Best Face Forward:
NO NEEDLES REQUIRED
The beauty space is ripe with trends, gadgets, and promises. So much so that we are seeing, almost daily, more and more devices that promise results without going under the knife or needle. What was once reserved for the plastic surgeon’s office, or very high end derma spas, is now available in a more accessible space, and at a more palatable price tag. No downtime required. Lasers, LED lights, radio frequency, and micro-current therapy are just some of the options to prevent, tweak, and care for your face and body, able to address signs of aging, gravity, or begin the preventative quest to age gracefully.

Toronto’s Tight Clinic offers non-invasive treatments that rival the alternative. Being one of the few places in Canada to offer state of the art technology that defies gravity, turns back time, and comes with a warning that treatment there “will cause happiness,” owner Karmen LaMer is happy to be providing an alternative and explains it all to us here.
On starting Tight Clinic
When I was 30 years old, I was diagnosed with cancer and had to face a year of treatments including chemotherapy, radiation, and many surgeries. After my treatment was finished, my hormones were severely affected and my face just started to fall. Most women face this in their 30s, however mine came fast and hard. I did not want to go down the route of knives and needles in any excessive manner. I wanted to preserve my youth but still look like myself. I was reading an article that was discussing the Forma Facial – it is extremely popular in the US, especially California and NYC, but there were very few places in Canada that were carrying the technology. After I met with the company, I was blown away by the technology (and the hefty price tag, explaining why it was rare in our country). I decided to bring this technology to everyone in a chill, laid back, positive environment and hence ‘Tight Clinic’ was born. It saved my face and I knew it would serve all Toronto women, either preventatively or as a rescue for skin that age and gravity has touched.
