#Driven #Caring #Professional

In 2013, Alison was presented with an exciting opportunity to purchase the Ottawa Laser Clinic (OLC), a local business with an impressive, long-standing reputation in the esthetics community.  Having been in the industry for over a decade, Alison was incredibly knowledgeable and well-poised to carry the torch. So, along with her husband and business partner, Thomas, Alison made the leap as a business owner and has never looked back.

Since that time, OLC has gone on to further success, winning the Consumer Choice Award for best laser hair removal service (9 years in a row) and Top Choice Award for the past 5 years. Much of this success can be attributed to the expert level of skill and superb service that the OLC staff provide.  And despite OLC’s recent office expansion, they have still managed to maintain the warm, personalized boutique-feel that attracted loyal clients in the first place.

As Owner, Alison is by no means a behind-the-scenes presence at OLC. Instead, she is very much on the front lines, performing all of the services available. As well, she is passionate about giving back to the community. This generosity can be seen in OLC’s commitment to helping trans clients with hair removal, removal of radiation tattoos for breast cancer survivors, and tattoo removal for women who have escaped sex trafficking or abusive relationships.

Time away from the business is rare but when she gets it, Alison focuses on quality time with her husband, son and daughter and traveling when she gets the chance. She is also a cat mom to 3.

#Passionate #Focused #Friendly

Thomas is OLC’s behind the scenes guy, although occasionally you may find him filling in behind the front desk. Thomas handles OLC’s accounting, marketing and business development as well as fixing things from time to time. Thomas is Alison’s husband and the two have been in business together from the very start when Thomas was working full-time in the corporate world and part-time to help realize their dreams of becoming full-time entrepreneurs.

When not in his office at the clinic, you can find Thomas doing photography, playing hockey, making music with his band “Rainwater Whiskey” or enjoying time with Alison and their two children.

#Positive #Helpful #Driven

Maddy is our ultimate multi-tasker, keeping everything operating smoothly in the front office and beyond. She is the glue that holds OLC together! You’ve likely spoken with her when booking your appointments and we know without a doubt that her warm and professional first impressions are making us all look good here at OLC.

Maddy’s always got a good book on the go and also enjoys playing the piano (not at the same time, we assume).  She loves spending time with her friends, family and her dog named Stella.  This, we assume, does occasionally happen at the same time.

Dr. Lamia Wasseff

(She/Her) Dr. Lamia Wassef received her cosmetic injection training at one of Canada’s leading courses, Dr. Matin’s Rejuvenation and Training Centre. Then, due to her passion for medical aesthetics and drive to perform the best possible treatments, she took an advanced injection course to enhance her skillset for clients. Dr. Wassef understands how important each individual’s concerns are and that is why she strives to provide comfortable treatments that focus on the most natural looking results.

She has over 25 years of diversified medical experience and has run her own private practice in the Ottawa area for over 15 years. We’re very happy and excited to have someone with her warm and caring demeanour joining our OLC family.

Sarah was once the baby of the OLC family, but not anymore as she has quickly grown into an all-star service provider! Sarah has plenty of industry experience and it only takes a quick chat with her to see she is very passionate about medical esthetics. She’s armed with an RN diploma as well, so it’s obvious helping people is what she loves to do. Sarah is able to perform all laser and skin care treatments offered at OLC so you’ll always be in great hands no matter your needs.

Family is very important to Sarah, so when she isn’t at the clinic with her work family, you can find her spending quality time with her real family.

We’re very luck to have such a dedicated and devoted person join the OLC team. Emily was hired just before the COVID shutdown and hung in with us until we were able to re-open.
