I find Shelley to be extremely professional and experienced. She is highly trained. I wouldn't go anywhere else for my skin treatments.

Shelley brings not only a wealth of experience and technical know-how but state of the art technology to her studio environment. The ambiance is relaxing and most pleasant. She was able to eliminate a vascular lesion on my cheek with a combination of thermo coagulation and light technical. Thanks so much Shelley.

Shelley is truly an expert in the field of permanent hair removal. Her establishment is very clean and attractive. She is professional and very knowledgeable, and I am impressed with my results. I would recommend her to anyone. P.S. - Love the skin tightening and photo facials too.

I found Shelley to be professional, informative and courteous. Her experience in this field is very evident. I've had her laser my neck with great results. She has also given me 4 treatments of skin tightening and rejuvenation on my face. As a result I look and feel years younger. I'm grateful for all that Shelley has done for me and highly recommend her spa and services.

I am amazed at how quick the treatments are! This is pain free, fast, and effective. The results after only a few treatments are impressive. Shelley's studio is spotless and it is like walking into a spa. Shelley is very professional and makes you feel comfortable. I highly recommend her services!

BEST SKIN CLINIC I have suffered from unwanted facial hair for 10 years which was tweezed daily. Shelley is very knowledgeable and professional and took the time to examine the problem and explain the solution. After 12 treatments and trusting Shelley's advise, I am now almost free of unwanted facial hair which weighed heavy on my self-esteem. Shelley has earned my trust to the point where I am now having treatment on unwanted vessels which have disappeared after the first treatment and also even out my hairline. I am so impressed I have become a loyal customer and would recommend anyone with unwanted hair or vessels to see Shelley.

I'm a guy in my 40's and when I came to Shelley's studio I was very self concious of my back hair. I am very satisfied with the results Shelley's laser has had on my back. I've had 6 sessions to date and now can say that I am proud to take my shirt off on vacation when I'm in the hot tub where as I would never do this before. Not only did her laser remove my hair, it also helped my scars too.

Thank you!

I am surprised that the white chin whiskers have disappeared and I'm very pleased with my laser hair removal sessions with Shelley. The chin and upper lip hairs are fewer and and my sessions at only 3 laser sessions are now spaced further apart. Her personality and new facilities are top notch. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her services.

This is just so fast and easy! Absolutely no pain. 1 treatment and 1 month later still no regrowth. I love it and don't know why I waited so long to try Shelley's .

I have had just three electrolysis sessions at Shelley’s Electrolysis Studio & Laser Hair Removal home-based business. I am in my early 60’s and as my hormones change, hairs seem to appear where they were not before. Over the years, I have been to salons for electrolysis, where no improvement was seen. I was disappointed & discouraged, but after just three sessions at Shelley’s Studio, I see a 50% improvement already. Shelley has happily answered my many questions and I have been impressed by her knowledge and her caring personality. Shelley is very professional with many years of experience. Her studio is Spa-like which helps me to relax mind and body. Shelley’s Studio offers a variety of techniques for hair removal. I find her prices are in line with other salons in the area. The Salon offers new state-of–the-art electrolysis equipment. I am so pleased with the results.

I wasn't aware of Shelley's Studio before. Shelley made me feel very comfortable and the laser treatment didn't hurt or feel uncomfortable. Would definitely recommend her.

I am a 52 yr. old woman who was starting to dread looking in the mirror each morning. The lines around my mouth were becoming more prominent and I was particularly bothered by the loose and sagging skin on my neck and jawline. I found Shelley's ad online and after doing some research on the Silhouet Tone equipment that she was using, I decided to give it a try.

I am extremely pleased with the results I have had and with kShelley's professionalism. The condition of my skin has continued to improve throughout my sessions. The lines around my mouth have diminished significantly and my neck appears firmer. I frequently am told that I look much younger than my age and I crdit Shelley's treatments for this. I am currently on the maintenance program and I continue to see improvements. Shelley's professional demeanor is relaxing and I leave each session feeling rejuvenated.

I highly recommend this program to anyone who is looking for a program that will tighten their skin and improve their overall appearance.

"I came to Shelley wanting help to diminish my deep lines that were starting to set in. I hated my frown lines. Even in the first Silhouet Tone treatment there was a noticeable change. I find Shelley to be professional and very knowledgeable in the services she offers. Not to mention the best part is looking and feeling better.

I have been more than pleased with the results of my services and have been told I look younger. I highly recommend".

I have struggled with psoriasis since I was a teenager. I have tried a couple of skin rejuvenation treatments and it is the first and only thing that has really helped clear my skin.

I I have done laser sessions to my bikini line and have had no problems with in growns since.

Thanks Shelley!

I am of Jamaican descent and therefore I have a darker skin tone. I recently turned 40 years old and I have been struggling with unwanted facial hair for most of my life. One morning after spending way too much time trying to pluck and shave away these relentless hairs, I decided I had had enough and got on the internet to find someone to help me. I came across Shelley's advertisement and youtube video and was immediately attracted to her gentle energy. I had no idea who she was but for some reason I knew right away that she was the one I was going to call. I was very embarrased and ashamed by this problem of mine so it was extremely difficult for me to make the phone call. When Shelley answered the phone I knew there was no turning back and I started telling her my story. I ended up breaking down into a pile of tears and Shelley so graciously made me feel better by normalizing my problem and my emotional reaction. Shelley invited me to come in and see her to discuss the different possible treatments that would work for me. I didn't hesitate for a moment.

So far I have had two laser treatments on my jawline and chin area and my self confidence has already sky rocketed. Shelley's extensive experience and professionalism made me feel very relaxed and excited when I first arrived at her studio. Shelley's studio is a peaceful and quiet retreat, where I felt instantly welcome.

Shelley very methodically found my comfort level for the laser and proceeded with the treatment which lasted only about 15 minutes at the most. I saw results within a day or two and my skin looks and feels fantastic. It has been life changing. I can't wait to carry on with my treatments and see the end result. It was truly one of the most important phone calls I have made for myself.

“Thought I'd tell you that last night I had a comment from a gal in the dance group about my skin.  I told her you had done skin rejuvenation and she said she noticed that my skin looks so good and smooth, and she wondered what I had done.” After 1 treatment,  Ilene Howe, July 28,2011

“ I had approx. 3 treatments of electrolysis years ago on my eyebrows by Shelley.  I'm happy to say that no more tweezing was required after that.  I would highly recommend Shelley to anyone who is in the market for hair removal as she is very professional and effective at hair removal.  I'm back to try her laser IPL7 on my bikini line.  I trust Shelley because she hasn't led me in the wrong direction thus far.Thank you.”

Leamington, Ontario

“I got the phone book out and I decided on Shelley.  I have never been sorry.  I started going twice a week, one 15 minute treatment and one half hour.  From September to February.  Finally I started seeing the improvement.  Now I go once every eight days for 15 minutes and there’s a lot less hair to remove each time I go now.  My sisters had electrolysis 30 yrs ago, so I knew that it worked with persistence.  I have never felt better about anything I've done for myself and I would recommend Shelley to anyone.”

Ruby Rovere

“I am so excited about my results that I jumped at the chance to tell my story!  Shelley said she could help me. We started on my chin first.  I only had to go without shaving for one day before starting.  I went for my first appt. in October.  I psyched myself up for a long road ahead.  I was amazed only two treatments that lasted 30 min. each I had noticed a HUGE improvement!  I continued treatments, fifteen minutes a week until May.  What I couldn't believe was how much less hair I had so quickly 1998.  Bye the fall  I could go five months without a treatment.  My boyfriend never saw a single hair and he didn't even know I was Shelley's client.  (and still doesn't)  I just went to Shelley again in April 1999 .  I had two hairs I could see on my chin and a few on my stomach.  This is a girl who had to shave twice a day!!  The only regret I had is that I didn't do this sooner.  Remember, time goes by anyway whether you seek treatment or not.  If I hadn't gone to Shelley I'd still be shaving twice a day.  
To Shelley, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!”

Michelle has stated that she is more than happy to talk to you in person upon request.


After trying more than one establishment I discovered  Shelley and found her to be an experienced professional with high standards in hygiene and safety for her clients.  Her treatments were fast, efficient and most of all effective.  I'm truly pleased with the results.”

K. Smith

“I have been having electrolysis treatments for about 25 years.  Shelley has permanently removed my facial hair problem through regular treatments over a 6 month period.  It occurred to me that all the electrologists do not work with the same level of skill and integrity. Thank you for your excellent work, Shelley.”

Patricia Gibson

“I am a professional esthetician in the Nanaimo area.  I have referred clientele to Shelley for the past 7 years because of Shelley's reputation for being one of the best electrologists on the island as well as competent, qualified and a certified professional.  There are many people in need of a good electrologist and the many clients I have referred have been pleased with Shelley's knowledge and professionalism.”
