DR. KAREN MCGEE and DR. ALANNA RINAS

Dr. Karen McGee’s mission is to empower women to unveil their best selves and live their lives filled with balance, beauty and vibrant health. Dr. McGee is a leading women’s healthcare practitioner in BC. She has extensively researched the safety of hormones and treatments for hormone imbalances. She uses a variety of bio-identical hormones and natural treatments for hormone imbalances such as PMS, perimenopause, menopause and PCO. Dr. McGee encourages healthy aging using bio-identical hormones, natural skincare, supplements and esthetic injections. She focuses on healthy weight loss and weight maintenance, and uses research-based tools to determine dietary needs, hormones, behaviour modification and prescriptions if necessary, to help you reach your weight loss goals.

Hailing from just outside of Edmonton, Alberta, Dr. Alanna Rinas received her Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences from the University of Alberta before moving to Vancouver to attend the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine, where she received her Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine diploma. She has since completed additional training in esthetic medicine including neuromodulator (Botox), facial fillers, and cosmetic PRP. Dr. Rinas believes that esthetic medicine is for anyone that feels their outer appearance doesn’t reflect the vibrancy that they feel inside. She is passionate about creating natural, subtle looks to maintain one’s appearance and age gracefully. As a naturopathic doctor, she understands that a good skin care routine starts from the inside and counsels patients on ways to maintain their results long-term.

Moving Beyond the Upper Face – Unique Uses of Neuromodulators and Applications of PRP

When addressing the aging face, the sole focus must not only be on eliminating lines and wrinkles, but also addressing the quality and integrity of the skin. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a treatment growing in popularity that stimulates the body’s own natural ability to heal and produce collagen. Rich in growth factors, PRP has a wide range of indications including hair growth, firming skin, improving skin quality, and enhancing the effects of other cosmetic treatments.

As one of our most requested treatments, neuromodulators have been used safely and with a high degree of patient satisfaction for more than 30 years. With the indications for neuromodulator continuing to expand, it is no longer a treatment reserved for just forehead and frown lines, but emerging as an injectable procedure for the whole face. Join us for a discussion around novel uses of neuromodulators including applications for facial reshaping, sweating, headaches, treating the chin, neck, and more.

The Role of Facial Fillers and Hormone Replacement in Healthy Aging

Skin health and beauty is one of the principal factors representing overall well-being and the perception of health in humans. Healthy aging requires a multi-modal approach that addresses not only the visible signs of aging, but underlying factors as well. Learn about the physiology and anatomy of how and why we age, including how your hormones impact appearance, and the supportive role of facial fillers in the aging process. Much more than lips and cheeks, advanced placement of fillers can be used to address many hallmarks of aging including hallowing temples, jowls, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and more.

This workshop includes a live mini-demonstration.

The benefits of Cupping massage

Cupping is technique that has been adapted into massage.  Traditional cupping involves glass cups where a flame is introduced and a suction is created.   Modern cupping that massage therapists use involves silicone cups.  These cups can be easily manipulated along the body.  There are many benefits to this style of massage.  For one, it allow for deeper manipulation of the tissues with minimal effort.    The best news:  it is not a reserved act.  So massage therapists can add it to their regular back massage.  Estheticians can incorporate it in their facials. 

You can also use it for self-care.  Learn to treat common problems yourself with the cupping method.
