Taz Talk...marking a milestone 20 years!


Reflecting on my career and the life of my business it seems ironically appropriate that this year marks the start of a milestone~ the 20th year for Skindulgence. My passion and vision for my business has always been skincare- as the name and logo suggests Skindulgence for serious skincare. I am thrilled that the same vision and passion is still alive and thriving!

  I would also like to take this opportunity on behalf of Team Skindulgence, to thank all our clients, for their loyalty, referrals & trust over the years. We wouldn't be successful without you!

As so many of you know that education and learning new things for me has not only kept me excited and motivated but has helped to keep Skindulgence on the competitive edge in the community. This year we  were the fist spa West of Toronto introduce Lipomassage, a technique from France & now we are thrilled to announce we at Skindulgence are taking "serious skincare" to another new level. Announcing ... 

         Paramedical Skin Revision by Danne

       Dr. Danne Montague King is a pioneer in skin revision-meaning literally, treatment protocols and products to reverse skin that has been traumatized by acne, scar tissue, pigmentation and of course the hands of time~ antiaging   

 (A picture says a 1000 words! Just look at Danne in the picture below at age 70!)

Our society is all about instant gratification, sadly in North America we don't pay too much attention to our daily skincare regime, then as we approach 40+ we suddenly panic and feel the need to opt for drastic invasive procedures such as chemical peels and face lifts

There is a better option.. Danne

     The Danne concept has been used with phenomenal success and is recognized and respected world wide within the medical world. Here in BC there are  only about 10 clinics that use the Danne line. We, at Skindulgence are excited to be one of only a  few exclusive treatment centers. The 4 phase Danne concept is unlike any other product line that I have ever come across, it is based on:

          Remove   ~ Rebuild   ~   Protect ~ Maintain


Women and men spend thousands of dollars a year on "so called" amazing miraculous skincare products, but what is the point if you don't remove the build up of dead skin cells first? This is the root problem in fighting to looking younger. Gentle but effective regular removal of dead skin cells will do many things;

~Make you look younger and your skin more vibrant

~Your makeup will go on smoother and be less cakey looking

~Your products like moisturizers and serums will go alt further, reducing the need to replenish them as quickly


 This step is feeding and rejuvenating of the skin at the cellular level. This is one of the most critical steps and a truly remarkable aspect of the Danne concept. Suppression of the pigmentation, the strengthening of the immunity cells in the skin and the stimulation of muscle happens in this stage


 Yes, as the name suggests it would be futile to do all this and then not protect it, mainly from environmental damage. Danne created the world's only transdermal sun protection used exclusively by the Olympic Athletes.


 This is the key because like anything else in life to maintain a healthy body we need to conscious of our diet, sleep and exercise. Skincare is also a lifelong process and regular use of the internal nutrition DMK EFA's  (A very high potency of  Omega 3/6/9  plus other antioxidants) for healing and support and "Transdermal Nutrition" (application of skincare products) will keep your skin in check and healthy.

Professional in spa treatments is a strong component of the Danne concept but the homecare treatments are critical partner to  support and maintain the results.

 Treatment protocols for Danne are individually customized for each client .An in-depth consultation is necessary , at which time your home care protocol , including Internal Nutritional Supplements are recommended & a treatment protocol is designated to address the client's needs.

For more information, please visit the Danne website at:

~ Enzyme Treatments ~the preliminary protocol for all new clients
