Friendly, professional and skilled.
Owner of Vancouver Laser Skin Care Clinic, Master Aesthetician, and certified laser technician, with over 20 years of aesthetic laser and skin care experience. Lori grew up in Oregon, attending Portland State University and graduating from Executive Institute of Hair Design with a Cosmetology License in 1981.
Moving to Southern California, Lori was introduced to the first CO2 laser treatments performed by Dr. Gary Lask, head of the Laser Department of UCLA, and world renowned dermatologist Dr Howard Murad. Seeing and experiencing the dramatic results from these treatments, Lori started on the career path of Laser Skin rejuvenation. She then started her own business in Manhattan Beach for five years customizing facials and peels and recommending skin care routines for all skin types.
Moving back to Oregon in 1996 she started working with Dr. Bruce Russell of Beaverton Oregon, as Aesthetic Division Manager. She helped build his Laser Dermatology practice after he retired his position with OHSU’s Laser Department. This opportunity to work with the expertise of Dr. Russell and to use the best Laser technology in the world opened many doors for Lori. To be able to reverse sun damage, facial lines, face /spider veins, sun/age spot removal, scarring, lifting and tightening loose sagging skin, and rejuvenate and refresh the skin with out surgery was amazing and gratifying.
Realizing her desire to own her own business again Lori opened Vancouver Laser Skin Care Clinic, bringing east Vancouver the best technology and skin care education to clients satisfaction. Lori’s motto is “approaching each clients skin care needs with the latest services and products offered for the natural beauty in you!”
Lori has held several charity benefits with proceeds going to abused mothers and children who are in safe houses. Giving the gift of hope for a new beginning has been heart warming.
She enjoys escaping to the Oregon coast every chance she can to breathe in the crisp fresh ocean air she’s finds this calming and rejuvenating any time of year. Balanced in mind body and spirit is the best place to be.
