DermaEnvy Skincare, a growing Canadian laser, skincare, and medical esthetics franchise, is continuing its national expansion with the opening of their seventh clinic, in Charlottetown, P.E.I.
The company awarded the franchise territory to local police officer, active community volunteer, and P.E.I. native, Kristi MacKay.
A 12-year veteran of Charlottetown Police Services as a constable and presently the school resource officer at a local high school, MacKay is following in the footsteps of family roots and tradition in becoming a third-generation island entrepreneur.
MacKay fell in love with the franchise model after becoming a regular client at the Moncton, N.B. clinic.
“I was intrigued by the opportunity to bring this franchise home to P.E.I.; the fresh and clean clinical setting, treatment results, and value for dollar make it unique in the Charlottetown market,” said MacKay.
Opening a business during a pandemic presented a unique set of challenges. The Atlantic bubble allowed the clinic project to move forward as the franchisor is based in Halifax, N.S. allowing travel between the two provinces.
The clinic will offer medical esthetic treatments such as laser hair removal, body contouring, skin rejuvenation, tattoo removal, microneedling, teeth whitening, clinical facials, and advanced peels.
As part of their grand opening on September 1, DermaEnvy Skincare has partnered with Special Olympics P.E.I. donating one dollar for each like on their Facebook page. The local charity’s annual fundraisers have been hit hard by pandemic limitations and this provided an opportunity to give back to the local community.
“We are excited to see the growth of the DermaEnvy Skincare brand and look forward to being a part of this beautiful province and community for many years to come. We are eager to introduce ourselves to everyone in the Charlottetown region and share what we do best—affordable, quality laser, skincare, and medical esthetics treatments,” said Cohen MacInnis, president of Wellness Brands Canada Inc., franchisor of the DermaEnvy Skincare brand.
The micro-clinic concept is unique in the industry with a focus on offering clients small, private, and professional clinic environments. They have found this model has been well-received by their clientele who often prefer a more personable and professional atmosphere over a traditional spa.
DermaEnvy Skincare, based in Halifax, is continuing its national expansion with clinics now located in five provinces including Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, P.E.I, and Ontario.
