When I met Cheryl for the first time she told me how much she loved to treat acne because she knew how it felt to have adult acne. I went to see her for my first facial treatment last week and am already seeing amazing results. She is passionate about what she does and is 100% honest! That to me is the most important thing because I know I can trust her to help me. I'm so happy to have met her and my next appointment is already booked. I'm one step closer to getting rid of this pesky acne for good.
I purchased a microdermabrasion and photofacial package in autumn 2011. It was my first experience with such a treatment, so I was little nervous, but I was reassured and impressed by the clinic owner Dr. Cheryl Hodge's thorough and attentive consultation. I have had sensitive acne-prone skin most of my life and had started seeing wrinkles that I didn't know how to treat properly. Cheryl suggested I had a mild case of rosacea, which the photofacial could address, in addition to treating my large pores and signs of aging. Immediately following the first treatment, I saw a remarkable improvement in my complexion. It was clearer, brighter, and firmer with tighter pores and much less ruddiness and sensitivity. I later purchased a photofacial promotion at another clinic and was very disappointed with the service and results. I have been a loyal Modica client ever since, returning regularly for photofacials and, more recently, chemical peels. Cheryl makes sure to test my skin's reaction to the peel type, strength, and application each time to ensure the best results. I also use the excellent line of Dr. Babor skin care products. I'm now over 50 and most people wouldn't guess my age. More importantly, I've never been happier with my appearance.
This clinic has been controlling my Rosacea for the last 3 years, so when my 19 year old son was finally ready to seriously treat his acne, we headed to Modica.
Everything was explained in detail - nothing was sugar-coated, and my son understood that he had to be a committed participant in order for the treatment to work. (He has to commute every 2 weeks between Ottawa and Westmount, Quebec). It has been 4 months since he started treatments, and he has just given the clinic permission to use his before and after pics.
J'ai eu le meilleur facial de ma vie chez Modica ce soir.
I had the best microdermabrasion facial at Clinique Modica in Westmount!! I LOVE that place!
It wasn't really a SPA experience since I was going there for laser treatment (underarm hair). What was amazing though, is that after only ONE treatment (painless, which lasted something like 5 minutes), my hair took forever to regrow. So I'm very happy! I did my second treatment today (6 weeks later) and wonder if I will really need a third one! :)
caring, relaxing, refreshing, informative. Wanda was gentle and precise and was very focused on ensuring that I was totally comfortable and at ease. I would definitely refer others to this spa and this experience and I would return for future treatments also. A very well done facial --the best I have ever had.
I stepped into Modica, and caught my breath!!! The clinic is housed in a beautiful building with the old brick and wood architecture well preserved and tastefully enhanced!! The team was professional and welcoming. My needs were catered to, and I was not smothered. I had a 5 course treatment for my rosacea which I was have had for over 10 years, and which I considered to be quite severe. At the initial consultation, I was educated about my condition. I had a number of issues clarified - easpecially that there was no facial, nor face cream, which would treat my rosacea. Also that chemical peels should NOT be performed on my face!! I was immensely pleased after the 1st treatment, and nothing could prevent me from completing the course of treatments. I anticipated each treatment session and was always happy with the results. Rosacea can be such an indescribably incapacitating & fustrating skin condition. Thank you, Modica for treating not just my rosacea, but also my discontent, fustration & unhappiness!! I know that Rosacea is incurable, but when I need to have treatments repeated, I know that Modica will be there!
I began treatments at Modica in the spring of 2009. After a somewhat difficult opening while their owner was absent, they reorganized to become courteous, efficient and attentive in both staffing and service. IPL treatment is an amazingly effective hair removal method. My skin is extremely sensitive; I am unable to shave without razor burn, waxing causes ingrown hairs, electrolysis is not good for large areas and is incredibly painful and tedious. IPL is unlike any of those other treatments--results were measurable almost immediately: after three treatments my bikini line was finished! Other areas have taken longer to complete, but after three treatments the hair was noticeably less dense, and I completed my legs after 6 treatment sessions! Modica recognizes the benefits of the IPL treatment in their pricing system too, which is important. When they can see a substantial hair elimination their pricing moves to a "touch-up" level, focusing on the area in need. Not only is it more affordable, it also minimizes the amount of time it takes to go through each treatment. I have taken immense pleasure in showing off Modica's fabulous work and encourage anyone to invest in this super alternative.
