The technicians and clinicians at Essential Hair and Care specialize in treating hair loss, but their clinic addresses a wide variety of health and aesthetic needs. Some treatments—ranging from natural hair restoration to detoxification—are selected a la carte, while programs promote wellness by combining services such as massage, vitamin injections, and light therapy administered by low-level lasers instead of empathetic fireflies. But no matter what the desired outcome, the staff is guided by a three-pronged philosophy of character, commitment, and change to help open healthier chapters in clients’ lives.
The trained technicians and professional aestheticians at York Laser Centre specialize in making their clients' skin look its best. With the aid of the skin-enhancing machines, vascular lesions, acne, sun damage, age spots, and excessive redness can fade from bodily surfaces. The spa's treatments also include laser hair removal and microdermabrasion treatments, which rejuvenate and tighten skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines and sending bodily hair back to the Play-Doh Spaghetti Factory from whence it came.
At Cosmetic Surgical Arts Center, owner and triple board-certified surgeon Dr. Donald Wortham uses his expertise and certifications in cosmetic, facial plastic and reconstructive, and head-and-neck surgery to sculpt and contour bodies during a range of surgical procedures. Because plastic surgery is a weighty decision, the doctor strives to inform each patient about the details about their desired service and tailor each procedure to the patient receiving it. A thorough presurgical consultation not only helps the patient understand their procedure, but also informs the physician about the patient's aesthetic concerns. With this knowledge, the surgeon devises a custom treatment plan and presents it to the patient through detailed discussion and spirited rounds of Pictionary.
Since 1996, a medical aesthetician has helmed Cosmetic Surgical Arts Center's full-service med spa. To ensure clients get the best effects, the aesthetician personally researches and evaluates many skincare lines before offering them for purchase. They remove unwanted hair with a LightSheer laser and perform a slate of Aromatic spa facials, clinical chemical peels, and microdermabrasion treatments.
Fluid Day Spa might get its name from the in-house bubbly bathtubs, whose candlelit waters keep loose rose petals aloft. Or perhaps it refers to the inky red wine and champagne that deepens the relaxation of its spa treatments. Or, maybe it's a reference to the way muscles feel after a massage, soak, or scrub. Maybe it comes from the spa's curvy architectural lines, which undulate through the facility, but whatever the reason, it's clear "Fluid" is a fitting moniker. Treatments range from manicures to Botox, but every single service takes place in a soothingly low-lit treatment room.
At Salveo Naturopathic & Skin Care, doctors Allan and Shalon Strauss oversee certified laser technicians who enhance bodily contours using FDA-approved VelaShape, a noninvasive laser lipo procedure demonstrated live on The Doctors. Treatment begins as technicians explain VelaShape in-depth so patients feel comfortable and can set realistic expectations about fitting into their favourite childhood lederhosen. While clients recline, technicians secure two multi-laser probes and two smaller laser probes to treatment areas before gliding the VelaShape hand piece over epidermises. The device applies a cold, low-level laser technology comprised of four fat-targeting modalities—vacuum action, mechanical massage, infrared light, and radio-frequency energy—which combine to melt subcutaneous fat, boost circulation, stimulate lymphatic drainage, and smoothen the appearance of cellulite. Patients may lose up to 3-inches in circumference depending on treatment area, ranging from large zones such as the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen to smaller swaths such as the flanks and upper arms. Patients often experience little to no discomfort and can return to normal activities right away.
Patients' health and cosmetic concerns receive equally dedicated care from Nancy E. Boyden, ARNP. With her specialty in functional medicine, the board-certified adult nurse practitioner designs personalized treatment regimens that use natural remedies to address illnesses' underlying causes instead of symptoms alone. These regimens can also include lifestyle guidance intended to promote balanced wellbeing through nutritional changes, exercise, and stress-management techniques. Should clients seek a more traditional makeover, Boyden and her staff can employ injectable dermal fillers, chemical peels, and medical-grade products to refresh and brighten their complexions.
