"I now use many of the noninvasive medical services I offer at my clinics to fight the aging process. I have personally never felt or looked better and I am now in my forties," says Eleanor Welsh, founder of Skin Vitality Medical Clinic. Using Elos laser and radio frequency technology, her team of registered nurses and registered practical nurses is able to reshape bodies, erase body hair, and tighten skin with the push of a button. Their skill with beauty injectables comes from extensive training from Allergan and other pharmaceutical companies, giving them the deft ability to leave clients' faces more youthful than a rosebud in a sippy cup. For more dramatic results, Dr. Conor B. Turley performs cosmetic surgeries such as tucks, augmentations, and lifts.
The staff at A Touch of Paradise Esthetics boast expertise that covers nearly every square inch of the body, and they perform services with the singular aim of making guests look and feel their best. Starting at the toes, pedicures doll up feet for trips to the beach, and waxing and laser hair removal rid the entire body of unwanted bristle. More than 10 types of facials bring out each client's inner glow, and more powerful treatments such as microdermabrasion are brought in to deal with deep wrinkles and frown lines. The staff also work to maintain a relaxing, spa-like atmosphere, which is why clients are asked to turn off their phones and leave extra-crinkly potato-chip bags in the car.
Beauty-Full Spa is a catchall for spa, med spa, and wellness services. The staff schedules everything from facials and massages to diamond peel microdermabrasions and laser tattoo-removal treatments. But the staff pays attention to more than just appearances. They also offer weight loss programs, cleanses, and detoxifying infrared sauna sessions, which simulate the conditions of the rain forests on Venus.
The talents of Labelle Salon and Spa's seven knowledgeable stylists and aestheticians are evident in the sharp and sophisticated hairstyles of their clientele. Ladies' cuts ($48 and up) and colours ($45 and up) are so forward-thinking that customers are banned from most major casinos. The expert coiffeurs at Labelle's are also happy to shape the locks of children ($16 and up) and men ($26 and up). Climb up the restored staircase to experience the spa portion of Labelle's, where aromatherapy oils and soft music suffuse innovative pampering treatments that relax clients from head to heel. From 75-minute facials ($80 and up) to the two-hour ultimate pedicure ($70), Labelle's services take their sweet time, providing a warm and welcome respite from holiday shopping and hordes of rabid yetis. Put stress in a bind with a seaweed wrap (half body $80; full body $120) that expels toxins and nourishes skin, or repair the ravages of scurvy and classical-guitar playing with an hour-long French manicure ($40), including mask, paraffin, massage, and polish of your choice.
Visitors to Brooklin Village Spa shouldn't be fooled by its quaint exterior. The interior may be every bit as welcoming and lovely, but the spa technicians who work there really know their stuff. Aestheticians tend to skin with diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wands, cold-laser therapy, and custom facials, and airbrush specialists bedeck limbs in warm, summery tones without exposing skin to harmful sun or shrink rays. Massages, laser hair removal, nailcare, and waxing round out the list of services.
Within Paradise Wellness Center & Spa's 7,000 square feet of relaxation and beautifying facilities, spa specialists make clients over from head to toe using products from brands such as Dermalogica and G.M Collin. Visitors pass beneath an ornate chandelier as they enter through the spa's glass doors. With the ProArt NailDesign printer, customers can reward nails for their tireless work popping strangers' bubblegum by taking instant pictures and printing the captured image onto each of their finger shields. While focusing on faces, the staff can sculpt new hairstyles or cleanse visages during facials using products such as caviar. After completing their new beauty makeovers, patrons can focus on slimming down enough to fit back into their favourite crawl spaces during Zumba fitness classes.
