Owner Mia Liefso celebrates 10 years since opening the Bradford Skin Clinic, and she’s busier than ever.
The med spa offers a variety of services including laser hair removal, medical grade facial peels, micro-needling, skin tag removals, botox, injectable fillers, photo rejuvenation, and acne treatments.
“We specialize in acne for not only teens but adults too,” explains Liefso.
Since reopening the clinic after being closed due to COVID-19, the clinic has been busy, averaging 25 new patients a week.
“We’re grateful for all the referrals we receive on Google,” shares Liefso, adding that the clinic and med spa has up to 175 reviews with a 4.9 star rating. “Reviews happen from consistency.”.
The clinic shares rental space and utilities with their neighbours, The Pink Closet fashion boutique, allowing both businesses to keep building operating costs low. Their landlord also helped them with rent subsidy during the pandemic.
“We’re really happy that everyone is coming back [despite the pandemic],” expresses Liefso. “We’re super busy.”
The clinic can accommodate one to two clients at a time, and a waiver form must be signed upon entry with a mandatory mask policy (with exception to facial treatment procedures).
“We used to have peel parties - mother-daughter mask treatments - but not anymore,” laments Liefso. “We’re usually a pretty jovial place, but lately it’s been more serious.”
Liefso attended The Champlain Institute in Toronto and studied physics and aesthetics and skin therapy in Ottawa. She has been practicing medical aesthetics for 14 years.
“All our products are medical grade,” explains Liefso, using new laser technology.
The med spa will be celebrating its 10th year anniversary this October, and plans to have a socially-distanced celebration.
