Who We Are
My name is Dawn and I grew up in many areas of the Lower Mainland but primarily in New West and the West End of Vancouver. As a young adult, life finally brought me to Maple Ridge. I have lived in so many cities in the Lower Mainland that one of my claims to fame is that you can drop me anywhere in the GVRD and I will know my way around. Except Richmond. That place is a mystery.
My knowledge and passions are a cocktail of many ingredients; of one-part laser, one-part skin care, one-part business, one-part client care and with a healthy splash of family and community. I am a certified lash extension technician, have a diploma in laser technology and have worked with many different laser systems including Palomar, Dermalase IPL, ND Yag and Alexandrite systems. I have also been trained in Hydrafacial skin care systems and have extensive knowledge of AlumierMD and Glo Beauty skin care lines. I am drawn to this field because of the opportunity to build relationships with people who have entrusted me with their skin care goals and to be along for the journey to help realize them.
Lift Skin Health & Laser is the culmination of a career steeped in the aesthetics industry and customer service. I couldn’t be prouder to be a part of our Lift family. Please stop by any time and say hi. We may know each other. The Lower Mainland isn’t that big after all.
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 skin care, 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. One of the most effective ways to see change is through the use of lasers and intense pulse light. I love our lasers and amazing Hydrafacial system as I get to work closely with my clients to educate them on the importance of skin care 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 skin care 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.
