Your Skin Experts

Lee-Ann van As, Co-Owner

Read Bio

Lee-Ann’s passion for skin care is lifelong beginning with her mother who instilled values of a healthy lifestyle and pride in natural beauty. This belief and Lee-Ann’s love of sharing knowledge led her to center a practice on helping others to enhance their own unique beauty and have the confidence this brings. Using her expertise to create individualized skincare plans, foster trust and build relationships, she set a goal "to make every client a client for life."

Lee-Ann received advanced training in Medical Aesthetics in 2008. She is a member of the American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery, Beauty Council of Western Canada and International Spa Industry Association. She has traveled to Kansas City, MO to study with Matt Taranto, one of North America's leading clinical trainers, preceptored with Dr. Patrick Bitter, board certified dermatologist, San Francisco, CA and has spent time in Irvine, CA learning about the advances of ZO Skin Health by Dr Zein Obagi. This has enabled Lee-Ann to stay in the forefront and specialize in a wide range of lasers and light-based devices, medical-grade skincare lines and cutting-edge skincare technologies.

Lee-Ann lives in Lynn Valley and when not in the clinic, she is walking nearby trails, cycling the Seymour Demonstration forest or Okanagan Valley, spending time with her husband and two grown children or honing skills on her latest masterpiece as an (amateur) artist!

Lola Gillies, Co-Owner

Read Bio

Lola’s skin care journey started when she found a suspicious mole that turned out to be cancerous. Realizing how dangerous and damaging the sun was to our skin persuaded her to learn everything she could to protect and revitalize her skin. That journey led her to the Accredited Diploma Program at All Body Laser Training Institute where she developed her skills as an advanced medical esthetician, clinical skin care expert, and cosmetic laser technician. Lola’s training and hands on experience has provided her the tools to guide her clients through results based treatments and optimal skin health.

When Lola is not working, she is often found running the trails with her dog on the North Shore, or motoring her four kids around to their many activities. Her husband is her biggest cheerleader and enjoys taking her out on a Friday night. Motivated by happy clients and a balanced lifestyle that keeps her grounded, are the keys to Lola’s success.

What Our Clients Say

To say that LeeAnn has changed my life may seem like an exaggeration. But my experience with her and the Clinic has been nothing short of exactly that: Life Changing. I have struggled with Malasma for many years to the point where I was so self continue that I would avoid going out into public. I spent hundreds of dollars a month on creams and treatments. LeeAnn was so kind and and understanding and worked out a plan (which in comparison was actually affordable) and the results has been incredible. I have had people stop me in the street to compliment me on my skin!!! And that was a no-make up day - which I did not think would ever be in the cards for me. I am SO grateful for this clinic and will forever be showing my photos to strangers

My experience working with Lola at Canyon Laser & Skin Care has been exceptional. Lola is a true professional in the skin care world and extremely knowledgable in medical lasers. When I first came in we started with a thorough assessment of my skincare concerns and discussed a plan that was tailored specifically to my needs. I have done 3 treatments so far with the Skin Tyte laser. We focussed on my jowls and neck and I could not be more thrilled with the results after 3 sessions. The treatment has noticeably improved per session and you can see a definite tightening and firming in these areas. I am thrilled with the results so far and I have 2-3 more treatments to go. If you are on the North Shore, without doubt make sure to go see Lola for Skin Tyte or any of the other skin care treatments they offer at Canyon Laser.
