Cosmetic solutions for Vancouver
The year was 1996 and laser hair reduction was launched in Vancouver. The machine was large and the appointment times were long but the premise was groundbreaking.
A team of four amazing women answered Vancouver Laser’s phones from Dr. Brauns’ basement. They helped the Brauns raise awareness of this cutting-edge treatment and bring laser hair reduction to more people in Canada. The technician performing treatments was the one and only Dr. Martin Braun!
The laser hair reduction machine was run with a laptop that housed a floppy disk (the 90s nostalgia is strong!). Every week the floppy disk was mailed to a company in Georgia, USA to determine the royalties to be paid for use of the machine. Mail, cheque, floppy disk – the times have certainly changed since then!
