About

About Ageless Living Cold Lake

Ageless Living in Cold Lake was originally established in 2012, as CLMC Skin Wellness within the Cold Lake Medical Clinic. In November of 2015, CLMC Skin Wellness moved to their downtown Cold Lake location, where they initiated the re-branding to Ageless Living–continuing their offering of trusted treatments with the latest technology to patients in the Lakeland region. Ageless Living began in Victoria, BC, performing a variety of medical and cosmetic treatments to enhance the quality of life of their patients.

Our philosophy is to always use cutting-edge, evidence-based treatments. Many of our patients are go-getters, with the desire to be always improving, always moving forward–and we’re here to help them on their confident journey. The field of aesthetic medicine and dermatology is ever evolving, like all of medicine, with the trends and best practices shifting towards minimally and non-invasive treatment methods. Many of our procedures are quick, painless and can be carried out in as little as a lunch break.

Lastly, we don’t limit ourselves to aesthetic treatments. We offer medical treatments that your local general practitioner may not be able to provide, so that you can improve your quality of life and live the lifestyle you are meant to live.

We are committed to providing unrivalled customer service, trusted advice, and personalized treatments designed for each of our patients’ unique needs.
