EPIDERMA CONTINUES ONTARIO EXPANSION
WITH OPENING OF TWO CLINICS IN THE OTTAWA REGION
Canada’s largest laser hair removal network sets up clinics in Orleans and Kanata
Ottawa, Ontario, November 22, 2005 — The nation’s capital region figures prominently in the expansion plans of
EPIDERMA, as the country’s largest laser hair removal network is extending its reach with the opening of new clinics
in Orleans and Kanata respectively.
EIPDERMA’s move into the Ontario market, which began a few months ago with the opening of a first clinic in
Kingston, is in keeping with the company’s efforts to make its laser hair removal technique more accessible to the
general public. EPIDERMA plans to open four more clinics in regional markets in 2006, before expanding into Toronto
“This marks the first time that we are going ahead with the almost simultaneous opening of clinics in the same urban
area and we are eager to measure its impact,” said EPIDERMA president Pierre Montminy. “We are confident our
unmatched expertise will respond to the specific needs of the clientele in the Ottawa region. This is a region that is not
unfamiliar with our services, since we have been operating a clinic in Gatineau for a few years now.”
The two new clinics occupy some 1,500 square feet of space and have two treatment rooms. Six experienced
technicians specializing in esthetics care recently completed training sessions under the supervision of an EPIDERMA
professional instructor to meet the industry’s highest standards.
“Our approach is based not only on the use of the most sophisticated equipment but also on the trusting relationship
between our technicians and our clientele,” remarked Susan Doepner, the manager of the Ontario clinical operations.
“Our treatment protocol, combined with the information and evaluation process conducted prior to the sessions,
ensures the well-being and peace of mind of our clients.”
The two clinics are both located near major arteries, affording easy access. The Orleans clinic, which officially opened
today, is on 10th Line Road at the Innes Road intersection, while the Kanata facility – which will be opening in a few
weeks – is on Hazeldean Road at the intersection of Castlefrank Road.
The EPIDERMA network, whose head office is in Sainte-Foy (Quebec), has 19 clinics, 54 treatment centres and
some 175 partners. A pioneer in the laser hair removal industry, the company has more than 28,000 clients and it has
administered more than 200,000 treatments.
