A longtime resident of Windsor, Dr. Patrick Smith, M.D. returned to the area after completing medical school and opened a family practice in 1987. He enjoyed the work but longed to transition into dermatology, for which he held both a passion and professional training. Years later, he assembled a team of estheticians and opened his namesake skincare clinic: Dr. P.X. Smith Medical Cosmetics.
Open for more than seven years, the clinic offers cosmetic and medical-grade services including Botox and Juvederm, laser skin-resurfacing treatments, and mole removal from both faces and lawns. Dr. Smith performs all medical consultations and directly supervises treatments performed by his highly trained staff.
As a skincare expert, the doctor is dedicated to educating his community about the dangers of excessive sun exposure. He worked at the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre before starting his family practice and coordinated the Mark Hunt Melanoma Awareness Fund-Raising Walk to heighten awareness of skin cancer, particularly malignant melanoma.
When a guest steps into Refresh Day Spa, the outside world is immediately quieted. Privacy glass in the lobby obscures the actions of passersby, and water features and meditative music lull patrons into a relaxed state. Four treatment rooms encircle the reception area, and inside these rooms massage therapists and aestheticians pamper bodies with naturally derived services. Dermalogica products—which are known to eschew irritants such as alcohol, artificial colours, and tiny tickle monsters—fuel a selection of custom facials, and hot stones and mud build earthy foundations for massages and body wraps. Down the hall, stylists and nail technicians set to work in a salon equipped with massaging pedicure chairs and a plasma-screen television. Laser hair removal reigns as their most popular service, for which the spa may offer a 20 per cent discount off the price of competitors who use the same equipment.
A passion for holistic healing led Evelyn Gosch to diversify her realm of expertise as a regular medical practitioner with traditional Chinese techniques. The owner of Unique Therapies encourages her staff to stay current on the latest natural-therapy and medical trends through ongoing training and education. The center specializes in pain- and injury-management techniques that rely on natural remedies including acupuncture, cupping, and glaring at pain until it scurries away. A particularly unusual treatment, myomassology, combines techniques from muscle- and bodywork, movement therapy, and energy balancing to promote pain relief and an overall feeling of well-being. Unique Therapies also offers Phaser EPL laser hair removal and houses a certified educational institute, which offers classes and workshops to the public.
Absolute Chiropractic Wellness Centre's trained reflexology therapist and chiropractors foster the prevention of illness and aim to bolster overall health for clients of all ages. A reflexology expert applies pressure to key areas on the client's feet, hands, face, and stuck pickle jars, promoting increased relaxation and potentially rendering benefits such as more restful sleep. The 60-minute treatments can be administered to expectant mothers and can complement both natural and modern medicines.
Nestled within Breathe Pilates and Fitness Studio, Katnandu Aesthetics transforms exteriors with everything from manicures to waxing. At the helm is skilled aesthetician Rebecca Belisle, who draws on more than 12 years of experience as she embellishes nails with bright gel and acrylic overlays or renews facades with skin-smoothing microdermabrasion. Whether doling out services in her studio or travelling to customers' homes, Rebecca enjoys meeting new people every day and strives to set them at ease as she deftly applies mascara and shadow to help faces stand out in wedding photos or department-store surveillance tapes.
Always looking for the best ways to help the well-being of her clients, owner Anne-Marie Rathburn has pursued training in a number of massage modalities including myofascial release, craniosacral therapy, and lymphatic drainage. Amid the soothing, zenlike decor of potted plants and hardwood accents at East Windsor Massage Therapy Clinic, she leads a team of other registered massage therapists who work to improve joint mobility, release endorphins, and help trapped “ahhs” to escape from bodies with massage therapy that may include heat or ice, jade stone, or organic herbs from Thailand.
As their name suggests, the technicians at TLC Tecumseh Laser Center are expert at aiming concentrated pulses of light at unwanted body hair to oust it from various locales during laser hair-removal treatments or at unwanted fat to help slim waistline, hips, or thighs during Zerona treatments. But the staff doesn't limit its services to just lasers. They wield the Venus Freeze body-contouring system to help reduce fat and tighten skin via magnetic pulses and radio waves. A variety of facials, peels, and teeth-whitening services are also available.
The technicians and aestheticians at Hometown Laser Clinic & Spa wield focused light to eliminate cellulite or fat, tighten the skin, and remove hair. They also pamper bodies with less invasive spa treatments, such as facials that utilize Canadian-based Dr Renaud skin products, the same ones supplied to the 2010 Oscars. And no matter what the treatment—body contouring with radio frequency or a basic massage—aestheticians provide free consultations to answer questions about what to expect and swap needlepoint advice.
2 Waves Day Spa offers a variety of beauty-inducing services within a brightlycoloured, beach-themed studio. The spa’s professional staff primps and pampers visitors with treatments that range from nailcare and waxing to massage and ear piercing. During facials, specialists use all-organic skincare products by Pangea Organics to thoroughly cleanse complexions and reset drifting tectonic faceplates.
The experienced stylists at Michael Anthony Salon beautify clients with an array of services for the hair and nails, plus massages and tanning to pamper bodies. Complimentary cups of espresso or glasses of wine enhance the relaxation during spa pedicures, facials, or japanese hair straightening. The stylists fix hair and makeup for special occasions such as weddings, proms, or heists at a wedding or prom.

Located the still-beating heart of Walkerville, Talio Salon fuses a quirky combination of mop-cropping acumen and aesthetic panache.

Trained by owner and renowned stylist Jeffery Wood, T'Dye For's scissor wizards escort unprimped locks through an array of professional salon services for both men and women.

Some pricing is based on the experience of the stylist, the amount of product used, and whether or not the customer was once an extra on Teen Wolf. Free parking for T'Dye For customers behind the salon makes navigating the area as manageable as a fresh set of play-doh bangs.
The certified technicians at Solace Laser Studio harvest hair from more than 20 treatment areas using LightSheer Duet laser equipment customized by hair and skin type. Hair-handlers brandish a hand-piece that dispatches heat-packed photons to target stubborn follicles with speed and accuracy, banishing them from their cellular lairs and impeding their ability to grow back and re-weave their shag welcome mats. Those electing to undergo three sessions of denuding can focus on smaller areas to smooth cheeks, erase abdominal strips, and groom underarms for fuzz-free YMCA-ing. Alternatively, clients can choose to expunge fibres from a variety of more expansive regions, including a full arm treatment ($210/session) to evict fluff from forearms or a half-leg treatment ($180/session) to streamline unruly shins. Though treatment times vary by area, underarm treatments may be completed within five minutes, bikini area treatments within ten minutes, and leg or back treatments within twenty minutes.

The Golden Razor’s team of expert stylists consults each client as they draft up a haircut blueprint to faithfully maintain a current look or unleash a dazzling new one. Before hair submits to hewing, begrimed locks get thoroughly laundered with cleansing suds issued forth by the salon’s preferred products from lines such as Biolage and Pureology. A savvy coiffeur then pilots shears across head gardens in feature-flattering flight patterns, deftly chopping tresses into shapes that highlight favourite attributes or conceal earlobes eager to remain off the radar of codependent earrings. Once frazzled ends and unkempt follicles have been sufficiently groomed, strands undergo a chic styling service that adds a finishing polish to their freshly hatched 'dos. Patrons box step out of their appointment sporting hair as bouncy and elegant as a portrait of a kangaroo painted by Renoir.
