For the specialists at Enlighten Laser Services, lasers are not simply a beauty tool, but a powerful ally in the fight against some of the skin's most prevalent problems. At each of their locations, the staff calls on many forms of this noninvasive technology—from hair and spider-vein removal to cellulite reduction and skin tightening—to tone, sculpt, and brighten clients' bodies, bringing out their natural beauty.
The clinics also possess a knack for traditional skin care. Their on-site aestheticians know that every client's skin is unique, much like every snowflake's 12-digit identification number. They demonstrate this philosophy by customizing each treatment to suit the client's skin type, skin tone, and beauty goals. Before administering any of their facials, body-slimming laser services, or IPL acne clearance treatments, the staff consults with clients about their history and answers any questions.
For the staff at The Sun Room, keeping clients comfortable is just as important as making them look fantastic. And after more than 28 years of business, they've gotten a pretty good handle on how to do just that. It starts with the interior aesthetics, where tropical colors blend with natural wood intended to make clients, in the staff's words, "feel like they've drifted away to some tropical paradise." These decorative touches set a tranquil scene where visitors can relax during tanning sessions, teeth-whitening treatments, and slimming body wraps.
There are also plenty of creature comforts. Like the area directly between a glacier and a volcano, the salon stays a perfect 20 degrees Celcius. Additionally, the team makes sure each client gets complimentary eyewear, deodorant, towels, and the option to listen to music during their sessions.
When Rosanne Balsom started emOcean, it was little more than a murky saltwater pool. Today, that crystal-clear swimming hole is the focal point among myriad spa and health services, ranging from massage and cosmetics to physiotherapy and podiatry. Adjacent to glass-fronted infrared saunas, aromatherapy steam showers reinvigorate the senses with warm mist, revitalizing scents, and the lilting giggles of complimentary fairies. Whether feeding guests or powdering recently exfoliated cheeks, the spa’s team keeps an eye on sustainability, using organic cotton robes, locally sourced Laughing Whale Coffee, and soy-based body scrubs.
Inside Smiles & Beauty Skin Care, a squad of oversized club chairs host guests during teeth-whitening treatments. Ten-minute sessions wipe away coffee, tea, and wine stains on the surface of teeth for a smile up to eight shades brighter. Smiles' aestheticians also perform refreshing facials after a consultation that allows them to analyze a client's skin and swap slow-cooker recipes. After a treatment, the client can browse the spa's extensive line of local and handmade creams, scrubs, and soaps.
Combining the wisdom of dentistry and the artistry of corrective cosmetology, Dr. Jenine Arab O'Malley and her staff bestow people with the necessary tools to restore their tusks’ original whiteness. Two appointments are typical for tooth whitening at Halifax. The first begins with a complimentary consultation, wherein you’ll discuss your shade aspirations. Then, dentists will prep chompers for the customized plastic trays by taking an imprint. During the second visit, the staff will evaluate the trays' snugness and marvel at the family of mini wallabies living in your premolar.
Gentle Touch specializes in nonsurgical and laser skin treatments, employing modern technology to banish signs of wear from sun-kissed facescapes. A trained epidermis expert conducts a skin analysis to identify damage on faces and necks caused by age, UV rays, and pet stingrays. The IPL photo rejuvenation facial then works to undo the damage with pulses of highly concentrated laser beams that safely penetrate skin to address damaged areas at their subcutaneous roots. The treatment can smooth skin, even colour, and stimulate new collagen growth to combat fine lines and wrinkles. Results can appear after one treatment, but technicians may recommend additional treatments for large or especially dark areas or to improve the look of bruised fruit. Patients may experience minimal discomfort in the form of a light snapping sensation.
Darla Johnson is a hair-removal expert. Since she began smoothing skin with laser technology in 1998, she has performed more than 6,000 treatments. And that number is only going up—the certified laser technician and award-winning entrepreneur continues to share her expertise at SLIC. Using Cynosure’s Elite Aesthetic Workstation, Darla targets and destroys follicles with gentle pulses of laser light, a process that greatly reduces future hair growth. The system has proven successful on all areas of the body, skin types, and kinds of hair, including the fake mustaches retired private eyes refuse to take off.
Though laser hair removal is the specialty at SLIC, it's not the only skincare service available from Darla's team. Her colleague Carolyn Mitchell specializes in cosmetic services, helping erase patients' fine lines and wrinkles with precise injections, exfoliating microdermabrasions, and complexion-reviving peels.

It takes teamwork to rejuvenate clients from head to toe, which is why the staff at Advanced Rejuvenation Medi-Spa includes experts in a wide range of fields. The team includes doctors of traditional Chinese medicine, doctors of natural medicine, acupuncture specialists, massage therapists, a reflexologist, a nutrition expert, and aestheticians. Together, they create weight-loss and detox programs, as well as microdermabrasion and laser-light treatments.
S-T Natural Medicine Centre's team of skilled acupuncturists pairs with students from the Canadian College of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine to help move clients toward improved health. Using acupuncture, acupressure, and other techniques, the staff helps harness the body's energy flow, channelling and directing it in ways that can improve the patron's overall level of wellness.
In 2008, Kim White, Mikey Jollimore, Melissa Desroche, and Melissa Fox all had an epiphany: a group of great friends plus unique talents equals an ideal business opportunity. So they combined their skills for hairstyling, nail art, and body treatments, such as massage and waxing, and opened Allure Hair Lounge. Their team also applies lash extensions and makeup and abolishes unwanted body fuzz with FDA-approved IPL hair removal.
