Lavish Skin Care (908 17th Ave SW) gives 17th Ave a healthy, radiant glow. Celebrating their birthday in October, owner Alicia has proudly called the Ave home for 4 years. For gentle, calming care, Lavish Skin Care treats clients with hopes to refresh and rejuvenate them, for a recharge from Calgary’s hustle and bustle.
27 years of experience makes Alicia a skin care veteran. A long time aesthetician living in New York, she was exposed to the possibilities of entrepreneurship and realizing her life dreams. After running Metamorphosis Skin Care Clinic in Edmonton for 18 years, she moved to YYC to build her roots on 17th.
With a focus on facials and laser services, Lavish also provides a variety of other services for every spa goer. A best seller and fan favourite is the Yon-Ka skin care, satisfying every age group and skin condition. Yon-Ka is a complete cleansing range, which provides the first necessary steps to your skin’s good balance. Currently pick up a bottle of Yon-Ka lotion and receive 50% off your purchase of a cleanser, purifying and optimizing the effectiveness of your daily beauty regime.
Alicia’s Polish heritage gives her great appreciation for 17th ‘European feel’, which keeps her feeling youthful and current within the thriving and ever-changing Avenue scene. A favourite stop before work is Caffe Beano for “the best Americanos on the block” and the day finishes with bubbles at Parc Café and Brasserie on the patio. But she warns – don’t forget your anti-oxidant/anti-pollution sun cream for extra protection while you enjoy YYC’s sunny patio rays!
