments at ReNue

  Christmas is coming and it seems to me the parties start earlier each year.  I think Black Friday now is the official kick off to the Christmas holiday season.  Boy, it didn’t take long for that to take hold in Canada.  We had a very successful Black Friday sale at all three of our locations, so thank you to all of you that took advantage of some rare discounts. At ReNue during our free consultations we always spend time discussing the possibility of downtime(recovery time) associated with some treatments.  By downtime we mean the potential for extensive redness, peeling, … Continue Reading

How to Get Safe and Effective Laser Hair Removal

Red blood vessels creeping across the nose or chin and red spots across the cheeks and forehead are signs of thinning skin and loss of collagen.  They can also … Continue Reading
