Ashlie Hill – Top Image Studio (Community Futures Ventures)

  • Ventures Success Stories

Ashlie hill 3Before starting Top Image Studio in Yorkton Saskatchewan, entrepreneur Ashlie Hill was a home-based journeyman hairstylist with nothing more than a mirror, chair, and shower hose to operate her hairstyling services from. Eventually, Ashlie acquired two employees and opened up Top Image Studio which offers hairstyling, medical aesthetics, and laser therapy.

Ashlie sought Community Futures Ventures’ support thirteen years ago, however recently came to Community Futures Ventures to assist her with the purchase of the Venus Freeze Plus; a technology that would allow Ashlie to utilize her medical aesthetics certification and provide skin tightening services. The Venus Freeze Plus uses “pulsed magnetic fields and radio frequency to consistently and uniformly heat the skin from the inside out” which triggers the body’s natural healing process to increase collagen and elastin fibre production (Venus Concept Canada). Venus Freeze Plus treatments are painless and are compared to that of a hot stone massage, with each session lasting between 15 to 30 minutes and 6-10 treatment sessions are required for optimal results.

With the help of Community Futures Ventures, Ashlie was able to expand her services to include wrinkle reduction, skin tightening, body contouring, and cellulite reduction through the Venus Freeze Plus. Ashlie claims that because of Community Futures Ventures “everything fell into place”. Top Image Studio is one of few providers in Saskatchewan who offer the Venus Freeze Plus’ services. Ashlie’s passion for medical aesthetics has also led her to purchase the Venus Glow to add HydraFacial’s to her list of services.
