Who We Are
Welcome to LIFT! My name is Melissa Orser and except for my time spent in university, I have been a proud Maple Ridge resident since birth. I couldn’t imagine calling anywhere else home.
After university, I attended Blanche MacDonald which gave me a chance to learn about many areas of the aesthetics field and determine which of them I wanted to focus on. I quickly realized that I was drawn to the area of skincare, its processes and how to affect change using various products and technologies.
I completed the All Body Laser program focussing on medical aesthetics and immediately began working in the medical spa industry. I love our amazing Hydrafacial system and Eclipse Microneedling pen as I get to work closely with my clients to educate them on the importance of skincare while getting to know them on a personal level.
I have always had an artistic streak and felt that the Brow Babe apprenticeship program was a perfect way to compliment my skills while speaking to this need. Microblading is another way to help people see results that can have a dramatic effect on their appearance.
Opening Lift has allowed me to realize the dream of business ownership and combine it with my passion in this field. I look forward to meeting new clients and excited about the opportunity to work with them to meet their skincare goals.
When I am not at work, you will most likely find me hanging out with my amazing friends and family, lifting at the gym or trying not to fall asleep while watching a movie.
With over 15 years in the medical aesthetics field, Dawn is thrilled to be back at home in Maple Ridge, where her medical spa career began. Dawn is excited to see all of her clients from her previous clinics and welcome new friends to Lift. Some of her favorite treatments include Dermaplaning, Hydrafacial and the best of both worlds, our Lift exclusive Hydraplaning treatment. Of course, you can never go wrong seeing one of our amazing injectors for Dysport or a soft tissue filler treatment.
Dr. Len Hatlelid, MD
Dr Hatlelid is proud to be a part of Lift as our Medical Director and cosmetic injector of Dysport and Soft Tissue Fillers. If you’re thinking that you may recognize Dr. Hatlelid, it may be because he has been delivering the newest citizens of Maple Ridge in the maternity ward at Ridge Meadows Hospital, for decades. He is also a family physician practicing in Maple Ridge at Dewdney Medical Clinic. In his spare time he enjoys playing tennis, carpentry and strumming on the guitar with his band mates in the group, Rusty Nails.
Kaitlyn joins us with over 7 years of experience in the lash, makeup and esthetics industry. After graduation from the John Casablancas esthetics program and working as a lash technician for several years, Kaitlyn joined Lift as our lash expert but recently has expanded her areas of expertise to include Dermaplaning, IPL (photofacial and laser hair removal) and is a certified AlumierMD skin care professional.
We are thrilled to have Amanda join us in working with Dr. Hatlelid as our newest Dysport injector. Amanda brings her years of experience as a registered nurse and extensive education into this new and exciting area of her expanding practice. Her friendly and personable nature make her clients immediately feel at ease and she always goes out of her way to make sure her clients are thrilled with their experience at Lift!
At Lift, we understand that sometimes life happens and changes to your schedule can’t be helped. We ask that you do your best to let us know if you need to change your appointment, even if it is at the last minute. In the event that you do no- show your scheduled appointment, medical esthetic service appointments will be charged the equivalent of 20% of the original cost of the appointment and cosmetic injectable no-show appointments will be charged a flat fee of $50. These charges will remain on your account and will need to be paid at your next visit. We really do not enjoy charging these fees and would prefer not to so please give us a call if you need to make any changes.
