” Thank You so much for your gentle treatments Dr. Crippen ”
— Monika Schnarre, Actress and Supermodel
I’m just writing to say thank you Dr. Crippen! I love my now much more symmetrical fuller lips! I feel the best I ever had in my life! The asymmetry always made me quite self conscious, and I used to load on makeup to try to detract from it! I’m wearing barely any anymore! I LOVE IT! I’m so happy with it and I will be returning next year! You made me feel like the best version of myself! THANK YOU!

Laser Hair Removal
Received the laser hair treatment here at this Kelowna clinic last May with the hope of finding something that would last at least through the end of the summer. This definitely did the trick. There was still no hint of hair at the end of August, so I’m assured that this is going to be just as long-lasting as they promised. It was more than affordable enough to grab next year if I need it. Worth the trip to Kelowna. Thank you Dr Crippen!

Great clinic and doctor. All of my questions about laser hair removal were covered completely in the consultation, and everything went just about how he said it would. It got rid of all the hair. I can run my hand up and down my legs and not feel a single hair. None of it hurt, which was great since I’m used to Brazilian waxes. I would recommend laser hair removal based on my experience, and this Kelowna clinic did it very well.

This clinic has full-stop the best environment I’ve ever been in for care. I chose them because my normal laser hair removal place was closed, but they are the only place I will go now. The staff is all very friendly and during the actual operations they made sure I was completely comfortable through the whole thing. I look forward to every visit.

I had a pretty good experience. At least, there was nothing that I can remember that really went wrong. I had the laser hair removal service and then I had two different moles removed at the same location. I always got the times I wanted for all of my operations, and every operation worked completely as they said it would. I have no complaints.

I still haven’t grown any hair back on my legs 4 months after I had the laser hair removal at DermMedica. They told me I could expect the results to last a long time, and I’m already extremely satisfied with how long this treatment has lasted. I would recommend them.

I noticed significant differences after only a single visit with the laser. By a couple weeks time after the treatments, there were barely any signs of acne, and even the surrounding redness was reduced to my normal skin tone. On recommendation, I also tried the chemical peel at the same location. Between the two of them, my acne is better-managed than it’s been at any time in my life.

I was deeply impressed with the work of this clinic. We visited for my teenage daughter after over-the-counter medications had failed her. The acne removal treatment recommended and performed by Doctor Crippen was incredibly effective. We’ve been back for a couple more treatments over the years, and they are all as effective. I wanted to note in particular that he and the staff had a wonderful manner while administering treatment. My daughter typically hates clinical environments but she always felt very comfortable here.

This is the only place that I’ve gone for age spots since it opened. I loved how easily I could schedule at short notice, and the commitment the staff showed to making sure that I understood everything I wanted to know. I was treated very well here.
— Yolanda Tighman Sep. 05, 2014
I have had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Crippen for awhile now, he does botox injections for me every 3 months. I was very nervous at first, but the staff and Dr. Crippen made me feel at ease right away. He is a wonderful Doctor, very caring and does a fantastic job. I highly recommend Dr. Crippen. Staff is also excellent!!! Thank you.

Dr. Crippen is an absolute maser with Botox. I’ve had little filler implants done around my face, my ears and lips so far, and each operation came out looking exactly the way I had hoped. Not too puffy, not too thin.
— John Savill Sep 04, 2014
This place does the best work of all the skincare clinics I’ve tried in the Vancouver area. I go back periodically for new botox and juvederm injections, and they always make it look brand new and just right every single time. This place has earned my business.
— Greg Monte Aug. 26, 2014
Dr. Crippen gave me the most effective cellulite treatment that I have ever received. Two weeks out of the procedure, I am still waking up shocked at how amazing my legs look.

Chemical Peel Treatment
I loved how little time it took to set up the chemical peel treatment and to get it. Your clinic made the day very convenient for me, especially since two other clinics had already told me that they couldn’t fit me in that. Your chemical peel was also one of the most effective that I’ve ever had. I’m extremely satisfied.
— SeasonDucharme Sep. 5, 2014
I had excellent results with a Coolsculpting operation at this clinic. Dr. Crippen took me through everything I wanted to know before we started, and I was still surprised at how easy it was. It took a little longer than I would have liked for the results to kick in, but I didn’t change anything and I lost weight.
— Ami Hamann Aug 26, 2014
My coolsculpting treatment was first performed at this clinic, at the Kelowna location, which might be their only one. I’ve never had coolsculpting performed anywhere else, so I can’t judge the quality compared to other clinics, but it was really effective. The procedure was completely painless and didn’t even feel uncomfortable. The easiest weight I have ever lost.
— Ron Woodhouse Jul 06, 2014
Dr Crippen performed the Juvederm treatment in a highly professional, caring and pleasant manner. I found the entire experience to be a comfortable one and despite having some initial reservations/nervousness, both he and his extremely competent staff, made me feel totally at ease and reassured. I cannot speak highly enough of the entire experience of being treated by Dr Crippen and his staff.

I chose DermMedica hoping they would be able to help me with my lips. Dr. Crippen recommended a Juvederm filler, and I’m thrilled with both how easy it was and how great it looks. I was particularly pleased with the end result of the lip filler because I’ve had friends with that swollen look, and I did not want any part of that.
— Harold Elliott Sep. 2, 2014
I received my first Juvederm fillers at the DermMedica clinic in Kelowna. The quality of the fillers there surprised me a lot compared to the problems that some of my friends were having with other clinics. I also love how easily I can schedule the maintenance injections. It usually only takes 15 minutes.

Pearly Penile Papules
I choose DermMedica because they were one of the only clinics near me that offered treatment for pearly penile papules. The condition was extremely unpleasant for me, so I’m really happy with the speed and effectiveness of the treatment that Dr. Crippen recommended and performed. They were all taken care of in one visit.
— Alfred Tupper Sep 06, 2014
Dr. Crippen is very thoughtful, and that makes the appointments go so much easier. He did whatever was possible to make sure that I was comfortable on my last visit, and the treatment that he used for my Rosacea was more effective than I could have imagined. I’m very glad that my sister told me about this clinic.
— JacquelineFiscus Sep. 02, 2014
I have come to DermMedica for several years to treat my rosacea, and they have given me many reasons to come back. They are very courteous, my appointments have always been on time, and they’ve proven to be very effective at managing these symptoms.
—Alexandra B. Sept. 14 2013
I have been going to Dr. Crippen for three years now for Sclerotherapy and have been very happy with the results. The staff is friendly, the place atmosphere is comfortable and relaxing. I definitely recommend Dr. Crippen.
Skin Tag Removal
I loved how fast and painless the skin tag removal was here. They feel very sensitive on my back so I was expecting shooting nerve pain. I didn’t feel a thing at all. I will definitely be returning here for future treatments.
— Courtney Burdett Aug. 21, 2014
I’ve chosen DermMedica for all three of the tattoos that I’ve had removed. I only chose them the first time because they were conveniently close to me, but they treated me well enough that I was happy to go back for the other two tattoos. The procedure was more comfortable than I expected. There was a little pain, but it wasn’t worse than getting the tattoo.
— Crystal Aug. 25, 2014
My least painful tattoo removal was performed here by Doctor Crippen. He was really attentive to me the entire time and really precise when it came to the tattoo removal. I’m very satisfied with the way my skin looks with the tattoo gone.
— SetzerSharron Oct. 12, 2014
Visited for vein clinic services in 2012. Great experience in every way. They had the right treatments to help me with my symptoms, they were ready to see me immediately and I was treated politely and respectfully the entire time. The treatment they administered also worked even better than I hoped. I am in a lot less pain now thanks to them.
— Jonas Dale Sep. 06, 2014
My legs look and feel so much better after every session. I’m pleased with how I’m treated when I come here, and not oversold with expensive laser options.

I live in the Yukon, and even though it is more convenient to travel to Vancouver or Edmonton for treatment, I choose to travel to Kelowna once a year for an appointment with Dr. Crippen. The clinic always accommodates my schedule and provides exceptional service. I highly recommend this clinic and Dr. Crippen, who is extremely friendly, highly skilled and doesn’t make you feel rushed. I will continue to travel to Kelowna to see Dr. Crippen, as I am extremely pleased with the service.
