Shopper Drug Mart is launching a pilot Beauty Clinic that will be dedicated to cosmetic dermatology services.
The first clinic of its kind will be located in Oakville, Ontario, and will be overseen by skilled and experienced nurse practitioners.
The Beauty Clinic by Shoppers Drug Mart will provide one-on-one consultations and perform select cosmetic dermatology services and treatments, including cosmetic injections, dermal fillers, microdermabrasion, peels and a variety of laser services, according to the company. The new store will also be the only clinic in Oakville to offer Picosure Laser Treatments.
“Our customers expect us to offer the latest beauty products and services to meet their needs,” said Rachel Huckle, Senior Vice President, Shoppers Drug Mart. “With our expertise in both the health and beauty business, offering cosmetic treatments feels like a natural step for us. At the Beauty Clinic, customers can go beyond the beauty counter to a truly holistic luxury beauty experience.”
Shoppers Drug Mart states that the cosmetic dermatology market in Canada continues to grow, and is expected to double in the next five years. It said that with the increase in demand from customers, it’s in a position to provide these professional services “safely and conveniently.”
“Our research shows these types of cosmetic procedures are second only to manicures and pedicures,” said Huckle. “But it’s important that treatments are done by trusted professionals. Shoppers Drug Mart is currently the leading destination for beauty and skincare products and our customers’ trust in the quality of our products and services.”
Patients will also have the benefit of earning and redeeming PC Optimum points on a variety of items and services, said the company.
The Oakville location opens to the public on December 22 in the Shops on Dundas at 2501 Prince Michael Drive. Shoppers also has plans to open a second location in Toronto in the Shops at Don Mills in 2019.
