Caress Electrolysis: Flawless skin for the Fall

At Caress ElectrolysisCooler weather is the ideal time to get rid of unwanted facial and body hair or unsightly skin anomalies.

“At Caress, we treat every client, in a supportive non-judgemental manner.  We provide complete confidentiality and treat each client with courtesy, compassion, respect and privacy in a calming atmosphere while using state of the art technology and the newest procedures available,” says owner Kathryn Hay.

There are many misconceptions about electrolysis, but two are most common.  The first is that electrolysis is expensive and the second is that it’s painful. Electrolysis is in fact reasonably priced as it’s a lifetime investment as electrolysis is still the only permanent method of hair removal. Though there is a sensation to electrolysis, as there is with waxing and laser, most clients are pleasantly surprised how comfortable electrolysis is and many have said that they would have started electrolysis sooner had they known that.

Call to book your complimentary consultation and sample treatment, an electrologist will explain the procedure, provide a sample treatment so you can see for yourself how it feels and suggest a treatment plan to work within your budget and schedule.  Then as an informed consumer you will have all the information you need to decide whether to proceed with treatments.

At a very young age Kathryn, had unwanted hair issue that impacted on her self-esteem, but she decided early in life to do something about it. “After trying a variety of temporary methods of hair removal I decided to give electrolysis a try.   Overjoyed with the results of electrolysis, I not only got rid of my unwanted hair permanently, I also had more confidence. I was so delighted by the results that I decided to pursue a career in electrolysis and I’m so glad I did. I love preforming electrolysis, everyday a client will mention how happy they are that they started electrolysis. I am so fortunate that I have found a career I love and one that is so rewarding.”

The caring professionals at Caress Electrolysis also offer Thermocoagulation, a process that will improve your skin’s appearance by reducing or eliminating unwanted skin anomalies.  And if you have plans to travel to warm climate this winter, trust Caress Electrolysis to have you looking flawless for your southern vacation. But don’t wait until just before you depart, start now!  Thermocoagulation can eliminate skin tags, cherry angiomas, milia, angiokeratomas, pigmented spots, keratoses and visible facial capillaries. Caress offers a complimentary consultation where they explain the procedure, and examine your anomalies to determine if they are treatable. Most skin anomalies can be treated in one treatment.

If you are tired of feeling insecure and embarrassed by unwanted hair or skin anomalies, then Caress is the place to go. With more than 40 years in business, convenient hours, eight certified electrologists, state of art equipment, and a free consultation Caress guarantees you professional and friendly service.  For electrolysis to be successful you must have a qualified, conscientious electrologist, and at Caress “attention to detail” is our motto.

Michelle, a satisfied client writes-

“As a first-time user of electrolysis services and as a health care professional, I did a fair bit of research before deciding on Caress. The trial treatment is a fabulous opportunity to experience the process prior to making such an important commitment. The attention to sterile technique builds enormous confidence. Finally, the ambience is gentle and soothing, as are the technicians. I would recommend that potential clients do their research, look around, and come running to Caress!”

Freedom Boat Club Ottawa

Freedom Boat Club is now in Ottawa!

Freedom Boat Club Ottawa is now open at Hurst Marina in Manotick.  Our fleet of boats range in length from 19 to 24 feet and include a pontoon, bow rider, deck boat, and a fish & ski boat.

Boating Made Simple:

Your experience begins when you arrive at the marina and our friendly dock staff is there to assist you with getting your things on your boat, which is clean, fueled, and ready for you to enjoy the day.  After a quick check out process, you are off, exploring the Rideau River or hitting your favorite swimming, fishing, or dining spots. When you return, you’ll complete the check in and be on your way to enjoy the rest of the day while we take care of the boat.  Boating has never been easier, or more fun!

Here’s how the Club Works:  

We buy and maintain a fleet of boats, members join our club and get free unlimited training.  Members then begin reserving boats by using our app or online.  In addition to unlimited access at our local club, members get reciprocal access to over 185+ other locations in the United States, Canada, and Europe!  With a strong beginning in Sarasota, Florida, we continue to serve everyone globally.

If you are a snowbird and head to Florida during the winter, there are more than 60 FBC clubs for you to make reservations and enjoy the Florida coastal waters.  

Freedom Boat Club is North Americas oldest and largest Boat Club.  Freedom Boat Club Ottawa provides an affordable option to boat ownership and delivers a maintenance-free recreational boating experience for its members.  

The boat is waiting. Why are you?
