2021 Message from Amanda
As 2021 comes to a close I find myself reflecting on this year’s achievements. It has been a long journey from the days of having a small studio in my home with one laser. I’ve had the opportunity to meet countless new faces this year, the team has grown, and we continue to challenge the capabilities of our technology and products to offer you (our lovely patients!) the best of the best when it comes to skin health.
Where we started…
5 years ago I was a rep in the industry meeting some of the best dermatologists and technicians in western Canada. I worked with these clinics and their patients' skin and goals. The best part of my job was meeting with the patients and educating on the importance of skin health. It was when my daughter Taylor started to struggle with acne when the idea of helping her grew into a passion to start a business to help others.
I started Raw Canvas by designing a small but mighty studio in the basement of my home. This began by offering dermaplaning and microneedling treatments and expanded to include medical grade skin care like ZO and IS Clinical. I was starting to see dramatic results in my patient’s skin, and I didn’t want to stop there.
The next big step was to offer laser and light treatments. Skin care products are the base of lifelong skin health but I knew that technology would take my patients results to the next level. Just as it did for my daughter.
Throughout my years of working with clinics I saw first hand what type of treatments and technology provided the best before and afters. I didn’t just want to invest in any technology, I wanted to offer the best. I still hold to that standard today.
Investing in laser and light technology provided me with the ability to offer complete treatment plans. The best part - I have been able to join thousands of patients on their journey to beautiful skin that they love.
Skin health is at the forefront of everything I do…
My dream with Raw Canvas was to simply provide patients with the means to get their skin to a place they love. A line I hear so often from patients is “I wish I invested in my skin earlier”. I love hearing this. Every product and technology I welcome into the clinic has this goal in mind - to get patients to a place where they love their skin again.
Thank you for supporting us
Being a small, local, woman-owned business means that every new consultation, return visit, and online order keeps us going every day. I cannot say thank you enough - thank you for trusting me and my team with your skin.
