Advanced-practice nurse Leeanne Mercier specializes in keeping women healthy, but she also focuses on their personal comfort. After 20 years of providing preventative healthcare to the indigenous women of the arctic, Mercier opened her own clinic for women's health in 2004. She now owns All About You Medical Spa, where she takes an individualized approach to beauty and wellness. Aestheticians put patients at ease with advanced training in services such as cosmetic injectables, skin-tightening derma-roller treatments, and nonsurgical liposuction sessions.
In the turquoise-walled Thai room, Asian-inspired art and lush tapestries create a cozy, welcoming backdrop for women's wellness exams.

The massage room also features a fireplace, along with a painting depicting a window-like view into an exotic landscape.
Clients relax as they sip frothy beers and tart ciders amid the elegant white décor of The Wax Bar's lobby before following aestheticians back to a private treatment room for one of a broad repertoire of signature hair-removal services. Staff at The Wax Bar's two locations aim to make waxing or sugaring a luxurious and dignified experience, soothing clients' jangling nerves with drinks from the wet bar. Each aesthetician boasts a repertoire of discomfort-minimizing tricks to ensure sugaring and waxing services for men and women's brows, backs, and bikinis go as swiftly and painlessly as possible. After follicles have said their tearful goodbyes to unwanted hair, aestheticians apply aftercare products and advise clients on the best way to reduce irritation on freshly bare skin. Staff members also offer facials whose targeted therapies incorporate products from Dermalogica and Aveda.
