When you think of a spa in Whistler, you think of a luxury resort experience – Relaxing hot tubs, invigorating treatments, and Hollywood-worthy facials.
Now take all of that and add the latest, most innovative beauty tech. I was invited to The Spa At Nita Lake Lodge to discover their new cellulite reduction treatment, which is the hottest, new spa service in town. It’s called Verju and here’s why you’ll love it:
What Is Verju?
Think of Verju in the same way as you would an infrared or blue light facial treatment: It’s a painless, non-invasive technology, which targets specific problem areas and delivers unmatched results.
Verju is designed specifically for body contouring and cellulite reduction (hallelujah), and competes in the beauty tech market alongside treatments such as CoolSculpting and EmSculpt – just without the downtime or side effects!
So, How Does It Work?
The magic of Verju is made possible thanks to what the experts call a Low-level Green Laser. This is aimed at the target area and “scans” the surface of the skin in a continuous motion. There is no sound, no smell, and no feeling. As a result, I found it very comfortable. I think I lay on the treatment table in the dimly-lit room for about 20 minutes and took the time to rest my eyes and clear my thoughts – it’s all very relaxing!
While I snoozed, Verju engaged with fat cells by gently stimulating them. This encourages the release of energy and ultimately the absorption of fat, which causes a natural shrinkage of the cells. In addition, Verju increases dermal collagen (beauty buzzword of the moment), which helps to smooth the skin, especially during cellulite treatment.
Is Verju Safe?
Verju is cleared by the FDA and there are no recorded side effects from treatment. I’m told that clients may experience increased energy following their Verju – this is a normal result of the fat cell stimulation process. It is recommended to stay well hydrated before and after treatment in order to aid the body in performing its natural processes, but you’re already drinking ALL the water anyway, right?
Is Verju For Me?
The Spa At Nita Lake Lodge explained to me that Verju body sculpting and cellulite treatments can be beneficial for most people – including those with a BMI range exceeding that of any other laser sculpting device. Verju is also safe on tattoos, which I found to be interesting (tattoos are known to be an issue with treatments such as CoolSculpting).
Do I Get The Full Spa Experience?
Absolutely, you do! The Spa At Nita Lake Lodge offers Verju in their beautiful spa setting, which I found to be very nice. I prefer it to a doctor’s office or clinical setting and, let’s be honest, it’s way more discreet.
Verju clients have access to all spa facilities, too, which include rooftop hot tubs and a eucalyptus steam room. There is also complimentary use of spa robe and slippers as well as complimentary organic tea. I’d recommend taking a book or a magazine and enjoying some quality downtime!
The Verju Technician at The Spa advises recurring treatments for the best results. As an example, this could be a 6-week program, however I noticed results after the first two weeks.
How Much Does a Verju Treatment Cost?
It really depends on how large the area is. Verju may be used on most areas of the body including the thighs, buttocks, hips, stomach and back. For treatment-specific pricing, I’d recommend reaching out to The Spa At Nita Lake Lodge via email. Their Verju Technician will be able to get a better understanding of your needs and create a treatment plan with you.
Is This The Only Spa In Whistler Offering Beauty Tech?
The Spa At Nita Lake Lodge is leading the way in terms of beauty tech treatments in Whistler. Their growing portfolio includes Verju (exclusively in Whistler) as well as world-famous Hydrafacial and incredible, age-defying NuFace treatments.
I followed my Verju treatment with Ananda Facial Therapy. This healing and reviving treatment works on the marma points of the face and neck to remove blockages, stimulate the flow of energy and relieve stress and tension. I found it to be an incredibly relaxing experience and the perfect complementary treatment to Verju.
