Sara Happ takes lips seriously! Their products exfoliate, hydrate and heal. Period.
All products focus on solving the ten most common lip problems: dry lips, chapped lips, lip lines, lip wrinkles, flaky lips, thin lips. These products help heal, moisturize, hydrate, plump and prime.
“I first made the lip scrub in my kitchen, because there simply were no scrubs for my lips. I use it every day. No Joke. I’ll leave the house in yoga clothes and messy bun but my lips are always scrubbed.”
– Sara Happ, The Lip Expert
Exfoliation is absolutely the key to glowing skin. That ‘lit from within’ look begins with a clean, smooth foundation. Once the skin is free of the dead cells that dull its appearance and block absorption, the product can sink in and do its job. When you’re working with new skin, your entire experience changes. You glow.
We’ve taken out dehydrating ingredients found in most products, and replaced them with polymers and essential oils that truly hydrate. Sara Happ believes the world doesn’t need another lip balm, it needs the perfect one.
Sara Happ creates, she doesn’t follow. She constantly formulates new lip products that don’t exist. Her charge to their chemist is to find the most innovative ingredients and break all the rules. And, that’s just one of the reasons why at Avenue Med Spa, we love, love, love her products!
Get Naked Soaps
Michelle Gamelin created Get Naked Soaps shortly after the birth of her daughter when she noticed various skin issues on her daughter. After trying countless store-bought products with no relief, Michelle decided to take it upon herself to learn about the process of natural soap making. The soap ‘Plain Jane’ was born and her daughter’s skin issues subsided.
Michelle immediately fell in love with her newfound passion and never looked back. From word of mouth and tradeshow sales, the Get Naked Soap brand became a household name through the Greater Toronto Area.
48 hours after your laser hair removal treatment we recommend that you start exfoliating. Use a washcloth, shower sponge, a loofah or one of these exfoliating bars of soap on your body or a fine exfoliation scrub on your face. Do this for the next two to three weeks as you see the hair and follicles cycle to the skin’s surface.
At Avenue MedSpa in Whitby, we carry a wide selection of Get Naked Soaps Exfoliation Soaps. These are great for removing dead skin cells. The organic wholesome ingredients then nourish the fresh skin underneath. The result glowing, smooth skin.
Get Naked Soaps are made with high-quality organic ingredients. All are handcrafted in small batches in Ontario, Canada. There may be a slight variation in colour and cut, as they are individually processed by hand and no two bars are ever identical.
Use A Soap Dish
In order to extend the life of your bar as long as possible, it is highly recommended to keep your bar dry in between uses. A well-draining soap dish works best. We sell these, too!
Latisse Lashes Grow, Thicker, Longer.
Latisse is the first and only prescription eyelash growth product approved in Canada to grow natural eyelashes longer, thicker and darker. It is only available for purchase at medical aesthetics clinics associated with a physician.
In a study conducted by Allergan, the manufacturers of Latisse, participants experienced these results after 16 weeks:
Eyelash length increased by 25 percent
Thickness and fullness increased by 106 percent
Eyelash darkness increased by 18 percent
How Does It Work?
The active ingredient in Latisse is bimatoprost, which affects the growth phase of the eyelash hair cycle. This leads to increased eyelash length, thickness and darkness.
When Will I See Results?
Patients who use Latisse typically start to see longer lashes in about eight weeks, with full effects at 16 weeks.
How Do I Apply It?
One drop of Latisse is applied once-daily to the base of the upper eyelid (like you would apply eyeliner) with a single-use-per-eye disposable applicator brush. It is important to apply Latisse onto clean, dry skin.
Biophora Medically Advanced Skin Care
When it comes to skincare products, there is nothing better than Biophora.
Biophora’s technically advanced formulations address difficult skin conditions including free radical damage, dull, aged appearance and fine lines, as well as breakouts, blackheads, brown spots, enlarged pores, flakiness and dryness.
The key to Biophora’s effectiveness is in its high potency natural ingredients, which are paired to improve all skin types and conditions. Alpha Hydroxy and Beta Hydroxy Acids, L-Ascorbic Acid, antioxidants, vitamins and botanicals, Hyaluronic Acid and peptides, lightening agents and sun protection provide the cleansing, exfoliation, correction, hydration and protection steps required to give people a glowing, healthy-looking complexion.
Element Exposed / Normal Aging
The typical characteristics that identify this skin type are damage caused by over-exposure to the sun, harsh weather, pollutants, smoking, dehydration and age related conditions.An effective range of home care products is designed to exfoliate dead skin cells, minimize hyperpigmentation, plump fine lines, improve hydration, and revitalize a dull or tired appearance that often accompanies this skin type. Most patients will fall into this category.
Acne / Oily Skin
Acne or oily skin is characterized by the presence of pustules or pimples, large pores, blackheads, whiteheads or frequent breakouts and shiny appearance of the skin. Biophora home care products are designed to reduce bacteria buildup and loosen debris that clogs the pores. The goal is to increase cellular turnover resulting in normally functioning pores, which are able to release the flow of oil. Active ingredients in the Acne / Oily product line calm most acne conditions, leaving the skin smoother and more consistently blemish free.
Sensitive / Dry Skin
A smaller percentage of the population will experience particularly sensitive or dry skin. This category may include the lighter skin tones on the Fitzpatrick Scale, which are more sensitive to the sun, chemicals, fragrances, dyes, foods, rough fabrics, etc. Conditions such as Eczema, Psoriasis and Rosacea would also be included in this category. Biophora products for sensitive skin will help heal and normalize the skin perhaps even gradually allowing for the use of more progressive treatments and products.
