Welcome to Arbutus Laser

Our number one priority has always been safety, and there is now (more than ever) a significant responsibility for everyone in this regard. We have had to seriously rethink our ways of being in our space and how we can best care for you under these new conditions. Our goal is for you to come to the clinic with confidence, knowing that we are doing everything we can to keep you and our staff safe.

A Few Notes On COVID Safety Protocol:

– We ask that you do not visit if you have a fever, or any kind of cough. If you have been travelling anywhere outside of Metro Vancouver, we cannot see you until you have quarantined for the full 14-days.

– A staff member will greet you at the door and check your temperature with a touchless thermometer.

– Hand-sanitizer will be available throughout the clinic. We ask that you use it upon arrival.

– Our reception area now has minimal seating. If you are arriving by vehicle, we will provide you with a dedicated phone number so that you can call to check-in from the comfort of your vehicle. If you are not arriving by car, we ask that you do not arrive more than a few minutes early. It will be challenging to accommodate late arrivals; please allow yourself time to get to the clinic.

– Please come to your appointment without makeup on (if we are treating your face), as washroom access is more limited.

– All persons are required to wear a mask in the facility. Please bring your own.

– Any staff member that has direct contact with a patient will be wearing additional protective equipment as appropriate. We promise it is the same smiling face you know hiding behind that mask.

– Our treatment rooms will be thoroughly sanitized between visits.  

– All of our staff will have their temperature checked daily, and will continue to practice social-distancing in and out of the clinic.

Thank you very much (in advance) for your patience and cooperation during this time. Due to the circumstances, we are operating at a reduced volume to ensure everyone’s safety. Please also take into consideration that if any of our staff are not feeling well, we may have to adjust your appointment. 

Virtual Consultations:

We are now offering virtual consultations and reviews if you would prefer to discuss your treatments with us virtually, instead of visiting the office. Please give us a call to book your appointment, if you would like to review your situation.

What's New At The Clinic

We are excited to introduce our newest physicians to the clinic. Meet Dr. Nico Eichhorst and Dr. Laura Riley!

Dr. Nicolas Eichhorst M.D., C.C.F.P.

Joined the ALC in 2018, Dr. Eichhorst studied medicine at Queen’s University and completed his residency at McGill. His background includes emergency and family medicine with obstetrics which makes him a perfect well-rounded fit for our facility. He is also a clinical instructor with the faculty of medicine at UBC. Dr. Eichhorst enjoys hands on patient care with a focus on preventative medicine. He specializes in facial injections. He is an active member of the American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery (www.aslms.org) and the College of Physicians & Surgeons of British Columbia (www.cpsbc.ca).


Dr. Laura Riley BSc., M.D. C.C.F.P.

Joined the ALC in 2018. We are very excited to have her join the team. Dr. Riley is a family physician who completed her medical training and residency at UBC. She currently works part-time as a GP in Vancouver and enjoys Obstetrics (delivering babies). She has trained extensively with Dr. Boey and Dr. Mintz in injectable neuromodulators and fillers and has completed courses with the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine. Dr. Riley offers a full range of facial injections but specializes in lips and neuromodulators.


Our patients come first, which is why we have spent 5+ years looking for physicians and staff who will carry the same value of patient care as we do.

Dr. Eichhorst and Dr. Riley come to us with a wealth of knowledge. Dr. Boey and Dr. Mintz are dedicated to share their laser & injectables expertise with them. Furthermore, the entire staff are committed to ensuring patients are receiving the highest level of care at the clinic.
