Alex Lai

Medical Aesthetician & Skincare Advisor, Richmond Location

For Alex, the road to finding his passion has truly been an adventure. While struggling to find his path after graduating from high school, he tried his hand at many endeavours, excelling in each but never finding his true calling. It wasn’t all for naught, because Alex can make you the best bubble tea/bubble waffle ever, while giving you an in-depth tarot card reading, and of course, great skincare advice.

His journey with skincare began at Sephora, where he worked as a Skincare Consultant. It was there that he discovered his passion for skin, which led him to his first ever facial at Project Skin MD®; he was immediately hooked. That facial that inspired him to learn more about the world of medical-grade skincare, and ultimately to apply for the position of Skincare Advisor at Project Skin MD® Richmond, where he puts his already vast knowledge of skincare to use every single day. Alex is now enrolled at Blanche MacDonald, where he is working towards his goal of one day becoming a renowned skin guru. In the meantime, if you have any questions about skincare, Alex is your guy!

PS. Alex can also give you guidance in repelling negative energy; a great add-on to your skincare consultation, right?
