Stewart White said the property

was being sold as ‘vacant possession’

– with both the garden

centre and café moving out in

the near future.

He said there was the potential

that the site could be redeveloped

into a suburban shopping hub

– with Ferry Rd being the main

arterial route linking the CBD

with the Sumner, Mt Pleasant,

Ferrymead, Lyttleton and

Woolston.

traffic-usage figures show some

23,500 vehicles are driven past

the property on an average week

commuters.

“It has also been mooted that

the location could be transformed

hub capable of sustaining

between three and five individual

outlets operating under one roof,”

Mr White said.

THE COUNTRY’S first fully

electric bus service will be

plugged into Christchurch early

next year.

And if the roll-out is successful,

they could make their way to the

city’s hill suburbs.

Red Bus has purchased three

electric buses as part of its commitment

to gradually introducing

new innovative technology across

the public transport service.

The new buses, which will be

delivered by next March, will

be used on the direct service

route 29 between the CBD and

Christchurch Airport which

carries more than 200,000

passengers annually.

Red Bus chief executive Paul

McNoe said it is interested in the

potential for wider use of electric

buses and will be testing the new

buses on other routes – including

hill suburbs – once they have settled

into service.

“Based on current use of a similar

electric bus design in Sydney,

Canberra, London and China

we’ll be able to use them all day

without needing a re-charge.”

He said the buses will also

have environmental and health

benefits.

Veterinary practice

EXCITING NEW TECHNOLOGY

AT MCMAsTEr & HEAp VETs

Veterinary science is an ever changing,

progressive and exciting field to try to keep

abreast of. Over the past year Steve and I

have invested in an Ultrasound machine

that is of human quality and we also have

digital radiography, which is amazing. Now

I can zoom in on joints and bones to look

for a lesion. We are also moving very shortly

to a new in house laboratory system which

will allow us to perform many more blood

tests in clinic.

Recently we made the

huge leap to change

our veterinary software

system and integrate

a digital system for

patient monitoring,

both our intensive

care, hospital and

surgical patients,

therefore getting

rid of pen and paper completely. Our old

system had served us well for 15 years but

it was high time to go “cloud based”. Last

week we went “Live” with EzyVet software

and actually its not as difficult as I thought

it would be. I’ve learnt you just need an

open mind as any old dog can learn new

tricks. Its actually been quite fun.

prescription foods, arthritic medications

etc. Once we get going with the system we

will have ipads out at reception for you to

electronically consent to a procedure and

update your details for us. Our database will

be more accurate and it will speed up the

process.

Once you have consented to a procedure,

your pets details and what its in for gets

transferred digitally to the treatment

area and goes up live on one of our TV

monitors. As certain tasks are completed

like blood tests, radiographs, sedations

given, then the TV monitor ticks these tasks

off. Its been quite hard resisting a paper

chart but we have less clutter and mess

and more accurate means of recording

every little detail now.

I’m really proud of how our 20+ staff have

embraced this challenge and tried hard to

learn all the features these new systems

have to offer. Last

Tuesday I had two

knee surgeries in dogs

to do and Jaimee

my nurse managed

the ipad monitoring

Company donates

ambulance to St John

A NEW ambulance

with improved interior

layout has been donated

to St John by Generation

Homes.

The new Gen 3 ambulance

is the latest model in

the St John fleet which has

a layout to allow ambulance

officers to work more

efficiently and comfortably

when treating patients.

Named after Generations

Homes, the ambulance

was gifted in a dedication

ceremony recently and will

be stationed where needed

in Canterbury.

St John relies on the

support of individuals and

businesses for funding to

provide it’s vital community

service.

Generation Homes

Christchurch has prioritised

giving to St John

since its beginning with a

long-term goal to donate

an ambulance.

The company has

donated for almost five

years and is approaching

$100,000 in donations to

St John.

South Island fundraising

and marketing manager

for St John Debbie Pipson

said the ambulance is

proof of the impact a single

business can have on

keeping their community

healthy.

“By donating lifesaving

equipment, Generation

Homes is helping ensure

people receive highest

quality care when needed

most.”

the EzyVet software system, therefore

freeing up our time considerably.

Our field is so challenging and exciting and

there is always something new to consider

having to improve the level of service we

can offer. Steve and I have got big plans

in the next 12 months to build onto our

existing Vet Practice, therefore offering

more services to our clients and providing

more space to our ever growing database

Mr White said that

under this prospect, the

substantial Ferry Rd site

could either be leased to

multiple stand-alone food

and beverage operators, or

sustain one sole-operator

creating several uniquely

themed non-competing

spaces under a ‘one roof’

destination.

Examples of this hubstyle

configuration include

the highly-successful Ponsonby

Central hospitality

destination in Auckland’s

Ponsonby Rd, or the

recently opened Press Hall

in Wellington’s Willis St,

which contains 12 independent

eateries.

However, Mr White said

the future of the site was

hard to pick.

“Most obviously, this

property is an opportunity

for an existing retail gardening

supplies operator

in the market to either

relocate their existing operations

into a well-known

purpose-built destination,

or for a new entrant into

this sector of retailing to

establish a garden supplies

retailing business entity on

the site.”

The Ferry Rd buildings

are predominantly timber

framed based on concrete

floors and foundations,

with exposed pitched

beams and rafters and

corrugated iron roofing.

The property is surrounded

with security fencing, while

an expansive tar-sealed car

park has parking for about

47 vehicles.

“The structural

configuration and open

plan layout of the building

complex means it could

also be a turnkey site for

a hardware and home

building supply outlet

– with the potential to

quite easily add new

warehousing space.”

How a rose register is protecting our heritage

GIFTING A former Maori

burial ground to

local runanga is an

ill-considered act of

privatisation, says

the Purau Residents

Association.

There have been ongoing

discussions about

returning ownership and

management of Purau

Maori Reserve over the

past century and in December

last year the local

hapu Ngati Wheke asked

the city council to explore

the option.

A city council report

supporting the transfer

was tabled at a Banks Peninsula

Community Board

meeting last week.

The report gave two

options, one of which

would reclassify the land

from recreation reserve to

historic reserve.

The second and preferred

option was initiating a process

to revoke the reserve

status, enabling the city

council to then consider

“returning the land to Te

Hapu o Ngati Wheke.”

But association spokesman

Thomas Kulpe questioned

whether gifting the

land was the right step.

While it was understandable

the runanga

would seek ownership, he

said, it was only because

the city council had “done

nothing” to recognise

and protect the area from

inappropriate use such as

eating, drinking and playing

games.

He wanted the reserve

fenced off immediately –

something that “should

have been done years ago.”

“I want to see it reclassified

as an historic reserve

and I want to see proper

recognition of our common

history by the city

council,” said Mr Kulpe.

The whole of the Purau

area had history which was

not just “private to Maori”

but a common, shared history,

he argued.

“To rob ‘Peter’ (of a

public reserve) and hand it

to Maori just because Ngai

Tahu has a lot of political

influence is not right,” said

Mr Kulpe.

He raised doubts about

the veracity of information

supporting the land transfer

from the city council

Rapaki representative

Yvette Couch-Lewis said it

wasn’t appropriate to comment

at this time.

The supporting information

in the city council

report was “biased, incorrect

and has omissions,”

Mr Kulpe said, questioning

the archeological evidence

cited. It was written by Te

Hapu o Ngati Wheke and

is a summary of historical

information that was included

in a cultural values

report commissioned by

the city council last year

at the recommendation

of Mahaanui Kurataiao

Ltd, an advisory company

set up to represent the

interests of six Ngai Tahu

The report was left on

issues raised by Mr Kulpe.

Robin

by dave Itzkoff

From New York Times culture reporter Dave Itzkoff, the definitive biography of Robin Williams

- a compelling portrait of one of America’s most beloved and misunderstood entertainers.

From his rapid-fire stand-up comedy riffs to his breakout role in Mork & Mindy and his

Academy Award-winning performance in Good Will Hunting, Robin Williams was a singularly

innovative and beloved entertainer. He often came across as a man possessed, holding

forth on culture and politics while mixing in personal revelations - all with mercurial, tonguetwisting

intensity as he inhabited and shed one character after another with lightning speed.

But as Dave Itzkoff shows in this revelatory biography, Williams’s comic brilliance masked a

deep well of conflicting emotions and self-doubt, which he drew upon in his comedy and in

celebrated films like Dead Poets Society; Good Morning, Vietnam; The Fisher King; Aladdin;

and Mrs. Doubtfire, where he showcased his limitless gift for improvisation to bring to life

a wide range of characters. And in Good Will Hunting he gave an intense and controlled

performance that revealed the true range of his talent.

Itzkoff also shows how Williams struggled mightily with addiction and depression - topics he

discussed openly while performing and during interviews - and with a debilitating condition

at the end of his life that affected him in ways his fans never knew. Drawing on more than a

hundred original interviews with family, friends, and colleagues, as well as extensive archival

research, Robin is a fresh and original look at a man whose work touched so many lives.

Her story went viral when she shared photos of the excess skin that remained after her weight

loss. And when she was offered surgery to remove the skin, she documented the whole

experience and got worldwide media attention.

In this honest and moving book, Simone shares her key messages of body positivity and

learning to love yourself. An inspiring read for anyone.

Levi Horowitz isn’t a natural-born soldier. But in November 1938, Berlin is a volatile place

for a Jew, and the talented young musician secures passage to Switzerland. Instead, Levi

is taken to a Danish border checkpoint and from then on his war becomes secret, even

from those he loves best.

In 2017, a recording emerges, showing Levi in 1945 and revealing a story in equal parts

shocking and heroic. It is a journey that leads him face-to-face with Hitler, and into a

position to change the final outcome of the war.

Levi’s War follows on from the enthralling historical novels The Keeper of Secrets and

Rachel’s Legacy, this time tracing the story of the eldest Horowitz son. Whether you’re

discovering Julie Thomas’s books for the first time, or making a return visit to the saga of

the Horowitz family, Levi’s War will leave you utterly breathless.

Mind That Child: A Medical Memoir

By dr Simon rowley

‘There is always a baby for whom you can feel happy at what they have achieved, or sad

when things go wrong. There are always parents to help through an incredible journey . .

. I am, I know, a very lucky man.’

Leading paediatrician Dr Simon Rowley has committed almost all of his working life to the

care and wellbeing of children.

In Mind That Child, Rowley provides a rare glimpse into what it means to be entrusted

with the most precious of responsibilities - a young human life. Charting his decades

of medical experience, Rowley touches on an array of issues, from the high-stakes

management of tiny pre-term babies to the serious impacts of drugs, alcohol and

technology on developing minds. Real-life cases and practical advice are interwoven

throughout a candid, compassionate narrative.

What’s revealed is a tender and profound portrait of a medical professional at the very

centre of what matters - a doctor who always adopts a humane, holistic view and who

writes openly about the personal impact of a career in medicine.

A must-read for any parent and a wonderful insight into the high-pressure medical world.

Urumau bike tracks to stay or go?

Reserve plan

rejected again

• By Sarla Donovan

AN UPDATED development

plan for Lyttelton’s Urumau

Reserve has been rejected for

the second time.

The sticking point is whether

some mountain bike tracks in

the reserve should be removed

or retained.

The Banks Peninsula Community

Board first considered

the plan on April 16 but sought

clarification

on the legality

and compliance

of tracks

within the reserve

and their

environmental

impact, along

Jed

O’Donoghue

with traffic

and parking

issues.

A new report

presented to the board last

week said advice from the city

council’s legal team was that

tracks can develop over time

simply by people repeatedly using

a particular area.

But it appeared city council

staff had “worked with (reserve

management) committee members

on track alignment and the

like” in the years since the 2008

plan was approved, said the

report.

It concluded the Urumau

mountain bike tracks complied

with design guidelines and

standards, there was no increased

sedimentation run-off

caused by the tracks, and they

avoided native planting sites as

much as possible.

But the board again backed

away from adopting the plan

and has asked the committee

to meet with an independent

facilitator to decide whether to

close any tracks before the plan

is adopted.

The report noted that city

council ranger staff were “aware

of the, at times, fractious nature

of the committee.”

It said discussions and

decisions about the mountain

bike track network made at

committee meetings were

often “poorly formalised and

subsequently poorly recorded in

the minutes.”

Tracks can only be removed

UNDECIDED:

The future of

current and

proposed

mountain

bike tracks

in Urumau

Reserve is still

up in the air. ​

by the board as part of the

development plan process and

before final adoption.

Board member Jed

O’Donoghue said it was

important to get the plan right

because, once adopted, it would

have to go before the full city

council if any tracks needed to

be removed.

“We want to be very clear

about what is and isn’t going to

stay there and want everybody

to be comfortable with that.”

Mr O’Donoghue said no date

had been set for the meeting.

a large number of native trees on

June 16.

Alongside the community,

the TREEmendous team will

convert an unused area of the

school’s grounds into an outdoor

classroom.

The school plans to create

an outdoor learning space that

children can interact with and

learn about the environment.

Their new classroom will

include a magnetic wall, large

birds nests made of logs and a

range of play equipment for the

children to engage with.

The school, which was affected

by the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, and lost its library

to a fire in 2012, hopes the new

learning area will inspire a love of

nature in the children.

The Bugman Ruud Kleinpaste

will also be there to teach

students about the bugs found in

gardens.

Planting will begin at 8.30am

and a barbecue lunch will be held

from noon.

Conquering Everest at

home raises $3720

• By Sarla Donovan

MT PLEASANT woman Heidi

Anderson has raised $3720 for

the Himalayan Trust.

The fitness instructor last

month walked and biked the

height of Mt Everest on the Port

Hills – 8848m over 31 days – to

raise money in support of the

trust’s work.

She also held a movie night

and raffle at the Hollywood

cinema in Sumner, which combined

raised $1700.

Over the course of the month,

Ms Anderson walked up Mt

Herbert in a time of 3hr 26min.

She said she nearly turned

back after walking into a field of

extremely vocal cows.

“I heard them 10min before

I saw them. It turned out they

were more frightened of me

with my walking pole. The challenge

got me through otherwise

I’d have been back after 45min,”

she said.

Ms Anderson also hiked

Purple Peak in Akaroa, ran up

plenty of stairs and did a lot of

cycling on the hills.

She was thankful for all those

who had supported her in completing

the challenge.

The Himalayan Trust was

founded by Sir Edmund and

Louise Hillary in the 1960s to

bring better educational and

medical facilities to Nepal.

Shellfish limit long-standing

CONCERNED: Stephanie

Hampson’s research into

the health of shellfish in the

estuary may prompt a review

of daily catch limits.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

THE SHELLFISH catch limit

in the Avon-Heathcote Estuary

hasn’t changed since 1986.

Researcher Stephanie

Hampson has found that cockle

numbers had fallen dramatically

between 2012 and 2017.

A Ministry of Primary Industries

spokesperson confirmed the

current limit has been in place

since the Fisheries (Amateur

Fishing) Regulations were set in

1986.

Ms Hampson said the combination

of poor nutrients in

the water and pressure from

collecting was responsible for the

serious decline in numbers, from

around 400 per sq m five years

ago to between 50 and 80 per sq

m in some areas.

She said the results indicated

the catch limit of 150 cockles per

person per day was too high and

needed to be reduced or even a

ban put in place.

An MPI spokesperson said

they would be interested in learning

more about the results of Ms

Hampson’s research once it had

been reviewed.

It was not currently aware of

any concerns being raised about

the estuary.

“In key areas where we are

aware of concerns regarding the

sustainability of cockle harvesting

we commission surveys to

estimate the health of cockle

beds. If there is cause for concern

a range of management tools are

available.”

Shellfish take limits varied

throughout the country and

reflected the “best available information

on what is sustainable,”

said the spokesperson.

In some areas the limit is a

result of local area management,

such as within mataitai fishery

reserves or taiapure – local

fisheries such as Rapaki and

Koukourorata mataitai on Banks

Peninsula.

Pokie machines – suburb by suburb

• By Bridget Rutherford

AVONHEAD, Sockburn and

Upper Riccarton had the highest

spend on gaming machines in

the city for the first three months

of the year.

The suburbs, which are clustered

together in the Ministry of

Internal Affairs’ latest statistics

from January to March, have 72

non-casino gaming machines in

four venues.

The total gaming machine

proceeds for the three months

was $1.56 million.

The venues included Avonhead

Tavern, Bush Inn Tavern, Racecourse

Hotel and Monteith’s on

Merrin St.

Although the clustered area

had the highest spend, it did

not have the highest number of

machines.

The most pokies were in the

area of North New Brighton,

Parklands, Waimairi Beach and

New Brighton, with 117 at seven

venues.

Gaming machine proceeds for

that cluster was $1.44 million at

Chats Bar and Cafe, Endeavour

Tavern, New Brighton Working

Men’s Club, The Wave, The Turf,

The Bower and Queenspark Ale

House.

Harewood, Merivale, Redwood,

Belfast and Kainga also

had 117 machines at Coasters

Tavern, Highway Inn, Papanui

Club, Redwood Hotel, Waimakariri

Tavern, The Peg, Belfast’s

Robbie’s Bar and Bistro and The

Elmwood. The spend was $1.5

million.

Christchurch Central, Linwood

and Phillipstown saw a

spent of $1.39 million at the 87

machines, while Bishopdale’s 54

machines saw proceeds of $1.36

million.

The figures come as a new

system, called Guardian, is being

trialled in 15 bars and clubs

nationally, which scans faces of

people who enter gaming rooms.

It then checks them against a

cloud-based database of people

who have voluntarily excluded

themselves. If there is a match,

staff would be alerted and could

ask them to leave.

As of March, there were 1334

non-casino pokie machines in

Christchurch and Banks Peninsula.

From January to March in

Christchurch and Banks Peninsula,

punters spent more than

$19 million on non-casino gaming

machines.

During that period Lyttelton

and Akaroa had the least machines,

with 34 at three venues

and just $187,458 in proceeds.

BIG

SPENDERS:

From January

to March,

more than

$19 million

was spent on

non-casino

gaming

machines in

Christchurch.

Latest Ministry of Health

statistics show from July 2016 to

June 2017, 879 new clients sought

help for gambling problems in

Christchurch – 10.5 per cent of

the national figure.

There were 1207 clients who

sought help in total.

The Salvation Army Oasis

national operations manager Lisa

Campbell said it supported 129

people in Canterbury last year

who were harmed by pub and

club pokie gambling.

“We also did brief interventions

with another 128 people

who were harmed by pub and

club pokies.”

She said The Salvation Army

harm.

“We’d really encourage people

Salmon return to Heathcote River

after work to improve water quality

• By Stacey Bryan

SALMON ARE returning to the

Heathcote River after years of

work to improve water quality.

The discovery was made

during The Mother Of All

Clean Ups, an annual event that

attracts hundreds of volunteers

to remove rubbish from the city’s

rivers.

Environment Canterbury’s

pollution prevention adviser

Nick Moody said the chinook

salmon appeared to have

spawned up stream and then

died, which is the natural cycle.

The Ōpāwaho Heathcote River

Network, city council and ECan

are two years into a five-year

project that aims to improve the

water quality of the river.

Mr Moody said it was

encouraging to see the fish

were choosing to breed in the

Heathcote, even in the middle of

the city.

“If the eggs survive . . . then the

next generation of salmon could

return from the ocean to breed

again in a few years.”

Salmon need clean

riverbeds to breed successfully,

so preventing erosion on

construction sites over winter is

essential.

Mr Moody said heavy metals

were also a concern. About

two tonnes of copper enter

Christchurch’s waterways

every year from car brake pads

and this is toxic in very small

amounts.

When a vehicle’s brakes are

activated, a small amount is

shaved off the pads and this is

eventually washed into the rivers

via drains.

NATURAL CYCLE: ECan’s Nick

Moody found a salmon redd

(nest) in the upper Heathcote

River.

Name sparks controversy

Heathcote

Ward city

councillor

Sara

Templeton

explains

the process

behind road

naming in

the city

THERE’S BEEN some

discussion within these pages

recently about the naming of a

new street in Heathcote Valley

– Kairuri Lane.

It’s clear from comments

that the city council’s processes

around road naming are

opaque, so I thought I’d have

a go at explaining them, using

this one as an example.

Under the city council’s

roads and right-of-way naming

policy, the names considered

for new roads must be requested

by the developer, who puts

forward three for consideration.

The community board is

then able to either approve a

name or not.

In this instance the developer

had requested that Reynard

Lane be approved by the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board, but the

board had concerns that it

wasn’t in keeping with other

historic street names in the

area, so asked the developer to

present some other options.

He did and came back at the

following meeting with Reynard

Lane as his preferred option,

then Abney Lane (named

for an old surveying tool) and

also Kairuri Lane (the Maori

word for surveyor).

He had consulted with

Mahaanui Kurataiao Ltd, a

resource and environmental

advisory group, which agreed

that the name ‘Kairuri’ was

culturally appropriate.

The word kai in this case is

used as a prefix to verbs and

stipulates the person of the

action. For example mahi

(work) is kaimahi/worker and

kōrero (speak) is kaikōrero/

speaker. Rūri is a translated

English word for ruler, so

Kairūri means surveyor. The

community board has previously

had concerns about the

road naming policy and last

year asked the city council to

review the policy to enable

better outcomes.

We were concerned that

CONCERNS:

The choice of

name – Kairuri

Lane – for a new

subdivision on

Bridle Path Rd

has attracted

controversy.

there is currently little resident

involvement and also that

it was difficult to encourage

developers to present Te Reo

names as options.

The city has very few

Maori street names, even with

the long historic connection to

the area and so this was one of

the issues that we took into consideration

when we approved

the developers’ third option.

I am hopeful that the review

of the policy will mean both

greater community involvement

in road naming processes,

especially in existing

communities, and a greater

recognition of tangata whenua.

designed to be flexible and

configurable so different events

can be held simultaneously.

Te Pae’s curved façade reflects

Canterbury’s mountain and

Construction on Te Pae, Christchurch’s

new convention centre, is progressing

rapidly. This venue opens Christchurch

purpose-built for large-scale events allows

opportunities to promote our local strengths

and internationally respected expertise in

sectors such as primary production, earth

sciences, medical research and software

innovation, to an international audience.

Already we are expecting 3000 visitors

for events in the month of October 2020,

soon after Te Pae is scheduled to open.

Business event travellers typically

spend twice as much as leisure tourists

and ChristchurchNZ estimates

our city is currently missing out on

$90M in direct investment each year

by not having such a facility.

Christchurch has long been considered a

great city for hosting business events. Te Pae

will ensure we are once again able to welcome

to attend expos, public presentations,

An iconic landmark in our flourishing

cityscape, influences of our landscape

are interwoven into the striking

building design, making it a physical

representation of New Zealand, our

Injured hand doesn’t stop champ

Riverside boxer takes title

• By Jacob Page

RIVERSIDE BOXER Thomas

Hanford’s suspected broken

right hand didn’t stop him

winning a trophy at the South

Island Golden Gloves – but it did

stop him accepting it.

Hanford won the most

courageous youth trophy in

the event at the Cashmere Club

over Queens’ Birthday weekend,

as well as the under-64kg

youth open grade after beating

Waikuku’s Dylan Gibson.

Hanford was at the hospital

getting it looked at, which meant

his coach had to accept his

trophy. “The ringside doctor told

me it was broken but the x-ray

The 18-year-old, who has been

“I saw him drop his hands a bit

in round two and I caught him

with a clean over-hand right and

my hand bugged out on me,” he

said.

“After that I was a little more

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Protect your face

during winter weather

The wind is howling outside, and your

face is taking the brunt of the winter

weather. Cold, chapped, dehydrated skin

is depleting your face of its moisture and

youthful glow.

Plus, with the high levels of chlorination

in the city water, skin damage has taken

place even though the levels

of chlorine are being lowered.

Too little, too late as it doesn’t

matter what age a person is,

the short-term effect on the

body’s skin has been harmful

especially on the face which can

tremendously benefit from the

ADURO LED Light Therapy

machine.

NASA uses LED light therapy

to heal wounds in space and on

earth, imagine what it can do

for your skin.

Acne a concern? As it thrives

in harsh environments like dry

weather or hormonal imbalance

and can be very painful and

uncomfortable, plus acne leaves

a person’s skin looking worn,

leather looking and scarred.

Charmaine and her team to

the rescue. With more than two decades

of experience behind them, the clinic

offers a variety of services including Teeth

Whitening, Anti-Acne, Anti-Aging, Age

Spots, Eczema, Psoriasis, Uneven Skin

Tone, Rejuvenation treatments and so

much more.

BEFORE

AFTER

Amazing results – before and after photos

supplied by a happy client, who has been

battling acne all her life

Their technical LED Light Therapy facial

machine is having astounding results by

infusing nourishment back into the skin

pores with the natural but active Mismo

skincare range.

For acne, the LED machine helps with

anti-bacterial treatments, which makes

puss pools smaller and smaller

over time, so the acne won’t be as

visible on the face. Then as soon

as the acne has started lessening,

switch to the Acne Anti-Scarring

treatment program.

The LED machine also triggers

the regrowth of collagen which

smooths out wrinkles and lessens

facial line severity, Age Spots &

Scars

In addition to the LED laser

machine, the clinic is expanding

its services and relocating to a

new facility in mid-June.

“The expansion and new

location is exciting. Our team

looks forward to providing these

new services to our customers

to enhance their lifestyle,” owner

Charmaine smiles.

“We appreciate our customer

loyalty and for the opportunity to serve

them as we started with the Sparklewhite

teeth whitening system, which we still

offer, and then expanded into the LED

Light Therapy and facial treatments and

now have expanded our beauty services,

products, and treatments at our new

location.”

winter, plus its always nice to have a

pearly white smile. Check out their
